The Society for the Promotion of Plant Science Research invites review papers, full papers and short communications for publication in its official publication The Journal of Plant Science Research. Submitted papers will be accepted only if found suitable by the referee. Books may be submitted for publication of their critical reviews. The contributions should be submitted through proper channel. It is presumed that the papers simultaneously submitted have not been previously and will not be simultaneously submitted and published in any other journal. All the authors of a paper must be members of the society. Membership fee @ Rs. 400/ per member should be sent at the time of submission of the paper. On receipt of the paper an acknowledgement giving registration number of the paper will be sent to the corresponding author. This number should always be quoted.
Review paper should not mention headings such as Material and Methods and Results and Discussion. The review papers should critically summarize the existing state of knowledge pointing out gaps in research and suggest possible line of future research. Review papers are generally invited but good reviews are considered for publication. Full paper should be based on original research reporting some new findings.
Manuscripts of full paper should be prepared under the following headings: Title, Abstract (without heading), Key
Words (not more than 5), Introduction . Material and Methods, Results and Discussion and References (all
headings flush left). Short communication should include reports on experiments in progress which author wants to
share with the readers urgently and it should have no headings/subheadings. For format please consult the latest
issue of the journal. First line of the paragraph is not to be indented. The manuscript must be typed double-spaced on
one side of good grade paper. An electronic copy of the paper done in WordPerfect 6.00 or MS Word should be sent
in a CD. Title must be short and specific. The by line should comprise name(s) of the author(s) and complete address of the institute.
Title pages should include a running title of not more than 7 words. Abstract must be self-explanatory and should include the reason(s) for carrying out the investigations objectives, methodology, important observations and a conclusion. Introduction should be brief and limited to the statement of the problem and aim of the experiment. Material and Methods should be clear and concise. Results and Discussions should be written concisely in a logical order. Information given in the tables and figures should not be repeated in the text. All figures and tables should be cited in the text and should be typed on separate sheets with concise captions/legends. Every table should have a self explanatory heading. Discussion should be oriented towards explaining the significance and implication of the results obtained and should be well connected with the previous work in this direction. References should be arranged alphabetically by the name of the first author and then the second and third authors, as necessary. The Latin binomial or binomial nomenclature should be followed and authority must be mentioned for all plant, pathogen or insect names at the first listing. References should be cited in text as Vijayaraghvan & Shukla (1977) or (Vijayaraghvan & Shukla 1977) depending upon the structure of the sentence. Indicate more than two authors as Truernit et al (1999) or (Truernit et al 1999), as the case be. If there is more than one publication by the same author(s) in the same year the letter ‘a’ or ‘b’ should be added after the year both in the text and list of references. The World List of Scientific Periodicals should be followed for abbreviations of the title of the journal.
