Submit Manuscript as an email attachment to email@example.com. Papers also can be submitted through the online submission system. Manuscripts should be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript. Submissions by anyone other than one of authors will not be accepted.
Hill Publishing Group can exceptionally accept shorter or longer manuscripts, provided that the scientific content is of high value. No additional page charges are required if a manuscript is substantially longer than 17 pages. All submitted manuscripts must include the following items:
Title - Make sure that the title is specific and concise. Titles should be presented in title case - all words except the first word should be in lower case letters.
List of authors, their affiliations and email addresses - Provide the full names and affiliations of all the authors. Affiliations should include department, university or organization, city, and country. One of the authors should be designated as the corresponding author, and their email address needs to be included.
Abstract - The abstract should briefly introduce the manuscript, not exceeding 400 words. No citations should be included in the abstract.
Keywords - At least 3 keywords or phrases should be included and must be separated by commas to distinguish them.
Introduction - The introduction section should provide a context for your manuscript. When preparing the introduction, please bear in mind that some readers will not be experts in your field of research.
Main body - the main body part should include the main proposed ideas, results and discussions.
Conclusions - A conclusion is where you summarize the paper's findings and generalize their importance, discuss ambiguous data, and recommend further research. An effective conclusion should provide closure for a paper, leaving the reader feeling satisfied that the concepts have been fully explained.
Acknowledgments - You as the author are free to decide whether to include acknowledgments or not. Usually, the acknowledgments section includes the names of people who in some way contributed to the work, but do not fit the criteria to be listed as the authors. This section of your manuscript can also include information about funding sources.
References - Hill Publishing Group uses the numbered citation method for reference formatting.
APA style uses an author-date reference citation system in the text with an accompanying reference list. That means that to cite any reference in a paper, the writer should cite the author and year of the work, either by putting both in parentheses separated by a comma (parenthetical citation) or by putting the author in the narrative of the sentence and the year in parentheses (narrative citation).
Example narrative citation: Schmidt and Oh (2016) described a fear among the public that the findings of science are not actually real.
Example parenthetical citation: In our postfactual era, many members of the public fear that the findings of science are not real (Schmidt & Oh, 2016).
The reference list: The entries are in alphabetical order according to the first author listed. In the reference list, the surname (family name) of an author comes first, followed by the first initials. If there are several authors, each is separated from the others with a comma, and there is an ‘&’ before the final author.
All references should be formatted in APA style in the text and listed in the REFERENCES section, as shown below:
