AUTHOR GUIDELINES

RAIS Journal for Social Sciences is an international, open access, peer-reviewed journal that will be online and print twice a year. The publication language of the journal is English. The manuscripts must be sent as an email with attached files to rais.e@email.com or using the online submission system. 

The authors are responsible for the content of the manuscript published; opinions put forward, the correctness of the references and figures, and the visuals with copyright.

There is no charge for submitting an article for review or publication.

Manuscript Preparation

The language of the manuscript must be in English and carefully checked for spelling and grammar before submission. The manuscript should not exceed 20 pages including title, abstract, main text, references, and tables. Please indicate Author’s names, affiliations including the country name, and the e-mail address of each author. The Abstract should be brief, indicating the purpose/significance of the research and must be between 150-250 words. After the abstract, please provide a maximum of 8 keywords. All Figures should be of high quality, legible and numbered according to sequence below each figure. Please follow The Chicago Manual of Style guidelines for citations. 

The Chicago Manual of Style presents two basic documentation systems: (1) notes and bibliography and (2) author-date. Please edit the text and the references according to the author-date system. The simplest way to cite the sources or to include information from an outside resource in your paper is to parenthetically give the author's last name, the year of publication, and page number e.g., (Clarke 2004, 25). Citation of sources should appear in both the body of your text (In-text citation) and at the end of your paper (Reference list).
