Author Guidelines

Manuscripts Preparation:

Manuscripts must not contain any author information. Authors need to use JLLS Manuscript Template to format their manuscript. Authors need to fill up Author Information/Abstract Form and send it as a supplementary file.

Authors must use the the bibliographic and formatting standards set out by  Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition, 2010.

Manuscripts NOT in line with the JLLS's guidelines will be ignored without any notice. Authors need to submit their manuscripts online. Should they experience difficulty with online submission, they can contact the Managing Editor.

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission file is in Microsoft Word format.
  2. Where available, URLs and DOIs for the references have been provided.
  3. The text is single-spaced; uses a 11-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  4. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  5. If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
