Both CD and hard copies should be complete, matches one another, and be perfect for an early publication.

The title of papers should explain authors' objectives. Papers should be written in lucid English and must contain relevant information to explain results, and are subdivided as follows: i) Abstract, ii) Key words, iii) Introduction, iv) Material and Method, v) Results, vi) Discussion, vii)Acknowledgement, if any, viii) References. In case of descriptive articles other subdivisions may be permitted.

The number of illustrations and tables should be kept to minimum. Photograph may be minimized to fit one column. If there is more than one photographs in a plate, they should be clear and of same intensity. If necessary, hand-drawing with India ink, on a Bristol board should be made. Appropriate position of tables and figures should be indicated in the hard copies. A current issue of the journal or the World List of the Scientific Periodicals may be consulted for this purpose.

Plant names must conform to the International Code Nomenclature for Algae, Fungi and Plants (ICN) and be in italics. When a name is first cited, the complete scientific name with author citation is desirable. Later, genus initial may be used followed by species name.

Abbreviations should be used sparingly. Standard chemical symbols are accepted. However, when an abbreviation is first used the full term shall be mentioned with the abbreviation within parentheses.

The number of the figures, photographs and the title of the paper should be written on the back of each figure and photograph. In calculating the degree of reduction of the figures, authors should keep in mind the column,-size (7.5 cm) as well the page-size (16.25 cm x 20 cm) of the journal. Tables and figures should be numbered in Arabic and submitted in separate sheets. Tables concerning experiments should have brief legends containing description of the experiments so that data are intelligible to the readers. Legends of figures shall also be submitted in a separate sheet.

Proofs of the articles if sent to the authors the same must be returned to the Editor within seven days of receiving the proof.
