General Requirements

JOHS (Journal of Human sciences), in collaboration with Sebha University, welcomes article submissions in both Arabic and English. For articles submitted in English, both American and British usage is accepted. To ensure consistent scientific Arabic and English, authors considering language editing services may find this beneficial. Manuscripts can be submitted as full research papers, short communications, or review articles. For regular papers, a length of eight printed pages or fewer is recommended. Reports and review articles should not exceed six printed pages, including spaces, references, figures, and tables. Typically, an eight-page paper is under 40,000 characters along with two figures or tables, if each figure or table is less than one-fourth of a page.

Before You Start

Authors should ensure:

  • A corresponding author is designated, providing contact details including an email address and full postal address.
  • All necessary files are uploaded, including:
    • Manuscript with keywords, figures, and tables.
    • Graphical Abstracts / Highlights files (if applicable).
    • Supplementary files (if applicable).

Further Considerations

  • Manuscripts have been spell-checked and grammar-checked.
  • References are consistent between the Reference List and the text.
  • Permission is obtained for copyrighted material usage.
  • Journal policies outlined in the guide are reviewed.
  • Articles submitted to JOHS can be withdrawn by authors or the publisher. However, withdrawal requires a notification letter from the chief editor.


Upon article acceptance, authors will complete a License Agreement granting exclusive rights in their open-access articles to JOHS. Authors retain rights to their research data and can reuse and share their work for scholarly purposes, with proper attribution and credit.

After publication:

  • The corresponding author is the point for queries about the published paper.
  • The responsibility on the paper for all authors
  • Authors of published material have a responsibility to inform the journal immediately if they become aware of any aspects that require correction.
  • There is no possible for any changes to the author list or add new one without submitted an approved letter by every author to editor with the deletion or addition of authors.
  • The affiliation for each author should be on paper the institution and there is no way to change it after published

Key Terms

  • Ethics of Scientific Publications: Rules governing interactions between authors, reviewers, editors, publishers, and readers in scientific publications.
  • Editor-in-Chief: Responsible for deciding on publication.
  • Author: Participant in the scientific research publication.
  • Reviewer: Expert representing Sebha University Journal for paper publication decisions.
  • Editorial: Editor, editorial board, technical editors.
  • Publisher: Sebha University.

How to Submit

Sebha University authors can submit their articles using the journal's online submission system, which guides them through entering article details and uploading files.

Use of Word Software

Files should be saved in the native format of the word processor used. The text should be in two-column format with single spacing and one-inch margins. Avoid using text justification or word hyphenation. Ensure accuracy by using spell-check and grammar-check functions.

Types of Articles considered in JOHS

JOHS accepts and publishes the following types of articles: Original Research, Review Articles, Short Reports or Letters, Case Studies, and Methodologies.

  1. Original Research: These are comprehensive reports of research data, including Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion sections.
  2. Short Reports or Letters: These are concise reports of original research data, suitable for quick communication.
  3. Review Articles: These provide comprehensive summaries of research on specific topics and times, citing around 100 primary research articles.
  4. Case Studies: These report specific instances of interesting phenomena.
  5. Methodologies or Methods: These articles present new experimental methods, tests, or procedures, either entirely new or improved versions of existing methods.

Manuscript Organization

  1. Format the Word file for standard A4 paper.
  2. Maintain single spacing and 12-point Times New Roman font size.
  3. Organize the manuscript with sections in the following order: a. Title, authors, and affiliations, b. Abstract c. Introduction d. Materials and methods e. Results f. Discussion g. References h. Footnotes


Craft a concise, informative title that conveys essential points clearly, avoiding abbreviations and formulas where possible.

Author Names and Affiliations

Provide accurate names and affiliations, including the corresponding author's contact details.


Write a brief abstract (up to 300 words) that outlines the research's purpose, principal results, and major findings.


Following the abstract, include up to 6 keywords. Avoid general terms and multiple concepts.
