Manuscript Quality Evaluation

Only high quality articles are published in Jeltim. Evaluate your manuscript before submitting to this journal. In general, you may refer to these items when evaluating the quality of your manuscript.

  1. Title Precision: A paramount criterion for submission is the precision of the title. It should succinctly encapsulate the findings, methods, or models of the research, maintaining an element of novelty without explicitly disclosing the research subject. Moreover, the title must be limited to a maximum of 12 words.
  2. Abstract Clarity: Ensuring clarity in the abstract is imperative. It should be concise, spanning 140-200 words and encompassing vital components such as background, research objectives, methods, findings, conclusions, and novelty. Importantly, the abstract should refrain from including unexplained abbreviations.
  3. Keyword Relevance: Provide a minimum of three and a maximum of five specific keywords that reflect the core essence of the article. These keywords should be free of unexplained abbreviations unless widely recognized and understood.
  4. Article Proportion: Maintain a balanced proportion within the article: the introductory part should be 15-20%, the methodology section 10-20%, the findings plus discussion sections 40-60%, and the conclusion plus suggestion sections should constitute 5-15% of the entire article length.
  5. Literature Integration: Incorporate a comprehensive literature review within the introduction, delving into pertinent literature from the last decade. Clearly articulate a gap analysis and research objectives, establishing a coherent connection supported by substantial literature to highlight the research's novelty, significance, and its position within the ongoing discourse.
  6. Gap Addressing: Effectively address knowledge gaps within the manuscript. Explicitly expound on the potential benefits and relevance of the research findings in advancing scientific, technological, and artistic knowledge, coupled with societal contributions.
  7. Quantitative Research: In quantitative research, meticulous consideration of the research population and sample is crucial. Transparently present the sampling technique, ensuring it is grounded in both theoretical and empirical evidence. Additionally, utilize reliable and valid data collection instruments and employ a widely accepted quantitative methodology, explaining each step clearly while avoiding unnecessary teaching.
  8. Qualitative Research: For qualitative studies, ensure that the data meets the criteria of trustworthiness, including credibility, dependability, confirmability, and transferability. Provide detailed insights into the data calibration and triangulation process. Present a clear and thorough data analysis using accepted qualitative data analysis methodologies, referring to techniques employed by qualitative research experts.
  9. Detailed Findings: The article should provide a comprehensive description of research outcomes and findings, elucidating both quantitative and qualitative aspects. This detailed exposition should encompass the core discoveries and empirical results, emphasizing their significance in the broader context of the study.
  10. Analytical Discussions: Comprehensive discussions are essential, interpreting the research outcomes by comparing and contrasting them with relevant prior studies. Conduct a robust analysis of the findings, exploring their implications, patterns, and anomalies. The discussions should delve into the theoretical, practical, and methodological implications of the research results, fostering an enriched understanding of the topic.
  11. Concise Conclusions: Conclusions should lucidly encapsulate primary findings, remaining aligned with the research objectives. Articulate conclusions through narrative paragraphs, avoiding a listing format. This section may also address unresolved inquiries or propose avenues for future research.
  12. Reference Credibility: Integrate a minimum of 20 pertinent references, with approximately 80% originating from recent sources published within the last decade, ideally not exceeding five years before the article submission. Over 80% of references should be derived from primary sources, such as journals and proceedings of international conferences endorsed by professional associations in the domain.
  13. Visual Quality: Tables, figures, formulas, and supplementary tools should adhere to established scientific norms, maintaining excellent quality and legibility. Each table, figure, formula, or cited tool should be confined within a single page, refraining from spanning multiple pages within the article.
  14. Linguistic Precision: The language employed throughout the manuscript should be scholarly English, demonstrating heightened accuracy in vocabulary and grammar. This precision ensures a polished and comprehensible presentation of research.
