An abstract of less than 200 words must be enclosed on a separate sheet at the beginning of the text. The abstract must state the purpose, procedures and conclusions of the study.  The endnotes must be kept to a minimum.

The submitted manuscripts will be screened initially by the chief editors to determine their suitability.

The   Editorial Advisory And Review Board will then review the manuscripts.


English Language Editing

MAR emphasizes on the linguistic accuracy of every manuscript published. Thus all authors are required to get their manuscripts edited by professional English language editors.
Author(s) must confirm that their manuscripts have been adequately edited. A proof (in a form of certificate/ written statement) from recognised editing service provider should be submitted together with the cover letter at the time of submitting a manuscript to MAR. All costs will be borne by the author(s).
This step, taken by authors before submission, will greatly facilitate reviewing, and thus publication if the content is acceptable.
