The materials and methods section should provide sufficient detail about your materials and methods to enable an independent researcher to reproduce your work. If the method you used has already been published, provide a summary and cite the original publication,

iii. Results:

Present your results clearly and concisely in a single section. Discuss the significance of your findings without redundancy, and minimize extensive citations and discussions of published literature

iv. Conclusion:

The conclusion section should present the main conclusions of your study.

v. Acknowledgements:

Include individuals who assisted with your research, such as language editing, writing, or proofreading, in the acknowledgements section. This section should be placed directly before the reference list in your document.

vi. References

List all references cited in the text in APA style. Ensure all references are complete and accurate

1.3 Figures and Tables

  • Figures and tables should be numbered consecutively and included in the manuscript text where they are first mentioned.
  • Provide clear, descriptive captions for all figures and tables.
  • Figures should be submitted in high-resolution (300 dpi) format.

3. Article Processing Charges (APC)

4.1 Proofreading

  • Authors will receive proofs for final review before publication.
