Submission Guidelines

Contributors should limit their length of entries of not more than 2000 words. Authors must carefully formulate the title, keywords and abstract of their articles, as these are key to ensuring readers find your article online through search engines. The text should be double spaced throughout and font size of standard criteria of 12 with Times New Roman style. 

We seek to establish the integrity of the blog and therefore will always examine the submissions for plagiarism. Where an article, for example, is found to have plagiarised from some other sources, work or any copyright material without permission, proper citation or with insufficient acknowledgement, we reserve the right to retract the article.
