Note For The Contributors

Submission of Manuscripts

One copy of the manuscript typed in double spacing throughout, should be sent to ‘The Editor’ at in MS Word format only. The cover page of the paper should bear only the name(s) of the author(s), designation, postal address, telephone number and email, title of the paper and 100 words curriculum vitae of the author(s). The second page should contain an abstract of 100 words and the title of the article, but not the author’s name. Manuscripts should normally be between 4000-6000 words. Manuscripts which are not in the style of the journal will be rejected summarily. The articles are subjected to anonymous pre-review before being accepted for publication. Two complimentary copies of the journal shall be supplied to the principal author.


Dual submissions are not accepted. Please attach to every submission a covering letter confirming that all the authors have agreed to the submission and that the article/paper is not currently being considered for publication by any other journal. Submission of an article implies that it has not been published or accepted for publication elsewhere.


At the end of the paper, all references should be consolidated in a single list starting on a new page. References should be placed in the text in superscript numericals. The list on the last page should include the author’s name, title, publisher, place and the year of publication, page number. Authors are particularly requested to verify that each text reference appears in the list, and vice versa

Jargon should be avoided; technical terms not widely understood should be clearly defined; and the conclusions of statistical analysis should be set out in prose, as well as being supported by quantitative information in tables and text as appropriate.
