Review Process

All manuscripts are subject to review and are expected to meet standards of academic excellence. Manuscripts will be reviewed by peer-reviewers, whose identities will remain anonymous to the authors.

Based on the reviewer’s comments, the organizing committee will take one of the following decisions:

  • Accept without revisions
  • Accept upon addressing the recommended modifications
  • Reject the paper

Article Structure

This structure is not mandatory, and you can incorporate your own structure depending on your research and method you have used. However, there should be an abstract, introduction, outcome of your research, and conclusion.

The manuscript should contain an abstract. The abstract should be self-contained and citation-free and should not exceed 225 words.

State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature review or a summary of the results.

Method and Materials

Provide sufficient details about the method you used to reach the conclusion. Materials already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.

Results should be clear and concise.

This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

The main conclusions of the study must be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.

All acknowledgments (if any) should be included at the very end of the paper before the references and may include supporting grants, presentations, and so forth.

Reference List

Should be prepared using Harvard-style

Examples:  Reference list

End Notes, Tables, Appendixes
Tables should be cited consecutively in the text. Every table must have a descriptive title and if numerical measurements are given, the units should be included in the column heading. Vertical rules should not be used.

Submission Process:

A separate cover sheet indicating authorship, academic or professional affiliation, and both a current mailing and e-mail address should be included. Articles should NOT be under consideration by any other publication at the time of submission. Time required for review will generally depend upon the article’s topic; a general rule of thumb is 3-6 months, but more time may be required for submissions of an esoteric nature.  All foreign words and phrases must be transliterated according to the Library of Congress system—diacritical marks will not be reproduced, and should not be included.
