Author Guidelines

Editorial Policy
NJMS welcomes high-quality original research papers and survey articles in all areas of Mathematical Sciences and real – life applications at all levels including new theories, techniques and applications to science, industry and society. The authors should justify that the theoretical as well as computational results they claim really contribute to Mathematical Sciences or in real- life applications.

Although, there is no page limit for a paper to submit in NJMS, it is strongly suggested that a complete manuscript be no less than 5 pages and no more than 20 pages (10 pt, including figures, tables, and references) as mentioned in the paper Template. However, this can be extended with the acceptance of the respective referees and the Editor-in- Chief. The submitted manuscript should meet the standard of the NJMS.

Manuscript Preparation

  1. Required files
    Manuscript must be prepared in Microsoft Word format or LATEX  in the prescribed format with given page limit as mentioned in the template.
  2. Cover Page
    Manuscript of a paper should have a cover page providing the title of the paper. The title should be concise, specific, accurate and relevant that reflects the content not exceeding 20 words in length.
  3. Authors Names and Institutional Affiliations
    This should include the full names (with no titles or qualifications), institutional addresses (Department, Institute, City, Post/Zip code, Country), and email addresses of authors. Authors and affiliations must be linked using superscript numerals. The corresponding author should also be indicated.
  4. Abstract
    Each article is to be preceded by an abstract up to maximum 250 words, that highlights the objectives, methods, results, and conclusions of the research work. Abstract should not contain any images or equations.
  5. Key Words
    To identify the subjects under which the article may be indexed, 4-6 key pertinent words should be provided.
  6. Introduction
    The introduction should briefly describe the problem, purpose, significance and output of the research work, including hypotheses being tested. The current state of the research field should be reviewed carefully and key publications should be cited.
  7. Materials and Methods
    It describes the research plan, the materials (or subjects), and the method used. New methods and protocols should be described in detail while well-established methods can be briefly described and appropriately cited. It explains in detail the data, sample and population, and the variables used.
  8. Results
    The results section should provide details of all of the experiments that are required to support the conclusions of the paperwork in a clear and logical sequence. If tables are used, do not duplicate tabular data in text, but do describe important trends and points.
  9. Discussions
    This section should describe the limitations of the research plan, material (or subject), and methods, considering both the objective and the outcome of the study. When results differ from those of previous research works, explain the discrepancy. Discussion can also be combined with results.
  10. Figures and Tables
    Figures and Tables are to be separately numbered, titled in the text serially. Each Figure/Table should be placed at proper place of the text.
  11. Conclusions
    This section is not mandatory, but can be added to the manuscript if the discussion is unusually long or complex.
  12. Acknowledgments
    Acknowledgment is not mandatory. Acknowledgment should be included at the very end of the paper before the references.
  13. References
    The reference list appears at the end of the paper. It provides the information necessary for a reader to locate and retrieve any source cited in the body of the paper. Only published or accepted manuscript should be included in the reference list. Papers that have been submitted but not yet accepted should not be cited. NJMS accepts books, journals, and conference manuscripts only for citation. Authors are advised not to use websites URL references in the works cited list. The authors are advised the following points:
