JPPRes will not accept manuscripts that claim to demonstrate antioxidant or antimicrobial activity with a single evaluation or assay method. The phytochemical studies should be quantitative.
Antioxidant: Several studies on natural phytochemical compounds produced conflicting results because of the nonspecific “one-dimensional” character of methods used to evaluate antioxidant activity. Because most natural antioxidants and phytochemicals are multifunctional (i.e., due to variations in system composition, type of oxidizable substrate, media of initiation and acceleration of oxidation, methods to assess oxidation and to quantify antioxidant activity), a reliable antioxidant protocol requires the measurement of more than one property relevant to either foods or biological systems.
This also applies to the antimicrobial activity in which this activity will depend on the type of assay used for the evaluation of samples.
Microbiology: The resistance profile of microorganisms should be included. The disk diffusion is a preliminary method. Minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimal bactericidal concentration (MBC) by The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) should be included. Please indicate the sample solubility in aqueous systems (the culture medium is aqueous).
Phytochemistry: The phytochemical studies should be quantitative. Studies that describe only qualitatively secondary metabolites of a sample will not be accepted.
Authors are required to send a covering letter along with the manuscript undertaking that, “manuscript has not been published so far/communicated to some other journal”. The cover letter should include the corresponding author’s full address, email ID and telephone/fax numbers.
Before submission authors should ensure the manuscript format as per the JPPRes guidelines.
These ready to use templates are made to help the contributors write as per the requirements of the Journal.
