Instructions For Authors

Manuscript Preparation. Manuscripts, including tables, figures and references should be prepared according to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition). Manuscripts should be written in simple, clear, and bias-free language. They should present ideas in a logical order, starting with a description of research purpose and progressing through an analysis of data to conclusions and implications. All manuscripts should include an abstract on a separate page that contains no more than 150 words, and also up to five key words.

Masked Review Policy: This journal adopts a policy of masked review. Therefore, authors should prepare the cover letter containing 1) title of the article, 2) corresponding author's full name, affiliation, institutional and email address, and telephone and fax numbers, and 3) co-author (s)' full names (s) and affiliation (s). Authors should not provide any clues to the authors' identity in the text.

Length and Style of Manuscripts. Full-length manuscripts generally should not exceed 30 pages (including cover page, abstract, text, references, tables, and figures), with a standard font (e.g., Times New Roman) of 12 points. Papers that exceed this page limit will be considered in limited occasions. The entire paper must be double spaced.
