Firstly, the title of your manuscript should be informative, clear and concise. It should not be open to multiple interpretations and should clearly indicate the issues that will be discussed. The first letter of the title should be capitalized and the title should be centered. The main ideas should be written before explanations and the title should not contain any uncommon abbreviations. The article title should be no longer than sixteen words and should be written in 13pt-sized font and bolded.

Introduction: In this section, the aim is to provide readers with an introductory background to the study and smoothly lead into a description of the methods employed in the current investigation. The introduction should briefly and consecutively offer a general background of the problem being investigated, providing readers with adequate information to understand the specific objectives within a larger theoretical framework or broader relevant discussion. It is important to note that while placing the current work in a broader context, authors should clearly state the position of the research among previous relevant research in the literature review (state of the art) as the basis of the brand new research questions. It is also important to represent references in the literature review to show the novelty, originality, and state-of-the-art of the current research. Additionally, it is expected that all background information gathered from other sources is appropriately cited to acknowledge the contribution of others to the study. In the final part of the introduction, the purpose of the article should be stated, as well as its basic argument or hypothesis.

Methods: The Methods section of a research paper should provide sufficient details that allow the readers to understand what was practically done. It is important to avoid lengthy conceptual explanations about the meaning of certain methods, approaches, or research types. Instead, focus on explaining how the data was obtained, coded, and analyzed. This section is also where authors can provide reasons for choosing a specific theoretical framework for their research, if necessary.

Result and Discussion: The Result and Discussion sections of a research paper should be written together and aligned with the research questions or objectives. They should be presented in a continuous manner, starting with the main result and extending to supporting results. The discussion section should cover basic principles such as analytic, implicative, interpretative, constructive and comparative aspects. Any figures, tables, or visualizations should be included in this section and provided in high resolution for editors. While both the result and discussion are written together, it is important to distinguish between the data presented and how it relates to the wider relevant discussion or theoretical framework.

Conclusion: This section of the article should not repeat any parts from the Abstract or Result and Discussion sections. Instead, it should state what the authors believe the data implies and means, and how it relates back to the problem/question of the article in the wider discussion of the theme. This section should also include any limitations of the current study, as well as suggestions for further relevant research. It should not offer any reasons for those particular conclusions, as this should have been presented in the Discussion section. By reading only the Introduction and Conclusions sections, a reader should have a good understanding of what the researcher has investigated, discovered, and contributed, even though the specific details would not be known.

Acknowledgment: Authors may express gratitude for physical and moral support during the writing process, including data compilation and publication. This includes individuals and institutions such as respondents and funders.

Bibliography: The manuscript's references must be recent, preferably from the last 5 to 8 years, and a minimum of 25 references should be used. At least 50% of these references should be from primary sources, such as reputable academic journals, and must be easily accessible to everyone. It is the authors' responsibility to ensure that all information in each reference is accurate and complete. All references should be cited within the text, or they will be removed automatically.
