All text should be fully justified. Please put all primary section titles in UPPER CASE letters and subheading in both Upper and Lower Case letters. Do not number your titles (for example, 1.0 Introduction; 2.0 Background). Do not use the tab key to indent blocks of text such as paragraphs of quotes or lists because the page layout program overrides the left margin with its own, and the tabs end up in mid-sentence.

The source of any financial support, gifts, technical assistance and advice received for the work being published must be indicated in the Acknowledgments section.

 

  1. REFERENCES:

Referencing is a standardized way of acknowledging the sources of information and ideas that you have used in your research work and which allows the sources to be identified. It is important to be consistent when you are referencing.

The Vancouver style of referencing is predominantly used in the medical field and Para medical science. When referencing your work in the Vancouver style, it is very important that you use the right punctuation and that the order of details in the reference is also correct. References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text (not in alphabetic order). Download a PowerPoint presentation on reference styles (How to write reference) and using the reference checking facility on the manuscript.
