Structure and Preparation of the Manuscript
Science INSIGHTS® has a special format for manuscript preparation. Please refer to the following guidelines before submitting your manuscript to the Journal. Cover Letter: All manuscripts need to include a Cover Letter to speak their findings in one sentence and declare it is merely submitted to the Journal, and describe the conflict of interest, and all authors have approved for the submission. It also should include the information of the corresponding author(s). At last, the cover letter needs to be signed by the corresponding author(s). Science INSIGHTS® accepts the scanned signature.
Title Page: The Title Page should include all the general information about the manuscript as follows:
Abstract or Summary: Science INSIGHTS® has different requirements on the summary of different types of papers, so please refer to the above-mentioned publication categories for the type-specific information in this section.
Introduction: This is specifically for the Hypothesis, Review, Reports, Short Communication, and Article. All these types of papers are needed to start with an introduction of fewer than 1,000 words. In this section, generally, an overall background of the work, and reasons you did that work, and questions you tested should be presented. Please follow the special format for each type of paper.
Materials and Methods: For the Short Communication and Article, you need to provide repeatable methods you performed and available tools or materials you used in your work. No limitation on the word count in this part, but you still need to consider the total limit of the Short Communication words (less than 5,000).
Results: This is also the specific feature for Short Communication and Article. Keep in mind that you do not repeat your results with a description depicted in the figures or tables. Describe your data concisely in a readable manner.
Discussion: Especially for the Short Communication and Article too, please discuss your work on each point only if you think it is necessary. Discussion is not always the longer, the better. Science INSIGHTS® requires the authors to present their work in a readable format.
References: Science INSIGHTS® has special requirements for references. Considering the copyright and efforts the authors made, the Journal requires to list all the authors of the reference. The references should appear in sequence in Arabic numbers in parentheses like “(1)” in the text. Please format your references as the following examples:

Figure Legend: Please provide a detailed Figure Legend on each figure. It should include introducing a brief method from which you got your data and statistical P values. In each figure, the symbols should be used as follows in sequence as is needed: *, †, ‡, ¶, §, ||, ¦¦, **, ††, ‡‡, ¶¶, §§. Besides, the abbreviations that appeared in the figure should be spelled out at the end of the legend.
All figures must be high enough in the definition. To maintain the publication's high quality, Science INSIGHTS® will ask the authors to provide the data for redrawing the figures in the Journal’s uniform style. We encourage color figures in the papers. No additional payment is required for the color figures. Our professional illustrators will redraw some specific graphics, and the illustrators will sign the drawn-works for copyright purposes.
Except for it is a special study category, statistical analyses should be reported if applicable. Which software you used with what versions, what kinds of methods you consulted, and what P-value you set. Our expert statisticians will review the statistical analyses before the paper is considered for publication.
