Submission of a chapter:
In order to reduce delays, authors should assure that the level, length and format of a chapter submission should meet the OMICS Groupís requirements at the submission and each revision stage. Submitted chapter should have a summary, separate from the main text, of up to 300 words. This summary does not include references, numbers, abbreviations or measurements unless essential. The summary should provide a basic-level introduction to the field; a brief account of the background and principle of the work; a statement of the main conclusions; and 2-3 sentences that place the main findings into a general context. The text may contain a few short subheadings of no more than 40 characters each.
Cover Letter: Include current telephone and fax numbers, as well as postal and E-mail address of corresponding author to maintain communication.
Chapter Preparation Guidelines
Chapters contain the actual content of the book, i.e., text, figures, tables, and references. Chapters can be grouped together in parts; subparts are not possible.
Decide the numbering style for the chapters and apply this style consistently to all chapters: consecutively numbered (monographs or textbooks) or unnumbered (contributed volumes).
If an introduction to the subject of the book (historical background, definitions, or methodology) is included, it should appear as the first chapter and thus be included in the chapter numbering. It contains references, figures, and tables, just as any other chapter.
Chapter title: The title should be limited to 25 words or less and should not contain abbreviations. The title should be a brief phrase describing the contents of the paper.
Author information: Complete names and affiliation of all authors, including contact details of corresponding author (Telephone, Fax and E-mail address).
For contributed volumes, please include each chapterís authorsí names, affiliations and E-mail addresses and telephone numbers after the chapter title
Abstract: The abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, briefly present the topic, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and conclusions. The abstract should summarize the chapter content in 300 words or less. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided. The preferable format should accommodate a description of the study background, methods, results and conclusion. Following the abstract, a list of keywords (3-10) and abbreviations should be included.
The abstract will appear online at OMICS Publishing Group database and will be available with unrestricted access to facilitate online searching, using, e.g., Google, and allow unregistered users to read the abstract as a teaser for the complete chapter
If no abstract is submitted, we will use the first paragraph of the chapter instead.
Please check with the editor of your book or with the publishing editor to see if keywords are required
Headings and Heading Numbering
Heading levels should be clearly identified and each level should be uniquely and consistently formatted and/or numbered.
Use the decimal system of numbering if your headings are numbered. Never skip a heading level. The only exceptions are run-in headings which can be used at any hierarchical level.
In cross-references, for hyperlink purposes, refer to the chapter or section number (e.g., see Chap. 4 or see Sect. 4.2.3).
Terminology, Units and Abbreviations
Technical terms and abbreviations should be defined for the first time they appear in the text. Please always use internationally accepted SI units for signs and symbols for units.
Numerals should follow the British/American method of decimal points to indicate decimals and commas to separate thousands.
If the manuscript contains a large number of terms and abbreviations, a list of abbreviations or a glossary is advised.
Formal Style and Text Formatting
Manuscripts will be checked by a copy editor for formal style. OMICS follows international standards with regard to the presentation of the content.
Italics should be used for emphasized words or phrases in running text, but do not format entire paragraphs in italics. In addition, use italics for species and genus names, mathematical/physical variables, and prefixes in chemical compounds. Bold formatting should only be used for run-in headings and small capitals for indicating optical activity (d- and l-dopa). Sans serif (e.g., Arial) and non-proportional font (e.g., Courier) can be used to distinguish the literal text of computer programs from running text. Boxes: Do not set entire pages as boxes, because this affects online readability.
Introduction: The introduction should set the tone of the paper by providing a clear statement of the study, the relevant literature on the study subject and the proposed approach or solution. The introduction should be general enough to attract a readerís attention from a broad range of scientific disciplines.
Materials and Methods: This section should provide a complete overview of the design of the study. Detailed descriptions of materials or participants, comparisons, interventions and types of analysis should be mentioned. However, only new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Capitalize trade names and include the manufacturer's name and address.
Results: The results section should provide complete details of the experiment that are required to support the conclusion of the study. The results should be written in the past tense when describing findings in the authors' experiments. Previously published findings should be written in the present tense. Results and discussion may be combined or in a separate section. Speculation and detailed interpretation of data should not be included in the results but should be put into the discussion section.
Acknowledgement: This section includes acknowledgment of people, grant details, funds, etc.
Note: If an author fails to submit his/her work as per the above instructions, they are pleased to maintain clear titles namely headings and subheadings.
Always use footnotes instead of endnotes and never use footnotes instead of a reference list. Footnotes should not consist of a reference citation. Footnotes should not contain figures, tables and/or the bibliographic details of a reference
Only published or accepted chapters/papers should be included in the reference list. Meetings abstracts, conference talks, or papers that have been submitted but not yet accepted should not be cited. All personal communications should be supported by a letter from the relevant authors.
OMICS uses the numbered citation (citation-sequence) method. References are listed and numbered in the order that they appear in the text. In the text, citations should be indicated by the reference number in brackets. Multiple citations within a single set of brackets should be separated by commas. When there are three or more sequential citations, they should be given as a range. Example: "... now enable biologists to simultaneously monitor the expression of thousands of genes in a single experiment [1,5-7,28]". Make sure the parts of the chapter are in the correct order for the relevant e-book before ordering the citations. Figure captions and tables should be at the end of the chapter.
Authors are requested to provide at least one online link for each reference as following (preferably PubMed). Because all references will be linked electronically as much as possible to the papers they cite, proper formatting of the references is crucial. Please use the following style for the reference list:
- Laemmli UK (1970) Cleavage of structural proteins during the assembly of the head of bacteriophage T4. Nature 227: 680-685.
- Brusic V, Rudy G, Honeyman G, Hammer J, Harrison L (1998) Prediction of MHC class II- binding peptides using an evolutionary algorithm and artificial neural network. Bioinformatics 14: 121-130.
- Doroshenko V, Airich L, Vitushkina M, Kolokolova A, Livshits V, et al. (2007) YddG from Escherichia coli promotes export of aromatic amino acids. FEMS Microbiol Lett 275: 312-318.
Note: Please list the first five authors and then add "et al." if there are additional authors.
These should be used at a minimum and designed as simple as possible. We strongly encourage authors to submit tables as .doc format. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. Preferably, the details of the methods used in the experiments should be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph form or repeated in the text. Cells can be copied from an Excel spreadsheet and pasted into a word document, but Excel files should not be embedded as objects.
Note: If the submission is in PDF format, the author is requested to retain the same in .doc format in order to aid in completion of process successfully.
The preferred file formats for photographic images are .doc, TIFF and JPEG. If you have created images with separate components on different layers, please send us the Photoshop files.
All images must be at or above intended display size, with the following image resolutions: Line Art 800 dpi, Combination (Line Art + Halftone) 600 dpi, Halftone 300 dpi. See the Image quality specifications chart for details. Image files also must be cropped as close to the actual image as possible.
Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the chapter. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.
Figure legends: These should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet
Tables and Equations as Graphics:
If equations cannot be encoded in MathML, submit them in TIFF or EPS format as discrete files (i.e., a file containing only the data for one equation). Only when tables cannot be encoded as XML/SGML can they be submitted as graphics. If this method is used, it is critical that the font size in all equations and tables is consistent and legible throughout all submissions.
Suggested Equation Extraction Method
Discrete items of the Supplementary Information (for example, figures, tables) referred at an appropriate point in the main text of the chapter.
Summary diagram/figure included as part of the Supplementary Information (optional).
All Supplementary Information is supplied as a single PDF file, where possible. File size within the permitted limits for Supplementary Information. Images should be a maximum size of 640 x 480 pixels (9 x 6.8 inches at 72 pixels per inch).
Index (if applicable)
If an index is desired, please submit the index entries with the manuscript.
Proofs and Reprints
Electronic proofs will be sent as an e-mail attachment to the corresponding author as a PDF file. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the chapter.
