1-1: English Language Writing

KUJAS is receiving articles which written in English language ONLY. Authors whose English is not their mother language, should ensure their manuscript is written in academic English before submission. The KUJAS does not provides language and copy-editing services; hence, authors who feel their manuscript may require editing to reduce possible grammatical or spelling mistakes are encouraged to obtain such services before submission. Authors are responsible for all costs associated with such services.


1-2: New Submissions

The KUJAS accepts online submission, and the author will receive instructions steps for creating and uploading the manuscript files. Author is permitted to submit the entire manuscript as one file for the refereeing process. This can be a Word document (*.Docx) that referees use to assess the manuscript. In order to reduce the possibility of the manuscript being rejected, all figures and tables should be embedded and included in the main manuscript file in the results section. 

1-3: References

References list must be provided according to the format of the KUJAS references in a consistent style. Where appropriate, it should be formatted as follows,

First author's Surname, first letter (Capital letter) for first author's name., Second author's Surname, first letter (Capital letter) from second author's name., ETC, publication year. Article name (ONLY FIRST LETTER MUST BE CAPITAL LETTER). Journal's full name, volume(issue), article starting page like ( without parentheses.

Please note that don't print your references using Mendeley or Endnote software or any other references citation software; using manual print using MS Word is the only method that is acceptable by KUJAS, else a state of rejection will be chosen. In addition, the DOI is obligatory to be embedded at the end of each reference; if this ID is not available, the reference URL can be used; failure to conduct these minimal requirements for reference format and style will increase the chance of manuscript rejection.


1-4: Revised Submissions

The authors are required to submit their Manuscript in KUJAS format in a Word document with the extension * . Docx only at the revision stage, regardless of the file format of the initial submission. Keep the text's layout as straightforward as you can. To avoid unnecessary errors, the authors are strongly advised to use 'spell-check' and 'grammar-check for the submitted manuscript. At this point, the main manuscript file should be updated with the author(s) name, affiliation, emails, and ORCID.
