Submission Guidelines

Authors should submit their manuscripts online via "Submit a Manuscript" link on the homepage of EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education . First-time users must create an account first.

General Rules

Manuscripts should be in English. Either British or American English may be used, but the dialect used should be followed consistently throughout the manuscript.

Manuscripts submitted to the journal must meet the aims and scope of the journal and should not be published before or not under consideration elsewhere (in the case of previous oral or poster presentation of the paper at scientific meetings, author should inform the journal). Authors must follow the ethical guidelines presented in Publication Ethics. Authors take full responsibility (ethic, scientific, legal, etc.) for the opinions, findings and discussions presented in the manuscripts as well as resolution of all disputes arising from using copyrighted materials in their manuscripts without proper permission.

All authors must be added to the submission system during manuscript submission. Any request to change authorship (such as adding/deleting authors or modifying order of authors) during revisions must be well justified, and they are subject to editorial approval. No change in authorship is allowed after the manuscript is accepted for publication.

Papers should be prepared with Microsoft Word in .docx, .doc or in .rtf file formats. A manuscript should be no more than 10000 words; this limit includes figures, references, and tables, while shorter ones are preferred. However, this does not impose an absolute page limit on manuscripts; longer manuscripts of merit can be published in the journal.

The journal adopts a double-blind peer reviewing process. In accordance with the double-blind peer-review rules, authors must ensure that (apart from the title page) main manuscript file should contain no clues about the identity of authors and institution where the study was performed. This means that the manuscript should not include authors' names, institutional affiliations or contact information. Also, authors' own works need to be blinded in the references. 

Layout

Settings: Use A4 format 1” margins all around, 1.5 line spacing, and 12-point Times New Roman. Justify your text both on the left and right. The text should be delivered as 'flat' as possible. Whatever style you use, please use it consistently. Words you like to have in italic or bold should be written accordingly in the text. First-, second-, and third-order headings should be clearly distinguishable. 

Title page: The title page should not contain abbreviations. The title page should contain the full names and affiliations of all authors, conflict of interest statement and complete contact information (including address, phone number, fax number, email) of the corresponding author.  If the study was previously presented in any scientific meeting, name and date (as day-month-year) of the organization should be written. Supplementary material should be collected in an Appendix.

Blinded text: Authors should prepare the blinded text of their manuscripts in a way that does not give away their identity. All written content should be prepared in conformity with grammar and punctuation rules. Avoid abbreviations whenever possible; in case of necessary, it should be given in parentheses when they are first used. Figures, tables and illustrations should be consecutively numbered in the order in which they have been cited in the text. All measurement units in the text should be used in accordance with international standards for units of measurement. Declarations such as author contributions, conflict of interest, acknowledgements of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section before the References. The text must include the following sections:

  • Title and Running head (shortened title): Title of the article should be concise and preferably should not exceed 100 characters.
  • Abstract and keywords: The abstract should be 150 words maximum and should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references. Four to six key words or short phrases should be provided in alphabetical order.
  • Contribution to the literature: Please summarize the ways your paper contributes to the existing literature in three bullet points using a maximum of 100 words. You can also emphasize the originality and the significance of your work in terms of research questions, employed methods, and/or findings and results. However, do not give any implications in this section. The purpose of this section is to help the readers to be able to compare and contrast your work to previous work, if any exists, and to understand how your work advances the scholarship in the field.
  • References: References must follow the American Psychological Association (APA) style (seventh edition). DOI number, if exists, must be included. Details about references and citations are provided below.

  • Introduction: The matter and purpose of the study is clearly defined.
  • Materials and Methods: This should include the date and design of the study, the setting, type of participants or materials involved, a clear description of all interventions and comparisons, and the statistical analysis.
  • Results: Collected data and results of statistical analysis should be outlined in this section.
  • Discussion: The discussion section should include interpretation of study findings and results should be considered in the context of results in other studies reported in the literature.

  • Use authors' last names, with the year of publication, e.g., “(Bahar & Usak, 2008; Prokop et al., 2012; Usak, 2005)”. For citations with three or more authors, use [first author] “et al.”.
  • Where there are two or more works by the same author in the same year, they should be distinguished by 2017a, 2017b, etc. 
  • Please use 'n.d.' to indicate that no date for the document or web page is available, both in the in-text citation and in the bibliography.

High quality (300 dpi or higher) original digital files in one of the common file formats such as jpeg, tiff, or png must be submitted as separate files. Charts and graphs must include a separate MS Excel file along with the text file so that changes can be made in their appearance.

Final Checking

It is the responsibility of the author to ensure before submission that the manuscript is in its most refined condition and that the following have been considered:

  • Will the reader be able to understand and evaluate all stages of your research study or methodological/theoretical contribution or the position you are stating in your manuscript?
  • Is the expression of ideas and wording understandable, plain, self-contained, precise, and full?
  • In its current state, is your manuscript written in the shortest possible way? Do you have any redundancies, repetitions, and/or unsupported generalizations? Is everything in the manuscript relevant and necessary for the reader to understand your point?
  • Do you make explicit your theoretical/conceptual framework?
  • Do you have data or references for all of the statements you included in your manuscript?
  • Have you clearly explained and highlighted the place and importance of the research problem in the literature? Are your purposes clear and understandable? Do sufficient links exist between the research problem and the method employed in the study? Do you explain the reason for the choice of methods and their suitability to the problem?
  • Do you include validity and reliability measures of the instruments utilized? Do you explain how you took precautions towards threats to validity and reliability?
  • Do you include references for the instruments you employed? If you are presenting a new research instrument, questionnaire, achievement test, interview protocol, etc., do you include it entirely in the manuscript for the reviewers and the readers to be able to evaluate it?
  • Do you present the entire results emerging from the study? Have all the results presented emerged from the current study? Do you discuss the results in terms of the literature and contributions to the literature?
  • Are all authors added to the submission system during manuscript submission? Please note that any request to change authorship (such as adding/deleting authors or modifying order of authors) during revisions must be well justified, and they are subject to editorial approval. No change in authorship is allowed after the manuscript is accepted for publication.
