Journal of Biospectracal (J Biospectra) is peer reviewed, Monthly (Onward April 2016) open access multidisciplinary journal. Journal of Biospectracal publishes original research work that contributes significantly to further the scientific knowledge in Life sciences (Nanotechnology, Pharmaceutical Technology, Pharmacognosy, Natural Product Research, Pharmaceutics, Novel Drug Delivery, Environmental and agricultural science, Biopharmaceutics, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmaceutical/Medicinal Chemistry, Computational Chemistry and Molecular Drug Design, Pharmacology, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Pharmacy Practice, Clinical and Hospital Pharmacy, Cell Biology, Genomics and Proteomics, Pharmacogenomics, Bioinformatics, Biochemistry, Pharmacoeconomics). Research outcomes from medical science and biotechnology of pharmaceutical interest are also considered. IJPPS publishes original research work either as an Original Article or as a Short Communication. Review articles on current topic under mentioned scopes are also considered for publication

All the tables and figures should be in the text at suitable place. Submission of a manuscript to Journal of Biospectracal (J Biospectra) for publication implies that the same work has not been either published or under consideration for publication in another Journal. Authors, in their cover note to the Editor, have to clearly mention whether the manuscript shall be considered as a Research Paper, Short Communication or Review Article and also confirm that the manuscript has not been submitted to any other Journal for publication. Authors publishing results from in vivo experiments involving animals or humans should state whether due permission for conduction of these experiments was obtained, from the relevant ethics committees, in the Materials and Methods section. In addition, authors wishing to publish research work involving human studies should also send a notary verified letter of approval from the Ethics Committee or the Institutional Review Board.


It should summarize the rationale, provides a concise research background (not an exhaustive review) and states in single sentence the objective of the study. Please do not include any results or the conclusion of the study.


All the ethical permission associated in the research work must be specified. It should provide technical information about the study. Published methodological details are not needed to describe that have been published previously. Specifications (including the manufacturer, city and the country) should be given for the main drugs, chemicals, and instruments. Indicate the statistical methods used and identify statistical significance using superscripts (* and **) following the data (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.01).


It should reveal the findings of works. It should be with the interpretation of the results and their comparison with those of other studies. No need to repeat the results, review literature, textbook knowledge or cite references that do not have a close relationship with the present result.

Abbreviations-At the first appearance in the abstract and the text, abbreviations should be preceded by words for which they stand.

Tables- Tables must be concise and cited consecutively using Arabic numerals in the text (Table 1, Table 2...etc.). The title of the table should clearly indicate the nature of the contents and sufficient detail should be included in the footnote to facilitate interpretation without reference to the text. Use horizontal rules only. Table Format – It should be designed using table tools of MS Word and exactly same as below.

Table 1:

Figures -Figures (photographs, drawings, diagrams and charts) should be clear, easily legible and cited consecutively using Arabic numerals in the text(fig. 1, fig. 2...etc.). Please supply figures 1.5 to 2 times the size at which they will be finally reproduced. For line work, submit black-ink drawings of professional quality. Micrographs or other glossy photographs must be of the highest quality. Use standard symbols: ○, ●, ×, □, ■, △, ▲. Freehand or typewritten lettering is unacceptable. If a figure comprises more than one glossy photograph, these should be marked A, B, C...etc. Figure legends should be marked clearly with their correspond letters. Legends should contain sufficient detail to permit figure interpretation without reference to the text. Scale markers should be indicated in the photographs. Color plates are also welcome. The choice of cover art illustration will be made by the Editor.

Manuscripts that fail to conform to the requirements of the Journal, as specified under 'Instructions to Authors', will be rejected outright.
Tables and figures should be cited in the text in numerical order. Table 2 should not be first cited before Table 1.


References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text (not in alphabetic order). Identify references in text, tables, and legends by Arabic numerals in parenthesis/bracket and superscript like ¹ References cited only in tables or figure legends should be numbered in accordance with the sequence established by the first identification in the text of the particular table or figure. Use the style of the examples below. Use complete name of the journal for non-indexed journals. Avoid using abstracts as references. Information from manuscripts submitted but not accepted should be cited in the text as “unpublished observations” with written permission from the source. Avoid citing a “personal communication” unless it provides essential information not available from a public source, in which case the name of the person and date of communication should be cited in parentheses in the text. For scientific articles, contributors should obtain written permission and confirmation of accuracy from the source of a personal communication.

Short Communication

The journal publishes exciting findings, preliminary data or studies that did not yield enough information to make a full paper as short communications. These have the same format requirements as full papers but are only up to 5 pages in length. Short Communications should not have subtitles such as Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion - all these have to be merged into the running text. Short Communications preferably should have only 3-4 illustrations.
