Journal of Biological Regulators & Homeostatic Agents
every three months. The journal publishes original papers describing
research in the fields of experimental and clinical medicine,
molecular biology, biochemistry, regulatory molecules, cellular
immunology and pharmacology.
Only articles written
in English will be published. All articles will be subject to peer
review and the scientific standard is the only criterion for
accepting a manuscript for publication. The style should be clear
and concise. Excessive use of jargon or unusual abbreviations should
be avoided. Contributors must send an electronic copy of the text,
tables and figures to
firstname.lastname@example.org, and it is essential that they retain a copy of
the original manuscript as the Editor does not accept responsibility
for loss of papers submitted. Papers are accepted on the
understanding that no substantial part has been, or will be
published elsewhere, and once they have been accepted they remain
the copyright of the journal.
Preparation of the text:
Manuscripts should be in a Word file with double spacing and 30 mm
margins all around. The first page should bear the title of the
paper, last name(s) and initial(s) of the author(s) with their
affiliation(s) and the postal address, tel. and fax numbers and
e-mail address of the corresponding author. For indexing purposes a
small number of key words should be supplied.
Generally, papers should be divided into the following parts and in
the order indicated: (1) Summary: about 5% of the length of
the paper; (2) Introduction: containing the reason for doing
the work; (3) Materials and Methods: sufficient information
must be included to permit repetition of the experimental work; (4)
Results: these should be given concisely together with tables
and figures that have clear legends; (5) Discussion: the
presentation of results should be separate from a discussion of
their significance; the section should not repeat Results;
(6) Acknowledgements if any; (7) References: these
should be cited in the text by a number in parentheses and listed at
the end of the paper in numerical order. Note the following style
for journal and book citations:

numerals for the tables and Arabic numerals for figures. Tables
should have a short title. Figures can be sent on a separate PDF or
