the below guideline for submission.
Complete names and affiliation of all authors,
including contact details of corresponding author (Telephone, Fax and E-mail
The abstract should be informative and completely
self-explanatory, briefly present the topic, state the scope of the
experiments, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and
conclusions. The abstract should summarize the chapter content in 300 words or
less. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided.
The preferable format should accommodate a description of the study background,
methods, results and conclusion. Following the abstract, a list of keywords
(3-10) and abbreviations should be included.
Introduction: The introduction should set the tone of the
paper by providing a clear statement of the study, the relevant literature on the
study subject and the proposed approach or solution. The introduction should be
general enough to attract a reader\'s attention from a broad range of
Materials and Methods: This section should provide
a complete overview of the design of the study. Detailed descriptions of
materials or participants, comparisons, interventions and types of analysis
should be mentioned. However, only new procedures should be described in
detail; previously published procedures should be cited and important
modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Capitalize
trade names and include the manufacturer\'s name and address.
Results: The results section should provide complete details
of the experiment that are required to support the conclusion of the study. The
results should be written in the past tense when describing findings in the
authors\' experiments. Previously published findings should be written in the
present tense. Results and discussion may be combined or in a separate section.
Speculation and detailed interpretation of data should not be included in the
results but should be put into the discussion section.
Acknowledgement: This section includes
acknowledgment of people, grant details, funds, etc.
Note: If an author fails to submit his/her work as per
the above instructions, they are pleased to maintain clear titles namely
References: Only published or accepted chapters/papers should
be included in the reference list. Meetings abstracts, conference talks, or
papers that have been submitted but not yet accepted should not be cited. All
personal communications should be supported by a letter from the relevant
SunText Reviews uses the numbered citation
(citation-sequence) method. References are listed and numbered in the order
that they appear in the text. In the text, citations should be indicated by the
reference number in brackets. Multiple citations within a single set of
brackets should be separated by commas. When there are three or more sequential
citations, they should be given as a range. Example: \"... now enable
biologists to simultaneously monitor the expression of thousands of genes in a
single experiment [1,5-7,28]". Make sure the parts of the chapter are in
the correct order for the relevant e-book before ordering the citations. Figure
captions and tables should be at the end of the chapter.
Authors are requested to provide at least one
online link for each reference as following (preferably PubMed). Because all
references will be linked electronically as much as possible to the papers they
cite, proper formatting of the references is crucial. Please use the following
style for the reference list.

add \"et al.\" if there are additional authors.
These should be used at a minimum and designed as simple as possible. We strongly encourage authors to submit tables as .doc format. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. Preferably, the details of the methods used in the experiments should be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph form or repeated in the text. Cells can be copied from an Excel spreadsheet and pasted into a word document, but Excel files should not be embedded as objects.
Note: If the submission is in PDF format, the author is
requested to retain the same in .doc format in order to aid in completion of
The preferred file formats for photographic images
are .doc, TIFF and JPEG. If you have created images with separate components on
different layers, please send us the Photoshop files.
All images must be at or above intended display
size, with the following image resolutions: Line Art 800 dpi, Combination (Line
Art + Halftone) 600 dpi, Halftone 300 dpi. See the Image quality specifications
chart for details. Image files also must be cropped as close to the actual
image as possible.
Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper
case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and
include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without
reading the text of the chapter. Information given in legends should not be
repeated in the text.
These should be typed in numerical order on a
Tables and Equations as Graphics
If equations cannot be encoded in MathML, submit
them in TIFF or EPS format as discrete files (i.e., a file containing only the
data for one equation). Only when tables cannot be encoded as XML/SGML can they
be submitted as graphics. If this method is used, it is critical that the font
size in all equations and tables is consistent and legible throughout all
Discrete items of the Supplementary Information
(for example, figures, tables) referred to at an appropriate point in the main
text of the chapter. Summary diagram/figure included as part of the
Supplementary Information (optional). All Supplementary Information is supplied
as a single PDF file, where possible. File size within the permitted limits for
Supplementary Information. Images should be a maximum size of 640 x 480 pixels
(9 x 6.8 inches at 72 pixels per inch).
Proofs and Reprints
Electronic proofs will be sent as an E-mail
attachment to the corresponding author as a PDF file. Page proofs are
considered to be the final version of the chapter. With the exception of
typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes will be made in the chapter
at the proof stage. Authors will have free electronic access to the full text
(HTML and PDF) of the chapter. Authors can freely download the PDF file from
which they can print unlimited copies of their chapters.
