Kindly pay proper attention to this sections which describe article structure, layout and referencing. The article must be prepared using double spacing, 12 point font, Times New Roman. All manuscripts must contain the essential elements needed to convey your manuscript, for example, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Conclusions, Artwork and Tables with Captions.

1. Types of Paper

International Annals of Science publishes the following article types-

1.1 Research Article

Research articles should present new experimental studies in the elaborate form that constitute a significant contribution to knowledge.

1.2 Review Article

Review articles should be balanced with the objective analyses of the current research topics with descriptions of relevant scientific literature and discussions that are easy to grasp for the audience of any Science related discipline. Review articles should provide the authors' insight into future directions and their opinion of the major challenges faced by researchers in the field. They should be around 15-30 double-spaced typed pages.

1.3 Short Review

International Annals of Science publishes short review or mini-review for researchers who wish to summarize a field of scientific research and share this work as widely as possible. Short Review papers provide an overview of the main developments on a particular topic, with an emphasis on recent developments, and sketch an outlook on future developments. They should be no longer than 15 double-spaced typed pages and 8 figures.

1.4 Short Communication

Short communications are the one that should present new important findings in a brief form. They should be no longer than six double-spaced typed pages and 4 figures.

1.5 Case Report

Case reports contain a medical profile of the patient for sharing an unusual or novel occurrence for medical, scientific, or educational purposes. Case reports submitted to International Annals of Science should describe how the case report is rare or unexpected as well as its educational and scientific merits in the introduction section. Images should be cropped only to show the key feature and protect the patient’s anonymity as far as possible. Each medical case report will require ethical approval letter and a set of Declaration as described in the section policy. This journal will not consider case reports describing preventive or therapeutic interventions, as these generally require stronger evidence.

2. Cover letter

Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text'. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.

4. Title page information

4.2 Author's complete detail: Kindly Provide following detail for each author-
Full Name:
Highest Qualification:
Department:
Post/Rank (If student, provide course name and course year):
Affiliation (College/University/Institute) with postal address:
email id:
Note: If any author is a Bachelor/Master Degree student, Kindly submit your article to Advanced Journal of Graduate Research. In "International Annals of Science", we are not accepting article which includes Bachelor/Master students as a co-author.

4.3 Affiliation: Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done and current address if different than the working place). Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name.

4.4 Corresponding Author: Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that the e-mail address is given and that contact details are kept up to date by the corresponding author.

5. Abstract

The manuscript should contain an abstract. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. The abstract should be self-contained and citation-free and should not exceed 300 words. Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.

6. Keywords

Immediately after the abstract, provide at least 6 keywords related to your work. These keywords will be used for indexing purpose.
Effective Keywords include phrases that may not appear in the title and abstract but link the work to the wider field of research.

7. Introduction

This section should be succinct, with no subheadings. State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

8. Materials and Methods

This part should contain sufficient detail to reproduce reported data. It can be divided into subsections if several methods are described. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.

9. Theory/calculation

A Theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction and lay the foundation for further work. In contrast, a Calculation section represents a practical development from a theoretical basis.

10. Results and Discussion

This section may each be divided by subheadings or may be combined. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. This should explore the significance of the results of the work, don’t repeat them. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

This section should clearly explain the main conclusions of the work, highlighting its importance and relevance.

12. Acknowledgments

All acknowledgments (if any) should be included in a separate section before the references and may include list of peoples who contributed to the work in the manuscript but not listed in the author list, supporting grants, presentations, and so forth. The name of funding agencies should be written in full.

13. References

Author(s) are responsible for ensuring that the information in each reference is complete and accurate. All references must be numbered consecutively and citations of references in the text should be identified using numbers in square brackets (e.g., “as explained by AIJR [1]”; “as discussed in many reports [2]-[6]”). All references should be cited within the text; otherwise, these references will be automatically removed. All cited references should be listed after acknowledgment section in IEEE style with doi or URL (link). For example -

[3] W. S. Author, “Title of paper,” Name of Journal in italic, vol. x, no. x, pp. xxx-xxx, Abbrev. Month, year. doi or URL (link)

Main features of citation style are given as-

  • The author name format is, "first name (Initial), middle name (Initial) and last name". This differs from other styles where author's last name is first.

Figures should be supplied in bitmap formats (Photoshop, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, etc.). Bitmap images should be of 500 dpi resolution at least unless the resolution is intentionally set to a lower level for scientific reasons. If a bitmap image has labels, the image and labels should be embedded in separate layers.

15. Preparation of Tables

Tables should be cited consecutively in the text. Every table must have a descriptive title and if numerical measurements are given, the units should be included in the column heading.
