International Quarterly of Community Health Education - Instructions to Authors
All manuscripts should be submitted online at the International Quarterly of Community Health Education submission portal at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/qch. The site contains detailed instructions on how to submit and track the progression of a manuscript through the review process. All manuscripts will be assigned a manuscript number, and authors will receive email confirmation acknowledging receipt of submission. Authors should not transmit hard copies of their manuscripts to the journal office.
Manuscripts must be double-spaced and have wide margins. Paginate consecutively starting with the title page. The organization of the paper should be indicated by appropriate headings and subheadings.
Originality Authors should note that only original articles are accepted for publication. Submission of a manuscript represents certification on the part of the author(s) that neither the article submitted, nor a version of it has been published, or is being considered for publication elsewhere.
Abstracts of 100 to 150 words are required to introduce each article.
References should relate only to material cited within text and be listed in numerical order according to their appearance within text. State author’s name, title of referenced work, editor’s name, title of book or periodical, volume, issue, pages cited, year of publication, and DOI (digital object identifier).
Do not abbreviate titles. Please do not use ibid., op. cit., loc. cit., etc. In case of multiple citations, simply repeat the original numeral. Detailed specifications available from the editor upon request.
Footnotes are placed at the bottom of page where referenced. They should be numbered with superior arabic numbers without parentheses or brackets. Footnotes should be brief with an average length of three lines.
Figures should be referenced in text and appear in numerical sequence starting with Figure 1. Line art must be original drawings in black ink proportionate to our page size, and suitable for photographing. Indicate top and bottom of figure where confusion may exist. Labeling should be 8 point type. Clearly identify all figures. Figures should be drawn on separate pages and their placement within the text indicated by inserting: (Insert Figure 1 here).
Tables must be cited in text in numerical sequence starting with Table 1. Each table must have a descriptive title. Any footnotes to tables are indicated by superior lower case letters. Tables should be typed on separate pages and their approximate placement indicated within text by inserting: (Insert Table 1 here).
As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.
The collection of ORCID iDs from corresponding authors is now part of the submission process of this journal. If you already have an ORCID iD you will be asked to associate that to your submission during the online submission process. We also strongly encourage all co-authors to link their ORCID ID to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It takes seconds to do: click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. Your ORCID iD will become part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID iD is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.
