The International Journal of Information Research and Review (IJIRR) is a monthly published online Research Journal, which published original research articles, reviews, mini-reviews, short communications, case report and notes dealing with Life Sciences, Medical & Clinical Sciences, Physical Sciences, Health Sciences, Social Sciences, and others. All articles are subject to rapid peer review. Those of high quality (not previously published and not under consideration for publication in another journal in any form) will be published. International Journal of Information Research and Review (IJIRR) publishes the following types of Articles:
1. Original Research Articles
2. Review Articles
4. Short Communications
5. Case Report
6. Notes/ Others
ORIGINAL RESEARCH ARTICLES FORMAT
Research articles should not be more than 10-12 pages. The accepted format of all article is MS Word (2003, 2007 or above) with English language only. Illustrations (Figures & Tables) and images must be inserted in the article at the appropriated position they should appear when published.

Research article should be concisely typewritten in 1.5 spaces in A4 sized paper size with 1 inch margins (each side). The research article shall be prepared in Times New Roman using a font size of 12 and title shall be font size of 12, bold face capitals. All section titles in the article shall be in font size 12, bold face capitals and subtitles in each section shall be in font size 12, bold face lower case.

2. Abstract & Keywords
4. Materials and Methods
5. Results and Discussion
The title should be as bold face lower case (font size 14) & short as possible on the first page and provide precisely indicate the nature of the work in the communication. Names of the authors full name including designation, department, affiliation in normal face, upper case (font size 12) followed by the please mention “*Address For correspondence” at the bottom left corner of the title page. The Corresponding Author and Main Author of the articles must be marked with an asterisk*. In addition the corresponding author must include E-mail address at the bottom left corner of the title page. If any of the co-authors are from different organizations, their addresses too should be mentioned and indicated using numbers after their names. Maximum 5 authors should be allowed.
Abstract should be start on a new page after the title page and should be typed in single-space to distinguish it from the Introduction. Abstracts should briefly reflect all aspects of the study, as most databases list mainly abstracts and references should be avoided. The abstract section not more than 250 words.
Must provide 4-7 appropriate keywords after the abstract
The introduction should not be an extensive literature review although it should provide sufficient background information for the reader to understand and evaluate the results of the present study.
Materials and Methods
Describe the materials used in the experiment, department, place, month, year of experimentation etc. Describe the methods implied for collection of data in short.
Results and Discussion
This segment should be described as concisely as possible in one of the following ways: text, table(s), figure(s), or graph(s). The reproducibility and statistical significance of measurements, material or biological data, must be included where relevant. The Discussion should provide an interpretation of the results and their significance with regard to previously published work. There should not be any significant repetition of the experimental procedures or reiteration of the introduction.
This should state clearly the main conclusions of the research and give a clear explanation of their importance and relevance. A short, paragraph summarizing the most important finding(s) of the research is required.
The source of any financial support, gifts, technical assistance and advice received for the work being published must be indicated in the Acknowledgments section.
The authors are responsible for the accuracy of the bibliographic information (references). It should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text (not in alphabetic order). A list should be included on separate 1.5 spaced pages at the end of the text. For the proper abbreviations of the journal titles, refer to “Chemical Abstracts”. The style and punctuation of the references should confirm to the following examples:
Verma P, Verma SK, and Mathur A. Title of article. J Pharm Sci Res, 2013; 4(7): 2900-2906.

Tables should be numbered consecutively (Table 1, Table 2 etc) and each table must paste on appropriated position. Each table should be typed using a table format only. (i.e., each variable must be typed into a separate cell in the table) with only horizontal lines above and below the table column headers and at the bottom of the table. No vertical lines should be included in any table. The title should be typed at the top of the table in the sentence case format, i.e., only the first name should be in capital letters; as appropriate. Any Foot note should be typed at the bottom of the table in italic.

A copy of that permission release must be submitted with your article.
Review articles should not be more than 6-8 pages and contain comprehensive coverage of relevant literature. Review articles should preferably be written by scientists who have in-depth knowledge of the topic. All format requirements are similar to those applicable to Original research articles.
The research and technical communications section of this journal (maximum 1,500 words) is open to interesting results worthy of publication without requiring extensive introduction and discussion. This portion should be organized as follows: Abstract, Introduction, Materials and methods, Results and discussion (combined). Not more than 10-15 references should be mentioned. Tables, figures and references are to be arranged in the same way as for original research articles. Brevity of presentation is essential for this section.
Not more than 10 pages with references should be mentioned. Tables, figures and references are to be arranged in the same way as for original research articles. Brevity of presentation is essential for this section.
