The TITLE PAGE should contain the title of the article, name(s). ABSTRACT: the abstract should not be more than 250 words. KEY WORDS: key words should not be more than 6 words. INTRODUCTION: this is different from the abstract in that it – sets the stage – for the content of the article rather than telling the reader what it is about. MAIN BODY: you could incorporate subtitle, artwork, photos, tables, Figures, etc. CONCLUSION: this is the assessment of results or restatement of points in introduction. REFERENCES: the reference standard is the current APA style form of referencing. Manuscript should not be more than 20 pages.

Format manuscripts to the specifications outlined. Manuscripts that deviate from the specified format will be returned to the author(s) without being reviewed. Preparation
of a manuscript in the format described will improve the likelihood that the manuscript will be rated favourably by the reviewers. In general, authors should avoid making their manuscripts stand out as different by preparing them in unusual or unconventional formats.


All individuals listed as an author of a manuscript should have contributed in conceptualising the research or content of the manuscript, in writing or critically editing the manuscript, and/or in the analysis of data presented in the manuscript. All authors should be thoroughly acquainted with the substance of the final manuscript and be able to defend its conclusions. Individuals who have made subsidiary contributions may be listed in a section called Acknowledgments.
The authors must note that submitting an article to Ramat Polytechnic Publications means that:
  1. authors confirm that the articles are original.
  2. there’s no conflicts of interests or any plagiarism issues;.
  3. the article is not being considered elsewhere.
    • All manuscripts must be original. No manuscript will be considered which has already been published or is being considered by another journal. When work described in conference proceedings is substantially revised and extended, it will however be considered for publication. By submitting a manuscript, the author(s) certify that the article is not being considered for publication nor has it been published elsewhere.

You will be notified whether the paper is accepted for publication within 10 working days (usually) after the peer review.

Submission of a paper to this journal indicates that the author(s) have agreed on the content of the paper. One author should be indicated as the corresponding author for all

publication related communications. All correspondence and proofs would be sent to the corresponding author, who will be treated as a final representative voice for all authors regarding any decision related to the manuscript unless otherwise requested during submission. This journal would not be responsible for any dispute related to authorship of a submitted paper. Any change in the authorship (such as addition or deletion of author(s) or change in the sequence of author list) should be intimated to the editorial office through a letter signed by all authors before publication of the paper. In absence of any signed letter, approval of 'Galley proof' by the corresponding author will work as 'certificate of final agreement of authorship'. Generally, any change in the authorship after final publication is not entertained.
