The Title should be a brief phrase describing the contents of the paper, abbreviation should be avoided. The authors' full names and affiliations with the corresponding author’s phone number and E-mail address of corresponding author should be included in the title page.


The Abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, summary of the findings, point out major findings and conclusions. Abstract should not be more than 300 words in length. The Abstract should be written with the Standard nomenclature (S. I. unit); abbreviations and literature citing should be avoided in the abstract.


Author(s) should supply 4 to 6 keywords. Keywords are reference point for further information or as an indication of the contents of a document.


Standard Abbreviations should be used within the body of the text. In general, non-standard abbreviations can be used only when the full term is very long and used often. Each abbreviation MUST be spelled out and introduced in parentheses the first time it is used within the body of the text.


The Introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem, by introducing the concepts and the background of the problems with its relevancy to the earlier works in the area. The relevant literature on the subject and the proposed approach or solution should be stated. The Introduction should be understandable to readers from any of scientific or related areas.

Materials and methodologies (Method of Study)

This should be complete enough to be adaptable to problems. Relationship between the present and previous procedures, with the important modifications of the present procedures should be discussed and cited.

Results and Discussion

The Results and Discussion should be presented with clarity and precision. Results should be written in form of a report about the findings of the authors' experiments or investigations. Results should be illustrated with figures or tables, where necessary. Tables should be numbered in Arabic numerals, each with a short descriptive caption at the top, consecutively. Figures or illustrations should be numbered in Arabic numerals, each with a short descriptive caption below the figure/illustration, sequentially. The Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained and the results in the literature. The contributions that are in the paper should be clearly stated.


Acknowledgements of funding or financial support can also be stated here (brief). Any assistance (technical or advice) rendered by any agency/body/individual may be equally acknowledged. The position for acknowledgements is at the end of the text, before the references.

References: In the text, a reference identified by means of an author’s name should be followed by the date of the reference in parentheses (e.g. “According to his report, Ipinyomi (2005)........” or “Previous studies showed that .....(Adebiyi et al., 2020)” ). When there are more than two authors, only the first author‘s name should be mentioned, followed by et al. (e.g. Adebiyi et al. (1992)).

In the event that an author cited has had two or more works published during the same year, the reference, both in the text and in the reference list, should be identified by a lower case letter like ‘a’ and ‘b’ after the date to distinguish the works. For instance, Adebiyi et al., 2020a. References should be listed at the end of the paper in alphabetical and chronological order (without numbering).
