Author Guidelines

Author Guideline

Template for IJPG can be download here.


Here introduce the paper. The paragraphs continue from here and are only separated by headings, subheadings, images, and formulae. The section headings are arranged by capital, bold, and 11 pt. The minimum page of the article should be 5 pages.  Here follow further instructions for authors. The book size will be in A4 (210 x 297 mm). Left margin 30mm, Right Margin 20mm, Top Margin 20mm, and Bottom Margin: 20mm. Please make sure that you do not exceed the indicated type area.


Files must be in MS Word only and should be formatted for direct printing, using the CRC MS Word provided. Figures and tables should be embedded and not supplied separately. Please make sure that you use as much as possible normal fonts in your documents. Special fonts, such as fonts used in the Far East (Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc.) may cause problems during processing. To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the ‘spellchecker’ function of MS Word. Follow this order when typing manuscripts: Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords, Main text (Introduction, Method or Material and Method, Results and Discussion, Conclusion; including figures and tables), Acknowledgements, References, Appendix. Collate acknowledgments in a separate section at the end of the article and do not include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise.

Construction of references

References must be listed at the end of the paper. Do not begin them on a new page unless this is absolutely necessary. Authors should ensure that every reference in the text appears in the list of references and vice versa. Indicate references by last name and years in the text.

Some examples of how your references should be listed are given at the end of this template in the ‘References’ section, which will allow you to assemble your reference list according to the correct format and font size.

Section headings

Section headings should be left-justified, bold, with the all letter capitalized, starting with the Introduction. Sub-section headings should be in the first letter capitalized and bold, without number, and left-justified, with second and subsequent lines indented. All headings should have a minimum of three text lines after them before a page or column break. Ensure the text area is not blank except for the last page.

Cite the main scientific publications on which your work is based. Cite only items that you have read. Do not inflate the manuscript with too many references. Avoid excessive self‐citations. Avoid excessive citations of publications from the same region. Check each reference against the original source (author name, volume, issue, year, DOI Number). Please use Reference Manager Applications like EndNote, Mendeley, Zotero, etc. Use other published articles in the same journal as models. If you are citing using Mendeley please use American Psychological Association for cite model style.


All tables should be numbered with Arabic numerals. Every table should have a caption. Horizontal lines should be placed above and below table headings and at the bottom of the table. Vertical lines should be avoided. The title should use Time New Roman 10, with 8 pt before and 6 pt after the paragraph, left-justified at the top of the table. Tables must be embedded in the text and not supplied separately. Below is an example which the authors may find useful.


All figures should be numbered with Arabic numerals (1,2,3,….). Every figure should have a caption. All photographs, schemas, graphs, and diagrams are to be referred to as figures. Line drawings should be good quality scans or true electronic output. Low-quality scans are not acceptable. Figures must be embedded in the text and not supplied separately. In MS word input the figures must be properly coded. The preferred format of figures is PNG, JPEG, GIF, etc. Lettering and symbols should be clearly defined either in the caption or in a legend provided as part of the figure. Figures should be placed at the top or bottom of a page wherever possible, as close as possible to the first reference to them in the paper. Please ensure that all the figures are of 300 DPI resolutions as this will facilitate good output.

The figure number and caption should be typed below the illustration in 9 pt and left-justified [Note: one-line captions of length less than the column width (or full typesetting width or oblong) centered].


Equations and formulae should be typed in Mathtype and numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals in parentheses on the right-hand side of the page (if referred to explicitly in the text). They should also be separated from the surrounding text by one space.
