Universal Journals Publications ( are working for the Repid publications of peer–reviewed online Journals of full-length Research Papers, Review Articles, Case Studies, Short Communications and book reviews.

The primary objectives are to become the premier source of high quality research. Manuscripts are accepted on the understanding that the authors have obtained the necessary authority for publication. Manuscripts with multi-authors imply the consent of each of the authors. The publisher will presume that the corresponding author has specifically obtained the approval of all other co-authors to submit the article. Submission of an article to journal is understood to imply that it has not been either published or not being considered for publication elsewhere.
Manuscripts will be reviewed by members of the editorial board and reviewers, whose opinions will form the basis for the final decision by the editor.

Manuscript Length:

Research articles:

Research articles are considered for publication provided that the results of them significant portion of the research work is not published anywhere in any form (electronic or print). Research Papers should be around 12-15 pages.

Review articles:

Review articles should include the extensive data collections with illustrative tables and diagrams. It describes recent advances in Pharmaceutical/Medical/Dental/Engineering sciences. Authors should include abstract for the review articles also. They should be around 15-25 pages.

Short Communications:

The journal publishes exciting findings, preliminary data or studies that did not yield enough information to make a full paper as short communications. These have the same format requirements as full papers but are only up to 10 pages in length in total. Short Communications should not have subtitles such as Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion- all these have to be merged into the running text. Short Communications preferably should have only 3-4 illustrations.

Introduction should be brief, indicates the state of the art of the topic, background information and significance of the study by considering the relevant literature.


The research design, subjects, materials used, and statistical methods should be included. This part should be as clear as possible to enable other scientists to repeat the research presented.


In this part, the same data or information given in a table must not be repeated in a figure, or vice versa. It is not acceptable to repeat extensively the numerals from tables into text and give lengthy and unnecessary explanations of the Tables and Figures. This part must be written with reference to the tables and figures and by considering information from the literature.

A conclusion might elaborate on the importance of the work or suggest applications and extensions.


It should be placed in a separate section before the references. Authors should acknowledge the sources of financial and material support and also acknowledge the names of persons whose contribution to the study, to generate the research results.


References should be listed numerically, corresponding to their order of appearance in the text, in accordance with the Vancouver System. Identify references in text, tables, and legends by Arabic numerals in superscript. References cited only in tables or figure legends should be numbered in accordance with the sequence established by the first identification in the text of the particular table or figure.
