Manuscript Submission

Please send your manuscript electronically to editor@fidss.org or mamun @ ru .ac .bd following the instructions given below:

 

General Considerations

Research manuscripts should comprise:

  • Title page: Title, Author list, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords
  • Manuscript sections: Introduction, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgments, References, Supplementary Materials (optional)

Review manuscripts should comprise the front matter, literature review sections and the back matter.

 

Permissions

Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.

 

Special Note

Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities – tacitly or explicitly – at the institute where the work has been carried out. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.

 

Text Formatting

  • Manuscripts should be submitted in Word.
  • Use a normal, plain font (e.g. 10-point Times Roman) for text
  • Use italics for emphasis
  • Use the automatic page numbering function to number the pages
  • Save your file in docx format (Word 2007 or higher) or doc format (older Word versions)

Abstract

Please provide an abstract of 150 to 250 words. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references.

Keywords

Please provide 4 to 6 keywords that can be used for indexing purposes.

Headings

Please use no more than three levels of displayed headings.

Footnotes

Footnotes can be used to give additional information, which may include the citation of a reference included in the reference list. They should not consist solely of a reference citation, and they should never include the bibliographic details of a reference. They should also not contain any figures or tables.

Footnotes to the text are numbered consecutively; those to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data). Footnotes to the title or the authors of the article are not given reference symbols.

Always use footnotes instead of endnotes.

Scientific style

Please always use internationally accepted signs and symbols for units (SI units).

Genus and species names should be in italics.

Citation

Cite references in the text by name and year in parentheses. Some examples:

Environment has many aspects (Thompson 1990).

  • This result was contradicted by Becker and Seligman (1996).
  • Agroforestry has been widely studied (Abbott 1991; Barakat et al. 1995a, b; Kelso and Smith 1998; Medvec et al. 1999, 2000).

Reference list

The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published. Personal communications and unpublished works should only be mentioned in the text. Do not use footnotes or endnotes as a substitute for a reference list.

Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last names of the first author of each work. Order multi-author publications of the same first author alphabetically with respect to second, third, etc. author. Publications of exactly the same author(s) must be ordered chronologically.

Ideally, the names of all authors should be provided, but the usage of “et al” in long author lists will also be accepted:
