Instructions to Authors


Submission of Manuscript


Submission of manuscript may be sent to the Editor of the Journal by e-mail. Even as early as at the time of submission, it is advised a paper is prepared according to the format of Camera-Ready Version.


Preparation of Camera-Ready Version (CRV)


The Instructions for Authors should be followed accurately and completely. It contains two parts:

Part 1 is about Organizational and Presentational Styles of a research paper; and

Part 2 is about the Specifications of Camera-Ready Version (CRV).


Word Doc Template of Camera-Ready Version


The Instruction for Authors itself is a Word template. It will be physically true to the specifications of CRV only if this exemplar is printed on Executive-size paper by a scaling of 100%).


Sample Tex file of Camera-Ready Version


Note that while the page layout settings specify the title page has top margin = 2.5 cm with two 14-point blank lines preceding the title, this sample Latex file has actually set the title page to have top margin = 3.5cm, which is equivalent to 2.5 cm plus two 14-point blank lines.
