Regular articles: These should describe new and carefully 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: A Short Communication is suitable for recording the results of complete small investigations or giving details of new models or hypotheses, innovative methods, techniques or apparatus. The style of main sections need not conform to that of full-length papers. Short communications are 2 to 4 printed pages (about 6 to 12 manuscript pages) in length.

Peer Review Process:


The manuscript is assessed by the peer reviewers. After assessing the manuscript the peer reviewers send their reports to the editor. The peer reviewers give a recommendation as to the further course of action. 

The editor decides on the further course of action. The manuscript is:

a) Published unchanged. 

b) Published following minor alterations or minor revision. The authors are requested to produce and submit a final version of the manuscript with the required amendments.

c) Reassessed following major alterations or major revision. 

The authors are requested to produce and submit a version of the manuscript with the required amendments. The manuscript is sent to the peer reviewers for reassessment. The peer review process begins anew. 

d) Rejected Once the editor initiates no further changes, the manuscript is approved for publication.


The final decision generally lies with the editor.


If the manuscript is published, the editor's name is also published with it in acknowledgement of his contribution to the peer review process.
