All manuscript submission needs to include the following:
- Main manuscript with Figures or Tables (if any) in the same file
- Graphicle abstract (It is a single, concise, visual summary or hilight of the main findings and could be the figure from the manuscript.)
Types of Manuscript
The NUJST Publishes 4 types of manuscripts.
1. Original Articles:Original Articles are comprehensive accounts of significant experimental or theoretical results, including clinical trials and case reports. The arrangement of full-length articles should accord with the guidelines in the manuscript preparation section.
2. Review Article:Review articles provide an overview of topics of current interest to researchers and are limited to 6,000 words.
3. Short Communications:Short Communications are preliminary reports limited to approximately 2,000 words, including 1-2 table(s)/figure(s) with not more than 15 references.
Contributors submitting manuscripts for consideration for publication should adhere to the following guidelines.

F. Article Text
The text must be divided into main sections, as follows:
The introduction should clearly define the purpose of the work and its significance. It should also provide a concise overview of the study, focusing on its importance as well as clarifying the gaps in existing research. It should consist of reviews and citations of relevant literature, highlighting any controversial hypotheses, if any. Finally, state the main aim of the study.
2. Materials and Methods
The materials and methods may be organized into subheadings for clarity. The materials and methods should provide a comprehensive description that allows other researchers to replicate and develop upon the published results. It should be briefly summarized and appropriately reference well-established methods while providing detailed descriptions of new methods and protocols. For interventional studies involving animals or humans and other research activities requiring ethical approval, it is necessary to specify the authority that granted permission and provide the corresponding ethical approval code. This ensures transparency and compliance with ethical guidelines and regulations.
The Results may be organized into subheadings for clarity. It should present a concise and accurate description of the experimental results, their interpretation, and the conclusions that can be drawn from the results.
Figures and Tables must be included in the main manuscript file in the appropriate context of the manuscript. Do not submit a separate file for the figures and tables. The figures and tables should be numbered consecutively.
Legends, tables, and footnotes should be typed on separate sheets. Footnotes must be numbered sequentially in superscript throughout the text and should be used sparingly. Figures should have a minimum resolution of 200 dpi. The file size must not exceed 2 Mb and should be named according to the figure number.

TIFF or JPG: Combinations bitmapped line/halftone (color or greyscale): use a minimum of 600 ppi.
The results and discussion parts may be combined. The discussion section should include an analysis of the present study's findings in relation to prior research and the working hypotheses. It should also address the research's limitations.
5. Conclusion and suggestions
The conclusion and suggestions should highlight the key findings and summarize the significant contributions to existing knowledge. The implications, significance, and potential applications of the findings should be discussed. The conclusions must be firmly grounded in the original research question and supported directly by the results. Additionally, authors may outline future research directions that can build upon the present study.
Acknowledgments should be as brief as possible, and the authors should inform anyone acknowledged in this section.
All referenced documents should be in English. References must be numbered in order of appearance in the text (including citations in tables and legends) and listed individually at the end of the manuscript.
