Writting an Article


  • Articles should be no longer than 10 pages unless there is a compelling reason to include the additional information.
  • Use MS Word with double-column format. Keep the layout of the text as simple as possible. 
  • To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the 'spell-check' and 'grammar-check' functions of your word processor

Title Page Information

  • The title should be concise and informative. Titles are often used in information retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulas.
  • Author names and affiliations should be written below the title. Present the author's affiliation addresses below the names. Indicate all affiliations with the lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name. Provide the affiliation address, including each author's country name and email address.
  • The corresponding author should be indicated.
  • The abstract should briefly state the research's purpose, principal results, and major conclusions. References should be avoided, but if essential, use a citation (reference number in a square bracket). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided.
  • Keywords should be placed on the left part of the abstract. Provide 6 keywords at maximum. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.

Article Content

  • The introduction should be placed in Chapter 1. Please clearly establish the context for your study. It should be at least general and specific background information, a description of the gap in your knowledge that the study was designed to fill, a statement of the study objective, and a summary.
  • The research method should be placed in Chapter 2. Please describe detailed information regarding the material and research procedure, including participants, equipment and materials used, variables studied, actions or reactions of the participants, ethical approval, analysis, and statistical tools used. The information on participants should include who, how many, how they were included in the selection, why they were excluded, adherence to ethical practices, ethical approval, how the sample size was calculated, and what the sampling techniques were. The description of materials should include all materials, measurements, equipment, details of special equipment, etc. The study's design should include when the study was done, where, how data were collected, and the type of study, e.g. sectional, comparative, randomized, etc. The step-by-step details of how the study 'progressed' ensure the reader understands the logical flow and can replicate a similar study based on the description provided in this section.
  • The result and discussion should be placed in Chapter 3. Please provide information about the research results, including the measurement of data, variables, treatments, and statistical analysis. The author may use graphics and tables to display research data, show trends or relationships, or represent exact values. This chapter should provide information regarding the significance of your findings and gaps in knowledge.
  • The conclusion should be placed in Chapter 4. The author should summarize the study, including the significance of the research findings, contribution to knowledge, and implications for further research or action.
  • References should be provided after the Conclusion. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is present in the reference list. The citation of a reference as "in the press" implies that the item has been accepted for publication. Indicate references by number(s) in square brackets with the text. List the number of references (numbers in square brackets) in the list in the order in which they appear in the text. It is suggested that a reference manager application (such as Mendeley) be used to organize the references. A list of references should at least provide information including author names, year of publication, article title, journal/other publisher name, volume, issue, pages, or other important information.
  • Figures or graphics should be provided in a suitable resolution and proportional dimension for the content. All figures and graphics should be cited in the text near them. Give the number and title of the figures below based on their appearance in the text. Avoid print-screening or screenshots to maintain the figure quality.
  • Tables should be numbered by their appearance in the text. Avoid only one table row (for little data information, please write in text only). Write the data source below each table. Avoid print-screening or screenshots. Please re-write the reference table to maintain the resolution.
  • Math formulas should be simple and in line with normal text. Variables are presented in italics. Use numbers in brackets following their appearance in the text.
  • Acknowledgement should be collated in a separate section at the end of the article before references. Do not include them in the article's content. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance, proofreading the article, etc.)
