This policy describes guidelines in the publication process of our journals. Specifically, Journal Issues adopts and strives to adhere to the following standards and requirements: COPE – Committee on Publication Ethics.
An author is an individual who has significantly contributed to the development of a manuscript. The WJR recommends that authorship be based on the following four criteria:
- Substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data for the work; and
b. Drafting the work or revising it critically for important intellectual content, and
c. Final approval of the version to be published; and
d. Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.
Individuals who participated in the development of a manuscript but do not qualify as an author should be acknowledged. Organizations that provided support in terms of funding and/or other resources should also be acknowledged.
Changes in authorship
Whenever there is a need to make changes in the authorship of a manuscript or a published article, the changes will be implemented according to COPE specification. Only corresponding authors can make a request for a change in authorship. The request should be made to the editor using the Changes in Authorship Form or via e-mail from the corresponding author's email address.
Submission of Manuscript
Authors should read the “Authors Guidelines” on the journal’s page before making a submission. The manuscript should be prepared according to the style and specifications of the journal’s policy. The authors listed on the manuscript should have met the requirements for Authorship specified above. Where possible, specify the contribution of each of the authors.
All authors should approve the final version of the manuscript prior to submission. Once a manuscript is submitted, it is therefore assumed that all authors have read and given their approval for the submission of the manuscript. Contact information of all authors should be stated in the manuscript. Surname/Other names, affiliation, emails, and phone/fax numbers.
Declaration of Conflicts of Interest should be stated in the manuscript.
Conflict of interest
“Conflict of interest (COI) exists when there is a divergence between an individual’s private interests (competing interests) and his or her responsibilities to scientific and publishing activities such that a reasonable observer might wonder if the individual’s behavior or judgment was motivated by considerations of his or her competing interests” WAME4.
The authors should disclose all financial/relevant interests that may have influenced the development of the manuscript.

The study was conducted to find out the basic understanding and performance on fractions of selected Grade 6 students at Carranglan Central School, School Year 2018-2019. The respondents of the study were 15 selected students from the first section of Grade 6 classes of Carranglan Central School, SY:2018-2019. Inventory Guide on Basic Understanding on Fractions and Achievement Test were used to obtain data. This study used descriptive research design. Quantitative approach was used to establish the respondents’ basic understanding on fractions and their performance on five subconstructs of fraction. The descriptive part explained the findings from the quantitative phase. Nonparametric test using Chi-Square was used to determine relationship between respondents’ basic understanding on fractions and their performance on five subconstructs of fraction.
Results revealed that high and average achieving respondents agreed that they have basic background on fractions, while low achieving students were undecided. Results of the study revealed that respondents (high, average and low achievers) were all successful and competent on part whole subconstruct. Further, high achieving students were all good on other subconstructs such as ratio, operator, quotient and measure, while average achievers were also competent but not as successful as the high achievers. Furthermore, low achievers found hard to perform on ratio, operator, quotient and measure subconstruct. Results showed that only high achieving respondents had significant relationship based on their basic understanding on fractions and performance on five subconstructs of fractions.
