Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission file uses the approved submissions template.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.

Author Guidelines

All successful submissions should be in English using the American Psychological Association (APA) 7th edition style. For more assistance with APA 7th edition, the author can refer to the APA Style website at If papers are not submitted in APA style, they will be returned without review. Articles using APA 6th edition may still be accepted.

Unpublished manuscripts are preferred, but previously published manuscripts may be accepted with appropriate permissions.

Authors will avoid any forms of plagiarism, including self-plagiarism.

The manuscript is submitted in Microsoft Word. Tables and figures must be formatted into the document using Microsoft Word Tables using the table-formatting feature. Redundancy of information among text and the figures or tables should be avoided. Figures and table should be part and fit in the logical location of the Word file.

Recommended manuscript size is no more than 10-12 pages in length, but the journal would consider up to 25 pages as needed (includes title page, references, appendices, etc.). All manuscripts require an abstract of no more than 250 words (1500 characters and spaces). Submit 3-5 keywords that best describe the article.

JOHE uses a peer review setup to determine quality of articles.

All submissions must use the approved template, found here.


No fees are assessed to authors or readers for article submission, article processing, article publication, or article access.
