Title: Include a title for your submission of no more than 15 words.

Running title: A brief running title should be on the top of each right-hand print page and along top of the online browser window, not to exceed 15 words. If running title is declarative or interrogative sentences, it is not acceptable.

Abstract: An abstract is a brief, comprehensive summary of the contents of the article; it allows readers to survey the contents of an article quickly. Abstract should be concise less than 250 words and describe, in a paragraph, concisely purpose, methods, important results and describe conclusion of the study, but not repeat information already presented in the title. Short communication or clinical case reports must also be submitted with an abstract.

Key words: This is a list important terms relevant to the content of paper. Up to 4-5 key words should be listed at the bottom of abstract to be used as index terms.

Articles versus briefings: Articles address critical themes or case analyses and must be contextualized within the scholarly and policy literature and existing debates on peace education and development. Articles are 7,000 words at most, including endnotes and bibliographical references. Briefings are practice or policy reviews on current events and topical issues that do not exceed 2,500 words unless editors suggest otherwise. They do not need to refer to the literature.

1) Format: All submissions to the Journal of Peace education & Development must be typed 1.5-spaced using Times New Roman, 12 pt, with a one inch margin. The article must be typed on word-processing software, preferably MS Word 7

Editorial style: (punctuation, capitalisation, etc.)

- Referencing: Please use the APA System of Referencing but use single quotation marks instead of double. Use parenthetical referencing in text (author date:, e.g. (Moyo 2000).

For bibliographical referencing, use the order: author, date, title, place, publisher.


Author(s), year. Title. Journal title (full name in italic) volume number (bold) :page-page.

Abbas,T.P. and Asha, S., 2012, Reengineering the administrative and support systems of universities for gearing towards a paperless system. Technolearn: An International Journal of Educational Technology, 2(2): 121-134

The bibliographic references should be listed alphabetically and be consistent in style.

- Endnotes: Should be kept to a minimum - 10 at the most - and placed at the end of the article.

Diagrams, figures, maps and other graphic material: should be placed at appropriate body of the manuscript.

Table should be typewritten separately from the text, double spaced, and each table should include a title. Vertical rulings in tables are unacceptable. Figures should ordinarily be original drawings. However, glossy photographs of line-drawing are usually satisfactory. In each original line-drawing, letters or numbers should be left blank because they will be typed in during printing. Letters or numbers should be included in the figures contained in a submitted manuscript along with caption for figures. Authors should place explanatory matter in footnotes, not in the heading. Explain in footnotes all nonstandard abbreviations that are used in each table. For footnotes use the following symbols, in sequence: *,?,?,??,||,?,**,??, ?? .

Nomenclatures, Unit, Abbreviations, and Symbols Nomenclatures for chemicals and biochemical's, microorganism, and genes should follow the guidelines in the instructions to authors of journals published by American Society for Microbiology. SI units (System International Unites) should be used whenever possible. Abbreviations should be used for those recommended by IUPA-IUB Commission on Biochemical Nomenclature and Related Documents.

Proof-correction should be in red ink; in the margins. All queries marked in the article should be answered. Proofs are supplied for a check-up of the correctness of type-setting and facts. Excessive alteration may be charged to the authors. The proofs should be returned within 7 Working days.

Pull-Quotes: Please bold up to 10 'stand alone' phrases, preferably full sentences which will be highlighted in the final publication as 'pullouts'. They should reflect your original contributions or simply make a telling point. Try to distribute them evenly throughout the text. Ideally they should link peace education and development and highlight key points in the logic and flow of the article. Pull Quotes are NOT needed for briefing submissions.
