We accept the Vancouver and APA (American Psychological Association) reference styles. The articles belong to the medical, biology, and life sciences are required to use the Vancouver reference style. The journals of this category are as under,

  1. Advanced Food and Nutritional Sciences
  2. Advanced Biomedical Sciences
  3. Canadian Journal of Biomedical Sciences
  4. Journal of Applied Molecular Cell Biology
  5. Journal of Applied Pharmacy

Whereas, the following journals of social, business and technological sciences are needed to use the APA referenced style,  

  • Advanced Business and Finance
  • Advanced Calculation and Analysis
  • Advanced Engineering and Technology
  • Advanced Geosciences
  • Advanced Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Advanced Research and Education
  • Journal of Experimental Physics

The Vancouver references style should be numbered sequentially [in square brackets] in the text and listed in the same numerical order in the reference section. The reference numbers must be finalized and the bibliography must be fully formatted before submission. Few examples are given below,

APA (American Psychological Association) Style (1929) sought to establish a simple set of procedures, or style rules to increase the ease of reading comprehension. The rules or guidelines of this style ensure clear and consistent presentation of written material. Few examples of APA references style are listed below,

  • A book chapter, print version

Moreover, the references must be complete and accurate. If the number of authors exceeds six then et al. will be used after three names (the term “et al.” should be in italics). Date of access should be provided for online citations. Journal names should be abbreviated according to the Index Medicus/MEDLINE. Punctuation should be properly applied as mentioned in the examples given above. Superscript in the in-text citations and reference section should be avoided. Abstracts, unpublished data and personal communications (which can only be included if prior permission has been obtained) should not be given in the references section. The details may however appear in the footnotes. The authors are encouraged to use a recent version of EndNote (version 5 and above) or Reference Manager (version 10) when formatting their reference list, as this allows references to be automatically extracted.

Plagiarism Prevention

Consortium Publisher uses the software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. We check the contents of submitted articles against the archive of periodicals, online internet material and scientific database. The obtained similarity report highlights the proportion or percentage of uploaded article the overlap the published contents. Thus, we accept the overall 20% similarity of manuscript to be considered for publication.

Moreover, the content tracking mode ensures that manuscripts with an overall low percentage of similarity but have a higher similarity from a single source are not ignored. The acceptable limit for similarity of text from a single source is 5%. If the similarity level is above 5%, the manuscript is returned to the author for paraphrasing the text and citing the original source of the copied material.

Additionally, it is understandable that the scholarly articles are compiled after comprehensive review of previously published information. It’s not easy to differentiate the legitimated and plagiarized information. However, the certain features can potentially help to identifying different kinds of plagiarized content. 

 Approvals, Registrations, Patient Consents and Animal Protection

The clinical studies must be conducted according to the Declaration of Helsinki principles. All submission must comply with the guidelines of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors ( with regard to the patient’s consent for research or participation in a study. The editors can demand the documentation of the formal review and recommendation from the institutional review board or ethics committee responsible for oversight of the study.

The research studies involving the animals, the authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the standards set forth in the eighth edition of Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals; published by the National Academy of Sciences, The National Academies Press, Washington, D.C.).
