Authors for whom English is not their native language are encouraged to have their papers checked before submission for grammar and clarity.
  4. Each manuscript is reviewed by the editor for general suitability for this journal. For those considered suitable, reviewers will be selected and a double blind review process will take place. Using the recommendations of the reviewers, the editor will then decide whether the manuscript should be accepted, revised or rejected for publication.
  5. Article Title The title of the article should be specific and effective, and approximately not more 14 words. Write an article title using simple and straightforward language that can offer readers a glimpse of the content with their first glance.
  6. Author’s name and Affiliations The full name of each author, the affiliation of each author at the time the research was completed. The address for corresponding author including the full postal address, telephone, and email addresses.
  7. Abstract The abstract should stand alone, meaning that no citations are in the abstract. The abstract should concisely inform the reader of the manuscript’s purpose, its methods, its findings, and its value. The abstract should be relatively nontechnical, yet clear enough for an informed reader to understand the manuscript’s contribution. An abstract, of no more than 200 words
  8. Keyword Keywords are an important part of writing an abstract. Authors should select a maximum of five keywords that are specific and reflect what is essential about the article. Keywords and the article’s classification should be provided after the abstract.
  9. Main Article
    1. Introduction What is the purpose of the study? Why are you conducting the study?The main section of the article should start with an introductory section which provides more details about the paper’s purpose, motivation, research methods and findings. The introduction should be relatively nontechnical, yet clear enough for an informed reader to understand the manuscript’s contribution.
    2. Literature Review In this section, the author will discuss the purpose of a literature review.
    3. Methods This section typically has the following sub-sections: sampling (a description of the target population, the research context, and units of analysis; sampling; and respondents’ profiles); data collection; and measures (alternatively: measurement).
    4. Results The author needs to report the results in sufficient detail so that the reader can see which stastical analysis was conducted and why, and later to justify their conclusions. Reporting results: The author may assume that the reader has a working knowledge of basic statistics (i.e., typically the contents covered in a 1st statistics course).
    5. Discussion Different authors take different approaches when writing the discussion section. According to Feldman (2004:5), Perry et al. (2003: 658), and Summers (2001: 411412), the discussion section should:
      1. Restate the study’s main purpose;
      2. reaffirm the importance of the study by restating its main contributions;
      3. summarize the results in relation to each research objectives or hypothesis, without introducing new material;
      4. relate the findings back to the literature and to the results reported by other researchers;
      5. provide possible explanations for any unexpected or non-significant findings;
      6. discuss the managerial implications of the study;
      7. highlight the main limitations of the study that could influence its internal and external validity;
      8. and discuss insightful (i.e., non-obvious) directions or opportunities for future research related to the topic.
    6. Conclusion In this section, the author presents brief conclusions from the results of research with suggestions for advanced researchers or general readers. A conclusion may cover the main points of the paper, but do not replicate the abstract in the conclusion.
    7. References In writing the article, the author(s) are required to use reference management tools (Mendeley) in writing the citation and list of references (using APA style). Authors may use some flexible terms for the subheading following the main heading.
