  4. If you have tables in your article, please refer to the following design. The table is aligned center and the description is at the top left of the table. The font size in the table may be adjusted.
  5. The Journal operates a peer review process and promotes blind reviewing. To facilitate this process, the author’s names (without academic titles), institutional affiliations, and the email address of the corresponding author should appear only on a detachable cover sheet.
  6. Contributor(s) should include a short CV describing his/her/their current position and activities in not more than 80 words.

  10. Block citation should be 1 cm indented and italicized.
  11. The introduction should consist of the background of the study, research contexts, and research objective. All introductions should be presented in the forms of paragraphs, not pointers, with the proportion of 15-20% of the whole article length.

  14. The conclusion section consists of the summary, restatement, and comment or evaluation of the main findings.
  15. Every source cited in the body of the article should appear in the reference, and all sources appearing in the reference should be cited in the body of the article.
  16. The sources cited should at least 80% come from scientific journals, books, and research reports, including theses and dissertations published in the last 10 years.
  17. Citation is done using bracket (last name and year of publication, Ex: (Chomsky, 1981)). When the sources are cited verbatim, the page number is included (p. 78 or pp. 78-89).
