GUIDELINES FOR AUTHOR
The ASIAN JOURNAL OF PHARMACUITICAL EDUCATION AND RESEARCH (AJPER) is a quarterly published online Journal, which publishes innovative research papers, reviews, mini-reviews, short communications and notes dealing with Pharmaceutical Sciences (Pharmaceutical Technology, Pharmaceutics, Biopharmaceutics, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmaceutical/Medicinal Chemistry, Computational Chemistry and Molecular Drug Design, Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry, Pharmacology, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Pharmacy Practice, Clinical and Hospital Pharmacy, Cell Biology, Genomics and Proteomics, Pharmacogenomics, Bioinformatics and Biotechnology of Pharmaceutical Interest). All manuscripts are subject to rapid peer review. Those of high quality (not previously published and not under consideration for publication in another journal) will be published without delay.
Asian Journal of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (AJPER)publishes the following
RESEARCH ARTICLE FORMAT:
The preferred format of all manuscript is MS Word. Illustrations (figures) and images must be inserted in the manuscript at the position they should appear when published.
Preparation of Manuscript
TMode of Presenting Paper is English. Each manuscript should be typed single-spaced on A4 (8.5" × 11") paper size with 1 inch margins. It should be arranged in the following order: Title, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgement and References.
Title page should contain title of the paper in bold face, title case (font size 14), names of the authors in normal face, upper case (font size 12) followed by the address in normal face lower case. The author to whom all correspondence be addressed should be denoted by an asterisk mark. The title should be as short as possible and precisely indicate the nature of the work in the communication. Names of the authors should appear as initials followed by surnames. At the bottom left corner of the title page, please mention “*Address For correspondence” and provide a functional e-mail address. Address of the corresponding author to whom all correspondence may be sent should be given only if it is different from the address already given under authors' names.
Should start on a new page after the title page and should be typed in single-space to distinguish it from the Introduction. Abstracts should briefly reflect all aspects of the study, as most databases list mainly abstracts.
Provide four to six appropriate key words after abstract.
A short introduction of the research problem followed by a brief review of literature and objective of the research.
Materials and Methods
Describe the materials used in the experiment, year of experimentation, site etc. Describe the methods implied for collection of data in short.
Results and Discussion
This segment should focus on the fulfilment of stated objectives as given in the introduction. It should contain the findings presented in the form of tables, figures and photographs.
Should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text (not in alphabetic order). Identify references in text, tables and legends by Arabic numerals in superscript. References cited only in tables or figure legends should be numbered in accordance with the sequence established by the first identification in the text of the particular table or figure.

All the tables and figures should be in the text at suitable place. Only MS word table format
should be used for preparing tables. Tables should show lines separating rows but not those
separating columns. Tables should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and bear a

one A4 sized page. Table format should be as follow:
SN Chemical Constituent Aqueous Extract Ethanolic Extract
Abbreviations, Units Etc
The journal strictly follows the rules defined in the IUPAC Manual of symbols and terminology for physicochemical quantities and units.
The journal publishes exciting findings, preliminary data or studies that did not yield enough information to make a full paper as short communications. These have the same format requirements as full papers but are only up to 10 pages in length in total. Short Communications should not have subtitles such as Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussionall these have to be merged into the running text. Short Communications preferably should have only 3-4 illustrations.
Should be about 15-30 pages long, contain up-to-date information, comprehensively cover relevant literature and preferably be written by scientists who have in-depth knowledge on the topic. All format requirements are same as those applicable to full papers.
SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPT
All manuscripts (must be in English and in MS Word format) and should be submitted via our online system or through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment for quick evaluation.
