International Journal of Bioresource Science is published every quarter. At the same time, it appears in electronic format in website: (https://intbioresourcejr.com/) giving free access to the full text, for a greater international visibility of the authors and the journal. The manuscripts must be written in English. The Editorial Committee and referees are all outstanding national and foreign researchers. The Editorial Board decides on the acceptance or rejection of a paper, and appeals are not accepted.
Original articles should represent a valid contribution to scientific knowledge and should not be submitted simultaneously to other journals. Writing style should be clear, concise, and precise.
The length must not exceed 18 pages for the RESEARCH ARTICLES and REVIEWS sections ,10 pages for SHORT COMMUNICATION and 2-4 pages for POPULAR. Manuscripts must be electronically submitted. Use letter size paper, 11 point Times New Roman, 1.5 spacing, 2.5 cm margins, page numbers at the bottom right-hand corner and continuous line numbers.
A Manuscript submitted to International Journal of Bioresource Science will be gone through review procedure for possible publication considering that it is submitted to one journal at a time and have submitted to other journal simultaneously, have not been published or accepted for publication in other journals either in part or full.

PAPERS ON ORIGINAL RESEARCH, not exceeding 5,000 words.
SHORT COMMUNICATION not more than 1,500 words, which deals with (a) research results which are complete but do not warrant comprehensive treatment, and (b) descriptions of new material or improved techniques, with supporting data. Such notes require no headed sections, but should have abstract. Summary (not more than 70-80 words) is to be provided at the end of the text. There will be no any major and subheadings in the short communication.
CRITICAL RESEARCH REVIEW pointing out lacunae in research and suggesting possible lines of future work under appropriate headings. Not exceeding 7,000 words (approximately 20-22 A4 typed pages). [ONLY INVITED CRITICAL RESEARCH REVIEWS FROM RENOUNCED RESEARCHERS ARE CONSIDERED FOR JAR]
Author should consult the CHECK LIST for authors (given separately) before submission of article.

Authors are urged to include their full names, at minimum, first and last names of each author.
Use the following format: Darsh Shah1, Darshan M. Rudakiya2, Vignesh Iyer1 and Akshaya Gupte2*
If two or more authors contributed equally to an article, this contribution may be acknowledged with a footnote with # sign that states “These authors contributed equally to this study.” However, a biographical sketch will be printed for only the first author (unless the article has only 2 authors). Mark the corresponding author with * as superscript and write details as:
3. Affiliation and corresponding author:
The full name of institutions and subsidiary departments should be given. The address of the institution should include the name of the institution, city, country (in capital, e.g. INDIA). When a paper has several authors from different institutions, key the author to the address with superscript Arabic numerals (for detail please refer current issue papers). Affiliating address should be in italic and centralized. For two different addresses of one author, use different consecutive numbers e.g. 1,2 (as superscript).

This is a list important terms relevant to the content of paper and should be different from title. Up to 4-5 key words should be listed at the bottom of abstract to be used as index terms.
e.g. Keywords: Azo dyes, Degradation, Heavy metals, Phanerochaete chrysosporium, Phenolics
Include Highlights about your article in bulleted text (25-30 words)
In this part no needs to write separate heading like ‘INTRODUCTION”. This is a brief background and limited to the statement of the importance of the study, problem or the aim of the experiment. It may briefly justify the research and specify the hypotheses to be tested. The review of literature should be pertinent to the problem. The specific questions to be addressed the study should also described. Objective of the study should be discussed in view of latest references.
10. MATERIALS AND METHODS
There should be sufficient information to allow other researchers to repeat the experiment by clearly defining the experimental design. A precise description or an explicit reference to all biological, analytical, and statistical procedures is required. All procedure modifications must be explained.
11. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
Results and analyses should be clear and concise, supported by tables and figures, statistical analyses, and reports from other researchers. Results should be analyzed in the text without repeating table or figure values. Do not indicate more than two decimal places.

Letters or numbers should be included in the figures contained in a submitted manuscript along with caption for figures. Authors should place explanatory matter in footnotes, not in the heading. Explain in footnotes all nonstandard abbreviations that are used in each table. For footnotes use the following symbols, in sequence: *,†,‡,§,||,¶,**,††, ‡‡
14. Nomenclatures, Unit, Abbreviations, and Symbols Nomenclatures for chemicals and biochemicals, microorganism, and genes should follow the guidelines in the instructions to authors of journals published by American Society for Microbiology. SI units (System International Unites) should be used whenever possible. Abbreviations should be used for those recommended by IUPA-IUB Commission on Biochemical Nomenclature and Related Documents.
