The following text provides detailed information about various aspects of Manuscript preparation for submitting to JIRSD.
Authors must indicate the Manuscript Category under which they are submitting their manuscripts. All manuscripts (except those submitted under Book Review, Correspondence and News category) should have a brief introduction. The text should be intelligible to readers in different disciplines and technical terms should be defined. The text may be broken into sub-headings.
Figures (graphs, charts etc.) should be neatly prepared and placed within the text. Note that each figure will be considered equivalent to 250 words. The figures should be numbered in a chronological order using numbers (1, 2, 3 and so on) in the order of their appearance in the text. Each figure should have a suitable caption and the caption must be placed below the figure.
If the figure is made using data from another source, the source should be included within brackets after the caption and the full details of the source should be included in the references. E.g.
Figure. 1 Graph depicting global rise in population from 1901 to 2001. (Source: UNDP, 2011)
The text should include a reference to respective Figures else the Figures will be removed. E.g.
The population of the world has been on the rise since 1901 (Fig.1).
Tables should be neatly prepared in a word processing software (e.g Microsoft Word, OpenOffice) and placed with the text. Note that each table will be considered equivalent to 250 words. Tables should be numbered in chronological order using numbers (1, 2, 3 and so on) in the order of their appearance in the text. Each table should have a suitable caption and the caption must be placed above the table.
If the table is made using data from another source, the source should be included within brackets after the caption and the full details of the source should be included in the references. E.g.
Table. 1 State-wise population of India. (Source: Census of India, 2011)
The text should include a reference to respective Tables else the Tables will be removed. E.g.
