Publishing made easy. Manuscripts should be submitted online only. This can only be done as part of a supporting seminar style video recording that explains the research contained within the manuscript (both are free of charge and are made available free of charge to other users).
Aims and scope
SeminarStreams-Academic provides an international and free platform for the publication of articles describing important scholarly subject matter, including Chemistry, Life Sciences & Molecular Medicine, Engineering, Economics, Physics, and more. SeminarStreams-Academic aims to present seminars and manuscripts that represent advancement in a given field, and facilitate scientists in getting their research in the public domain for free and instantly. At SeminarStreams-Academic your research will be peer reviewed. However, it will be done in a manner that is transparent and fit for the 21st century. As such, the author is in full control when his or her research is published given that logged-in members will review the paper after publication on our site. This will also instantly eliminate any concerns about “research being scooped”. In essence it will guarantee credit, where credit is due.
Types of manuscripts
SeminarStreams-Academic accepts papers that present original research or reviews that have not been published previously. Papers should be intelligible to as wide an audience as possible. Please note, that the editorial board at SeminarStreams-Academic reserves the right to remove inappropriate material or manuscripts that cannot adequately be assessed because of a poor standard of English.
Organisation of manuscripts
The manuscript of an original or review article should be formatted and saved as a word document
(download pre-formatted document (docx) or (windows 97 – 2003) and populate this with your own content). Pictures should be of good quality, with a minimum of 600dpi.
Authors, should write in a concise style, although sufficient information must always be included to permit replication of the experimental results and to support the conclusions that have been drawn.
Articles (original research and reviews) should be arranged in the following order:
Title page: The title should be concise and understandable by general readers.
The title page should also be headed by the names of all authors (the following format should be adhered to: for each author one forename in full and other forenames being given as initials. For example: David J. R. BECKHAM, Victoria C. ADAMS and Kiefer W. F. D. G. R. SUTHERLAND)
In addition, the full name and full postal address of the institute where the work was carried out should be included. If there is more than one organisation involved in the work, authors' names should be linked to the appropriate establishment by the use of the following symbols *, †, ‡, §, and ¶. The corresponding author's telephone number and e-mail address should also be presented.
Abstract page: The abstract should not exceed 200 words. It should summarize the aim of the report, methods of approach and significance of the results. It should be written so as to be intelligible to the non-specialist.
Important: the title and the abstract should clearly express the key points of your paper.
1. Introduction: The introduction should summarise briefly the background and aims, and end with a very brief statement of what has been achieved by the work.
2. Experimental design & methods: This section should include your materials and experimental details, leaving the Results section for experimental results. Please note that this section should be detailed enough to allow others to reproduce the results.
3. Results: The results section should present the experiments that support the conclusions in the Discussion. The Results section should conform to a high standard. Elaborate discussions, arguments or speculations should be avoided and not be placed in this section.
4. Discussion: The Discussion section should be separated from the Results section. This section allows authors to elaborate, and to put in context the significance of their results.
5. Acknowledgements: This should include declarations of interest (if any). In addition this section should be utilised to acknowledge the charities or agencies that funded the research (including the grant number).
6. References: In the text, references should be cited by author and year (for example: (Beckham et al., 2010)). Published articles and those in press (state the journal that has accepted them) may be included. Personal communications (V. C. Adams, personal communication) should be authorized in writing by those involved, and unpublished data should be cited as (K. W. F. D. G. R. Sutherland, unpublished data). Please note, that the FREE academic reference management programme Mendeley can cite recorded video seminars too (simply click on the Mendeley button located on the right hand side of the video screen for individual seminars)
At the end of the article, references should be listed alphabetically according to the first-named author. The full titles of papers and books or abbreviated journal names and the first and last page numbers should be given. Particular attention should be taken to ensure that references conform to the SeminarStreams-Academic style.
Example of reference style is given below:
Boisvert F. M., Lam Y. W., Lamont D., Lamond A. I. (2010) A quantitative proteomics analysis of subcellular proteome localization and changes induced by DNA damage. Mol Cell Proteomics. 9, 457-470.
7. Figure legends: The legends should be clear and concise, containing enough information to be understood without referring to the text. All symbols and abbreviations used in the figures should be explained
8. Tables: You may either include the tables in the main text or save as separated files.
Tables and figures
Tables and figures should have a brief title and be numbered.
Abbreviations should not be listed in a special section. They should be defined in parentheses after their first mention. Standard units of measurements and chemical symbols of elements may be used without definition.
Length of manuscript
In general, up to seven figures or tables should be presented. Authors are encouraged to make every effort to remain within a limit of 15 pages. Authors of review articles should also adhere to this outline. The length of a Commentary should be less than 30,000 characters including a short abstract.
Supplementary data may be attached to the manuscript at the time of submission. This supporting information should be clearly referred to in other sections of the manuscript.
Submission of manuscripts
Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://upload.seminarstreams.com/ .
Reviewing of manuscripts
All articles, including review articles, can be reviewed by all logged-in members of the SeminarStreams-Academic site. This will make the review process transparent and accountable, whilst publication of the article occurs simultaneously (publication date is time of submission). Appropriate comments and responses including revisions of articles will be posted subsequently.
Submit your research, review, or commentary article online including a recorded video (please note, that uploading a recorded video of a seminar, or lab meeting, or workshop that discusses the article is required. Videos may be recorded using a standard home video camera). The entire publication process is free (including the video streaming service), but cannot be completed unless all documents and associated material has been submitted.
Once submitted, manuscripts, recordings, and other associated material become the copyright of SeminarStreams.com. However, Authors have SeminarStreams’ permission to distribute their material for non-commercial purposes without seeking permission.
