Man­u­scripts should con­tain the fol­low­ing sec­tions: title page, abstract, text, ref­er­ences, foot­notes, table and fig­ures.

Title page: The title of the paper and the names of the authors should be giv­en in full, togeth­er with the address­es of the insti­tu­tions. A short title will be used as a run­ning head for the pub­lished arti­cles. Type the name of the author(s) in the order of their con­tri­bu­tion and include full con­tact details (email, tele­phone, address) and insti­tu­tion­al affil­i­a­tion. Authors are asked to iden­ti­fy a top­ic for the paper and pro­vide a list of key­words (the list should not exceed 6–7 words).

Abstract: Abstract should be a con­cise sum­ma­ry (max­i­mum 150–200 words) of the research and major con­clu­sions. It should out­line the aims of the study, method­ol­o­gy, and the main find­ings.

Text: Please begin the text on a new page, and iden­ti­fy the first text page with the num­ber 3. The sec­tions of the text fol­low each oth­er with­out a break.

Ref­er­ences: APA 5th edi­tion. Start the ref­er­ences list on a new page. Dou­ble-space all ref­er­ences entries. Ref­er­ences should be list­ed alpha­bet­i­cal­ly at the end of the paper.

Tables and Fig­ures: Tables and Fig­ures should be placed at the end of the man­u­script (one table or fig­ure in each page) and need titles and explana­to­ry leg­ends where appro­pri­ate. Tables and Fig­ures should not dupli­cate infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed in the text and their mean­ing should be under­stand­able with­out ref­er­ence to tex­tu­al infor­ma­tion.

Acknowl­edg­ments: Where appro­pri­ate, sub­mit­ted man­u­scripts can include an acknowl­edg­ments sec­tion, which briefly recog­nis­es impor­tant con­tri­bu­tions of oth­er par­ties to either the empir­i­cal research (e.g, fund­ing, analy­ses) or to the pro­duc­tion of the man­u­script (e.g., admin­is­tra­tive duties, proof read­ing).

Author licence agree­ment: When sub­mit­ting the final ver­sion of the accept­ed arti­cle, the author(s) must com­plete and sign a licence to pub­lish agree­ment. Please note that this form must be signed by all authors.

The final paper should be sub­mit­ted as a word-file.
