This information should be provided on a separate sheet and authors should not be identified anywhere else in the article. Authors must supply a structured abstract that should not exceed 250 words and cover the following aspects

    • Purpose (mandatory)
    • Design/methodology/approach (mandatory)
    • Findings (mandatory)
    • Research limitations/implications (if applicable)
    • Practical implications (if applicable)
    • Social implications (if applicable)
    • Originality/value (mandatory).

4. Please provide up to five keywords which encapsulate the principal topics of the paper.

5. Categorize your paper under one of these classifications:

    • Research paper – Viewpoint
    • Technical paper
    • Conceptual paper
    • Case study
    • Literature review
    • General review.

6.  Headings must be short, with a clear indication of the distinction between the hierarchies of headings. The preferred format is for headings to be presented in bold format, with consecutive numbering.

7. Notes or Endnotes should be used only if absolutely necessary and must be identified in the text by consecutive numbers, enclosed in square brackets and listed at the end of the article.

8. Each Figure (charts, diagrams, line drawings and photographic images) should be supplied separately (i.e. not within the article itself). Figures should be of clear quality, numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals, and may be supplied in color to facilitate their appearance in color on the online database.

9. Figures created in MS Word, MS PowerPoint, MS Excel, Illustrator and Freehand should be saved in their native formats. Electronic figures created in other applications should be copied from the origination software and pasted into a blank MS Word document.

10. For figures which cannot be supplied in MS Word, acceptable standard image formats are: pdf, ai, wmf and eps. If you are unable to supply graphics in these formats then please ensure they are tif, jpeg (jpg), or bmp at a resolution of at least 300dpi and at least 10cm wide.

11. Tables should be typed and included as part of the manuscript. They should not be submitted as graphic elements. Supply succinct and clear captions for all tables and figures. Ensure that any superscripts or asterisks are shown next to the relevant items and have corresponding explanations displayed as footnotes to the table or figure.

12. References preference is that manuscripts be prepared using the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. All publications must be in APA style and carefully checked for completeness, accuracy and consistency.
