Text Details

The manuscript may have of 25 standard pages approximately, i.e., 45000 characters about including the references list. The preferred typeface is Times New Roman (*.doc, *docx, or *.rtf) with a 12-point font size. Use a sheet A4. Margins should be at least 1" all around (about 2.5 cm). Indent paragraphs, block quotes, and hanging indents one-half inch (1.25 cm or five to seven spaces). Double space the text, but single space within block quotes and the abstract. Single spacing can also be used for table titles and headings, figure captions, references (but double-spacing is required between references), footnotes, and long quotations.

Abstracts are limited to 300 words. Footnotes are used for author affiliation and contact information--the author note. If you need to add an explanatory note make it an endnote. Except of page 1, page numbers are required on every page: Number pages consecutively.

The page header summarizes the title in a few words. The header and page number go inside the margin space, double spaced above the text, next to the right margin, except on the title page.

Follow Headings this way:

Level A Heading Centered and Set in Heading Caps

Level B Heading: At Left Margin, Italicized, in Heading Caps

Level C heading: Indented, italicized, sentence caps. These paragraph or

run-in headings end with a period (or other punctuation); are not complete sentences.

Figures and tables embed in text. Ensure they should be placed next to the relevant text in the manuscript, rather than at the bottom or the top of the manuscript.

Abbreviations are allowed for the key phrases repeated in the text or for commonly used terms. Every abbreviation should first be given in complete form.

Use the quotes of the following type: « .... ». Using quotes within the quotation applies another type of quotation marks (e.g: « .... "...." ... »).

It is necessary to distinguish between hyphens (-) and dash (–). Between two numbers use a dash without gaps (e.g. 120–125). Between initials and surname must affix a gap (e.g., Ivanov, I. I.).

Tabs, forced divisions of words, increased spacing between words and paragraphs are not acceptable.

Endnotes are issued after the text before the References.

Use the author-date format to cite references in text. For example: as Smith (1990) points out, a recent study (Smith, 1990) shows. . . . Every source cited in your text--and only those sources cited in your text--are referenced in the reference list.
