They should be not more than 10,000 words, should be typewritten double-spaced on 8.5” by 11” bond paper and sent by mail or encoded using MS Word and may be sent by email.

Depending on the volume of articles received and the turnover of articles from referees, we expect to inform the author of the editorial decision within two months. Once the manuscripts are accepted, the editorial board may request the author/s to revise the paper. The editorial board reserves the right to make the necessary editorial modifications including but not limited to changes in the content, format, and title of articles.
