Guide for Authors



Submission of an article implies that it has not been published previously, or it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that if accepted it will not be published elsewhere in the same form (in English or in any other language).

All articles should be written in English. All articles would be independently refereed. For more information about how the process is conducted for OAJRE, please take a look at the peer review policy statement.

Examples of potential conflicts of interest include employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications/registrations, and grants or other funding.

Authors should complete the declaration of interest statement and upload to the submission system at the Attach/Upload Files step.

If there are no interests to declare: None.

1-6- Submission Declaration and Verification

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract, a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, including electronically without the written consent of the copyright-holder. To verify originality, your article may be checked by the Plagiarism Detection Software “iThenticate”.


1-7- Inclusive Language

Inclusive language acknowledges diversity, conveys respect to all people, is sensitive to differences, and promotes equal opportunities. Articles should make no assumptions about the beliefs or commitments of any reader, should contain nothing which might imply that one individual is superior to another on the grounds of race, gender, culture or any other characteristic, and should use inclusive language throughout.


1-8- Contributions of Authors

For transparency, we encourage authors to submit an author statement file outlining their individual contributions to the article using the relevant roles.


1-9- Possible Changes to Authorship

Authors are expected to consider carefully the list and order of authors before submitting their manuscript and provide the definitive list of authors at the time of the original submission. Any addition, deletion or rearrangement of author names in the authorship list should be made only before the manuscript has been accepted and only if approved by the journal Editor. To request such a change, the Editor must receive the letter from the corresponding author: (a) the reason for the change in author list and (b) written confirmation (e-mail, letter) from all authors that they agree with the addition, removal or rearrangement. In the case of addition or removal of authors, this includes confirmation from the author being added or removed.

Only in exceptional circumstances will the Editor consider the addition, deletion or rearrangement of authors after the manuscript has been accepted. While the Editor considers the request, publication of the manuscript will be suspended. If the manuscript has already been published in an online issue, any requests approved by the Editor will result in a corrigendum.


 1-10- Funding Source

You are requested to identify who provided financial support for the conduct of the research and/or preparation of the article and to briefly describe the role of the sponsor(s), if any, in study. If the funding source(s) had no such involvement then this should be stated.


1-11- Language

Please write your text in good English (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of these).


1-12- Online Proof Correction

To ensure a fast publication process of the article, we kindly ask authors to provide us with their proof corrections within two days. We will do everything possible to get your article published quickly and accurately.



Our online submission system guides you stepwise through the process of entering your article details and uploading your files. Editable files (Word) are required to typeset your article for final publication. All correspondence, including notification of the Editor's decision and requests for revision, is sent by e-mail.


Submit Your Article

Authors are invited to submit their article electronically via journal website after creating account.



Please submit the names and institutional e-mail addresses of several potential referees. Please do not suggest referees from your country. Note that the editor retains the sole right to decide whether or not the suggested reviewers are used.


Article Structure


A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.

The Abstract should be of about 150-250 words.



State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.



The main section of article; 3500 – 8000 words.



The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion section.



If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc.



Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.).
