 Keywords (9 Bold)  About five key words in alphabetical order, separated by comma (9 Italic)

Introduction (10 Bold)

The introduction of the paper should explain the nature of the problem, previous work, purpose, and the contribution of the paper. The contents of each section may be provided to understand easily about the paper.   Highlight a section that you want to designate with a certain style, and then select the appropriate name on the style menu. The style will adjust your fonts and line spacing. Do not change the font sizes or line spacing to squeeze more text into a limited number of pages. Use italics for emphasis; do not underline. (10)

II.  Headings (10 Bold)

The headings and subheadings start with “1. Introduction“, appears in upper and lower case letters and should be set in bold and aligned flush left. All headings from the Introduction to Acknowledgements are numbered sequentially using 1, 2, 3, etc. Subheadings are numbered 1.1, 1.2, etc. If a subsection must be further divided, the numbers should be written 1.1.1, 1.1.2, etc. The font size for heading is 10 points bold face and subsections with 10 points and not bold. Do not underline any of the headings, or add dashes, colons, etc. (10)

III. Equations (10 Bold)

A colon is inserted before an equation is presented, but there is no punctuation following the equation. All equations are numbered and referred to in the text solely by a number enclosed in the round bracket (i.e., (3) reads as “equation 3”) flush in the right margin as shown below. Ensure that any miscellaneous numbering system you use in your paper   cannot be confused with a reference [4] or an equation (3) designation. (10)

Be sure that the symbols in your equation are defined immediately after each equation.

IV. Figures and Tables (10 Bold)

Every figure should have a caption. All photographs, schemas, graphs and diagrams are to be referred to as figures. Line drawings should be good quality scans or true electronic output. Low-quality scans are not acceptable. Figures must be embedded into the text and not supplied separately. In MS word input the figures must be properly coded. Preferred format of figures is PNG, JPEG, GIF etc. Lettering and symbols should be clearly defined either in the caption or in a legend provided as part of the figure.

Figure captions appear below the figure, are flush left, and are in lower case letters. When referring to a figure in the body of the text, the abbreviation “Fig.” is used. Figures should be numbered in the order they appear in the text.

Table captions appear centered above the table in upper and lower case letters. When referring to a table in the text, no abbreviation is used and “Table” is capitalized. (10)

V.    Publication Principles (10 Bold)

No. of Pages 10 including reference and appendix

The contents of the paper are peer-reviewed. Authors should consider the following points:

Technical papers submitted for publication must advance the state of knowledge and must cite relevant  prior work.

The length of a submitted paper should commensurate with the importance, or be appropriate to the complexity, of the work. For example, an obvious extension of previously published work might not be appropriate for publication or might be adequately treated in just a few pages.

Authors must convince both peer reviewers and the editors of the scientific and technical merit of a paper; the standards of proof are higher when extraordinary or unexpected results are reported.

Because replication is required for scientific progress, papers submitted for publication must provide sufficient information to allow readers to perform similar experiments or calculations and use the reported results. Although not everything need be disclosed, a paper must contain new, useable, and fully described information. For example, a specimen’s chemical composition need not be reported if the main purpose of a paper is to introduce a new measurement technique. Authors should expect to be challenged by reviewers if the results are not supported by adequate data and critical details.

VI. Conclusion (10 Bold)

A conclusion section must be included and should indicate clearly the advantages, limitations, and possible applications of the paper.  Although a conclusion may review the main points of the paper, do not replicate the abstract as the conclusion. A conclusion might elaborate on the importance of the work or suggest applications and extensions. (10)

 Appendix (10 Bold)

Appendixes, if needed, appear before the acknowledgment.

 Acknowledgements(10 Bold) 

An acknowledgement section may be presented after the conclusion, if desired.

References (10 Bold)

Use APA format
