Authors willing to submit their manuscript are requested to carefully go through the guidelines as given below:

Submission of Manuscript

  1. Submission of a manuscript to the SAJEB implies that the research work described has neither been published, nor it is under consideration for publication anywhere else and the manuscript has been approved by all co-authors.
  2. It is the responsibility of author (s) to obtain prior approval of the appropriate authorities of the institute where the work had been carried out. The publisher in no case, whatsoever, will be held legally responsible if there were any claims raised for compensation.
  3. If authors are using any copyrighted material (figure, table or text passages), they must obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for doing that. Authors are fully responsible for the authenticity of the literature and originality of the data. The SAJEB will not be responsible for the plagiarism.
  4. Author (s) will submit an author agreement form in the specified format for copyright transfer and declare about authenticity of the literature and originality of the data. Please click here for author agreement form.
  5. We receive nominal fee from the authors as the manuscript handling charges after acceptance of their manuscript by our reviewer panel. The amount of fee payable is dependent upon several factors including author's affiliation, manuscript length, etc. The usual average charges are INR 4400 for Indian authors and US$340 for authors outside India, per manuscript. However, publication of article in our journal is not contingent upon author's capability to remit the fee. Partial waiver in fee is also granted to the deserving and needy authors. Priority in waiver is accorded to the budding researchers.

  • The manuscript body will consist of [i] Introduction: This section will give brief introduction of the research work while reviewing the latest research related to it. The introduction section should clearly mention the significance and objectives of the research work being reported. [ii] Materials & Methods: This section should be detailed enough so that the other interested researchers could repeat the experiments. In case of common methods used, only citation will be sufficient. However, if any modification in the established method was made, it should be clearly mentioned.
