Instruction to Authors

Manuscript Evaluation Process

Manuscripts undergo a thorough evaluation by the Editor-in-Chief, supported by the Editorial Board, to determine their suitability for ADRRI Journals. Appropriate manuscripts proceed to review by the Editorial Board and external experts, while unsuitable ones are promptly declined. An Editorial Board member assesses the manuscript and referees' reports, making recommendations to the Editor-in-Chief for acceptance, rejection, or revision. It's crucial to note that a request for revision does not guarantee acceptance for publication.

Avoiding Duplicate Publication

ADRRI Journal considers papers for publication under the condition that they are not simultaneously under consideration by another journal, and no part of the manuscript has been published elsewhere. Any simultaneous submission to another journal results in an immediate withdrawal from the review process.

Types of Articles and Acceptance Procedures

Article Types

Articles: Substantive, unsolicited contributions reporting investigations or observations within ADRRI Journals' scope. Abstracts (150-250 words) are mandatory. Figures and tables may be included, but data should not be duplicated in both a table and a figure.

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

Acceptance Procedures

Notice of Acceptance, the corresponding author of an accepted manuscript receives a formal letter of acceptance and a publication agreement form. The letter outlines final revision requirements and provides information on formatting according to ADRRI Journals guidelines. Authors are advised not to submit the final version until these instructions are received. Once the final version is submitted (including all necessary electronic files), authors receive notices regarding editing and publication schedules.


Authors are cautioned against increasing the length of the manuscript unless specified otherwise. A cover letter with a detailed response to referees' comments is required.

Electronic Publication

Accepted articles are published in the electronic editions of ADRRI Journals, with abstracts and full papers available online.


ADRRI Journals reserve the right to edit manuscripts for clarity, grammar, and journal style. Authors can review editing changes in page proofs but are encouraged to limit alterations to correcting errors.

Formatting Electronic Files

Acceptable Formats

Microsoft Word (.doc) in any version.

File Contents

Word documents should be submitted as a single file. Figures should be included within the text in GIF or JPEG format. Authors must reference and include necessary style files (.sty) for compilation. Electronic versions of figures should be in TIFF or EPS (not GIF or JPEG) format.

Cover Letter Submission

Submit as a separate file in the same format as the main file. Authors using revision or editorial tracking tools should ensure the final version of the manuscript does not contain tracked changes.

File Compression and Submission of Revised Manuscripts

If submitting a revised manuscript, authors must include responses to reviewer comments in the cover letter file. Figures, even if unchanged, should be included. The final version of the manuscript must be submitted in Word (.doc.) format.
