Author Guidelines

Author Guidelines

Only manuscripts submitted via the online submission system will be considered for review unless an exception was made by the Editor to accept submission through a different method.

In order to submit a paper, an author is required to create an online account on IJRELPUB website. By submitting a manuscript via the online submission process, the author accepts all the terms and conditions and agrees to comply with the policies set by IJREL. If authors have any questions or concerns regarding any of the policies or rules stipulated by IJREL, they should contact the editors and pause their submission until they receive a definitive answer.

  • Manuscript format: Microsoft Word document sent in the .doc or .docx format. Locking and protecting a document is prohibited. A separate title page that includes the title, authors, contact information, affiliations, and date should be provided to ensure each paper's anonymity due to IJREL’s double-blind peer-review policy. The main document must not contain any information that would allow the reviewers to identify the author. Finally, make sure to upload a 100-150-word abstract along with the full paper.
  • Manuscript length: 25-35 pages, including references, tables, figures, and appendix.
  • Document format: Double-spaced, 1-inch margins, Times New Roman 12-point font. All pages must be numbered.
  • Text format: Usage of multiple columns or other unnecessary formatting is prohibited. Correct heading levels must be used with a maximum of 3 heading levels.
  • References format: All references should be properly cited and correspond with the text citations. Unless imperative to establish the foundation of a paper, references are required to be relevant and ideally limited to a 10-year span. When available, make sure to include the Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) in the reference list.
