Language:

The language of the manuscript must be in English.

Length of Manuscript

The length of the paper should be between 7000 - 10000 words (including list of references and annexures) and manuscript containing more than 10000 words will be rejected. Articles should be typed using 10 font size (Times New Roman) in 1.5 spaces on one side of A4 paper with normal margins (Top 1”, Bottom 1”, Left 1” and Right 1”). Authors are urged to write as concisely as possible, but not at the expense of clarity.

Title Page

The title page is a separate page before the text. It should include the following information:

Title

The title should be concise and informative. Abbreviations and formulae should be avoided where possible.

Author’s Names and Affiliations

Indicate the initials and then the last name. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and the e-mail address of the corresponding author.

Corresponding Author

Indicate who is willing to handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing, publication, and also post-publication. Ensure that telephone numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address.

Abstract

A concise and factual abstract is required (maximum length of 350 words). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results, and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. References should be avoided in the abstract.

Keywords

Immediately after the abstract, a maximum of 5 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of') should be provided. Keywords should be presented. The keywords should be arranged in alphabetical order.

Introduction

This section should be concise, with no subheadings, and provide a background to the research problem, present the research problem with sufficient justification and objective/s.

Literature Review

This section should provide a sufficient evaluation of theoretical/empirical literature to identify knowledge gaps.

Materials and Methods

This section should contain adequate and detailed information about all the procedures and steps are followed.

Results and Discussion

This section should be described on the results and outputs of the research work.

Conclusions

This should clearly explain the important conclusions of the work highlighting its significance, relevance and values.

Table and Figures

Please note that the article will be published in black and white. Present tables and figures within the article, not at the end of the article. Tables should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numbering (Table 1, Table 2, etc.) and must have corresponding references in the main text. Tables should also have appropriate and concise headings. All figures and illustrations, as in the case of tables, should be numbered consecutively as ‘Figures’ (Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.) with corresponding references in the main text. Figures should also have appropriate and concise headings.

Reference: Authors are requested to follow APA format of referencing.

  • Important: Please carefully check any specific referencing requirements.
  • Begin your reference list on a new page and title it References, then centre the title on the page.
  • Double-space your reference list and have a hanging indent
    • Left align the first line of each reference with subsequent lines indented to the right to width by 5 -7 spaces or 1.25 cm.
  • All of the references in the reference list must also be cited in the text.
  • All references cited in text must also be included in the reference list (unpublished items, such as personal correspondence, are an exception).
  • List the references in alphabetical order by author surname/family name according to the first listed author. (Note: the order of the authors on a document is important do not rearrange them)
  • Where there are two articles with the same authors and date, order the references alphabetically by article title and add a letter suffix to the year of publication (e.g. 2003a, 2003b...).
  • Provide organisation names in full, unless they are obviously recognisable as abbreviations (e.g. APA for American Psychological Association).
  • Do not add full stops to URLs (e.g. http://www.lib.monash.edu.au/)
  • In an article, chapter or book title capitalize only the first word of the title and of the subtitle, if any, and any proper nouns. (Note: book titles should be italicised)
  • In a periodical, journal, or serial title, give the title in full, in upper and lower case letters. The title should be italicised (e.g. Harvard Business Review)
  • APA requires use of an en dash between pagination numbers. An en dash is longer and thinner than a hyphen. Type in an en dash, or if an en dash is unavailable on the keyboard, use a single hyphen. In either case there is no space before or after. We recommend consulting your faculty staff to determine their requirements.
  • Check the reference details against the actual source - you are indicating that you have read that source when you cite it.
  • Be consistent with your referencing style across the document.

List references in alphabetical order. Each listed reference should be cited in text, and each text citation should be listed in the References section.
