To facilitate our double-blind peer review system, a separate file, preferably the title page should be uploaded with the author’s full name, affiliation, full contact information including institutional affiliation, email and phone number(s) as well as a brief bio of about fifty words. Another file containing the main document which is anonymized without any form of trace of the author’s name should also be uploaded.

Five key words to facilitate article search should be provided to easy search of the article by interested readers.

British style English and spellings should be used throughout the paper and paragraphs should be observed with double-line spacing instead of indentation.
