Voice of Academia (VOA) is a refereed journal of UiTM Kedah which aims to inspire fellow academicians to share their ideas and expertise in the form of published writings. It is produced annually and the articles cover areas in Social Sciences, Arts and Science & Technology. The first VOA issue was published in 2007. VOA is striving towards upgrading its status. One of the means taken to achieve this is by setting the minimum academic requirement of a PhD for the content reviewers. VOA welcomes local and international academicians to be the content reviewers for the articles to be published. It is the aspiration of Voice of Academia to become a journal that is able to publish academic writings of high quality and standards. This aspiration would hopefully culminate in the reception of international recognition

  • Language
  • Please write your text in good Bahasa Malaysia or English (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of both) decimal points (not commas); use a space for thousands (10 000 and above).

  • Length of paper
  • Not exceeding 5000 words.

    Title Page
    Title page is a separated page before the text. Provide the following information on the title page (in the order given). It should include:
  • Title
  • Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.

  • Author’s names and affiliations
  • Please indicate the given name and family name clearly. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name, and, if available, the e-mail address, and telephone number of each author.

  • Corresponding author
  • Clearly indicate who is willing to handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing, publication and also post-publication. Ensure that telephone numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address.

  • Sponsoring information
  • If the research is sponsored or supported by an organization, please indicate it.

    General Rules for Text
    Please use the following rules for whole text, including abstract, keywords, heading and references.
  • Font: Times New Roman; Size: 12
  • Paragraph Spacing: Above paragraph – 0 pt; Below paragraph – 4 pt
  • Line Spacing: fixed – 12 pt
  • Heading 1: Times New Roman; Size-12; Bold; for example, 1. Introduction
  • Heading 2: Times New Roman; Size-12; Italic; for example, 1.1 Research Methods
  • Heading 3: Times New Roman; Size-12; for example, 1.1.1 Analysis Result

  • Preparation of text
  • Abstract
  • A concise and factual abstract is required (maximum length of 150 words). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separate from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. References should therefore be avoided.

  • Keywords
  • Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 8 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible.

  • Subdivision of the article
  • Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1., 2., (then 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text.' Any subsection, ideally, should not be more than 600 words. Authors are urged to write as concisely as possible, but not at the expense of clarity.

  • Figure legends, figures, schemes
  • Present these, in this order, at the end of the article. They are described in more detail below. High-resolution graphics files must always be provided separate from the main text file.

  • Tables
  • Present tables, at the end of the article. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place description to tables below the table body.

  • Formula
  • The text size of formula should be similar with normal text size.

    References (Refer APA style 6th. Edition appendix)
    Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the authors.
  • Citations in the text
  • Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Avoid citation in the abstract. Unpublished results and personal communications should not be in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication.

  • Citing and listing of web references
  • As a minimum, the full URL should be given. Any further information, if known (author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list.

  • Text
  • Citations in the text should follow the referencing style used by the American Psychological Association.
