Article 1. (Classification of Papers) Papers are classified as research papers and review papers. (Review Papers) After consulting with the Editor-in Chief and the Editorial Board members of the related subjects, the Editor-in-Chief can invite persons to submit Review Paper(s)
Article 2. (Submission of Manuscripts) Manuscripts should be submitted in triplicate (along with original figures and a diskette containing the file of the manuscript) to the JCNS by mail. Alternatively the submission can be made by electronic mail. It is recommended that the manuscripts are in the Word format.
Article 3. (Language) The language of JCNS is English.
Article 4. (Format) The manuscript should begin with the title and be followed in order by the names of the authors and their affiliations, the abstract, the electronic mail address, telephone and fax numbers of the principal author, the text, the references, the table captions, the tables, the figure (photograph) captions, and the figures (photographs).
Article 5. (References) Each reference should include, in the following order, the names of the authors, the title of article, the name of the journal, the volume number, the starting page number, and the year of publication. The reference number is put in brackets [ ]. When books are referred to, the reference should include, in the following order, the names of the authors, the name of the book, the publishing company, the place of publication, the year of publication, and the referenced section. All references should be located at the end of the manuscript.

Article 6. (Figures, Schemes, Charts, and Tables) The list of figure (photograph) captions should appear separately from the figures (photographs). Figures should have a quality necessary for electronic publishing. Figures must include a caption giving the figure number and a brief description, preferably only one or two sentences. The caption should be understandable without reference to the text. It is preferable to place any key to symbols used in the artwork itself, not in the caption. Ensure that any symbols and abbreviations used in the text agree with those in the artwork. Sequences of reactions are called schemes. Schemes may have brief titles describing their contents and footnotes, if needed, for further detail. Groups of structures that do not show reactions are called charts. Charts may have brief titles describing their contents and footnotes, if needed, for further detail. Tables should be used when the data cannot be presented clearly as narrative, when many numbers must be presented, or when more meaningful interrelationships can be conveyed by the tabular format. Tables should supplement, not duplicate, information presented in the text and figures. Tables should be simple and concise. Each table must have a brief (one phrase or sentence) title that describes the contents. The title should be understandable without reference to the text. Details should be put in footnotes, not in the title. Define nonstandard abbreviations in footnotes. Footnotes in tables should be given letter designations and be cited in the table by italic superscript letters. The sequence of letters should proceed by line rather than by column. If a reference is cited both in the text and in a table, a lettered footnote which refers to the numbered reference in the text should be placed in the table. All Figures, Schemes, Charts, and Tables must be mentioned in the text in consecutive order. Figures, Schemes, Charts, and Tables must be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals and placed in the document within the text near the point of first mention.
Article 7. (Acknowledgment) Dedications and notes acknowledging financial or professional assistance to the conduct of research or indicating presentation at a meeting should be brief and placed in the Acknowledgment section. Do not include a separate Funding Sources note.
Article 8. (Notation of Units) Notation of units should follow the international convention
Article 9. (Plagiarism) Manuscripts must be original with respect to concept, content, and writing. It is not appropriate for an author to reuse wording from other publications, including one’s own previous publications, whether or not that publication is cited.
Article 10. (Revised Manuscripts) When a revision is requested after peer review, the authors must return the revised manuscript promptly. One month is allotted for the revision of an Article. After that time, a revised manuscript will be handled as a new submission and will be given a new receipt date.
Article 11. (Resubmission) The resubmission of manuscripts previously considered and declined for publication in JCNS is strongly discouraged and will only be considered under extraordinary circumstances.
Article 12. (Galley Proofs) In principle, the proof-reading should be done by the author(s). The author(s) are not allowed to modify the text while checking the galley proofs.
Article 13. (Publication Date) Manuscripts accepted for publication in JCNS are published online rapidly, whereupon they may be cited by reference to the unique Digital Object Identifier (DOI) that is assigned to each manuscript.
Article 14. (Digital Object Identifier (DOI)) For work published online and work submitted for publication, the DOI can be used in addition to the standard bibliographic information. Authors are given instruction for citing work by DOI in an email communication when manuscript proofs are made available. A DOI is assigned to each manuscript. DOI is an accepted form of citation before and after the article appears in an issue.
Article 15. (Charges for Publication) The author(s) are entitled to 20 reprints of the published paper. If additional reprints or special reprints are requested at the time of proof-reading, the authors must pay an additional fee according to the rules set by the JCNS.
Article 16. (Copyright) The principal author must provide a signed JCNS copyright transfer form with the submission of a manuscript.
