Author Guidelines

It is essential for us that authors write and prepare their manuscripts according to the instructions and specifications listed below. The length and effectiveness of the peer review process will largely depend upon the care used by authors in preparing their manuscripts. Therefore, contributors are strongly encouraged to read these instructions carefully before preparing a manuscript for submission, and to check the manuscript for conformance before submitting it for publication.

Manuscripts preferred for publication in IJEAL are those which:

1. Contain original work – which is not published elsewhere in any medium by the authors or anyone else and is not under consideration for publication in any other medium.

2. Are focused on the core aims and scope of the journal – IJEAL is an interdisciplinary peer reviewed journal that seeks both theoretically and practically oriented research papers from the area of organizational science, business information systems and human resources management.

3. Are clearly and correctly written – should contain all essential features of a complete scientific paper, should be written in a clear, easy to understand manner and be readable for a wide audience.

4. Are written in English – should be clearly and grammatically written, in an easily readable style.

Attention to detail of the language will avoid severe misunderstandings which might lead to rejection of the paper.

Correct language is the responsibility of the authors.

Introduction

It is essential for us that authors write and prepare their manuscripts according to the instructions and specifications listed below. The length and effectiveness of the peer review process will largely depend upon the care used by authors in preparing their manuscripts. Therefore, contributors are strongly encouraged to read these instructions carefully before preparing a manuscript for submission, and to check the manuscript for conformance before submitting it for publication.

Figures and Illustration Data

For the best quality final product, it is highly recommended that you submit all of your artwork – photographs, line drawings, etc. – in an electronic format. The published work will directly reflect the quality of the artwork provided.

Figure Lettering

• To add lettering, it is best to use Myriad Pro (sans serif fonts) and avoid effects such as shading, outline letters, etc.

• Keep lettering consistently sized throughout your final-sized artwork, usually about 10 pt.

• Variance of type size within an illustration should be minimal, e.g., do not use 9-pt type on an axis and 20-pt type for the axis label.

• Do not include titles or captions in your illustrations.

Figure Size

When preparing your figures, size figures to fit in the page width. The line spacing before the figure is 10 pt.

Figure Captions and Numbering

• Number the figures consecutively (e.g., Fig. 1). Figure parts should be denoted by lowercase letters (a, b, c, etc.).

• Figure captions begin with the term Fig. in bold type, followed by the figure number, also in bold type.

• Figure captions should be added below the figure, with the style specification as: font, Minion Pro, 10 pt, justified; before, 6 pt; after, 12 pt.

Fig. 2 By way of example, this figure shows the figure size and lettering.

Tables and Table Titles

Tables should be inserted in the text, as well.

• Number the tables consecutively (e.g., Table 1) and ensure that all the tables are cited in the text in the correct order.

• Table titles begin with the term Table, in bold type, followed by the table number, also in bold type.

• Table titles should be added above the figure, with the style specification as: font, Minion Pro, 10 pt, centred; before, 12 pt; after, 6 pt.

Acronyms

For the first occurrence (other than for commonly used acronyms) spell out each word followed by the acronym in parentheses, e.g., Smart Little People’s Modelling (SLP Modelling) and Project Based Learning (PBL).

Equations

• Equations of the type a2 + b2 = c2 can be written as normal text.

• For all other equations, please use MathType or the Microsoft equation editor, and insert the graphic into your text file as an object. Do not create the equations with the default equation editor.

• When entering your equation, select the appropriate style for each character from the menu. Do not change the style settings in Style/Define. “Math” in the Style Menu covers the entries “Function”, “Variable” and “Number”; the program will automatically style the character according to one of these styles.

• Please ensure the different styles are defined in the program itself:
