All standard paper components have been specified for three reasons: (1) ease of use when formatting individual papers, (2) automatic compliance to electronic requirements that
facilitate the concurrent or later production of electronic products, and (3) conformity of style throughout journal publication. Margins, column widths, line spacing, and type styles are built-in; examples of the type styles are provided throughout this document. Some components, such as
multi-leveled equations, graphics, and tables are not prescribed, although the various table text styles are provided. The formatter will need to create these components, incorporating the applicable criteria that follow.
First, confirm that you have the correct template for your paper size. This template has been tailored for output on the A4 paper size.
Define abbreviations and acronyms the first time they are used in the text, even after they have been defined in the abstract. Abbreviations such as IEEE, SI, MKS, CGS, sc, dc, and rms do not have to be defined. Do not use abbreviations in the title or heads unless they are unavoidable.
Be clear; No image format
1) The superscript and subscript should be clearly shown in a formula.
2) The formula should be numbered in order with Arabic numerals, and the number should be put in brackets after each formula
The equations are an exception to the prescribed specifications of this template. You will need to determine whether or not your equation should be typed using either the Times New Roman or the Symbol font (please no other font). To create multileveled equations, it may be necessary to treat the equation as a graphic and insert it into the text after your paper is styled. Equation numbers, within parentheses, are to position flush right, as in (1), using a right tab stop. To make your equations more compact, you may use the solidus ( / ), the exp function, or appropriate exponents. Italicize Roman symbols for quantities and variables, but not Greek symbols. Use a long dash rather than a hyphen for a minus sign. Punctuate equations with commas or periods when they are part of a sentence, as in
Note that the equation is centered using a center tab stop. Be sure that the symbols in your equation have been defined before or immediately following the equation. Use “(1)”, not “Eq. (1)” or “equation (1)”, except at the beginning of a sentence: “Equation (1) is . . .”
Figures may be included within the body of the manuscript. Figures should be numbered sequentially as they appear, i.e. Fig. 1, Fig. 2, etc., and a caption should appear directly below each figure. Figures may be *.xls, GIF or JPEG format.
Note: Draw molecules’s structure using ChemDraw software in ACS format.
viability and proliferative activity of PBMCs (Fig. 2 and 3).
Large figures and tables may span across both columns. Figure captions should be below the figures; table heads should appear above the tables. Insert figures and tables after they are cited in the text. Use the “Figure 1”, even at the beginning of a sentence
1) Figures should be numbered in order with clear annotations;
2) Figures should be numbered just with Arabic numbers without letters
in this unified style, such as Figure 1, Figure 2, Figure 3 and so on.
3) The annotation should be editable and outside of a picture.
4) The annotation to the figure should be written under the figure.
The table is as follows: Use words rather than symbols or abbreviations when writing Figure axis labels to avoid confusing the reader. As an example, write the quantity “Magnetization”, or “Magnetization, M”, not just “M”
1) Tables should be numbered in order with clear annotations;
2) No image format;
3) All tables should be editable;
4) Tables should be numbered just with Arabic numbers without letters in this unified style, such as Table 1, Table 2, Table 3 and so on.
5) The annotation to the table should be written in front of the table.
Citation in text
The template will number citations consecutively within brackets . The sentence punctuation follows the bracket . Refer simply to the reference number, as in —do not use “Ref. ” or “reference ” except at the beginning of a sentence: The references referred to in the main text of the paper should be written in the unified form, such as , ,  and so on. For example,  is written in a normal style not in superscript. Place the actual footnote at the bottom of the column in which it was cited. Do not put footnotes in the reference list. Use letters for table footnotes.
Unless there are six authors or more give all authors' names; do not use “et al.”. Papers that have not been published, even if they have been submitted for publication, should be cited as
“unpublished” . Papers that have been accepted for publication should be cited as “in press” . Capitalize only the first word in a paper title, except for proper nouns and element symbols.
For papers published in translation journals, please give the English citation first, followed by the original foreign-language citation .
Experiment should start as a continuation to introduction on the same page. All important materials used along with their source shall be mentioned. The main methods used shall be briefly described, with references. New methods or substantially modified methods may be described in sufficient detail. The statistical method and the level of significance chosen shall be clearly stated.
11 -Results and discussion
The results and discussion should be given under one section, first giving the results followed by a discussion of its significance for easy understanding. The discussion should deal with the interpretation of results. It should relate the new findings to the known and include logical deductions.
Only such data as are essential for understanding the discussion and main conclusions emerging from the study should be included. Data should be arranged in a unified and coherent sequence so that the report develops clearly and logically. The data should be statistically analyzed, and the level of significance given. The same data should not be presented in both tabular and graphic forms.
All Tables and figures must have a title and a legend to make them self-explanatory and they should be given numbers. Each table or figure should be on main body of the text.Discussion should contain a critical review of the results of the study with the support of relevant literature.
It should stem directly from the data presented and no extra material should be introduced. It should be consistent with the introduction in fulfilling any promise made therein to the reader. The conclusion should also include negative results and recommendations based on the results. In such cases where the study has lead to clearcut finding, it is preferable to give the conclusions in the form of a series of numbered points.
All acknowledgments should be typed in one paragraph directly preceding the reference section.
The preferred spelling of the word “acknowledgment” in America is without an “e” after the “g”. Avoid the stilted expression, “One of us (R. B. G.) thanks . . .” Instead, try “R. B. G. thanks”. Put sponsor acknowledgments in the unnum-bered footnote on the first page
1) No pictures or formulas in reference.
2) Please list at least 10 pieces of references.
3) should be numbered such as , , …
Journal abbreviations source
Journal names should be abbreviated according to the List of Title Word Abbreviations.
The journals have Its reference template available in many of the most popular reference management software products such as EndNote. http://www.pcbiochemres.com/data/pcbr/news/PCBR%20style%20.ens
Using the word processor plug-ins from these products, authors only need to select the appropriate journal template when preparing their article, after which citations and bibliographies will be automatically formatted in the journal's style. If no template is yet available for this journal, please follow the format of the sample references and citations as shown in this Guide. If you use reference management software, please ensure thatyou remove all field codes before submitting the electronic manuscript.
Manuscripts must contain at least 10 references. The references must cite recent and relevant research only. At least half (50%) of the references should be published within the last 10 years.
