You may use MS Word template to prepare your manuscript (download paper-template.rtf).

  • The manuscripts must be written in English.
  • The papers should be in a 2-column format (except for title, author list and author's affiliation), and the final publication will be A4 size (210_297 mm). The print area is 160_240 mm. The margins for A4 paper size are 25 mm (top, left, right) and 32 mm (bottom). The columns are 77.5 mm wide with a gap of 5 mm between the columns.
  • The manuscript should be typed single spaced using Times New Roman font.
  • The title is centered, 16 pt, with each initial letter capitalized.
  • The list of authors is centered, 12 pt. The presenting author's name should be underlined.
  • Affiliations (organization name, street address, city, ZIP code, country) are centered, italic, 10 pt. Please include phone and fax number, and the e-mail address for the presenting author.
  • Use one blank line between the title and the authors list, between the author list and the author's affiliation, and two blank lines between the affiliations and the main text.
  • The abstract should be limited to 200 words and should concisely state what was done, how it was done, principal results, and their significance. Use Times New Roman, Bold, 10 pt, single spaced.
  • The main text and references are fully justified (aligned left and right), 10 pt. Do not put a blank between the paragraphs. The first paragraph in the section does not have an indent. The following paragraphs have 5 mm indent.
  • The section headings are left aligned, 10 pt, bold. The sections should be enumerated. Please do not use sub-sections.
  • Do not use colors in the figures. Convert all figures in gray-scale.
  • Preferably, a figure should fit one column width. If a figure is two-column wide, try to place the figure at the top or at the bottom of the page.
  • Number figures in order of their appearance in the text and make sure that every figure is cited. Every figure must have a caption that is complete and intelligible in itself without reference to the text. Each caption should be typed as one paragraph beginning with the figure number in the form:
    Fig. 1. Use 10-pt size font.
  • Leave one blank line between the figure caption and the following paragraph.
  • The tables should fit one or two column width. In the latter case, try to put the table at the top or at the bottom of the page.
  • Number tables in order of their appearance in the text and make sure that every table is cited. Give every table a caption that is complete and intelligible in itself without reference to the text. Every column in a table should have a heading.
  • Use Microsoft Word equation editor to insert formulas in the text of your manuscript. Center the equations. Number each equation in order on the right hand side of the page in parentheses-for example, (1).
  • A numbered list of references must be provided at the end of the paper. The list should be arranged in the order of citation in the text, not in alphabetical order. List only one reference per reference number. Each reference number should be enclosed by square brackets [1]. Recommended forms of references are as follows.
