MANUSCRIPT SECTIONS FOR PAPERS: Manuscripts
for research articles and letters submitted to the journal
should be divided into the following sections; however,
there can be an extension in the number of sections in review
articles in accordance with the requirements of the topic.
List of abbreviations (if any)
Conflict of interest (if any)
Acknowledgements (if any)
Figures/illustrations (if any)
Chemical structures (if any)
Tables and captions (if any)
Supportive/supplementary material (if any)
COVERING LETTER: It is a mandatory requirement
that a signed covering letter also be submitted along with
the manuscript by the author to whom correspondence is to
be addressed, delineating the scope of the submitted article
declaring the potential competing interests, acknowledging
contributions from authors and funding agencies, and certifying
that the paper is prepared according to the 'Instructions
for Authors'. All inconsistencies in the text
and in the reference section, and any typographical errors
must be carefully checked and corrected before the submission
of the manuscript. The article contains no such material
or information that may be unlawful, defamatory, fabricated,
plagiarized, or which would, if published, in any way whatsoever,
violate the terms and conditions as laid down in the agreement.
The authors acknowledge that the publishers have the legal
right to take appropriate action against the authors for
any such violation of the terms and conditions as laid down
in the agreement. Download
the Covering letter
TITLE: The title should be precise and
brief and must not be more than 120 characters. Authors
should avoid the use of non standard abbreviations. The
title must be written in title case except for articles,
conjunctions and prepositions.
Authors should also provide a short ‘running title’.
ABSTRACT: The abstract should not exceed
250 words for review and research papers and should be limited
to only 150 words for letters, summarizing the essential
features of the article. The use of abbreviations should
be reduced to a minimum and the references should not be
cited in the abstract.
TEXT ORGANIZATION: The main text should
begin on a separate page and should be divided into separate
sections. For Research articles, the preparation of the
main text must be structured into separate sections as Introduction,
Materials and Methodology, Results, Discussion, Conclusion
and Trial Registration. For Review and Letter articles,
the manuscript should be divided into title page, abstract
and the main text. The text may be subdivided further according
to the areas to be discussed, which should be followed by
the Acknowledgement (if any) and Reference sections. The
review article should mention any previous important reviews
in the field and contain a comprehensive discussion starting
with the general background of the field. It should then
go on to discuss the salient features of recent developments.
The authors should avoid presenting material which has already
been published in a previous review. Trial Registration.
If your research article reports the results of a controlled
health care intervention, list your trial registry, along
with the unique identifying number, e.g. Trial registration:
Current Controlled Trials ISRCTN73824458. Note that there
should be no space between the letters and numbers of your
trial registration number. For this purpose, a clinical
trial is any study that prospectively assigns human subjects
to intervention or comparison groups to evaluate the cause-and-effect
relationship between a medical intervention and a health
outcome. All clinical trials, regardless of when they were
completed, and secondary analyses of original clinical trials
must be registered before submission of a manuscript based
on the trial. Studies designed for other purposes, such
as to study pharmacokinetics or major toxicity (e.g., phase
1 trials), are exempt. Trial registry name, registration
identification number, and the URL for the registry should
be included at the end of abstract and also in the space
provided on the online manuscript submission form. If your
research article reports the results of a controlled health
care intervention, list your trial registry, along with
the unique identifying number. Note that there should be
no space between the letters and numbers of your trial registration
Authors will submit the Trial Protocols
along with their manuscript. The CONSORT (Consolidated
Standards of Reporting Trials) Checklist
and Flowchart is also required when submitting
the results of randomized control trials (RCTs).
Authentication of Cell Lines:
The NIH acknowledges the misidentification and/or cross-contamination
of cell cultures e.g. HeLa cells being used in a research
study as a serious problem. In order to ensure that validation
of the work and proper utilization of resources. It is a
prerequisite that correct reagents be used in studies dealing
with established human (tumor) cell lines that have been
cultured for more than 4 years up to the date of submission
of the manuscript. Cell lines such as short-term cultures
of human tumors, murine cell lines (as a catalog of DNA
profiles is not yet available) and tumor cell lines established
in the course of the study that is being submitted, are
presently exempt from this rule. To minimize the risk of
working with misidentified and/or contaminated cell lines,
tests such as isoenzyme analysis, karyotyping/cytogenetic
analysis and, more recently, molecular techniques of DNA
profiling may be carried out to authenticate cell cultures.
These tests may help confirm or establish the identify profile
for a cell line. Bentham Science recommends that all cell
lines be authenticated prior to submitting a paper for review.
Authors are therefore required to provide authentication
of the origin and identity of the cells by performing cell
profiling either in their own laboratory or by outsourcing
an approved laboratory or cell bank. Authentication is required
when a new line is established or acquired, before freezing
a cell line, if the performance of the line is not consistent
or results are unexpected, if using more than one cell line,
and before publication of the study.
The cell lines profile should be cross-checked with the
profile of the donor tissue of other continuous cell lines
such as provided by the authentic data bank such as http://www.dsmz.de/fp/cgi-bin/str.html,
Standard Protocol on Approvals, Registrations,
Patient Consents & Animal Protection:
All clinical investigations must be conducted according
to the Declaration of Helsinki principles. Authors must
comply with the guidelines of the International Committee
of Medical Journal Editors (http://www.icmje.org)
with regard to the patient’s consent for research
or participation in a study. Patients' names, initials,
or hospital numbers must not be mentioned anywhere in the
manuscript (including figures). Editors may request that
authors provide documentation of the formal review and recommendation
from the institutional review board or ethics committee
responsible for oversight of the study.
In addition to the standard patient consent for participation
in research, authors are responsible for obtaining patient
consent-to-disclose forms for all recognizable patients
in photographs, videos, or other information that may be
published in the Journal, in derivative works, or on the
journal’s web site and providing the manuscript to
the recognizable patient for review before submission. The
consent-to-disclose form should indicate specific use (publication
in the medical literature in print and online, with the
understanding that patients and the public will have access)
of the patient's information and any images in figures or
videos, and must contain the patient's signature or that
of a legal guardian along with a statement that the patient
or legal guardian has been offered the opportunity to review
the identifying materials and the accompanying manuscript.
For research involving animals, the authors should indicate
whether the procedures followed were in accordance with
the standards set forth in the eighth edition of Guide for
the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/olaw/guide-for-the-care-and-use-of-laboratory-animals_prepub.pdf)
; published by the National Academy of Sciences, The National
Academies Press, Washington, D.C.).
A specific declaration of such approval and consent-to-disclose
form must be made in the cover letter and in a stand-alone
paragraph at the end of the Methods section especially in
the case of human studies where inclusion of a statement
regarding obtaining the written informed consent from each
subject or subject's guardian is a must. The original should
be retained by the guarantor or corresponding author. Editors
may request to provide the original forms by fax or email.
Greek Symbols and Special Characters: Greek
symbols and special characters often undergo formatting
changes and get corrupted or lost during preparation of
manuscript for publication. To ensure that all special characters
used are embedded in the text, these special characters
should be inserted as a symbol but should not be a result
of any format styling (Symbol font face) otherwise they
will be lost during conversion to PDF/XML2.
Authors are encouraged to consult reporting
guidelines. These guidelines provide a set of recommendations
comprising a list of items relevant to their specific research
design. Chemical equations, chemical names, mathematical usage,
unit of measurements, chemical and physical quantity &
units must conform to SI and Chemical Abstracts or IUPAC.
LIST OF ABBREVIATIONS: If abbreviations are
used in the text either they should be defined in the text
where first used, or a list of abbreviations can be provided.
CONFLICT OF INTEREST: Financial contributions
to the work being reported should be clearly acknowledged,
as should any potential conflict of interest.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: Please acknowledge anyone
(individual/company/institution) who has contributed to the
study by making substantial contributions to conception, design,
acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data,
or who was involved in drafting the manuscript or revising
it critically for important intellectual content. Please list

 Citations for articles/material published exclusively online or in open access (free-to-view) , must contain the exact Web addresses (URLs) at the end of the reference(s), except those posted on an author’s Web site unless editorially essential, e.g. ‘Reference: Available from: URL’.
Some important points to remember:
*All references must be complete and accurate.
*If the number of authors exceeds six then et al
will be used after three names (the term “et al.”
should be in italics).
*Online citations should include the date of access.
*Journal abbreviations should follow the Index Medicus/MEDLINE.
*Take special care of the punctuation convention as described
in the above-mentioned examples.
*Avoid using superscript in the in-text citations and reference
*Abstracts, unpublished data and personal communications (which
can only be included if prior permission has been obtained)
should not be given in the reference section but they may
be mentioned in the text and details provided as footnotes.
*The authors are encouraged to use a recent version of EndNote
(version 5 and above) or Reference Manager (version 10) when
formatting their reference list, as this allows references
to be automatically extracted.
APPENDICES: In case there is a need to present
lengthy, but essential methodological details, use appendices,
which can be a part of the article. An appendix must not exceed
three pages (Times New Roman, 12 point fonts, 900 max. words
per page).The information should be provided in a condensed
form, ruling out the need of full sentences. A single appendix
should be titled APPENDIX, while more than one can be titled
APPENDIX A, APPENDIX B, and so on.
FIGURES/ILLUSTRATIONS: The authors should
provide the illustrations as separate files, as well as embedded
in the text file, numbered consecutively in the order of their
appearance. Each figure should include a single illustration.
No charges will be levied on the use of color figures except
in the reprints. Each figure should be closely cropped to
minimize the amount of white space surrounding the illustration.
If a figure consists of separate parts, it is important that
a single composite illustration file be submitted, containing
all parts of the | figure.
Photographs should be provided with a scale bar if appropriate,
as well as high-resolution component files.
For Line Art image type, which is generally an image based
on lines and text and does not contain tonal or shaded areas,
the preferred file format is TIFF or EPS, with colour mode
being Monochrome 1-bit or RGB, in a resolution of 900-1200
For Halftone image type, which is generally a continuous tone photograph and contains no text, the preferred file format is TIFF, with colour mode being or RGB or Grayscale, with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.
For Combination image type, which is generally an image
containing halftone in addition to text or line art elements,
the preferred file format is TIFF, with colour mode being
or RGB or Grayscale, in a resolution of 500-900 dpi.
For illustrations, the following file formats are acceptable:
• EPS (preferred format for diagrams)
• PDF (also especially suitable for
• PNG (preferred format for photos
• Microsoft Word (version 5 and above;
figures must be a single page)
• PowerPoint (figures must be a single
• JPEG (conversion should be done
using the original file)
• CDX (ChemDraw)
• TGF (ISIS/Draw)
Bentham OPEN does not process figures
submitted in GIF format.
If the large size of TIFF or EPS figures acts as an obstacle
to online submission, authors may find that conversion to
JPEG format before submission results in significantly reduced
file size and upload time, while retaining acceptable quality.
JPEG is a 'lossy' format, however. In order to maintain
acceptable image quality, it is recommended that JPEG files
are saved at High or Maximum quality.
Files should not be compressed with tools such as Zipit
or Stuffit prior to submission as these tools will in any
case produce negligible file-size savings for JPEGs and
TIFFs, which are already compressed.
Please do not:
1. Supply embedded graphics in your word processor (spreadsheet,
2. Supply files that are optimized for screen use (like
GIF, BMP, PICT, WPG); the resolution is too low;
3. Supply files that are too low in resolution;
4. Submit graphics that are disproportionately large for
Image Conversion Tools:
There are many software packages, many of them freeware
or shareware, capable of converting to and from different
graphics formats, including PNG.
Good general tools for image conversion include GraphicConverter
on the Macintosh, PaintShop Pro, for Windows, and ImageMagick,
which is available on Macintosh, Windows and UNIX platforms.
Note that bitmap images (e.g. screenshots) should not be
converted to EPS, since this will result in a much larger
file size than the equivalent JPEG, TIFF, PNG or BMP, with
no increase in the quality. EPS should only be used for
images produced by vector-drawing applications such as Adobe
Illustrator or CorelDraw. Most vector-drawing applications
can be saved in, or exported as, EPS format. In case the
images have beenoriginally prepared in an Office application,
such as Word or PowerPoint, then the original Office files
should be directly uploaded to the site, instead of being
converted to JPEG or another format that may be of low quality.
Chemical Structures: Chemical structures MUST be prepared according to the guidelines below.
Structures should be prepared in ChemDraw and provided as separate file, submitted both on disk and in printed formats.
