How to Submit
Goodwood Publishing uses Open Journal Systems (OJS) to promptly send your article to our editorial boards for review. We’ve provided a step-by-step guide that will help you to submit your paper. Prior to submission, you should prepare two Docx files as follows:
- Cover, consisting of the article title, authors’ names, affiliation (department, institution, city, country), and email.
- Full manuscript, consisting of the following structure: Title, abstract, keywords, introduction, literature review, research methodology, results and discussions, conclusion, acknowledgment, and references. You don’t need to write the authors’ identity in this file since we use a double-blind peer review system. It is also essential to format your article following our template.
A step-by-step guide
Follow the steps below to complete the submission of the manuscript. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
