Manuscript Submission Guidelines

International Journal of Knowledge Content Development & Technology (IJKCDT)


Peer Review Policy
IJKCDT uses a double blind peer review process neither the author nor the reviewer knows one another identity. The reviewers may include their name in their review if they wish but our standard policy practice is for both parties to remain anonymous. Each manuscript is read and reviewed by at least three referees. manuscripts are reviewed as auickly as possible, and an editorial decision is most often reached 4-6 weeks after submission.

Article Type

IJKCDT publishes original research, review articles, and book reviews on library and information science and knowledge content.

• Full Articles

Contributions should normally be between 4000 and 10,000 words in length. contributions must include an abstact of approximately 100 words and up to six keywords. The abstract should include the following unferlying purpose or research problem (stated early in the abstract), methodology used (including research design, sample and data collection methods), a concise discussion of afew significant research findings, and an overview of the main conclusions of the paper.
The journal uses footnotes where necessary, marked in the text by a superscript mumber. Discursive footnotes are allowed. Reference in both the text and in any footnotes should follow APA style.

• Review article.

The review article may be about one important book, several books, or 'latest' article.


Structure of thesis

Segmentation - Numbering

• Section

Articles must be divided into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (next is 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2 and so on. Green is not included in section numbering. This numbering system should also be used for internal cross-references instead of referring to "text". You can also give a simple title to all subsections. Each title should be displayed in a separate line.

• Introduction.
This section should provide the purpose of the work and the appropriate background, not a detailed literature survey or summary of the results.

main body
This section examines the importance of results without simply repeating them. It is often appropriate to combine the results and discussion sections. The author should avoid extensive citation or discussion of published literature.

• conclusion
This section should be relatively simple and can be divided into specific points.

• Appendix
If there are multiple of these, they should be identified by A, B, etc. The formulas and equations in the appendix must be numbered separately. Eq. (A.1), Equation. (A.2), etc.; Eq. (B.1), etc. in subsequent appendices. Similarly, for tables and figures: Table A.1; Figure A.1 and so on.


Essential information

• Title
The title should be concise and informative. Do not use possible abbreviations, acronyms, and formulas because titles are frequently used in information retrieval systems.

• Author Name, Affiliation, and Position

All authors of a manuscript should include their full name, affiliation, and Position on the cover page of the manuscript. In cases where the family name may be ambiguous (such as a double name), please indicate correct usage clearly. The authors’ affiliation addresses (where the actual research was conducted) should be presented below the names. All affiliations should be indicated with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author’s name and in front of the e-mail address of each author. The Position should be indicated before the author’s name, it could be divided into a professor, lecturer, student(Bachelor-, Master-, Ph.D. student), Post-Doctorate researcher, etc.

•  corresponding author

The author must clearly indicate who will handle the correspondence at all stages of review and publication, including after publication. Telephone and fax numbers (including country and region numbers) are provided in addition to email addresses and full postal addresses. Contact information must be kept up to date by the corresponding author.



The author provides concise and realistic Abstract. The purpose, main results, and main conclusions of the study should be briefly described. Abstract is often presented separately from the work, so it is important to be able to understand it alone. For this reason, references should generally be avoided, but if absolutely necessary, the author and the year should be cited in the abstract. Non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should also be avoided, but if absolutely necessary, they should be defined when first used in Abstract.



The author provides up to six keywords, taking care to avoid general and plural terms. The author should also avoid using several conceptual terms, such as keyword phrases with words 'and' or 'of'. Use as little abbreviations as possible and only abbreviations that are firmly established in the field. Keywords should follow one of the main seeshorus styles. The selected term should be suitable for computer analysis because both Abstract and keyword are used for automatic indexing.



The acknowledgements should be in a separate section between the conclusion at the end of the paper and the bibliography. It should not be included as a footnote for the title page or title. The acknowledgements should list individuals who have provided help during the study, such as language support, writing support, or article reading evidence.



• citation
It is necessary to ensure that all cited references are in the reference list (the opposite case). The references cited in the abstract must be provided in full (see the abstract guidelines above). Unreleased results or personal communication are generally not recommended to be included in the reference list, but can be mentioned in the article text. If these references are included in the bibliography list, you must follow the journal's standard bibliography style. Instead of the publication date, you must include "unreleased results" or "personal communication". If you cite "On Report" as a reference, it means that the item has been approved for publication.

• Refer to the web.
Web references must contain at least a full URL or resource and the date of last access. If possible, the author should attempt to provide additional information such as DOI, author name, date, reference to source publications, etc.

Reference style of text

 The citation of the text should follow the reference style used by the American Psychology Association. You refer to the American Psychological Society Publishing Manual, 6th edition, ISBN 978-1-4338-0561-5, and a copy of it can be ordered at 4200067 or APA Order Dept., POB 2710, Hyattsville, MD 20784, USA.

List: References should be sorted in alphabetical order and then further sorted in chronological order if necessary. At least two references of the same author in the same year must be identified by letters such as "a", "b", and "c" after the publication year.
