Research articles (List of 'References' should include those work cited in the article).
Indian Journal of Science and Technology publishes the original research work in the form of Research articles. The basic research findings and technological advancements in various fields of science can find place. While no stringent regulation is laid on the length of the article, a regular paper must not exceed of 7500 words. Shorter articles are always preferable. The Research article should include Title, Authors (with affiliations), Abstract (less than 250 words), 5-8 Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Acknowledgement and References, in its order.
