The referencing should follow the style of “Notes and References” written at the end of the article. The Editorial Board will not accept papers which make use of footnotes or the APA referencing style. 4.

Authors should indicate their e-mail addresses and/or phone numbers on the cover page. 7. The first page of the article (i.e. the page after the cover page) should not bear the author’s names and other identities. This is to facilitate blind peer review process. 8. Papers should preferably be discussed under sub-headings, i.e. introduction, body (with appropriate sub-headings if necessary) and conclusion. 9. Papers must be submitted with an abstract of not more than 250 words.
