Effectiveness of the peer review process will greatly depend upon the care used by the authors in preparing the manuscripts.
Plagiarism: Original Research should be allowed to publish in the KSVJPHS Journal.
Research Article: Research papers should contain unpublished results of original research, which must be presented in sufficient detail to ensure the reproducibility of the described experiments and should present new experimental studies in elaborate form that constitute a significant contribution to knowledge. They may be up to 5-25 pages.
Review Article: Review articles are concise and critical surveys of novel accomplishments in the author's research field and should bring up the most important current topics or present interpretative and critical accounts, but not simple compilation, on subjects of general interest. The work need not be complete; however, supporting experimental data must be described. They should be around 5-30 pages.
Case Study: A case study describes a typical situation or problem. It is a written account, ideally from the decision-maker's point of view, of an undertaking as it actually occurred. The outcome of the situation described should generally be measured against selected criteria or benchmarks, and its presentation should contribute in one way or another to best practices and excellence. Finally, case studies offer an opportunity to relate real experience to the principles and practices of Pharmacy. In general, they should be around 3-8 pages.
Research Article and Review article:
- Research Article should be written with the following elements in the following order: Title page; Abstract; Keywords; Introduction, Materials and methods, Results, Discussion; Acknowledgments; Financial disclosure statement, Conflicts of interest, & References.

Research Article: This should be presented in Heading: Introduction, Objective(s), Materials & Methods, Results, Discussion, and Conclusion.
Provide a context or background for the study. Explain the objective of research, or hypothesis used. Provide literature with references related to your research. Provide only directly pertinent references, and do not include data or conclusions from the work being reported.
Material and methods
The Methods section should include only information that was available at the time the plan or protocol for the study was being written; all information obtained during the study belongs in the Results section. Author should provide appropriate reference for every method used in research work.
Result and discussion
Present your results in logical sequence in the text, tables, and illustrations, giving the main or most important findings first. Do not repeat all the data in the tables or illustrations in the text; emphasize or summarize only the most important observations. When data are summarized in the Results section, give numeric results not only as derivatives (for example, percentages) but also as the absolute numbers from which the derivatives were calculated, and specify the statistical methods used to analyze them. Use graphs as an alternative to tables with many entries; do not duplicate data in graphs and tables.
Emphasize the novel and important aspects of the study and the conclusions that follow from them in the context of the totality of the best available evidence. Do not repeat in detail data or other information given in the Introduction or the Results section. For experimental studies, it is useful to begin the discussion by briefly summarizing the main findings, then explore possible mechanisms or explanations for these findings, compare and contrast the results with other relevant studies, state the limitations of the study, and explore the implications of the findings for future research and for clinical practice.
Link the conclusions with the goals of the study but avoid unqualified statements and conclusions not adequately supported by the data. Avoid claiming priority or alluding to work that has not been completed.
States new hypotheses when warranted but label them clearly as such.
Tables, Graphs and figures: Should be appropriately inserted within text.
