Author’s Guide

This Guide has been prepared to provide authors assistance in the preparation of their manuscripts. For a detailed discussion of the major aspects of manuscript preparation, authors are referred to a manuscript template available in website. The author can also dowload the formatted template by clicking the below link.

Manuscript Preparation(in Microsoft Office Word)

1.Plain text on single pages, left alignment, NO columns in any kind.

2.Write Text in 10 pt size, Times New Roman, single space, no automatic or forced hyphenations.

3.Titles and sub-titles can be in bold.

4.Page margins 1 inch (preferably on letter size 08 x 11 inch), NO headers, footers, etc.

5.Place Tables and Figures on the last pages of your manuscript (not inserted with the text). Tables and Figures (colored or black and white) must open in Microsoft Word. 


The Title should be brief, specific and informative. Title should be crafted with a view to specific key words that would assist in computer literature retrieval.


Include the first name, middle initial and last name of each author. Do not include professional or official titles. Give the complete mailing address (including e-mail address, if available) of where the research was performed. If the current address of a given author is different from that of the main address, include the address as a footnote. For papers with more than one author, please designate the corresponding author to whom inquiries should be addressed.


An abstract, of 100-150 words, should be the first section after the headings in each submitted manuscript. The Abstract should contain a brief summary of the purpose, experimental methods, new results and conclusions.


All the manuscript should contain (4-6 keywords), seperated by semicolon.  


Assume your readers to be reasonably knowledgeable but not expert in your particular field. Long historical reviews are not necessary, but sufficient referenced documentation and background material should be included so that the reader can access key previously published work. It is helpful to divide the paper into sections with appropriate section headings, but avoid too many subsections and sub-subsections. Sectionalization should be only to the extent needed to make the paper well organized without affecting the smooth continuity of the text. Keep all material relevant to a given section within that section. The use of footnotes should be minimized; if necessary, they should be numbered as references.


Every manuscript must have a concise introduction clearly stating the purpose of the work. Put your work in the context of previous work with adequate references to the primary literature and especially good reviews where available. It is not necessary to cover references already cited in reviews unless they are key to the work.

Experimental and Methods

Describe your novelty work in sufficient detail to allow an experienced researcher to repeat the method; however, details of commonly used procedures in the field should not be included. A brief summary of published procedures will be sufficient.

Results and Discussion

Use tables and figures wherever possible with a clear but concise explanation of the results. Avoid long convoluted discussions.

References and Notes

References and notes should be numbered sequentially and marked with numbers in brackets [e.g. Jones et al. (45) showed that…]. References and notes should be listed at the end of the text in numerical order with the numbers in brackets. The accuracy of the references is the responsibility of the authors. “Anonymous” is not acceptable for authorship. If the author(s) are unknown, list the reference by company, agency, Journal source or publisher. It is a good idea to look up the references in the library from the penultimate draft of the manuscript to detect transcription errors. References should adhere to the formats below, using abbreviations for the titles of periodicals as recommended in the Chemical Abstracts Service Source Index, 1907-89:

Articles in Journals

(14) Ho, K. H., & Newman, S. T. State of the art electrical discharge machining (EDM). International Journal of Machine Tools and Manufacture, 2003, 43(13), 1287-1300.

Chapters in Books

Manuscript Requirements

Text should be prepared with single spacing, in Times New Roman font, size 10pt, and on 8 ? ?11″ paper. Tables and figures should be placed after a list of the Figure Captions, which should follow the References.

– If certain key references are unpublished, provide enough information to aid reviewers in assessing the relevance of the cited material to the manuscript. – Tables should be numbered and titled appropriately. Prepare tables in a consistent style with single spacing and wide margins, each on a separate page. – Figures of quality (colored (300dpi) or black and white (600dpi)) should be numbered properly. Since figures will be reduced when published, lettering should be large and clear. Mark the figure number at the lower left-hand corner in small characters. Collect all captions and legends on a separate “Figure Captions” page.


Authors are encouraged to use the style recommended by IUPAC or the Chemical Abstracts Service.

Formulas and Equations

Balanced chemical equations should be numbered along with mathematical equations. Authors should keep mathematical sections short and avoid long derivations.


Credits to granting agencies and individuals should be placed in an “acknowledgment” section at the end of the text.

Electronic Manuscripts

Manuscripts should be prepared using “Microsoft Word” (text and figures). Authors are encouraged to submit online only, through  Submit your cover letter including names of 4 potential reviewers and their contact information (including e-mails). When preparing the manuscript, use the document mode (or equivalent). DO NOT right justify the text and DO NOT include any page formatting instructions or columns. Make sure that references adhere to the required format for publication. Make sure that there is no confusion between 1 (one) and l (el), 0 (zero) and O (oh), x (ex) and ?(times sign). Carefully check the final manuscript for correct spelling and consistent style and notation. Remember that errors in the manuscript will be translated faithfully to the typeset copy. Check the file with a virus detection program. All of the text, figures and tables (if any) should be contained in single docx file. Kindly don’t submit your manuscript in pdf format.  The Editor has the right to adjust the final version to fit the Journal style, and assumes no responsibility for any unintentional mistake.


Manuscript will be edited according to the style of this Journal and one set of proofs will be sent to the author to be checked for printer’s errors. Corrections must be restricted to instances in which the proof is at variance with the manuscript.
