Guide for Authors


  1. Articles are the author’s original work.
  2. Articles have never been published or given to other publication media.
  3. Articles have relevance to the fields of Engineering Sciences.
  4. Articles should be in the form of Research Articles.
  5. Published articles don’t always reflect the Editor’s view.


Manuscripts should be submitted in Word. Use a normal, plain font (e.g., 10-point Times Roman) for text. Use italics for emphasis. Use the automatic page numbering function to number the pages. Do not use field functions. Use tab stops or other commands for indents, not the space bar. Use the table function, not spreadsheets, to make tables. Use the equation editor or MathType for equations. Save your file in docx format (Word 2007 or higher) or doc format (older Word versions). Please use the decimal system of headings with no more than three levels. Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter. Please use the standard mathematical notation for formulae, symbols etc.: Italic for single letters that denote mathematical constants, variables, and unknown quantities. Roman/upright for numerals, operators, and punctuation, and commonly defined functions or abbreviations, e.g., cos, det, e or exp, lim, log, max, min, sin, tan, d (for derivative). Bold for vectors, tensors, and matrices.

Please use this template title page for providing the following information. The title page should include The name(s) of the author(s), A concise and informative title, The affiliation(s) of the author(s), i.e. institution, (department), city, (state), and country. A clear indication and an active e-mail address of the corresponding author, If available, the ORCID of the author(s). 


  1. The abstract must be consisting of a brief description of the purpose of study; experimental treatments used;
    results obtained, preferably with quantitative data; the significance of findings; conclusions; implications of results if appropriate.
  2. The abstract is written using Times New Roman, size 10pt.
  3. The abstract must be written in one paragraph consisting of 150 to 250 words. 


    1. Keywords are written below the abstracts.
    2. Keywords consist of at least 3 words and a maximum of 6 words.
    3. The word "Keywords" must be written in bold.

State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
Material and methods
provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced by an independent researcher. Methods that are already published should be summarized, and indicated by a reference. If quoting directly from a previously published method, use quotation marks and also cite the source. Any modifications to existing methods should also be described. 

Tables and Figure

Please submit tables and figures as editable text and not as images.
Tables can be placed to the relevant text in the article.
Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body.
Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Please avoid using vertical rules and shading in table cells. 

The results must be presented in order of their significance. Results should be given in logical sequence in the text, tables, and figures. Only the most important findings should be summarized. Results for all the outcomes identified in the Methods Section should be given. Tables and Figures should be provided if they are essential to explain the results/to assess supporting data. Tables with too many entries can alternatively be represented by a graph.

This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature. Combined 'Results and Discussion' sections are only acceptable for 'Short Communications', except under compelling circumstances.

The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section. 


    1. References are written and sorted alphabetically by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers).
    2. All publications cited in the text should be presented in a list of references following the text of the manuscript.
    3. The manuscript should be carefully checked to ensure that the spelling of the author's names and dates are exactly the same in the text as in the reference list.
    4. The references list only consists of references that are cited in the article.
    5. The reference list wrote in a hanging format.
    6. The accuracy of the references is the responsibility of the author(s).

• In-text citation:  

Reference citations in the text should be identified by numbers in square brackets. Some examples:

1. Negotiation research spans many disciplines [1].

2. This result was later contradicted by Becker and Seligman [2].

3. This effect has been widely studied [1-3, 7].

• In-References list:
