When preparing manuscripts for the journal, author(s) are required to adhere to the following:

  1. Manuscripts should be original along with three copies [1 + 3], double-spaced, on one side of the paper
    with margins.  Original diagrams, figures and photographs should be sent in such a way that they do not
    bend or become defaced in the mail. In case of photographs (normal/coloured) three copies must be sent for refereeing purposes.
  2. All the pages should be numbered consecutively, including those containing diagrams, tables and
    figures. Figures and diagrams should be placed after the text.
  3. Manuscripts are accepted in Arabic and English only. A manuscript should not exceed 15 pages (including diagrams, tables, figures and abstract).
  4. The title of the manuscript and name(s), address (es) of the author(s) should be complete in the Arabic
    abstract of the manuscript, if it is submitted in English.
  5. Only the metric system should be followed for all types of measurements.
