Home Journal Issues Guide for Authors Editorial Board About Journal Aims & Scope News & Announcements

Annals of Ayurvedic Medicine (AAM) (An Official Organ of Society of Ayurvedic Physicians of India (SAPI)) invites contributions from authors for their prospective publication in AAM. The contributed material should be related to Ayurvedic Medicine with element of new reporting, new findings and novelty. We welcome articles in English. These should be relevant to the aims of Society of Ayurvedic Physicians of India (SAPI). The manuscripts should be typed in English in double spacing with wide margins and should be numbered beginning with the title page. Research papers should be divided in to Abstract (up to150 words), Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion and References.

The journal follows a blinded peer review policy. To ensure this following should be observed carefully

Cover Letter : Should contain only (1) Title of the paper, the names ,affiliations and  the addresses of the authors, (2) Short title not exceeding 40 letters, (3) Name and the address of the corresponding author to whom correspondence should be sent.

Main Article: Should contain the title , Abstract  , Key words and the main text only. Tables and graphs should also be included within this file. The main article should not reveal the author name or identity in any way.

1. Authors are suggested to refrain from translating fundamental words of Ayurveda in superficial English parallels. Following is a good example how these translations can adversely affect the whole flow of text : Acharya Sushruta has quoted health definition, “Health is the complete state of equilibrium of Dosha (humors), Agni (digestive power), Dhatu (body constituents) and Mala (proper excretion of waste products) along with mental, sensory and spiritual pleasantness’ and happiness of an individual.” In this text we need not to add prefix to sushruta and we need to understand that Dosha are not humors, agni is not digestive power, Dhatu are not body constituents and mala are not merely the excreta and essentially they mean for much more than what can be explained by their near English translations.

 

Supplementary files: any file which is required to be added as a supplement

Table should be given a short informative title and should properly be referred in the text, should be numbered and should be presented at the end of the manuscript. Figures (if any)  should be submitted electronically in JPG format or otherwise as requested. Each should also be provided with a figure number, a suitable title, any legends used within the figure and should be properly referred in the text.

References: The Pub Med system should be uniformly used for references. References should be cited in the text by number in square brackets  followed by a list of references in square brackets at the end of the manuscript.
