Authors Guidelines
 
Guide for Authors
 
submission of Papers :
 
The preferred mode of submission of papers for publication in the International Journal of 3R’s is electronic. Papers can be submitted in the mail IDs editor3r@pidilite.co.in and info@drfixitinstitute.com. However, authors may submit papers in duplicate hard copies if the electronic submission poses problems.
 
CATEGORIES OF PAPERS :
 
The journal accepts following types of articles: Research Papers, Reviews, Communications, Case studies (all categories having maximum length of 15 manuscript pages), Discussions and Point of View (maximum length of 5 manuscript pages). The manuscript pages include tables and figures. The journal is published in English only. Reprint order forms will be sent to the authors whose papers have been accepted for publication on request.
 
MANUSCRIPT PREPARATION :
 
Manuscripts should be double spaced, with page numbering. Concise writing is required. Use either tabular or graphical presentation of a set of data, not both. All textual elements should begin flush left, with no paragraph indents. Two returns should be placed after every element such as title, headings, paragraphs, and figure legends. The manuscript should conform to the following guidelines:
 
1.The title page should contain the title of the paper, author(s), affiliation(s) with address, and country, and correspondence footnote. Superscript ‘a’ should be used to denote affiliation. The corresponding author should be identified with an asterisk.
 
2.Each paper should be accompanied by an abstract. The abstract should not be more than 150 words.
 
3.Major headings, e.g., Introduction, Methods, Results,etc., should be numbered, as well as any subsidiary headings (1.1, 1.2).
4.Figures and tables can be submitted as separate files. Figures and tables are normally reduced to single-column width (i.e. slightly less than half-page width). For this reason, please keep the blank space around figures and tables to a minimum as this will ensure that the content of figures and tables can be reproduced as large as possible. Use large enough lettering so that the smallest elements (i.e. superscript or subscript characters) will be readable when the figure is reduced.
5.Reference should be indicated in the text by consecutive numbers in brackets, i.e., [1, 2], as part of the text, not raised above it. Full references should be cited in a numbered list at the end of the paper. References should contain the names of all authors of any one paper together with their initials, the article title, the title of the journal, volume number, page numbers, and year. References to books should contain the publisher’s name and address.
6.Use only standard symbols and abbreviations in text and illustrations.
7.Units should be expressed in the International System of Measurement (SI) or metric system.
8.Any numbered equations in text, as well as all tables and figures, must be cited in text, i.e. (Eq.1), (Table 3), (Figure 1), see Eq.(1) etc.
