Manuscript submission check list





 The Indian Journal of Medical Research (IJMR) is a biomedical journal with international circulation. It publishes original communications of biomedical research that advances or illuminates medical science or that educates the journal readers. It is issued monthly, in two volumes per year.

 Manuscripts dealing with clinical aspects will be considered for publication, provided they contain results of original investigations. Articles need to be of general interest – e.g., they cross the boundaries of specialities or are of sufficient novelty and importance that the journal’s readers, whatever their speciality, should be made aware of the findings. Research papers reporting original research, review articles, correspondence on published articles will also be considered. Papers of routine nature which are merely records of interesting cases as also those dealing with modifications of routine methodology will not be encouraged. Further, serialization of articles by the same author(s) into various parts (1,2,3 etc.) is strongly discouraged. In such cases the authors are advised to submit independent papers with self-sufficient titles and text.

 The IJMR strongly discourages duplication/reduplication of data already published in other journals (even when certain cosmetic changes/additions are made). If and when duplication is detected after publishing in IJMR, the journal will be forced to ‘retract’ such articles. Articles based on work carried out in private nursing homes and other non-recognized hospitals/research institutes will be discouraged.

 All papers submitted to IJMR are subject to peer review process. All accepted papers will be suitably edited before publication.




 All manuscripts submitted for publication to the IJMR should include the following:



 A covering letter which could explain why the paper should be published in the IJMR, rather than a specialist journal. One of the authors could be identified as the corresponding author of the paper, who would be responsible for the contents of the paper as also answer.




 Manuscripts can be submitted by e-mail and also  in a CD in MS Word (in addition to the hard copies). Typescripts in triplicate should be sent to the Editor, The Indian Journal of Medical Research, Indian Council of Medical Research, V. Ramalingaswami Bhawan, Ansari Nagar, New Delhi-110029 (India).

  Authors are advised to see a recent issue of the journal to get familiar with the format adopted on various elements of a paper.

 Manuscripts should be presented in as concise a form as possible, typewritten in double space on one side of a good quality bond paper (21.0 x 29.7 cms ). Pages should be numbered consecutively and the contents arranged in the following order:- Title; Name(s) of the author(s); Department(s) and Institution(s); Abstract; Key words; Introduction; Material & Methods; Results; Discussion; Acknowledgement; and References. Abstract, Tables and legends for Figures should be typed on separate sheets and not in continuation of the main text.

In manuscripts submitted by e-mail the text should be typed in MS-Word and Figures/Photographs in JPEG or GIF format.


Title of the article should be short, continuous (broken or hyphenated titles are not acceptable) and yet sufficiently descriptive and informative so as to be useful in indexing and information retrieval. A short running title not exceeding 6-7 words may also be provided.


All manuscripts should have a structured abstract (of about 250 words) with subheadings  of background & objectives, methods, results ,interpretation and conclusions. Abstract should be brief and indicate the scope and significant results of the paper. It should only highlight the principal findings and conclusions so that it can be used by abstracting services without modification. Conclusions and recommendations not found in the text of the articles should not be inserted in the Abstract. A set of suitable key words arranged alphabetically may be provided.


Introduction should be brief and state precisely the scope of the paper. Review of the literature should be restricted to reasons for undertaking the present study and provide only the most essential background.

Material & Methods

The nomenclature, the source of material and equipment used, with the manufacturers details in parenthesis, should be clearly mentioned. The procedures adopted should be explicitly stated to enable other workers to reproduce the results, if necessary. New methods may be described in sufficient detail and indicating their limitations. Established methods can be just mentioned with authentic references and significant deviations, if any given, with reasons for adopting them. While reporting experiments on human subjects and animals, it should be clearly mentioned that procedures followed are in acordance with the ethical standards laid down by the national bodies or organizations of the particular country. For example, for research carried out in India on human subjects, the ICMR’s Ethical guidelines for biomedical research on human subjects  (2000) should be adhered  to. Similarly, for experiments on laboratory animals the guidelines of the Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision of Experiments on Animals (CPCSEA) should be followed. Adequate information should be provided on the care and use of laboratory animals, source of animals, strain, age, sex, housing and nutrition etc. Whenever needed, appropriate certification should be provided at the time of submission of the manuscripts. The drugs and chemicals used should be precisely identified, including generic name(s), dosage(s) and route(s) of administration.

The statistical analysis done and statistical significance of the findings when appropriate, should be mentioned. Unless absolutely necessary for a clear understanding of the article, detailed description of statistical treatment may be avoided. Articles based heavily on statistical considerations, however, need to give details particularly when new or uncommon methods are employed. Standard and routine statistical methods employed need to give only authentic references.


Only such data as are essential for understanding the discussion and main conclusions emerging from the study should be included. The data should be arranged in unified and coherent sequence so that the report develops clearly and logically. Data presented in tables and figures should not be repeated in the text. Only important observations need to be emphasized or summarised. The same data should not be presented both in tabular and graphic forms. Interpretation of the data should be taken up only under the Discussion and not under Results.


The discussion should deal with the interpretation of results without repeating information already presented under Results. It should relate new findings to the known ones and include logical deductions. It should also mention any weaknesses of the study.

The conclusions can be linked with the goals of the study but unqualified statements and conclusions not completely supported by the data should be avoided. Claiming of priority on work that is ongoing should also be avoided. All hypotheses should, if warranted, clearly be identified as such; recommendations may be included as part of the Discussion, only when considered absolutely necessary and relevant.


Acknowledgment should be brief and made for specific scientific/technical assistance and financial support only and not for providing routine departmental facilities and encouragement or for help in the preparation of the manuscripts (including typing or secretarial assistance).


The total number of References should normally be restricted to a maximum of 30.

References to literature cited should be numbered consecutively and placed at the end of the manuscript. In the text they should be indicated above the line (superior). As far as possible mentioning names of author(s) under references should be avoided in text.

Articles in Journals: The titles of the journals should be abbreviated according to the style used by the Index Medicus. The list of journals indexed, published annually, in the January issue of the Index Medicus may be consulted.

Inclusion of structural formule in Tables should be avoided. Also, Tables should not be submitted as photographs.


Three sets of illustrations (one set original and two copies) should be submitted, either as hard copies or electronically as TIFF file, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals.

Line drawings should be made on good quality tracing paper of Bristol board. Letters, numbers and symbols should be clear in the figures and of sufficient size, so that when reduced, they could be accommodated in single column (8.5 cm) or double column (17.0 x 21.0 cm) without loss in clarity. Titles and explanation of symbols in the legends for illustrations, should be typed on separate pages.

Photographs, to be submitted in duplicate, should be unmounted and numbered consecutively. The title of the paper and authors name(s) and `Top' indicated with an arrow should be pencilled on the back of the photographs. The pictures should be good quality prints on glossy paper showing sufficient total contrast. Their sizes should conform to single (8.5 x 21.0 cm) or double (17.0 x 21.0 cm) column sizes. All the illustrations must be protected by thick card board packing against damages during transit.

Photomicrographs should have internal scale markers regarding details of magnification to facilitate reduction in size in final print. Symbols, arrows and letters used in the photomicrographs should contrast with the background. Otherwise, the same may be indicated on the copies only which will be transferred onto the originals by the Editorial Office at the time of publication.

All published material should be acknowledged and copyright material should be submitted along with the written permission of the copyright holder.

Colour illustrations are also acceptable.

 All authors are encouraged to specify their individual contributions at the bottom of the title page or on a separate page. The IJMR will not publish an item unless it has the signatures of all the authors. Participation solely in the acquisition of funding or the collection of data does not justify authorship. General supervision of the research group is also not sufficient for authorship. Any part of an article critical to its main conclusions must be the responsibility of at least one author.




4. UNDERTAKING BY AUTHOR(S)  Downloadable form

It is necessary that all the authors give an undertaking (in the format specified by the journal) indicating their consent to be co-authors in the sequence indicated on the title page. Each author should give his or her names as well as the address and appointment current at the time the work was done, plus a current address for correspondence including telephone and fax numbers and email address. A senior author may sign the Undertaking by Authors for a junior author who has left the institution and whose whereabouts are not known and take the responsibility.

 A paper with corporate (collective) authorship must specify the key persons responsible for the article; others contributing to the work should be recognized separately.





 Author(s) will be asked to sign a transfer of copyright agreement, which recognizes the common interest that both journal and author(s) have in the protection of copyright. It will also allow us to tackle copyright infringements ourselves without having to go back to authors each time.




 Authors of accepted articles are supplied 2 sets of printer’s proofs either by post or through e-mail. Corrections on the proof should be restricted to printer’s errors only and no substantial additions/deletions should be made. No change in the names of the authors (by way of additions and deletions) is permissible at the proof stage. If there are valid reasons for such a change, after acceptance of a paper, the permission of the Editor must be sought. Fifty reprints are supplied gratis for published papers.

 Proof reading marks may be obtained  on request from the Editorial Office.
