Authors' Guidelines

Submit Manuscript as an email attachment to ijfsa@hillpublisher.com. Papers also can be submitted through the online submission system. Manuscripts should be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript. Submissions by anyone other than one of authors will not be accepted.

Manuscript Preparation
Manuscript organization:

You could download the MS Word Template.
1. All manuscripts are expected to be prepared as a single PDF or MS Word document with the complete text, references, tables and figures included. Any revised manuscripts prepared for publication should be sent as a single editable Word document.

2. Manuscripts should be written in English. Title, author(s), and affiliations should all be included on a title page as the first page of the manuscript file, followed by a 100-300 word abstract and 3-5 keywords. The order they follow is: Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords.

Main Text
The main text should include Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion.  The Introduction should be succinct, clearly stating the purpose and rationale of the study. In Materials and Methods, the procedures should be described in sufficient detail to allow duplication by an independent observer. Results and Discussion may be combined or divided. They should be written concisely and logically with emphasis on novel findings.

Figure and table requirement:
All figures or photographs must be submitted as jpg or tif files with distinct characters and symbols at 500 dpi (dots per inch). Test your figures by printing them from a personal computer. The online version should look relatively similar to the personal-printer copy. Tables and equations should be in an editable rather than image version. Tables must be edited with Word/Excel. Equations must be edited with Equation Editor. Figures, tables and equations should be numbered and cited as Figure 1, Figure 2, Figure 3, etc. in sequence.

How to count page numbers:
Before submission or after acceptance, type your manuscript single spaced, and make all the characters in the text, tables, figure legends, footnotes and references in a single typeface and point size as 10 pt Times New Roman. This will save space, make it easier for reviewers and editors to process the submitted work, and contributes to slowing down global warming by using less paper.

References format:
All references should be numbered in square brackets in the text and listed in the REFERENCES section in the order they appear in the text. Below are some examples:
