Script Process Flow

The author first registers as an author through the following link Register 

Authors should fill in the form in as much detail as possible where asterisked forms are required.  General terms of writing: font: Calibri; Size 12; One space; Beginning of paragraph indented 1 cm; Spacing between paragraphs is 6 ptThe introduction contains the background of the research and the reasons why your research is important. State the critical questions your research addresses and why readers should be interested.

The author should summarize the problem to be addressed, provide background on the subject, discuss previous research on the topic, and explain exactly what your article will cover, why, and how. 

Some things to avoid are making the introduction into a minireview. There are plenty of literature references out there, but as a scientist, you should be able to pick out the things that are most relevant to your research and explain why. This shows the editor/reviewer/reader that you understand your field of research.

Make sure your introduction is very brief, well-structured, and includes all the information needed to follow the development of your findings. Don't overload the reader by making the introduction too long.

Best practice:

  1. Begin the introduction by providing a brief background on the problem being studied;

  2. State the purpose of the research. The purpose of your research is the most important part of the introduction;

  3. Establish the significance of your research: why there is a need to conduct the research.
    Introduce the reader to related literature. Do not give a complete history of the topic. Only cite previous works that are directly related to the current problem;

  4. Clearly state your hypothesis, and the variables being investigated, and summarize the methods used;

  5. Define abbreviations or special/regional terms;

  6. Provide a brief discussion of the results and findings of other studies so that the reader understands the big picture;

  7. Describe some of the key findings presented in your article and explain how they contribute to the larger field of research;

  8. State the main conclusions to be derived from your results, and;

  9. Identify all unanswered questions and new questions generated by your research.

  10. Be concise and aware of who will be reading your manuscript and make sure the Introduction is directed at that audience. Start writing from general to specific: from real-world problems to literature and relate it to your research. Lastly, please avoid creating subsections in the Introduction.


In the Methods section, describe how you conducted your research to (1) allow the reader to evaluate the work done and (2) allow others to replicate your study. You should describe exactly what was done, how the experiments were run, how many, how often, where, when, and the equipment and materials used.

Best practice:

  1. Specify the population and sampling method;

  2. Describe the instrumentation;

  3. Describe the procedure and if relevant, the time frame;

  4. Describe the analysis plan;

  5. Describe any approaches to ensure validity and reliability;

  6. State any assumptions;

  7. Describe the statistical tests and comparisons performed; usual statistical methods should be used without comment; advanced or unusual methods may require literature citations, and;

  8. Describe the scope and/or limitations of the methodology used.

In the social and behavioural sciences, it is important to provide enough information to allow other researchers to adopt or replicate your methodology. This information is particularly important when new methods have been developed or innovative uses of existing methods are employed. Finally, please avoid creating sub-sections within Methods.

Results and Discussion

The purpose of results and discussion is to state your findings and make interpretations and/or opinions, explain the implications of your findings, and preferably make suggestions for future research. The main function of Results and Discussion is to answer the questions posed in the introduction and explain the discussion according to the existing knowledge on the topic. Results and Discussion are considered the core of the article and usually require several writing attempts.

Results and Discussion should always be connected to the introduction, specifically to the research questions or hypotheses you posed and the literature you reviewed, but not simply repeat or reorgopeningtroduction; the discussion should always explain how your study has advanced the reader's understanding of the research problem listed at the end of the introduction.

Best practice:

  1. State the main findings of the research;

  2. Explain what the findings mean and why they are important;

  3. Support answers with results. Explain how your results relate to expectations and the literature;

  4. Relate the findings to similar studies;

  5. State the clinical relevance of the findings;

  6. Acknowledge the limitations of the study, and;

  7. Make suggestions for further research

Be careful that your interpretation of the results does not go beyond what is supported by the data. Data is data: nothing more, nothing less. Please avoid over-interpreting results, unwarranted speculation, inflating the importance of findings, and overemphasizing the impact of your research.

*Work with Graphics:

Figures and tables are the most effective way to present results. The text should be able to stand alone so that figures and tables can be understood without the need to read the entire manuscript. In addition, the data presented should be easy to interpret.

Best step:

  1. Graphics should be simple, but informative;

  2. The use of colour is encouraged;

  3. Graphics should uphold scholarly, professional publication standards;

  4. Graphics must be entirely original, unpublished artwork, created by one of the co-authors;

  5. Graphics should not include photographs, drawings, or caricatures of people, living or deceased;

  6. Do not include stamps or currency from any country, or trademarked items (company logos, images, and products), and;

  7. Avoid selecting graphics that already appear in the text of the manuscript
