Organization of the paper and style of presentation

Manuscripts must be written in English. Authors whose native language is not English are advised to seek the advice of a native English speaker, before submitting their manuscripts.

You can also visit International Science Editing offers a language and copyediting service to all scientists who want to publish their manuscript in scientific peer-reviewed periodicals and books.

Manuscripts should be prepared with wide margins and double spacing throughout, including the abstract, footnotes and references. Every page of the manuscript, including the title page, references, tables, etc., should be numbered. However, in the text no reference should be made to page numbers; if necessary, one may refer to sections. Try to avoid the excessive use of italics and bold face.

Manuscripts should be organized in the following order:
Title page
Body of text (divided by subheadings)
Figure captions
Headings and subheadings should be numbered and typed on a separate line, without indentation.

SI units should be used, i.e., the units based on the metre, kilogramme, second, etc.

Title Page
The title page should provide the following information:
Title (should be clear, descriptive and not too long)
Name(s) of author(s); please indicate who is the corresponding author
Full affiliation(s)
Present address of author(s), if different from affiliation
Complete address of corresponding author, including tel. no., fax no. and e-mail address
Abstract; should be clear, descriptive, self-explanatory and not longer than 200 words, it should also be suitable for publication in abstracting services

Number as Table 1, Table 2 etc, and refer to all of them in the text.

Each table should be provided on a separate page of the manuscript. Tables should not be included in the text.

Each table should have a brief and self-explanatory title.

Column headings should be brief, but sufficiently explanatory. Standard abbreviations of units of measurement should be added between parentheses.

Vertical lines should not be used to separate columns. Leave some extra space between the columns instead.

Any explanations essential to the understanding of the table should be given in footnotes at the bottom of the table.

For citations in the text, international standards must be followed at all points of references i.e. names(s) of author(s), year of publication, title, publisher, volume no. and must be checked thoroughly. For example:

(a) Madhavan, N. and V. Subramanian (2001). Fluoride concentration in river waters in South Asia. Current Science, 80:1312-1319. (b) Silva, E.I.L. (1999). Status of water quality in Sri Lanka. In: Recent trends in Environmental Biogeochemistry. V. Ittekot and V. Subramanian (eds.), SCOPE publicaction, Hamburg University, Hamnburg, Germany, 240 p.
