Information for Authors
REVIEW PROCESS: All manuscripts shall undergo a blind and independent review process. As such, authors are requested to submit a separate cover sheet containing the article title, author’s name, and institutional affiliation. Every effort should be made to remove any clue as to the author’s identity. The Editor will ensure that each cycle of the review process takes no more than six months.
LENGTH: Articles should be from 6,000 to 10,000 words (inclusive of tables, figures, references, and supplementary materials). Book reviews should be no more than 2,000 words.
TITLE: Titles and section headings should be clear and brief.
ABSTRACT: An abstract of up to 150 words is required. A maximum of five keywords should be written below the abstract.
TYPING: Articles should be word-processed (in Microsoft Word format, Times New Roman font 12 points), and double-spaced throughout. Margins on all sides should be from 1 in. to 1.25 in.
LANGUAGE AND SPELLING: Articles should be in English. Quotations of text extracts in other languages should be translated. UK or US spellings may be used, but usage must be consistent throughout.
DOCUMENTATION: In citing sources in text and on the list of references, the style guidelines of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA, 5th Edition, 2001), should be followed.
TABLES AND FIGURES: Tables and figures should be numbered and have short descriptive titles. Camera-ready artwork should be supplied for all figures and images. Gray-scale or line art images are acceptable. Color images will not be printed.
QUOTATIONS: Short quotations in the text itself should be marked as such with “double quotation marks”. Lengthy quotations (over five lines or 50 words) should be indented in the text without quotation marks.
SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: To be considered for possible publication in the incoming issue of the journal, manuscripts should be submitted on or before March 30. Those submitted beyond this deadline will be considered for the next issue. All contributions should be in MS Word and PDF formats, and sent as e-mail attachments to the following address: [email protected].
