Instruction to Authors
The assessment of manuscripts for suitability in ADRRI Journals involves the Editor-in-Chief and Editorial Board members. Appropriate manuscripts undergo evaluation by the Editorial Board and external experts, while unsuitable ones are promptly declined. An Editorial Board member reviews the manuscript and referees' reports, making recommendations to the Editor-in-Chief regarding acceptance, rejection, or the need for revisions. It's crucial to note that a revision request does not guarantee acceptance.
Avoiding Duplicate Publication
To be considered for publication in ADRRI Journal, papers must not be under consideration elsewhere, and no part of the manuscript should be previously published. Simultaneous submission to another journal will result in immediate withdrawal from the review process.
Types of Articles
Articles should be substantive, unsolicited contributions reporting investigations or observations within the scope of ADRRI Journals. Abstracts (150-250 words) are mandatory. Figures and tables are allowed, but data should not be duplicated between a table and a figure.
Solicited by the Editor-in-Chief. Publishers should send a copy of the book to the ADRRI office. Note that books will not be returned, and the receipt of a book does not guarantee a review.
The corresponding author of an accepted manuscript receives a formal acceptance letter and a publication agreement form. This includes details of any final revisions required by the Editor and instructions on formatting according to ADRRI Journals' guidelines. Authors are advised not to submit the final version until these instructions are received. Upon receiving the final version (including all electronic files), authors are notified of editing and publication schedules.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise in the decision letter or reviews, authors must not increase the length of the manuscript. A cover letter with a point-by-point response to referees' comments is required.
Accepted articles are published in the electronic editions of ADRRI Journals. Both abstracts and full papers are available online.
ADRRI Journals reserve the right to edit manuscripts for clarity, grammar, and style. Authors can review editing changes in page proofs but are expected to limit alterations to error corrections. Authors are notified when proofs are available on the ADRRI Journals website, with instructions on downloading. Proofs must be returned by the designated deadline to prevent delays or postponement.
Formatting Electronic Files
Authors must adhere to specified requirements when submitting new or revised manuscripts via the journal's online submission. Failure to follow these instructions may result in processing issues.
Microsoft Word (.doc) in any version.
Word documents should be submitted as a single file. Figures should be included within the text in GIF or JPEG format. It is important to reference and include necessary style files (.sty) needed for compilation. Electronic versions of figures should be in TIFF or EPS (not GIF or JPEG) format. Additionally, submit the cover letter as a separate file in the same format as the main file. If revision or editorial tracking tools were used, ensure the final version does not contain tracked changes.
File Compression and Archives
Authors with more than two files (e.g., manuscript, figures, and cover letter) are recommended to combine these files into an archive for a single upload. If unable to create archives, individual file compression is acceptable to reduce upload time.
Revised and Final Versions of Manuscripts
When submitting a revised manuscript, authors should include responses to reviewer comments as part of the cover letter file. For revised manuscripts with figures, all figures should be included, even if unchanged from the previous version. The final version must be submitted in Word (.doc.) format.
