Author Guidelines

Notes to Contributors

The Gezira Journal for Educational Sciences and Humanities is a refereed biannual journal issued by the Deanship of Graduate Studies and Scientific Research, University of Gezira, Sudan and is concerned with publishing original, innovative and inventive scientific research in all fields of educational sciences and the humanities, according to the following guidelines and procedures.

  1. The magazine publishes original research which has not been published elsewhere before and which abides by the universally acknowledged steps of scientific research methodology, written in either Arabic or English.
  2. Specialized critical studies, book reviews, discussion papers, reports on symposia or conferences, and university theses may be considered for publication.
  3. The research should add considerably to its topic and should be written in a suitable style.
  4. The research should follow one of the following two modes.
    1. Field and experimental research: The research is required to provide an introduction explaining the nature, objectives and importance of the study and the need for it, followed by a clear statement of the research problem and its hypotheses based on a solid background. The researcher is also required to provide a special section with the methodological procedures describing the study population, sample and tools as well as a separate section of statistical analysis (if any) and discussion of results concluding with a list of the references and sources consulted.
    2. Theoretical Research: The researcher, here, is required to begin with an introduction explaining the problem of the research and the need to deal with it. The research should then be divided into independent sections, each introducing an independent thought in the overall frame of the research topic. The research should then conclude with a summary followed by the references and sources consulted, arranged in the appropriate manner.
  5. References in text should begin with the family name only and the year of publication both between brackets, e.g. (Rutter, 1995). In the case of three or more authors, only the name of the first shall be written with the word "et al", e.g. (Mayer, et al 1992).

- All references cited in text should be included in the list of references at the end of the paper.

  1. All papers submitted to the journal will be subjected to initial examination by the editorial board to decide whether they will be refereed and the board reserves the right not to accept the paper without explaining reasons
  2. Papers will be subjected to scientific refereeing and the editorial board reserves the right to make nonsubstantial changes in the paper.
  3. All rights of publication of an accepted paper shall transfer to the journal
  4. An unaccepted paper will not be returned to its author.

Paper Submission Regulations:

  1. The author should submit three typewritten copies on A4 size paper with margins of 2.5 cm and the typing should be on only one side of the paper (including the footnotes, references and sources, abstracts, tables, data and indices).
  2. Papers submitted to the journal should be original and are not expected to have been or to be submitted for publication elsewhere until the end of the process of refereeing.
  3. The researcher would be notified of the receipt of his/her paper and its processing.
  4. The first page of the paper should include the title, the name/names of the author/authors, work place, address, phone and fax or postal number (if any).
  5. An abstract containing only the title should be submitted on an independent page.
  6. Manuscripts should not exceed 30 typewritten pages including references figures/ tables and indices.
  7. Copies of questionnaires or any other tools used should be attached.
  8. The author should send a copy of the paper on an IBM disc after the performance of the required modifications and the acceptance of the paper for publication.
  9. All opinions in a paper are expressive of the author's, not the journal's point of view.
