Authors Names and Contact Information
The name of the author will be written in Times New Roman 12 and bold (No capitals), on the left of the page. Underneath the department of the University he/she belongs to. Below the name of the University, comma, the country the University belongs to. Underneath, the email address of the author of the article should be placed. All in single space.
An abstract of 150-250 words is required, which needs to be explanatory enough to mention the main topic of the article, its structure and the findings that it tries to achieve.
A strong introduction engages the reader in the problem of interest and provides a context for the study at hand. In introducing the research concern, the writer should provide a clear rationale for why the problem deserves new research, placing the study in the context of current know ledge and prior theoretical and empirical work on the topic. Responsible scholarship stipulates that the writer properly credit the work of others. Whereas it is impractical to exhaustively describe all prior research, the most current and relevant studies should be cited. Swales and Feak (2004) identified four cornerstones of the introduction in a research paper, advising authors to establish current knowledge of the field; to summarize previous research, providing the wider context and background and the importance of the current study; to set the stage for the present research, indicating gaps in knowledge and presenting the research question; and to introduce present research, stating its purpose and outlining its design.
Within this framework, the writer states the hypotheses of the current study and their correspondence to the research design (APA, 2010, pp. 27–28).
In both quantitative and qualitative research, the use of appropriate methods of participant sampling, study design, measures, and statistical analysis critically influences the study’s methodological soundness. Calfee and Valencia (2007) suggested that good methodology can be described by the two “Cs”—clean and clear. The ideal Method section is written in a clear manner, such that another researcher could duplicate the study. Toward this end, the writer should provide a thorough description of methods of recruitment, participant characteristics, measures and apparatus, and procedures.
The Results section should include a summary of the collected data and analyses, which follows from the analytic plan. All results should be described, including unexpected findings.
Tables & Figures
Good tables and figures should be structured according to APA Style and be clear and self-explanatory so that, with their captions, they can stand apart from the text. In addition to Chapter 5 of the Publication Manual on displaying results, the interested writer may wish to consult the APA publication, Displaying Your Findings (Nicol & Pexman, 2010)
Number of Terms
Terms with etymology in Latin
Terms with etymology in Greek
Terms from Greek which arrived in Spanish through Latin
In the Discussion section, the writer evaluates and interprets the findings. This section should begin with a statement of support or nonsupport for the original hypotheses in light of the findings. If the hypotheses were not supported, the author considers post hoc explanations. In interpreting the results, authors consider sources of bias and other threats to internal validity, imprecision of measures, overall number of tests or overlap among tests, effect sizes, and other weaknesses of the study.
Limitations and a discussion of the importance of the findings should conclude the discussion. Providing a link to future research, the author may offer recommendations for further study. More specific recommendations are more useful. As Skelton (1994) observed, researchers too often end their papers with a recommendation that is “too imprecise to be operationalized, or too grand to be implemented by a decision at much lower than a ministerial level” (p. 459).
Papers need to be in Times New Roman Font, 12 point. The title goes in capital letters, centered, bold in 14 size. Submitted articles will have an introduction and other headers within the article such as Methodology, Results, Discussion/Conclusion. They will be numbered.
Quotes of more than two lines will go intended from both sides and in font size 10 without quotation marks. If the quote is of two lines or less it will be included in the text within quotation marks.
For a sample paper please consult articles available in the issues published.
