AJMCSR - Instructions for Authors

Aims and Scope
The African Journal of Mathematics and Computer Science Research covers all areas of mathematics and computer science.
 
Types of Articles
The journal welcomes submission of full-length research articles, short communications and review articles. In addition, the journal also welcomes letters to the editor and commentaries.
 
Preparing Your Manuscript
Before submission, ensure that the manuscript falls within the scope of the journal.
 
All submissions must be written in good English. Poorly written submissions will be rejected at the point of submission. Please see Peer Review
 
Manuscripts should be prepared in single-line spacing of not more than 25 pages.
Headings, subheadings, sections and subsections should not be numbered. Major headings should be indicated in bold and block text (Example: INTRODUCTION). Subheadings should be indicated in normal text and title case. The International System of Units (ISI) and other accepted conventions and nomenclature should be followed. The use of footnotes is not accepted.
 
Title
The title phrase should be brief.
List authors’ full names (first-name, middle-name, and last-name).  Academic titles such as Prof., Dr., Assoc. Prof. etc should not be included. Clearly state the affiliations of all authors (Department, Faculty, institution and Country). Provide e-mails and phone numbers for each author.
 
Abstract
The abstract should be less than 300 words. The keywords should be less than 10.
 
Abbreviations
Standard abbreviations should be used all through the manuscript. The use of non-standard abbreviations should be kept to a minimum and must be well-defined in the text following their first use. An abbreviations section should be provided in the case of extensive use.
 
Equations
Mathematical equations should be presented in text format and not as pictures or images. Equations should be numbered consecutively. In citing equations, the word “Equation” should be written in full and not abbreviated.
 
The Introduction
The statement of the problem in addition to the background of the study should be clearly and concisely stated.
 
Materials and methods
Materials and methods should be clearly presented to allow the reproduction.
 
Results and discussion
Results and discussion maybe combined into a single section or presented separately, where necessary. 
 
Tables and figures
Table use should be kept to a minimum.
Tables must have a short descriptive title positioned at the top-left corner of the table. 
Tables should be presented in modified text organized in Microsoft Word or Excel spreadsheet and not as pictures.
The unit of measurement used in a table should be stated.
Tables should be numbered consecutively.
Figures/Graphics should be prepared in GIF, TIFF, JPEG or PowerPoint.
Figures/Graphics must have a short descriptive caption placed immediately at the bottom-left of the figure.
Tables and Figures should be appropriately cited in the manuscript.
 
References
References should be listed in alphabetical order at the end of the paper. DOIs links to referenced articles should be stated wherever available. Names of journals should be presented in full and not abbreviated.
