What is the purpose of the study? Why are you conducting the study? The main section of the article should start with anintroductory section which provides more details about the paper’s purpose, motivation, research methods, and 􀃘ndings. The introductionshould be relatively nontechnical, yet clear enough for an informed reader to understand the manuscript’s contribution.
The “introduction” in the manuscript is necessary to demonstrate the motives of the research. It analyzes the empirical, theoretical andmethodological issues to contribute to the existing literature. This introduction will be linked with the following parts, most noticeably theliterature review.
Explaining the problem’s formulation should cover the following points: (1) Problem recognition and its signi􀃘cance; (2) clear identi􀃘cationof the problem and the appropriate research questions; (3) coverage of problem’s complexity; and (4) clear objectives.
Literature review
. The second part, “Literature Review” investigates the gap that will be exposed and solved. The 􀃙ow of all the ideas isrequired to be clear, linked, well-crafted and well developed. It serves as the source of the research’s question and especially the base or thehypotheses that respond to the research objective. We advise using the current and primary sources from trusted international references(top tier-journals).
Method, data, and analysis
. The third part of the manuscript, “Method, Data, and Analysis” is designed to describe the nature of the data. Themethod should be well elaborated enhancing the model, the analysis approach and the steps taken. Equations should be numbered as weillustrate.
This section typically has the following sub-sections: Sampling (a description of the target population, the research context, and units ofanalysis; the sampling itself; and the respondents’ pro􀃘les); data collection; and measures (or measurements).
The research methodology should cover the following points: (1) A concise explanation of the research methodology is prevalent; (2) reasonsto choose particular methods are well described; (3) research design is accurate; (4) the sample design is appropriate; (5) data collectionprocesses are proper; and (6) data analysis methods are relevant and state-of-the-art.

. The author needs to report the results in suf􀃘cient detail so that the reader can see which statistical analysis wasconducted and why, and later to justify the conclusions.
. In this section, the author presents brief conclusions from the results of the research with suggestions for advanced researchersor general readers. A conclusion may cover the main points of the paper, but do not replicate the abstract in the conclusion. Authors shouldexplain the empirical and theoretical bene􀃘ts, the economic bene􀃘ts, and the existence of new 􀃘ndings.
The author may present any signi􀃘cant 􀃙aws and limitations of the study, which could reduce the validity of the writing, thus raisingquestions from the readers (whether, or in what way), the limits in the study may have affected the results and conclusions. Limitationsrequire a critical judgment and interpretation of the impact of their research. The author should provide the answer to the question: Is this aproblem caused by an error, or in the method selected, or the validity, or something else?
