INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
manuscripts as e-mail attachment to the Editorial
A manuscript number will be mailed to the corresponding
author same day or within 48 hours.
authors may also suggest two to four reviewers for the
manuscript (JBASR may designate other reviewers).
There is no page limit. The submitting author takes
responsibility for the paper during submission and peer
Papers must be submitted on the understanding that
they have not been published elsewhere (except in the form
of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review, or
thesis) and are not currently under consideration by another
journal. The submitting author is responsible for ensuring
that the article's publication has been approved by all the
other coauthors. All enquiries concerning the publication of
accepted papers should be addressed to
Basic and Applied Scientific Research will only accept
manuscripts submitted as e-mail attachments.
manuscripts are reviewed by an editor and members of the
Editorial Board or qualified outside reviewers. Decisions
will be made as rapidly as possible, and the journal strives
to return reviewers’ comments to authors within one or two weeks.
The editorial board will re-review manuscripts that are
accepted pending revision. It is the goal of the JBASR to publish
manuscripts within 4 weeks after submission.
Manuscripts should be written in clear, concise and
grammatically correct English (with 10 font size and Times
New Roman font style) so that they are intelligible to the
professional reader who is not a specialist in any
particular field. Manuscripts that do not conform to these
requirements and the following manuscript format may be
returned to the author prior to review for correction. The
entire manuscript, including references, should be typed
single spaced on one side of the paper. All pages should be
numbered consecutively in the bottom centre starting from
the title page. The manuscript should be presented in the
Title and Authorship Information
The title should be a brief phrase
(capitalize first letter of each word in the title)
describing the contents of the paper. The Title Page should
include the authors' full names and affiliations, the name
of the corresponding author along with phone, fax and E-mail

manuscripts should not exceed 250-300 words and should
describe the scope, hypothesis or rationale for the work and
the main findings. Complete sentences, active verbs, and the abstract should be
written in the past tense. Standard nomenclature should be
used and abbreviations should be avoided. No literature
should be cited.

with indexing of the article. These should not duplicate key
words from the title.
section should include sufficient background information,
provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant
literature on the subject, and the proposed approach or
solution. The aims of the manuscript should be clearly
stated. The introduction should not contain either findings
or conclusions. It should be understandable to colleagues
from a broad range of scientific disciplines.
should be complete enough to provide sufficient detail to
allow the work to be repeated by others. However, only truly
new procedures should be described in detail; previously
published procedures should be cited, and important
modifications of published procedures should be mentioned
briefly. Capitalize trade names and include the
manufacturer's name and address. Subheadings should be used.
Methods in general use need not be described in detail.
Results should be presented in a
logical sequence in the text, tables and figures; repetitive
presentation of the same data in different forms should be
avoided. The results should not contain material appropriate
to the Discussion. It should be written in the past tense
when describing findings in the authors' experiments.
Results should be explained, but largely without referring
to the literature.
discussion should consider the results in relation to any
hypotheses advanced in the Introduction and place the study
in the context of other work. Results and Discussion
sections can be combined.
optional conclusion section is used, its content should not
substantially duplicate the abstract.
grants, funds, etc
