Submitting Your Manuscript


To submit your manuscript, please visit us at ManuscriptCentral.


Important: If you need to submit a page-charge waiver, please restrict your entire manuscript word count to 4500 words and figure count to 4 figures. The journal is self-funding and regrettably cannot afford to publish long articles for free. However, excess tables, figures, and appendices can be published as online-only supplemental materials at no charge.

Papers published as part of a conference proceedings will receive free page charges for the first 8 printed pages only. Additional pages will be charged the usual fee of US $50 per page. Color figures are US $320 plus applicable VAT. We cannot publish color figures for free in the print version, but they are always free in the online version.  


We prefer submissions in Word or rich text format (RTF). LaTeX files can also be accepted. Please add line numbers to your manuscript.

Please do not number your section headings. Use ALL CAPS + BOLD for main headings (level-1), Initial Caps + Bold for subheadings (level-2), and Initial Caps + Italics + Bold  for level-3 headings.

Remember to use the proper characters for en-dashes and minus symbols; do not use a hyphen in number ranges or to indicate a negative number.  


Please follow the CSE Manual for Authors, Editors, and Publishers (8th ed.) when formatting references and in-text citations.

You can download the EndNote reference style here:

Please note, we prefer full journal titles rather than abbreviations. When listing several in-text citations in a row, put them in chronological order by publication year (not alphabetical by author): (Mazan and Hoffman 2001; Smart et al. 2003; Rapley 2010). Do not place a comma before the year in the citation: (Rapley 2010).

For articles with 2 authors, names are separated by a comma in the end reference but by “and” in the in-text reference.
