Guide for Authors

Fullpaper Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted to journal’s online submission system by the corresponding author. All submissions should include following documents:

  • Title page with author names, titles, addresses and contact information (in Word format).
  • Manuscript (in Word format version 2003 or above). All author names, titles and affiliations should be excluded.


Papers should be written with fluent English without any grammatical and typographical errors. Manuscripts with any of those errors will be rejected and sent to the authors for corrections before submission and review.

Manuscripts should be typed using Times New Roman font 10 pt. with numbered lines, in the left-hand margin and double spacing throughout, i.e. also for abstracts, footnotes and references. The pages of the manuscript, including the title page, abstract, references, tables, etc. should be numbered consecutively. Make the width at 3 cm for all margins. Place tables and figures with captions in the text. Each figure and table should be referred to in the text. Avoid excessive use of italics to emphasize part of the text.

Manuscripts should include the following sections; Title (short, specific and informative), Keywords (indexing terms, up to 6 items),







Figures and Tables with captions not exceeding 10 pages (with references).

All headings and titles should be written in Bold in article.


Acknowledgements should be a brief statement at the end of the text and may include source of financial support. The contract number should be provided.


Cite references in the text as author‘s family name should be followed by the year of the publication in parentheses (Peter, 2010; Basunia and Abe, 2001). Use et al after the first author’s family name for citations with three or more authors (Lawrence et al., 2001).

For citations of the same authors published on the same year, use letters after the year (Dawson, 2009a). References cited in the text should be arranged chronologically. The references should be listed alphabetically on author’s surnames, and chronological per author. Names of journals should be in full titles rather than the abbreviations. Avoid using citations of abstract proceedings. The following examples are for guidance.

Tables and Figures

Tables and Figures should be numbered consecutively and accompanied by a title at the top. All tables and figures should not exceed 16×20 cm size. Figures should have high resolution, minimum 600 dpi in jpg format. For publication purposes use grayscale images.

Avoid using vertical lines in tables.


Do not use figures that duplicate matter in tables. Figures can be supplied in digital format, or photographs and drawings, which can be suitable for reproduction. Label each figure with figure number consecutively.


Units of measurement should all be in SI units. Use a period in decimal fractions (1.24 rather than 1,24). Avoid using “/”. Include a space between the units (m s-1 rather than m/s,J s-1 rather than J/s, kg m s −2 rather thankg m/s2). Units should have a single space between the number and the unit (4 kg N ha-1, 3 kg m −1 s−2, 20 N m, 1000 s−1, 100 kPa, 22 °C). The only exceptions are for angular definitions, minutes, seconds and percentage; do not include a space (10°, 45›, 60», 29%). The abbreviation of liter is “L”.

Formulas and Equations

Number each formula with the reference number placed in parentheses at the end. Use Word mathematical processor for formulas with 12pt., variances in Italics, numbers and mathematical definitions in plain text. If needed, refer as “Equation 1” in the text (….the model, as given in Equation 1).

Abstract Writing Rules
