Manuscripts Preparation Guidelines

Manuscripts should be typed double-spaced on only one side of the paper.


Title Page
Include a separate title page with the title of the manuscript, author’s name, affiliation, address, phone number, fax number and email. All correspondence will be directed only to the first author.


An abstract of 150 to 200 words outlines the purpose, scope and conclusions of the manuscript as well as five selected keywords. If the manuscript is written in Bahasa Malaysia, an abstract in English should be provided.


Figures and Tables
All figures (charts, graphs, drawings etc) and tables should be titled and numbered. Figures and Tables should supplement the text and not duplicate it. Here are some examples:

Figure 2.5 Evolution of Training’s Role
Source: Noe, RA 2005, Employee Training and Development, p.41.
Table 6.20 Fit Indices for Hypothesised Structural Model


Use a separate page for appendices (if required). Provide each appendix with a title.


Reference Citations
Use the American Psychological Association (APA) citation and format style.
