It is a platform for researchers and practitioners to interact, debate and exchange information for sustainable development. The NJEDEM seeks to advance knowledge in behavioural sciences through disseminating well-researched findings to policy makers and the general reading public.

Prospective authors should please note that they are expected to adhere strictly to the ollowing instructions. Non-compliance will lead to the return of the paper for correction and may cause unnecessary delay in the publication of the article.

i.) Authors should please refer to the aim and scope of thr journal before submitting any paper for consideration.
ii.) Authors should ensure that they are not infringing any copyright. Submission of an article is understood to imply that the work is original, unpublished and is not being considered for publication elsewhere.
iii.) Author's name, address, institutional affliation, and biographical sketch should appear on the title page, separate from the main text to ensure anonymity in the review process. Again, the title and the Abstract of the paper (not exceeding 130 words)nshould appear on the first text pageĀ  as a means of identification.
iv.) Articles should be written in English. Authors are urged to ask themselves whether their papers are satisfactory from a linguistic point of view (e.g., grammar, syntax). If in doubt, please consult a language adviser before submitting the paper.
v.) Manuscripts should be typed or printed double-spaced on one side of A4 paper and should not exceed 25 pages; font; Times New Roman, 14 point, all margins set at 2.654cm.
vi.) Figures should have clear markings (in a large, legible font), be done in Excel or Powerpoint and form part of the main text. For table and figure headings, see a recent article in NJEDEM. Equations should be done in MS Word compatible format. Diagrams, graphs, etc., should be provided in a form suitable for reproduction to avoid unnecessary delays in production.
vii.) The Harvard method of refrencing should be used. All refrences to books and articles should be identified in the text by the surname of the author, year of publication and page refrence, placed in parenthesis, e.g, (Ndiyo, 2001:94). Where there is more than one reference to the same author with different materials published in the same year, the references should be distinguished sequentially as for example (Essia, 2003a; 2993b). If there are more than two authors in a particular publication, use the surname of the first author, followed by 'et al', e.g., Ebong, et al (1995).
viii.) Short quotations should be distinguished by the double quotation mark, but quotations of more than 3 lines should be indented and separated from the main paragraph without quotation marks. Whwn emphasizing words, using terms in a foreign language, and referrig to the title of a book or journal in your paper, use italics rather than underline.
ix.) Endnotes (not footnotes) should be kept to a minimum, numbered consecutively, and placed at the end of the text, before the list of refrences. This should be followed by a list of references arranged alphabetically. For a practical example, see a recent issue of NJEDEM or the journal flier.
