PLEASE NOTE: Stemming from a decision taken by the Editorial Board, only an English abstract (approximately 200 words) is now required (an Afrikaans abstract is no longer required); this applies to all article submissions; (in the case of non-English articles, the title of the article should be translated into English); effective immediately.
