Article Submission

TGC Journals accept research articles, reviews, mini reviews, communications, case reports, case studies, opinions, editorials, perspectives, commentaries and letters for publication. Articles submitted to the particular journal must and should fit within the scope of the journal.

Principles to be followed for writing your article

Accompanying word processor file formats are acceptable for the manuscript in TGC journals: Microsoft Word (DOC, DOCX).
The article should be self-possessed in the following sequence: title, list of authors, affiliations of the authors, author order, correspondence of the article, Abstract, Keywords, Abbreviations, text, methods, references, Supplementary Information line (if at all), acknowledgements, author commitments, author data (containing data deposition statement, competing interest declaration and corresponding author line), tables and figure legends.

Author Affiliation

Authors should disclose their affiliations like their name, affiliation, institution, university, city, state and country.

The editorial office will communicate with the corresponding author and the publisher/editor/reviewer/editorial staff is not involved in authority disputes amongst authors. Equal contributions and equal correspondence must be stated in the article.


The Abstract should be informative and as brief as possible about the study, validate noteworthy information, and pay attention to significant findings and conclusions. Moreover, the abstract is only part of the article that several people who read it are attentive to. Therefore, authors need to ensure that the abstract is precise. In most cases, the data specified in the abstract and the text vary. Hence, it is mandatory for the authors to cautiously go over the abstract to confirm that the data is consistent in both places, i.e., the abstract and the text. Abstracts may as well edit the content to 100–150 words. References and citations must not be merged in this section. Abstract put up the study context, Aim, methods, results and conclusion.


4-8 catchphrases. Research articles, reviews and case studies should have a list of keywords that are used repeatedly in the article. (They should be separated with a semicolon e.g., Hormones; Histogenesis; organogenesis.)


The use of standard abbreviations in scientific articles is highly endorsed and valued. Each abbreviation mentioned should be used properly. The title should not contain any abbreviations; if so, they must be expended.

Nomenclature And Measurements

Manuscript Title

The title should be a brief catchphrase representing the contents of the article. The title should not contain any abbreviations, if so, they must be expended.


It may as well reflect the quality of the article. It should provide a realistic delivery of the study, the appropriate literature on the topic, and the projected methodology or result. It needs to attract the viewer’s attention through a wide range of scientific disciplines.

Materials And Methods

It should encompass the complete outline of the study. The details of materials or members, evaluations, descriptions of involvements and types of investigations are to be included. Advanced trials should be stated clearly, and specific variations of published techniques are to be cited briefly.
The Methods section should be subdivided based on the research work by subheadings and sub-subheadings denoting the methods applied, subsections for statistics, reagents and animal models are also considered. A clear statement of approval from the institutional/ university or national ethical committee should be obtained in cases where animal or human subjects are used in the experiments. A recordkeeping ID/number should be furnished for the clinical trials on human subjects. There must be no repetition between the Methods section and the Supplementary Information if provided.


Units might as well have a single space between the number and the unit and follow SI nomenclature or the regular terminology for a specific field.

Results And Discussion

It should furnish the complete details of the experiments that support the conclusion. Results and Discussions may be merged or separated as a segment. Assumptions and descriptive scrutiny of information are not to be unified in the results section but can be included in the discussion.


It takes into account the confirmation of individuals, grant particulars, funds or resources and conflicts of interest. The author should acknowledge the author’s contributions, such as design, data collection and preparation of the article. All listed authors are responsible for the content and subsequent revisions of the article. Financial support from the university, institute, public, or private sectors should be stated in the manuscript. Complete information about the funding source, including a grant number and grantee name must be stated. Grantees from the NIH/WELCOME Trust may submit the final accepted article for inclusion in the PMC public access repository (


Appendex or supplementary data should be submitted in a separate file and cited in the text of the article. Supplementary data may include figures, tables and text with citations that support the study. An exceptional link will be provided to the supporting information on the journal web page and is not charged.

Authors retain patent, trademark, and IP rights, including the original findings of their work.
In the case of a replica of any published work or a part of it, such as figures/tables/text, etc., the corresponding author is a reliable person to obtain the copyrights from the previous publisher. It is obligatory to state the copyright transference evidence wherever necessary and make sure that it is cited properly.


In science publication, it is preferable to authenticate errors, which are quite common; however, they should not disturb the exactness or systematic quality of the journal. In any case, scientific misconduct and errors in experimental methodology are also not acceptable for publication. To maintain journal quality, the editors of TGC journals follow an internationally accepted retraction policy. When authors fail to observe the ethical code, any plagiarized or copied content in the published article will be subject to retraction. A notification will be published on the website with the reasons. A citation and web link is available on the retraction note. In the case of a high degree of discussion on a published article, letters will be published to exchange information.


The erratum section, which includes a note of corrections at different construction levels in a published article, will be provided in the succeeding issue of the journal. In this section only writing errors, editing and typesetting errors and mistakes in tables and figures will be corrected and published.


A corrigendum encompasses corrections submitted by the authors in published articles that are corrected and published. The author must ensure that these corrections do not modify the results or conclusion of the published article. Any errors in units of measurement, misidentification of strains, authorship, affiliations, etc. are considered changes only when the corresponding author sends a statement to the editorial office with a list of corrections and an attached document with all co-author’s approval for the changes.
