The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions.

Keywords Immediately after the abstract, provide a minimum of 4 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). 6 Table and Figures Present tables and figures at the appropriate place in the article. Please note that the article will be published in black and white. 8. References Author(s) should follow the latest edition of APA or MLA style in referencing ( Consistency must be maintained). Please visit www.apastyle.org to learn more about APA style Citations in the text Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Avoid citation in the abstract. Unpublished results and personal communications should not be in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication. Reference List References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters "a", "b", "c", etc., placed after the year of publication.
