The objective of International Journal of Kybernology is to develop, promote and coordinate the science and practice in the broad area of governance. It also aims to help researchers, lecturers, government practitioners and policy makers to contribute and disseminate information and to learn from each other’s work.

 1.  Submission of manuscripts

IJoK invites for review original papers (research, literature review, essay) written in English, in the field of theory and practice of governance and related disciplines. Each manuscript must be accompanied by a statement that it has not been submitted for publication elsewhere. Manuscript should be typed in Microsoft Word with one line spacing, 10 - 20 pages including appendices and times-new-roman fonts. Two copies of typescript on A4 paper size and a CD-ROM with the corresponding file should be sent to the editor. The paper will then be reviewed using an independent blind review (advisory board) and the editorial team. Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to refuse any manuscript and to make suggestions and/or modifications before publication. Manuscripts, which have been accepted, become the property of the publisher.

2.  Organization of manuscript

Title page:

Title (14 pt, bold): as short as possible (10 – 12 words)
Authors (12 pt, normal): full names of all authors without academic degree titles.
Address (12 pt, normal): position, department, name of institution, full postal address, fax, and telephone and email numbers
Abstract (12 pt, italic): only in English, approximately 100 to 150 words.
Keywords (12 pt, normal): two to five words.

Main text (12 pt, normal):

Research-based paper may contain the following numbered sections in the given order (subheadings are allowed): Introduction (includes objectives of the research); Literature review; Methods; Result; Discussion; Conclusion; and the unnumbered section: References); Tables; Figures
Non research-based (review) paper may have a flexible format order, but it must include original work done by the authors.

Tables should be consecutively numbered (1, 2, etc.) according to their order of appearance in the main text. Each table should carry a short title, describing its contents in relation to the main text.

All illustrations, whether diagrams or photographs are referred to as Figures and they are numbered sequentially (1, 2, etc.). The figures are expected in the computer file form and/or made in the camera-ready size.

Proof will be sent (in paper or computer file) to the corresponding authors for correction
