Author Guidelines

 Please send your submissions to info@scientificia.com 


Papers should be submitted through the online submission system. JEBE follows strict standards for paper submission guidelines, which are stated below: 

Notice: Autobiographical note should be provided on a separate sheet and authors should not be identified anywhere else in the article.

1) Authors must supply an abstract. Maximum length is 250 words in total. In addition provide up to six keywords which encapsulate the principal topics of the paper and categorize your paper under one of these classifications (Type):

  • Research paper

  • Viewpoint

  • Technical paper

  • Conceptual paper

  • Case study

  • Literature review

  • General review

2) Headings must be short, with a clear indication of the distinction between the hierarchy of headings. The preferred format is for headings to be presented in bold format.

3) Notes or Endnotes should be used only if absolutely necessary and must be identified in the text by consecutive numbers.

4) Each Figure and Plate should be supplied separately (i.e. not within the article itself). All Figures (charts, diagrams and line drawings) and Plates (photographic images) should be of clear quality, in black and white and numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals.

  Figures created in MS WordMS PowerPointMS ExcelIllustrator and Freehand should be saved in their native formats. Electronic figures created in other applications should be copied from the origination software and pasted into a blank MS Word document or saved and imported into a MS Word document by choosing "Insert" from the menu bar, "Picture" from the drop-down menu and selecting "From File..." to select the graphic to be imported.

  For figures which cannot be supplied in MS Word, acceptable standard image formats are: .pdf.ai.wmf and .eps. If you are unable to supply graphics in these formats then please ensure they are .tif.jpeg (.jpg) , or .bmp at a resolution of at least 300dpi and at least 10cm wide.

  To prepare screenshots, simultaneously press the "Alt" and "Print screen" keys on the keyboard, open a blank Microsoft Word document and simultaneously press "Ctrl" and "V" to paste the image. (Capture all the contents/windows on the computer screen to paste into MS Word, by simultaneously pressing "Ctrl" and "Print screen".)

  Photographic images (Plates) should be saved as .tif or .jpeg (.jpg) files at a resolution of at least 300dpi and at least 10cm wide. Digital camera settings should be set at the highest possible resolution/quality.

  In the text of the paper the preferred position of all tables, figures and plates should be indicated by typing on a separate line the words "Insert Figure (No.)" or "Insert Plate (No.)".

5) Tables should be typed and included as part of the manuscript. They should not be submitted as graphic elements. Supply succinct and clear captions for all tables, figures and plates. Ensure that any superscripts or asterisks are shown next to the relevant items and have corresponding explanations displayed as footnotes to the table, figure or plate.

6) References to other publications must be in APA and carefully checked for completeness, accuracy and consistency.
