INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS 
GENERAL

VIJNANA GANGA is a multidisciplinary peer reviewed Science research journal. Research and review papers of general significance that are written clearly and well organized will only be considered. All papers will be first assessed by the Editorial board. Manuscripts found unsuitable in terms of overall requirements of the journal will be discouraged. The others will be sent for review. Authors of these manuscripts will be notified of their acceptance or need for revision or rejection of the manuscript. It may be noted that manuscripts once rejected cannot be resubmitted. Illustrations and other materials reproduced from other publications must be properly credited. It is the authors’ responsibility to obtain permission for reproduction of figures, tables, etc from published sources.
All manuscripts should be addressed to the Editor, VIJNANA GANGA, Department of Biochemistry, Gulbarga University, Kalaburagi 585 106. Submission of an article implies that it has not been previously published and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts of all categories are to be submitted in hard copy giving (i) names and complete addresses (including telephone numbers, e-mail id. etc) of all the authors and (ii) title of the contribution. Authors may submit their manuscripts online to email: vijnanaganga@gug.ac.in along with hardcopies to the editor. 

CATEGORIES OF MANUSCRIPTS

Review articles (not exceeding 4000 words, cited references to be limited to about 50 in number) are expected to survey and discuss current developments in a field. They should be well focused, organized and avoid the general ‘textbook’ style.
Research articles (not exceeding 3000 words) report research results of major significance. They should include an abstract, an introductory paragraph and remaining part in brief subheads.

Research communications (not exceeding 1500 words) contain important new findings that are novel and fairly of broad interest. They should include a brief abstract and an introductory paragraph.

MANUSCRIPT PREPARATION

Manuscript should be typed in double line spacing (12 fonts, Times New Roman). The pages should be numbered consecutively starting with the title page and through the text, reference list, tables and figure. The manuscript should be ordered as follows: Title page, abstract, keywords, text (including figures and tables), acknowledgements and references. The title page should contain Title, Authors, Affiliations and Corresponding author and address. The title should be of brief, specific and amenable to indexing.  Not more than five keywords should be indicated separately. Abstract should be limited to 100 words conveying the main results and their significance.
Text: All manuscripts should have brief introduction. The text should be intelligible to readers in different disciplines. Tables and figures should be referred to in numerical order. All symbols and abbreviations must be defined and used only when necessary. Units of measures should be in SI.
Figures: Line drawings should be roughly twice the final printed size. Photomicrographs and other photographs must have a scale bar, which should be defined clearly in the legend. Primary data should be submitted as far as possible. Axis lables and the numbers on the scale bars should be sufficiently large enough to be legible.
References should be numbered in superscript serially in the order in which they appear. References should not include unpublished source materials. The list of references at the end of text should be in the following format.
