Author Guidelines

IJDRA publishes reviews (comprehensive and short), original research papers and technical notes and case studies. Manuscripts will be reviewed by members of the editorial board, whose opinions will form the basis of the final decision by the editor. It is recommended that an English check of the manuscript by a competent and knowledgeable native speaker be completed before submission. Failure to follow them may result in papers being delayed or rejected.

Types of manuscripts

Original Research papers should contain unpublished results of original research, which must be presented in sufficient detail to ensure the reproducibility of the described experiments and should present new experimental studies in elaborate form that constitute a significant contribution to knowledge.

Technical notes should contain new, important information which has not been published and for which urgent publication is desirable. An explanatory statement is required for urgent publication. In general, a technical note should not exceed 4 printed pages. Please also indicate in the cover letter the reason why the manuscript should be treated as a technical note.

Review articles Review articles are concise and critical surveys of novel accomplishments in the author's research field and should bring up the most important current topics or present interpretative and critical accounts, but not simple compilation, on subjects of general interest. The work need not be complete; however, supporting experimental data must be described. They should be around 10-30 pages.

Submitting papers to IJDRA

The publisher will presume that the corresponding author has specifically obtained the approval of all other co-authors to submit the article to IJDRA.

Manuscripts should be neatly typed, 1.5 lines-spaced throughout, including tables, on pages of uniform size with at least 1.5 cm margins on all sides. On acceptance authors are asked to fill the copyright transfer form that is available on journal’s web site.
