IJNPR was formerly known as Natural Products Radiance (NPR), a bimonthly journal started in 2002. Accordingly, Volume 1 to Volume 8 (2002 to 2009) have been brought out under the name Natural Product Radiance . Over the years the contents of NPR have been diversified in response to contributors. So to make its name be responsive, we made efforts to rename it and obtained new name, Indian Journal of Natural Products and Resources (IJNPR) from Registrar Newspaper India (RNI). However, as per their instructions new name shall start from Vol. 1. It will now include more number of papers in each issue. The former title continued to imply a more limited scope but the name change signals an updating of old title to reflect this journal's scope and contents. Considering the interest of our esteemed users/readers in categorized information on varied natural products and resources, NISCAIR launched a quarterly online open access repository entitled, NATURAL PRODUCT AND RESOURCES REPOSITORY (NPARR) , from Jan 2010. Abstracts of papers along with citation and address of corresponding authors will be provided after collection and collation from various core and non-core journals. Authors can send soft copies of abstracts of their published papers, technologies/know-how developed at their institute/university (during current year) for including them under respective group of products/technologies. The salient features and contents of the repository can be accessed through following link:
