Research Papers
A research paper containing original unpublished work can be submitted to the Editor any time of the year. The papers may be up to 4 single-spaced typed A4 pages inclusive of tables, photographs and references. The photographs may be the minimum since the printing will be only in black and white. Two hard copies of the manuscripts must be submitted along with a CD saved in MS word. Photographs must be scanned in.jpeg format. Tables prepared in Excel should be saved as such in the CD. The title should follow the names and address of all the authors. The abstract should not be more than 100 words. A few Key words should also be given immediately after the abstract. The text of the articles should be divided into various sections as the case may be. Each reference should be cited in the text by author and year in the parentheses and if there is more than one author the first author’s name should follow et al., followed by the year in the bracket. The references should be cited in alphabetical order on the following pattern:

1. Gaston, K.J., 1991. The magnitude of global insect species richness. Conservation Biology,5: 283-296.
2. Norse, E. A. and R.E.McManus, 1980. Ecology and living resources: Biological diversity. In: Environmental Quality 1980: The Eleventh Annual Report of the Council on Environmental Quality, Washington, DC. pp. 31-80

All research papers are charged @ Rs. 400/- per B/W printed page as reprint charges. Printing of colour pages are also undertaken on specific request from the authors. Purchase of 25 reprints is compulsory. On acceptance of a paper the first author will be sent the acceptance letter, edited copy for correction and demand for reprint charges.

The first author should return the edited copy after necessary corrections to the Editor along with the payment with in two weeks.

Reviews and Updates
The contents should be related to the syllabi of any one of the courses in Zoology offered by various Universities in Kerala. The articles should function as an additional reading material to the graduate and post- graduate students as well as their teachers. We request the Zoology faculty in various colleges and Universities of Kerala to contribute their articles. Scientists of various Biological Research Centres and Teachers in related disciplines are also welcome to contribute. Articles from students will also be considered on merit. Manuscripts should be typed copies of about 3-4 pages. We prefer a floppy disc in MS word or an E-mail transfer. The deadline for receiving articles will be the 31 st October of every year.

The journal will be in black and white printing and hence photographs and other drawings should be at the minimum. We suggest no definite format. However, contributors may confirm to the current practices of various journals. An editorial board of experts will select the articles.
