Preparation of manuscripts

1. Manuscripts should be written in English; spelling and grammar must be checked well. Author may get help using Microsoft Office Tools. Authors whose native language is not English are strongly advised to have their manuscripts checked by an English-speaking colleague prior to submission.

2. Manuscripts should be type written in 10 size Times New Roman font with normal margins (1’’ at top, bottom, left and right) and line spacing of 1.5 throughout including abstract, tables, footnotes and references. Scientific name, and local name which is absent in oxford dictionary should be represented as italics to emphasize it.

3.‘Per’ (/) in text or table to be typed as superscript, e.g.yield/plant must be yield plant-1.

4.‘Per cent’ or ‘percentage’ in the text and table to be corrected as ‘%’.

5.‘et al.’, ‘viz.’ should be presented as normal text, NOT initalics

6.Manuscripts should be organized in the following order:

• Title should be clear, descriptive, not too long typed in bold letter in upper-lower case. Use subjective statement only, e.g. Effect of Salinity on Morphological Characteristics of Seven Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Genotypes Differing in Salt Tolerance.

• Title will be followed by name(s) of author(s) which will be followed by complete addressof affiliation with PIN/ZIP, without designation, superscripted with numerical,e.g. S. K. Verma1*S. K. Prasad1,  S. B. Singh2Y. V. Singh3,  Ravi Prakash Singh4and Shiv Bahadur followed by 1-5 address of affiliation.

• All theseto be arranged  in central alignment(including title) which will be followed by e-mail ID of corresponding authorin left alignment indicated with an asterisk (*), e.g. S. K. Verma1*S. K. Prasad1S. B. Singh2Y. V. Singh3Ravi Prakash Singh4 and Shiv Bahadur*E-mail: sunil@gmail.com

• Present address (es) of author(s), if applicable, should be givenjust below the particular author as below-1,4,5Dept. of Agronomy3Dept. of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Institute of Agricultural Sciences,BHU, Varanasi, U.P. (221 005), India

• as footer only in the first page using symbol ‘#’ as superscript.

• E-mail ID will be followed by Abstract which will be followed by Keywords (indexing terms) maximum up to 8 words in lower case only,

e.g. Keywords:Herbicides, mulching, nutrient content,nutrients uptake, weed, yield (without a full stopat the end); within 8 words

• Abstract should be stated clearly highlighting the objective, method and implication of the study within 250 words.

• Introduction:Enrich

• Materials and MethodsPeriod and year of experiment should be clearly mentioned

• Results and Discussion : should be strengthened,Repetition of results should be avoided. More than 3 Graphs may not be allowed. Please send excel sheet of the graph/ Photos (jpeg/tiff/bmp format) as separateattachment in replied mail

• Conclusion:should be precise, focused to the objective (within 80 words)

• Further Research, if any

• Acknowledgements: including any additional information concerning research grants,etc.

• References:Should strictly follow the journal style

• Tables

• Figure/bardiagram/artwork with caption

In themanuscript, headings and sub-headings should be numbered (up to third orderheadings). All the first order headings should be typed in bold letter in lowercase only with number starting from introduction, e.g. 1. Introduction, 2.Materials and Methods3. Results and Discussion4. Conclusion,5. Further Research6. Acknowledgement, and 7. References.Second, third and fourth order headings, if any, should be typed in italics in lower case only (but not bold) in the following manner:

3. Result sand Discussion

3.1. Average of phenotypic traits

3.1.1.Growth traits weight

• However,authors are suggested to limit level of headings preferably up to second orderas far as possible.

2. Materials and Methods

2.1. Study sites

2.2. Method of data collection

7.IJBSM reserves the right to return manuscriptafter initial revision if found unsuitable for the journal or not in proper format.

8. Formulae

• Subscripts and superscripts should be clear.

• Care must be taken to clearly show the difference between zero (0) and the letter ‘O’,and between one (1) and the letter ‘l’. Elaboration of the meaning of all symbols must be done immediately after the equation in which they are firstused.

• Use the solidus (/) instead of a horizontal line for simple fraction, e.g. 5/14

• Equations should be numbered serially at the right-hand side in parenthesis, e.g. y=mcx.............(1)

• Use root sign (v), and power of ‘e’ must be denoted as ‘exp.’

• Levels of statistical significance should be represented as *p<0.05,**p<0.01 and ***p<0.001.

• In chemical formulae, valence of ions to be presented as Mg2+, not Mg++;Isotope numbering as 3H; phosphate as P2O5.


• Authors are obliged to accept the rules governing biological nomenclature as laid down in the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature, the International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria, and the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature.

• Binomial Latin names are used in accordance with International Rules of Nomenclature.

• All biotica (crops, plants, insects, birds, mammals, etc.) should be identified by their scientific names when the English term is first used with the exception of common domestic animals.

• Biocides and other organic compounds must be identified by their Geneva names when first used in the text. Active ingredients of all formulations should be identified likewise.

• For chemical nomenclature, the conventions of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry and the official recommendations of the IUPAC-IUB Combined Commission on Biochemical Nomenclature must be followed.

10. Tables

• Tables should be of convenient size. However, large tables may be adjusted after changing of layout from portrait to landscape. Reversing columns and rows will often reduce the dimensions of a table.

• If many data are to be presented, an attempt should be made to divide them over two or more tables.

• If results are already given in graphs or diagrams, tables should not be used. Double documentation is not acceptable.

• Tables must be numbered in the run of the text. Text should include references to all tables.

• ALL TABLES SHOULD BE PRESENT IN THE RUN OF THE TEXT, preferably after table number mentioned in bracket with a brief and self-explanatory title.

• Title of table should be left aligned and kept inside the top row within the table in lower case (but not bold) letter only.

• Use the international system of units (SI) as far as possible. If other units are mentioned, please give their equivalent in SI. 

• Column headings should be brief, but sufficiently explanatory with standard abbreviations of units of measurement (e.g. ‘Gram’ as ‘g’, ‘hectare’ as ‘ha’,‘centimeter’ as ‘cm’, meter as ‘m’ etc.) in parenthesis.

• Column headings should be centrally aligned in lower case (but not bold) letter only.Figures/values/data inside the table should be centrally aligned, but descriptive data/information should be ‘justify’ aligned. 

• Figures/values in the column of the table should be uniform regarding the number of digits after decimal point. One can show either one or two digits after decimal point depending on the types of data or values, e.g. (100.0), (0.0), (3.1) or(100.00) (0.00) (3.19)

• Vertical lines should not be used to separate a column.

• Explanation,if any, essential for understanding the table should be given as a foot note inside the bottom last row of the table.

11.Graph/bar diagram/artwork/figure

• All graphs or diagrams should have clarity to represent the values and should be well explained.

• Avoid shading for better quality printing. Lines or bars of black and white will be preferred. If colored, authors need to pay extra charges.


• In case of lack of knowledge or inability to follow the instructions as above, one may request Editor for further help after sending original excel data sheet.

12. Color illustration

Make sure that artwork files are in an acceptable format (TIFF, JPEG, GIF, PSD, PDD, and BMP) files with correct resolution.

13. References

• All publications (except general type) cited in the text should be presented in a list of references at the end of the manuscript. List of references should be arranged alphabetically by authors’ names, and chronologically per author. In case of an author having more than one paper in a same year, it should be stated in following orders, e.g. 1995a, 1995b, and so on.

• In thelist, full title of publication must be given without abbreviation of any form.
