Manuscript Guidelines

Regular manuscripts must…
  • Be double-spaced throughout (including references)
  • Not exceed 30 pages including references. Occasionally, a longer manuscript may be considered.
  • Provide, but do not count, a cover page with each author's name, position,email and place of employment, and a clear abstract of essential information of up to 100 words.
  • Not have authors names or other identifying information placed on the manuscript itself, as all manuscripts are peer-reviewed with a blind reviewing system.
  • Create a structured abstract of up to 500 words containing the following 6 sections: Purpose, Method, Findings, Limitations, Implications/recommendations, and Originality/contribution.

Writing Guidelines

When writing

  • Manuscripts must be prepared carefully, such that ideas flow coherently and writing is clear and concise. Avoid jargon, acronyms, and sexist terminology.
  • Use headings and subheadings to structure the content. Article titles and headings in the articles should be as short as possible.
  • Use tables sparingly, include only essential data, and combine tables wherever possible. Authors should submit no more than three tables and/or three figures with each manuscript.
  • The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th edition) serves as the style manual for JBM. Authors are encouraged to reduce bias in language against persons on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, racial or ethnic group, disability, or age by referring to the guidelines in the fifth edition of the APA manual.
