Title, Keywords, Abstracts
The title, keywords and abstract intend to greatly assist readers to locate the article through search engines. Please consider effective wording and selections so to strengthen these items.
Corresponding Author details
Please provide full contact details for the corresponding author. These include email, mailing address, and telephone contact number. Academic affiliations are required for all authors, and here, details should be separated from the main text of the article, for reasons of anonymous peer review.
Guidelines for submitting artwork, figures and other graphics
For guidelines on preparing illustrations, pictures, graphs, and other graphical items, please visit the APA Submission Guidelines.
If you submit appropriate color figures, these figures will appear in color on the online version of the MEALA – J. If a charge applies you will be informed by the Journal, for which you will be duly contacted.
Tables should be provided (double line-spaced) on separate sheets and their position indicated by note or markers in the appropriate position in the main text. Further to this, all tables must have short descriptions below the tables.
All line diagrams and photographs should be labeled as ‘Figures’ (1, 2, 3 etc) in the manuscript, thus numbered sequentially and consecutively. Line diagrams should be presented as complete and hence in a form suitable for immediate reproduction, where the Journal can not reproduce these. However, should authors require that the Journal reproduce these Figures, the journal will charge a fee for each item. Submitted illustrations should be of an adequate resolution, that is, at least 300 DPI. Illustrations should be supplied as TIFF, EPS, or JPG files at this high resolution. Similarly, photographs should be submitted as high quality. Authors must include relevant descriptive captions on a separate sheet, for each illustrative item.
