The layout of articles will
follow a standard format. However, the ARC will encourages innovation by both authors and editors
in article layout, design and content through the use of their institutional logos, alternative

valuable as it provides skills for the production of books, articles, newsletters, etc. very easily
The creative contribution of
authors or editors makes articles more exciting, accessible, and interesting.
