Papers can be written in English or French.
2. Length of Paper
The length of the paper should not exceed 25 pages. Paper containing more than 25 pages words will be returned to the author(s) to abridge.
3. Title Page
Title page is a separated page before the text. It should include the following information:
Title should be concise and informative. Try to avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.
Author’s Names and Affiliations:
Please indicate the given name and family name clearly. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name, and, if available, the e-mail address, and telephone number of each author.
A concise and factual abstract is required (maximum length of 250 words). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separate from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. References should therefore be avoided, but if essential, they must be cited in full, without reference to the reference list.
Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 8 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of').
6. Subdivision of the Article
Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1, 2. (then 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2), 1.2, etc. The abstract is not included in section numbering.
7. Table and Figures
Present tables and figures at the end of the article or in line with text. Please note that the article will be published in black and white.
Author(s) should follow the latest edition of APA style in referencing. Please visit www.apastyle.org to learn more about APA style.
Citations in the Text:
Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Avoid citation in the abstract. Unpublished results and personal communications should not be in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication.
References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters "a", "b", "c", etc., placed after the year of publication.
