Maximum length for the abstract section is 250 words in total. In addition provide up to six keywords which encapsulate the principal topics of the paper and categorize your paper under one of these classifications:

  • Research paper

  • Conceptual paper

Headings must be short, with a clear indication of the distinction between the hierarchy of headings. The preferred format is for headings to be presented in bold format, with consecutive numbering.

Notes or Endnotes should be used only if absolutely necessary and must be identified in the text by consecutive numbers, enclosed in square brackets and listed at the end of the article.

All Figures (e.g. models, charts, and diagrams) should be of clear quality, in black and white and numbered consecutively with arabic numerals.

Tables should be typed and included as part of the manuscript. They should not be submitted as graphic elements. Supply succinct and clear captions for all tables, figures and plates. Ensure that any superscripts or asterisks are shown next to the relevant items and have corresponding explanations displayed as footnotes to the table, figure or plate.

References to other publications must be in APA style and carefully checked for completeness, accuracy and consistency. You should cite publications in the text: (Adams, 2006) using the first named author's name or (Adams and Brown, 2006) citing both names of two, or (Adams et al., 2006), when there are three or more authors. At the end of the paper a reference list in alphabetical order should be supplied.

Suggesting Reviewers(Optional)
Authors are requested to provide a list of at least 2 "suggested reviewers" for their manuscript. To do so, authors should complete "Reviewer Suggestion Form" and send it along with their Manuscript.

There should be no conflict of interest between the authors and suggested reviewers. Besides, the suggested reviewers should not be from the same institute that the authors are affiliated with.

It should be noted that the journal editor may or may not assign the manuscript to the suggested reviewers.

Review Process
Papers are initially reviewed by the editors to make sure they meet journal's scope and objectives. Later, in case they are consistent with journal's scope, they will be sent our for blind review process. Although we strive to provide the review result as soon as possible, it might normally take up to 8 weeks for the review.
