Author Guideline


The journal publishes peer-reviewed original research papers, review articles, case studies and Survey reports. The journal allows free access to its contents, which is likely to attract more readers and citations to articles published in JRNI. The Journal will accept original and innovative submissions in English on the understanding that the work is unpublished and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. 

JRNI publishes work that contributes significantly to the scientific knowledge in Natural product science and relevant fields. The manuscripts must be single-spaced typed, written in clear, grammatical English with no typographical errors. Webster’s New International Dictionary or the Oxford English Dictionary should be consulted for spelling. Latin plurals should not be used if the English equivalent has become the accepted form, e.g., formulas, not formulae. Use of hyphens, capital letters and numbers are written or spelled out (e.g., 8 or eight) should be consistent throughout the manuscript. Words at the end of a line should not be divided.


The manuscript should be submitted using the "Online Submission" section in our Web site (www.jrni.Info). We also accept submissions by e-mail at

Authors should submit their manuscript electronically via the homepage of this journal. After registration, authors will be asked to upload their manuscript and associated artwork.

Illustrations (figures) of manuscripts should be in computer format.

Authors must state in a covering letter when submitting papers for publication the novelty embodied in their work or in the approach taken in their research.

Manuscripts submitted under multiple authorship are reviewed on the assumption that all listed authors concur with the submission and that a copy of the final manuscript has been approved by all authors.

We strongly recommend authors to submit the manuscript via our online submission and review system. The Editors reserve the right to make alterations in the text without altering the technical content.


Text of the manuscript should be arranged in the following order: Title, Abstract, Introduction, Body Text, Results and Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgements, and References.

Title: Title should be short and explanatory enough.

Abstract: Abstract should be of no more than 150 words for brief reports and 250 words for original articles and other article types. The abstract should be structured for original articles. State the context (background), aims, settings and design, material and methods, statistical analysis used, results and conclusions. Below the abstract should provide 3 to 8 keywords. The abstract should not be structured for a brief report, review article, symposia and research methodology. Do not include references in the abstract.

Introduction: Introduction should lead the reader to the importance of the study; tie-up published literature with the aims of the study and clearly states the rationale behind the investigation. It should state the purpose and summarize the rationale for the study and gives a concise background. Use references to provide the most salient background rather than an exhaustive review. The last sentence should concisely state your purpose for carrying out the study.

Body Text: It should be elaborative enough to explain all the procedures, methods, observations and data. Use heading and subheading and references wherever needed.

Result and discussion: It is preferred to discuss all the results in detail in case of an original research paper. To explain observed data you can use figures, graphs, and tables.

Conclusion: A conclusion might elaborate on the importance of the work or suggest applications and extensions. 

Page Layout

Your manuscript must use a page size corresponding to A4 which is 210mm (8.27") wide and 297mm (11.69") long. The margins must be set as follows:

Top = 19mm (0.75")

Bottom = 19mm (0.75")

Left = Right = 12.7mm (0.5")

Page Style and Text Font of Entire Document

The entire document should be in Times New Roman or Times font. For page style, the author should use the sample paper (template), attached herewith this guideline.

Title and Author Details

Title and authors details should be provided in the format given in the sample paper (template). 

Format for Abstract

Heading of abstract must be in font size 10, bold, italic and regular. The body of the section immediately follows the heading in the same paragraph in a font size 10, regular. It Abstract should be of no more than 150 words for review article, case studies & technical notes and 250 words for original research paper. Do not include references in the abstract. Below the abstract, the author should provide 3 to 8 keywords.

Format for body Text

The body of the manuscript text must be in a font size 10, regular.

Section Headings

No more than 3 levels of headings should be used. All headings must be in 10pt font.
Level-1 Heading: A level-1 heading must be in font size 10, boldface capitals, centered and should be spaced with a single line above and below. For example, see the heading "INTRODUCTION" in the sample paper.

Level-2 Heading: A level-2 heading must be in italic, left-justified and should be spaced 6 points above and 3 points below. For example, see the heading "Selecting a Template" in the sample paper.

Level-3 Heading: A level-3 heading must be in regular and numbered with an Arabic numeral if needed. The body of the level-3 section immediately follows the level-3 heading in the same paragraph. For example, see heading "For author/s of only one affiliation" in sample paper.
Use more headings, if needed as per the instruction is given in sample paper. 

Figures and Tables

Place figures and tables at the places where they needed. All tables should be in Classic 1 format with borders to heading and subheading columns. Large figures and tables may span across both columns. To do so select text above one column table and convert it into two columns and then select the text below one column table and convert it into two columns. Figure captions should be below the figures; table heads should appear above the tables. Insert figures and tables after they are cited in the text. Use the abbreviation "Fig. 1", even at the beginning of a sentence. We suggest that you use the border for graphic (Ideally 300 dpi) with all fonts embedded and try to reduce the size of the figure to be adjusted in one column. Figure and Table Labels: Use 8 point Times New Roman for Figure and Table labels. Use words rather than symbols or abbreviations when writing Figure axis labels to avoid confusing the reader.

Page Numbers, Headers and Footers

Page numbers, headers, and footers must not be used.

Links and Bookmarks

All hypertext links and section bookmarks should be removed from papers. 

The list and number all bibliographical references in 9-point Times, single-spaced, at the end of your paper. When referenced in the text, enclose the citation number in square brackets, for example [1]. Where appropriate, include the name(s) of editors of referenced books. The template will number citations consecutively within brackets [1]. The sentence punctuation follows the bracket [2]. Refer simply to the reference number, as in [3] -do not use "Ref. [3]" or "reference [3]" excepts at the beginning of a sentence: "Reference [3] was the first. . ." Number footnotes separately in superscripts. Place the actual footnote at the bottom of the column in which it was cited. Do not put footnotes in the reference list. Use letters for table footnotes. Unless there are six authors or more give all authors' names; do not use "et al.". Papers that have not been published, even if they have been submitted for publication, should be cited as "unpublished" [4]. Papers that have been accepted for publication should be cited as "in the press" [5]. Capitalize only the first word in a paper title, except for proper nouns and element symbols. For papers published in translation journals, please give the English citation first, followed by the original foreign-language citation [6].
