In the text, citations should be indicated by the reference number in brackets. Multiple citations within a single set of brackets should be separated by commas. Where there are three or more sequential citations, they should be given as a range. Example: “… now enable biologists to simultaneously monitor the expression of thousands of genes in a single experiment [1,5-7,28].”

Authors are requested to provide at least one online link for each reference (preferably PubMed) as all references will be linked electronically as much as possible to the papers they cite. Please use the following style for the reference list:

The details of the methods used in the experiments should be described in the legend instead of in the text. We strongly recommend the authors to submit the tables as .doc format. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend.

This model has benefited the scientific community to view the articles without any money barriers so that they read and further investigate or research to advance the science rapidly.

Gexin Publishers follows author pay system so as to cover our production expenses which involves pre-qualitative analysis, double blinded peer review process, styling, editing, formatting, maintaining, and archiving services. APC is imposed at the beginning of the publication process and its flat rate varies according to the type of article for all our Open Journals.

All our journals require a standard APC for online publication. The Article Processing charge is $450USD.
