INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

  1. Authors are requested to submit their papers/manuscripts to dujournal.hss@gmail.com in MS Word format.
  2. Work submitted to the journal must be original and not submitted elsewhere for publication.
  3. The manuscript should be written in English.
  4. The first page of the manuscript should contain the following information: (i) Title; (ii) Author(s); (iii) Institutional Affiliation(s); (iv) Abstract of not more than 150 words; (v) three to five keywords; (vi) corresponding author in case of multiple authors. A footnote on the same sheet should give the name, address, telephone number, fax number, and e-mail address of the corresponding author.
  5. Acknowledgments and information on grants received should be given in a first footnote, which should not be included in the consecutive numbering of footnotes.
  6. Manuscripts should be in Times New Roman font, size 12, 1.5 spacing, with 1 inch margins (A4 size) with pages numbered consecutively.
  7. The manuscript should be divided into clearly defined and numbered sections and sub-sections which must contain the essential elements such as Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Methodology, Results, Conclusions, Artwork/Figure and Tables. Titles and subtitles of sections should be short.
  8. References, tables, and figures should be on separate pages. Tables and figures should be numbered consecutively in the text in Arabic numerals.

  10. Displayed formulae should be numbered consecutively throughout the manuscripts as (1), (2), etc. against the right-hand margin of the page. In cases where the derivation of formulae has been abbreviated, it is of great help to the referees if the full derivation can be presented on a separate sheet (not to be published).
  11. References should appear at the end of the main text before tables and figures. It should be single spaced and listed in alphabetical order by the author's name. References should appear in the Chicago style (Author-Date Style) as follows:
