Text:
The text of the manuscript should be written in easily understandable format with the Capitalized main titles.

Tables:
Arrange the tables in chronological order as given in the text. Each table should be numbered according to their sequence as given in the text. All the tables should be presented in a separate file or folder and should not be part of the text. Title of the table should be clear and short. Table numbers should be given in 1, 2, 3 letters. The explanations if any essentially required to understand the table can be given as a footnote at the bottom of the respective table. If an individual table contains too much of data attempts should be made to split in to multiple tables. Also note the description of the contents of the table in text part should be in brief highlighting the important findings. Column headings should be brief, but sufficiently explanatory. Standard abbreviations of SI units of measurement should be added in parentheses wherever they are in need.

Illustrations:

Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors Quantities and units must be designated using SI units wherever possible (e.g. Pa instead of bar). The metric system is to be used. Numerical values of quantities are given with decimal points (e.g. U = 112.35 V). Concentrations should be given exclusively as mass or amount-of-substance concentrations mg/Kg or µg/L. The use of ppm, ppb, ppt, volume and weight percentages is to be avoided IUPAC rules must be used for designating chemical compounds. In some fields, e.g. pharmacology, International Non-Proprietary Names (INN) or generic names may be used. The use of trade names alone to identify such compounds, e.g. drugs, medicines or pesticides, is not allowed. All formulas, equations, and symbols should be consistently formatted through the whole paper, including figures

Alcohol is one of the oldest drugs that humans have used since the beginning of civilization. Alcohol abuse is one of the major healths, social and economic problems facing the world as significant number of people are affected due to severe fatal disease caused by alcohol. Studies show that alcohol is linked to more than 60 disease conditions, including liver disease and mouth, food pipe, bowel and breast cancer[1]. In England in 2006-7, alcohol was estimated to account for £2.7 billion of NHS expenditure, almost double the figure in 2001 [2-4]. Alcohol is estimated to be the third highest of 26 risk factors for ill health in the European Union, and the World Health Organization (WHO) identifies the need for the formulation of ‘effective public health orientated counter-measures in order to minimize the harm caused by alcohol use’ [3,5,6].

Ethics and Malpractice Statement

Duties of Editors

The Executive Editor or/and Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Medical and Health Sciences.com, is responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published in current volume of the journal. He may be guided by the policies of the journal’s editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism.

An editor at any time evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to the nature of the authors or the host institution including race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor’s own research without the express written consent of the author.

When genuine errors in published work are pointed out by readers, authors, or members of editorial board, which do not render the work invalid, a correction (or erratum) will be published as soon as possible. The online version of the paper may be corrected with a date of correction and a link to the printed erratum. If the error renders the work or substantial parts of it invalid, the process of retraction can be initiated. In such case, the retraction communication with explanations as to the reason for retraction will be published as soon as possible. Consequently, the message about retraction will be indicated on article page and in pdf version of retracted article.

If serious concerns are raised by readers, reviewers, or others, about the conduct, validity, or reporting of academic work, editor will initially contact the authors and allow them to respond to the concerns. If that response is unsatisfactory, Journal of FisheriesSciences.com will take this to the institutional level.

Retracted papers will be retained online, and they will be prominently marked as a retraction in all online versions, including the PDF, for the benefit of future readers.

Duties of Reviewers

Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper.

Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process.

Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.

Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the editor’s attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

Editor will take reviewer misconduct seriously and pursue any allegation of breach of confidentiality, non-declaration of conflicts of interest (financial or non-financial), inappropriate use of confidential material, or delay of peer review for competitive advantage. Allegations of serious reviewer misconduct, such as plagiarism, will be taken to the institutional level.

Duties of Authors

Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.

Authors should ensure that submitted work is original and has not been published elsewhere in any language, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

Applicable copyright laws and conventions should be followed. Copyright material (e.g. tables, figures or extensive quotations) should be reproduced only with appropriate permission and acknowledgement.

An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors.

When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
