3.2 Abstract

A concise, brief and accurate abstract is required (between 250-300 words). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results, and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. References should therefore be avoided, but, if essential, they must be cited in full in the abstract, without relying on the reference list.

The abstract should, in the briefest terms possible, describe the:

1- General Topic – Usually about one sentence describing the topic investigated and why it is important.

2- Scope - One or two sentences describing the specific question being addressed or relationship investigated.

3- Method -One or two sentences describing analytical methods.

4- Principal findings - One or two sentences explaining the principle finding. Be specific and state only main point(s).

5- Conclusions- A single sentence that summarizes what you found out from results or relationship investigated.

3.3 An Arabic version of the abstracts   

Upon receiving the initial acceptances, authors are responsible to provide an Arabic version of the abstracted. It is the author's responsibility to make sure that the Arabic translated abstract is a correct and honest  translation.

3.4 Keywords

 Provide a maximum of 8 keywords immediately after the abstract

4. DOIs in References

The journal/publisher encourages authors to cite those items (journal articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, technical reports, working papers, dissertations, etc.) that have DOIs. When the cited items have DOIs, the authors should add DOI persistent links to the regular references. The DOI persistent links should be the last elements in the references. The persistent links should be active

Format of persistent link: http://dx.doi.org/+DOI

Example of persistent link: http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/2.901164                                                                                                                                                                                                                  The authors or editors may retrieve articles’ DOIs at http://www.crossref.org/SimpleTextQuery/.
