International Journal of Secondary Metabolite (IJSM) purposes the publication of articles related to secondary metabolites of plant and allied organisms (algae, fungi, and lichens). IJSM is an open access, international peer-reviewed academic journal published quarterly and electronically. The journal is the goal to improve the research culture and help knowledge spread rapidly in the academic world by providing a common academic platform in the scope. The journal is published in English.
IJSM is published 4 issues per year (March, June, September, December), and accepting manuscripts related to secondary metabolites of plant and allied organisms (algae, fungi, and lichens). It is also accepted in studies on primary metabolites such as proteins, enzymes, carbohydrates and fats. Research areas covered in the journal are phytochemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology, ethnopharmacology, biological and pharmacological activities (Antimicrobial activity, Antioxidant activity, Antiulcer activity, Anti-convulsant activity, Anti-anxiety activity, Antidiabetic activity, Anti-gout activity, Antiprotozoal activity, Anti-inflammatory activity, Antispasmodic activity, Antiparasitic activity, Anti-mutagenic activity, Anticholinesterase activity, Antidepressant activity, Hepatoprotective activity, Anti-anxiety activity, Anti-convulsant activity, Anti-spasmolytic activity, Anticancer activity). IJSM welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence. Authors are required to frame their research questions and discuss their results in terms of major questions in plant biology. Contribution is open to researchers of all nationalities. The following types of articles will be considered:
1. Research articles: Original research in various fields of plant and allied organisms (algae, fungi, and lichens) will be evaluated as research articles.
2. Research notes: These include articles such as preliminary notes on a study or manuscripts new records on secondary metabolites and primary metabolites such as proteins, enzymes, carbohydrates and fats.
3. Reviews: Reviews of recent developments, improvements, discoveries, and ideas in various fields of plant and allied organisms (algae, fungi, and lichens) will be requested by the editor or advisory board.
4. Letters to the editor: These include opinions, comments relating to the publishing policy of the International Journal of Secondary Metabolite, news, and suggestions. Letters are not to exceed one journal page.
