Albus Scientia is committed to simplify the manuscript submission process. All submitted manuscripts are assumed not to be published previously or concurrently submitted for publication elsewhere.

File format

Before submission, please ensure that the main text should no more than 5,000 words and 10 display items (Figures, Tables) at maximum.

  • Format your manuscript as either a PDF (.pdf) or Word (.doc, .docx, .rtf) document so they can be easily and quickly uploaded. Figures and tables should be included within the document. You will need to provide the original editable files if your manuscript is accepted.
  • Microsoft Word: Manuscripts prepared in Microsoft Word must be converted into a single file before submission. Please insert your graphics (schemes, figures, etc.) in the main text after the paragraph of its first citation.

Preparation of Manuscript

Title page: This should include the title, authors' names, affiliations, and a complete address for the corresponding author(s) including an e-mail address(s). 

  • The title must be concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible. 
  • Do make the short title (running head) of no more than 50 characters.
  • Corresponding author. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that telephone and fax numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address. Contact details must be kept up to date by the corresponding author. 

Abstract: An abstract of up to 300 words must be included in the submitted manuscript. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. 

  • The abstract of Original Research Articles should be structured with subheadings (Background/Aims, Materials and Methods, Results, and Conclusion).
  • Excessive statistical details should be avoided.

Keywords: Should accurately reflect the content of the article. 

  • Each submission must be accompanied by a minimum of three to a maximum of six keywords for subject indexing at the end of the abstract.

Introduction: It should briefly introduce the relevant background of the research conducted (not a comprehensive review of the specific field), the purpose of the study reported, and provide a summary of the major findings. 

  • Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter. Please do not use subheadings in the introduction. 

Materials and Methods: This section should only contain sufficient detail so that all experimental procedures can be repeated by others, in conjunction with cited references. Subheadings can be used in this section. 

  • The authors are expected to provide full details of the research methods used, including study location(s), sampling procedure(s), the date(s) when data were collected, research instruments and techniques of data analysis.
  • Comprehensive information on the statistical analyses used must be included in the statistics sub-heading if applicable. 

Results: Major observations and conclusions of the reported study should be clearly and logically described here. Informative subheadings can be used in this section.  

Discussion: The significance of the reported discoveries in the paper should be discussed with historical and future perspectives. Hypotheses or theories supported by solid pieces of evidence might be proposed here.  

Conclusion (optional): This section can be added to the manuscript if the discussion is unusually long or complex. 

Author's Contribution: This section contains the authors contribution infromation.

Competing Interest: In this section the authors have to declare if there exists any comepeting interest.

Funding: This section contains information about funding sources.

Preparation of Figures and Tables

Tables: Each table should be prepared using the Table menu in Microsoft Word.  

  • They must be numbered following their number of appearances (Table 1, etc.).
  • To facilitate the copy-editing of larger tables, smaller fonts may be used, but no less than 8 pt. in size. 

Figures: To properly assess the data sufficiently high resolution (minimum 1000 pixels width/height, or a resolution of 300 dpi or higher) image file is required.

  • All Figures must be numbered following their number of appearances (Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.). Figure parts should be denoted by uppercase letters (A, B, C…).
  • Only TIFF& JPEG formats are accepted.  

All Figures, Tables, and Illustrates should have a short explanatory title and caption. Legends should be detailed enough so that each figure and caption can, as far as possible, be understood in isolation from the main text. 

References: In order to have consistency in the in-text citation and list of cited literature, the authors are advised to use "APA 7th Edition". The details are accessible on the website
