Preparing your FULL PAPER


1. The manuscript should be in English, typewritten double-spaced on one side of
letter size (8.5 11) bond paper, using 11-point Arial font and a margin of 1.5
inches on the left-hand side and 1 inch on top, bottom and right sides of bond paper.
Pages should be numbered on the upper right hand corner of the page. The paper
should not exceed 16 pages, including Figures and Tables.

Use the following filename format: Initials of Category_Affiliation_Name of First


Author_Article Title (first 5 words). Example: DD_UPLB_SSR Suba_Detection of antibodies to
feline.doc Use these initials for the category: AP: Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry; AR:
Applied Research; BR: Biotechnology-Reproduction; BH: Biotechnology-Health; BN: Biotechnology-
Nutrition; BG: Breeding and Genetics; DV: Development; DD: Diseases and Diagnostics; MS:
Medicine and Surgery; NU: Nutrition; PP: Production and Processing; and SE: Socio-Economics. For
Undergraduate Thesis category, add U to the category above, example: ARU for Undergraduate
Thesis that is of Applied Research field.

2. Sequence of contents of the manuscript - The manuscript should be organized in


the following order:
TITLE PAGE. The title page contains the title, author names and addresses and
institutions to which paper should be attributed. The title must accurately describe
the contents of the research paper. It should be centered, typewritten in bold, all
capital letters, and arranged in inverted pyramid. The title should NOT contain
abbreviations, proprietary names, chemical formulas, jargon and outdated
terminology.

The author names are typewritten in bold, lower case except the first letter, and
placed below the title. The authors should be NOT more than six and should follow
the following format: First name-Middle initial-Last name. An asterisk should be
affixed to the name of the author presenting the paper. A + sign should be affixed
to the author for correspondence. The complete postal and email addresses of the
author to whom correspondence should be addressed should be written below the
author names. The complete addresses of the non-presenting authors should also
be specified. Use superscripts to indicate author and corresponding address.

ABSTRACT. Typed as a single-paragraph, the ABSTRACT follows the title page.


The abstract must represent the content of all the main sections of the paper. This
section should briefly but clearly state the main objectives and scope of research
work, describe the principal methodology and summarize the main findings and their
significance. It should not exceed 200 words and should not contain figures, tables
and references to the literature. The title of the paper should appear above the
ABSTRACT.
8
Key Words: Written below the ABSTRACT are a maximum of five (5) key words
or short phrases that can be used for indexing your paper. Arrange these in
alphabetical order.

TEXT. The text follows the ABSTRACT and presented sequentially with main
headings as follows: INTRODUCTION, MATERIALS AND METHODS, RESULTS
AND DISCUSSION, CONCLUSION, ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS and REFERENCES.
Secondary headings, if any, should not be indented, set in bold letters with only the
first letter of the first word capitalized. Tertiary headings, if any, should be
underlined, with only the first letter of the first word capitalized.

INTRODUCTION. This section introduces the paper, hence should include: (1) a
background that describes the nature and scope of the research problem
investigated (how and where the research problem arose) and how important the
problem is; (2) a statement on how the present study contributed to the solution of
the research problem; (3) broad information that defines the nature and extent of the
present work; (4) the significance of study; and (5) study objectives.

MATERIALS AND METHODS. The materials and procedures used should be


adequately and concisely described in sufficient detail that other competent
researchers can reproduce the study. This section identifies the type of study used
(e.g., survey, case-control, case series, cohort study, experiment), sources and
materials employed and important characteristics, sampling procedure, data
collection techniques/tools (e.g., records review, interview/ checklist, interview
guide), time periods, study setting, as well as procedures for assessment of data.
Statistical tests used must be cited and should specify the data analyzed. For
experiments, the experimental design, interventions used, and the number of
replicates should also be mentioned. The use of generic or chemical names is
preferred over trade names. However, if there are known critical differences among
proprietary products, the trade name, plus the name of the manufacturer and
address can be used. The trade name, if not avoided, must be used only in the
MATERIALS AND METHODS. Subheadings can be used when warranted (i.e. when
the contents under each heading are more than 1 paragraph). Authors should use
the System Internationale for the units. The common abbreviations are m (meter); l
(liter); g (gram); ml (milliliters); mm (millimeters); mol (mole); hr (hour); min
(minutes); sec (seconds).

RESULTS AND DISCUSSION. The results comprise the answers to the research
question posed in the INTRODUCTION. The data must be presented clearly,
concisely and logically. In discussing the findings, do not repeat but only interpret
the study results and observations; show how the results and interpretations agree
or contrast with previously published works. If necessary, inconsistency between the
present work and that of others must be explained. The shortcomings of the
methods used and the implications of the findings should be discussed. This section
may be divided into subheadings in the order of citation in the MATERIALS AND

9
METHODS section, for easier reading or to avoid confusion. This section can also
be divided into RESULTS section and DISCUSSION section.

CONCLUSION. Conclusions must be based solely on the study results. Before


concluding, the authors may indicate any principal limitations of the study, any
restrictions in generalization of the findings to the population, the accuracy and
precision of analytical methods and the effect of uncontrolled variables. This section
may include recommendations arising from the results of the study.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS. This section acknowledges significant help to the work or


to the interpretation of the work received from any individual, and any outside
financial assistance.

REFERENCES. References should be confined to papers with direct bearing on the


authors research work but should exclude mimeographed references, terminal
reports and annual reports. References cited in the text of the paper should be
written by last name of first author or authors (for 1 or 2 authors) followed by the
year. If there are three or more authors, then the last name of the first author should
be cited, followed by et al. and year: e.g., Castillo (1986); Mateo and Billena (2000);
Lambio et al. (2004) or Lambio et al., 2000. All citations in the text should have
entries in the REFERENCES section. The entries should be listed in alphabetical
order. Each reference should contain the last name followed by the initials (without
comma) of the first name and middle initial (without period) of the author/s, year, title
of article/ chapter, name of journal/ book/ thesis/ dissertation/ proceedings in italics
and abbreviated, volume, number (where applicable) and inclusive pages preceded
by a colon, or place of publication and publisher (for books). Abbreviate the titles of
periodicals mentioned in the list of references in accordance with BIOSIS Serial
Sources (http://www.efm.leeds.ac.uk/~mark/ISIabbr/A_abrvjt.html). For electronic
references, site the author(s), year, title of the article, date of access and DOI or

unusual abbreviations included in the tables must be properly identified using table
footnotes. A table should stand alone, i.e., it can be fully understood even without

provided with concise titles placed at the bottom, including a brief description of the
figures. Figures should be prepared at final size for reproduction with minimum type
size of 9 points, Arial. Illustrations, photographs or plates should be prepared in such
a way that it can be fully understood even without referring to the body of the
manuscript. All figures should be cited in the text. Illustrations should be attached to
or drawn on separate sheets with legends. Where necessary, magnification should
be shown by a scale marker drawn on the photograph. The figures must be
submitted in separate .jpeg files. The original source must be acknowledged if any

11
plate should be included in the article. Color plates will not be accepted except for
very special cases and that authors agree to shoulder cost of color printing.)
