General Guideline

To submit your paper/abstract, you are required to create an account in our submission system. Please click here to create an account

Writing an abstract

An abstract not exceeding 250 words, in one paragraph, and with no references. The abstract should at least include the purpose of the study, the design/methodology/approach, and main results or findings. It should be a summary of the paper and it is not an introduction. Because the abstract may be used in abstracting and indexing databases, it should be self-contained (i.e., no numerical references) and substantive in nature. Avoid using technical jargon and uncommon abbreviations. If applicable, the abstract could also contain implications, and the novelty of the study.


Keywords represent the fields and/or sub-fields being discussed in your paper. Effective keywords should:

  • Represent the content of your manuscript
  • Be specific to your field or sub-field

Please click here for more information on how to prepare an effective abstract.

Writing Full Paper
The full paper should consist of 3000 to 4000 words and must not exceed 8 pages in length.
