Paper Submission Guide

ORIGINALITY CHECK

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the authorities responsible where the work was carried out. Copyrights for articles are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. Authors have rights to reuse, reprint, archive, and distribute their own articles after publication. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work.  

All submissions will be checked by iThenticate before being sent to reviewers. Those found more  plagiarised will be rejected outrightly (desk rejection).

Manuscripts should be prepared in Microsoft Word format and submitted online. The editors reserve the right to edit or otherwise alter all contributions, but authors will receive proofs for approval before publication. If you have any questions, please contact the editor of the journal.

Paper Selection and Publication Process

  1. a) Upon receipt of a submission, the editor sends an e-mail of confirmation to the submission’s author within one to three working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, your submission e-mail may have been missed.
  2. b) Peer review. We use a double-blind system for peer-review; both reviewers’ and authors’ identities remain anonymous. The paper will be reviewed by at least two experts: one editorial staff member and at least one external reviewer. The review process may take 2 to 3 weeks.
  3. c) Notification of the result of review by e-mail.
  4. d) If the submission is accepted, the authors revise accordingly and pay the publication fee.
  5. e) A PDF version of the journal is available for download on the journal’s webpage free of charge.

1. General Requirements

1.1 Language and Numbers

Please write your text in proper English; American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of both. We only accept manuscripts written in English.

1.2 Length of Paper

Papers between 3,000 and 8,000 words are preferred.

2. Title Page

2.1 Title

Be concise and informative. The title is often used in information-retrieval systems and should be no more than 15 words in length and not contain abbreviations or words that serve no purpose. If you choose to have a subtitle, it should be italicized and centered directly below the main title.

2.2 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. Determining whether Juanita A. Smith is the same person as J. A. Smith, J. Smith, or A. Smith can be difficult, particularly when citations span several years and institutional affiliations. Omit all titles (e.g., Dr., Professor) and degrees (e.g., PhD, PsyD, EdD).

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. If an author has no institutional affiliation, list the city and state of his/her residence. The names of the authors should appear in the order of their contributions, centered between the side margins. For names with suffixes (e,g., Jr. and II), separate the suffix from the rest of the name with a space instead of a comma. Only provide a complete mailing address of the corresponding author for correspondence.

 Example:

Anne Smith1, Mary A. Meade1,2, David Wolf II1 & Charles Rockefeller Jr.2

1 School of Management, Northern Canada University, Toronto, Canada

2 School of Economics, Peking University, Beijing, China

Correspondence: David Wolf II, E-mail: davidwolf@gc.ca, ORCID 0001.2332.234...

3. Preparation of Text

Manuscripts should be organized in the following order:

Title; abstract; keywords (indexing terms, normally three-to-six items); introduction; material and methods; results and discussion; conclusion; conflict of interest; references.

3.1 General Rules for Text

Please use the following rules for the entire text, including abstract, keywords, headings, and references.

Font: Times New Roman; Size: 10 pt.

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

Line Spacing: fixed, 1.15 pt.

3.2 Abstract

A concise and factual abstract is required. It should be between 150 and 200 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. 

3.3 Keywords

Immediately after the abstract, provide 3-7 keywords in alphabetical order, 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. Listing your keywords will help researchers find your work in databases.

3.4 Subdivision of the Article

Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections (e.g., 1., 2., 3., etc.). Subsections should be numbered 1.1, 1.2, etc., and sub-subsections should be numbered 1.1.1, 1.1.2, etc. Note that the abstract is not included in section numbering.

3.5 Equations

The text size of equations should be similar to normal text size. The formula should be placed center justified with serial number on the right. For example:

a=[(1+b)/x]1/2(1)

3.6 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.

3.7 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. You may resize the figures or schemes to fit the page size.

Figure 1 Figure Title

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.

4. Conclusion

The author should clearly explain the important conclusions of the research highlighting its significance and relevancy.

5. References

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.

Reference should be cited in text

Example:

They may provide key background information [1]. 

 For references citation, follow the below mentioned points.

Point 1. All authors name

Example:

Anne Smith, Mary Meade, Kami David Wolf, Charles Rockefeller. These are the full name of authors in the paper.

Correct cited form of authors below,

Smith A, Meade M, Wolf K.D, Rockefeller C.

 Point 2. After names then year of publication

Example:

(2002).

Point 3. After year of publication then paper title

Example:

The influence of social and economic disadvantage in the academic performance.

Point 4. After paper title then Journal full name in italic

Example:

International Research Journal of Advanced Sciences,

Point 5. After Journal full name then volume and issue of the paper

Example:

Volume 2 (issue1), issue should be in bracket so 2(1),

Point 6. After volume and issue, then published paper start and end page numbers

Example:

10-16.

SO, final reference should be like,
