Submission of Manuscript

The submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has never been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; and that its publication has been approved – tacitly or explicitly – by all co-authors, if any, as well as the responsible authorities at the institute where the work was done. The publisher will not be held legally accountable if any compensation claims are filed.


Authors who desire to include previously published figures, tables, or text excerpts in their papers must seek permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online formats, and give proof of such permission when submitting their papers. Without such proof, any material supplied will be believed to be from the writers.

Please provide a 200 to 250 word abstract. There should be no undefined abbreviations or unspecified references in the abstract.

Please provide 4-6 keywords that can be utilized for indexing.

Declarations and statements

For the published paper, the following statements should be put under the heading "Statements and Declarations." Please keep in mind that submission that doesn’t have the right declarations will be sent back as incomplete.

Competing Interests

Authors are required to say if they have any financial or non-financial interests that are directly or indirectly related to the work they are submitting for publication.

Text Formatting

  • Manuscripts should be sent in Word format.
  • Use a normal, simple font for text, like 12-point Times Roman.
  • Use italics to draw attention.
  • To number the pages, use the feature that does it automatically.
  • Field functions should not be used.
  • Don't use the space bar to make a space. Instead, use tab stops or other commands.
  • To make a table, use the table function, not a spreadsheet.
  • Save your file as a doc or docx file.


 Abbreviations should be explained the first time they are used, and they should be used the same way after that.


Footnotes can be used to add more information, such as the citation of a reference from the list of references. They shouldn't just be a list of references, and they shouldn't have any of the bibliographic information about a source. They also shouldn't have any tables or figures in them.


People, grants, funds, and other things that should be thanked should be listed in a separate section on the title page. The full names of the groups that give money should be written down.

References \ Citation

Name and year should be put in parentheses after the reference in the text. Some examples:

  • Research on parenting covers a wide range of fields (Shukla 1998)
  • Dubey and Agarwal (2003) later rebuked these conclusions.
  • Many investigators have looked into this e (Diener & Diener, 1995; Keith, Heal & Schalock, 1996; Oishi, Diener, Suh & Lucas, 1999)

List of references

Only works that are mentioned in the text and have been published or accepted for publication should be on the list of references.

Personal communications and works that haven't been published should be mentioned in the text only.

The last name of the first author of each work should be used to sort the names in the reference list. Please sort by alphabet following these rules:

1) For one author, list the name of the author first, then the date the book was written.

2) For two authors, list the name of the first author, then the name of the second author, then the date the book was written.

If possible, please always include full DOI links (like "https://doi.org/abc") in your reference list.
