Author Guidelines

The Marmara Pharmaceutical Journal publishes original scientific researches, invited reviews, and letters to the editor.
Manuscript files must be prepared in Word, WordPerfect, EPS, LaTeX, text, Postscript, or RTF format. Figures/Images should be embedded in the Manuscript file or sent as external files in TIFF, GIF, JPG, BMP, Postscript, or EPS format.
Preparation of Manuscript

  1. The Title page should contain the article title, authors' name surname, affiliations, and the address for manuscript correspondence (including e-mail address and telephone and/or fax numbers). Pages should be numbered consecutively and organized as follows: Two unstructured abstracts (Turkish and English) not more than 250 words each must be included. The abstracts should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions and the text should be comprehensible when read alone. The use of numbers in the abstract identifying formulas, tables or references and non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided.
    Keywords (1-6 keywords in both Turkish and English, compatible with Index   Medicus: Medical Subject Headings and Turkish Dictionary of Scientific Terms),
    Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion (seperate or together), References.
  2. References. The style of references is that of the Index Medicus. References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first cited in the text and listed at the end of the paper by the appropriate number. List all authors. Follow these examples: In the text: It is now obvious that melatonin has several important functions in mammals (1 -3).
    In the reference list:

    Internet source: 1. FDA Consumer Health Information. How to Dispose of Unused Medicines. Available in:  PDF Document[Accessed: 6 January 2012].
  3. Figures. should be given numerals. All figure legends should be grouped and written on a separate page.
  4. Tables. Tables should be numbered consecutively in order of appearance in the text. Write each table double-spaced on a separate page with a short descriptive title directly above and with essential footnotes below.
  5. Units and unit symbols will be in general accordance with the International System (SI). Name of chemicals should be written according to the IUPAC rules.
  6. Compound characterization data. For all new compounds, evidence to confirm both identity  and purity have to be provided. Evidence for the identity of new compounds should  include , 1H NMR data and either HRMS (resolution 0.001 m/z unit or better) or elemental analysis datato support the molecular formula  assignment.

    For  all new compounds;

    • Product’s systematic (IUPAC) name and the structure number  assigned to the compound should be given.
    • Yields should be reported  as percentages.
    • Melting  point or melting point range should be  reported for solid compounds together with the recrystallization solvent.
    • IR absorption bands diagnostic for major functional  groups should be indicated as IR, υ (cm-1): 3250 (NH str),…etc.
    • Proton  NMR resonance signals should be listed together with the J values for  appropriate signals : 1H NMR resonance signals should be given as 1H  NMR: δ 7.77 (d, J: 7.6 Hz, 1H, ArH), …etc.
    • Carbon NMR resonance signals (if present) should be given as 13C NMR: δ 139.67, (Ar-C),  …etc.
    • HRMS molecular formulae, calculated values  and the ionization method should be reported as HR-MS (EI+), m/z  : 354.1210 (M+, C15H22N4O2S2  requires 354.1186), …etc or HR-MS (FAB+), m/z : 389.1068  (M+Na, C16H22N4O2S2Na),  367.1280 (M+H,C16H23N4O2S2).
    • Found and calculated values for carbon,  hydrogen, and nitrogen (if present) should be given together with  the  proposed formula ; Anal. Calcd. for C18H9Cl3N4OS2  : C, 46.22; H, 1.94; N, 11.98. Found: C, 46.08; H, 2.11; N, 11.81.
