Instruction to Authors

Manuscript Evaluation

Manuscripts undergo assessment for suitability in ADRRI Journals, led by the Editor-in-Chief with support from the Editorial Board. Appropriate submissions proceed to the Editorial Board and external experts for review. Manuscripts deemed inappropriate are declined. Evaluation includes recommendations from an Editorial Board member on acceptance, rejection, or revision. A revision request does not guarantee acceptance.

Duplicate Publication

ADRRI Journal considers papers under the condition that they are not concurrently under review elsewhere, and no part of the manuscript has been previously published. Simultaneous submission to another journal leads to immediate withdrawal from the review process.

Types of Articles

ADRRI Journals consider two types of submissions

Articles: Substantive, unsolicited contributions reporting relevant investigations or observations within ADRRI Journals' scope. Abstracts (150-250 words) are mandatory. Figures and tables are allowed, but data should not be duplicated.

Book Reviews: Solicited by the Editor-in-Chief. Publishers send one copy of the book to the ADRRI office. Note that books will not be returned, and receipt does not guarantee a review.


Notice of Acceptance

Corresponding authors of accepted manuscripts receive a formal letter of acceptance and a publication agreement form. The letter outlines final revision requests and provides information on formatting according to ADRRI Journals guidelines.

Authors should not submit a final version until these instructions are received. Once the final version is submitted, including all electronic files, authors receive notice of editing and publication schedules.


Authors must not increase the length of the manuscript unless otherwise specified. A cover letter with a point-by-point response to referees’ comments is required. 


Electronic Publication

Accepted articles are electronically published, with abstracts and full papers available in the electronic edition.



ADRRI Journals reserve the right to edit for clarity, grammar, and style. Authors review editing changes in page proofs but must limit alterations to correcting errors. Proofs are made available on the ADRRI Journals website with instructions for download. Proofs must be returned by the designated deadline to prevent publication delays.



Formatting Electronic Files

Adherence to submission requirements is crucial. Failure to follow instructions results in unprocessed submissions.

Acceptable Formats

Microsoft Word (.doc) in any version.


File Contents

  1. Word documents should be a single file. Figures should be within the text, in GIF [.gif] or JPEG [.jpg]) format.
  2. Necessary style files (.sty) should be included.
  3. Electronic versions of figures must be in TIFF or EPS (not GIF or JPEG) format.
  4. Cover letters should be submitted as a separate file in the same format as the main file.
  5. Ensure the final version of the manuscript does not contain tracked changes.


File Compression and Archives

Combine files into an archive for efficient uploading. Compression of individual files is recommended if creating archives in specific formats is not feasible.

Revised and Final Versions of Manuscripts

Revised manuscripts should include responses to reviewer comments in the cover letter file. When submitting a revised manuscript with figures, include all figures, even if unchanged. The final version must be submitted in Word (.doc.).
