Author Guidelines

JISEL’s manuscript preparation and style guidelines follow, with a slight modification, documentation Harvard-Anglia 2008.

Each manuscript must include a reference list containing only the quoted work and using the Mendeley tool. Each entry should contain all the data needed for unambiguous identification. With the author-date system, use the following format recommended by Harvard-Anglia.

1. Format

The manuscripts should be typed in A4 (210mm x 297mm), 12-point Times News Roman font and must be 1.5 line-spaced, except indented quotations and abstract. The manuscript must be saved as a word file. All pages, including tables, appendices and references, should be serially numbered. Spell out numbers from one to ten, except when used in tables and lists, and when used with mathematical, statistical, scientific or technical units and quantities, such as distances, weights and measures. For example: three days; 3 kilometers; 30 years. All other numbers are expressed numerically. Authors are encouraged to use JISEL template. Sample template is included at the end of this document.

2. Language

The manuscript must be written in good academic English. Spelling follows Webster’s International Dictionary. To ensure anonymous review, authors should not identify themselves directly or indirectly in their papers. Single author should not use the word “we”. Authors for whom English is not their native language are encouraged to have their paper checked before submission for grammar and clarity.

3. Article Length

The body of paper must range between 6000-10.000 words, written in MS word.. The allowable length of the manuscript is at Editor’s discretion; however, manuscript with a length less or exceeding the words may be return to the author(s) for revision before the manuscript is considered by the Editors. The word count excludes table, figures, and references.

 

4. Article Title

The title of the article should be specific and effective, approximately 150 characters. Write an article title using simple and straightforward language that can offer readers a glimpse of the content with their first glance.

 

5. Author name and Affiliations

The full name of each author, affiliation of each author at the time research was completed and addressed to each author including full postal address, telephone, and email addresses.

 

6. Abstract

The abstract should stand alone, means that no citation in the abstract. The abstract should concisely inform the reader of the manuscript’s purpose, its methods, its findings, and its value. The abstract should be relatively nontechnical, yet clear enough for an informed reader to understand the manuscript’s contribution. The manuscript’s title, but neither the author’s name nor other identification designations, should appear on the abstract page. An abstract, of no more than 250 words, should be presented in English preceding the text of the manuscript.

 

7. Keywords

Keywords are an important part of abstract writing. Authors should select a maximum of 5 keywords that are specific and reflect what is essential about the articles. Keywords and the article classification should be provided after the abstract.

 

8. Main Article

Introduction

Literature Review

Methods

Result and Discussion

Conclusion

Acknowledgment (if any)

References

Authors may use some flexible term for the subheading following the above main heading. Authors are encouraged to use manuscript’s template that is found at the end of this guideline.

9. Transliteration Rule

All terms or titles in Arabic should be transliterated with following the Library of Congress guide. Name of person should not be transliterated.

10. Artwork

Author must provide high quality artwork for all illustrations. Poor resolution or definition is not acceptable. Tables and Figures should be numbered separately. (Table 1, Table 2; Figure 1, Figure 2). Each table and figure should be given a title and should be presented on a separate page at the end of the manuscript. Figures and tables reproduced from already published work must be accompanied by permission of the original publisher (or copyright holder, if not the publisher). Please indicate the position of figures and tables in the text.

11. Questionnaires and Experimental Instruments

Manuscripts reporting on field surveys or experiments should include questionnaires, cases, interview plans or other instruments used in the study.

12. Citations

Work cited should use the “author-date-system” keyed to a list of works in the reference list (See below).

  1. In the text, works are cited as follows: author’s last name and date, without comma, in parentheses: for example, (Becker 1987); with two authors: (Hannan and Freeman 1984); with more than two: (Sanders et al. 1985); with more than one source cited together (Jones 1987; Freeman 1986); with two or more by one author: (Jones 1987, 1989).
  2. When the reference list contains more than one work of an author published in the same year, the suffix a, b, etc., Follows the date in the text citation; for example, (Jones 1987a; Jones 1987b)
  3.  If an author’s name is mentioned in the text, it need not be repeated in the citation.
  4. Citation to institutional works should use acronyms or short titles where practicable.

13. Reference

Every manuscript must include a list of references contain only the works cited. Each entry should contain all data necessary for unambiguous identification. With the author-date system, use the following format recommended by the Harvard Styles:

  1. Arrange citations in alphabetical order according to the surname of the author or the name of the institution responsible for the citation.
  2. Use author’s initials instead of proper names.
  3. In listing more than one name in references (Molyneux, P., and J. Thornton,…) there should always be a comma before “and.”
  4. Dates of publication should be placed immediately after the authors’ names.
  5. Titles of journal should not be abbreviated.
  6. Multiple works by the same author(s) should be listed in chronological order of publication. Two or more works by the same author(s) in the same year distinguished be letters after the date.

Recommendation for reference:

  1. Authors are encouraged to have references mainly from primary sources (at least 80% of the references), such as research articles in journals, proceedings, working paper, or dissertation.
  2. Authors are encouraged to have references that are up-to-date references (at least 80% references dated within the last 10 years).
  3. Authors should avoid excessively referencing your own work (self citation).
