Format of Articles
FSSH Scholarly Journal publishes original research in one format, Articles, which may range in length from short communications through to more in-depth studies. In most cases we do not impose strict limits on word and page numbers, but we encourage authors to write concisely and suggest authors adhere to the guidelines below.
Articles should be no more than 20 typeset pages in length. As a guide, the main text (not including Abstract, Methods, References and figure legends) should be no more than 7,500 words. The maximum title length is 30 words. The Abstract —which must be no more than 200 words long and contain no references— should serve both as a general introduction to the topic and as a brief, non-technical summary of the main results and their implications.
For the main body of the text, there are no explicit requirements for section organization. According to the authors' preference, the text may be organized as best suits the research. As a guideline and in the majority of cases, however, we recommend that you structure your manuscript as follows:
- Theoretical Framework
- Results (with subheadings)
- Discussion (without subheadings)
A specific order for the main body of the text is not compulsory and in some cases, it may be appropriate to combine sections. Figure legends are limited to 350 words. References should be limited to 60. Please send all manuscript to our editor: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
