Manuscript Guidelines for Contributors



General Guidelines

All manuscripts accepted for the presentation at the concurrent sessions with our affiliated conference will be submitted to the IJITGEB (Volume 1, Issue 1) for further review. Other interested contributors whose research paper has not been published or for on-going consideration for publication in any form of language elsewhere can be considered.

Submissions of manuscript must be sent through e-mail in Microsoft Word (MSWord) format. The manuscript should be in English and in case written in other language, must be translated to English. The manuscript should strictly conform with the format set by IJITGEB committee.


Manuscript Preparation

The title, name(s), affiliation(s), address(es), and contact number(s) should appear on a separate cover page. This ensures anonymity of the authors during the review process. Any of the author's name should not appear elsewhere or in any part of the manuscript.

After the cover page, the title should be short and informative with a maximum of twelve (12) words. It should contain the major keywords which clearly depicts its relationship to its field.

An abstract of 100 - 150 words. Keywords should be limited to five (5) words.

Manuscript should have a maximum of 7000 words count including text in tables, figures, footnotes, references and etc. in the final publication. It must conform to the American Psychological Association Publication Manual, 6th Edition.

Non-conformance to the specifications specified above will be returned to the author for proper style revision. Contributors should be aware that the journal is for international audience.


Tables and Figures

All tables and figures must be written on a separate page and not as part of the manuscript text. Contributors should have figures with high quality resolution for maximum print reproduction. The approximate position in page or paragraph number of tables and figures should be indicated within the page.


Proofs

Page proofs are sent through email to the designated contributor. Revisions must be checked and affected carefully and must be returned within a stated time.


Review Process

Submitted manuscripts are refereed by research experts identified by the Editorial Board. A manuscript is evaluated based on the following criteria: scholarship, originality, clarity of discourse, and significance, including the degree the subject matter contributes to the field of information technology in governance, education and business practices. Comments and suggestions are communicated to the author and must affect revision as requested. The Editorial Board has the final decision on manuscripts whether accepted or not accepted for publication.


Copyright

Once the papers are accepted, IJITGEB become the copyright owner, unless otherwise specifically agreed upon. Thus, authors should secure consent for any parts of the article the copyright of which is owned by someone else or an organization and pay any fees involved. The author still is given the personal freedom to copy or to use in subsequent work, material contained in their papers. Please download the “Copyright Transfer and Consent to Publish” here.


Print Reproduction

Print reproduction of the journal issue is subject to fees because it entails cost. This is only upon the request of the contributor for a print copy of the journal.
