Preparing your scientific article type

Divide your article into clearly defined sections.

Follow this general outline when writing manuscripts:

1- Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords.

2- Introduction, Experimental, Results, Discussion, Conclusion.

3- Acknowledgments, Appendixes, References, Arabic abstract (if possible ), Figure legends, Tables. The introduction should briefly describe the background and reason for doing the work described. The experimental should provide enough information for readers to repeat the experiment. The discussion should evaluate the results and their relationship to comparable works. The conclusion should briefly summarize the obtained results.


Word limits

Please include a word count for your paper. There are no word limits for articles submitted to this journal.

Style guidelines

Please write your text in good English. Authors who feel their English language manuscript may require editing to eliminate possible grammatical or spelling errors and to conform to correct scientific English may wish to use the English Language Editing service available should indicate so. Please use single quotation marks, except where 'a quotation is "within" a quotation'. Please note that long quotations should be indented without quotation marks.

Formatting and templates

Papers may be submitted in any standard format, including Word and If you are submitting in LaTeX, please convert the files to Word beforehand (you will also need to upload your LaTeX source files with the Word).figures should be saved separately from the text.


1- Title. Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.


2- Author details. Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the e-mail address of each author. 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'), this may be indicated as a footnote to that author's name. The address at which the author actually did the work must be retained as the main, affiliation address. Superscript Arabic numerals are used for such footnotes.


3- Corresponding author. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that the e-mail address is given and that contact details are kept up to date by the corresponding author.


4- Abstract. A concise and factual abstract of no more than 250 words is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results, and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.


5- Keywords (3-6). Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords,  avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.


6- Abbreviations. Define abbreviations that are not standard in this field in a footnote to be placed on the first page of the article. Such abbreviations that are unavoidable in the abstract must be defined at their first mention there, as well as in the footnote. Ensure consistency of abbreviations throughout the article.


7-Disclosure statement. This is to acknowledge any financial interest or benefit that has arisen from the direct application of your research. 


8- Figures. Figures should be of high quality (1200 dpi for line art, 600 dpi for grayscale and 300 dpi for color).


9- Tables. Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Tables can be placed either next to the relevant text in the article, or on the separate page(s) at the end. 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.


10- Equations. If you are submitting your manuscript as a Word document, please ensure that equations are editable.


11- References:

Citation in text
Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full. Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list but may be mentioned in the text. If these references are included in the reference list they should follow the standard reference style of the journal and should include a substitution of the publication date with either 'Unpublished results' or 'Personal communication'. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication.


Web references
As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed. Any further information, if known (DOI, author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list.


References in a special issue
Please ensure that the words 'this issue' are added to any references in the list (and any citations in the text) to other articles in the same Special Issue.


Reference Formatting
Authors are strongly encouraged to put the references of the submission in the correct journal reference style as this will make it easier for editors and reviewers to assess the paper. In any case, the reference style should be consistent, and where applicable, author(s) name(s), journal title/book title, chapter title/article title, year of publication, volume number/book chapter and the pagination must be present. Use of DOI is highly encouraged. The reference style used by the journal will be applied to the accepted article at the proof stage. Note that missing data will be highlighted at proof stage for the author to correct.


Reference style
Text: All citations in the text should refer to:
1. Single author: the author's name (without initials, unless there is ambiguity) and the year of publication;
2. Two authors: both authors' names and the year of publication;
3. Three or more authors: first author's name followed by 'et al.' and the year of publication.
Citations may be made directly (or parenthetically). Groups of references should be listed first alphabetically, then chronologically.
Examples: 'as demonstrated (Allan 2000a, 2000b, 1999; Allan and Jones, 1999). Kramer et al. (2010) have recently shown ....'
List: References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters 'a', 'b', 'c', etc., placed after the year of publication.
