Manuscript Preparation Guidelines for the Papers Submitted to IJIED

(Times New Roman # 16)

Authors’ names and affiliations

            Full names and affiliations (marked with superscript number) should be provided for all authors on the cover page, separately from the content.  The corresponding author (marked with superscript asterisk) should also provide a full postal address, telephone and fax number and an e-mail address as a footnote on the title page.


Abstract (Times New Roman # 14)

            Your manuscript will appear in A4 sized photocopy exactly the same as it is received. For the blind review process, please include the author’s names in the submitted manuscript.  Please follow the guidelines explicitly. English papers should begin with the English abstracts with front Times New Roman # 12. No other language abstract is required. The abstract should include a concise statement of objectives and a summary of important results. A good abstract should have only one paragraph, typed in single column. Moreover, it must be placed and fitted in the first page of a manuscript.


Key words:    Time New Roman 12 pt, Maximum 5 keywords



1. Introduction (Times New Roman # 14, Bold)

            Contributed papers are limited to 6-10 pages including all figures and tables. Each manuscript typically contains the following sections: Title, Author’s name (no any academic position is required.), E-mail address, Abstract, Introduction, Text, Conclusion, Acknowledgment (if preferred), and References. (Times New Roman # 12)

2. Style and Format

      2.1 General

            Manuscripts are typed single space except for headings. Font type should mimic Times New Roman #12 (shown here). Full justification is recommended. Please do not use any endnotes or footnotes. A page numbers is prohibited.

            Type your manuscripts on A4 (21 cm x 29.7 cm) sheets. The manuscripts must also be typed in the correct two-column width as shown in this paper. The sheet should be divided into a two-column width of 81 mm with a space between columns of 6 mm (a total width of 168 mm). This permits side margin of 21 mm each. The top and bottom margins should be 29 mm.

      2.2 Title Block

            The title should appear in upper and lower case without underlining, centered across columns. Type the author’s name and affiliation also in upper and lower case letters centered under the title. In case of multi-authorship, group the authors and identify each author by superscript numbers corresponding to the organization which should be grouped below authors. The asterisk should be marked as the superscript after a corresponding author’s name, while the presenter’s name should be underlined.

      2.3 Headings and Subheadings

            Headings and subheadings are in upper and lower case bold letter without underlining, if applicable. They should be typed in Time New Roman size 12, bold. They should appear with sequential numbers, left-hand justified in the column. A blank line should be used to separate paragraphs when each section is finished.

       2.4 Equations

            Equations are to be numbered consecutively throughout the text. The equation number should be placed in parenthesis and flushed with the right-hand margin of the column. Italic alphabets are recommended for equation parameters.


                                                            A+b-c                                                        (1)


Leave a blank line before and after equations. A long equation should appear across the columns by interrupting the opposite column with column-termination and column-initiation bars.

      2.5 Citations

            Citations within the text must be based on APA style. For example;
