Editorial Policies

The Arab Journal of Administrative Sciences publishes research that develops tests, applications, or advances in management and administrative theory and practice. The scope of acceptable articles and research notes embraces all types of research methodology and subjects related to management and administrative sciences, as long as the articles or research notes meet the standards established for publication in the Journal. For a manuscript to be accepted for publication, the research topics should be of interest to the readership; the research should be well-designed and well-executed, and the material presented effectively and efficiently. All manuscripts submitted should be screened before being sent to reviewers. Those considered inappropriate will be returned promptly to the sender. Manuscripts that pass the initial screening will be sent to two reviewers for evaluation using a double-blind review procedure. All papers are also subjected to editorial review, which covers style, quality of communication, and academic content. The editor makes every effort to give a decision on manuscripts as soon as possible.

Guidelines for Submission

1. Authors should send an e-mail file attachment to:ajas@ku.edu.kw.
2. A letter to the editor accompanying every submission should contain a statement that the manuscript or a similar one has not been published and is not, nor will it be, under consideration for publication elsewhere while being reviewed by the Journal.
3. The cover page of the paper should list the name, title, affiliation, telephone number(s), and complete address of each author. To assure an anonymous review, authors should not identify themselves directly or indirectly elsewhere in their manuscripts. The cover page should also state no such acknowledgments.
4. Manuscripts should be submitted in Arabic/English, typed in double-spaced, 12-point font (Times New Roman preferred) with 1-inch (2.5 cm) margins in Word, not as PDFs. The number of words should be between 8,000-10,000 words counts including references, appendices, tables, and figures. A manuscript should be as the subject and research method permits.
5. In the case of a manuscript reporting on field surveys or experiments, a copy of the instrument (questionnaire, case, interview plan, or the like) should be submitted.
6. Author(s) should check their manuscripts for typos and grammatical errors before submitting them to the journal.
7. Manuscripts that do not follow submission guidelines will be returned to the submitting author for reformatting.

Manuscript Preparation and Style

All pages, including tables, appendices, and references should be serially numbered. Subsections should not be numbered.

The abstracts (English & Arabic) should contain the following points between 150-250 words counts. Purpose
Study design/methodology/approach
Sample and data
Research limitations/implications
Keywords: 3 to 6 keywords
JEL classification: Identify the proper JEL classification

Tables and Figures:
Each table and figure should be in a number and a title indicating its content.

Literature Citations:
Footnotes should not be used for literature citation; instead, the work should be cited by the author's name and year of publication in the body of the text, shown in parenthesis, e.g., (Jensen, 1976) or for specific quotations: (Jensen, 1976:115); With two authors: (Katz and Kahn, 1982); With more than two authors: (Williams et al(in italic)., 1994); With more than one source cited together: (Regan, 1982; Manz and Sims, 1980); With two or more works done by an author: (Foster, 1977, 1979). If the author's name is mentioned in the text, it needs not to be repeated in the citation: For example, " McClelland (1961) advocated…" When the reference list contains more than one work of an author in a single year, the suffix a, b, etc. follows the date in the text citation: e.g., (Tversky, 1981 a).

Reference List:
Every manuscript must include a list of references containing only those works cited. Titles of journals should not be abbreviated. The entries should be arranged in alphabetical order according to the surname of the author. Multiple works by the same author(s) should be listed in chronological order of publication. It is preferred to use the author's initials instead of proper names. Samples of entries are as follows: 1. Hendrick, T. E., and More, F. G. 1985. Production / Operations Management( in Italic), 9th ed., Homewood, II.: Richard D. Irwin, Inc.
2. Gorry, G. M. and Scott-Morton, M. S. 1989. A Framework for Management Information Systems. Sloan Management Review(in Italic), 30(3): 49-61.

Textual notes should be used only for extension and useful excursions of information that if included in the body of the text might disrupt its continuity. Notes should be double-spaced and numbered consecutively throughout the manuscript with superscript Arabic numerals. They are placed at the end of the text. Footnotes should be kept to a minimum.

A Brief Bio:
Authors should submit a brief bio of no more than 50 words indicating the highest academic degree earned (details of place and date to be included); current occupation, rank or position, name of the institution as well as major fields of interest, and email ID.

Book Reviews:
The journal publishes reviews of recent books of relevance to researchers and practitioners in the Arab World. The book reviews should be typed on one side of standard size (A4) paper and should be double-spaced.

Dissertation Abstracts:
The journal publishes abstracts of M.A. and Ph.D. dissertations that have already been passed and approved, and which are related to the field of administrative sciences or other similar areas of interest. The abstracts are not to exceed 5 pages and should secure the consent of the dissertations' authors.

Readers' Views and Comments:
The journal welcomes readers' views and comments on its published articles. Two referees including the author of the article himself screen the comments submitted for publication. Once the comments are approved, the author has the right to a response. Publication rules and formalities are to be followed here as elsewhere in the journal.

The journal welcomes brief reports on conferences, seminars, and round tables recently attended, which are of relevance to its areas of interest.
