The manuscript has to be clear and concise. All abbreviations should be defined when first mentioned. For the revised manuscript, the authors are to highlight or color the text showing the changes and amendments. All articles must be written in English following the structure outlined below.
Research Article structure
Submission of the typical research article to the JADM should normally follow the sample article outlined below (Download; JADM typesetting template). This template is to assist authors in providing the appropriate article structure required by JADM. The JADM paper should be no more than 15 pages, inclusive of tables, references, figure captions, footnotes, endnotes. The research paper should be compiled in the following order: Title page; Abstract; Keywords; Introduction; State of Art; Significance/originality; Methods; Results; Conclusions; Acknowledgments; References; Appendices, as follows;
NOTE: all subtitles with the * symbol are mandatory in the research paper structure.
The Title should be informative, specific, and be an attractor to the content of the paper, capitalize each word (but not a, an, the….etc).
In the final published version, all authors' names, Author's institution, Department, Institution name, City name, country. capitalize each word (but not a, an, the…..etc) format as shown in the (JADM typesetting template), and full email addresses.
The abstract must not exceed 250 words. The Abstract should be standalone text without any references. Article abstract should be added to the Editorial Manager submission platform in the free-text box provided.
The main keywords that describe your research paper and collocate with the field of study. No less than three and no more than six keywords are required.
An introduction should present a deep background, motivation, and the aim of the research. The Introduction provides an understanding of the issues being researched. Given the heterogeneity of the readers, more references that cover the background should be provided. The overarching goal(s) of the research should be succinctly stated here.
State of Art / Review of literature*
It should address the relevant background literature through the analysis of the previous literature's content. The State of Art section provides and identifies the gaps in previous research contributions.
Provide the significance and originality of your research is essential. If the research aims are achieved, what will be the original contribution of your article. The novel concepts and theories have to be addressed and highlighted the new theoretical and conceptual approaches the article presents.
Results /Analysis /Argument /Critique *
For the Original Study and Case Report, providing the research hypothesis and methods is required. Both hypothesis and methods should be addressed clearly by describing the detailed methods, tools, input data, and measured outputs that have been used by the authors through the research which can be criticized or repeated by another cognate researcher. Presenting statistical models should ensure that the correct method has been used. Measured and analyzed output data should be presented in a form that can be readable, repeatable, and can be compared with previous publications.
Editorial, Review, and Theory papers usually follow an argumentative pattern that is formulated to explain, predict, and understand phenomena or provide critique to challenge and extend existing knowledge, within the limits of the critical bounding assumptions.
Conclusion / Discussion *
The conclusion/discussion section provides how the results/theoretical framework meet the research proposed hypotheses or the provided conceptual argument. Present any other claims that can be made based on these results/arguments. Theoretical and Editorial papers normally end with a restatement of the problem under investigation and a brief summary of the proposed solution(s)/theoretical approaches discussed.
Acknowledgments / Financial support
The Acknowledge sector declines individuals or organizations that provided authors advice or support (non-financial), while funding, grants, and financial supports should be listed in the financial support section.
Provide financial support sources in detail for all authors, including multiple grant numbers and amounts, which could be separated by a comma and space.
