Preparation of text

Abstract

The abstract should state the purpose of the research, the principal results, and major conclusions briefly. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. No citations should be included in the abstract, but if essential, they must be cited in full, without reference to the reference list. It should not exceed 250 words.

Keywords

The author should provide appropriate and short keywords immediately after the abstract. The maximum number of the keywords is 5, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, ‘and,’ ‘of’). Listing your keywords will help researchers find your work in databases.

Introduction

This section should be concise and define the background and significance of the research by considering the relevant literature, particularly the most recent publications. When preparing the introduction, please bear in mind that some readers will not be experts in your research field.

Subdivision of the article

Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1., 2., (then 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to ‘the text.’ Authors are urged to write as concisely as possible, but not at the expense of clarity.

Figures

Graphs, diagrams, chromatograms, photos, etc. should be prepared as clear, black and white (no color), original positives, suitable for reproduction. All figures should be embedded within the manuscript and must be captioned and numbered sequentially. Within figure images, use Constantia font with a type size between 8 and 14 points.

Results and Discussion

This section is a comparative or descriptive analysis of the study based on the results/findings, previous literature, etc. The results should be offered in a logical sequence, given the most important findings first and addressing the stated objectives of the study. The author should deal only with new or essential aspects of the results obtained. The relevance of the findings in the context of existing literature or contemporary practice should be addressed.

Conclusion

The author should clearly explain the principal conclusions of the research highlighting its significance and relevance.

Acknowledgments(optional)

The author is free to include acknowledgments or not. This section may include the names of people who contributed to the work in one way or another. It can also include information about supporting grants, funding sources, and so forth.

Citations and References

Author(s) must follow APA style (https://apastyle.apa.org/ or https://www.bibme.org/apa) in referencing.

Follow the guidelines for making ‘References'(Download).

About the References Section

Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the authors.

Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list and vice versa.

Reference List:

References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary.

Tables and Figures(If any)

The tables and figures should be presented at the end of the research.

Appendix 1 (if any)

Provide additional information if at all necessary here. Do not include unnecessary information, acknowledgment, publicity, etc.

Indent each paragraph after the introductory one. Only the paragraphs beginning immediately after a subheading will not be indented.

Italicize titles of books, journals, government documents. Put titles of book chapters and titles of journal, magazine, or newspaper articles in “quotations marks.”

Please use double quotation marks for quotes. If the sentence ends with a quote, please put the period mark before the quote.
