Notes for Authors

Guidelines for Abstract Submission 

The abstract is what users, researches and reviewers will read when deciding whether your article pertains to their interests and needs. For this reason, your abstract is an extremely important and powerful representation of your article. As an author, you should spend time ensuring that it is readable, error free and that it contains a complete description of your research.  

In approximately 250-300 words, you will need to summarise your findings, and describe the implications of those findings. Your abstract must be self-contained, without abbreviations, footnotes, or references. It should be a microcosm of the full article. It must be written as one paragraph, and should not contain displayed mathematical equations or tabular material. The abstract should also include three to seven different keywords or phrases, as this will help readers to find it.
