Insert your abstract here. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the work, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.

Keywords: Type your keywords here, separated by semicolons, provide a maximum of 6 keywords and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts.

[Article Structure]:  The main text of full paper (in MS Word) must be single line spaced, typed in Times New Roman 12 points and in English, and should be 4 pages in length, with tables, illustrations and references (size A4, 210 mm × 297 mm). The writing should be clear, concise, and grammatically correct. The full paper should include information regarding the rationale and objective of the work, approach and methodology, main results and discussion, and conclusion. Papers less than 3 pages or more than 4 pages in length will not be accepted for review.

[Subdivision – numbered sections]: Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, …), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to ‘the text’. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.


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

Material and methods

Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.


Results should be clear and concise.

Tables and figures should be referred to in the text.


Tables: Tables look best if not all the cells are bordered. Place horizontal borders only under the legend and column headings, and at the Top.

Figures: Make sure that they are clear and understandable.


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 may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.


Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.).

Additional remarks:

Equations should be written using Microsoft Equation and numbered consecutively as they appear within the text. Equation numbers should be Arabic numerals enclosed in parentheses. They should be cited in the text as, for example, Eq. (1), or Eqs. (1)(3). Punctuate equations with commas or periods when they are part of a sentence.

Units of quantitative results should be expressed based on the International System of Units

Citations and References should be indicated using the Author-Date method of citation (Last name of author, Date of publication) inserted in the text in an appropriate place is required. For more than two authors, add “et al.” after the name of the second author, for example: (Frits, 1976; Pandey and Shukla, 2003; Kungsuwan et al., 1996). If the author’s name is part of the sentence, only the date is placed in parentheses: “Frits (1976) argued that…”
