Author Guidelines

Author Guidelines

Articles to be chosen for peer review, copyediting and publication in this journal should be one of the followings.

1) Original research articles that have not been published elsewhere.  The manuscript should provide practical implication or academic value to the audience.

2) Academic review or position articles in humanities or social sciences

3) Reviews of text books or theoretical articles

4) Letter to the editor in terms of practical issues in social sciences or humanities.

Manuscript format

Manuscripts must be type-written in Times New Roman 12-point font, 1.5 spaced, including references, on either 8 1/2 x 11 inch or A4 Size. Allow margins of one inch on all four sides. Manuscripts must be submitted in Microsoft Word. A submission file must include the entire manuscript, including tables, figures, footnotes, and references in the same file. The maximum length of the entire manuscript is 25 pages.

1. The first page must include Title of paper, Name and title of author(s), affiliation(s), email address, phone number. It may include brief biography of the author(s).

2. The second page must include the title and Abstract that has no more than 250 words summarizing the article.

3. In the article text, sentences should begin with upper case letter and then lower case letters. Names, key terms or abbreviation may begin with upper case letter.

4. Footnote should be avoided to ensure readability and coherence of the texts. Reference should be referred to using a citation format.

5. A figure or illustration should be placed in a textbox (without text wrapping) so that they can be moved without affecting the texts.

    Graphs must have text labels on both vertical (y) and horizontal (x) axes.  The ordinate label should be centered above the ordinate axis; the abscissa label should be placed beneath the abscissa. Place all calibration tics inside the axis lines, with the values outside the axis lines.

    The figure number and title should be typed on the same line, centered just below the figure. Complex tables and all figures must be on disk and camera-ready. Table and figure headings should be typed on a separate page and attached to the appropriate camera-ready art. Lettering should be large enough to be read easily with 50% reduction. Do not submit camera-ready art or high resolution graphic file until your manuscript has been accepted. If the artwork is completed, submit photocopies.

6. The table number and title should be typed on the same line, just above the table. Designate units (e.g. %,$) in column headings. Align all decimals. Refer to tables in text by number. Avoid using "above", "below", and "preceding". If possible, combine closely related tables, and do not allow tables to break across pages. Make sure the necessary measures of statistical significance are reported with the table.

7. Mathematical notation must be clear within the text. Equations should be centred on the page. If equations are numbered, type the number in parentheses flush with the left margin. Unusual symbols and Greek letters should be identified by a marginal note. If equations are too wide to fit in a single column, indicate appropriate breaks.

8. To improve the readability of the manuscript, any mathematical proof or development that is not critical to the exposition of the main part of the text may be placed in a technical appendix.

9. References, typed double spaced in alphabetical order by author's last name. Citations in the text should be by the author's last name and year of publication enclosed in parentheses. For eg: (Kensey 1960).

If a particular page, section, or equation is cited, it should be placed within the parentheses: (Kensey 1960, p. 112). For multiple authors, use the full citation for up to four authors; for five or more, use the first author's name followed by "et al." (No italics). A series of citations should be listed in alphabetical order and separated by semicolons: (Donnelly 1961; Kensey 1960; Wensley 1981).

10. Acknowledgement (If any).


References are to be listed alphabetically, last name first, followed by publication date in parentheses. Please follow APA 6th edition referencing style. The reference list should be typed double spaced on a separate page with left aligned and 0.5 inches hanging indent. Authors are responsible for the accuracy of their references. Check them carefully.
