Guidelines for Authors
Author information & Guidelines
Biomedical Research is an interdisciplinary research journal for publication of original scientific work in all major disciplines of basic and clinical medical sciences. Journal of Biomedical Research is an open access journal. Invited and submitted review articles on current topics will also be included. Doctors are encouraged to contribute unique case reports. in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. while making them freely available through online without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to universal researchers.
Manuscripts are received with the understanding that they have not been published or are not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The journal considers manuscripts for publication, prepared in accordance with the Guidelines for the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals.

Please do not submit tables as photographs or scanned documents. They must be provided in word of excel sheets. Number tables consecutively in the order of their first citation in the text and supply a brief title for each. The tables should be typed on separate sheets. Place explanatory details as footnotes. Give each column a short or abbreviated heading.
All figures should be listed together. Figures should not exceed 16.5 x 22.0 cm and should be numbered. For the reproduction of illustrations, only good quality drawings and original photographs can be accepted. When possible, group multiple illustrations on one page for reproduction. Photomicrographs should have internal scale markers. Symbols, arrows, or letters used in the photomicrographs should contrast with the background. Electronically submitted b/w half-tone and color illustrations must have a final resolution of 300 dpi after scaling, and 800-1200 dpi for line drawings.
When possible, quantify findings and present them with appropriate indicators of measurement error or uncertainty (such as confidence intervals). Report any limitations such as dropout from clinical trial. Put a general description of methods in the Methods section. When data are summarized in the results section, specify the statistical methods followed for analysis. Define statistical terms, abbreviations, and most symbols.
Article Processing Charges (APC):
Each printed page (A4) will be charged to authors at US$100. US$250 will be charged for a short paper of 1-3 pages. For each color plate additional US$250 will be charged to the authors. Payment needs to be made after editorial acceptance for publication of the manuscript. In special cases page charge may be reduced.
Unless indicated otherwise, galley proofs will be sent to the first-named author and should be returned within 48 hours of receipt.
Reprints may be purchased. Order for supply of reprints may be sent while returning the galley proofs after corrections. Reprint Order Form and Price List will be sent with the galley proofs.
Generally, submitted manuscripts are sent to two subject expert referees from our panel. The contributor’s may submit names of three qualified and competent reviewers who have had experience in the subject of the submitted manuscript, but are not associated with the same institution(s) as the contributors nor have published manuscripts with the contributors in the recent past.
Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.
Authors should ensure that submitted work is original and has not been published elsewhere in any language, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
Applicable copyright laws and conventions should be followed. Copyright material (e.g. tables, figures or extensive quotations) should be reproduced only with appropriate permission and acknowledgement.
An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.
Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.
When reporting experiments on human subjects, indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional or regional) and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2000 (http://www.wma.net/en/30publications/10policies/b3/). Do not use patients' names, initials, or hospital numbers, especially in illustrative material. When reporting experiments on animals, indicate whether the institutional or a national research council guide for or any national law on the care and use of laboratory animals were followed.
Declaration of originality, authorship and competing interest
By submitting the manuscripts it implies that the manuscript is based on original work and had not been published in whole or part, in any print or electronic media or is under consideration of publication in any print or electronic media other than as abstract of conference proceedings.

Clinical trials, randomized controlled trials, systematic reviews and meta-analysis, case reports, observational studies, genetic studies, diagnostic studies and animal experiments need to follow and reported with the appropriate internationally recognized guidelines.
Research studies involving human subjects, human derived material, biometric and biomedical data of humans, as well as animal experimentation needs to be reviewed and approved by the Institutional ethical committee where the work is carried out and ensured to be performed as per ethical standards endorsed by national, international and Declaration of Helsinki (www.wma.net/). The human subjects participating in the study must supply informed consent of participation with complete understanding of the research. The material and methods section must contain the ethical statement mentioning the relevant information must be included in the manuscript.
