INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS

 

The Egyptian Journal of Biophysics welcome original unpublished manuscripts (English Languish only) in the theoretical or applied fields of Biophysics & Medical and Health Physics.

 

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

 

Manuscripts should be submitted in triplicate to the editorial office (one original and two copies u which include photocopies of all Tables and Figures). A set of original. Camera ready art (laser prints. professionally. reinked and lettered araphs. or flosses) must be supplied with each submittal The submission should also contain the full text of the paper on a WordPerfect Data Disk (Windows 98 Word 7. or IBM compatible). Dot matrix art not acceptable Editor. Submission of a paper implies that it has the approval of all named Authors that it represents unpublished work and that if accepted for the Egyptian Journal of Biophysics. It will not be published elsewhere. Authors are required to as since copyright to the publisher. The appropriate form will be sent with the final proof.

 

MANUSCRIPT PREPARATION:

 

1-   Manuscripts must be double-spaced and type written on one side of 210x297-mm paper with pages numbered consecutively.

4-    Avoid end of line hyphenations to prevent typesetting confusion.

 

5-    The text, comprising a) Introduction. b) Experimental (Materials and Methods), c) Theory (if required). d) Results. e) Discussions (which may be combined with Results). f) Acknowledgements

 

6-    Reference should be cited as cited in the text e.g. (North l990) for one author, (North and Dodd, l990) for two authors and (North et al. 1990) for three or more authors.

The style to be used for Journal papers, books and articles is shown:

 

Barendsen. G. W. (1967) Mechanism of action of different ionizing radiation on the proliferativc capacity of mammalian cells: In: Cole; ed. Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics, New York: Marcel Dekker: Commission on Radiation units and measurements. (1983), Microdosimetry Bethesda. MD: ICRU Report 40.

 

Units, Abbreviations, footnote:

 

*    The International system of units (SI) must be used.

*    Nuclide mass numbers must appear at the upper left of the element symbols e.g. 252 Cf.

*    The first time an uncommon abbreviation appears, it must be preceded by the full name which it stands.

*    Spell out numbers unless they precede a unit.

*    Do not use "E-notations", use power of 10 in text and all art ER. 3.25x107 rather than 3.25 E7.

*    Use CBE style (Council of Biology Editor), for Footnote symbols throughout the entire text

(i.e.*, , , **, , ║, q, #,  etc.).

 

Tables and Figures:

 

*    Tables should be numbered consecutively in Arabic number and their approximate positions should be marked in the left margin of the main text.
