The current address (es) of author(s) should appear as a footnote. JVPP encourages the listing of authors’ Open Researcher and Contributor Identification (ORCID).

Abstract

Abstract should be descriptive and fully self-explanatory, the subject of study should be briefly presented, the nature of the studies should be specified, relevant data should be presented, and significant observations and conclusions should be pointed out. For this reason, references should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. Abstracts should be limited to 150 to 300 words. It is necessary to use complete statements, active verbs, and the third person, and while writing the abstract in the past tense. It is appropriate to use regular nomenclature and avoid abbreviations. There should be no literature cited in the abstract. For Original Articles, use a structured abstract with the following headings:

Introduction: Provide a short back ground and clearly state the main objectives of the study.

Materials and methods: Mention the study design, the sample(s), and the employed methods of data collection.

Results: Report the main findings.

Conclusion: State the outcome in relation to the hypothesis and possible directions for future studies.

Following the abstract, there should be about 3 to 7 keywords that will provide indexing references. Keywords should be arranged alphabetically.

Introduction 

Introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, and the proposed approach or solution. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

A concise statement of the issue, the related literature on the subject, and the proposed method or solution should be presented in the introduction. This section should be written in an understandable way to the research community involved in a wide range of scientific disciplines.

Materials and Methods

Materials and methods should be sufficiently complete to allow the replication of experiments. However, only genuinely new procedures should be described in detail; the employed procedures in the previously conducted studies should be cited, and important changes to the published procedures should be mentioned. This section involves a clear description of the sample collection, including eligibility and exclusion criteria. It is also important to note the employed methods, methods, equipment (give the manufacturer’s name and address in parentheses), and procedures. To further the method section, authors are required to explain the statistical methods to provide the chance for the readers to judge its appropriateness and verify the reported results. For further information you can download JVPP_STATISTICAL_ANALYSIS_GUIDE or contact us at Rovedarjournals@gmail.com

Ethical approval for the animals use in research should be indicated by a separate title in this section. The method section should involve the ethical approval obtained from an independent local, regional or national review body (e.g., ethics committee, institutional review board), and certificate number should be stated.

Results

The obtained results of the study should be presented with clarity and accuracy in logical sequence in the text, tables, and figures, giving the main or most important findings first. The result section should be written in the past tense when describing the findings in the author(s)’s experiments. Findings of previously published articles should be written in the present tense. The results should be clarified, but mostly without reference to the literature. Do not repeat all the data in the tables or figures in the text; emphasize or summarize only the most important observations. Discussion, speculation, and detailed interpretation of data should not be included in the results but should be put into the discussion section.

Discussion 

Discussion can be presented as a separate section or can be merged with the results. In any form, it should interpret the findings regarding the obtained results of the study with reference to previous studies. Do not repeat in detail data or other information given in other parts of the manuscript, such as in the Introduction or the Results sections. 

Conclusion

At the end of the paper, state the conclusions in a few sentences. Link the conclusions with the goals of the study but avoid unqualified statements and conclusions not adequately supported by the data. Avoid making statements on economic benefits and costs unless the manuscript includes the appropriate economic data and analyses.

Declarations Section

Please ensure that the following sections are included at the end of your manuscript in a Declarations section.

-Acknowledgement

-Funding

-Authors’ contribution
-Authors’ relationships and activities

-Availability of data and materials

 Acknowledgment

JVPP encourages the author(s) to acknowledge anyone who contributed to the study but does not meet the criteria for authorship. Authors should obtain permission to acknowledge all those mentioned in the Acknowledgements.

Funding

This section includes the sources of support for the work, including sponsor names along with explanations of the role of those sources if any in study design; collection, analysis, and interpretation of data. Authors are expected to declare any restrictions regarding the submission of the report for publication, or a statement declaring that the supporting source had no such involvement or restrictions regarding publication.

Authors’ contributions

The Uniform Requirements by the ICMJE recommends authorship as follows: “Authorship credit should be based on 1) substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; 2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and 3) final approval of the version to be published; and 4) agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved. Authors should meet conditions of 1, 2, 3, and 4”. Authorship is an important aspect of research publication, and all involved authors should agree the whole contents of the document including authorship. Contributors should be differentiated from authors as recommended by the ICMJE.

JVPP does not allow authorship correction after publication unless the editorial staff made an obvious mistake. Before publication, authorship can be changed in case when all authors request the authorship correction.

Declaration of Ethics Including Authorship

The corresponding author must declare research ethics including authorship by stating the following sentences in the cover letter.

“All of the byline authors meet the ICMJE criteria for authorship. We well understand the privilege and responsibility of the authorship of scientific publications. We declare that we are keeping global and/or local guidelines of research and publication ethics strictly including authorship.”

After the manuscript accepted for publication, a declaration form will be sent to the corresponding author who is responsible for coauthors’ agreements to the publication of submitted work in JVPP after any amendments arising from the peer review.

Authors’ relationships and activities

Authors are responsible for disclosing all relationships and activities that might bias or be seen to bias their work. The ICMJE has developed a Disclosure Form to facilitate and standardize the authors’ disclosures. The corresponding author of an article is required to inform the Editor of the authors’ potential conflicts of interest/competing interest possibly influencing the research or interpretation of data. A potential conflicts of interest should be disclosed in the cover letter even when the authors are confident that their judgments have not been influenced in preparing the manuscript. Such conflicts may include financial support or private connections to pharmaceutical companies, political pressure from interest groups, or academic problems. Disclosure form shall be the same with ICMJE Uniform Disclosure Form for Potential Conflicts of Interest. The Editor will decide whether the information on the conflicts should be included in the published paper.

Availability of data and materials

Authors are asked to inform the Editor of JVPP about the availability of data to the community, especially if the study is financially supported by any institution, sector, or sponsor.

 References

 The JVPP reference style for EndNote can be found here. All references to publications made in the text should be numbered in the order they appear at the end of the study in a list with their full bibliographical description. The citation of grey materials (e.g., mass media, abstract, personal communication) are not allowed unless they provide essential information not available from a public source.

Citations in the Text

Placement of citations: In-text citation numbers should be placed after the relevant part of a sentence before the period.

References are numbered consecutively in the order they are first mentioned. Place each reference number in brackets throughout the text, tables, and legends. If the same reference is used again, re-use the original number.

Tables are numbered consecutively. Supply a brief title for each table and give each column a short heading. Be sure that the table is mentioned in the text. If the data is taken from another source, include the source in the list of references at the end of the paper. Place explanatory matter in a note, not in the heading.

Example

With the growing concern regarding the unhealthy consequences of using chemical preservatives in the food industry, the attention towards natural and herbal substances has been increasing every day. The phenolic acids are recently receiving high attention because of their many promising different useful effects related to their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties1-5. Chlorogenic acid (CGA) is one of the most available phenolic acid compounds in foods, such as coffee and tea6,7.

On the References Page

The last page of your paper is entitled References. References are single spaced, with double-spacing between references. DOI number or the link of article should be added to the end of each reference.

 Numbering: List all references in order by number, not alphabetically. Each reference is listed once only, since the same number is used throughout the paper.

 Authors: List each author’s last name followed by a space and then initials without any periods; there is a comma and space between authors and a period at the end of the last author. If the number of authors exceeds six, give the first six followed by “et al.” For edited books, place the editors’ names in the author position and follow the last editor with a comma and the word editor (or editors). For edited books with chapters written by individual authors, list the authors of the chapter first, then the chapter title, followed by “In:”, the editors’ names, and the book title (see example 7).

Tables

Tables should be kept to a minimum and be designed to be as simple as possible. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals, and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. The details of the methods used in the experiments should preferably be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph forms or repeated in the text.

Figure legends should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet. Graphics should be prepared using applications capable of generating high-resolution GIF, TIFF, JPEG, or PowerPoint before pasting in the Microsoft Word manuscript file. Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper-case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.

Units of Measurement

JVPP requires an exact report of the measurements of length, height, weight, and volume in metric units (meter, kilogram, or liter) or their decimal multiples. Temperatures should be in degrees Celsius. Blood pressures should be in millimeters of mercury.

Nomenclature and Abbreviations 

The following abbreviations may be used without definition in JVPP. Plurals do not require “s”. Chemical symbols and 3-letter abbreviations for amino acids do not need definition. Other abbreviations should be defined at first use in the summary and the main text, as well as in each table or figure in which they appear. Abbreviations should not be used in the manuscript title, running title, or to begin a paragraph or sentence. They can be used in section headings if previously defined.

Formulae, numbers, and symbols

Typewritten formulae are preferred. Subscripts and superscripts are important. Check disparities between zero (0) and the letter 0, and between one (1) and the letter I.

Describe all symbols immediately after the equation in which they are first used.

For simple fractions, use the solidus (/), e.g. 10 /38.

Equations should be presented into parentheses on the right-hand side, in tandem.

Levels of statistical significance which can be used without further explanations are *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, and ***p < 0.001

In the English articles, a decimal point should be used instead of a decimal comma.

In chemical formulae, valence of ions should be given, e.g. Ca2+ and CO32-, not as Ca++ or CO3.

Numbers up to 10 should be written in the text by words. Numbers above 1000 are recommended to be given as 10 powered x.

Greek letters should be explained in the margins with their names as follows: Αα - alpha, Ββ - beta, Γγ - gamma, Δδ - delta, Εε - epsilon, Ζζ - zeta, Ηη - eta, Θθ - theta, Ιι - iota, Κκ - kappa, Λλ - lambda, Μμ - mu, Νν - nu, Ξξ - xi, Οο - omicron, Ππ - pi, Ρρ - rho, Σσ - sigma, Ττ - tau, Υυ - ipsilon, Φφ - phi, Χχ - chi, Ψψ - psi, Ωω - omega.

SNP Nomenclature

The enhancing number of SNP researches and the improvements in chicken genome annotation need a standardized SNP nomenclature for unequivocal and correct SNP identification. Furthermore, information regarding the SNP studies should be easily accessible in databases. In addition, all relevant SNP involved in research should be listed with their unique Ref SNP (rs) or submitted SNP (ss) number (if rs number is not yet available) as indicated in the public domain NCBI dbSNP database (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/snp). If the investigated SNP does not yet have an entry in the NCBI dbSNP database, the authors of the article can submit all the necessary information to NCBI (Check http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/projects/SNP/) for depositing the SNP into this database and having a unique ss number for the SNP. In the text of the article, use of the rs/ss number of the SNP or an alternative standardized nomenclature is suggested.
