Manuscripts are accepted with the understanding that they are the original or extended version of previously published papers in conferences and/or journals and that, if the work received an official sponsorship, it has been duly released for open publication. Before submission please make sure that your paper is prepared using the journal paper template. The authors must refer to the EDUSOSHUM for writing format and style.

Carefully read the submission guidelines as follows:

  1. General Requirements

The minimum standard requirements of EDUSOSHUM must be

  1. Written in English.
  2. The length of the submitted paper is at least 6 pages and no more than 12 pages. Editors will be evaluated if the papers are needing more pages than 12 pages.
  3. Use of a tool such as Zotero, Mendeley, or EndNote for reference management and formatting
  4. Make sure that your paper is prepared using the EDUSOSHUM template (MSWord)
  1. Structure of The Manuscript

The manuscript must be prepared and suggested present follow the structure:

  1. Title. The title of the article should be fewest, without Acronym or abbreviation and maximum 15 words
  2. Abstract. The Abstract has 100-250 WORDS; No citation; State in the abstract a primary objective, research design, methodology, main outcomes and results, and the conclusions.
  3. Section structure. Authors are suggested to present their articles in the section structure:
    - Background: Authors have to make clear what the context is. Ideally, authors should give an idea of the state-of-the-art of the field the report is about.
    - The Problem: If there was no problem, there would be no reason for writing a manuscript, and definitely no reason for reading it. So, please tell readers why they should proceed reading. Experience shows that for this part a few lines are often sufficient.
    - The Proposed Solution: Now and only now! - authors may outline the contribution of the manuscript. Here authors have to make sure readers point out what are the novel aspects of authors work. Authors should place the paper in the proper context by citing relevant papers. At least, 5 references (recently journal articles) are used in this section.
    Literature Review section
    authors must provide the novelty in this section, the references that are being used should be at least in the last 5 years.
    Research Methodology
    The presentation of the experimental methods should be clear and complete in every detail facilitating reproducibility by other scientists
    Results and Discussion
    The presentation of results should be simple and straightforward in style. This section report the most important findings, including results of statistical analyses as appropriate and comparisons to other research results. Results given in figures should not be repeated in tables. This is where the author(s) should explain in words what he/she/they discovered in the research. It should be clearly laid out and in a logical sequence. This section should be supported with suitable references.
    Summarize sentences the primary outcomes of the study in a paragraph. Are the claims in this section supported by the results, do they seem reasonable? Have the authors indicated how the results relate to expectations and to earlier research? Does the article support or contradict previous theories? Does the conclusion explain how the research has moved the body of scientific knowledge forward?
    Authors may present complex proofs of theorems or non-obvious proofs of correctness of algorithms after introduction section (obvious theorems & straightforward proofs of existing theorems are NOT needed).
  4. References. Expect a minimum of 25 references primarily to journal papers and choose APA style. Please, don't used unpredictable website sources.

One author should be designated as the corresponding author and provide the following information:

  • E-mail address
  • Full postal address

Figures and Tables. Relation of Tables or Figures and Text: Because tables and figures supplement the text, all tables and figures should be referenced in the text. Authors also must explain what the reader should look for when using the table or figure. Focus only on the important point the reader should draw from them, and leave the details for the reader to examine on her own.

a. All figures appearing in the article must be numbered in the order that they appear in the text.
b. Each figure must have a caption fully explaining the content
c. Figure captions are presented as a paragraph starting with the figure number i.e. Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.
d. Figure captions appear below the figure
e. Each figure must be fully cited if taken from another article
f. All figures must be referred to in the body of the article

a. Material that is tabular in nature must appear in a numbered captioned table.
b. All tables appearing in the article must be numbered in the order that they appear in the text.
c. Each table must have a caption fully explaining the content with the table number i.e. Table 1, Table 2, etc.
d. Each column must have a clear and concise heading
e. Tables are to be presented with a single horizontal line under the table caption, the column headings and at the end of the table.
f. All tables must be referred to in the body of the article
g. Each table must be fully cited if taken from another article

Language. If an article is poorly written due to grammatical errors, while it may make it more difficult to understand the science, therefore authors must proof-read their article(s) before being submitted.

Please note that any papers which fail to meet our requirements will be returned to the author for amendment. Only papers which are submitted in the correct style will be considered by the Editors.
