Recommended Published Page Counts (700 words* per published page)

  • Regular/Full Articles 7 – 12 pages; 5,000 – 8,500 words
  • Technical/Engineering Notes 1 – 3 pages; 1000 – 2500 words
  • Review Papers 12 – 15 pages; 8,500 – 11,000 words

*Or equivalent space for figures/tables

Calculating Manuscript Word Counts

MS Word: Take the software-generated word count for the text; add in word counts for the equivalent space taken up by tables and figures, roughly calculating the equivalent space as follows:

  • Standard, single-column figure or table is equivalent to 100 words
  • Standard (half page), two-column figure or table is equivalent to 350 words
  • Large (full page), two-column table is equivalent to 700 words

2. Title- Type your title Arial, 14, boldface, para 1.5, 6 spacing before and after. Select your title as short as possible, with no abbreviations or acronyms, limited to 200 characters. 

3. Length of Abstract- For the journal, the length of the abstract is limited to 150 to 200 words. It should be Times New Roman, 10 regular fonts. A good abstract should carry the answer to the following questions: (i) Why did you decide to do this study or work? (ii) How did you conduct the research? (iii) What did you find? (iv) Why is this research and your finding important? (v) Why should someone read your entire essay?

4.  Keywords- Select 5 to 6 words or phrase, Times new roman, 10 regular sizes separated by a semicolon, e.g., Keyword1; Keyword2; ......... Keyword6.

5. Literature- Type your literature in Times new roman, 11, regular font style. In the paragraph section, select spacing 6 before and after, and line spacing is ‘single’.  For the reference inside literature or body of the manuscript uses the APA 6th edition style as indicated: (Author, 20xx; Author (20xx)) or in the case of two authors, (Author1 & Author2, 20xx; Author1 and Author2 (20xx)), or in case of three or more authors (Author1 et al., 20xx; Author1 et al. (20xx)).

6.  Sections- Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering).

7.  Math and equations- Use the equation editor to create the equation. Number equations consecutively with equation numbers in parentheses flush with the right margin, as in (1).

8.  Units - Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI).

9. Figures and Tables -All illustrations, diagrams, or photographs, appear in color online and will be in black and white in the printed version. If the quality of the color figure supplied is not suitable to be produced in color, the author will be responsible. Figures should ideally be black and white, not color, and numbered sequentially. However, if color is essential to the figure please send or place a good quality color image. For Tables, do not appear the vertical lines. The heading of the Table (Times new roman, 11 font size, regular, numeric order) is placed before the table starts. When referencing your figures and tables within your paper, use the abbreviation “Fig.” even at the beginning of a sentence. Do not abbreviate “Table.” Tables should be numbered with Roman Numerals.

10. ConclusionThe conclusion to a journal article is very important. It’s pretty important to get clear about the work that the conclusion must accomplish. The formatting style is like the body of the manuscript.  Do not replicate the abstract as the conclusion.

11. References- APA 6th edition should follow for referencing.
