Title Page:

To ensure the integrity of the peer review process, every effort should be made to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other.

When you sent a submission file, author identities should be removed from it. You should upload the title page as a supplementary file for the editor to review.

1. Title: Be concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible. If you choose to have a subtitle, it should be italicized and centered directly below the main title.

2. Authors’ Names and Affiliations: The preferred form of an author's name is first name, middle initial(s), and last name; this form reduces the likelihood of mistaken identity. To assist researchers as well as librarians, use the same form for publication throughout your career; that is, do not use initials on one manuscript and your full name on a later one. Omit all titles (e.g., Dr., Professor) and degrees (e.g., Ph.D., Psy.D., Ed.D.).

The authors’ affiliation identifies the location of the author(s) at the time the research was conducted, which is usually an institution. Include a dual affiliation only if two institutions contributed substantial support to the study. Include no more than two affiliations per author.

Preparation of Text:

Manuscripts should be organized in the following order: Title; abstract; key word (indexing terms, normally three-to-five items); introduction; methods, and/or techniques; results; discussion; conclusion; acknowledgements; references.

1. General Rules for Text: Please use the following rules for the entire text, including abstract, key word, headings and references.

Font: Browallia New; Size: 14 pt.

Paragraph Spacing: Above paragraph - 0 pt.; below paragraph - 0 pt.

Line Spacing: Single.

Heading: Browallia New; 16 pt.; Bold.

2. Abstract: A concise and factual abstract is required (maximum length of 250 words). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results, and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. References should therefore be avoided, but, if essential, they must be cited in full in the abstract, without relying on the reference list.

3. Key Word: Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 5 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (e.g., “and,” “of”). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible.

4. Subdivision of the Article: Divide your article into clearly defined. Any subsection, ideally, should not be more than 600 words. Authors are urged to write as concisely as possible but not at the expense of clarity.

5. Equations: The text size of equations should be similar to normal text size.

6. Tables: Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place a table’s caption above the table’s body and its description below the body. Avoid vertical rules. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.

Table 5 shows summary of outputs shortfall for 1389 and 1390.

7. Figures and Schemes: Number figures consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place a figure’s caption and description below the figure body. A minimum resolution of 300 DPI is required.

Note: Avoid abbreviating the titles of tables, figures, and equations (i.e., Tab. 1, Fig. 2, Eq. 3) in the caption or in running text. Do not write “the table above/below” or “the figure on page 32,” because the position and page number of a table or figure cannot be determined until the pages are typeset.


Cite the work of those individuals whose ideas, theories, or research have directly influenced your work. They may provide key background information, support or dispute your thesis, or offer critical definitions and data. Citation of an article implies that you have personally read the cited work. In addition to crediting the ideas of others that you used to build your thesis, provide documentation for all facts and figures that are not considered common knowledge.

Citations in the Text: Each reference cited in the text must appear in the reference list, and each entry in the reference list must be cited in the text. However, two kinds of material are cited only in the text: references to classical works such as the Bible and the Qur’an, whose sections are standardized across editions, and references to personal communication. References in a meta-analysis are not cited in-text unless they are also mentioned in the text.

When formatting an in-text citation, give, in parentheses, the last name of the author of the cited work and the year it was published. For unpublished or informally published works, give the year the work was produced. Write “in press” in parentheses for articles that have been accepted for publication but that have not yet been published. Do not give a date until the article has actually been published.

In all other instances, citations in the text should follow the referencing style used by the American Psychological Association.
