Types of Articles
Research Articles: New, significant, innovative and original findings are suitable as Research Articles.
Notes: Papers containing new facts and important data derived from incomplete or partial studies may be suitable as a Note. In general, a Note should not exceed 4 printed pages.
Communications: Communications should contain new and important information that would be of interest to readers of the Journal, making urgent publication is desirable. An explanatory statement is required for urgent publication. In general, a Communication should not exceed 2 printed pages.
Reviews: Regular Reviews: Describing the research results of the author.
Please read and follow these instructions carefully; doing so will ensure that the publication of your manuscript is as rapid and efficient as possible. The Publisher reserves the right to return manuscripts that are not prepared in accordance with these instructions
Manuscripts should be prepared double-spaced in Microsoft Word, with pages numbered consecutively, using Times New Roman font at 12 points. The volume of the manuscript (references, summaries, illustrations, and tables) is preferably no more than 13 double-spaced pages.
It is essential that the paper be written in clear, proper English. Manuscripts requiring substantial improvement of English usage may be returned to the author(s) for revision before the review process. If English is not your native language, we recommend that you ask a native English speaker to read over your manuscript before submitting. The authors should consult a recent issue of the journal for style (see Template of Final Paper). The editors reserve the right to adjust style to certain standards of uniformity.
Submission of manuscripts
Authors should submit articles in Microsoft Word through the ONLINE MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION CENTRE.
Licence and permissions
It is a condition of publication that authors grant an exclusive licence to Scholarlink Resource Centre Limited Journals. This ensures that requests from third parties to reproduce articles are handled efficiently and consistently, and will allow the article to be as widely disseminated as possible. In assigning copyright, authors may use their own material in other publications, provided that the journal is acknowledged as the original place of publication, and Scholarlink Journals is notified in writing and in advance.
Work submitted for publication must be original, previously unpublished, and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. If previously published figures, tables, or parts of text are to be included, the copyright-holder’s permission must have been obtained prior to submission.
All submissions should be accompanied by a cover letter that includes a brief overview of the manuscript and the corresponding and contacting author contact information including full name, e-mail address, phone number, and mailing address (corresponding author and contacting author). See a typical example of a cover letter.
Format of Preparation
The Title should be concise but informative. The arrangement of words is important for indexing purposes. A short running title should be provided.
The name(s), including one forename in full, affiliation(s), full address(es), and e-mail address(es) of the author(s) should follow the title of the paper. In the covering letter the corresponding author and his/her telephone and fax numbers should be indicated.
The Abstract should be a self-contained summary of the paper, presenting concisely the objectives of the work reported, methodology, results, and conclusions. It consists of no more than 200 words in one paragraph.
The Keyword should have a minimum of five and maximum of seven words.
The Introduction should be a review of pertinent work, should cite appropriate references, and should also include a clear statement of the object of investigation.
The Materials and Methods should include the methods and methodology the research was carried out. A clear description or specific original reference is required for all analytical and statistical procedures and a statement of the results of the statistical analysis should justify the interpretations and conclusions.
The Results and Discussion
The Results are presented in the form of tables or figures when feasible and the text should explain or elaborate on the tabular data, but numbers should not be repeated within the text. Sufficient data, all with some index of variation attached, should be presented to allow the reader to interpret the results of the experiment.
The Discussion should interpret the results clearly and concisely in terms of mechanisms and significance and also should integrate the research findings with the body of previously published literature to provide the reader with a broad base on which to accept or reject the hypotheses tested. Focused on the interpretation of the results rather then a repetition of the results section.
Highlight the significant/unique findings of the research under conclusion. Precise whole discussion portion in a significant manner and give some Recommendations where necessary.
Special characters (e.g., Greek and symbols) should be inserted using the symbols palette available in this font.
Complex equations should be entered using Math-Type or an equation editor.
Tables and figures can be placed in the text.
Figures, Tables and Charts/Diagrams
The final quality of your illustrations as they appear in the journal, depends on the quality with which you send them to us. If poor resolutions figures are sent, poor quality images are reproduced.
As a general, manipulate images as little as possible, so as to avoid losing resolution, and always accompany your submission with original format of the file before exporting to other formats such as JPG, JPEG, EPS (for photograph and screen dumps) PDF (for line drawings).
Illustrations should be prepared in their final format (that is no enlarging or reducing will be necessary) and to fit into the print area of the journal (127 mm × 200 mm). All illustrations must be clearly numbered and provided with the title and the name(s) of the author(s). The appropriate place for each illustration in the text should be indicated in the margin. If necessary, the top of the figure should be indicated. All illustrations must have self-explanatory legends. The captions to illustrations should be listed separately. Dense shading for background should be avoided. The lettering (upper- and lowercase letters, italic, bold) should follow the usage in the text. Different parts of a figure should be marked by lowercase letters in parentheses. The size of symbols and lettering should not be smaller than 1.5 mm.
Make sure that any artwork is at the appropriate, minimum, resolution: 300 dpi for halftones and greyscale, 600 dpi for combinations (line art and halftones together), and 600 dpi for line art.
Colour illustrations are accepted if they are essential to the presentation. The images should be in CMYK mode (resolution at least 300 dpi). Authors will be asked to cover the full cost incurred in colour printing. Further information concerning colour illustrations can be obtained from the Executive Editor.
