Author's Guidelines

The editors invite original, unpublished, empirical and theoretical papers, case studies and scholarly articles consistent with the scope of the journal.

Originality: Only original, unpublished work is sought. Any manuscript submitted to present identical or substantially similar work already published or under review for another conference or publication will not be considered.

Review Process: All contributions submitted for publication will be subjected to peer-review. To allow blind review, authors are advised to provide their identification, affiliation etc. in a separate sheet and not in the main text.

Format: Articles/Papers (3000-5000 words), and book reviews should be neatly typed as Word document on one-side of A4 size paper with double spacing in Times New Roman, 12-point font size justified text.

Cover page: Manuscript must be submitted with the cover page bearing only the title of the paper, name(s) of author(s), designation and contact details of the author(s). Author(s) should mention in the Cover page that the manuscript has neither been published nor is being considered for publication anywhere else.

Footnotes to the text should be avoided. If required, they should be numbered consecutively and presented as endnotes.

In-text Citations and References: In-text Citations should be limited to the name of the author and year of publication. Each citation should have references at the end of the manuscript in alphabetical order by following APA style of referencing.

Plagiarism: The authors are requested to check plagiarism before submission of the extended abstract. The organizing committee
will also check the same from its end.
