Title: the title should summarize the main idea(s) of your paper, concise and maximum 25 words

Author detail: include name of authors and their affiliations. Email is required for corresponding author only. JITE requires that authorship should be based on the following criteria:

  2. Drafting the paper or revising it for important intellectual content; AND
  3. Final approval of the version to be submitted and published; AND
  4. Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the paper (and research) in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

Contributors who do not meet the abovementioned criteria for authorship should be listed in acknowledgement only, not as authors. Therefore, contributors doing acquisition of funding; general supervision of a research group or general administrative support; and writing assistance, technical editing, language editing, and proofreading do not qualify for authorship. 

Abstract: concisely describe the content and scope of your paper and identify the objective(s), its methodology and its findings, conclusions, or intended results.

Introduction: state the objectives of your work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. Explicitly state the gap in the literature, which signifies the significance of your research.

When paraphrasing a source that is not your own, be sure to represent the author’s information or opinions accurately and in your own words. Even when paraphrasing an author’s work, you still must provide a citation to that work.

Method: provide sufficient detail to allow your work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.

Results and Discussion: present the results of your work. Use graphs and tables if appropriate, but also summarize your main findings in the text. Discuss and interpret the significance of your findings in light of what was already known about the research problem being investigated and to explain any new understanding or insights that emerged as a result of your study of the problem. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate.

Conclusion: provide the final statements on the value of your analysis, research, or paper. Limitations of your study should be addressed. Recommendations for future research related to your topic should also be mentioned.

Acknowledgments (optional): give credit to funding bodies and departments that have been of help during the project, for instance by supporting it financially.
