Authors are required to follow the following manuscript structure of the journal
- Title of the manuscript followed by the name(s) of the author(s); their affiliation
and address; e-mail address, telephone number of the corresponding author
- Materials and Methods (or) Study area and Methodology
- Results and Discussion
The Abstract should be concise and informative. The abstract should briefly explain
the topic, state the scope of the experiments, principle results, and point out
major findings and conclusions. The Abstract should be 100 to 200 words that sketch
the important findings of the study and in general, it is presented separately from
the article, so that it must be able to stand alone. Standard nomenclature should
be used and abbreviations should be avoided.
Following the abstract, provide 4 to 6 key words which will be used for indexing
purposes. Choose the keywords which will reflect your research work and makes your
article easily noticeable in literature database.
The Introduction should provide a clear statement on the objectives of the problem,
the relevant literature on the subject, and the proposed approach or solution. Authors
are instructed not to provide a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results
in this section.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
The Materials and Methods section should provide clear descriptions and explanation
of the experimental procedures to allow the work to be reproduced by other researchers.
Clearly indicate the exact references which describing the experiments/analysis
and any modifications in the methodology should be mentioned which will allow other
users to get benefitted.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
Results should be presented with clarity and those results which are essential for
the study alone should be included. Repetition of data in tabular and graphical
forms should be avoided. Discussion and interpretation of the published literature
should be avoided. The discussions may relate the new findings to the internationally
accepted facts and may mention the advantages of the new findings in a logical manner.
This section should highlight the major findings of the present work without any
references. Detailed discussion and interpretation should be avoided in this section.
FIGURES AND TABLES
All figures are to be numbered and cited in the text using Arabic numerals as Fig
1. Figure legends should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet and not
to be attached to the figure. Information given in legends should not be repeated
in the text. Figures in JPEG, TIFF or in MS word format is accepted.
Individuals who provided assistance in the preparation of the manuscript or assisted
in the research work and the name of the funding organizations may be acknowledged
before the list of reference.
- References in the text should be cited first by name and year in parentheses as
(Jankowski and Acworth 1997), (Vega et al. 1998). References should be arranged
in the alphabetical order under the reference section of your manuscript. Authors
should take much care in the accuracy of the references. Journals and books must
be in the following format:

dissolved loads. Am J Sci. 287:401–428.
- Edmond JM, Palwer MR, Measures CF, Grant B and Stallard RF (1995). The fluvial geochemistry
and denudation rate of the Guayana Shield in Venezuela. Geochim Coscochim Acta.

After the manuscript accepted for publication, corresponding author will be required
to sign a copyright transfer form.
E-proofs will be sent to the corresponding author which will be considered as the
final version of the manuscript. Except typographical or minor alignment errors,
no major changes will be allowed to made in the manuscript at this stage.
All correspondence should be addressed to The Editor, EnviroGeoChimica Acta alongwith
the manuscript reference number.
