Submission declaration and verification:

Submission of an article to Current Trends in Biomedical & Life Sciences implies that the work described has not been published previously  that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in any other language, including electronically without the written consent of the copyright-holder.

Open access & Copyright:

This journal publishes open access articles. All articles published Open Access will be immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download.

Submission of papers:

The Journal of Biomedical and Life Sciences invites papers that make a significant contribution to the knowledge in the field of biomedical and life sciences. The following types of papers may be submitted.
(i) Original Papers: 
The original papers being submitted must consist of original research performed by the authors and the research must include new information that is of significance.

(ii) Reviews (up to 12 printed pages): Reviews covering recent discoveries or topics of current interest are generally invited.

Manuscripts must be written in English using Times font and typed in double-line spacing with 3-cm margins; pages should be numbered. Authors whose first language is not English are urged to have their manuscript read by a colleague who is well versed with English language.Manuscripts with extensive English language deficiencies will be returned to the author without the full reviewing process

Please submit a manuscript along with the names, addresses and e-mail addresses ofthree potential referees. The manuscript be uploaded on the journal website. The article submitted, following primary screening by Editorial Board, will be forwarded to Editorial Secretary for further process.

A short running title not exceeding 6-7 words may also be provided.

Abstract (250 words)

All manuscripts should(except reviews) have a structured abstract (of about 250 words) withsubheadings of  Background& objectives, Methods, Results and Interpretation & conclusions. Abstract should be brief and indicate the scope and significant results of the paper. It should only highlight the principal findings and conclusions so that it can be used by abstracting services without modification.

Four to six keywords be provided below the abstract

Introduction:The manuscript should include introduction stating the purpose and objectives of the investigation

Methodology Section: This section should provide details of the study design. Detailed descriptions of materials and methodology adopted be given. However, only new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be in brief and any significant  modifications of published procedures should be mentioned.

Results: Results should be presented concisely.

Discussion: Discussion should interpret the results explaining the significance of the outcome. Results/data  should not be repeated.  A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Discussion should be focused and should avoid discussion of published literature.

Conclusions: The outcome  of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section.
