  1. Exclusive Submission: Manuscripts should not be submitted to more than one journal at the same time.
  2. Avoid Text Recycling: Refrain from reusing text in subsequent publications of related research.
  3. Originality and Citation: Ensure originality in data and images, and properly cite and acknowledge sourced information. Obtain permission for any copyrighted work used.
  4. No Reproduction: Do not reproduce data or text from previous publications verbatim.
  5. Acknowledgment of Contributions: Recognize all contributions to the research outcomes appropriately.
  6. Substantial Contribution: Authors must have substantially contributed to the research and manuscript preparation, with clear individual roles and collective responsibility.
  7. Data Availability: Be prepared to provide raw data and supplementary information to verify results.
  8. Professionalism: Present research outcomes accurately and professionally.
  9. Ethical Compliance: Adhere to ethical standards, disclose potential conflicts of interest, and obtain necessary institutional ethical approvals.
  10. Language: All submissions must be in English, using clear and concise language.
  11. Format: Manuscripts should be formatted in accordance with the journal's specified guidelines, including font type, size, and line spacing.

Manuscript General structure

The manuscript must begin with an abstract of not more than 500 words that captures the entire summary of the study, including its scope, methodology, findings, conclusion and limitations.

At least five important terminologies reflecting the theme of the manuscript must be placed as keywords at the end of the abstract.

All the manuscripts must start with an introduction to begin with, which sets the tone and the foundation for the study. Introduction provides basic information of the study by referring similar such studies elsewhere. Introduction briefly discusses various key aspects of the study, raising valid and important questions, which may be answered subsequently as the study progresses.

Literature review
In social studies research, a literature review is an essential component that situates the current study within the broader context of existing knowledge. Even when optional, it significantly enhances the depth and rigor of the research by providing a comprehensive overview of relevant theories and empirical findings. For Journal B, a literature review can be structured into two main sections: Theoretical Review and Empirical Review.

Theoretical Review
The theoretical review section of the literature review focuses on the conceptual frameworks, hypothesis development and theories that underpin the research.

Empirical Review
The empirical review section evaluates existing research studies and empirical findings related to the topic. Key elements of empirical review include; summarize the key empirical studies relevant to the research topic. Highlight their findings, methodologies, research gaps and contributions to the field.

Methods and Materials
Methods and materials section discusses the research methods deployed to conduct the study, including the research design, study area, target population, sample size and data collection technique, validity and reliability for social studies as well as data analysis.

The collected information is analyzed statistically by applying various relevant formulas that are universally acceptable and the data is analyzed to produce observations and statements that are backed by valid evidences. This part of the manuscript generally represents tables, graphs, diagrams, charts that reinforce the values and information discussed in the manuscript as text.

Interpret the results, discuss their implications, and relate them to existing knowledge.

The recommendation is key where the authors provide practical suggestions based on their research findings. This section not only highlights the implications of the study but also offers actionable advice for future research, policy, and practice.

Tables, Figures, Graphs and Diagrams
All the tables, graphs, diagrams and images provided in the text must have captions and legends, indicating their appropriate location in the manuscript. All the tables must be presented in the numerical order in Excel format, charts and diagrams must be presented in excel/word format and the images, diagrams and pictures must be presented in jpeg format.
