Author(s) Guidelines
Author(s) should carefully read the whole guidelines before submitting the manuscript for publication. Author(s) must confirm that manuscript is with no grammatical, spelling and punctuation errors. Manuscript must be vigilantly checked over before submission. The editor(s) are not expected to correct the manuscript grammatically and improve readability of the manuscript. The manuscript not prepared according to guidelines may be discarded and not sent for review.
Manuscripts submitted for publication in any journal published by PRJP are reviewed on account of their possible contribution to the development of the knowledge and/or practice of various areas of Social Sciences like Economics, Commerce, Management, Education, Sociology etc. and Science & Technology. For a manuscript to be published in any journal of PRJP, it must maintain three minimum standards:
1 It must make a contribution to knowledge and provide new insights, new ideas, and/or new empirical results.
2 It must be based on sound evidence, whether literature review, theory, or empirical research.
3 It must be of value to academicians and/or practitioners.
Under situation of space limits and equal promising contribution to knowledge, a manuscript with an extensive readership appeal is more likely to be published in journals of PRJP.
Every manuscript is reviewed not only on the wisdom and scope of the views presented and its contributions to the field but also on its simplicity i.e., it can be read and understood. Manuscript should incorporate a conversation of the decision-making conclusions of its work.
PRJP publishes a different set of manuscripts within the area of Social Sciences, Science and Technology, and its readers are from various backgrounds. Therefore, the following guiding principles should be practiced:
Write in an attractive and understandable way with different sentence structure. Author(s) are expected to use active voice, as the passive voice is heavier and a lot uncomfortable.
Sentences should be small so that the reader does not lose your way by the end of a sentence. Avoid using technical terms that only few readers are likely to understand. If it is imperative to use these terms, incorporate with definitions.
To get improved readability of the manuscript, narratives of technical methods, mathematical proofs, and/or development that is not important to the explanation of the main part of the text should be placed in a technical appendix.
Acceptance Criterion
Apart from choosing an appealing and major problem, author(s) of a manuscript is likely to follow the methods for scholarly work, as given below:
1
Scholastic, perspective, or conceptual articles that introduce new thoughts, rationalizations, and views of problems within the scope of particular journal are welcome.
2
Take advantage of references of earlier work when developing your model or hypothesis. Never presume other work on the area being discussed does not exist, giving yourself compliment for all the views in your manuscript.
3
Distinguish your efforts from other work on the subject, and bring to light how you developed such work to make a contribution to theory and practice of that challenging area of research.
4
Give as much information as possible about the research methods, with scales or measures, sample stimulus, directives to respondents or observers, and so on.
5
Clarify the exceptionality of the model and how fine it stands for the populace being studied.
6
Never overlook non-respondents who may have significant characteristics than the respondents.
7
When data set is discussed, reveal the importance of the sample to the subject matter. Carefully selected sample groups are preferable to randomly chosen participants who have little association of and/or bearing to the subject being studied.
8
Use acceptable statistical measures. Take care of the reliability and accuracy of any empirical findings.
9
Be positive to give details of all limitations of your work. As well as be objective.
10 All practical, technical and quantitative aspects should be checked twice for accuracy, together with those in tables, figures, equations, and captions.

Author(s) Details: 1. Full name(s) of author(s), 2. Designation, 3. Name of the organization, 4. City, 5. State, 6. Country, 7. E-mail address, 8. Alternate e-mail address 9. Mobile/Landline phone numbers and 10. Name of the journal, in 12 point Times New Roman centered below the title. The corresponding author of the manuscript must be marked with an asterisk, and should be listed first.
FILE 2: Main Manuscript
Page 1:
Title
The title should not exceed 25 words. The title of the article should be bold, centered and typed in capital letters in a 14 point Times New Roman Font.
Abstract
The abstract is limited to 300 words and summarizes the key components of the manuscript, offering the reader a sample of the manuscript.
Keywords
Author(s) must mention 3–5 keywords. Key words should be listed alphabetically, separated by commas, and full stop at the end.
Page 2 and onward, with each new component beginning on its own page:
Main Text
Please do not add any headers/footers on any page (other than the page number). Headings are text only (not numbered) and are formatted according to their level.
PRIMARY HEADING: Center aligned, title-style capitalization (first letter of each word), and bold, with an extra return before and after.
SECONDARY HEADING: Left aligned with title-style capitalization (first letter of each word) and in both boldface and italics. You must have at least two sections beginning with a secondary heading; if there is only one, the heading should be excluded.
TERTIARY HEADING: Left justified and indented with sentence-style capitalization (first word only) in italics. Punctuate the heading with a period and begin the first line of the same section on the same line. If only one tertiary heading is used, the heading should be excluded.
Mathematical Equations
Equations should be centered on the page. If equations are numbered, type the number in parentheses flush with the left margin. Please avoid using Equation Editor for simple in-line mathematical copy, symbols, and equations. Type these in Word instead, using the “Symbol” function when necessary.
Footnotes
Footnotes are to be used carefully and must be short. Not more than 10 total footnotes should appear in a manuscript. Format footnotes in plain text, with a superscript number showing in text and the corresponding note after the reference section.
References
References begin on their own page and are listed in alphabetical order by the first author’s last name. Only references mentioned within the text are included. All references should be in 12-point font and double-spaced.
Tables
Tables should not be with the text but placed at the end of the document. Each table should be numbered successively and submitted on a separate page. Please indicate proper table placement in the text (“Insert Table 1 about here”). Tables must be numbered in the order in which they are to appear.
Figures
The term “figure” connotes to a range of material, including line drawings, maps, charts, graphs, diagrams, photos, and Web shots, among others. Figures should not come into view within the text but follow the placing procedure like tables.Each figure should be numbered successively and submitted on a separate page. Please designate appropriate figure placement in the text (“Insert Figure 1 about here”). Figures must be numbered in the order in which they are to appear.
Appendix
If Appendixes are given, they should appear on a fresh page after the figures. A single appendix should be labeled without letters (Appendix).

  • Systematic proof or derivations that is not vital to the substantive contribution of the paper.
  • Detail of sampling design experimental.
  • Means and correlations of variables for survey work.
  • Results of subsidiary analyses or tests.
  • Content for the Web appendix should be labeled “Web Appendix” and should become visible after any normal appendixes. Multiple Web appendixes should be clearly labeled Appendix W1, Appendix W2, and so forth.
    Note: Name of author(s) or any other identifying information must not present anywhere in the manuscript.
    Submission Deadline
