Editorial procedure

 

General presentation

Journal of New Sciences : all manuscripts should be written in English or French.

The manuscript should report the results of original research. The material should not have been previously published or submitted for publication elsewhere.

The text length is limited to 15 pages, including figures, tables and references. The number of literature references is limited to 30, except for review articles. All text should be written in a concise and integrated way, by focusing on major points, findings, breakthrough or discoveries, and their broad significance. All running text should be in Times New Roman 11, 1,5 spacing. Figure and table captions should be written in Times New Roman 9.

 

Title

The title should be short and focused on the main scientific discovery.
If the paper is written in French please add the title in English.

 

Names of the authors 

The names of the authors should be written in order of contribution. For every name add an exponent number indicating the affiliation of the author.

 

Affiliation of the authors

Write for each number the author’s affiliation. 

Same for paper written in English or in French please write affiliate organizations of authors in English.

Please indicate the University for every organization of affiliation.

 

Abstract

The abstract of less than 300 words should report concisely on the main scientific breakthrough. The abstract should preferably not contain general statements, abbreviations, and literature references.

 

Key word

Do not repeat the words already in the title of the paper. Search engines such as Google automatically search the title. Key words should draw attention to features of the paper not addressed in the title.  .

 

Sections

The text should start with: article title; name of authors with an asterisk “*” highlighting the corresponding author; e-mail address of the corresponding author; 6 keywords. The text should contain the following sections:

- Abstract (less than 300 words)

- List of keywords (maximum 6)

- 1. Introduction

- 2. Materials and methods (including subsections - 2.1, 2.2...)

- 3. Results and discussion (including topical subsections - 3.1, 3.2...)

- 4. Conclusion

Acknowledgments

- 5. References

Other sections such as annexes and appendices are not accepted.

 

Abbreviations

In general abbreviations are not accepted in the main text because they decrease article impact. Only 1-2 common abbreviations are accepted in the main text. They should be explained at the first time of appearance. Abbreviations in figures, tables and equations are accepted only if there is not enough space to write full words. Here, abbreviations should be explained in figure and table captions, or after equations.

 

Graphics:

Graphs should be inserted inside a table with 1 (or 2) column(s) and two rows; the first row for the graph(s); the second row for the legend. Please always supply in Excel or Open Office Calc the original spreadsheets including graphs and data which were used to produce graphics in the papers, since this allows us to produce a uniform look and maintain the quality of the finished journal. Within the graphicsFont should be: Arial – Regular – 10 pt.

 

Tables:

Please format them using the Table menu, and not Tabs and Spaces

- when using the tabular format please allot a new cell to each piece of data. 

- include the title of the table as well as the notes at the bottom of table inside the Table itself not in the body of the text.

- when comparing treatments do not give SE of each mean. SEM of means is more appropriate with the exact probability as given by the statistics program.

 

Statistics:

Please avoid statements such as "there were significant effects of level of PL on live weight gain". We need to know what was the effect. We can see it in the table if you put the exact P value. The use of P<0.05 or P< 0.01 goes back to days of hand calculators and F and T tables. Computers give us much more power and knowledge. We must use this opportunity.

 

References:

Citation

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

Negotiation research spans many disciplines (Thompson 1990).

This result was later contradicted by Becker and Seligman (1996).

This effect has been widely studied (Abbott 1991; Barakat et al. 1995; Kelso and Smith 1998; Medvec et al. 1993).

 

Reference list

The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Personal communications and unpublished works should only be entioned 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. Name, first letter of surname of the author and year of publication shoulds be in bold characters
