Manuscripts are therefore accepted for consideration on the understanding that they report unpublished work not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Notification of the peer review result will be by E-mail.
After successful publication, the authors will receive a print copy and PDF of the journal free of charge.
Articles chosen for publication in JAMES NICHOLAS PUBLISHERS journals are refereed by the double blind peer review process.

Authors submitting articles for consideration should provide two copies of the article: one copy that has been anonymised and also a complete version of the article for our records which includes all citations of works by the author/authors.
