The Corresponding author should be identified when writing the Names of authors.

Formatting paper
Papers should be formatted to standard A4 size paper. Text must be fully justified. For the text, use Times New Roman font, 11 point type throughout the paper, including figure captions.

Major headings
Sections of the manuscripts should be numbered. Major headings, for example "INTRODUCTION", should be in capital letters and appear in bold face Subheadings Subheadings for example "Characterization of Oil" should appear in boldface and not in capital letters.

The abstract should contain a maximum of between 150 to 250 words. It should not contain literature citations. All non-standard symbols and abbreviations should be defined.

Keywords: Enter up to 5 keywords separated by commas i.e Keywords: One, two, three, four, five

Introduction: This should include subject, scope of the subject, justification and aim or objective of the paper.

This should be written in sufficient detail to enable others to repeat the authors' work. Units and dimensions should be expressed according to the metric system and SI units. Methods used should be properly referenced.

Results and Discussion should be combined and may be further divided into subsections. Authors are expected to compare their studies with those of other authors.

Tables should be numbered and referred to in the text by number. Tables should be prepared in Microsoft word and vertical rules should not be used.

The figures should be clear, easy to read and of good quality. Styles and fonts should match those in the main body of the article. All figures must be mentioned in the text in consecutive order and be numbered. Figures should not be a duplication of the tables. Coloured illustrations should be limited or will attract extra charge.

Information concerning research grant support and the assistance of colleagues or similar notes of appreciation should appear in an Acknowledgements section. This should be included at the very end of the paper before the references.

List all bibliographical references alphabetically at the end of the paper. When referring to them in the text, type the corresponding reference as (Author, year) e.g "as discussed by Smith (2009)"; "as discussed elsewhere (Smith, 2009) or (Smith, 2008; Okafor, 2010; Bala, 2013").
