International Journal of MALA (IJMALA)

Dear Professional colleagues,

  It gives us immense pleasure to inform that MALA is planning to publish a e-journal named as International Journal of MALA from 2019 onward. It will have a frequency of two issues (June and December) per year. We request the LIS professionals to contribute the research manuscripts to the Editor, which will enable us to get them reviewed by experts in the field and then to publish the issues.

  The co-operation of LIS professionals is very much essential, without whom the journal cannot be published. In order to maintain the frequency and number of papers in single issue, We request all of them to contribute generously.

  Please try to send the article (4000-5000 words) with Title, Author(s) Information, Abstract, Keywords (5-7 numbers), Introduction, Statement of the Problem, Objectives, Research questions, Methodology, Scope, Literature Review, Analysis and Findings, Conclusion, Recommendations and further research (depends upon the MSS). Please follow the APA referencing style within the text and give references accordingly.

  We will publish Instructions to Authors and other related information in the First issue of the Journal. Try to send the articles to with the subject Paper Submission- IJMALA, so as to enable us to process them for publishing.

Thanks & Regards
