Guideline for Manuscript Submission for Scholar-Practitioners Journals:

1. Manuscripts should be prepared according to the guidelines of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Manuscripts which not adhere to these guidelines will not be sent out for reviews.

2. Because of the double-blind review, the authors’ information should not be included in the manuscript file. Please put authors’ information in the separated Title Page.

3. Manuscripts should be organized in the following order: Title; abstract; keywords (indexing terms, normally three-to-six items); introduction; material studied, area descriptions, methods and/or techniques; results; discussion; conclusion; acknowledgements; references.

4. Manuscripts should not exceed 30 double-spaced pages, including figures, tables, and references.

5. The title page should include the title of the article, name(s) of the author(s), affiliation(s), address(es), phone number(s), E-mail address(es), and a suggested running head (not to exceed 40 characters). To facilitate blind review, implications of authorship should appear only on the title page. The title page is to be followed by the abstract. The text of the paper should begin on the third page.

6. The abstract consisting of 100 to 150 words should provide a brief, comprehensive summary of the content of the manuscript.

7. Tables should be arranged sequentially and numbered in the order in which they appear in the text and placed at the end of the manuscript. Each table should have a caption centered above the table; explanatory notes to a table (e.g., probability levels, explanations of abbreviations, etc.) should appear at the bottom of the table.

8. Figures (graphs, line drawings, photographs, charts), numbered consecutively with their respective captions, should also be cited in the order in which they appear in the text. Figure captions should be typed double-spaced on a separate sheet of paper. All illustrations must be camera-ready; photographs must be of professional quality; and drawings should be prepared in ink or press-on tape.

9. Mathematical expressions and notations should be used judiciously and only as required by the subject matter. All symbols must be identified.

10. Footnotes to the body of the manuscript should not be used. Instead, the material they contain should be incorporated in the text.

11. References should be listed alphabetically at the end of the manuscript. References to the same author(s) are arranged according to the year of publication, the earliest first. Text citations must correspond accurately to the references in the bibliography. In the text, for references to the work of up to five authors, all authors should be cited the first time the reference occurs in the body of the manuscript; in subsequent citations the surname of the first author should be followed by et al. and the year. Reference citations in parentheses should be arranged alphabetically

12. A biographical sketch of each author of approximately 250 words in length must be included at the end of the paper.

13. The final version of manuscript accepted for publication must be submitted electronically as a single Microsoft Word document or in a compatible file format.


Guideline for Abstract submission for International Conference on Interdisciplinary Research Studies (ICIRS)

An abstract is a brief, comprehensive summary of the contents of the article and it allows readers to survey the contents of an article quickly and, like a title; it enables persons interested in the document to retrieve it from abstracting and indexing databases. A well-prepared abstract can be the most important single paragraph in an article. The abstract needs to be dense with information by embedding key words to enhance the user’s ability to find it. Your abstract should be 100 to 150 words.
