Could someone do me a favor for any guidance (link) for writing an International journal in micro-biology/micro-organism field? Could you please lead me to another source instead of this site

Thanks for any response.

  • This question does not appear to be about biology within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Quite often the journals themselves have guidelines/ some basic help on their sites. Apart from that, this is not really a biologically relevant question. –  skymninge Sep 2 '13 at 6:13
Agree with the other comment. Choose a journal and then check their guidelines, they can vary a lot even in the same field. And this should maybe be migrated to Academia.SE –  nico Sep 2 '13 at 6:37

These journals publish articles on a regular basis. Have a read of the articles they publish and the structure, style, etc of the published articles will give you a better guide than any website. Each journal will have a different style, so its important to read the journal before submission.

As per the comments, most journals provide some guidance on the scope of the manuscripts they accept and some guidance about the style and structure. But as I said before there is really no substitute for just reading papers.
