2. Manuscript Preparation Guidelines

Starting from 2018, the articles published in the International Journal of Education will strictly follow the format of IMRAD (Introduction, Method, Results, and Discussion). The section of "Literature Review" will be omitted and the review of related literature should be integrated into the "Introduction" section.

Please download the article template for detailed instructions on how to format the manuscript.

Below are the guidelines for the manuscript:

2.1. Abstract

The abstract must indicate the importance of the topic or background and the purpose of the study, and it should summarize the methodology or approach, findings (for qualitative research) or results (for quantitative research), and implications. It should be kept as brief as possible, not exceeding 300 words. The abstract should be accompanied by 3-8 keywords written in alphabetical order.

2.2. Introduction

The introduction should consist of the background of the study, research contexts, state of the art, research gap, and research objective. It should be presented in the form of paragraphs, not pointers, with a proportion of 15-20% of the whole article length.

2.4. Method

The method section consists of a description concerning the research design, data sources, data collection, and data analysis with the proportion of  10-15% of the total article length, all presented in the form of paragraphs.

2.5. Findings/Results and Discussion

The findings (for qualitative research)/results (for quantitative research) and discussion section consist of a description of the results of the data analysis to answer the research question(s) and their meanings seen from current theories and references of the area addressed. The proportion of this section is 40-60% of the total article length.

2.6. Conclusions

The conclusion section consists of the summary, restatement, comment, or evaluation of the main findings.

2.7. References

Every source cited in the body of the article should appear in the references, and all sources appearing in the references should be cited in the body of the article.

The sources cited should at least 80% come from journal articles published in the last 10 years. The sources cited are primary sources in the forms of journal articles, books, and research reports, including theses and dissertations.

Citation is done using brackets (last name and year of publication). When the sources are cited verbatim, the page number is included (p. 78 or pp. 78-89).
