INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS

It is preferred that the article is created in MS Word using 12-point Times New Roman type throughout. Once an article has been accepted the final version may be submitted in TeX / LaTeX also, provided a separate PDF file is also sent. The title, numbered equations and tables, should be centered. Everything else must be aligned to the left without any indent. A double space above and below all headings is required. If you use special characters (e.g. Chinese, Cyrillic) other than Latin or Greek alphabets and common mathematical symbols, you must supply PDF files and indicate their placement. In fact a PDF file showing complete article with everything embedded as it should appear in the print, must be supplied.

The main body of the article should be divided by appropriate numbered section and sub-section headings all in upper/lower bold type and aligned to the left. An Acknowledgment section may be included before the list of references. Manuscripts must generally be organized in the following manner:

(i) Title (bold face) followed by author name(s) only [centered], (ii) Abstract and Key Words [centered], (iii) Article Text, (iv) Acknowledgments, (v) References, (vi) Appendices, and (vii) About the Author(s).

The abstract should be followed by three to seven keywords that would be useful in identifying it for reference purposes. The last page of the article should contain the complete mailing address of the corresponding author.

Please avoid using any Footnotes. All references in the text must be cited by author surname and year, like (Smith, 1993) or Smith (1985b). List all the cited references at the end of the article, in alphabetical order of the surnames (writing initials first followed by the surnames), strictly in accordance with the following examples:
