In addition to reviews and analyses of recent research and science policy, ESP releases several peer-reviewed journals that publishes major original scientific research. We aim to publish papers that will significantly contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge in their respective fields or across disciplines. The facts, syntheses, or concepts in the chosen papers should be original and of general importance. Submissions are welcome from any source and from all scientific disciplines.
Manuscripts should be submitted via the official mail ID of perspective Journals.
Before submitting their manuscript, authors should become familiar with the general editorial guidelines for the ESP journals. The rights and obligations that authors accept when submitting and publishing their articles are outlined in these policies.
Research Articles (up to 4500 words, including references, notes, and captions, or 10 printed pages in the journal) should present a significant advance. An abstract, an introduction, up to six figures or tables, sections with succinct subheadings, and roughly 40 references are all included in research articles. Supplemental materials should contain information required to support the paper's conclusions in addition to the Materials and Methods section.
For the Final Submission, ESP prefers to receive a single full file in Word's.docx format (Word 2007, 2010, or 2008 or 2011 for a Mac) that contains all figures and tables. You may acquire a copy of our Word template here. The Supplementary Material must be delivered as one distinct file in either.docx or.pdf format. We advise utilising or adhering to the Microsoft Word template provided here to help organise the Supplementary Materials.
Users of LaTeX should use our word template as a model and submit a PDF file or convert the files to Microsoft Word.docx.
References and Notes
The length of titles shouldn't exceed 200 characters (including spaces).
On the first page of the text, a list of authors and their affiliated institutions, connected by superscript numerals, should appear beneath the title.
The general reader should be informed as to the purpose of the research, what was discovered, and why the findings are significant in the abstracts of research articles and reports. A sentence providing a general introduction to the area that is understandable to the average reader should be followed by a sentence providing more particular background information relevant to your study. An explanation of the OBJECTIVES/METHODS should come next, and finally the RESULTS. The major CONCLUSIONS of the study should be outlined in the final sentence in language that will be clear to all of our readers. Since the Abstract is separate from the main text, it shouldn't be the only source of background knowledge used to interpret the article.The abstract should not exceed 175 words. Please submit a one-sentence abstract for the perspectives and policy forums.
For reports, the main text is not broken up into subsections. Only research articles and reviews utilise subheadings. Instead of whole sentences, use descriptive phrases. If necessary, you may use two levels of subheadings; make sure to tell them apart clearly. The text should begin with a succinct introduction outlining the significance of the topic. The introduction should give enough background information so that readers from other fields can understand the paper and enough context so that the significance of the experimental results is obvious. Defining technical terms is necessary. The first time a symbol, abbreviation, or acronym is used, it should be defined. Numbers should be cited after all tables and figures.
References and Notes are numbered in the order they are cited: first in the text, then in the legends of the figures and tables, and finally in the Supplementary Materials. Citation numbers should be in parenthesis and italics for references and notes: (18, 19) (18-20) (18, 20-22). One reference list should be used to include both the paper's citations and Supplementary Materials.Do not combine references or insert references within notes; each reference should have its own unique number. Any references to manuscripts thatwere in-press at the time of submission should have a number in the text and be listed in the references and notes in the proper order.
The final numbered reference should be followed by a paragraph of acknowledgements. After appreciating the contributions of non-authors, this section should include details under the following headings. Include detailed financing information. Contributions by authors: a full list of each author's contributions to the paper.
Competing interests: All authors must disclose their conflicting interests. Also stated should be the absence of any competing interests by the writers. Information and resource availability: any limitations on products, like MTAs. Any information about the paper that has been deposited in a public database is given an accession number.
