Guidelines for Authors
IJPEHSS is published biannually in March and September. Articles written in English should be sent to the editor of IJPEHSS. The research paper for publication in the journal could be sent not only in typed manuscript form but also through the Internet using email attachment. Keeping in view the postal delays, authors, therefore, are encouraged to submit their research material/articles as email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
Manuscripts are considered if they are submitted only to IJPEHSS and therefore should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere, either in part or in whole. Authors are responsible for the scientific context and legal aspects of the articles. Editors may make necessary changes to articles in accordance with “instructions to Authors”. Normally the complete research paper should not exceed 6 to 7 typed pages including tables and figures; however under exceptional circumstances this limit can be relaxed. There is no page and reference limitation for the review articles. All files related to manuscripts should be submitted electronically. Internet transmission and e-mail attachments are preferred; CD—ROM is acceptable for large files. Text files should be in Microsoft Word 6.0 and later versions. Each figure. table photograph or other image should be submitted in electronically. The manuscripts should be submitted in Times New Roman font, 12-point type, double spaced with 3cm margins on all sides. The reference style used by the Journal is the Harvard System of referencing.
