INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
NHR seeks to publish those papers that are most influential in their fields or across fields and that will significantly advance scientific understanding. Selected papers should present novel and broadly important data, syntheses, or concepts. They should merit the recognition by the scientific community and general public provided by publication in NHR, beyond that provided by specialty journals.
Types of Manuscripts to be sent –
- Research based original articles
- Philosophical or/and concept based article/write-up of high academic content
- Evidence based case reports
- Book Reviews (to be sent along with the original book)
- News and Current events
- Vox populi – Letter to Editor
Research Articles (including references, notes and captions) are expected to present a major advance. Research Articles include an abstract, an introduction, up to six figures or tables, sections with brief subheadings, and about 40 references. Each article must be accompanied by with an abstract preferably not exceeding 150 words. Materials and Methods should usually be included in supplementary materials, which should also include information needed to support the paper’s conclusions.
Reports (including references, notes and captions) present important new research results of broad significance. Reports should include an abstract, an introductory paragraph, up to four figures or tables, and about 30 references. Materials and Methods should usually be included in supplementary materials, which should also include information needed to support the paper’s conclusions.
Perspectives (up to 1000 words plus 1 figure) highlight recent exciting research, but do not primarily discuss the author’s own work. They may provide context for the findings within a field or explain potential interdisciplinary significance. Perspectives commenting on papers in NHR should add a dimension to the research and not merely be a summary of the experiments done in the paper. As these are meant to express a personal viewpoint, with rare exceptions, Perspectives should have no more than two authors
Books et al. (up to 1000 words) presents reviews of current books, multimedia, exhibitions, and films of interest to Science readers.
Authors are expected to adhere to the highest ethical standards. In addition to standard research papers, we seek Reviews that offer timely synthesis and we encourage Practitioner’s Perspective articles that provide a platform for individuals involved in hands-on management of clinical cases to present their personal experiences on the direction of clinical research.
We accept full scale research papers, book reviews, reproduction of special lectures, and letters to the editor, short communications, proceedings and papers. Manuscripts are accepted with the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere. If a paper had been prepared for presentation in a meeting or as a project work or as a survey under an organization, due acknowledgement should be made and permission from authorities should be obtained for publication.
References to literature should be numbered consecutively and arranged according to the surname of the authors. Accuracy and completeness of the literature citations should be ensured. Manuscripts should be sent in the form of soft copy (preferably MS Word) and hard copy. Books, monographs and other publications are reviewed according to their merit and space at disposal.
