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.

Submissions are required to adhere to standards for good academic writing and TAGP’s referencing standards, which are based on the APA referencing system.

Good Academic Writing

  • Article must be unique and original research work by the author.
  • Normally, this will mean that the research should not have been published anywhere else.
  • Articles must cite material accurately and engage it critically.
  • Articles must be written in the English language and pay due regard to proper grammar, punctuation, and typical writing practices.
  • The writing should reflect appropriate language for a formal academic article.
  • The argumentation should be precise, logical, and professional.
  • All factual statements must be supported with cited sources or research evidence.
  • Cited passages must reference the original author(s) correctly.
  • All quotations must be clearly indicated by the use of “quotation marks”.
  • Use of bulleted lists and direct quotes should be limited.
  • Citations, quotations, diagrams, tables, and maps should be accurate.

Scholarly References and Citations

  • All sources must be cited in the reference list and in the main text.
  • Sources accessed online must include a DOI or URL.
  • References with non-English titles must include a translation. The translation must be included in brackets following original language title.
  • At least five of the article’s sources must be one of these publication types:
    • An edited book.
    • A peer reviewed publication (book, journal, or other).
    • An academic journal.
    • A university press publication (book, journal, or other academic publication).

Other points

  • Article submissions should include an updated abstract and set of keywords.
  • Follow the citation guidelines of the American Psychological Association (7th edition).
  • Insert all images as jpg files. Please keep image resolution below 300 DPI.
  • If you use special symbols, use only standard fonts (e.g., WingDings, Arial Unicode MS).
  • Do not use advanced MS Word features such as automatic reference tools, drawing objects, automatic table of contents and table of indexes, bookmarks, background or font colours, highlighting, strike-through, embossing, or any other complex MS Word feature.
  • The MS Word footnotes/endnotes tools may, however, be used.
