Submission Preparation Checklist

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.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-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.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

AMCA Journal of Religion and Society (AJRS) publishes both types of articles, articles of original
research and reviews on the latest progress made in a given area of research. We are seeking submissions for
forthcoming issues. The manuscripts submitted to AJRS should neither be published previously nor be under
consideration for publication in another journal.
AJRS follows a double-blind peer-review process, whereby authors do not know reviewers and vice versa.
AJRS is willing to select and publish the article with the highest quality research globally. To achieve this
the goal, the entire peer-review process will be done objectively and fairly.

Technical guidelines for submission
The manuscript structure includes abstract and keyword, introduction, methods, results, discussion, conclusions,
and references. The paper should be written in professional English. All manuscripts should be prepared in
Microsoft Word format employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all
illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points or the end of the text.
The manuscript is written using Times New Roman font, 12 points, double spaced; do not use the automated
features of your application (end-notes, headers, footers, especially for references); type a double space at the
end of each paragraph; avoid using bold characters to emphasize words or sentences within the text; and
number consecutively all pages, including references.
The Manuscript should be more than 3000 words and no longer than 8,000 words for full-length articles
(including appendices and references). Each manuscript must have an abstract (not exceeding 200 words) and
5 keywords. Manuscripts that do not adhere to this will not be considered for review. The citation and
reference use APA style. The authors are encouraged to include hypermedia links within their articles and
ensure these are ready to use.

Tables and Figure
Size a table or a figure to t in a single column or across two columns. Avoid large tables (i.e. those that t
more than a single page), unless necessary. Every table and figure should be cited in the text in numerical
order (i.e. Table 2 cannot be cited before Table 1). Place table footnotes below the table, indicating them
with superscript lowercase letters or asterisks (for significance values and other statistical data).
Every table should have a caption that is concise but clear enough to explain its main components
independently from the text. If the table contains previously published material, cite the source at the end of
the caption.
Images should be of sufficiently high resolution to be easily viewed when printed (minimum of 300 dpi). Every
figure should be cited in the text in numerical order (i.e. Figure 2 cannot be cited before Figure 1). Figures
should be referred to as "Figure" not "Fig." Denote figure parts with lowercase letters (e.g. Figure 1a, Figure
1b).

References and citation
For efficiency and conciseness, an author needs to provide 10-25 references. Use a reference manager such as
Mendeley to build your reference list. A reference must be cited for it to appear in the reference list. If you
have cited and formatted your reference correctly, it will automatically appear in the reference list.
