The JARAHE style is based on the style guidelines of the American Psychological Association.
- Use 11-pt type and double space everything: title page, text, headings, & references.
- Use left justification in the text (i.e., the right edge is ragged).
- Number pages, beginning with the title page, in the upper-right-hand corner.
- Titles should be 10-12 words, abstracts 250 words or less. On the title page, include a running head of less than 50 characters and spaces.
- Include any acknowledgement notes on the title page. Include complete contact information (i.e., address, phone, fax, e-mail) for all authors; for the publisher, not for publication.
- Following the abstract, identify up to five key words by which the article may be indexed. Key words should be in alphabetical order.
- Begin the reference list on a new page. Double space all end references. Each new entry begins flush left; set subsequent lines with hanging indents.
- Alphabetize entries in the same manner as within-text citations (above).
- The reference list includes all references and only references cited in the text.
- Entries with multiple authors should include the names of all authors in the reference list.
- Use authors’ last names and first and second initials (Gutman, A. S., & Smith, R. T.). Initials appear before surnames only for editors (e.g., A. S. Gutman).
- Italicize book titles, journal names, and volume numbers. Page numbers are required for book chapters.
