Instructions for Authors

Global Scientific Journal of Biology (GSJB) welcome the submission of manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence. Papers will be published shortly after acceptance.

Electronic submission of manuscripts is encouraged, provided that the text, figures and tables are included in a single Microsoft Word file (in Arial font).

Article Types

Regular Articles: must describe new confirmed findings, and experimental procedures should be given in sufficient detail for others to verify the work. The length of a full paper should be the minimum required to describe and interpret the work clearly.

Short Communications: are suitable for recording the results of giving details of new models or hypotheses, techniques, apparatus or innovative methods. The style of main sections need not conform to that of full-length papers. Short communications are 2 to 4 printed pages (6 to 12 manuscript pages).

Reviews: and perspectives covering topics of current interest are welcomed. Reviews should not be longer than 4 to 6 printed pages (12 to 18 manuscript pages). Reviews are also peer-reviewed.

 

Review Process

All manuscripts are reviewed by an editor and members of the editorial board or qualified outside reviewers. Decisions will be made as fast as possible, and the journal strives to return reviewers’ comments to authors shortly. The editorial board will re-review manuscripts that are accepted pending revision. It is the goal of the GSJ to publish manuscripts shortly after submission.

 

Regular Articles

All pages numbered starting from the title page and the manuscript must be typed double-spaced.

The Title should describ the contents of the paper briefly. The Title Page should include the authors' full names and affiliations, the name of the corresponding author along with phone, fax and e-mail information.

The Abstract should be 100 to 200 words in length, informative and completely self-explanatory, briefly present the topic, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and conclusions. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided. Complete sentences, active verbs, and the third person should be used, and the abstract should be written in the past tense. No literature should be cited.

About 3 to 10 key words that will provide indexing references should be listed following the abstract.

Non-standard Abbreviations should be used only when the full term is very long and used often. Each abbreviation should be spelt out and introduced in parentheses the first time it is used in the text. Authors should use the solidus presentation (mg/ml). Standard abbreviations (such as ATP and DNA) need not be defined.

 

Introduction should give a clear statement of the problem, the proposed approach or solution, and the relevant literature on the subject. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

 

Materials and Methods should be complete enough to allow experiments to be reproduced. However, previously published procedures should be cited, and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Only truly new procedures should be described in detail. Capitalize trade names and include the manufacturer's name and address. Methods in general use need not to be described in detail.

 

Results must be presented clearly and should be written in the past tense when describing findings in the author(s)'s experiments. Previously published findings should be written in the present tense. Results should be explained, but largely without referring to the literature.

 

Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained in this and in past studies on this topic. State the conclusions in a few sentences at the end of the paper. The Results and Discussion sections can include subheadings, and when appropriate, both sections can be combined.

 

Acknowledgments of people, funds, grants, etc should be brief.

Tables should be designed to be as simple as possible and be kept to a minimum. Tables must be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend and should be prepared in Microsoft Word.. The details of the methods used in the experiments should be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph forms or repeated in the text.


Figure legends 
should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet. Graphics should be prepared using applications capable of generating high resolution JPEG, GIF, TIFF or PowerPoint before pasting in the Microsoft Word manuscript file. Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text. Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is clear and understandable without reading the text of the manuscript.

 

References: In the text, a reference identified by means of an author‘s name should be followed by the date of the reference in parentheses. When there are more than two authors, only the first author‘s name should be mentioned, followed by ’et al‘. If an author cited has had two or more works published during the same year, the reference, both in the text and in the reference list, should be identified by a letter like ’a‘ and ’b‘ after the date to distinguish the works.

Examples:

(Kelebeni, 1983), (Usman and Abudaya, 1993), (Chege, 1998; Chong, 1985a,b; Smartha, 1993,1994), (Martin et al., 2001)

 

References should be listed at the end of the paper in square brackets [1]. The sentence punctuation should be put after the brackets [2]. Multiple references [2], [3] are each numbered with separate brackets [1]-[3]. In sentences, refer simply to the reference number, as in [3]. Do not use ‘Ref. [3]’ or ‘reference [3]’ except at the beginning of a sentence.

The list of references should be arranged in the order of citation in text, NOT in alphabetical order. The text body of the reference has to be 8 pt, single spaced.

Articles in preparation or articles submitted for publication, unpublished observations, personal communications, etc. should not be included in the reference list but should only be mentioned in the article text (e.g., A. Kingori, University of Nairobi, Kenya, personal communication).Journal names are abbreviated according to Chemical Abstracts. Authors are fully responsible for the accuracy of the references.

Short Communications

Short Communications are limited to a maximum of one table and two figures. They should present a complete study that is more limited in scope than is found in full-length papers. The items of manuscript preparation listed above apply to Short Communications with the following differences:

1) Abstract should be limited to 100 words.

2) instead of a separate Materials and Methods section, experimental procedures may be incorporated into Figure Legends and Table footnotes.

3) Results and Discussion should be combined into a single section.

 

Proofs and Reprints: Electronic proofs will be sent as an e-mail attachment to the corresponding author as a PDF file. With the exception of typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the manuscript. Because the JPVB will be published freely online to attract a wide audience), authors will have free electronic access to the full text (in PDF) of the article and they can freely download the PDF file from which they can print unlimited copies of their articles.

 

Copyright: Submission of a manuscript implies; that the work described has NOT been published before (except in the form of a thesis or an abstract or as part of a published lecture) that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that if and when the manuscript is accepted for publication, the authors agree to automatic transfer of the copyright to the publisher.

 

Fees and Charges: There are no submission charges. Authors are required to pay a $100 handling fee for the processing of their articles. Authors are required to make payment only after their manuscripts have been accepted for publication.

Waiver in Special Circumstances: Please send your application for waiver to: submit@gsj-pub.com cc to: submit.gsj@gmail.com. Request for a waiver must be submitted with a clear reason in same day a manuscript is submitted.
