Manuscript Preparation

To expedite the review process, please format the manuscript this way:

  1. Paper Specifications: A4. Printing area should be 6.69”x 9.45”. The margins should be 0.94" from the top and bottom and 0.78" from the left and right.
  2. Accepted File Format: Manuscripts must be prepared in MS Word and the Eruditio template file which can be downloaded from here may be used. Tables must be edited with MS Word. Equations must be edited with MS Equation Editor. Please do not submit your manuscript in PDF format.
  3. Formatting: Make sure all the characters in the text, tables, figure legends, footnotes and references are in a single typeface, Times New Roman. Single space lining should be used. In essence, we ask you to make your paper look exactly like this document. The easiest way to do this is to simply download the template and replace the content with your own material.
  4. Graphics/ Tables: Submit all graphics as jpg or tiff files with distinct characters and symbols at 500 dpi (dots per inch). All figures and tables must be numbered (Figure 1, Figure 2, Table 1 etc.) and have an explanatory title.
  5. Reference Formatting: All reference numbers should be superscripted in the text and listed in the Reference section in the order they appear in the text. Download the Eruditio Style Guide for detailed information regarding reference formatting. The editors reserve the right of editing manuscripts to conform to the stylistic conventions set forth in the style guide.
  6. Keywords: A list of five to ten keywords should be given.
