Abstract and Keywords
The abstract should be concise representation of the article. It 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. Non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. The abstract should not exceed 350 words and be written in one paragraph. Immediately after the abstract, please provide a maximum of 6 keywords. These keywords should not already used in the title which will be used for indexing purposes.

The introduction section should clearly state the hypothesis or identify the problem for with research was designed. It should give enough justification/importance of the study and provide an adequate background avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. At the end, it should contain specific objectives of the work.

Material and methods
Detail of the materials used and step-wise description of the methodology followed should be mentioned. 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. A common fault in this section is the double presentation of the results that already exists in the tables and figures.

This section should interpret the data presented I the result section, especially the key findings related to the problem or hypothesis taken in the introduction. This section should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. Extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short conclusions section.

In this section, authors may express acknowledgments to those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.).

Table and Figures
Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Tables can be placed either next to the relevant text in the article, or on separate page(s) at the end. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Please avoid using vertical rules. Ensure that each illustration has a caption. A caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used.

There are no strict requirements on reference formatting at submission. References can be in any style or format as long as the style is consistent. Where applicable, author(s) name(s), journal title/book title, chapter title/article title, year of publication, volume number/book chapter and the pagination must be present.

Citation in text
Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Citation of a reference as ‘in press’ implies that the item has been accepted for publication.

Web references
As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed. Any further information, if known (DOI, author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list.

Reference style
Text: All citations in the text should refer to: Single author: the author’s name (without initials, unless there is ambiguity) and the year of publication; Two authors: both authors’ names and the year of publication; Three or more authors: first author’s name followed by ‘et al.’ and the year of publication. Citations may be made directly (or parenthetically). Groups of references should be listed first alphabetically, then chronologically. Examples: ‘as demonstrated (Allan, 2000a, 2000b, 1999; Allan and Jones, 1999). Kramer et al. (2010) have recently shown ….’

Reference Lists
References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters ‘a’, ‘b’, ‘c’, etc., placed after the year of publication.
