*To support non-native speakers, JOELS Journal has partnered with Unilak Language Editor Team (ULET) to provide language editing and translation services for a fee. Note that employing the use of such services is not mandatory and using it, or any other language editing service, does not guarantee the acceptance of the manuscript as all submissions are subject to peer review.
