Reviews are brief summaries of developments in fast moving areas. They must be based on published articles, and may address any area related to the scope of the journal
Research Articles should describe new findings, and experimental procedures should be given in detail for others to verify the work. The length of a full paper should be the minimum required to describe and interpret the work clearly. A concise presentation is encouraged. Limits 5-6 journal pages/ max 3000 words,
Short Communications is for a concise but independent report or giving details of new models or hypotheses, innovative methods, techniques or apparatus. The style of main sections need not conform to that of full-length papers. Short communications are 2 to 4 pages (about 6 to 12 manuscript pages) in length.
Case Reports Novel/interesting/extremely rare cases or rare presentations can be reported. Cases with clinical significance or implications will be given priority. Up to 3 - 4 Pages.
Letters Should reflect short, decisive observation. Up to 500-1000 words and five references

Important point for reviewers
To be selected as a reviewer, you must have published articles in peer-reviewed journals. The experience of publishing provides a reviewer with the basis for preparing a thorough, objective review.
It is critical to be a regular reader of the five to six empirical journals that are most central to the area or journal for which you would like to review. Current knowledge of recently published research provides a reviewer with the knowledge base to evaluate a new submission within the context of existing research.
To select the appropriate reviewers for each manuscript, the editor needs detailed information. Please include your vita with your letter. In your letter, please identify that for which Science Research Library Journal(s) you are interested in and describe your area of expertise. Be as specific as possible.
Reviewing a manuscript takes time (2-6 hours per manuscript reviewed). If you are selected to review a manuscript, be prepared to invest the necessary time to evaluate the manuscript thoroughly.
Reviewer should submit the report within 7 days after receiving the manuscript.
