Preparation of the manuscript

General considerations

  • Research manuscripts must include:

  • Parent topic: Title, Author List, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords

  • Research manuscript sections: Introduction, Materials and methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions (optional).

  • Subsequent subject: Complementary materials, Acknowledgments, Authors' contributions, Conflicts of interest, References.

  • Review manuscripts should comprise the front, the literature review sections, and the back. The template file can also be used to prepare the front and back of your review manuscript. It is not necessary to follow the remaining structure. Structured reviews and meta-analyzes should use the same structure as research articles and ensure that they adhere to PRISMA guidelines.

  • Graphically Abstract:

  • A graphical summary (GR) is an image that appears next to the text summary in the Table of Contents. In addition to summarizing the content, it should represent the subject of the article in a striking way.

  • The RG must be a high-quality illustration or diagram in any of the following formats: PNG, JPEG, PDF, EPS, SVG, PSD, or AI. Text written on a RG should be clear and easy to read, using one of the following fonts: Times, Arial, Courier, Helvetica, Ubuntu, or Calibri.

  • The minimum size required for the RG is 1080 × 1080 pixels (height x width). When submitting larger images, be sure to keep the same aspect ratio.

  • Abbreviations should be defined in parentheses the first time they appear in the abstract, main text, and in figure or table titles, and should be used consistently thereafter.

  • SI Units (International System of Units) must be used. Imperial, US traditional and other units should be converted to SI units whenever possible.

  • Accession numbers for the RNA, DNA, and protein sequences used in the manuscript should be provided in the Materials and Methods section. See also the section on Sequence Deposition and Expression Data.

  • Equations: If you are using Word, use the Microsoft Equation Editor or the MathType add-in. The equations must be editable by the editorial office and not appear in image format.

  • Research data and supplementary materials: Please note that publication of your manuscript implies that all materials, data, and protocols associated with the publication must be made available to readers. Reveal at the submission stage any restrictions on the availability of materials or information. Read the information on Supplemental Materials and Data Repository for additional guidelines.

  • Pre-registration: when authors have pre-registered studies or analysis plans, links to pre-registration should be provided in the manuscript.

Front matter

  • These sections must appear in all types of manuscripts.

  • Title: The title of your manuscript should be concise, specific and relevant. You should identify whether the study reports data from trials (human or animal), or is a systematic review, meta-analysis, or replication study. When gene or protein names are included, the abbreviated name should be used instead of the full name.

  • List of authors and affiliations: the full names and surnames of the authors must be provided. The initials of any middle name can be added. The standard PubMed / MEDLINE format is used for affiliations: complete address information, including city, postal code, state / province, and country. At least one author must be designated as the corresponding author, and their email address and other details must be included at the end of the affiliation section. Read the criteria to qualify for authorship.

  • Abstract: The abstract should have a total of approximately 150 words maximum. The abstract should be a single paragraph and should follow the style of structured abstracts, but without headings: 1) Background: place the question addressed in a broad context and highlight the purpose of the study; 2) Methods: Briefly describe the main methods or treatments applied. Include any relevant pre-registration numbers, and species and strains of any animals used. 3) Results: Summarize the main findings of the article; and 4) Conclusion: Indicate the main conclusions or interpretations. The abstract must be an objective representation of the article: it must not contain results that are not presented and justified in the main text and it must not exaggerate the main conclusions.

  • Keywords: Three to ten relevant keywords should be added after the abstract. We recommend that keywords be specific to the article, but reasonably common within the discipline of the subject.

Research manuscript sections

  • Introduction: The introduction should briefly place the study in a broad context and highlight why it is important. You must define the purpose of the work and its importance, including the specific hypotheses being tested. The current state of the research field should be carefully reviewed and key publications cited. Highlight controversial and divergent hypotheses when necessary. Finally, briefly mention the main objective of the work and highlight the main conclusions. Keep the introduction understandable to scientists working outside the topic of the paper.

  • Materials and methods: should be described in sufficient detail to allow others to replicate and build on published results. New methods and protocols should be described in detail, while well-established methods can be briefly described and appropriately cited. Please indicate the name and version of any software used and clarify whether the computer code used is available. Include pre-registration codes.

  • Results: Provide a concise and accurate description of the experimental results, their interpretation, as well as the experimental conclusions that can be drawn.

  • Discussion: the authors should discuss the results and how they can be interpreted from the perspective of previous studies and the working hypotheses. The findings and their implications should be discussed in the broadest possible context and the limitations of the work highlighted. Future research directions can also be mentioned. This section can be combined with the results.

Clearly state the grants you received to support your research work and whether you received funding to cover publication costs. Note that some funders will not refund Article Processing Charges (APC) if the funder and grant number are not clearly and correctly identified on the document. Authors can enter funding information separately in the submission system during submission of their manuscript. Such funding information, if available, will be deposited with FundRef if the manuscript is finally published.

  • Author Contributions: Each author is expected to have made substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis or interpretation of data; or the creation of new software used at work; or has written the work or has substantially revised it; And has approved the version presented (and a version substantially edited by the journal staff that involves the author's contribution to the study); And you agree to be personally responsible for the author's own contributions and to ensure that questions regarding the accuracy or completeness of any part of the work, even those in which the author did not personally participate, are properly investigated, resolved, and documented in the literature.
    For research articles with multiple authors, a short paragraph should be provided specifying their individual contributions. The following statements should be used "Conceptualization, XX and YY; Methodology, XX; Software, XX; Validation, XX, YY and ZZ; Formal Analysis, XX; Research, XX; Resources, XX; Data Curation, XX; Writing - Original Draft Preparation, XX; Drafting - Review & Editing, XX; Viewing, XX; Monitoring, XX; Project Management, XX; Fund Acquisition, YY "See CRediT taxonomy for explanation of term.

Research and publication ethics

Research ethics

The editors of Green World Journal enforce a rigorous peer review process along with strict ethical policies and standards to ensure the addition of high-quality scientific papers to the field of scholarly publishing. Unfortunately, cases of plagiarism, data falsification, image manipulation, inappropriate credit of authorship and the like arise. The editors of Green World Journal take these editorial ethics issues very seriously and are trained to proceed in such cases with a zero tolerance policy.

Green World Journal in order to maintain universal criteria of ethics and impeccable conduct in the publication processes, subscribes to those established by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)

Collaborators and allies are responsible for the authorship of articles sent to the Journal. Authors or co-authors who commit plagiarism (any total or partial reproduction of content that is not cited), may not republish in GreenWorld Journal and the subsidiaries of the CaMeRa publishing house.

Submitting an article to different magazines is strictly prohibited; while umpiring at GreenWorld Journal.

If the Green World Journal ethics committee identifies double publication of an article, the contributor or contributors will be notified of the exclusion of said article from Green World Journal and will not be able or able to submit articles to the journal for a period of 5 years. .

Green World Journal, following the COPE guidelines on good Ethics and Good Practices, defends non-academic-scientific inbreeding and that is why the texts approved for each issue are at least 70% external from teachers and researchers outside the entity CaMeRa publisher or institutions (affiliation) belonging to its publishers.

General compliance:

  • Any fact that may be perceived as a possible conflict of interest of the authors must be disclosed in the document before its presentation.

  • Authors should accurately present their research findings and include an objective discussion of the significance of their findings.

  • The data and methods used in the research should be presented in sufficient detail in the document, so that other researchers can replicate the work.

  • Raw data must be publicly deposited by the authors before submitting their manuscript. Authors should have at least the raw data available for presentation to the journal's referees and editors, if requested. Authors should ensure that appropriate measures are taken so that raw data is retained in its entirety for a reasonable time after publication.

  • Simultaneous submission of manuscripts to more than one journal is not tolerated.

  • The publication of content that is not novel is not tolerated (for example, a translation into Spanish or English of an article that is already published in another language will not be accepted).

  • If authors find errors and inaccuracies after the publication of their article, they should immediately contact the editors of this journal so that appropriate action can be taken. Please see our policy regarding posting of posting additions and corrections.

  • Your manuscript should not contain any information that has already been published. If you include already published images or images, obtain the necessary permission from the copyright holder to publish under the CC-BY license. For more information, see the Rights and Permissions page.

  • Plagiarism, data fabrication and image manipulation are not tolerated.

Human research:

When reporting research involving human subjects, human material, human tissue or human data, the authors must declare that the research was carried out following the rules of the Declaration of Helsinki of 1975, revised in 2013. According to point 23 of this statement, the approval of an ethics committee should have been obtained prior to conducting the research. At a minimum, a statement including the project identification code, approval date, and the name of the ethics committee or institutional review board should be cited in the Methods Section of the article. Data relating to individual participants should be described in detail, but it is not necessary to include proprietary information that identifies the participants unless identifiable materials are relevant to the research (for example, photographs of participants' faces showing a symptom particular). The publishers reserve the right to reject any submission that does not meet these requirements.

Example of an ethical statement: "All subjects gave their informed consent for inclusion before participating in the study. The study was conducted in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki, and the protocol was approved by the Ethics Committee of XXX (Code identification of the project) ".
