Author Guidelines

Please read the following instructions carefully. If you have any questions, please contact the Managing Editor at [email protected]

Policy

Der Pharmacia Sinica consider manuscripts of any length. We encourage the submission of both substantial full-length bodies of work and shorter manuscripts that report novel findings that might be based on a more limited range of experiments.

The writing style should be concise and accessible, avoiding jargon so that the paper is understandable for readers outside a specialty or those whose first language is not English. Editors will make suggestions for how to achieve this, as well as suggestions for cuts or additions that could be made to the article to strengthen the argument. Our aim is to make the editorial process rigorous and consistent, but not intrusive or overbearing. Authors are encouraged to use their own voice and to decide how best to present their ideas, results, and conclusions. Although we encourage submissions from around the globe, we require that manuscripts be submitted in English. Authors who do not use English as a first language may contact us for additional information. As a step towards overcoming language barriers on acceptance of the paper, we encourage authors fluent in other languages to provide copies of their full articles or abstracts in other languages. We will publish these translations as supporting information and list them, together with other supporting information files, at the end of the article text.
 

Article Processing Charges
Publishing with open access is not without costs. Der Pharmacia Sinica defrays those costs from article-processing charges (APCs) payable by authors once the manuscript has been accepted for publication. Der Pharmacia Sinica does not have subscription charges for its research content, believing instead that immediate, world-wide, barrier-free, open access to the full text of research articles is in the best interests of the scientific community.

Manuscript Organization

Title page

1.1. Title : The title should be relatively short but informative. 
1.2. Name(s) of author(s): A list of all authors of the paper should be prepared. It will contain full first name, initial(s) for middle name(s) and full last name.
1.3. Name and address of workplace(s): Authors’ affiliations should be indicated in this section. 
1.4. Personal e-mail address(es): At least one e-mail address is needed. It will be used as the corresponding author’s email address in all contacts with the authors.

2. Abstract

An abstract must accompany every article. It should be a brief summary of the significant items of the main paper. It should be informative and not only present the general scope of the paper but also indicate the main results and conclusions. An abstract should not normally exceed 250 words.

3. Keywords

List of all keywords proposed by the authors, separated by commas. Up to 5 key terms can be selected. We would suggest avoid repeating the title.

4. Introduction

Present the subject of paper clearly, indicate the scope of the subject, and present the goals of paper, novelty of research work and finally the organization of paper.

5. Materials and Methods

Animals and chemicals should be described in the first two paragraphs. The permission from animal ethical committee should be mentioned. The source of chemicals and drugs may be given, if necessary. The basis of dosage calculation (free form or salt used) should be indicated. Sex, strain and approximate weight of animals should be given (e.g.: “Male Wistar rats; 100–230 g...?) and housing and feeding conditions briefly described. Dosage schedules need not be mentioned in “Materials and Methods? if easily seen from graphs or tables. The route of administration (po, iv, ip, icv), solvent etc. should be indicated. Newly introduced techniques should be described in detail to allow easy repetition. Any modification should be mentioned briefly, with proper references. Techniques which have been previously described should be mentioned in brief only, with proper references, unless they were published in sources that are not easily accessible.
Experimental Part: It should be written in sufficient detail to enable others to repeat the authors’ work. 
Computational Part: In theoretical papers, technical details such as the computational methods, and models applied or newly developed models should be presented in an appropriately named section. Sufficient detail should be provided to enable readers to reproduce the calculations.

6. Results and Discussion

It may be combined or kept separate and may be further divided into subsections. This section should not contain technical details. Abbreviations and acronyms should be used sparingly and consistently. Where they first appear in the text, they should be defined; authors may also explain large numbers of abbreviations and acronyms in a footnote on the first page.

7. Conclusion

It should be representing the summary of the important findings.

Acknowledgements
Information concerning research grant support should appear in a separate Acknowledgements section at the end of the paper, not in a footnote.

Tables
Authors should use tables only to achieve concise presentation or where the information cannot be given satisfactorily in other ways. Tables should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals and should be in the text itself at appropriate place not at the end or as separate attachment. Each table should have an explanatory caption which should be as concise as possible.

Figures
Authors may use line diagrams and photographs to illustrate these from their text. The figures should be clear, easy to read and of good quality. Styles and fonts should match those in the main body of the article. Lettering and lines should be of uniform density and the lines unbroken. Axis labels should be in bold face. Units should be placed next to variables in parentheses. All figures must be in the text itself appropriate place not at the end or as separate attachment..

8. References

The references should be cited in the text in large brackets not in superscript or subscript. A complete reference should comprise the following:
