Submission and Review Process
Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically to the journal’s email address ( in two (2) files. One of the files should include the author’s contact details (Name, title, address, telephone and e-mail) and the other should be anonymous so that it is sent to the reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. We acknowledge all manuscripts upon receipt via email. Authors will also receive a second email informing them about the reviewers’ answer on whether their manuscript will be published or if it needs further improvements.

Manuscript Format
The text should be written with 1.5 line spacing and 3cm wide page margins. Titles should not exceed 10 words and abbreviations should be avoided. In-text abbreviations must be defined at their first mention in the text and the actual abbreviation should be cited in brackets. Articles should be divided into clearly defined and numbered sections, subsections, paragraphs etc. in Arabic numbering, starting from 0 for the Introduction if there is one.

Section headings should be in bold lower-case letters (e.g. 3. Research methodology),
subsection headings in bold Italics (3.1 Sample and data collection process) and the
sub-headings in Italics (1.1.1, 1.1.2, and so on).
Authors are kindly requested to be consistent regarding punctuation. Double quotation marks (“…”) are used to cite quotations. If the quotation exceeds three lines, it should be cited separately, as a separate block of double-spaced text consistently indented from the left and right margin in double quotation marks with wider margins than the rest of the text and with a full reference of the source. Single quotation marks can be used when a word is used metaphorically (for example, this students is a ‘star’) or for a reference to a word or an expression (for example, morpheme ‘παν’ can also denote..”). Italics are used for emphasis or for a specific term. Letters in bold are exclusively used for headings and for table or figures captions (Table 3, Scheme 2 , Figure 1). Underlining and capital case letters in the text or in the reference list should be avoided.

Footnotes should be used sparingly. In case authors consider them necessary, they should number them consecutively throughout the article and present them separately at the end of the article (End notes).

Citation in text
Each reference must be cited in the text using the surnames of the author and the year of publication enclosed in parenthesis and if needed the specific page or pages for example, shich should also be placed within the parentheses: "(Barney 1960, p 188)". (Tsoukalas, 1977 35-6), (Poulantzas 1982),“ According to Carrasquillo & Rodriguez (1996:27),..'' ,''As Halliday suggests (1985:64-66)...''.
For citations with two or more authors, use the first author's name followed by "et al" (e.g. Βimmel et al., 2000). Series of citations can be listed in alphabetical order or chronological order and separated by commas: (Αlexiou, 2000, Fragoudaki & Dragona 1997), (Fragoudaki & Dragona 1997, Αlexiou, 2000) albeit authors should be consistent throughout the manuscript.

Reference List

References should be listed fully in alphabetical order according to the last name of the first author. If there are more references by the same author, they should be listed according to their chronological order.
