DO NOT include authors details or any identifying information about the authors in the main manuscript file. This is especially important, because the journal uses a double-blind review process and the file will be sent to reviewers.

Disclosure of any Funding to the Study

Any funding and conflict of interest should be disclosed.

If no funding has been provided for the research, please include the following sentence: This research did not receive any specific grant from funding agencies in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors OR Conflict of interest: none declared.

List funding sources in the standard way and it should separately appear before the 'Acknowledgements' section. And the following rules should be followed:

  1. The sentence should begin: ‘This work was supported by …’.
  2. The full official funding institution name should be given, i.e. ‘the National Institute of Health xxxx’.
  3. Grant numbers should be complete and accurate and provided in brackets as follows: ‘[grant number ABXXXXXXX]’.
  4. Multiple grant numbers should be separated by a comma as follows: ‘[grant numbers ABXXX, CDXXXX]’.
  5. Agencies should be separated by a semi-colon (plus ‘and’ before the last funding agency).
  6. Where individuals need to be specified for certain sources of funding the following text should be added after the relevant agency or grant number 'to [author full name]'. An example is given here: 'This work was supported by the National Institutes of Health [AB123 and CD456 to Adam Jones].

Disclosure of any Conflict of Interest

Any conflict of interest should be disclosed. Please include the section even if none are declared, using the following format: Conflict of interest: none declared.


Acknowledgements and details of non-financial support must be included at the end of the text before the references and not in footnotes. Personal acknowledgements should precede those of institutions or agencies.

Figure and Table Legends

A list with legends for each figure and table must be included.

Figures and Tables NO figures and tables are allowed in the main text. All figures and tables must be included in the manuscript file, as part of the text, not as images. All figures and tables should start on separate pages and be accompanied by a title, and footnotes (use superscript a,b,c….) where necessary. The figures and tables should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals. Abbreviations and their full definitions should be listed in alphabetical order at the bottom of the table. Limit the use of words. Please be certain that the data given in each figure and table is correct. All figures and tables must be cited in the text. Please avoid using vertical rules and shading in table cells.

Math formulae please submit math equations as editable text and not as images. Present simple formulae in line with normal text where possible and use the solidus (/) instead of a horizontal line for small fractional terms, e.g., X/Y. In principle, variables are to be presented in italics. Powers of e are often more conveniently denoted by exp. Number consecutively any equations that have to be displayed separately from the text (if referred to explicitly in the text).

Please do not:

  1. Supply files that are optimized for screen use (e.g., GIF, BMP, PICT, WPG); these typically have a low number of pixels and limited set of color.
  2. Supply files that are too low in resolution.

Authors are responsible for checking the accuracy of all references. BJEPS editorial board prefer to use one of citation management programs as EndNote or Mendeley or Reference Manager to facilitate referencing citations. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). BJEPS considered “Vancouver Style” of citation is the default style for indexing all references (journal article, book chapter etc.). DOI should be added at the end of each reference unless there is not any. See the following examples:

"Transfersomes are a special type of liposomes, consisting of bilayer former as phospholipid and edge activator (EA). These vesicles are more elastic than the conventional liposomes (1). Elasticity in these vesicles is accredited to the presence of an edge activator, which is a single chain surfactant with (2) a high radius of curvature, able of weakening the lipid bilayers of the vesicles and increasing their deformability and flexibility."
