Reviewer’s Comments to Authors

Major Comments

  1. Abstract is not fulfilling its purpose. Abstract should cover the complete need of the study. It is advised to the author to give summarized view of entire study in the abstract part.
  2. Very important part of any research study is objective. This paper is not framed with any objective it seems. There is no any objective of the study in any part of the paper. Without objective a research study will not be a complete one. So, the researcher has to add objectives of the study.
  3. There is no information on the research methodology used for the study. Researcher should concentrate on this part and give the methodology of selecting this particular topic.
  4. There is no information on ‘research methodology’ used for the study. It is also important to mention whether the study is based on primary/secondary/both sources of data collections.
  5. No source of information given for the charts/pictures/figures/tables given in the study. It is important to add the source of collecting analytical information.
  6. All the reviews given in the ‘review of literature’ is directly giving what the previous study is saying. But here the author needs to give only the observed major findings of previous studies by the author should be given. There is no need of giving the analysis figures/charts as the previous authors gives it.
  7. There is no information on data collection, period of study, techniques used for collecting the data, footnote and findings for the study. The author should focus on the above mentioned parts which are mainly needed for a research study.
  8. Too many information has given randomly which is not particularly meet out the need for the study. The author should eliminate some data which is not relevant to the study.
  9. Non-frequency of the contents is there which are to be given more concentrate for valuable research study.

Minor Comments

  1. Conclusion of the study is not a complete one. It should be based on the major findings/observations by the author.
  2. References should be listed in the paper. If this study is first hand study the researcher should produce valid proof or can include the reference details on the study.
  3. For every reference there should be a footnote in the relevant pages.
  4. Researcher can be highlight the research gap and pave the way for future research.
