Submit two copies of the manuscript along with a soft copy (Floppy/CD) to the Editor. Manuscripts should not be submitted via Fax; e-mail may be used to transmit papers. To facilitate academic review and production, authors must provide their complete name, address, phone number(s), current position/title, and name(s) of universities on the title page. Manuscripts will be considered for publication only if they have not been published previously and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

The Review Procedure

Manuscripts that are submitted to Al-Adwa are subject to evaluation by at least two independent referees (including one from technologically advanced countries) who are expert in the applicable field. The decision to accept or reject a manuscript rests solely with AlAdwa’ Editorial Board. This decision is final. The Editorial Board will, however, base its decision primarily upon the recommendations of the referees who have evaluated the paper. <
