The abstract is expected to contain the purpose, key concepts, findings, and implications of the work. Regardless of the language used in the main text, the abstract should be written in English.

Quotations of 40 or more words should be presented in block minus quotation marks, except for quotation(s) within a block quotation. Use italics for titles of books, periodicals, microfilm publications, journals, genera, species, varieties, technical/key term (e.g., those who answered rarely, occasionally, and never) when it first occurs, words that could be misread, statistical symbols or algebraic variables (e.g., t test, a/b= c/d, F(1,53) = 10.04), test scores, and scales.

Double-space endnotes, if any, in a new page after the last line of the main text.
