The articles that are sent to be evaluated for publication in Journal of Sport and Socıal Scıences (JSSS) are designed according to the rules stated below:

Preparation of Manuscripts: Research Papers

  1. The language of the journal is English.

  2. Each manuscript should be Manuscripts should be submitted in Word. Use a normal, plain font (e.g., 12-point Times Roman) for text. typed double-spaced on A4 (210 × 297 mm) paper size. It should be arranged in the following order: Title, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion,  Acknowledgement, References.

  3. The length of the article should not exceed 30 pages. Margins are: 2.5 cm on the top, 2.5 cm at the bottom, 2.5 cm from the right and left.

  4. The title of the article aligned in the centre in bold with font-size 14.

  5. Author(s’) name(s), name of the current institution, department name and e mail address are to be filled in on the copyring form. Since the blind refereeing is employed in the journal,  information about the author(s) should not be mentioned on the article.

  6. Initially, there has to be a ‘abstract’ of the article in at most 200 words. Should start on a new page after the title page and should be typed in single-space to distinguish it from the Introduction. Abstracts should briefly reflect all aspects of the study, as most databases list mainly abstracts.

  7. Provide four to six appropriate key words after abstract.

  8. Titles in the text are to be numerated with Arabic figures (e.g. 1., 1.1,1.1.2...etc.) with depth not more than 4. The main titles are to be in font-size 12 in bold, the subtitles and the followings are to be in font size 12, in bold and italics.

  9. The main text must be written single spaced. This will save pages, makes it easier for reviewers to handle and helps slow down global warming by using less paper.

  10. Introduction; shall start immediately after the Abstract, as the next paragraph, but should be typed in 1.5-spaced. The Introduction should lead the reader to the importance of the study; tie-up published literature with the aims of the study and clearly states the rationale behind the investigation.

  11. Materials and Methods; shall start as a continuation to introduction on the same page. All important materials used along with their source shall be mentioned. The main methods used shall be briefly described, citing references. Trivial details may be avoided. New methods or substantially modified methods may be described in sufficient detail. The statistical method and the level of significance chosen shall be clearly stated. EJOED prefers to publish work that has been subjected to an appropriate statistical test at one level of significance.

  12. Results; all findings presented in tabular or graphical form shall be described in this section. The data should be statistically analyzed and the level of significance stated. Data that is not statistically significant need only to be mentioned in the text – no illustration is necessary. All Tables and figures must have a title or caption and a legend to make them self-explanatory. Results section shall start after materials and methods section on the same page.

  13. Discussion; this section should follow results, deal with the interpretation of results, convey how they help increase current understanding of the problem and should be logical. Unsupported hypothesis should be avoided. The Discussion should state the possibilities the results uncover, that need to be further explored. There is no need to include another title such as “Conclusions” at the end of Discussion. Results and discussion of results can also be combined under one section, Results and Discussion.

  14. Acknowledgements; should be given after the text and not in the form of foot-notes.

  15. Tables and diagrams are to be titled and numerated. Titles must be positioned above the tables (e.g. Table 1. Name of the table), and under the figures (e.g. Figure 1. Name of the figure).

  16. 8. References to the sources must be given in parenthesis in the text (e.g. Atik, 2017; Atik et al., 2017; Atik and Kaya, 2017).

  17. All references should be formatted in APA style in the text and listed in the REFERENCES section, as shown below:
