Paper Title

The title should be of 20 words or less; it should be specific, brief and informative.

Author Details

All the authors’ full names should be listed. Multiple authors’ names are to be separated by a comma. Provide the complete affiliation for each author including academic affiliation (or postal address), city, postcode, country, Email(optional); In the circumstance that there are multiple authors who have contributed to the article the details of the corresponding author should be mentioned with clarity.

Abstract

The abstract should be a concise paragraph of no more than 200 words. It should clearly state the purpose of the article and it should be a summary of all important conclusions.

Keywords

Include 3–8 keywords or short phrases for indexing

Introduction

The introduction should be a brief overview of the relevance and scope of the research, and should especially mention previous advancements in related fields.

Materials and Methods

Present the research design, research type, research duration, inclusion/exclusion criteria, choice of subjects, etc. Completely describe the methodology, including sample collection, processing, lab analysis, statistical tests used for data analysis etc. Use section headings/subheadings in a logical order to entitle each category or method. (e.g. 1, 2; 1.1, 2.1; 1.1.1, 2.1.1…etc.)

Results

Objectively and concisely present and illustrate your findings, using figures/tables, if appropriate. In the main text, quote a particular observation to describe each of your results.

Discussion

In the discussion, you are required to provide an interpretation of your findings and results and to make comparisons with other studies. It is important to describe the significance of your findings. If the results are different from what you expected, then talk about why that may have happened. If your results agree with your research statements, then describe the theory that the evidence supports.

Conclusion

It is important to present the main conclusions of the experimental work. Special emphasis should be given to the contribution of the work to the scientific research and its economic implications.

Appendix

An appendix in mathematical or computational modeling may be included (and is often helpful).

Acknowledgements

The acknowledgement section allows you to express your gratitude and give credit to people who were indirectly involved in the research (e.g., technical support; loans of experimental facilities; comments or suggestions during the creation of the manuscript). It is important that you inform the people who will be included in the acknowledgement of the mention of their name and contributions. Do not include dedications.

TABLE Title

Every table needs to have a unique title which should be concise and clear. Titles are not written in complete sentences.

TABLE Format

It is strongly recommended to use the Table tools in Microsoft Word for inserting a table. It is best to avoid creating tables with the help of the tab key.

TABLE Numbering & Citation

Number and cite tables consecutively according to their appearance in the main body of the text.

FIGURE Caption

Every figure should be captioned. The caption should be concise and should not be typed on the figure area but should be separate. If figures have parts (for example, A and B), make sure all parts are explained in the caption.

FIGURE Numbering & Citation

Sequentially number all images with Arabic numerals. Figures should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order.

FIGURE Resolution

The minimum required resolution of figures is 300 dpi. In the case of fuzzy or jagged figures, authors are required to either replace the figure or send the original figure to us for reproduction.

EQUATION Format

The equation number should be placed in parentheses to the right of the equation. E.g. Hn+1(1/n+1, 1/n+1, …, 1/n+1) (1); Do not create equations as pictures. Use Math Type or insert symbols as normal text.

EQUATION Numbering & Citation

To avoid any sort of confusion the equations should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals so as they can be referred to in the text. Citation for an equation should be made by using “(1),” not “Eq. (1)” or “equation (1),” except at the beginning of a sentence: “Equation (1) is…”

REFERENCES Summary

The reference list must contain all the sources that are cited in the text and all the items that are in the reference list must be cited in the text. The numerical system allows the references to be arranged in the reference list in such a way that they match the order in which they are cited in the text.

REFERENCES In-Text Citation Format

The way to cite references is to simply cite them with consistent reference numbers in square brackets. Reference numbers are not meant to be superscripted. Do not use “Ref. [3]” or “Reference [3]” except at the beginning of a sentence, e.g. “Reference [3] shows …” A. Single Reference
if the author's name appears in the text, place the reference number immediately after the name. E.g. Peter[10] found an innovative scientific phenomenon.
B. Multiple References
1) Put two or four numbers in numerical order and separate them by commas but no spaces. E.g.: [2, 3]
2) Indicate three or more consecutive reference numbers by giving the first and last numbers separated by a hyphen. E.g.: [3-5]

The editors will see whether to (a) send the manuscript out for blind review, (b) request initial revisions prior to the blind review process, or (c) reject the manuscript.

Peer Review

Every manuscript that clears the initial screening will be subjected to strenuous and anonymous peer review by at least 2 peer reviewers. The peer reviewers will remain unknown to the authors. The journal ensures that submissions are not accepted or rejected based on favor, personal preference or bias but only accepted on the basis of merit. The reviewers give the editor a detailed report with their comments on the manuscript and their recommendation. Reviewers are required to complete their reviews within 3-4 weeks. If a paper requires revision, it is the editor’s responsibility to ensure that the revised paper is acceptable.

Proof Reading

The corresponding author will receive electronic proofs via email. The final version of the manuscript are the page proofs that are provided to the corresponding author. Other than typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes are allowed to be made at the proof stage. Only one set of proofs is sent to the authors for corrections and the authors will be responsible for the expense of making excessive alterations of the original manuscripts during proofreading. Proofs are supposed to be checked and returned within 3 days.

Article Processing Charge

These Article Processing Charges (APC) are only charged to authors so as to support publishers in making the published articles freely available to all readers. In order to encourage long-term scientific research authors can avail various discounts on Article Processing Charges (APC).
