Author Guidelines

Submission of article

We are currently focusing on publishing original research works, review papers, short communications only, authors may submit the articles only to submissions@jrsgis.com . Authors are advised to submit the articles only with the copyright form duly signed, scanned and attached; authors may download the copyright form here .

File type : Authors should submit the articles only in MS-word 2003 or 2007 format, no other format is accepted. If equations were used it should be converted by using MS Office equation editor and pasted as image at proper place. All equations should be grouped or may be prepared using equation editor software. Presently we are not able to accept formatted articles in LateX or other format, authors are informed to convert their articles only in MS word format. Please note that the file size should not be more than 10 MB size for submission through our submit forms.
No of Pages: No article should exceed more than 10-12 pages authors are informed that lengthening the paper will not only make the readers skip the content and hence authors are advised to write their full work within this page limit
File size : Maximum size permitted is less than 10 MB
Language: Language of the articles should be only in English, we are not processing articles in any other languages.
Font characters:
Font should be Times New roman throughout the article with the following varying sizes
Main heading: 16 size – No italics – Title case bold
Section heading: 11 size – No italics – Title case bold
Full abstract including heading: 11 size, the word “abstract” only should be bold, no italics.
Keywords: 11 size, the word “Keywords” only should be bold, no italics, give full stop after keywords.
Full text: 11 size, do not bold anywhere except important content, no underline, no unwanted italics (except bio terms and other terms which need italics as standard pattern).
Table name and figure name: 11 size, the word “Table” and “Figure” only should be bold, use colon after Table: and Figure:
Line Spacing:
All line spacing is single, do not use other spacing throughout the article. In reference section there should not be any space between each reference. All margins are 1” on all sides, do not change the template margin.
Units: All units in the article should be SI units.
Abstract:
No italics, 11 size font, do not remove the lines above and below abstract in template, do not redraw the lines, copy past the content between lines. Abstract should not be more than 200 words, give a precise abstract conveying what the article meant for, many readers just read the abstract to understand the importance of the article, hence this portion requires utmost attention, use simple words without improper expression, make it simple to read and easy to understand, provide important outcome of the experiments.
Keywords: Provide up to 8 keywords that express the article content, do not provide to generic keywords such as Remote Sensing, Environment, Biotechnology etc.

Article sections:
There should be only 6 sections in the article which may vary from article to article but the main sections remain the same, do not give section numbers for sections

  1. Introduction
  2. Materials and methods or Study area description
  3. Experiment/ tests conducted
  4. Results and discussion
  5. Conclusion/ Suggestion
  6. References

The above sections are only for guidance it may vary but the 6th section always should be references and the first should be Introduction in all the articles.

References
All references must be arranged first alphabetically and then it may be further sorted chronologically also. If the reference is provided from the same Author (s) in the same year it must be identified by the letter “a”, “b”, “c”, etc which is placed after the publication year. Ex. (2000,”a”)
References should be the last part of the article following the below given format

Reference Citation
If the reference is of a Single author: the author’s name (without initials) and the year of publication: Two authors: Both authors name and also the year of publication of the article. Three or more than three authors : First author’s name followed by “et al.”. Example : (Baskaran, 1998): (Crish Rabia and John Pedikri, 2008): (Podilinski et al.,)2004. Citing web reference can be like the journal article reference.
Images and tables
All images supplied should be at least 600dpi resolution, authors are informed that we follow high quality production technologies which requires high quality images, scattered, dull images will reduce the production quality. Images should be supplied without being inserted in tables, borders or any other format, they can be copy pasted in the required space. It will be better if the images are given in the last page, the quality of the image and the size should be proper. Tables should be given using tables options, do not draw tables using lines, the table width should be properly given, Also do not insert any tables as image format, it should be editable. The title of the table should be bolded and should not contain any text box. Supplied images should be of required quality authors are advised not to submit inferior quality images.
Tables
All tables should be numbered in order, the word Table may be bolded. The table number should be properly given, large size tables should be split into two or more tables so that it can be accommodated within the page size. Table width and cell sizing should be even and all the content should be centered. Number of the tables should be given over the tables and without any border, shading.
Ex: Table 1: Table showing the number of villages covered under this study
Figures
Provide figures with at least 350 dpi resolution, low resolution images supplied will not be accepted. All figure number should be arranged orderly, the figures should not be supplied separately but pasted in the proper place. Figure number and title should be given below the figure, the content of the figure should be explained in the title of figure. All images supplied should have enough resolution, inferior images will be removed. Do not give the figures and tables in the last page, provide them wherever necessary in the article. Provide the figure name and number below the figure and also do not form the images in two columns.
Ex: Figure 1: Image showing the map of the study area.

Points to be noted on producing tables and figures:
Use the word “Table”, “figure” rather than using as “tab” and “fig” throughout the article. All tables should properly fit within the margin and no table should go beyond margin. It is the author’s responsibility to prepare a table that matches the margin, tables may be reduced into smaller tables that fit into margin.
All tables should have a font size of 10.5 without fail, if reduced below this point will not be readable.
All figures should be of at least 300 dpi, figures below this quality will be rejected, if the image is copied from excel sheet they should be imported into graphics editing software and the quality should be enhanced. The quality of the article depends on quality on the image, author’s are informed to provided proper images, figures in the article to express the results.
Do not provide images/ figures that are not related to the article content, if any figure/ image is adopted from other article, it should be properly cited.
All tables and figures should be centred in the page, do not align on any side, all figures in the article may be of same size to the maximum extent.
Give table name as Table 1, Table 2 etc, do not give as Table 1.1 etc, the same should be done for figures provide as Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.

Notation:
Author is informed to provide all necessary notations, symbols used in the article after the keywords arranged properly, general notations/ SI units need not be defined Ex.: N-Newton.
Acknowledgement:
Authors may provide acknowledgement after 5th section conclusion, it should be within 50 words expressing the gratitude. If any agency/ organisation data is used in the article and permission is obtained for the same, it should be defined here.
Authors are advised to follow the above mentioned guidelines and enable us to publish the articles as quickly as possible.

Equations
All equations should be numbered in order from starting and the notations used in the various equations should be given after abstract. Authors are insisted to follow standard notations and SI units system even though its not mandatory.
