Authors` Guidelines

Manuscript Submission Guidelines


The International Journal "Teacher", is published in the English language, therefore the authors are asked to send their full paper in the English language. Manuscript should include abstract, keywords, conclusion and reference list. Submissions should not be more than 20 pages in length, and should be original and unpublished work which is not currently under review by another journal or publisher. Prepare manuscripts according to the APA style, better explained in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.

Review Process

Manuscripts are reviewed initially by the Editors and only those meeting the aims and scope of the journal will be sent for blind review. Each manuscript is reviewed by at least two referees (double blind peer review).

Format of Manuscripts

Manuscripts should be typed in 12-point font Times New Roman, single spaced throughout in Latin script. All text should be justified. The first row in a paragraph should not be indented; the crossover to next paragraph should be indicated with an increased spacing, the so called block form.

Main Title

Main Title is written in 12pt Times New Roman, bold, ALL CAPITAL letters. Title is centered.

Authors

Author names should be two spaces below main title, centered, written in bold letters. Two spaces below represented institution are stated, and beneath them authors write their e-mail addresses.

Abstract

All manuscripts must include an abstract containing a maximum of 300 words typed written in 12pt Times New Roman, justified. After the abstract, please supply up to five keywords or brief phrases.

Citations in text

References should be cited in the text first alphabetically, then by date (e.g. Angelovski&Stojanovski, 2010; Petrovski, 2010; Stojanovski&Angelovski, 2011) and listed in alphabetical order in the reference section at the end of the manuscript. If there are three, four or five authors, all authors should be cited when mentioned in the text for the first time e.g. Walker, Allen, Bradley, Ramirez, & Soo (2008). If the cited paper has more than five authors it should be cited like the first author + et al. e.g. (Wasserstein et al., 2005), but list the first six authors in the reference list. Use a comma between two references by the same author (e.g. Grozdanovski, 2000, 2002). When a specific page, section, equation, or other division of the work is cited, after the author's last name(s), and the year of publication, a specific page reference should be included (Grozdanovski, 2008: 5; Walker, 2007: 32).
Figures and Tables

Each table, figure, picture and chart should be understandable without the text, i.e. they need to have an ordinal number and title (precise, not longer than a row). Representing the same data both in a table and a chart is not acceptable. All photographs, graphs and diagrams should be referred to as a Figure and they should be numbered as Figure 1, Figure 2, etc. Complete and descriptive titles of the figures should be put below the figure. Each table should be numbered as Table 1, Table 2, etc. Complete and descriptive titles of the tables should be put before the table. Tables and figures must be referred to in the text and numbered in the order of their appearance.

Acknowledgements

Acknowledgements of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed before the References.

References

At the end of the text a bibliography of the used sources needs to be listed in alphabetical order. In the bibliography only the references which the author leans on or which the author analyzed in the paper should be listed. When the author is cited more than once, the order in which the work was published is respected. Citing unpublished works is not desirable.
