Preparation of Manuscripts

Manuscripts should be in English and written in a concise, straightforward style and use reference manager software with APA 7th style. Authors not fluent in English are advised to have their manuscript checked by a colleague with a good command of the language or use professional translation service. The manuscript should present scientific findings which are essentially new, and which have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Review papers are also welcomed.

1. Format:

Prior to submission, authors who believe their manuscript would benefit from professional editing are encouraged to use language-editing and copyediting services. Obtaining this service is the responsibility of the author and should be done before initial submission. A template (download) is available to guide authors in the preparation of the manuscript.

2. Length:

Although there is no page limit for a Regular Paper, it is strongly suggested that a complete manuscript be no less than 7 pages and no more than 15 pages (Times new Romans 11 pt, 1.0 space, including figures, tables, and references).

3. Sections of Manuscript:

Articles should be organized into the following sections:

Reviews and Mini-reviews - Article Title, Authors’ names, and institutional affiliations, Abstract and Keywords, Introduction, Main text (divided into subheadings), Conclusions, Acknowledgements (if any), Statement of Competing Interests, List of Abbreviations (if any), References.

Research Articles - Article Title, Authors’ names, and institutional affiliations, Abstract and Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgements (if any), Statement of Competing Interests, List of Abbreviations (if any), References

3.1 Title (20 words or less)

The title should accurately, clearly, and concisely reflect the emphasis and content of the paper. The title must be brief and grammatically correct. Titles do not normally include numbers, acronyms, abbreviations, or punctuation. They should include sufficient detail for indexing purposes but be general enough for readers outside the field to appreciate what the paper is about. The title should be no more than 20 words in length.

3.2 Authors’ names and institutional affiliations

This should include the full author names (with no titles or qualifications), institutional addresses (Institute, City, Post/Zip code, Country), and email addresses for all authors. Authors and affiliations must be linked using superscript numerals. The corresponding author should also be indicated.

3.3 Abstract and Keywords

The abstract should be comprehensive but concise consisting of no more than

An abstract is conveyed in 150-200 words, the information in an abstract is wider than the title but narrower than the body text. Purpose - Method - Result - Conclusion.

3.4 Introduction

Headline/master of paper - There are important issues raised in this research. Issues must be objective (issued by researchers in commendable journals or reported by reputable research institutions, not disputed by authors.

State of The Art - There is a series of stories about the efforts and results reported by other researchers from commendable journals to solve the problem. Every reference must be given appreciation and criticism in a polite manner, not just cataloguing citations.

Research gap - There is a statement regarding something that has escaped the attention of previous researchers or the potential that is available and has not been explored by previous researchers.

Novelty - There is a research idea that is supported by established theory (a clear concept, so the deduction is strong).

Objective - There is a research objective or purpose for this paper to be written.

3.5 Methods

There is an explanation of the method (unique, specific, detailed) how data or information is collected, which is accountable for research purposes and results (trace-able). Tools, materials, samples, scopes have been carefully presented and understandable.

There is an explanation on how to validate the collected data or information. If it is related to apparatus/equipment, make sure there is a way to calibrate it.

The method can be replicated by other people (researchers).

3.6 Results & Discussion

There are original research results in the form of pictures, tables, descriptions, or a combination thereof. Figures and tables are displayed in international standard, with high resolution. Figures and tables are given a caption (figure or table number) and mentioned/called out in the previous paragraph.

Authors provide arguments against research results that have been claimed, there is a logical causal explanation and arranged in the form of a 'new story'.

The author dialogues/connects research results with previous research results reported by researchers in commendable journals on a global scale.

The author has politely made statements strengthening or disputing previous research to clarify research contributions.

The initial conclusion section conveys the most important findings from the discussion that address the research objectives.

The final section of the conclusion conveys research implications, limitations (if any), and directions/opportunities for further research.

3.7 Conclusions

The initial conclusion section conveys the most important findings from the discussion that address the research objectives. The final section of the conclusion conveys research implications, limitations (if any), and directions/opportunities for further research.

3.8 Acknowledgements

The authors should first acknowledge the source of funding for the research presented in their article followed by any personal credits.

3.9 Statement of Competing Interests

Include an explicit disclosure of any competing interests (financial or others) that may have influenced the study, or the conclusions drawn from the study. If none, state 'the authors have no competing interests'.

3.10 List of Abbreviations

Define all non-standard abbreviations in parenthesis on their first appearance in the text as well as provide a list. Standard abbreviations need not to be included in the list.

3.11 References

Author/s last name (surname) first, followed by initials, year of publication in brackets. Title of article (Thompson, 2010). Capitalise only the first word of the title and the subtitle, if any, and proper names. Use a colon (:) between the title and subtitle. Title of the serial/journal in full in italics. Volume number, in italics. Do not use “Vol.” before the number.  Issue number. This is bracketed immediately after the volume number but not italicised. Month, season, or other designation of publication if there is no volume or issue number. Include all page numbers (Gabbett et al., 2010). Include any Digital Object Identifiers [DOI].

The database name and retrieval date are no longer required. Include the home page of the journal (Marshall et al., 2009). This may require a quick web search to locate the URL (Refer to the APA manual, p. 191-192, 199). Otherwise, simply reference the journal article as per the print version (check with your lecturer to ensure this is acceptable), (Huy et al., 2008).

The 7th ed. of the APA manual emphasizes the use of DOI (Digital Object Identifiers). Many publishers, databases and online journals use DOIs. They are alpha-numeric codes that usually appear on the first page of the article. Copy the DOI exactly as it appears (Gabbett et al., 2010).

If the article has no DOI, consider providing the home page URL of the journal. If you are accessing the article from a database, you may need to do a quick web search to locate this URL. It is not necessary to include the name of the database. No retrieval date is necessary for content that is not likely to be changed or updated (Crooks et al., 2010).

3.12 Tables

The table title should be concise, no more than one sentence. The rest of the table legend and any footnotes should be placed below the table. Footnotes can be used to explain abbreviations.

Tables must be cell-based, such as would be produced in a spreadsheet program or in Microsoft Word. Do not provide tables as graphic objects. Tables must be no larger than one printed page (7inches x 9.5inches). Larger tables can be published as online supporting information. Bold and italics formatting will be preserved in the published version; however, more extensive formatting will be lost. Do not include colour, shading, lines, rules, text boxes, tabs, returns, or pictures within the table.

All tables must be numbered consecutively (in Arabic numbers). Table headings should be placed (cantered) above the table. Place tables as close as possible to where they are mentioned in the main text. All Tables should be referred to in the text as Table 1, Table 2, etc.

3.13 Figures

Figures should be as small and simple as is compatible with clarity. The goal is for figures to be comprehensible to readers in other or related disciplines, and to assist their understanding of the paper. Unnecessary figures and parts (panels) of figures should be avoided: data presented in small tables or histograms, for instance, can generally be stated briefly in the text instead. Avoid unnecessary complexity, colouring, and excessive detail.

All illustrations should be original drawings or photographic prints of originals. Photographs should be glossy prints. Photocopies are often not good enough and should be avoided. All illustrations must be numbered consecutively, as Fig. 1, Fig. 2. Centre figure captions beneath the figure. Do not assemble figures at the back of your article but place them as close as possible to where they are mentioned in the main text. No part of a figure should go beyond the typing area.

3.14 Figure Legends

The aim of the figure legend should be to describe the key messages of the figure, but the figure should also be discussed in the text. Each legend should have a concise title of no more than 15 words. The legend itself should be succinct, while still explaining all symbols and abbreviations. Avoid lengthy descriptions of methods.

3.15 Equations

Number equations consecutively. Equation numbers, within parentheses, are to position flush right, as in Eq. (1) or equation (1), using a right tab stop.

(1) Note that the formula is cantered using a centre tab stop. Be sure that the symbols in your formula have been defined before or immediately following the equation. Use "Eq. (1)" or "equation (1)", not "(1)", in the sentences. Notation. Notation must be legible, clear, compact, and consistent with standard usage. In general, acronyms should be defined at first use.

Variables and Vectors. Set single-letter variables in italics (e.g. m). Set vectors in boldface (e.g. E). Derivative "d," abbreviations, and multi-letter identifiers should be set in roman (plain) type (e.g. cos, ∫...dx).
