During the revision (both major and /or minor revision), authors will be requested to submit the final version based on the journal guidelines.

Title page
The manuscript title should be concise and informative, must be in sentence case not exceeding 15 words.

Both research and review manuscript should have one paragraph abstract not exceeding 250 words. The abstract should provide an overview of the work. We strongly recommend using structured abstract in the following style, but without subtitles: (1) Background: Raise the question in a broader context and illustrate the purpose of the study; (2) Methods: Briefly describe the main methods or treatments used; (3) Results: Summarize the main findings of the article; (4) Conclusion: Provide key conclusions or explanations.

This should not be a review of the area in question, but a clear statement should end it in question. Citations should be quoted by the last name of the first author followed by the year. For example, single author (Author, year), two authors (author and author, year), more than two authors (first author et al., year).

Materials and Methods
The experimental section should be concise but complete information about materials used, analytical techniques and statistical procedures. This section should be transparent, and it should give way to readers to repeat the experiments. If authors used modified experimental methods of previous reports, it should be mentioned, and citations must be given. Studies involving animals or humans and other studies requiring ethical approval should include ethical clearance numbers with the authority that provided approval and the related code of ethics.

Results and discussion
Natural Resources for Human Health strongly encourage authors to combine results and discussion section. The results should not repeat the table values extensively and avoid lengthy explanations of table and figure values in the text. Authors are advised not to repeat any sentences from the introduction and discuss the results clearly how they can be interpreted from the previous reports ‎and the working hypotheses. The findings and their implications should be discussed ‎ comprehensively.
