RJLBPCS publishes the following types of Articles:

ORIGINAL RESEARCH ARTICLES FORMAT
The preferred format of all manuscript is MS Word, (figures) and images must be inserted in the manuscript at the position they should appear when published. The language of the journal is English. Each manuscript should be Manuscripts should be submitted in Word. Use a normal, plain font (e.g., 12-point Times Roman) for text. typed Single-spaced on A4 (8.5″ × 11″) paper size with 1 inch margins. It should be arranged in the following order: Title, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgement, References.
Title page should contain title of the paper in bold face, title case (font size 14), names of the authors in normal face, upper case (font size 12) followed by the address in normal face lower case. The author to whom all correspondence be addressed should be denoted by an asterisk mark. The title should be as short as possible and precisely indicate the nature of the work in the communication. Names of the authors should appear as initials followed by surnames. At the bottom left corner of the title page, please mention “*Address For correspondence” and provide a functional e-mail address. Address of the corresponding author to whom all correspondence may be sent should be given only if it is different from the address already given under authors’ names.
Should start on a new page after the title page and should be typed in single-space to distinguish it from the Introduction. Abstracts should briefly reflect all aspects of the study, as most databases list mainly abstracts.
Provide four to six appropriate key words after abstract.
Shall start immediately after the Abstract, as the next paragraph, but should be typed in single - space. The Introduction should lead the reader to the importance of the study; tie-up published literature with the aims of the study and clearly states the rationale behind the investigation.
Materials and Methods
Shall 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, citing references. Trivial details may be avoided. 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. RJLBPCS prefers to publish work that has been subjected to an appropriate statistical test at one level of significance.
All findings presented in tabular or graphical form shall be described in this section. The data should be statistically analyzed and the level of significance stated. Data that is not statistically significant need only to be mentioned in the text – no illustration is necessary. All Tables and figures must have a title or caption and a legend to make them self-explanatory. Results section shall start after materials and methods section on the same page.
This section should follow results, deal with the interpretation of results, convey how they help increase current understanding of the problem and should be logical. Unsupported hypothesis should be avoided. The Discussion should state the possibilities the results uncover, that need to be further explored. There is no need to include another title such as “Conclusions” at the end of Discussion. Results and discussion of results can also be combined under one section, Results and Discussion.
This should state clearly the main conclusions of the research and give a clear explanation of their importance and relevance. A short, paragraph summarizing the most important findings of the research is required.
Should be given after the text and not in the form of foot-notes.
Should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text (not in alphabetic order). Identify references in text, tables, and legends by Arabic numerals in square brackets. References cited only in tables or figure legends should be numbered in accordance with the sequence established by the first identification in the text of the particular table or figure.

Tables- Should be typed on separate sheets of paper and should not preferably contain any molecular structures. Only MS word table format should be used for preparing tables. Tables should show lines separating columns but not those separating rows except for the top row that shows column captions.
Tables should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and bear a brief title in capital letters normal face. Tables should not be very large that they run more than one A4 sized page.
Figures should be inserted or embedded within the text but not on separate pages . Figures should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and bear a brief title in lower case bold face letters below the figure. Graphs and bar graphs should preferably be prepared using Microsoft Excel and submitted as Excel graph pasted in Word.
Abbreviations, Units Etc
Authors should follow internationally agreed rules especially those adopted by the IUPAC-IUB Commission on Biochemical Nomenclature (CBN). The journal will essentially follow the rules defined in the IUPAC Manua1 of symbols and terminology for physico-chemical quantities and units.
The research and technical communications section of this journal (maximum 1,500 words) is open to interesting results worthy of publication without requiring extensive introduction and discussion. This portion should be organized as follows: Abstract, Introduction, Materials and methods, Results and discussion (combined). Not more than 10-15 references should be mentioned. Tables, figures and references are to be arranged in the same way as for original research articles. Brevity of presentation is essential for this section.REVIEW ARTICLES
Should be about 5-30 pages long, contain up-to-date information, comprehensively cover relevant literature and preferably be written by scientists who have in-depth knowledge on the topic. All format requirements are same as those applicable to full papers.

RJLBPCS JOURNAL is a self supporting publisher and does not receive funding from any institution/government. Hence, the operation of the journal is solely financed by the handling fees received from authors. Authors are required to make payment only after peer reviewmanuscript has been accepted for publication. For Indian Authors : Article Nominal Processing Charges + DOI Charges Authors = 2000INR for Research Student and Two or More Authors 3000 INR or Doctors, Research Fellow, Assistant Professor, Associate Professors, Professors, Scientist = 3000 INR 3000 INR (Authors have to pay as nominal charges. (Cost towards Cross Ref DOI, Reviewer processing charges, maintenance of research paper in secured data storage system in life time, databases for future Indexing and archiving of the material, checking plagiarism related issues, to meet various overhead expenses like Office, employee’s charges and life time maintenance cost etc.). Other Countries $ 50
