             5. Digital Images and Figures 

             5.1 Image files should be named as a number without space, special alphabets and saved as a TIFF (.tif). Do not save the files from Microsoft Power Point due to low resolution. Moreover, all panels should be in a single file. Line drawings should be of high resolution and high contrast. For color or greyscale photographs (halftones), use a minimum of 300 dpi (.TIFF or .JPG).

             5.2 Figures do not upload Excel files or images for tables. Use the table function of Microsoft Word.

             5.3 Image resolution should present as follow;

                   5.3.1 Photographic image and line art should be at a minimum of 600 dpi.

                   5.3.2 Only photographic image should be at a minimum of 300 dpi.

                   5.3.3 Only line art should be at a minimum of 1,000 dpi.         

            5.4 Black and white halftone artwork should be saved in the grayscale mode, and color artwork should be saved in the RGB mode to be displayed online. The RGB mode will switch to the CYMK mode for publication creating a slight change of color. Therefore, images and figures should be checked in the CYMK mode. If authors have color images and figures to be adopted, the authors have to pay for the additional cost.

             5.5 Every letter in the images and figures and description below should be written only in English. The term “Figure” should be followed by number typed in a bold style, flushed left. The images and figures should appear preceding their contents. Each page will have only one image and figure with description below.

             5.7 Figure legends, the figure title should be located as the first line. The symbols, nomenclature, abbreviations and units should match used in a figure and text. The figure legends should not be longer than about 200 words.

            6. Tables

                Tables with legends should be placed in articles as close as possible to where they are mentioned in the text. Names of tables and description should be written in only English. Do not upload Excel files for tables. Use the table function of Microsoft Word. Avoid vertical lines and unnecessary horizontal lines.

            7. Formulas

               Formulas should be run by the Equation Editor or Math Type in order to avoid inaccuracy.

             8. Graphs

               Graphs should be labeled on the ordinate and abscissa with scale of parameter. Simple solid or open symbols (▲, ∆, ■, ○) should be represented. Use boxes or heavy lines and avoid screen shading and light lines. The definitions of symbols appear in the figure legend.

             9. Approved database

                The data sets of science especially biotechnology must be deposited in an approved database (examples in below), any data must be include a specific access address in published paper.

 ñ DNA and protein sequences: GenBank, SWISS-PROT

 ñ Molecular structure data: Protein Data Bank, Macromolecular Structure Database, Electron Microscopy Data Bank, BioMag Res Bank

 ñ Microarray data: ArrayExpress, Gene Expression Omnibus

             10. Results

                  The research results should be presented clearly and right to the point with accompanying figures and tables. These figures and tables should be referred to in the content. Explanation must not repeat what is already given in the content.

              11. Discussion

                  Research discussion is aimed at persuading readers by comparing with other research studies and proposing possible solutions or useful suggestions for solving certain research outcomes, etc. Research results and discussion can be written in one section.

             12. References

                The References part should follow the Vancouver style, and only in English. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list.
