  1. Abstract

Your abstract should give readers concise information about the content of your manuscript. It should be informative, accessible and state the main results obtained and conclusions drawn. The abstract should be complete in itself – no table numbers, figure numbers, references or equations should be referred to. It should be suitable for direct inclusion in abstracting services and should not normally be more than 300 words.

3-6 keywords should be given which identify your study.

Main body of the paper

The body of the paper could be divided into sections. Sections should be numbered with Arabi numerals. Subsections should be numbered1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc., and sub-subsections (third level) 1.1.1, 1.1.2, etc. Appendices should be numbered A, B, etc. Equations, tables, figures, and references should follow a sequential numerical scheme in order to ensure logical development of the subject matter. It is helpful for readers if your article is concise, but clarity is essential. Short sentences and paragraphs make reading easier. You should aim for consistency within your article in matters such as hyphenation and spelling. All acronyms and abbreviations should be clearly explained when they first appear in the text, and all units used should be consistent throughout the article.

  1. Introduction

This should be concise and describe the nature of the problem under investigation and its background. It should also set your work in the context of previous research, citing relevant references. Introductions should expand on highly specialized terms and abbreviations used in the article to make it accessible for readers.

  1. Methods

This section should provide sufficient details of the experiment, simulation, statistical test or analysis carried out.

  1. Results

The results section should detail the main findings and outcomes of your study. You should use tables only to improve conciseness or where the information cannot be given satisfactorily in other ways such as histograms or graphs. Tables should be numbered serially and referred to in the text by number (table 1, etc.). Each table should have an explanatory caption which should be as concise as possible.

  1. Discussion

In this section discuss the significance of the results and compare them with previous work using relevant references.

  1. Conclusion

This section should be used to highlight the novelty and significance of the work, and any plans for future relevant work.

  1. Acknowledgment

All sources of financial support for the project must be disclosed in the acknowledgment section. The name of the funding agency and the grant number should be given.

  1. Conflict of Interest

All authors and co-authors are required to disclose any potential conflict of interest when submitting their article (e.g. employment, consulting fees, research contracts, stock ownership, patent licenses, honoraria, advisory affiliations, etc).

  1. References

Write your references in APA style only. Some example for your ready reference are given below:

Labeling References in Text

  1. In the Vancouver numerical system, references are numbered sequentially through the text. The numbers should be given in square brackets, e.g. [1], [4-7] etc., and one number can be used to refer to several instances of the same reference. The reference list at the end of the article then lists the references in numerical order, not alphabetically.

  2. In the Harvard alphabetical system
  • The name of the author appears in the text together with the year of publication, e.g. (Smith 2001) or Smith (2001) (as appropriate).

  • Where there are only two authors both names should be given in the text, e.g. (Smith and Jones 2001) or Smith and Jones (2001);

  • However, if there are more than two authors only the first name should appear followed by et al: (Smith et al2001) or Smith et al (2001).

  • Different works by one author or group of authors in the same year they should be differentiated by including a, b, etc after the date (e.g. 2001a). If you refer to different pages of the same article, the page number may be given in the text, e.g. Smith (2001, p 39).

  • The reference list at the end of your article using this system should be in alphabetical order.

Note: –journal names should be abbreviated according to the list of serial title word abbreviation of the ISDS (International Serial Data System) if available, otherwise full journal names are preferable.
