A submission has to be made during the minimum amount of time and preferably during one single visit to the IJPNI website. Authors are required to have Cover letter, Title Page, Abstract, and Main Document including references, figures, tables and charts in separate files. Those files must be created using the latest Microsoft Office program,
. System accepts uploads during each submission, and author is able to check list of files at the end of a submission process.
At submission, authors are asked to nominate at least one
who may then be asked by the Editorial
Board to help review the work. Manuscripts are normally reviewed by two external peer reviewers and a member of the Editorial Board.
Authors are responsible to check their account frequently at least once every three days. Authors receive feedback, recommendation and approval or questions for reviewers directly via system. If a paper requiring revision is not resubmitted within
weeks after a request, it will
be moved from the publication queue and a new set of dates may apply.
IJPNI publishes the following: Research Articles, Review Articles, and Editorials.
Papers submitted for publication must be written in English and should be as concise as possible.
We recommend that authors have their manuscript checked by someone whose first language is English before a submission, this will ensure that submissions are judged at peer review exclusively on academic merit.
Spelling should generally be that of the Concise Oxford Dictionary (1995), 9th ed. Oxford: Clarendon Press.
Arrange references as a simple list at the end of your manuscript based on Vancouver style, all references are listed according to the same order as in-text citation. Therefore, number one in the list is a reference that is the first citation in-text.
Authors are responsible for the accuracy of all cited references and these should be checked before the manuscript is submitted.
Only one publication can be listed for each number.
Cite references in the text, tables, or figures in consecutively numerical order by means of superscript
Arabic numerals. It is acceptable for a reference to be cited only in a table or a figure legend and not in the text if it is in sequence with references cited in text.
Two references are cited with a comma and no space. Three or more consecutive references are cited in a range with dashes.
References in tables, figures, and panels should be in numerical order according to where the item is cited in the text.
Please note that if references are not cited in order the manuscript may be returned for amendment before it is passed on to the Editor for assessment.
Only papers published or in press should be included in the reference list. Personal communications or unpublished data must be cited in parentheses in the text with the name(s) of the source(s) and the year. Authors should request permission from the source to cite unpublished data.
In reference list:
List the surnames and initials of first names of all authors if there are 6 or fewer; otherwise list the first 3 and add ‘et al.’ Use one space only between words up to the year and then no spaces. The journal title should be in italic and abbreviated according to the style of PubMed. If the journal is not listed in PubMed, then it should be written out in full. Check journal abbreviations using PubMed.
