Guidelines for Author

Publication Copyright

MJMS policy prohibits an author from submitting the same manuscript for concurrent consideration by two or more publications. It also prohibits publication of any manuscript that has already been published either in whole or where a substantial part has been published elsewhere.  Publication of the manuscript that has been published in full in Proceedings is not allowed too. The editorial may use a plagiarism detection system on the submissions to ascertain these publication rules are abided. By submitting your manuscript to this journal, you are deemed to have accepted that your manuscript may be screened for plagiarism against previously published works.

Editorial process

Authors are notified of the receipt of a manuscript and upon the Editorial decision regarding publication.

Manuscript review: Manuscripts deemed suitable for publication are sent to the Editorial Board members and/or other reviewers/referees. We encourage authors to suggest the names of possible reviewers/referees. Notification of the Editorial decision is usually provided within 10 (Ten) to 12 (twelve) weeks from the notification of the receipt of the manuscript.

Author approval: Authors are responsible for all statements/amendments in articles, including changes made by editors. The liaising author must be available for consultation with an editor of The Journal to answer questions during the editorial process and to approve the edited copy. Authors will receive the edited typescript (not galley proofs) for final approval. Changes cannot be made to the copy after the edited version has been approved.

Manuscript preparation

MJMS accepts submission of research or original articles, and proposals for special issues. The articles must be in English and they must be competently written and argued in clear and concise and grammatical correct English. Acceptable English usage and syntax are expected. Authors are strongly recommended to have the manuscript checked/proof read by a colleague with ample experience in writing English manuscripts or an English language editor. Manuscripts where the written English is difficult to read will be rejected straightaway.

MJMS operates a format-free submission, meaning that, provided you have included everything necessary for the review and use a consistent citation format, you can submit your paper without needing to worry about formatting your manuscript. Please use LaTeX to typeset your manuscript. However, if your manuscript is accepted, you are required to format your manuscript using our LaTeX template.

IMPORTANT: The instructions for authors must be followed. Manuscripts not adhering to the instructions will be returned for revision without review.

Types of Journal Articles

Original Research:

This is the most common type of journal manuscript used to publish full reports of data from research. It may be called an Original Article, Research Article, Research, or just Article, depending on the journal. The Original Research format is suitable for many different fields and different types of studies. The structure of this kind of submission includes (but not limited to) a full Introduction, Literature Review, Methods, Results and Discussion, as well as Conclusions sections. The minimum number of pages should be at least 10 pages (excluding the references).
