As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • Each manuscript submission will be checked by editorial team based on plagiarism and similarity index. Please be advised that all manuscripts submitted to the DIVERSITY will be screened for plagiarism/duplication.
  • Authors are required to paraphrase all references citations in their own words. This is to prevent any misunderstandings regarding plagiarism.
  • In the case where a particular citation would lose its original meaning and essence if paraphrasing is attempted, the journal requires authors to enclose the citation in quotation marks (“") to indicate that it is a direct quote from the source. However, excessive use of such quotation marks is discouraged and should be utilised only when necessary.
  • DIVERSITY adopts a zero-tolerance towards plagiarism. Failure to comply with these instructions will result in the outright rejection of manuscripts without peer review, and appropriate action will be taken.
    SIMILARITY INDEX: < 20 %
    CATEGORY: Pass

    SIMILARITY INDEX: 21 – 50 %
    CATEGORY: Resubmit

    SIMILARITY INDEX: > 50 %
    CATEGORY: Reject
  • Besides, any individual resource that exceeded 2% of the similarity index will be subjected to resubmission.
  • Submissions that are identical (or substantially similar) to previously published, accepted for publication, or submitted in parallel to other conferences are NOT appropriate for submission to DIVERSITY and violate our dual submission policy. If you are in doubt (particularly in the case of material that you have posted on a website), we ask you to proceed with your submission but to include a copy of the relevant previously published work or work under consideration by other journals.
  • Policy on Near-Duplicate Submissions or Multiple submissions with an excessive amount of overlap in their text or technical content are NOT acceptable. The Editors reserve the right to immediately reject all submissions they deem to be excessively similar and by the same authors. Such “shotgun submissions” are unacceptable, unfair to authors who submit single original papers, and place an additional strain on the review process.

  • Title of the manuscript
  • Abstract (Unstructured & 150 words) and Keywords
  • Introduction
  • Relevant section headings of the author’s choice
  • Conclusions
  • References
  • The review article should not exceed 6000-word count, 0-4 figures/tables, and there should be an adequate number of references to support the review.

Case series

  • The Case Series should report 3-6 similar cases that address clinical problems/challenges in diagnosis/treatment or health-related solutions (non-clinical) to provide a better or different perspective in managing these cases/issues.
  • The manuscript file should be organised according to the following headings:
    • Title of the manuscript
    • Abstract (Structured & 250 words) and Keywords
    • Introduction

Systematic Review

  • Authors should report systematic reviews and meta-analyses following the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses) statement and guidelines or other relevant guidelines for systematic reviews. Systematic reviews or meta-analyses terms should be included in the title, abstract and/or full article. Authors may register their systematic review (e.g. in a registry such as PROSPERO) and provide the registry number in their article. Meta- analysis of observational studies requires a MOOSE checklist for meta-analysis of observational studies.
  • The information below is adapted from the Journal of Advanced Nursing (JAN).
  • The manuscript should be organised according to the following subsections:
  • Abstract (Structured Aims, Design, Data Sources (include search dates), Review Methods, Results, Conclusion and Impact), 250 words and keywords.
  • Introduction (Include rationale, conceptual or theoretical context, and topic’s relevance.)
  • Background and Aims (Present the scientific, conceptual or theoretical framework that guided the review, identifying and providing an overview of the conceptual model and/or theory where appropriate. Identify key concepts or variables. Include research topic/objectives/questions/hypothesises).
  • Design (The review design should be the most appropriate for the review question. Identify type of review and describe design and methods used in detail. Report processes and steps used and any methodological adaptations/deviations (if any) with supporting rationale.) Report original methodological sources of reference for the review design and methods.
  • Search methods (Include: Development, testing and choice of search strategies (consider using a supplemental information file to report searches), inclusion/exclusion criteria, databases searched, keywords, languages and inclusive dates of the literature searched.)
  • Search outcome and audit trail (application of inclusion/exclusion criteria, retrieval and selection of references and handling. Summarise included studies (and, if appropriate, excluded studies) in separate tables).
  • Quality appraisal (Please note that for most systematic review approaches quality appraisal is mandatory and considered the primary marker of a systematic review. Include a description of approaches used, outcome of appraisal process and audit of discarded studies. Make clear the criteria that were used for discarding studies. If quality appraisal was not undertaken provide a convincing and robust explanation, and in the limitations section outline the potential impact on the credibility of the review findings.)
  • Data abstraction (Describe the methods and processes).
  • Synthesis (Include clear description of processes used).
  • Result ( Present the results of your review using appropriate subheadings outlined here and adhere to relevant standard(s) of reporting. Include a flow diagram illustrating the flow of literature through the review. Review methods that involve multiple methodological stages/processes should report the outcome of each stage/process. If appropriate, identify each definition’s conceptual or theoretical context or discussion of the concept found in the literature.)
  • Discussion (Draw out the applicability, theoretical and practical implications of the review findings. End with limitations and strength and generalisability/transferability of the evidence.)
  • Conclusion (This should not be a summary/repetition of the findings. Clarify the contribution of the review to existing knowledge, highlight gaps in knowledge and understanding,  outline  future  research,  report  implications/recommendations  for practice/research/education/management as appropriate, and be consistent with the limitations. If appropriate, consider whether one or more theoretical frameworks could guide future research about the review topic.)
  • Systematic Reviews should contain 4000 - 4500 words, maximum number of references is 100, and maximum number of illustrations/Tables is 10.
