Submission of manuscript: All manuscripts submitted for publication to the JSHO should include the following :
1. Covering Letter : One of the authors could be identified as the corresponding author of the paper, who would be responsible for the correspondence with the Editor - in - Chief.
2. Manuscript : Manuscripts can be submitted in a CD (Compact Disc) in MS Word (in addition to one hard copy). Typescript should be sent to the Editor - in - Chief on one side of a good quality bond paper (21.0 x 29.7cms). Pages should be numbered consecutively and the contents arranged in the following order - Title; Name(s) of the author(s); Department(s) and Institution(s); Abstract; Key words; Introduction; Material & Methods; Results; Discussion; Acknowledgment; and reference. Abstract, Tables and Legends for Figures should be typed on separate sheets and not in continuation of the main text.
Title : Title of the article should be short, continuous (broken or hyphenated titles are not acceptable) and yet sufficiently descriptive and informative so as to be useful in indexing and information retrieval.
Abstract : Abstract should be brief (250 words) and indicate the scope and significant results of the paper. It should only highlight the principal findings and conclusions so that it can be used by abstracting services without modification. Conclusions and recommendations not found in the text of the articles should not be inserted in the Abstract. A set of suitable key words arranged alphabetically may be provided.
Introduction : Introduction should be brief and state precisely the scope of the paper. Review of the literature should be restricted to reasons for undertaking the present study and provide only the most essential background. This should cover the study area, study population, sample size, sampling techniques and the data collection techniques and tools, data analyses and statistical analyses.
Results : Only such data are essential for understanding the discussion and main conclusions emerging from the study should be included. The data should be arranged in unified and coherent sequence. Data presented in tables and figures should not be repeated in the text. Only important observations need to be emphasized or summarized.
Discussion : The discussion should deal with the interpretation of results without repeating information already presented under Results. It should relate new findings to the known ones and include logical deductions. It should also mention any weaknesses of the study. The conclusions can be linked with the goals of the study. All hypotheses should, if warranted, clearly be identified as such; recommendations may be included as part of Discussion, only when considered absolutely necessary and relevant.
Acknowledgment : Acknowledgment should be brief and made for specific/technical assistance and financial support only and not for providing routine departmental facilities and encouragement or for help in the preparation of the manuscripts (including typing or secretarial assistance)
References : The total number of References should normally be restricted to a maximum of 30.
References to literature cited should be numbered consecutively and placed at the end of the manuscript. In the text they should be indicated above the line (superior). As far as possible mentioning name of author(s) under references should be avoided in text. These should be written in Vancouver style.
