Please also review our licensing and open access conditions. Please carefully read our ethics and policies page before submitting.
All manuscripts are assessed within suitable time and the decision based on all the peer reviewers’ comments, taken by the journal’s Editor-in-Chief. Submissions from the Editor-in-Chief will undergo independent peer-review and will be submitted to another editor for decision on acceptance. Average duration of manuscript processing from submission to final decision is 8-9 weeks.
Preparation of the manuscript
General requirements: Submitted manuscripts must describe original research not previously published and not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
When submitting, the authors should be required to confirm that:
1. The paper, or any version, has not been submitted, or is under review elsewhere
2. The paper will not be submitted elsewhere until the Proc. Mong. Acad. Sci. review process is complete.
3. All authors agree to the paper being submitted (need e-mails for all authors)
4. Persons who submit a manuscript for review should suggest the names and e-mail addresses of up to three specialists as peer reviewers in their cover letter. The Editorial Teams reserve the right to decide whether to accept or decline these suggestions, and is not required to communicate their decision to the authors.
All manuscripts must be clearly written in English (American or British usage is accepted but not a mixture of these).

Organization of manuscript
The manuscript should contain the following information: Title; author(s); Author addresses, plus email addresses of the all authors, ORCID ® of the corresponding author; Abstract; Keywords; Introduction; Experimental and methods; Results, Discussion; Conclusions; Acknowledgements (if any) and References.
The title page should include:
Title: should be informative and concise (no more than 2 lines) and describes the topic of the manuscript in terms understandable to a broad readership. Non-standard acronyms or abbreviations should be avoided. Capitalize only the first word of the title.
Authors: contains names of all authors and their complete mailing and e-mail addresses. The name of the corresponding author should be marked with an asterisk (*).
Author affiliation: The affiliated institutions are to be listed directly below the names of the authors. Include department, institution, and complete address, with the ZIP/postal code, for each author. Multiple affiliations should be marked with superscript Arabic numbers, and they should each start on a new line.
Corresponding author: The name, complete address, telephone number, and e-mail address of the author to whom correspondence and proofs should be sent. Mailing and e-mail addresses will appear in print and online.
Please provide an abstract of 150 to 250 words. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references. Your abstract should be concise and informative and should read well as a standalone piece. The general scope of the article as well as the main results and conclusions should be summarized.
Authors must give up to a maximum of 6 keywords or phrases, which identify the most important subjects covered by the manuscript. Try to avoid overly broad or specialised terms that might be meaningless to a reader. Keywords can include short phrases or terms that are easily recognised by researchers in your field.
The main text of your article should be split into clearly-labelled sections. Usually these will be background, methods, results, discussion and conclusions, however please feel free to use whatever headings and subheadings best suit your article. Abbreviations should be written out in full on first use.
The introduction should provide the necessary background information with succinct words to give a proper perspective for the study. Only the necessary background information should be provided, instead of a detailed review of the field. Previous publications that provided the groundwork for the paper submitted must be mentioned. Subheadings are not used in this section.
Materials and methods
All experimental procedures and compound characterization data need to be included in the manuscript's experimental and method section. This section must be described with sufficient details so that others could repeat the procedures, in conjunction with cited references. Procedures such as appropriate experimental design and statistical methods should be described. Methods for quantification of levels or differences in levels of molecules in biological samples must be described fully and shown to be quantitative and reproducible, using appropriate replicates and statistical analyses. Additional information could be included as Supplementary Data if necessary. If the study characterizes the activity of new compounds, compound structures must be provided.
Results and Discussion
Results should be clear and concise and presented with tables or illustrations for clarity. Discussion focused on the interpretation of the results rather than a repetition of the Results section. This section may be subdivided further if subheadings give the manuscript more clarity.
Should provide the main conclusions, including why the results are significant and advance the field.
Please acknowledge anyone who contributed to the study but did not meet the authorship criteria.
The main manuscript should be submitted as an editable file, not a PDF, once it has been accepted for publication. Since our journal aim to publish as rapidly as possible after acceptance, only a few days may be available for checking proofs.
Authors who may be absent from their normal address should either inform the relevant journal editorial office of their intended whereabouts or make alternative arrangements for their proofs to be checked quickly. Major alterations to content cannot be made at this stage.
One set of page proofs is sent to the corresponding author, showing the final layout of the article as it will appear in the printed journal. Proofs should be read carefully for typesetter's errors and the accuracy of tables, references, mathematical expressions, etc. Publication of an article will be delayed if proofs are not returned by the given deadline.

The data subjects have complete control of this data through their profile, and can request for it to be removed by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
We regularly backup our databases, and we use reliable cloud service providers (Amazon, Google Cloud, Linode) to ensure they are kept securely. Backups are regularly rotated and the old data is permanently deleted. We have a clear internal data handling policy, restricting access to the data and backups to key employees only. In case of a data breach, we will report the breach to the affected users, and to the press/journal contacts within 72 hours.
Personal information is only used to deliver the services provided by the publisher. Personal data is not shared externally except for author names, affiliations, emails, and links to ORCiD and social media accounts (if provided) in published articles and books which are displayed as part of the article/book and shared externally to indexes and databases. If a journal operates under open peer review then the reviewer details are published alongside the reviewer details.
