  • PREPARATION OF MANUSCRIPTS 
    Manuscripts must be in "Times New Roman" font-size 10, with double spacing. Please arrange the manuscript as follows: Title page, abstract, introduction, methods, results and discussion, and references, tables, figure captions and figures. Number all pages consecutively at the bottom, beginning with the title page. Figures and tables must be cited in the manuscript.
    It is important that the file be saved in the native format of the word processor used. The text should be in single-column format. Keep the layout of the text as simple as possible. Most formatting codes will be removed and replaced on processing the article. In particular, do not use the word processor's options to justify text or to hyphenate words. However, do use bold face, italics, subscripts, superscripts etc. When preparing tables, if you are using a table grid, use only one grid for each individual table and not a grid for each row. If no grid is used, use tabs and not spaces to align columns. The electronic text should be prepared in a way very similar to that of conventional manuscripts. Note that source files of figures, tables and text graphics will be required whether or not you embed your figures in the text. See also the section on electronic artwork. To avoid unnecessary errors, you are strongly advised to use the 'spell-check' and 'grammar-check' functions of your word processor. Lines must be numbered consecutively throughout the manuscript and all pages must be numbered.
     
    MANUSCRIPT STRUCTURE
    Subdivision - Numbered Sections: Divide the article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering for internal cross-referencing also: do not just refer to 'the text'. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.
    Introduction: State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
    Material and methods: Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.
    Results and discussion: Results should be clear and concise. Discussions should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
    Conclusion: The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.
    Appendices: If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on. Similarly for tables and figures: Table A.1; Fig. A.1, etc.
     
    Title page information
    • Title: Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible. A short running title not exceeding 40 characters must be provided.
    • Author names and affiliations: Where the family name may be ambiguous (e.g., a double name), please indicate this clearly. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name. The journal reserves the right to ask for the contribution of each author to an article.
    • Corresponding author: Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that telephone and fax numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address. Contact details must be kept up to date by the corresponding author.
    • Present/permanent address: If an author has moved since the work described in the article was done, or was visiting at the time, a 'Present address' (or 'Permanent address') may be indicated as a footnote to that author's name. The address at which the author actually did the work must be retained as the main, affiliation address. Superscript Arabic numerals are used for such footnotes.
     
    Abstract: A concise and structured abstract is required under the headings like objectives, methods, results, and conclusions. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References and non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. The abstract should not exceed 250 words.
    Graphical abstract: A Graphical abstract is required for this journal. It should summarize the contents of the article in a concise, pictorial form designed to capture the attention of a wide readership online. Authors must provide images that clearly represent the work described in the article. Graphical abstracts should be submitted as a separate file in the online submission system. Image size: Images should be clear enough and of appropriate size (5 inch × 7 inch or larger) for better reproduction. If scanned, they should be scanned at minimum of 300 dpi. Color images must be CMYK. Line art drawing must have a minimum resolution of 1200 dpi. Permission to reproduce any borrowed image must be obtained from the author and the publisher. Preferred file types: TIFF, and JPEG files.
    Keywords: A maximum of 5 keywords are required after the abstract.
    Acknowledgements: Acknowledgements should be given in a separate section at the end of the article before the references.

Title: Identification of theanine, theobromine, and caffeine from the native Assam variety of Camellia sinensis (green tea)
Section: Research Article
Category: Drugs from Plants
Country: India
View Article

Camellia sinensis (green tea) is commonly consumed as beverage, which has several health benefits. It is widely grown in various climatic regions and its chemical composition is quite complex, but varies based on its geographical conditions seasonal variations and other environmental factors. It consists of numerous bioactive compounds, such as polyphenols, amino acids, and methylxanthines. Still, many more has to be explored. Moreover, none of the studies from India reported the presence of theanine, theobromine, and caffeine in native (Assam) variety of green tea which has clinical importance. Thus, the present study is conducted to assess the above-mentioned molecules in native (Assam) green tea. Green tea leaves from Assam were used to prepare aqueous and ethanolic extracts by Soxhlet apparatus. Later, we compared and analyzed the chemical composition of these extracts by liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry spectral analysis. We assessed the chemical composition between the leaf extracts and identified an important amino acid theanine (C7 H14 N2 O3, mass 174.2 m/z), and methylxanthines like theobromine (C7 H8 N4 O2, mass 180.16 m/z), and caffeine (C8 H10 N4 O2 , mass 194.19 m/z) in both the extracts. Thus, we conclude the presence of theobromine, theanine, and caffeine in both the leaf extracts. Moreover, the present study also suggests that minimal intake of green tea has beneficial effects, whereas maximum intake has side effects.

Title: Risk factors and protective factors of mental health during coronavirus disease-19 outbreak and lockdown in adult Indian population – A cross-sectional study
Section: Research Article
Category: Pharmacology
Country: India
View Article

Background: The novel coronavirus (CoV) has derailed the entire world and various steps have been taken by the health authorities to tackle this pandemic. Nationwide lockdown has been imposed to control the spread of CoVs disease (COVID-19) outbreak in India, which could have psychological impact on the population. Aim: Our study aims to study the effect of the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown on mental health status of adult Indian population along with identifying the high-risk groups. Methodology: An online survey was conducted during the 3rd phase of lockdown gathering details about sociodemographic variables, practice of precautionary measures, awareness and concerns regarding COVID-19, and mental health status of the participants through Depression Anxiety Stress Scale-21 questionnaire from 873 adults. Results: The prevalence of depression, anxiety, and stress was 18.56%, 25.66%, and 21.99%, respectively, including higher number of participants with mild depression (15.1%) and stress (14.5%) and moderate anxiety (16.3%). Female gender, age <25 years, unemployment, self-business, employed in private sector, lack of formal education, larger household size, and parenthood (>2 kids) were associated with increased likelihood of negative mental health. Confidence in physician’s ability to diagnose COVID-19 infection, decreased self-perceived likelihood of contracting COVID-19, lesser frequency of checking for information on COVID-19, and satisfaction of information received were protective against negative mental health. Conclusion: This landmark study identified the protective and risk factors of mental health during COVID-19 pandemic, to help authorities and mental health workers to strategize and deliver interventional methods to maintain psychosocial well- being of the population.
