SLOAP Journals Technical Guidelines

  1. Authors are required to use the style template (Style Sheet Template) and format the manuscript accordingly before submission.
  2. All manuscripts must be typed in Microsoft Word and single-spaced. Margins are to be set at Normal (2 cm all round) and paper size at Letter/Quarto (21,6 cm X 27,5 cm) or (8,5 inch X 10,8 inch).
  3. Submissions should be more than 2000 words but not exceed 10000 words (Appendices and References included).
  4. The text is single-spaced; uses a 10-point font, Times New Roman; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  5. Each manuscript must have an abstract (not exceeding 300 words) and 5 keywords. Manuscripts that do not adhere to this will not be considered for review.
  6. Authors are encouraged to include hypermedia links within their article and ensure these are ready to use.
