Instructions for Authors
The following guidelines should be followed strictly in submitting the manuscript of the paper:
Manuscript Format: All manuscripts must be written in English, must be plagiarism-free and typed on only one side of A-4 size papers with 1.5 space between the lines and appropriate margins, and submitted in an MS Word format via email. Two typed copies of the manuscript must be submitted to the Editor. The text of submission should only be typed in ‘Times New Roman’ (12 point font size). The paper should ideally range between 2000 – 6000 words including an abstract not exceeding 200 words and references/ bibliography. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also presented in the reference list (and vice versa). Author’s name, institutional affiliation and email address should be given on a separate cover page with the manuscript to facilitate blind reviewing. Authors are requested to send a brief biography (75 words maximum) with a scanned picture on a separate sheet.
Abstract: Each article should be accompanied by an abstract of no more than 200 words. Abstract should include only the gist of the paper.
Reference/ Bibliography: All references should be cited in the text by typing in parentheses the last name(s) of author(s) followed by the year of publication. Two or more cited publications by the same author(s) that were published in the same year should be distinguished by a, b, c, etc. after year, for example (Islam, 2000b). The authors are advised not to use ibid, op. cit. loc. supra, or infra. Instead, they are requested to show subsequent citation of the same source in the same way the first citation is made. All cited references should be arranged alphabetically at the end of the text on the basis of the cited author’s last name, under a separate heading `References’. This list should give the last name(s) of the author(s) with appropriate initial letters of the earlier parts of the name(s), publication date and title of work. For books, the place of publication and the publisher’s name should be given. For papers, the name of the periodical, volume (number) and inclusive pages should be given. Examples may be seen in University of South Asia Journal.
Notes: Informational or explanatory footnotes are not generally encouraged. However, if they are unavoidable or essential, they should be limited to comments and explanations. These should be cited in the text as an affixed number and such notes should be sequentially arranged at the end of the text, but before `References’. These notes should not be used to cite reference to literature.
Tables: Tables should be typed on separate sheets, and should be numbered sequentially with Arabic numerals (e.g. Table 1) and have captions. They should be properly cited in the text. Short tables may be placed within the text.
Illustrations: The paper should contain minimum number of tables, graphs and figures. The same data should not be used both for tables and/or graphs and figures. All illustrations (graphs and figures) should be ready for reproduction and should be numbered sequentially with numerals (e.g. Fig. 1) and should have captions. The photographs should be printed and submitted on glossy papers.
