The Issue of Bias

Avoid stereotyping on the basis of gender, race, or age. Accordingly

  • choose gender-neutral terms, such as sports person rather than sportsman
  • describe the person, not the disability: for example a person with visual impairment rather than a visually impaired person

Content Structure

Manuscripts should use the following content structure

  • Ⅰ. Introduction
  • Ⅱ. Related Literature
  • Ⅲ. Methodology
  • Ⅳ. Results
  • Ⅴ. Discussion
  • Ⅵ. Conclusion and Recommendation

Manuscript Style

The manuscript should

  • show the article's title, author’s name, and affiliation in center text
  • include an abstract in italicized text that should not exceed 250 words (for research paper)
  • include 3-5 keywords, terms or phrases describing the article to assist searching
  • use Times New Roman font, size 12 for all text, main headings should be all caps, bolded, first-tier subheadings should be bolded, and second-tier subheadings should be bolded italicized
  • use a bolded, Times New Roman font, size 12 for table titles and size 10 for table numbers and text.
  • should have the first sentence of every paragraph indented by tapping the space bar five times.
  • use a ‘references’ style format, which provides a hanging indent, for the reference list.
  • comply with the modified APA referencing system.
  • should include page numbers in the text (even number upper left and odd number upper right)


Diagrams should have a caption appearing directly beneath it on the same page, be numbered successively, and must be referred to in the text. An example of how to provide an annotation for a diagram of a figure is given in Figure 1

  • Use Table commands to produce tables.
  • Tables should have a caption appearing above the table, be numbered successively, and be referred to in the text.

Referencing must follow the updated APA reference style. To reference in the body of the manuscript, cite authors' last name and the year of publication in parentheses: for example, (Baker, 2019). When citing several authors within the same set of parentheses, use alphabetical order. Include only items cited in the text in the list of references.

Reference list entries should be alphabetized (no label such as book or journal) by the last name of the first author of each work. Remember to include a 6 point gap before the first reference (after the heading) under the Format menu in the Paragraph commands. References should be listed at the end of the paper.
