INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS OF MASALIQ JOURNAL

  1. The text submitted by the author is the original scientific paper, has never been published, and is not being submitted for publication in other media/journals.
  2. The proposed text may include results of studies (field/literature), conceptual ideas, studies, applications of theories, and criticisms in the fields of social sciences, education, management, and Islamic studies.
  3. The manuscript can be written either in English or Arabic. Manuscripts should be typed using the Microsoft Word program, Garamond font, 12-point size, on A4 paper with 3 cm margins on the top, bottom, left, and right sides, and using 1.5 spacing and a one-column format.
  4. We recommend preparing the references with a bibliography software package, such as Mendeley, EndNote, ReferenceManager, or Zotero, to avoid typing mistakes and duplicated references. 
  5. The systematic structure of the manuscript includes the Title, Authors' names, Authors' affiliations and emails, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, and References
  6. The Title should contain essential variables in the research. Including the research location is unnecessary unless the discussion specifically focuses on something unique to that location.
  7. The Author's Name and Affiliation must be written correctly and consistently, both in OJS and in the manuscript. The author's affiliation should be complete, including the university, province/state, and country. All authors mentioned in the manuscript must be listed in OJS when filling out the 'authors' section during the article submission process.
  8. A single paragraph Abstract of about 200-250 words should be provided, with no indentation of the first line and 1 space between lines, using 11-point font. We strongly encourage authors to use the following structured format for abstracts, without headings: (1) Background: briefly discuss the gap analysis addressed in this study and highlight the study's objectives; (2) Methods: provide a concise description of the main methods used, including samples/participants, instruments, data collection techniques, and data analysis methods; (3) Results: summarize the main findings of the article, ensuring they align with the study's objectives; (4) Implications: briefly discuss the practical implications of your study. The abstract should provide an objective representation of the article and should not include results that are not presented or substantiated in the main text, nor should it exaggerate the main conclusions.
  9. The Introduction must be clear and descriptive, covering at least five aspects: (1) Discussion of issues related to the research, including international and national issues, supported by relevant sources; (2) Explanation of researchers' responses to the issues, ideally incorporating expert opinions to bolster the argument; (3) Review of previous research related to the presented issues, highlighting gaps and relevance to the current study; (4) Justification of the novelty or gap in the research using relevant theories and primary sources; and (5) Description of the study's focus, such as stating the purpose or research problem descriptively in the final paragraph of the introduction, without using bullets or numbering.
  10. Methods should be described with sufficient details to allow others to replicate and build on the published results. This section explains the research design used, the reasons for the design, the research procedures applied, the population and research samples or participants, research instruments, data collection techniques, and data analysis techniques. The description should be in the past tense.
  11. The Results are presented in a clear and detailed manner. Research results can be presented based on research results at each stage of research or research results that answer each problem formulation or others as long as the results of the research that have been carried out are visible. Research results should be supported by empirical evidence. This section may be divided into subheadings. It should provide a concise and precise description of the experimental results, their interpretation, and the experimental conclusions that can be drawn.
  12. In the Discussion, the authors should discuss the results and how they can be interpreted from previous studies and the working hypotheses, not repeating the explanation in the research results section. The findings and their implications should be discussed in the broadest context possible. May also highlight future research direction. The discussion must also refer to the theory or results of previous research to see whether the research results contradict or support each other with the theory or results of previous research. In addition, in this discussion, the novelty of the research results should be seen compared to previous research.
  13. In this Conclusion, the authors must describe the answer to the problem or research question posed. The authors should not explain sentences repeatedly from the previous section. However, the authors must abstract the article's contents related to the answers to the formulation of the problem or research question. In addition, the authors should describe the implications and limitations of this study. This section should be written descriptively, without using numbering or bullets.
  14. References. We recommended preparing the references with a bibliography software package to avoid typing mistakes and duplicated references, such as Mendeley, EndNote, ReferenceManager, or Zotero. Include the digital object identifier (DOI) for all references where available. Order the reference list entries alphabetically by author. All references must be in the body of the article and vice versa. The source referred to in the body of the article must be in the reference section. The references used are at least 15 references consisting of a minimum of 80% from journal articles and the rest from other references.
