Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Please write full address of each university/affiliation, including the country name, e-mail address and telephone number of each author.

Corresponding author

Also clearly write who is willing to handle correspondence at all stages of publication, also post-publication. Ensure that telephone number (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address.

Sponsoring information

Please also write if research is sponsored or supported by an organization.

General Rules for Text

Please use the following rules for whole text, including abstract, keywords, heading and references.

Front: Times New Roman; Size: 12

Line Spacing: fixed – 1 pt

Heading 1: Times New Roman; Size-12; Bold; for example, 1. Introduction

Heading 2: Times New Roman; Size-12; Italic; for example, 1.1 Research Methods

Heading 3: Times New Roman; Size-12; for example, 1.1.1 Analysis Result

Preparation of text


It must be concise (maximum length of 160-240 words). The abstract must be brief and state the purpose of the research, the main results and conclusions. 


Please write keywords after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords, avoiding general terms (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). 

Division of the article

Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1., 2., (then 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text.' Any subsection, ideally, should not be more than 600 words. Authors are urged to write as concisely as possible, but not at the expense of clarity.

Figure legends, figures, schemes

Present these, in this order, at the end of the article. They are described in more detail below. High-resolution graphics files must always be provided separate from the main text file.


Present tables, at the end of the article. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place description to tables below the table body. Avoid vertical rules. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.


The text size of formula should be similar with normal text size.


Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the authors.

Citations in the text

Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Avoid citation in the abstract. Unpublished results and personal communications should not be in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication.

Citing and listing of web references

As a minimum, the full URL should be given. Any further information, if known (author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list.


Citations in the text should follow the referencing style used by the APA , American Psychological Association. You can refer to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Latest Edition, .

List: References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters "a", "b", "c", etc., placed after the year of publication.
