Author Guidelines

Manuscript Presentation

The journal's language is English. There are limits on the number of pages for accepted manuscripts. Including references, tables, figures, and appendices etc. maximum page limits are as follows:

  • qualitative studies (including position papers) 36 pages of printed text,
  • quantitative studies 25 pages of printed text. 

Manuscripts should follow the latest edition of the American Psychological Association (APA) Style Manual. 


Within the manuscript all pictures, graphs, and diagrams should be referred as a figure and they should be numbered consecutively (1, 2, etc.). Multi-part figures ought to be labeled with lower case letters (a, b, etc.). Keys and scale bars need to be inserted directly in the figures. Relatively small text and great variation in text sizes within figures should be avoided as figures are often reduced in size. Figures may be sized to fit approximately within the page margins of the journal. A detailed legend (without abbreviations) should be provided for each figure. Figures should be referred in the text by explaining their meaning and the need for their use. 
Each table should be numbered consecutively. In tables, footnotes are preferable to long explanatory material in either the heading or body of the table. Such explanatory footnotes, identified by superscript letters, should be placed immediately below the table. Please provide a caption (without abbreviations) to each table, refer to the table in the text and note its approximate location in the margin. Finally, please place the tables after the figure legends in the manuscript.
Figures and tables should have their positions clearly marked and be provided after the references in the main text.

Please use endnotes rather than footnotes. Notes should be indicated by consecutive superscript numbers in the text and listed at the end of the article before the References. A source reference note should be indicated by means of an asterisk after the title. This note should be placed at the bottom of the first page. 
Acknowledgements of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section before the References.
