Research articles

Research articles should present the results of an original research study. These manuscripts should describe how the research was conducted and provide a thorough analysis of the results of the research. The research article format is suitable for many different fields and different types of studies. It includes full Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion sections.

Survey articles

Survey focuses on data collection methods for large scale surveys, but papers on special populations are welcome. Papers on experiments, or papers based on data from non-probability samples are welcome given that authors undertake steps to assess external validity or limitations concerning population estimates in detail.

Review articles

A review article provides an overview of the published literature in a particular subject area. Review Articles provide a comprehensive summary of research on a certain topic, and a perspective on the state of the field and where it is heading. Reviews are often widely read (for example, by researchers looking for a full introduction to a field) and highly cited. Reviews commonly cite approximately 50 primary research articles.

Case studies

These articles report specific instances of interesting phenomena. A goal of Case Studies is to make other researchers aware of the possibility that a specific phenomenon might occur. Case studies help to provide a continual flow of effective up-to-date cases to promote excellence in research.

Book reviews

Book reviews are published in most academic journals. The aim of a book review is to provide insight and opinion on recently published scholarly books. Book reviews are also relatively short articles and less time-consuming. Book reviews are a good publication option for early-career researchers as it allows the researcher to stay abreast of new literature in the field, while at the same time, adding to his publication list.
