  A full paper must be subdivided into sections e.g. Abstract, Introduction, Experimental Procedure, Results, Discussion and Conclusion. The research papers including tables and figures should be limited to 20 pages At list it should contain twenty references.

 3. Manuscript Organization

The text should be written in English, clearly typed (font size 10 points Times new Roman) on one side of A4 paper and single-spaced throughout with at least 2.5 cm margins. All the pages should be consecutively numbered.

The image resolutions should not be less than 300 dpi. Please avoid any shading . Don't embed pictures in the text. Each graph should separately be prepared in Microsoft word or Microsoft Excel program.
4-5.Equations: Number equations consecutively with equation numbers in parentheses flush with the right margin, as in Eq. (1).

(1)" or "Equation (1)" except at the beginning of a sentence.
