Guide for Authors

Guide for Authors

Journal of Medical and Life Science (JMALS) will take action where misconduct is suspected, along the lines of the general principles outlined in Guidelines on Good Publication Practice, produced by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Authors are required to meet the criteria for authorship as recommended by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE).

The specific contributions of each author must be described in an Author Contribution statement. 

Requests to add or remove an author, or to rearrange the author names, must be sent to the Editorial Office and must include: (a) the reason the name should be added or removed, or the author names rearranged and (b) written confirmation (e-mail, letter) from all authors that they agree with the addition, removal, or rearrangement. In the case of the addition or removal of authors, this includes confirmation from the author being added or removed. Any requests to add, delete, or rearrange author names in an already published article will follow the same policies as noted above and result in a corrigendum.

  1. The submission of a paper implies the author’s assurance that the paper has not been published and that it has not been submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere.
  2. All authors must declare they have read and agreed to the content of the submitted article and are responsible for the validity and originality of data contained therein.
  3. The submission should include the email and regular address of the corresponding author and all co-authors. Electronic submissions should be sent to the Editor-in-Chief as an MS Word file.
  4. Authors are required to declare any competing financial or other interest concerning their work. All competing interests that are declared will be listed at the end of published articles.

Style for Manuscript

All papers must be written in clear, concise, and should follow the format. The original typescript should be submitted electronically in 8.5-inch × 11-inch format. The text of the paper should include:

Title and author/s, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgments (if any), references, tables, and figures. All papers must be written in UK English. If English is not your first language, please ask an English-speaking colleague to proofread your paper.

Title and authors

The title should describe the contents fully and shall be as short as possible without the use of abbreviations. Please include full name(s) (do not use initials), position, department, name of institution, full postal address, and email address for each author. The author to whom the correspondence is to be sent should be indicated.


An abstract of no more than 250 words describing the content and results of the paper should precede the text of the paper.


No more than 6 keywords for your manuscript are listed after the abstract.


The introduction must be clear and concise. It should provide a clear statement of the problem and should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

Materials and methods

Materials and methods must include study design, methods adopted/used along with references, and statistical information. It must be enough to allow experiments to be reproduced. Any previously published research work can also be cited and notification should be mentioned clearly.


Results of research articles or manuscripts should be presented with clarity. This should describe the design of the experiment and the obtained results. All tables, figures, graphs, statistical analyses, and sample calculations should be presented in this section.


The discussion part of the research paper includes the significance of the results related to the study, comparative analysis with similar or related works along proper citation. Avoid stating too many citations and ensure to include recent references.


This section should be thanks to people, the granting body, university departments, and college departments, and should be in a brief manner.
