All manuscript must be prepared in letter quality (font size 12) in double-space of A4 paper with margins of one inch on all side using the Times New Roman.

1. Cover Page

Manuscript of a paper should have a cover page providing the title of the paper, the name(s), address(es), phone, fax numbers and email address(es) of all authors and acknowledgements, if any.

2. General Guidelines for Papers

Abstract: Following the cover page, there should be an 'abstract' page, which should contain the title of the paper, the subtitle 'Abstract' and a summary of the paper in single space not exceeding 150 words and Keywords of 3 to 5 words.

Introduction: Briefly describe the objective of the research and explain why it is important.

Methods: Describe the research plan, the materials (or subjects), and the method used. Explain in detail the Data, sample and population, and the variables used.

Results: Present results in a clear, logical sequence. If tables are used, do not duplicate tabular data in text, but do describe important trends and points.

Discussion: Describe the limitations of the research plan, material (or subject), and methods, considering both the objective and the outcome of the study. When results differ from those of previous researchers, explain the discrepancy.

Figures and Tables: Each Figure/Table should be printed on a separate sheet, Figures and Tables are to be separately numbered, titled and attached at the end of the text serially. The position of the figure or table should be indicated in the text on a separate line with the words "Table I about here".

References: Indicate references by number(s) in square brackets in line with the text. The actual authors can be referred to, but the reference number(s) must always be given. Use italic font for the journals and the proceedings in which the paper has been published. Mark italic font on the title of the paper otherwise (for example, book and dissertations).

Example: "……Ahuja et al. [1]. ...... studied [2, 4]. Areibi and Yang [2] obtained ..............

List: Number the references (numbers in square brackets) in the list in the alphabetical order of the first author.
