Author Guidelines

Submission of Manuscripts

Authors should submit a new manuscript to the TJVIM using our online system available at Prior to submission, Authors may contact the editors to inquire about the suitability of their work.

In accordance with usual practice, papers previously published and are under consideration for publication elsewhere cannot be accepted, and authors must agree not to publish accepted papers elsewhere without the prior permission of the TJVIM. The paper should not normally exceed 5000 words.


Page charges:  There are no page charges for this journal.


Preparation of Manuscripts






Papers must be written in English. Authors whose native language is not English are strongly advised to have their manuscripts checked by an English-speaking colleague prior to submission. Manuscripts that are deficient in this respect may be returned to the author for revision before scientific review.


Presentation of Manuscripts 

  • Title
  • Author names and addresses
  • Abstracts (Not more than 350 words)
  • Keywords
  • Introduction
  • Materials and Methods
  • Results
  • Discussions
  • References 

     Give full references at the end of the manuscript

  • The photographs should be of high quality 
  • Graphs should be in a clearly visible form so that it may become easy to redraw
  • Do not create columns. (We do)

Up-to-date Instructions to Authors are also available on the Journals website. The manuscript should be prepared using Microsoft Word with the following layout.

  1. The manuscript should contain the title page, abstract, main body, and references.
  2. Tables should be added after references and each new table are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end (Check for sample manuscript template).
  3. Figures should follow the tables, putting each figure on a separate page ensuring that the figure is at least the size it will be in the final printed document. Number each figure outside the boundary of the figure. Resolution of the figures should be at least 300 dpi.
  4. Number manuscript pages consecutively and activates line numbering.
  5. The manuscript should be single-spaced. The beginning of each new paragraph must be clearly indicated by indentation. Left-justify the text and turn off automatic hyphenation. Use carriage returns only to end headings and paragraphs. Artificial word breaks at the end of lines must be avoided. Do not insert spaces before punctuation.
  6. Please use standard fonts such as Times New Roman. Use consistent notations and spellings
  7. Please follow internationally accepted rules and conventions for gene and protein names, units, for symbols, and for capitalization in text, tables, and figures.
  8. Please check for templates for preparation of manuscript.

 Title Page

The title page should include a concise and informative title, author names in full, and affiliations. The name of the corresponding author as well as his/her mailing address, telephone, and fax numbers, and e-mail address should be provided in a footnote.

The authors have to give ORCID numbers.


The abstract should be one paragraph, no longer than 250 words. No references should be cited in the abstract. Abbreviations should be avoided, but if they have to be used, they must be defined the first time they appear. A list of keywords (up to six) must be included after the abstract for indexing purposes. Words that appear in the title should not be repeated in the keywords.


General Arrangement of Text

The text should be divided into sections with the headings: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, and Discussion. Subheadings within sections except introduction can be used to clarify their contents. Introduction and Discussion sections may contain present tense to convey generally accepted information. Materials and Methods and Results are normally written in the past tense.



The introduction should define the problem and provide sufficient information to explain the background but there is usually no need for a comprehensive literature survey. The objectives should be stated but it should not contain a summary of the results.



Sufficient detail must be provided to allow the work to be repeated. This section should contain the experimental protocols and the origin of materials, tissue, cell lines, or organisms.


The Results section should be in logical order presenting the experimental results. Please do not include any interpretations, inferences, arguments or speculations in this section.



The authors should interpret their results clearly and suggest what they might mean in a larger context. Please do not repeat the information provided in the Results section.



Assistance received from funding agencies and colleagues should be acknowledged in this section.

Ethical statement

Papers describing experimental work with humans and animals must include a statement that the Ethical Committee of the institution in which the work was done has approved it.



References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters 'a', 'b', 'c', etc., placed after the year of publication.

All citations in the text should refer to:

Single author: the author's name (without initials, unless there is ambiguity) and the year of publication; Two authors: both authors' names and the year of publication; Three or more authors: first author's name followed by 'et al.' and the year of publication. Citations may be made directly (or parenthetically).

Examples: 'as demonstrated (Dantzer, 2003; Pinquart & Shen, 2011).

Dantzer et al. (2019) have recently shown ....'

Tables and Figures

Tabulation and illustration should not be used for points that can be adequately and concisely described in the text. Tables and figures should be understandable on their own without reference to the text. Explanatory footnotes should be related to the legend or table using superscript lower-case letters. All abbreviations should be defined after the footnotes below the table or by reference to a previous table in the same paper. Please check manuscript template.


Review Process

A double-blind peer-reviewed open access journal published three times a year. The Journals aim at the rapid publication of research results while maintaining a rigorous double-blind peer-review process. The editors will provide an initial response to all pre-submission enquiries within two working days. In addition, they will make every effort to give authors a decision following peer review within four to six weeks of an article`s submission. If the review process takes longer due to special circumstances, authors will be notified promptly by e-mail. Accepted articles will be published online within two weeks. Suggestions by the editors about revision do not imply that a revised version will necessarily be accepted. If minor revision is required, authors should return a revised version in two weeks. If major revision is required, authors should return a revised version within three months. You must clearly indicate the changes that have been made. Revised manuscripts that are not resubmitted within the indicated time frames will be treated as a newly submitted manuscript. Authors who disagree with Editor’s decisions may contact the Chief Editor for the final decision. The Editor and the Publisher are not responsible for the scientific content and statements of the authors of accepted papers.



Manuscripts should be checked carefully before submission since substantial alterations will not be permitted at the ‘proof’ stage. The editors reserve the right to make minor alterations to the text without altering the scientific content. Corrections should be sent to the publisher in one communication. If corrections are not received within 48 hours, the publisher reserves the right to proceed with publication.


Reproducing Published Articles

Individuals wishing to reproduce figures, tables, and excerpts of text from articles published in the TJVIM for non-commercial purposes may do so providing the original publication is acknowledged accordingly and the authors’ approval is obtained, and in this case, no special permission is needed from either the publisher or the editors. Authors may also include the article in a thesis without special permission. In all other cases, permissions may be sought directly from the TJVIM


Conflict of Interest

TJVIM requires authors to declare all competing interests in relation to their work. All submitted manuscripts must include a ‘competing interests’ section at the title page listing all competing interests (financial and non-financial). Where authors have no competing interests, the statement should read “The authors have declared that no competing interests exist.” Editors may ask for further information relating to competing interests. Editors and reviewers are also required to declare any competing interests and will be excluded from the peer review process if a competing interest exists.


Informed Consent

Including of details, images related to individual participants are not allowed. Experimental research on vertebrates or any regulated invertebrates must comply with institutional, national, or international guidelines, and where available should have been approved by an appropriate ethics committee. A statement detailing compliance with relevant guidelines and/or ethical approval (including the name of the ethics committee and the reference number where appropriate) must be included in the manuscript. If a study has been granted an exemption from requiring ethics approval, this should also be detailed in the manuscript (including the name of the ethics committee that granted the exemption and the reasons for the exemption). The Editor will take into the account the animal welfare issues and reserves the right to reject a manuscript, especially if the research involves protocols that are inconsistent with commonly accepted norms of animal research. In rare cases, Editors may contact the ethics committee for further information. Field studies and other non-experimental research on animals must comply with institutional, national, or international guidelines, and where available should have been approved by an appropriate ethics committee. A statement detailing compliance with relevant guidelines and/or appropriate permissions or licences must be included in the manuscript.
