Author Guidelines

JSD doesn't chanrge authors for article processing and publication fees.  
It is recommended that the Journal article for publication in Journal fo Science and Development is prepared in the following stylic specifications. Authors can also use the Template prepared for the journal, that can be downloaded here

Styles for article preparations

Author(s)1 Names Should be written in bold 11-point Times New Roman2 like this,



1Affiliations should be in 10-points font size, Times New Roman and italicized like the samples in the tempeklate. It is mandatory that e-mails of each author are included in the affiliations.

The body of the abstract should be Times New Roman with 12-point font size in Italic style. The abstract should give a brief summary of the research (not exceeding 300 words) in manner that answers the following questions: What was and why it was done (background and justification in one or two statements)? How it was done (methodology) and what was found and what it implies (Results, Discussions and conclusions). Use of abbreviations in the abstract is discouraged.


Key words: list 3-6 relevant key words, do not bold the list.


*Corresponding author: (should be separately indicated like this, below the key words)

Names and emails of coauthors separated by semicolon (;). 


[Please do not modify any setting including the headers and footers of the Template document]




The body of the document should be in 11-point Times New Roman Font style. The entire body text including the references, should be prepared in two columns as it is presented in the tempelate.   Figures and Tables are required to be arranged in a single column.




The materials and methods section should present the details of the methodological approaches to the experiment. The materials and chemicals used in the research or other legal requirements like institutional review board (IRB) evaluation for studies involving humans and animals should be explicitly explained. The statistical designs and data analysis methods should also be included.  

2.2.          Sample Collection and Preparation

HEADING I should all be capital letters 12-points Times New Roman and automatically numbered (except for the Abstract). Heading 2 (sub-sections) should be bold with all the non-preposition words beginning with capital letters and the font size should be 11-point. Heading 3 should be formatted as 11-point bold Times New Roman with Italics style and also only the first letter beginning with capital.


Presenting the data (result) and discussing their accuracy, trends, implications and potential applications are presented in comparison with previous reports in the relevant literature. Illustrations (Figures and Tables) should be presented on the same or right the next page it is first cited and discussed. The Tables and Figures are numbered in a consecutive manner. The captions for Tables should appear at the top and that for Figure at the bottom of the illustrations. Texts and labels as well the shadings and colorings should be clear and legible.

Examples of Illustration Captions

Table 1 Example of a Table caption












Brief summary of the major findings of the research is presented; not the summary of the results.

4.    Declerations

Add a statement that the authors do not have confilicts of interest with the publication of the article in AgVS. 



Use of a consistent citation and listing styles is mandatory for the timely processing of articles and the quality of the journal. It is highly recommended that Citations and References management software programs be used. Mendeley is a free desktop app that can be downloaded from the internet and installed with ease. It has a web importer for your browser to directly collect references and add to your library on both the desktop (local) and the web, which are synchronized regularly. Mendeley also has a plugin for MS word to help manage insertion and listing of references in your manuscript.

It is recommended that the citation and listing style of Crop Science is used. The style of the Crop Science can be downloaded and stored in Mendeley library of styles.


Examples for citations

The citations of journal articles for different number of authors should follow this formats: one author (Teferra, 2021); for two authors (Teferra and Awika, 2019) and for three or more authors (Tadesse et al., 2016). Similarly, for Chapters in a book and a book itself, the citation should look like (Teferra, 2019) and (Kutz, 2019), respectively.

More information and video tutorials on the installation and use of Mendeley or other software programs can be found on the internet.
