GUIDE FOR AUTHORS

These should be relevant to the aims of Society of Ayurvedic Physicians of India (SAPI). The manuscripts should be typed in English in double spacing with wide margins and should be numbered beginning with the title page. Research papers should be divided in to Abstract (up to150 words), Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion and References.
The journal follows a 'double blind' peer review policy. To ensure this following should be observed carefully
Cover Letter : Should contain only (1) Title of the paper, the names ,affiliations and the addresses of the authors, (2) Short title not exceeding 40 letters, (3) Name and the mailing address of the corresponding author to whom correspondence should be sent.
Main Article: Should contain the title , Abstract , Key words and the main text only. Tables and graphs should also be included within this file. The main article should not reveal the author name or identity in any way. It should also not contain any other component in the text which may reveal the authors identity.
1. Authors are suggested to refrain from translating fundamental words of Ayurveda in superficial English parallels. Following is a good example how these translations can adversely affect the whole flow of text : Acharya Sushruta has quoted health definition, “Health is the complete state of equilibrium of Dosha (humors), Agni (digestive power), Dhatu (body constituents) and Mala (proper excretion of waste products) along with mental, sensory and spiritual pleasantness’ and happiness of an individual.” In this text we need not to add prefix to sushruta and we need to understand that Dosha are not humors, agni is not digestive power, Dhatu are not body constituents and mala are not merely the excreta and essentially they mean for much more than what can be explained by their near English translations.
