Cover Sheet and Author Identification: The cover sheet should contain the paper title, author’s name, professional position, institutional affiliation, phone numbers, and electronic-mail addresses. The body of the manuscript should bear only the title of the paper on the first page. To preserve the integrity of the blind review process, authors should avoid self-identification in the text as well as in notes and references (You may cite your work, but do not use wording that identifies you as the author).
References: References, citations, and general manuscript styling should be prepared in accordance with the APA format of the Publication manual of the American Psychological Association Sixth(6th)Edition. The American Psychological Association (APA) system of in-text citations and references provide the author's last name and the year of publication, usually before the cited material, and a page number in parentheses directly after the cited material such as the following:
Seymour (2014) suggested the main tasks of Christian educators to teach the meaning of the world and interpret it in our learners' life realities and experiences (31).
Setting off long quotations
Long quotations should be introduced by an informative sentence, usually followed by a colon. An example follows:
According to Mercer (2005), this approach is near to theological analogy which intends the flexible that children transforms their faithful identity in their different life communities:
A more cogent viewpoint(which I will expand upon below) asserts the "portability" of knowledge, skills, and practices children learn through transformation into identities within a particular faith community, whether they move from one faith community to a different one later in life, or to a more seasoned and mature understanding and practice within the community that shaped them as children (175).
