Papers of research reports and articles with scientific merit will be judged for publication under careful consideration from reviewers. Such research reports and articles include those containing substantially supported theories, innovative works, substantial experimental results and/or containing useful and constructive discussions or reviews standardized to regional or international acceptance. The editor reserves the right to recommend for revision as a condition for final acceptance.
Manuscripts are reviewed by 2-4 referees specializing in related fields. This journal has adopted a double-blind reviewing policy whereby both the referees and author(s) remain anonymous throughout the process. Therefore, the name and affiliation of the author(s) should not be included in the manuscript. After the reviewing process, suggestions and comments from the reviewers will be summarized before passing them to authors. In submitting the manuscript, the author(s) transfers the copyrights to the journal, but still accepts any legal consequence for having the paper published.
Manuscripts should be submitted as an attached word and pdf file through Science & Technology Asia Template for Author: Word file / PDF file
Manuscript Preparation Guide
Manuscript template is available upon request. The manuscript should be prepared using a text processing software such as Microsoft Word for Windows. B5 size paper is recommended. Page layout margins should be as follows:
- Top 2.0 cm.
- Bottom 2.0 cm.
- Left 1.5 cm.
- Right 1.5 cm.
There should be 2 sections. The first section is in a single column format. The second is formatted as two 6.95 cm-wide columns per page with a section separation of 0.8 cm. Title, author(s), address(es) for correspondence (indicating department, university/organization, country) and abstract should be in the first section while the remainder of the paper should appear in the second section.
1. Title should be concise, specific, and informative. It should be located in the middle of the page.
2. The abstract should summarize the manuscript contents and should contain no more than 250 words. It should be justified to both margins. The word “ABSTRACT” should be capitalized.
3. Keywords relevant to the work presented in the manuscript should be listed below the abstract. Three to five keywords should be provided.
Font, Font Size & Typeface
Times New Roman font type is recommended. Font size (in Pica) and typeface for various text functions are tabulated as follows:
+ Including “Abstract” “Acknowledgement” and “References”
++ CT = Centre text, LJ = Left Justified, LRJ = Left & right justified
Line Art Figures
Can be drawn using several packages such as Win Draw, Auto CAD®, Corel Draw®, VISIO® etc.
Original photographs should be clear with highest resolution and are appropriately inserted along the text.
Several packages can produce nice-looking and professional graph presentation. Some also provide curve-fitting functions which are quite useful.
Equations & Complex Expressions
Always take time not only in typing but to manage this task. Math CAD, Math Writer, and Equation Editor (included in Microsoft Word) are acceptable. The manuscript should also be prepared using single space typing or it can be 1 ½ spaces if the font type is Times New Roman.
Acknowledgments and References
Acknowledgments should be as brief as possible in a separate section prior to the references. References should be numbered sequentially and these numbers should appear in brackets throughout the text. Vancouver style is used for reference.
