Author Guidlines

To submit a new manuscript authors should use the online submission system. Authors may submit their manuscript via online tracking system through or via e-mail to [email protected] or [email protected] or [email protected]


International Journal of Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine publishes original research articles of outstanding medical importance. We will 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.

This top best scholarly journal is using Editorial Manager- System for online manuscript submission, review and tracking. Editorial board members of the Nanotechnology: Open Access or outside experts review manuscripts; at least two independent reviewer’s approval followed by the editor is required for the acceptance of any citable manuscript.

Article Processing Charges

Publishing with open access is not without costs. A journal defrays those costs from article-processing charges (APCs) payable by authors once the manuscript has been accepted for publication. We do 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 Type Article Processing Charges
Research Article USD 1000
Review Article USD 1000
Case Report and other articles USD 1000


The basic article processing fee or manuscript handling cost is as per the price mentioned above on the other hand it may vary based on the extensive editing, colored effects, complex equations, extra elongation of no. of pages of the article, etc.

Types of contribution

1. Original Article papers (Full Paper and Short Communication)

2. Review articles

Article types accepted are: Original Article (Full paper or Short Communication), Review Article.

Page limits are as follows: Full paper no limit; Short Communication 7 page plus not more than 4 figures/tables in total. If the Editor feels that a paper submitted as a Full Paper would be more appropriate for the Short Communications section, then a shortened version will be requested. References should be limited to 50 for Full Papers and Reviews, 20 for Short Communication. An abstract not exceeding one paragraph of 250 words should appear at the beginning of each Article. The recommended page limit for Review Papers is 30 pages.

Submission of Manuscripts

Submission of an article is understood to imply that the article is original and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. Submission also implies that all authors have approved the paper for publication and are in agreement with its content. Upon acceptance of the article by the journal, the author(s) will be asked to transfer the copyright of the article to the publisher. This transfer will ensure the widest possible dissemination of information.

Preparation of Manuscripts

1. Manuscripts should be written in English.

2. Manuscripts should be prepared with numbered lines, with wide margins and single space throughout, i.e. also for abstracts, footnotes and references. Every page of the manuscript, including the title page, references, tables, etc. should be numbered. However, in the text no reference should be made to page numbers; if necessary, one may refer to sections. Underline words that should be in italics, and do not underline any other words. Avoid excessive use of italics to emphasize part of the text.

3. Manuscripts in general should be organized in the following order:

Title (should be clear, descriptive and not too long)
Name(s) of author(s)
Complete postal address (es) of affiliations
Full telephone, Fax number and E-mail of the corresponding author
Present address (es) of author(s) if applicable
Complete correspondence address to which the proofs should be sent
Keywords (indexing terms), normally 3-6 items
Material studied, area descriptions, methods, techniques
Results and Discussion
Acknowledgements and any additional information concerning research grants, etc.
Figure captions

4. In typing the manuscript, titles and subtitles should not be run within the text. They should be typed on a separate line, without indentation. Use lower-case letter type.

5. Units and abbreviations

6. In principle SI units should be used except where they conflict with current practice or are confusing. Other equivalent units may be given in parentheses.

7. Units and their abbreviations should be those approved by ISO (International Standard 1000:92

8. SI units and recommendations for the use of their multiples and of certain other units. Abbreviate units of measure only when used with numerals.

9. If a special instruction to the copy editor or typesetter is written on the copy it should be encircled. The typesetter will then know that the enclosed matter is not to be set in type. When a typewritten character may have more than one meaning (e.g. the lower case letter l may be confused with the numeral 1), a note should be inserted in a circle in the margin to make the meaning clear to the typesetter. If Greek letters or uncommon symbols are used in the manuscript, they should be written very clearly, and if necessary a note such as "Greek lower-case chi" should be put in the margin and encircled.


The abstract should be clear, descriptive and not longer than 250 words.


1. Authors should take notice of the limitations set by the size and lay-out of the journal. Large tables should be avoided. Reversing columns and rows will often reduce the dimensions of a table.

2. If many data are to be presented, an attempt should be made to divide them over two or more tables.

3. Drawn tables, from which prints need to be made, should not be folded.

4. Tables should be numbered according to their sequence in the text. The text should include references to all tables.

5. Each table should be typewritten on a separate page of the manuscript. Tables should never be included in the text.

6. Each table should have a brief and self-explanatory title.

7. Column headings should be brief, but sufficiently explanatory. Standard abbreviations of units of measurement should be added between parentheses.

8. Vertical lines should not be used to separate columns. Leave some extra space between the columns instead.

9. Any explanation essential to the understanding of the table should be given as a footnote at the bottom of the table.

Electronic Illustrations

1. Submitting your artwork in an electronic format helps us to produce your work to the best possible standards, ensuring accuracy, clarity and a high level of detail.

2. Always supply high-quality printouts of your artwork, in case conversion of the electronic artwork is problematic.

3. Make sure you use uniform lettering and sizing of your original artwork.

4. Save text in illustrations as "graphics" or enclose the font.

5. Only use the following fonts in your illustrations: Arial, Courier, Helvetica, Times, Symbol.

6. Number the illustrations according to their sequence in the text.

7. Use a logical naming convention for your artwork files, and supply a separate listing of the files and the software used.

8. Provide all illustrations as separate files.

9. Provide captions to illustrations separately.

10. Produce images near to the desired size of the printed version.


Regardless of the application used, when your electronic artwork is finalized, please "save as" or convert the images to one of the following formats (Note the resolution requirements for line drawings, halftones, and line/halftone combinations given below.):

JPEG or PNG: min. 300 dpi

EPS: Vector drawings. Embed the font or save the text as "graphics".

TIFF: Color or grayscale photographs (halftones): always use a minimum of 300 dpi

TIFF: Bitmapped line drawings: use a minimum of 1000 dpi.

TIFF: Combinations bitmapped line/half-ton (color or grayscale): a minimum of 500 dpi is required.

DOC, XLS or PPT: If your electronic artwork is created in any of these Microsoft Office applications please supply "as is".

Please do not

Supply embedded graphics in your word processor (spreadsheet, presentation) document.

Supply files that are optimized for screen use (like GIF, BMP, PICT, WPG); the resolution is too low

Supply files that are too low in resolution

Submit graphics that are disproportionately large for the content.

Authors please note: If you submit artwork that does not satisfy these criteria, publication may be delayed.

Provide all illustrations as high-quality printouts, suitable for reproduction (which may include reduction) without retouching. Number illustrations consecutively in the order in which they are referred to in the text. Clearly mark all illustrations on the back (or - in case of line drawings - on the lower front side) with the figure number and the author's name and, in cases of ambiguity, the correct orientation. Mark the appropriate position of a figure in the article.


1. All publications cited in the text should be presented in a list of references following the text of the manuscript. The manuscript should be carefully checked to ensure that the spelling of author's names and dates are exactly the same in the text as in the reference list.

2. In the text refer to the author's name (without initial) and year of publication, followed if necessary by a short reference to appropriate pages. Examples: "Since Peterson (1988) has shown that..." "This is in agreement with results obtained later (Kramer, 1989, pp. 12-16)".

3. If reference is made in the text to a publication written by more than two authors the name of the first author should be used followed by "et al.". This indication, however, should never be used in the list of references. In this list names of first author and co-authors should be mentioned.

4. References cited together in the text should be arranged chronologically. The list of references should be arranged alphabetically on authors' names, and chronologically per author. If an author's name in the list is also mentioned with co-authors the following order should be used: publications of the single author, arranged according to publication dates - publications of the same author with one co-author - publications of the author with more than one co-author. Publications by the same author(s) in the same year should be listed as 1994a, 1994b, etc.

5. Use the following system for arranging your references:

a. For periodicals
b. For edited symposia, special issues, etc. published in a periodical
c. For books
d. For multi-author books
