Instructions for Authors

Article Processing Charges:

SCIAEON Group is a self-supporting organization and does not receive funding from any institution/government. Hence, the operation of the Journals is solely financed by the handling fees received from Authors and some academic/corporate sponsors. The handling fees are required to meet maintenance of the journals. Being an Open Access Journal, we do not receive payment for submission, as the articles are freely accessible over the internet. For Authors of articles are required to pay a fair handling fee for processing their articles. However, there are no submission charges. For Authors are required to make payment only after their manuscript has been accepted for publication.

Manuscript Types Article Processing Charges (APC)
Research, Review, Case report, etc. £ 450 $ 640
Opinion, Commentary, Short Communication, Image Article £ 350 $ 500
SCIAEON Group Policy Regarding the NIH Mandate

SCIAEON Group will support authors by posting the published version of articles by NIH grant-holders to PubMed Central immediately after publication.

Article Preparation Guidelines

Manuscript title:

The title should be limited to 25 words or less and should not contain abbreviations. The title should be a brief phrase describing the contents of the paper.

Author Information:

Complete names and affiliation of all authors, including contact details of corresponding author (Telephone, Fax and E-mail address).

Abstract:

The abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, briefly present the topic, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and conclusions. The abstract should summarize the manuscript content in 300 words or less. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided. The preferable format should accommodate a description of the study background, methods, results and conclusion. Following the abstract, a list of keywords (3-10) and abbreviations should be included.

Text:

Introduction:

The introduction should set the tone of the paper by providing a clear statement of the study, the relevant literature on the study subject and the proposed approach or solution. The introduction should be general enough to attract a reader's attention from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

Materials and Methods:

This section should provide a complete overview of the design of the study. Detailed descriptions of materials or participants, comparisons, interventions and types of analysis should be mentioned. However, only new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Capitalize trade names and include the manufacturer's name and address.

Results:

The results section should provide complete details of the experiment that are required to support the conclusion of the study. The results should be written in the past tense when describing findings in the author's experiments. Previously published findings should be written in the present tense. Results and discussion may be combined or in a separate section. Speculation and detailed interpretation of data should not be included in the results but should be put into the discussion section.

Acknowledgement:

This section includes acknowledgment of people, grant details, funds, etc.

Note:

SCIAEON group uses the numbered citation (citation-sequence) method. References are listed and numbered in the order that they appear in the text. In the text, citations should be indicated by the reference number in brackets. Multiple citations within a single set of brackets should be separated by commas. When there are three or more sequential citations, they should be given as a range. Example: "... now enable biologists to simultaneously monitor the expression of thousands of genes in a single experiment [1,5-7,28]". Make sure the parts of the manuscript are in the correct order for the relevant journal before ordering the citations. Figure captions and tables should be at the end of the manuscript.

References:

Authors are requested to provide at least one online link for each reference as following (preferably PubMed).

Because all references will be linked electronically as much as possible to the papers they cite, proper formatting of the references is crucial. Please use the following style for the reference list:

If an author fails to submit his/her work as per the above instructions, they are pleased to maintain clear titles namely headings.

  • Please list the first five For Authors and then add "et al." if there are additional authors.

Conferences:

  • 1. Hofmann T (1999) The Cluster-Abstraction Model: unsupervised learning of topic hierarchies from text data. Proceedings of the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence.
Tables:

These should be used at a minimum and designed as simple as possible. We strongly encourage authors to submit tables as .doc format. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. Preferably, the details of the methods used in the experiments should be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph form or repeated in the text. Cells can be copied from an Excel spreadsheet and pasted into a word document, but Excel files should not be embedded as objects.

Note:

If the submission is in PDF format, the author is requested to retain the same in .doc format in order to aid in completion of process successfully.

Figures:

The preferred file formats for photographic images are .doc, TIFF and JPEG. If you have created images with separate components on different layers, please send us the Photoshop files.


All images must be at or above intended display size, with the following image resolutions: Line Art 800 dpi, Combination (Line Art + Halftone) 600 dpi, Halftone 300 dpi. See the Image quality specifications chart for details. Image files also must be cropped as close to the actual image as possible.


Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.

Figure legends:

These should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet

Tables and Equations as Graphics:

If equations cannot be encoded in MathML, submit them in TIFF or EPS format as discrete files (i.e., a file containing only the data for one equation). Only when tables cannot be encoded as XML/SGML they can be submitted as graphics. If this method is used, it is critical that the font size in all equations and tables is consistent and legible throughout all submissions.

  • Suggested Equation Extraction Method
  • Table Specifications
  • Equation Specifications

Supplementary Information:

Discrete items of the Supplementary Information (for example, figures, tables) referred to at an appropriate point in the main text of the paper.

All Supplementary Information is supplied as a single PDF file, where possible. File size within the permitted limits for Supplementary Information.
