7. Acknowledgements (Optional)- Acknowledgments of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section on the title page. The names of funding organizations should be written in full.

8. References


1. MAIN TEXT-The manuscript must conform to current standards of English style and usage in Calibri (body) style Font 11. First and third-person pronouns are preferred for clarity. Abbreviations should generally be in accordance with the Systeme International d'Unites (S1) version of the metric system (Downs, 1988). Certain abbreviations, such as those for chemicals and standard procedures, should always be written first in full, followed by the abbreviation in parenthesis. Metric units must be used.  Footnotes should be avoided.  Use of italics should be indicated by single underlining for scientific names (except for authority), Latin expressions and descriptive foreign phrases.  In reporting measurements, more than three significant digits are rarely justified.

2. TABLES - Type tables on separate pages in the simplest form. Number each table with Arabic numerals, e.g., Table 1.  Tables should document, but not duplicate, data already given in the text.  

3. FIGURES- Number each figure in Arabic numerals (e.g. Fig. 1,2,3 .... ) and should be numbered consecutively throughout the paper. Photographs should have a glossy finish, be unblurred, and show a sharp contrast between light and dark areas.  

4. REFERENCES IN TEXT -Only articles or books that have been published or are in press may be included in the list of references. Any other material must be accompanied by permission from the source. References should be cited in the text using the Harvard system; citing the name(s) of the author(s) and the year of the publication. If the author(s) and the years are identical for more than one reference, insert lower case letters (in alphabetical sequence) after the year. Use semi-colons to separate multiple references and list in alphabetical and not chronological order. Examples:

  • One author: Kang'oro (1992) or (Kang'oro, 1987).
  • Two authors: Kang'oro and Kinja (1992) or (Kang'oro and Kinja, 1992)
  • Three or more authors: Kang'oro et al. (1992) or (Kang'oro et al., 1992)
  • More than one identical reference: (Kang'oro, 1992 a or Kang'oro, 1992 b
  • Multiple references: (Kang'oro,1992; Kinja,1928; Auma, 1990)

5. LIST OF REFERENCES - The citations should be listed alphabetically. With more than one reference to the same author, list them chronologically after the acknowledgment section but starting on a new page.  Use the International Serials Catalogue for abbreviations of journal names and when in doubt give the full name of the periodical.  Authors must verify references against the original documents before submitting articles.  The listing of journal articles should be as follows; author's name, year (in brackets), title of the paper, journal title (in italics), volume (in bold), issue (where necessary) and page numbers. Examples: Mutero C. M and Birley H. M. (1987).  The effect of pre-gravid development on the estimation of mosquito survival rates.  Journal of Applied Entomology. 107, 96 - 101.  For books the listing should be as follows; authors name, the year (in brackets) the title of the book (in italics), page reference, publishers name and the place of publication e.g.

  • Muirhead- Thompson E. C. (1982) Behaviour pattern of blood sucking flies. pp 220. Pergamon Press, Oxford.
  • Mutinga M. J. and Kamau C. C. (1992) Rearing of phlebotomine sandflies in techniques of insect rearing for the development of integrated pest and vector management strategies Ochieng'-Odero J.P.R. (Ed.) pp. 483-504.
  • Belsky A. J., Amundson R. G., Duxbury J. M., Riha S. J., Ali A. R. and Mwonga S. M. (1989). The effects of trees on their physical, chemical and biological environments in a semi-arid savannah in Kenya. Journal of Applied Ecology, 26, pp 1005-1024.
