Author Guidelines

On making a submission to the journal, authors are first asked to check carefully their articles to ensure that the articles strictly comply with the following guidelines. Submitted manuscripts may be eliminated from the review process and sent back to authors if they do not adhere to the Dalat University Journal of Science's editorial policies.

[1] The manuscripts must reflect original scientific work that has never been published and is not under consideration by other journals;

[2] The manuscripts must be in compliance with the guidelines presented in the Manuscript Template. Manuscripts that do not follow the Manuscript Template issued by the DLU JOS Editorial Office will not be considered. Please download the Article Format Introductions for your further information. The Title page and Manuscript Template can be downloaded here:

LaTeX: Title page and Manuscript Template

[3] The manuscripts must be written in English. Please make sure that the detailed information of all the contributors to the manuscript is added to the DPMS of the DLU JOS and that the submitted manuscript is accompanied by the Title page.

[4] Authors are required to implement the reference style of APA (The American Psychological Association reference style). The journal especially encourages authors to use reference management software (such as Endnote; Zotero; Biblioscape; and so forth), or use Insert Citation on Microsoft Word to automate and systematize in-text citations and the acknowledgment of reference sources;

[5] All submitted manuscripts will be managed systematically by the Editorial Office. Any manuscript that meets the journal objectives and the author guidelines will be assigned to one section editor who will provide an objective assessment of the paper and determine if it is useful enough to conduct a double-blind peer-review process;

[6] All manuscripts in the DLU JOS have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and refereeing by at least one anonymous referee. The DLU JOS currently has a turnaround time of 90 days on average between submission and initial decision;
