Authors must also confirm that each author has seen and approved the contents of the submitted manuscript.

Authors are obligated to suggest a reviewer who has the appropriate qualification in field of study of the research reported in the manuscript.  MNIJIS reserve the right to forward the document to such a reviewer. MNIJIS will however inform the person about her/his nomination as a reviewer.
