Authors’ Guidelines

Authors’ Guidelines

Author can submit work on any topic mentioned in the scope of the journal. The content should be original, unique and the presentation must be of potential interest to the readers.

The work described should not have been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis) and should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. It is implied that all author(s) who submit to our peer-reviewed journal agree to this. If any part of the manuscript has been published previously, author must clearly state to the editor.

If plagiarism in any form is detected anytime during the peer review and editorial process, the manuscript will be rejected and a response will be sought from the authors. The editors may contact the author’s head of department or institute and can also choose to contact the author’s funding agency.

Research articles should accompany:

  • Title Page with abstract
  • Main Text
  • Figures
  • Tables
  • References

Keywords must be provided. Acknowledgements must be added in the end before references. We use latest APA formatting and style for references.

There is no limit to the number of authors for a manuscript. Authors are expected to carefully examine the listing order before submitting their manuscript and provide a definitive list at the time of the original submission. First and last authors are important. Equal contribution of two or more authors must be clearly stated. For non-authors who have proof read or evaluated with manuscript, their names should be included in the ‘Acknowledgments’ Section. Any addition, deletion or rearrangement of authors in the authorship list should be made only before the manuscript has been accepted and only if approved by the Editor-in-Chief of the journal. An email from the corresponding author requesting the change needs to be sent to Managing Editor of the journal which should include written confirmation that all authors agree with any addition, removal or rearrangement. Under no circumstances will we consider any changes in the listing of authors once the manuscript has been accepted.
