Journal manuscript

The manuscripts should consist of 4000 s.d. 6000 words (excluding Abstract and References), written in Time News Roman (size 12, Justify). The manuscript is arranged into five sections: Introduction, Method, Results (Findings), Discussion, and Conclusion. Journal manuscripts must be written in English

Article Structure

Manuscripts should be compiled in the following order:

  • Title 

Titles (and subtitles) may be no longer than 18 words/phrases. 

  • Byline 

Byline should includes authors' names, affiliations, and a complete address for the corresponding author including an e-mail address. 

  • Abstract

A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separate from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. References should therefore be avoided, but if essential, they must be cited in full, without reference to the reference list. Nonstandard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. Abstracts of no less than 200 and no more than 250 words are required for all manuscripts submitted. Abstracts should contain the research urgency, research aim(s), research method, results or findings, and conclusion(s) and/or implication(s). 

  • Keywords

Immediately after the abstract, provide from 3 to 5 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, "and," "of"). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.

  • Main Text


State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. The gap in the existing knowledge on the topic filled by the author should be obvious. In the last paragraph of the introduction, it is mandatory that the research objectives and goals are specified


Provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced by an independent researcher. Methods that are already published should be summarized, and indicated by a reference. If quoting directly from a previously published method, use quotation marks and also cite the source. Any modifications to existing methods should also be described. This section should be divided into subsections following Tadibia Islamika Template.


The goal of the Results section is to present the main findings of the research without deducing their meaning. Here, the grouped data and the results of the statistical analyses carried out are included. Figures, tables and graphs are also placed here, as well as a summary or description of the data.


This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.


The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which should stand alone.


Please ensure that at least 30 % of references analysed in your paper are newly published sources from Scopus/WoS. Reference entries should strictly follow the format specified in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th edition). Include a DOI for all works that have a DOI, regardless of whether you used the online version or the print version (including book chapters). APA requires that the entries have a hanging indent. All references need to be in APA style before the manuscript can go into copyediting and will be returned to the author if the formatting is not complete. 

Please see our information pages on References in Text, Reference List and Footnotes as well as a Template.

Appendices (if appropriate).

If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc
