Guidelines for Preparation of Manuscript of the Full Paper or Article
1. All manuscripts are expected to be prepared as a single MS Word document with the complete text, references, tables and figures included. Any revised manuscripts prepared for publication should be sent as a single editable Word document.
2. Manuscripts should be written in English with 12 pt Times New Roman font in single line space. Title, author(s), and affiliations should all be included on a title page as the first page of the manuscript file, followed by a 300 word abstract and 3-5 keywords. The order they follow is: Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction.
3. Research/Review articles may be between 3000 and 8000 words. Larger articles may also be considered. Short commentary or Book Review should be between 1000 and 3000 words.
Figure and table requirement:
All figures or photographs must be submitted as jpg or tif files with distinct characters and symbols at 500 dpi (dots per inch). Test your figures by printing them from a personal computer. The online version should look relatively similar to the personal-printer copy. Tables and equations should be in an editable rather than image version. Tables must be edited with Word. Equations must be edited with Equation Editor. Figures, tables and equations should be numbered and cited as Figure 1, Figure 2, Figure 3, etc. in sequence.
How to count page numbers:
Before submission or after acceptance, type your manuscript single spaced, and make all the characters in the text, tables, figure legends, footnotes and references in a single typeface and point size as 10 pt Times New Roman. This will save space, make it easier for reviewers and editors to process the submitted work, and contributes to slowing down global warming by using less paper.
