Author Guidelines


    Misan Journal of Engineering Sciences aims to provide a forum for a broad blend of scientific and technical papers to reflect the evolving needs of engineers. Mainly welcome are contributions dealing with all applications of engineering principles and theories in all specific aspects of engineering science. Articles of an interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome. The primary goal of the new editors is to maintain high-quality of publications. There will be a commitment to expediting the time taken for the publication of the papers. The articles that are sent for reviews will have the names of the authors deleted with a view towards enhancing the objectivity and fairness of the review process.

The submitted papers undergo plagiarism, a double-blind peer review by professionals in the paper specific specialty. This process is accomplished according to the Journal criteria of evaluation, where the manuscript, contents, and organization of the paper are to be checked. The papers will be available online for the readers. 


The scope of the journal includes a broad range of areas in the disciplines of engineering and technology and their related topics. Misan Journal of  Engineering Science tries to confirm on publishing of high-quality papers with an acceptable, professional, and considerable background.

1. Submission of the paper


As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors who do not adhere to these guidelines.

- Please read the Author Guide before you submit a manuscript.

- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).

- The submission file is in Microsoft Word file format. Also, you can see the Guide A.

- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guide.

- Add DOIs and persistent links to those references that have DOIs, please see the Author Guide.

- Copyrights for articles published in this journal are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. It is the author's responsibility to bring an infringement action if so desired by the author.


2. Preparation of the manuscript


General: The manuscripts should be in English and typed with single column and single line spacing on a single side of A4 paper. The submitted papers will be published in the category of regular technical papers only. The first page of a paper should contain: (1) a title of the paper which well reflects the contents of the paper (Arial, 16pt), (2) all the name(s) and affiliations(s) of authors(s) (Arial, 12pt), (3) an abstract of 100~250 words (Times New Roman, 11pt), (4) 4-6 keywords following the abstract, and (5) footnote (personal title and e-mail address of the corresponding author (required) and other authors' (not mandatory)). The paper should be concluded with proper conclusions which reflect the findings in the paper. The length of paper is NOT within the range of 8-16 journal pages for a single column. Please refer to the Authors’ Guide and the Template for the format of the paper:

Tables and figures: Tables and figures should be consecutively numbered and have short titles. They should be referred to in the text as following examples (e.g., Fig. 1(a), Figs. 1 and 2, Figs. 1(a)-(d) / Table 1, Tables 1-2, etc). Tables should have borders (1/2pt plane line) with the captions right before the table. Figures should be properly located in the text as an editable image file (.jpg) with captions on the lower cell. All of the original figures and tables are required to be placed at a suitable location in the text. It is recommended that a figure or a table does not occupy both columns whenever possible.

Units and mathematical expressions: It is desirable that units of measurements and abbreviations should follow The International System of Units (SI) except where the other unit system is more suitable. The numbers identifying the displayed mathematical expression should be placed in the parentheses and referred to in the text as following examples (e.g., Eq. (1), Eqs. (1)-(2)). Mathematical expressions must be inserted as an object (set as Microsoft Equations 3.0) for Microsoft Word 2007 and later versions. Image-copied text or equations are not acceptable unless they are editable. The raised and lowered fonts cannot be used for superscription and subscription.

References: A list of references that reflect the current state of technology in the field is located after the conclusions of the paper. For details to prepare the list of references and cite them in the text, authors are advised to follow the introductions and the sample list in the Authors’ Guide / Authors’ Guide(A).


3. Review

4. Proofs


Proofs will be sent to the corresponding author to correct any typesetting errors. Alterations to the original manuscript will not be accepted at this stage. Proofs should be returned within 48 hours of receipt.


5. Copyright


Submission of an article to the Techno-Press Journal implies that it presents the original and unpublished work, and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
