Journal Paper Submission Guidelines

Basics of the Journal’s Peer Review Process:

Submissions to the Cyrus Chronicle Journal should be no more than 7000 words and are subject to certain standard tests. By submitting a paper, authors agree:

  1. To allow the Journal to test for originality;
  2. That the paper has not been submitted for publication elsewhere;
  3. That on acceptance, its copyright will be transferred to the Journal.

Title/Abstract page:

The manuscript should start with a page that includes the title and an abstract of up to 500 words. This should not contain any information that identifies the author(s).

Keywords:  Include five keywords

Body of the paper:

Introduction: state clearly the objective of the paper and its research approach and method.

Literature Review: limit this to the articles, books, and other sources that have a direct relationship to the paper’s subject.

Theoretical Model: explain the potential usefulness of any theoretical model used.

Empirical Section: provide appropriate citations to the statistical methods and procedure used.

Conclusion: summarize key findings, their importance to the field, and any potential for further research.

Style of presentation:

The text should be double-spaced and fully justified, with 1 inch margins (2½ cm) on all sides. References, endnotes, and appendices should be single spaced. Font type should be 12-point Times New Roman. Pagination should start with the Abstract Page. Use endnotes instead of footnotes; they should be concise. Citations to the literature should be included in the text, not in the endnotes, for example:  “Several studies (AAA and & BBB, 1976; CCC, 2003a, 2003b) concur with this finding”.

For articles with three or more co-authors, cite the first author’s last name followed by “et al.”  For a direct quotation give author’s last name, date and page number, for example, “XYZ, 2000, 50”.
