Manuscript Submission:

Manuscripts should be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript by sending an email to the editor- editor@osijournal.net. Submissions by anyone other than one of authors will not be accepted. The title of the email should indicate the Journal title for which the author would like his/her submission to be considered.

Authors are invited to provide the names of three well qualified reviewers. Current e-mail addresses must be provided for all suggested reviewers.


Manuscript Preparation:

To expedite the review process, please format the manuscript in ways as follow:

1. Prepare your manuscript as a single PDF or MS Word document. The file should include the complete text, references, tables and figures. Any revised manuscripts prepared for publication should be sent as a single editable Word document. LaTex paper is also acceptable for publication, but it should be in PDF for review first.

2. Manuscripts should be written in English and include a 100-300 word abstract.

3. Make sure all the characters in the text, tables, figure legends, footnotes and references are in a single typeface and point size – such as 12 pt Times New Roman. Once a manuscript is accepted, a copy editor will decide the typeface and size of the different elements of the article.

4. Submit all figures or photographs as jpg or tif files with distinct characters and symbols at 500 dpi (dots per inch). Tables and equations should be in an editable rather than image version. Tables must be edited with Word. Equations must be edited with Equation Editor.

5. Type your manuscript single spaced. This will save pages, makes it easier for reviewers to handle and helps slow down global warming by using less paper.

6. All references should be formatted in APA style in the text and listed in the REFERENCES section, as shown below:
