CORRESPONDING AUTHOR RESPONSIBILITIES

Articles should be submitted by the author. The listed article submitter will be considered the submitting and corresponding author, and will assume all responsibility throughout the article’s peer review and publication. JMRI does not distinguish between submitting and corresponding authors in order to keep this process simple and efficient.

Submitting on behalf of an author: If an administrator wishes to submit an article on behalf of an author, the administrator must do so while signed in with the author’s JMRI account. Additionally, all JMRI email notifications sent during the submission process will be sent to the submitting author (not the administrator). For these reasons, we strongly recommend that authors submit their own work.

Naming Order for Contributors

The order of naming the contributors should be based on the relative contribution of the contributor towards the study and the writing of the manuscript. Once submitted, the order cannot be changed without the written consent of all the contributors.

Authorship

No addition of author(s) will be entertained post submission. Exception to this will be made only with proper justification supported by institution/university head.

Number of Contributors

In the event of a study carried out in a single institute, the number of contributors should not exceed eight. For case-reports, images, letters to the editor, and review articles, the number of contributors should not exceed five. There should be a written justification if the number of contributors exceeds five. If the JMRI feels necessary it may ask for description of the contribution of authors towards the manuscript.

FOR SUBMITTING THE MANUSCRIPT

Kindly submit your blind manuscript through our submission portal.

MANUSCRIPT WALKTHROUGH

Materials and methods- All the ethical permission associated in the research work must be specified. It should provide technical information about the study. Published methodological details are not needed to describe that have been published previously. Specifications (including the manufacturer, city, and the country) should be given for the main drugs, chemicals, and instruments. Indicate the statistical methods used and identify statistical significance using superscripts (* and **) following the data (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.01).

Results- It should reveal the findings of works.

Discussion- It should be with the interpretation of the results and their comparison with those of other studies. No need to repeat the results, review literature, textbook knowledge or cite references that do not have a close relationship with the present result.

Conclusion – conclude the study linking back to the aim of the study.

Abbreviations- At the first appearance in the abstract and the text, abbreviations should be preceded by words for which they stand.

Tables- Tables must be concise and cited consecutively using Arabic numerals in the text (table 1, table 2...etc.). The title of the table should clearly indicate the nature of the contents and sufficient detail should be included in the footnote to facilitate interpretation without reference to the text. Use horizontal rules only.

Table Format – It should be designed using table tools of MS Word and exactly same as below

Table 1:  ---(12 font size, times new roman, normal, bold)

Figures -Figures (photographs, drawings, diagrams and charts) should be clear, easily legible and cited consecutively using Arabic numerals in the text(fig. 1, fig. 2...etc.). Please supply figures 1.5 to 2 times the size at which they will be finally reproduced. For line work, submit black-ink drawings of professional quality. Micrographs or other glossy photographs must be of the highest quality. Use standard symbols: ○, ●, ×, □, ■, △, ▲. Freehand or typewritten lettering is unacceptable. If a figure comprises more than one glossy photograph, these should be marked A, B, C...etc. Figure legends should be marked clearly with their correspond letters. Legends should contain sufficient detail to permit figure interpretation without reference to the text. Scale markers should be indicated in the photographs. Color plates are also welcome.

References

References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text (not in alphabetic order). Identify references in text, tables, and legends by Arabic numerals in parenthesis/bracket like- [1]. References cited only in tables or figure legends should be numbered in accordance with the sequence established by the first identification in the text of the particular table or figure. Use the style of the examples below. Use complete name of the journal for non-indexed journals. Avoid using abstracts as references. Information from manuscripts submitted but not accepted should be cited in the text as “unpublished observations” with written permission from the source. Avoid citing a “personal communication” unless it provides essential information not available from a public source, in which case the name of the person and date of communication should be cited in parentheses in the text. For scientific articles, contributors should obtain written permission and confirmation of accuracy from the source of a personal communication.

The commonly cited types of references are shown here, for other types of references such as electronic media, newspaper items, etc. please refer to ICMJE Guidelines (http://www.icmje.org).

Journal abbreviations source

Journal names should be abbreviated according to CAS Source Index (CASSI) Search Tool abbreviations: http://cassi.cas.org/search.jsp

Short Communication

The journal publishes exciting findings, preliminary data or studies that did not yield enough information to make a full paper as short communications. These have the same format requirements as full papers but are only up to 5 pages in length. Short Communications should not have subtitles such as Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion - all these have to be merged into the running text. Short Communications preferably should have only 3-4 illustrations.

Case Study

It should be divided in Title page, Abstract (non structured), Keywords, Introduction, Case Report, Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgement, References.

Review Articles

Should be about 18 pages long, contain up-to-date information, comprehensively cover relevant literature and preferably be written by scientists who have in-depth knowledge on the topic. All format requirements are same as those applicable to full papers. Review articles need not be divided into sections such as Materials and Methods and Results and Discussion, but should definitely have an Abstract and Introduction, if necessary.

Conflict of Interest statement

It must be declared by authors.

Author contributions

Contribution of each author should be given in the manuscript immediate after acknowledgment/conclusion.

Copyrights: Author holds the copyright post publication.
