Guidelines and Information for Authors: Preparation of Video Papers:

1. Objective of Video Papers:

Video papers should provide a visual representation of research methodologies, aiming to clarify complex procedures and enhance the understanding of the research process.

2. Video Length:

Videos should be between 10-20 minutes in length. This ensures comprehensive coverage of the methodology while maintaining viewer engagement.

3. Video Quality:

  • Resolution: Minimum of 1080p.

  • Frame Rate: 24-30 frames per second.

  • Clear audio without background noise.

4. Content Structure:

  • Introduction: Briefly introduce the research question and the significance of the methodology.

  • Materials and Equipment: Showcase all materials and equipment used, ensuring clear labeling.

  • Procedure: Step-by-step demonstration of the research method, with narration explaining each step.

  • Results (if applicable): Display any immediate results or observations.

  • Conclusion: Summarize the methodology and its implications

5. Narration:

  • Should be clear and concise.

  • Avoid jargon; if technical terms are used, provide a brief explanation.

  • Ensure synchronization between narration and video content.

6. Annotations:

  • Use text overlays or subtitles to emphasize key points or to provide additional information.

10. Review Process:

All video papers will undergo a rigorous peer review process. Reviewers will evaluate the clarity, accuracy, and relevance of the content.

11. Copyright:

By submitting to "Video Chronicles of Research Methods", authors grant the journal the right to publish and distribute the video. Authors retain copyright and can use the video for educational and non-commercial purposes.

12. Feedback and Revisions:

Post-review, authors may receive feedback and are expected to make necessary revisions before final acceptance.
