The manuscript should be written in 6,000–20,000 words.

 

Content Format

Fonts: Please use Times New Roman. The title of the article should be centered and in 18-point font; section subtitles should be in 14-point font, and the body of text in 12-point font, both aligned flush left. 

Section subtitles: The subtitles should be aligned flush left.

Charts and graphs:

  • Charts should be marked by Arabic numerals; the name of the chart should be placed above said chart. If the chart appears in the appendix, please number it accordingly (such as Chart A1, A2, etc).
  • Graphs should be marked by Arabic numerals; the name of the graph should be placed above said graph. If the graph appears in the appendix, please number it accordingly (such as Graph A1, A2, etc).
  • All charts and graphs should be drawn in grayscale; please refrain from complicated color schemes.
  • Please try to keep relevant charts and graphs close together in the layout.
  • Please place the caption/description below the chart/graph.

 

Citations 

  • In-text citation should include cited author’s surname and the cited work’s year of publication, both enclosed within a half-width parenthesis; for instance, “(Kinsey, 1960)”.
  • If there are two authors of a cited work, both should be listed. When there are three or more authors, list the surname of the first author followed by “et al.” (do not use italics). For consecutive citations, arrange them alphabetically and separate them with semicolons, for example (Donnelly, 1961; Kinsey, 1960; Wensley, 1981).
  • If two cited works have three or more authors, and both the year of publication and the first author are the same, list the authors in order until the reader can distinguish the works. For example:
    Kapoor, Bloom, Montez, et al. (2017)
    Kapoor, Bloom, Zucker, et al. (2017)
  • For translated in-text citations, list the original author, followed by the publication year of the original work, then the publication year of the translation, for example, Piaget (1970/1972).

 

Mathematical formulae

  • The author should clarify the meaning and objective of the formula in the text. Overly complicated mathematical formulae (such as mathematical proof) should be placed in the appendix instead.
  • Please leave equations in the text; number equations with Arabic numerals; type numbers in parenthesis and align left. If the equation is too long to fit in one line, it should be clearly separated from the rest of the text.
  • Use footnote to clarify uncommon symbols and Greek alphabets.

References

List all references in alphabetic order. List the author’s surname first, followed by given name and the year of publication in parenthesis. In addition to surnames, use initials for authors’ first names. When there are fewer than 20 authors, list all authors’ names, connecting the last one with an ampersand (&). When there are 21 or more authors, list the first 19 authors, add an ellipsis in the middle, and then list the last author.

The author is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the references. Please check over the references carefully, making sure each quote is cited, and vice versa. Please refrain from listing unused references, and make sure that all quoted sources are documented accurately and fully.

Books: After the book title, you may add the edition number, which should not be italicized. Only list the publisher, without including the place of publication. If the book has a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), please provide it.
