Manuscript shall be organized as follows:

Main Body: Introduction, Literature Review, Methodology, Analysis and Results, Discussion, Conclusion and Recommendations

End Body:  References(Standard APA format should be followed for references. For detailed information on APA referencing)

Tables and Figures: (Should be placed at the end of the main text. All the tables and figures should be centrally aligned and labelled in original designation using TABLE 1 or IMAGE 1. The caption of figures will be added at the end of the figure and the caption of the table will be inserted above the table.)

Footnotes: Footnotes are to be used sparingly and must be concise. No more than 10 total footnotes should appear in a manuscript and each note cannot exceed 40 words. Format footnotes in plain text, with a superscript number appearing in text and the corresponding note after the reference section.

When considering submitting an article, the Editors have provided the following criteria to assist authors with preparing their submissions:

Originality – The author should ensure that the manuscript has not been previously published nor is being considered by another journal.

Plagiarism - IJOMR is strongly committed to ensure that the content is not plagiarized and strictly original. It is our scientific obligation to consider all research and publication ethics. In that case, submitting authors are required to acknowledge that they are completely aware of the policy on the plagiarism and copyright while signing copyright transfer agreement. According to the policy, all the mentioned attributes below violate plagiarism policy. This includes:

  • Duplicating of thoughts, content, information tables and figures and showing it as unique exploration without legitimate reference.
  • The utilization of thoughts that have been introduced in earlier work, paying little mind to whether the thoughts are communicated utilizing the same words, tables or representation.
  • Word-for-word duplicating of the work by others

The utilization and reuse of exact information takes after the same standards as different sorts of exploration, albeit a few issues are remarkable to the way of information instead of thoughts communicated in content and arithmetic.

Writing – Please write in good English (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of these). For non-native English speakers, and perhaps even for some native English speakers, the grammar, spelling, usage, and punctuation of the text are very important for an effective presentation. Hence, manuscripts are expected to be written in a clear, cogent, and readily understandable by an international readership. Online Submission Manuscripts must submit online.

Electronic submission reduces the editorial processing and reviewing times and reduces the time of submission to publication. The structure of Manuscripts Title Page, the title page should include: The name(s) of the author(s), A concise and informative title, The affiliation(s) and address (es) of the author(s).

  • The e-mail address of the corresponding author Abstract should contain a maximum of 250 words.
  • The abstracts should avoid any abbreviations and mathematical formulas.
  • Keywords should include 4-6 keywords.
  • Text Formatting Manuscripts should be submitted in Word, A4, and Times New Roman, 10-point for abstract and keywords and 12-points for text.
  • A complete manuscript falls need to be maximum 8,000 words excluding references, tables, and figures.
  • For numerations of pages use the automatic page numbering function. In the text for emphasis use italics.
  • The use of abbreviations should be avoided.
  • If using the first Abbreviations should be used throughout the text the same.
  • For headings use maximum three levels.
  • Footnotes should be avoided. If used, footnotes should only contain additional text (comment), and not information about sources used.
  • Acknowledgments should be placed in a separate section before the reference list.

Introduction – State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

Materials and Methods – Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.

Results – Results should be clear and concise.

Discussions – This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

Conclusions - The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.

Acknowledgments - Collate acknowledgments in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proofreading the article, etc.).

Reference Style – All manuscripts should be formatted using the American Psychological Association (APA) citation style, which is used primarily in the social sciences. For additional examples, consult the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.

References Citation Citations of books, book chapters, or journal articles in the text or in footnotes should be given in a shortened form: author name(s), year and page number or paragraph. Reference list Reference list should only include works that have been published or accepted for publication. Unpublished works should be only mentioned in the text. The reference list should be with the bibliographic details of the cited books, book chapters, or journal articles. Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last names of the first author of each work. Citation of Books Author’s surname Initial(s) of the given name(s) (Year of Publication) Title of Book (Italic), Volume number (if relevant), edition (if relevant).

Official documents Reference should include the document title (in italics) year of publication, the title of publication, no. Tables all tables are to be numbered using Arabic numerals. Tables should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order. For each table, please supply a table caption (title) explaining the components of the table. Identify any previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference at the end of the table caption. Footnotes to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data) and included beneath the table body. For the best quality final product, it is highly recommended that you submit all of your artwork – photographs, line drawings, etc. – in an electronic format.

Electronic Figure Submission Supply all figures electronically. Indicate what graphics program was used to create the artwork. For vector graphics, the preferred format is EPS; for halftones, please use TIFF format. MS Office files are also acceptable. Vector graphics containing fonts must have the fonts embedded in the files. Name your figure files with “Fig” and the figure number, e.g., Fig1.eps. Scanned line drawings and line drawings in bitmap format should have a minimum resolution of 1200 dpi. All figures are to be numbered using Arabic numerals. Figure captions begin with the term Fig. in bold type, followed by the figure number, also in bold type. If you include figures that have already been published elsewhere, you must obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format.
