ORCID (ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID ) provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.
IIMRJ encourage all authors and co-authors to link their ORCIDs to their accounts. The ORCID ID is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.
Titles of tables are written above while the title of figures and plates are written below the images.
The abstract should be brief, informative and completely self-explanatory with salient points and important conclusion. The abstract should be in 200 to 300 words without references.
Authors must give 4 to 5 keywords which can identify the most important subject covered by the article. (Discipline of the study, Concepts studied, Methods/process, and Geography ( country/continent )
The primary goal of the introductory paragraph is to catch the attention of the readers and to get them turned on about the subject. The introduction should contain:
1. Global, national, and local situational analysis of the problem supported by the literature from a different continent.
2. The gap in the literature from the literature reviews that the study intends to find.
3. Differentness of the study from other previous studies.
4. Compelling reasons of the writer for choosing the problem.
5. Includes legal bases such as relevant pronouncement from authorities, memoranda, orders, laws, and guidelines.
All pages, including tables, appendices and references should be serially numbered.
Spell out numbers from one to ten, except when used in tables and lists, and when used with mathematical, statistical, scientific, or technical units and quantities, such as distances, weights, and measures. percentage and decimal fractions (in nontechnical copy, use the word percent in the text).
Framework of the Study (optional for experimental researches)
It consists of the researcher’s own position in a problem after his exposure to various theories that have to bear on the problem.
Objectives of the Study
It is the focal point of the research.
The methodology section describes the basic research plan. It consists of the following parts: 1. research design 2. respondents/subjects of the study 3. data gathering procedure 4. statistical treatment of data.
Results and Discussion
This is the heart of the research study. In this section where the obtain data for sub-problems/ specific problems are presented, analyzed and interpreted. The data can be presented through the use of tables, text, graphs, and figures.
These are generalized statements in answer to the subproblems/ specific problem raised, or the statement of the acceptance or rejection of the hypothesis. The conclusion is a valid outgrowth of findings.
