Manuscript Elements

Using an empirical study as an example, the manuscripts should include the following elements:
  • Title
  • Author's name and institutional affiliation
  • Abstract
  • Body
  • Tables & Figures (insert into the body)
  • Acknowledgement (not required)
  • References
  • Appendix (not required)


The title should summarize the main idea of the whole manuscript. It should be concise and unique. The first letter of each word should be written with a capital letter.
All the authors' names should be shown in the manuscripts. The preferred form of an author's name is first name, middle name and last name without any titles (e.g., Dr., Professor) or degrees (e.g., PhD, EdD).
The institutional affiliation identifies the location where the author(s) was or were when the research was conducted, which is usually a university or an organization. The component parts should include corresponding address, zip code, city, country, telephone number and email address.
Abstract is a brief, comprehensive summary of the contents of the article, so it should be accurate, coherent, and concise. It should also not exceed 200 words. After the abstract, 3 to 8 keywords must be listed.
In an original empirical study, “body” usually consists of introduction, method, result, discussion and conclusion. If an author wants to use tables/figures to illustrate his research result, the tables/figures should be inserted into the body.
Tables should be placed with the first reference to them in the body of manuscript. With regard to the format of table, you should put table's caption before the table body and table note. Moreover, avoid submitting an image version, since image versions are hard to re-edit.
Figures should be placed with the first reference to them in the body of manuscript. You should put the figure's caption and description below the figure body.
As an author, you are free to decide whether you need this acknowledgement part or not.
References acknowledge the work of previous scholars and provide a reliable way to locate it. The references cited in the manuscript should be sufficient to support the need for your research and to ensure that readers can place it in the context of previous research and theorizing.
Usually an appendix is not necessary. It should be included only if it helps readers to understand, evaluate or replicate the study or theoretical argument being made. The appendix should be added at the end of the manuscript.
