As many international, multi-disciplinary and peer-refereed journals, IJAS guide for authors provides instructions to be followed to increase the chance of article acceptation. 

To warrant publication, papers must present new empirical findings of widespread interest to readers, or offer new analytical results or methods that may potentially influence the course of future research.
It is essential for us that authors should prepare their manuscripts according to the instructions and specifications listed below. The length and effectiveness of the peer review process will largely depend upon the care used by authors in preparing their manuscripts. Therefore, contributors are strongly encouraged to read these instructions carefully before preparing a manuscript for submission, and to check the manuscript for conformance before submitting it for publication. “IJAS Manuscript Template” is available on the website; authors are encouraged to compare with it the manuscript before submission.
Please read the following instructions carefully and convert your research in manuscript as:

Types of paper

1. Original research papers (regular papers)
2. Review articles
3. Short Communications
Original research papers should report the results of original research. The material should not have been previously published elsewhere. Review articles should cover subjects falling within the scope of the journal which are of active current interest. A Short Communication is a concise but complete description of a limited investigation, which will not be included in a later paper. Short Communications should be as completely documented, both by reference to the literature and description of the experimental procedures employed, as a regular paper. They should not occupy more than 4 printed pages.


Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place footnotes to tables below the table body and indicate them with superscript lowercase letters. Avoid vertical rules. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article (in figures e.g.).

Article structure 

Title of manuscript  
The title should be relatively short, without abbreviations and informative. A list of all authors of the paper should be prepared. It will contain full first name, middle name(s) and last name. Correspondent author’s name should be mentioned in the left with (*). Authors’ affiliations and e-mail addresses should be indicated in this section.

A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. References should be avoided. Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.

Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords, and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.

Subdivision - numbered sections 
Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2,..), 1.2, etc. (the abstract and key words are not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text'. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.

State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results, present the goals of paper, novelty of research work and finally the organization of paper.

Materials and Methods 
Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.
A theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction section and lay the foundation for further work. In contrast, a calculation section represents a practical development from a theoretical basis.

Results and Discussion 
Results should be clear and concise. Discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. With the exception of “Review manuscripts”, avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone.

If applicable, collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.) or the study fund providers.

Reference list 
Citation in text
Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full. Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. If these references are included in the reference list they should follow the standard reference style of the journal and should include a substitution of the publication date with either 'Unpublished results' or 'Personal communication'. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication.
Web references
As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed. Any further information, if known (DOI, author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list.
List: references should be arranged first alphabetically.

Plagiarism checker

Plagiarism could be defined as the act of taking someone else’s words without giving him or her credit. It also extends to others’ ideas. The first step to avoid plagiarizing is to cite your sources well and widely. When paraphrasing the work of someone else, make sure to avoid repeating any of the author’s words or phrases that are not commonly used elsewhere. When writing about a specific idea that is not your own, like Einstein’s Theory of Relativity (or anyone else’s research or theory), it is required that you credit the author and the source you found the information from.
Before you send your paper to International Journal of Academic Studies, make sure to use Plagiarism Checker provided by Small Seo Tools ( Send to the journal a screen-shot of your paper’ score (% unique). We accept only papers with a score of 90% unique or more.


After review process, it is not allowed to add or remove any author from the list already provided. Changing the name of corresponding author also is not permitted. These acts (adding, removing or changing of positions) can be considered as kind of plagiarism.
