Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; 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.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

The manuscript should be emailed to designideals@iium.edu.my. The manuscript should ideally be in the format according to the template as specified below within the range of 8-10 pages long. Each manuscript should have a title page, an abstract of about 300 words and about 5 keywords. The title page should contain the title, full name(s), designation(s), organizational affiliation(s), a contact address, and an email address. All manuscripts are received on the understanding that they are not under concurrent consideration at another journal. Exclusive copyright of accepted manuscripts shall be assigned to the Publisher (i.e. KAED, IIUM or IIUM Press). This is an e-journal and open source journal.

Manuscripts will be acknowledged upon receipt. Only selected (preferred) manuscripts will be reviewed by two (or three) referees in addition to the editors. The editorial decision will normally be made within two to six months, but circumstances beyond control occasionally dictate a longer cycle. If authors are invited to prepare a revision for further consideration, the major issues to be resolved will be outlined and will be forwarded to them as quickly as possible. Authors of accepted articles will be requested to provide a digital copy of the manuscript, preferably in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint template to the Publisher.
