Subtitles/headings under introduction should be in lower case except the first letter of a keyword/noun.


MATERIALS AND METHODS: This section should be presented with clarity and detail. The techniques and methodology adopted should be supported with standard references. Researches involving the use of experimental animals or human subjects must include a statement to prove that the investigation was approved by the Ethic Committee of their respective institution or institute. Subtitles/headings under this section should be in lower case except the first letter of a keyword/noun.


RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: Results may be split into subheadings. Statistically analyzed data obtained from the study should be arranged in a unified and coherent sequence.

Salient point/findings from the study should be discussed and supported by relevant previous and latest references. Subtitles/headings under this section should be in lower case except the first letter of a keyword/noun.


CONCLUSION: This is a concise deduction drawn from the findings. Author(s) should avoid citing similar work done; rather a conclusive inference with respect to the subject of research should be presented. 


ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: Author(s) may wish to acknowledge those who contributed immensely to the article but do not fulfill the requirement for authorship. Author(s) should however acknowledge the sponsor or the funding agency of the research.


REFERENCES: References and citations must be in proper format. References should be cited in the text by surname of the author(s) and the year e,g Adeniyi (1986), Dashora and Pandey (2007). In case of more than two authors, surname of the first author followed by et al. and the year should be cited in the text e.g Saranya et al. (2011) or (Saranya et al., 2011).
