JOURNAL OF DRUG DELIVERY AND THERAPEUTICS (JDDT)
An Official Journal of Society of Pharmaceutical Technocrats (SoPhTech)
Journal of Drug Delivery and Therapeutics (JDDT) publishes Reviews, Research papers and Short communications/Technical notes. Manuscripts will be reviewed by members of the editorial board, whose opinions will form the basis of the final decision by the editor. It is recommended that an English check of the manuscript by a competent and knowledgeable native speaker be completed before submission. Failure to follow them may result in papers being delayed or rejected.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN:

Articles from any part of the world are accepted provided submitted in English language only. It is necessary that authors prepare their manuscripts according to the instructions. Effectiveness of the peer review process will greatly depends upon the care used by the authors in preparing the manuscripts.
TYPES OF MANUSCRIPTS
Original Research papers
should contain unpublished results of original research, which must be presented in
sufficient detail to ensure the reproducibility of the described experiments and should present new experimental
studies in elaborate form that constitute a significant contribution to knowledge. They should be around 8-20
Technical notes/Short Communications
should contain new, important information which has not been
published and for which urgent publication is desirable. An explanatory statement is required for urgent
publication. Please also indicate in the cover letter the reason why the manuscript should be treated as a
technical note. In general, they should be around 2-8 pages
are concise and critical surveys of novel accomplishments in the author's research field and
should bring up the most important current topics or present interpretative and critical accounts, but not simple
compilation, on subjects of general interest. The work need not be complete; however, supporting experimental
data must be described. They should be around 10-25 pages.
is short and contains most specified information. It should be around 3-10 pages.
SUBMITTING PAPERS TO JDDT
Manuscripts are accepted on the understanding that the authors have obtained the necessary authority for publication. Manuscripts with multi-authors imply the consent of each of the authors.

Submission of an article to JDDT is understood to imply that it has not been either published or not being considered for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should be neatly typed, 1.5 lines-spaced throughout, including tables, on pages of uniform size with at least 1.5 cm margins on all sides. On acceptance authors are asked to fill the copyright transfer form that is available on journal’s web site.
Article file should contain Manuscript Title, Abstract, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion or Results and Discussion, Acknowledgment, Conflicts of interest, References;
Submit MS word files with Figure and tables electronically embedded within the text of the
document with at least 1.5 cm margins on all sides. Photos and graphs should be uploaded in images option
Top of paper, Times New Roman; Fonts all caps, bold, 12 points.

All Research, Research Notes, Reviews, Tools, Experience, and Commentary articles should include structured abstracts of 200 to 250 words.

Times New Roman, 12 points font size, text of the document with 1.5 line spacing
Use subheads to introduce the article’s main sections. Research papers should be presented in this format: Introduction, Objective(s), Methods, Results, Discussion, and Conclusion
Provide a context or background for the study. Explain the objective of research, or hypothesis used. Provide literature with references related to your research. Provide only directly pertinent references, and do not include data or conclusions from the work being reported.
MATERIAL AND METHODS
The Methods section should include only information that was available at the time the plan or protocol for the study was being written; all information obtained during the study belongs in the Results section. Author shouldprovide appropriate reference for every method used in research work.
RESULT & DISCUSSION
Present your results in logical sequence in the text, tables, and illustrations, giving the main or most important findings first. Do not repeat all the data in the tables or illustrations in the text; emphasize or summarize only the most important observations. When data are summarized in the Results section, give numeric results not only as derivatives (for example, percentages) but also as the absolute numbers from which the derivatives were calculated, and specify the statistical methods used to analyze them. Use graphs as an alternative to tables with many entries; do not duplicate data in graphs and tables.
Emphasize the novel and important aspects of the study and the conclusions that follow from them in the context of the totality of the best available evidence. Do not repeat in detail data or other information given in the Introduction or the Results section. For experimental studies, it is useful to begin the discussion by briefly summarizing the main findings, then explore possible mechanisms or explanations for these findings, compare and contrast the results with other relevant studies, state the limitations of the study, and explore the implications of the findings for future research and for clinical practice.
Link the conclusions with the goals of the study but avoid unqualified statements and conclusions not adequately supported by the data. Avoid claiming priority or alluding to work that has not been completed. States new hypotheses when warranted but label them clearly as such.
Tables, Graphs and figures: S
