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.
TITLE PAGE: Title page should include paper
title, author(s) full name and affiliation, corresponding
author(s) names complete affiliation/address, along with phone,
fax and email.
Authors should also provide a short ‘running
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
KEYWORDS: Provide 6 to 8 keywords in alphabetical
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.
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,
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
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).
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/XML.
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
the source(s) of funding for the study, for each author, and

 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:
*References must be complete and accurate.
*Online citations should include the date of access.
*Journal titles should conform to the present ACM Guide to
Computing Literature/Chemical Abstracts etc. abbreviations.
*If the number of authors exceeds six then et al.
will be used after three names (the term “et al.”
should be in italics).
*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
• 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 (ISISDraw)
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:
||Supply embedded graphics in your word processor (spreadsheet,
||Supply files that are optimized for screen use (like
GIF, BMP, PICT, WPG); the resolution is too low;
||Supply files that are too low in resolution;
||Submit graphics that are disproportionately large
for the content.
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 Graphic Converter
on the Macintosh, Paint Shop 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 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 been originally 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.
