JACSON – Applied Chemical Sciences
Title page (14 font size)
The title page should contain a clear, concise, and informative title of the article followed by the names and affiliations of the authors. The affiliation should comprise the department, institution (usually university or company), city, and state (or nation). The Corresponding Author must indicate his/her complete mailing address, office phone number, fax number, and email address at the lower left of the Title Page.
Abstract (12 font size)
The abstract should not be more than 250 words and should contain objectives of the research, material and methods used and results and conclusions, in 10 font size. Abstract should not be structured. Reviews and mini reviews also require an abstract. Abstract must be followed by four-six keywords.
Introduction (12 font size)
This should be brief and indicates aim of the study and the essential background information. Introduction should clearly state the hypothesis or purpose statement, how and why the purpose or hypothesis was developed and why the author deems it important (use 10 font size).
Materials and Method (12 font size)
Please provide concise but complete information about the material and the analytical, statistical and experimental procedures used. This part should be as clear as possible to enable other scientists to repeat the research presented. The use of subheadings to divide the text is encouraged. Primary headings should be in BOLD. Secondary or subheadings should be in Italicized sentence case. In case of animal experiments authors must give the details of ethical approval (use 10 font size).
Results and Discussion (12 font size)
Data acquired from the research with appropriate statistical analysis described in the methods section should be included in this section. In this part, the same data/ information given in a table must not be repeated in a figure, or vice versa. Tables and Figures should be self explanatory and it is not acceptable to repeat extensively the numerals from tables into text and give lengthy and unnecessary explanations of the Tables and Figures. Discussion should relate the results to current understanding of the scientific problems being investigated in the field (use 10 font size).
Conclusion (12 font size)
This should clearly explain the main conclusions of the work highlighting its importance and relevance (use 10 font size).
