Original Research Articles

Research Articles must be typed and all pages are to be numbered. Title page must include full name of the author, phone number, mobile number and e-mail Id and present address. The abstract state that the scope of research and point out materials and methods, findings and conclusion. The abstract should be 100 to 200 words. The abstract must be in complete sentences, verbs should be clear and abstract should be written in the past tense. Five to ten key words will be provide index reference should be listed.


Introduction must be in clear & stating that reasons for carry out of research work, background regarding the research nature of hypothesis should be clearly stated. The introduction should be understandable to reaches from various science disciplines.

Materials and Methods

Materials and methods do not refer to common place statistical test. It must be enough to allow experiments to be reproduced. If any previous published research work can also be cited and notification should be mentioning clearly. Subheadings should be used.


Results of research articles or manuscripts should be present with clarity and precise. Previous publisher’s findings should be written in present tense. Results should be explained. Discussion, interpretation should be included in the results but should be put into the discussion section.


Discussion part of the research paper includes the sub heading, significance of the results related to research work.


This section should be thanks to people, granting body, university departments, college departments should be in a brief manner.


Tables and chart in the research paper should be kept minimum and simple. It should be double line space including the heading and foot note. Table should be presented in separate page, it should be numbered. Table must be preparing in MS Word.

Figure legends

Figures in the paper brought in a numerical order on a separate sheet. Graphics should be preparing with resolution GIF, JPEG, TIFF and power point are pasting in MS word file. Use Arabic numerical for figures and upper case letter for their parts.


In the text, a reference identified by means of an author‘s name should be followed by the date of the reference in parentheses. When there are more than two authors, only the first author‘s name should be mentioned, followed by ’et al‘. In the event that an author cited has had two or more works published during the same year, the reference, both in the text and in the reference list, should be identified by a lower case letter like ’a‘ and ’b‘ after the date to distinguish the works.

References should be listed at the end of the paper in alphabetical order. Articles in preparation or articles submitted for publication, unpublished observations, personal communications, etc. should not be included in the reference list but should only be mentioned in the article text (e.g., K.Tim, Chennai, Magazine or personal communication, Newsletter). Journal names are abbreviated according to Chemical Abstracts. Authors are fully responsible for the accuracy of the references.

Short Communications

Short Communications are limited to a maximum of two figures and one table. They should present a complete study that is more limited in scope than is found in full-length papers. The items of manuscript preparation listed above apply to Short Communications with the following differences:
(1) Abstracts are limited to 100 words
(2) instead of a separate Materials and Methods section, experimental procedures may be incorporated into Figure Legends and Table footnotes
(3) Results and Discussion should be combined into a single section.

Proofs and Reprints

Electronic proofs will be sent (e-mail attachment) to the corresponding author as a PDF file. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the manuscript. With the exception of typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage. Because the IJCMAS will be published freely online to attract a wide audience), authors will have free electronic access to the full text (in PDF) of the article. Authors can freely download the PDF file from which they can print unlimited copies of their articles.


Submission of a manuscript implies; that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, or thesis) that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that if and when the manuscript is accepted for publication, the authors agree to automatic transfer of the copyright to the publisher.

Fees and Charges

Authors are required to pay Rs.3000 for Indian Authors and 100U$ for foreign authors towards as processing fee. Publication of an article in the International Journal of Current Microbiology and Applied Sciences is not contingent upon the author's ability to pay the charges. Neither is acceptance to pay the processing fee a guarantee that the paper will be accepted for publication. Authors may still request (in advance) that the editorial office waive some of the processing fee under special circumstances.


After acceptance of the manuscript with the journal formatted proof, authors must pay the processing charges as prescribed in the guidelines to authors. Once paid the processing fees it should not be refund from publishers.
