Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in Microsoft Word, or PDF file format.
  • The text is double-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

General Format 

Paper format: standard A4 size (21 cm x 29.7 cm); All margins should be 2.5 cm;

Text font and size: Times New Roman 12 point, double line space; alignment: Justified. Each page and line of the manuscript should be numbered.

Organization Manuscript

The content should include following major sections: ‘Abstract’, ‘Introduction’, ‘Experimental’, ‘Results and Discussions’, ‘Conclusions’ and ‘Acknowledgements’ (if any). References, tables and figures are to be provided separately after the text.

1 An abstract for a paper / review article is to be provided at the beginning which should be brief indicating scope of the work and principal findings. It should not normally exceed 200 words, and should be followed by 4 to 5 keywords.

2 Introduction, including a review of the literature, should not exceed what is necessary to indicate the reason for taking up the work and the essential background.

3 Description of techniques and equipment should generally be included in short in the Experimental section of the paper.

4 If possible, Results and Discussion may not be intermingled; the discussion should be restricted to logical interpretation as a basis for conclusions supported by the results. Information density must be high, and verbose and roundabout expressions should be avoided.

5 References: The author is responsible for accuracy. Literature reference should be in separate sheets at the end of the paper in the order in which they appear and are numbered in the text. The reference numbers should be cited as superscripts in the text.

Each reference should give the following information in the sequence set out below:
