Papers that are not prepared following author guidelines and manuscripts with a number of mistakes will have to be pre-rejected by Editor.

Article Structure

Essential title page information


The title should be accurate, unambiguous, specific, and completely identify the main issue of the paper. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. It is your first (and probably only) opportunity to attract the reader's attention. In this way, remember that the first readers are the Editor and the referees. Also, readers are the potential authors who will cite your article, so the first impression is powerful!

Indexing and abstracting services depend on the accuracy of the title, extracting from it keywords useful in cross-referencing and computer searching. An improperly titled article may never reach the audience for which it was intended, so be specific.

Author names and affiliations

Author names should not contain academic titles, official ranks, or professional positions. Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and last/family name(s) -full name if possible- of each author and check that all names are accurately spelt. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (current office) below the names. Write clearly the affiliation of all Authors. Affiliation includes the name of the department/unit, faculty (if any), university/institution, the complete postal address, and the country. The author's contribution should be shown in contribution order.

Corresponding author

Indicate the corresponding author clearly who is responsible for all stages of pre-publication, refereeing, and post-publication. This responsibility includes answering any future queries about Methodology and Materials. Ensure that the e-mail address is given and that contact details are kept up to date by the corresponding author.

Present/permanent address

If an author has moved since the work described in the article was done, or was visiting at the time, a 'Present address' (or 'Permanent address') may be indicated as a footnote to that author's name. The address at which the author did the work must be retained as the main, affiliation address. Superscript Arabic numerals are used for such footnotes.

Abstract and keywords


The Abstract should be informative and self-explanatory, clearly state the problem, the proposed approach or solution, and the research method and point out major findings and conclusions. The Abstract should be 150 to 250 words in length. The abstract should be written in the past tense. No literature should be cited. A clear abstract will strongly influence whether or not your work is further considered.


The keyword list provides the opportunity to add keywords, used by the indexing and abstracting services, in addition to those already present in the title. Judicious use of keywords may increase the ease with which interested parties can locate our article. Maximum five keywords.

Research article structure

The manuscript should begin with a title, author information, abstract, and keyword(s) followed by the main text. The main text should consist of at least an IMRaD structure, except for the review article: Introduction, Method/Material, Result and Discussion, and Conclusion; followed by acknowledgement, declarations, references and nomenclature.


The Introduction should provide a clear background, a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, the proposed approach or solution, and the new value of research which is innovation.

Material and Method

Explaining research chronologically, including research designresearch procedure (in the form of algorithms, Pseudocode or other), how to test and data acquisition. Provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced by an independent researcher. The description of the course of research should be supported by references, so the explanation can be accepted scientifically. If quoting directly from a previously published method, use quotation marks and cite the source. Any modifications to existing methods should also be described.

Results and Discussion

In this section, it is explained the results of the research and at the same time is given a comprehensive discussion. Results can be presented in figures, graphs, tables and others that make the reader understand easily. The discussion can be made in several sub-chapters.


The conclusion contains a description that should answer the objectives of the research. Provide a clear and concise conclusion. Do not repeat the Abstract or simply describe the results of the research. Give a clear explanation regarding the possible application and/or suggestions related to the research findings.
