The manuscript is written in A4 paper size with a minimum page size of 6 pages, maximum of 15 pages, including tables and drawings, and with reference to the writing procedure as set forth in this paper
Written using Times New Roman 15 Font (Max 12 words). This is your opportunity to attract the reader’s attention. Remember that readers are the potential authors who will cite your article. Identify the main issue of the paper within the title. Begin with the subject or highlight the idea of the paper. The title should be accurate, unambiguous, specific, and complete. Do not contain infrequently-used abbreviations.
The title of the paper should be in 15 pt Times New Roman and be centered. The title should have 15 pts space above and 15 pts below.
Authors Name and Affiliations
Write Author(s) names without a title and professional positions, such as: Prof, Dr, Production Manager, etc. Do not abbreviate your last/family name. Always give your First and Last names (should be at least 2 (two) words). Write a clear affiliation of all Authors. Affiliation includes the name of department/unit, (faculty), the name of the university, country. Please indicate Corresponding Author (include email address) by adding an asterisk (*) in superscript behind the name. Author names should be in 10 pt Times Roman.
Abstract and keywords :
The abstract should briefly summarize the scope, objectives, methods, data, results and conclusions of the paper. The abstract is to be in fully-justified italicized text, at the top of the paper with single column as it is here, below the author information. Use the word “Abstract” as the title, in 10-point Times, boldface type, left relative to the column, initially capitalized. The abstract is to be in 10-point, single-spaced type, and up to 250 words in length. Leave two blank lines after the abstract or list three to five keywords related to the articles.
Keywords: are written in five words which should be a subset of the paper title, written in lowercase except for abbreviations, and separated by commas.
In the Introduction, the Authors should state the objectives of the work at the end of the introduction section. Before the objective, Authors should provide an adequate background (maximum 1 paragraph), and very short literatures survey/review in order to record the existing solutions/method, to show which is the best of previous researches, to show the main limitation of the previous researches, to show what do you hope to achieve (to solve the limitation), and to show the scientific merit or novelties of the paper. Avoid a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. Do not describe the literature survey/review as author by author, but should be presented as a group per method or topic reviewed which refers to some pieces of literature. Before the objectives and after the literature review, the author must state the gap analysis or novelties statements to show why does this paper is important and what is a unique idea of this paper compared to other previous researchers' suggestions.
The content of the introduction is the answer to the question [3-7]: (1). Background, (2). Brief Literature Review, (3). The reason of this study and (4). Question of purpose.
2. Research Method
Explain the method of preparation and characterization techniques used. Describe briefly, but remain accurate as size, volume, replication and workmanship techniques. For the new method should be explained in detail so that other researchers can reproduce the experiment. While the established method can be explained by quoting a reference.
Research method should make readers be able to reproduce the experiment. Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described. Do not repeat the details of established methods.
3. Results and Discussion
The results are written based on a logical order to form a story. It shows facts / data instead of discussing the results. Tables and Figures can be used but not repeating the same data in the same image, table and text. To further clarify the description, subtitles can be used.
The results should be clear and concise. The results should summarize (scientific) findings rather than providing data in great detail. Please highlight the differences between your results or findings and the previous publications by other researchers. The discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
In the discussion, it is the most important section of your article. Here you get the chance to sell your data. Make the discussion corresponding to the results, but do not reiterate the results. Often should begin with a brief summary of the main scientific findings (not experimental results).
The following components should be covered in discussion:
- How do your results relate to the original question or objectives outlined in the Introduction section? What is your finding of research? (what/how)?
- Do you provide interpretation scientifically for each of your results or findings presented? This scientific interpretation must be supported by valid analysis and characterization (why)?
- Are your results consistent with what other investigators have reported (what else)? Or are there any differences?
Discussion is the basic explanation, relationship and generalization shown by the results. The description answers the research questions. If there are dubious results, then show them objectively.
In conclusion there should be no reference. The conclusion contains the facts obtained. State the application possibilities, implications and speculations as appropriate. If necessary, give suggestions for further research. Conclusions should only answer the objectives of the research. Tells how your work advances the field from the present state of knowledge. Without clear Conclusions, reviewers and readers will find it difficult to judge the work, and whether or not it merits publication in the journal. Do not repeat the Abstract, or just list experimental results. Provide a clear scientific justification for your work, and indicate possible applications and extensions. This conclusion should be provided as a paragraph. You should also suggest future experiments and/or point out those that are underway.
