  1. JEECAR Manuscript Formatting Style Guidelines

    The editorial staff of JEECAR journal welcomes the submissions of scholarly articles and book reviews. Paper submitted to the journal must be original, previously unpublished, and currently not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

    The JEECAR Journal is committed to the editorial principles of all aspects assigned by the Committee on Public Ethics.

    This paper gives the author guidelines to follow when formatting the article for submission.

  2. Submission Preparation Checklist:

    Authors must comply with the following guidelines to ensure full consideration of their submitted work:

    • The submitted must not have been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided to Comments to the Editor).
    • The submission file is in Microsoft Word document file format.
    • When available, URLs for references have been provided.
    • The text is single-spaced, uses a 12-point Times New Roman font, employs italics, rather than underling (except with URL addresses).

    • Articles not in compliance will be returned to the author.

    A high-quality article is written in an academic style which employs the use of critical thinking, relevant research, and credible conclusions.

    Critical thinking uses evaluating, analyzing, and synthesizing when discussing the concepts presented in the paper. Just stating the facts is not considered to be high-quality academic writing. An author should interpret or evaluate the results. Relevant interpretations should accompany figures and charts.

    Research should be relevant to the topic of the paper. Extraneous research should be excluded from the article. Again, the research should be evaluated and analyzed to present the reader with the quality of the research.

    A good conclusion and recommendations is a summary of all information presented in the paper. No new information should be introduced in the conclusion.

  3. Citations and quotations of references:

    Footnotes: The use of footnotes and endnotes are prohibited. Incorporate additional material within the main text when possible.

    Use an author-date citation in the text. Each reference cited in the text must be listed in the reference page and each entry in the reference page must be cited in the text. Ex.: (Dessler, 2009) stated that…..Note: page numbers are not in these types of citations.

    When citing multiple authors, all authors are listed in the first citation. Ex.: Smith, Jones, Joseph, and (Liliy, 2007) found that….After the first citation, the following can be cited in this manner: (Smith et al., 2007) noted that….…..Note: page numbers are not in these types of citations.

    When quoting an author in the text, page numbers are used.  Ex.: (Miele, 2013) stated that “the ‘placebo effect’ which had been… this manner” (p.276).

  4. Reference Page

    The reference page lists all the cited authors in the article alphabetically by the author’s surname. They are not numbered. Bibliographies are not used in the article. For the purposes of the JEECAR Journal, references will be single spaced with a hanging indent.
