Open Access Policy
Open access to the article generally increases the visibility and thus the readership. Hence, in order to have the maximum visibility for the articles published in Indo Global Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, all the articles are open access and free to download by the readers.
All manuscripts are reviewed by the editors, members of the editorial board, or qualified ad hoc reviewers. When a manuscript is submitted to the journal, it is given a number and assigned to two reviewers. The reviewers operate under strict guidelines and are expected complete their reviews quickly. Within 6 to 8 weeks after submission, the corresponding author will be notified of the editor’s decision to accept without change, recommended for modification, further review, or reject. When modifications are requested, the corresponding author must submit the modified version within the deadline given to them. Manuscripts that have been rejected, may be resubmitted if the major criticisms have been addressed. The cover letter must state that the manuscript is a re-submission, and the former manuscript number should be provided in the appropriate field on the submission form.
Reviewers can register, if they are willing to review for Indo Global Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Click here to register.
The manuscripts should be submitted with a cover letter declaring that the study was conducted in compliance with international, national and institutional regulations pertaining to animal experiments and clinical studies. It should also be clearly stated that the study protocol complies with a particular recommendation and was approved for use. The cover letter should explicitly state that the manuscript has not been previously published in any language anywhere and that it is not under simultaneous consideration by another journal. Authors must describe in a covering letter, when submitting papers for publication, the novelty of their work or in the approach taken in their research. It is welcomed that the brief introduction of the first author and the corresponding author sent in attached file.
The manuscripts must be type-written in clear, grammatically correct English with no typographical errors. Manuscripts that do not meet the minimal requirements for English grammar and composition will be rejected immediately. Manuscripts with text that is faint or illegible or with substandard illustrations will be returned to the authors.
Neatly type every portion of the manuscript (Times New Roman, Font size 10, spacing 1.0). The manuscript should be prepared and numbered consecutively as follows: Title page, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgements, Conflicts of Interest, Data Availability, Author’s Contribution, Funding Statement, References, Figure legends, Tables and Figures.
Use one font type and size throughout the manuscript. Leave one space after a comma, except in chemical names, for example, 1,2,3,4- tetramethyl. For the identification of pharmaceutical substances, the International Nonproprietary Names (INN) proposed and recommended by the WHO should be used. For the units of measurement, the use of the International System of Units (SI) is recommended: m (meter), g (gram), kg (kilogram), μg (microgram), s (second), min (minute), h (hour), d (day), y (year), l (litre), μl (microlitre), ng/ml not ng•ml-1 and r/min not rpm. Excessive abbreviations should be avoided and abbreviations other than those acknowledged, uniform and standard should be contained in brackets at their first use.
New, significant, innovative and original findings are suitable as Research papers. There is no page limit for Research Article.
Title page Please give the title (capital for first character), running title (not to exceed 50 characters and spaces), name of each author and an asterisk placed after the name of the corresponding author, address(es) of the institution(s) at which the work was performed, each author’s affiliation, and a footnote including the complete mailing address, a single telephone number, a single fax number, and a single e-mail address for the corresponding author.
Abstract Abstract not exceeding 250 words should be arranged in the pattern covering Purpose, Methods, Results and Conclusions. The abstract could be structured or unstructured. Avoid abbreviations.

Introduction The introduction should not be an extensive literature review although it should provide sufficient background information for the reader to understand and evaluate the results of the present study without referring to previous publications on the same topic.
Materials and methods The section should include sufficient technical information to allow the experiments to be repeated. Procedural detail that has been published previously should be referred to by citation. When a modified procedure is used, only the author’s modifications of the previously published method need to be given in detail.
Results and Discussion Results should be described as concisely as possible in one of the following ways: text, table(s), or figure(s). Avoid extensive use of graphs to present data that might be more concisely or more comprehensively presented in the figures or tables. The number of tables and figures should be restricted to 4 and 8 respectively. The reproducibility and statistical significance of measurements, material or biological data, must be included where relevant. The discussion should provide an interpretation of the results and their significance with regard to previously published work. There should not be any significant repetition of the experimental procedures or reiteration of the introduction.
Conclusion A short, paragraph summarizing the most important finding(s) of the research is required.
Acknowledgments The source of any financial support, gifts, technical assistance and advice received for the work being published must be indicated in the Acknowledgments section.
Data Availability: Authors should declare if the data pertaining to the manuscript will be available to the public and provided by them after query or not.
