Author Guidelines

Instruction to authors

Aims and Scope:

Tikrit Journal of Pure Science is a quarterly refereed periodical devoted to the publication of articles that conform to its scope and editorial standards. The scope encompasses various disciplines of original experimental and theoretical research papers and articles in pure and applied sciences. All submitted papers are subjects to an extensive peer review by a panel of referees.

Submission:

Contributions should be sent to the Executive Editor: Editor in Chief, Tikrit University, College of Science, Tikrit, Iraq, E.mail: tjps@tu.edu.iq,  tik.journal@gmail.com. The original manuscript should be submitted online. The manuscript should be written in good native English language. Submitted manuscripts will be referees and, if necessary, authors may be asked to revise their manuscripts.

When submitting a paper for publication in TJPS, the authors state explicitly, that the paper has neither published nor submitted totally or partially elsewhere, the author has no right to withdraw his article while it is under processing unless he presents a written paper to do so and has to pay for refereeing expenses.

Time Schedule:

The main author should receive acknowledgment of receipt of the manuscript and within a few months, he should have a notification of acceptance or rejection or a request for revising.

Reprints:

One reprint will be supplied to the principal author free of charge.

Copyright Transfer:

Upon publishing an article, its copyright is transferred automatically to the publisher without further notification to the author.

 

Manuscript preparation:

In preparation of the manuscript, the following instructions should be strictly, as  following:

  1. Manuscript:

The original manuscript should be typed on one side of the A4 paper (210mm x 297mm). Double-spaced with 35mm margin alleges should be numbered Authors are requested to use SI. Units as the primary listing and to include, in parentheses, other conventional units only when their listing is extremely necessary to improve immediate understanding of the article contents. Authors are asked after acceptance of their paper, to send the manuscript on a disc indicating the software used.

  1. Layout:

Authors are requested to adhere to the following order: Title, authors(s) affiliations, Abstract, Keywords, Main text (1-Introduction, 2-Materials and Methods, 3-Results and Discussion, 4-Acknowledgments(optional), 5-Appendices (optional), 6-References.

  1. Length:

The total number of the papers should not exceed 10 printed pages of the Journal.

  1. Title:

The title should be concise and brief.

  1. Abstract:

The abstract should not exceed 200 words. It should contain the keywords of the papers as well as the essence of the results achieved.

  1. Figures:

Each Figure must be referred to in the text, and have a caption below it. The captions should be indicated in the margin axes of figures must be labeled properly. The drawings for the figures must be copied by a scanner and inserted in a suitable location after the paragraph that refers to the figure directly. The figures should be identified by the name and figure number.

  1. Tables:

Tables should be inserted in a suitable location after the paragraph that refers to the table directly and each table should have a number and headed by a tittle.

 

  1. References:

References to other works should be consecutively numbered in which they are cited in the text identified by Arabic numerals in square brackets [ ], and should be listed by number on a separate sheet at the end of the paper. Examples of correct reference forms are given below.
