Tikrit Journal of Engineering Sciences

The Tikrit Journal of Engineering Sciences (TJES) is a peer-reviewed journal published by the College of Engineering, Tikrit University. TJES is not limited to a specific aspect of science and engineering but is instead devoted to a wide range of subfields in the engineering sciences. While it encourages a broad spectrum of contribution in the engineering sciences, its core interest lies in issues concerning material modeling and response. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome.

In addition to the Engineering disciplines of Civil, Chemical, Electrical, Mechanical, Petroleum Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Environmental, Systems Engineering, TJES is interested with a theme issue on specific topics.

TJES was originally published in 1994 with a one issue per year; it had basic requirements and sources. TJES issued two issues in 1999 and started in 4 issues per year since 2004.

TJES invites research papers that encompass conceptual analysis, design implementation and performance evaluation. All papers, submitted for possible publication at TJES, are subject to a double-blind check, peer review process, plagiarism and similarity tests. Submissions are accepted only in English and Arabic.

The Tikrit Journal for Engineering Sciences is not limited to a specific aspect of science and engineering but is instead devoted to a wide range of subfields in the engineering sciences. While it encourages a broad spectrum of contribution in the engineering sciences, its core interest lies in issues concerning material modeling and response. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome.

The primary goal of the new editors is to maintain a 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 names of the authors deleted with a view towards enhancing the objectivity and fairness of the review process.

Articles that are devoted to the purely mathematical aspects without a discussion of the physical implications of the results or the consideration of specific examples are discouraged. Articles concerning material science should not be limited merely to a description and recording of observations but should contain a theoretical or quantitative discussion of the results.

The Journal accepts 7 types of articles defined as follows:

  1. Research Articles: A research article is a regular article which aims to present new findings.
  2. Letters to the Editor: A letter to the editor is a short article which aims to present new findings that require fast publication procedures.
  3. Notes: A note is an article (regular or short) which aims to present rather new findings.
  4. Comments: A comment is a short article that makes comments on another article already published by this Journal or replies to a comment.
  5. Review Articles: A review article is an article which aims to present comprehensively already existing findings.
  6. Lecture Notes: A lecture note is a short review article.
  7. Selected Conference articles: Upon an agreement with a conference committee, selected papers may be published by the Journal in a special section. In this case, the editor will appoint in collaboration with the conference committee guest editors.

The Editors reserve the right to reject papers without sending them out for review.

  • The left and right margins shall be 20 mm.
  • The text shall have both the left and right margins justified
  • Papers should be written in clear and concise language and consist of major sections and minor sections.
  • Use a normal, plain font (e.g., Times Roman), 10 points for text.
  • For textual emphasis use italic types all that must be in double columns.
  • For indents use tab stops or other commands, not the space bar.
  • Use the table functions of your word processing program, not spreadsheets, to make tables. Tables are referred to in the text by “Table n” (capital T).
  • Place any figure legends or tables at the end of the article.
  • Submit all figures in their original formats and as separate files and kept separate from the text.
  • Figures are referred to in the text by “ n.” (capital F).
  • Indicate the preferred location of each table and figure in the body of the manuscript.

Equations and Mathematical Expressions

Equation numbers should appear in parentheses and be numbered consecutively. All equation numbers must appear on the right-hand side of the equation and should be referred to within the text. Two different types of styles can be used for equations and mathematical expressions. They are in-line style and display style. In-line equations/expressions are embedded in paragraphs of the text. For example, In-line equations should not be numbered. Equations in display format are separated from the paragraphs of text. The equation should be flushed to the centered of the column. For example:

Fractional powers should be used instead of root signs. A slash (/) should be used instead of a horizontal line for fractions, whenever possible; for example, use 2/3 for two-thirds. Refer to equations in the text as “Eq. (1)” or, if at the beginning of a sentence, as ” Equation (1)”.

Using space before and after equation 6 points.

 Abbreviations

Abbreviations should be defined at first mention in the abstract and again in the main body of the text and used consistently after that. A list of symbols should follow the abstract if such a list is needed. Symbols must be written clearly. The international system of units (SI units) should be used. Essential footnotes to the text should be numbered consecutively and placed at the bottom of the page to which they refer.

Conclusion

A conclusion section must be included and should conclude on the findings of the reported work. There shall be no discussion about results or analysis in this section.

Acknowledgments

An acknowledgment section may be presented after the conclusion if desired. This section shall be kept brief, acknowledging the support rendered by individuals, departments, and organization.

After the article passes the plagiarism checking stage, and editor or editor section check, each manuscript will be reviewed by at least three independent referees who are within the subject area.

Peer review is a critical element of scholarly publication, and one of the major cornerstones of the scientific process. Peer Review serves two key functions:

1-Acts as a filter: Ensures research is properly verified before being published

2-Improves the quality of the research: rigorous review by other experts helps to hone key points and correct inadvertent errors

Publication Ethics

For a peer-reviewed journal, the publication of articles plays an essential role in the development of a coherent network of knowledge. It is, therefore, essential that all publishers, editors, authors, and reviewers, in the process of publishing the journals, conduct themselves in accordance with the highest level of professional ethics and standards.

Publisher’s Responsibilities

We follow the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)’s Code of Conduct for Journal Publishers (  PDF ). The publisher is dedicated to supporting the vast efforts of the editors, the academic contributions of authors, and the respected volunteer work undertaken by reviewers. The publisher is also responsible for ensuring that the publication system works smoothly, and that ethical guidelines are applied to assist the editor, author, and reviewer in performing their ethical duties.

Editor’s Responsibilities

We follow the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)’s Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors (  PDF ). In addition, some key points are listed below. The editor should acknowledge receipt of submitted manuscripts within two working days of receipt and ensure an efficient, fair, and timely review process. The editor should ensure that submitted manuscripts are processed in a confidential manner, and that no content of the manuscripts will be disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, and the publisher, as appropriate.The editor should recuse himself or herself from processing manuscripts if he or she has any conflict of interest with any of the authors or institutions related to the manuscripts. The editor should not disclose the names and other details of the reviewers to a third party without the permission of the reviewers. The editor has the right to make the final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript with reference to the significance, originality, and clarity of the manuscript and its relevance to the journal. The editor should by no means make any effort to oblige the authors to cite his or her journal either as an implied or explicit condition of accepting their manuscripts for publication. The editor should not use for his or her own research any part of any data or work reported in submitted and as yet unpublished articles. The editor should respond promptly and take reasonable measures when an ethical complaint occurs concerning a submitted manuscript or a published paper, and the editor should immediately contact and consult with the author. In this case, a written formal retraction or correction may also be required.

Reviewer’s Responsibilities

We follow the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)’s COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers (  PDF). In addition, some key points are listed below. The reviewer who feels unqualified to review the assigned manuscript or affirms that he or she cannot meet the deadline for completion of the review should immediately notify the editor and excuse himself or herself from the process of reviewing this manuscript. The reviewer should inform the editor and recuse himself or herself from reviewing the manuscript if there is a conflict of interest. Specifically, the reviewer should recuse himself or herself from reviewing any manuscript authored or coauthored by a person with whom the reviewer has an obvious personal or academic relationship, if the relationship could introduce bias or the reasonable perception of bias. The reviewer should treat the manuscript in a confidential manner. The manuscript should not be disclosed to or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor. The reviewer should approach the peer-review job objectively. Personal criticism of the author is unacceptable. The reviewer should not use for his or her own research any part of any data or work reported in submitted and as yet unpublished articles. The reviewer should immediately notify the editor of any similarities between the manuscript under review and another paper either published or under consideration by another journal. The reviewer should immediately call to the editor’s attention a manuscript containing plagiarized material or falsified data.

Author’s Responsibilities

The author should not submit concurrent manuscripts (or manuscripts essentially describing the same subject matter) to multiple journals. Likewise, an author should not submit any paper previously published anywhere to the journals for consideration. The publication of articles on specific subject matter, such as clinical guidelines and translations, in more than one journal is acceptable if certain conditions are met. The author should present a precise and brief report of his or her research and an impartial description of its significance. The author should honestly gather and interpret his or her research data. Publishers, editors, reviewers, and readers are entitled to request the author to provide the raw data for his or her research for convenience of editorial review and public access. If practicable, the author should retain such data for any possible use after publication. The author should guarantee that the works he or she has submitted are original. If the author has used work and/or words by others, appropriate citations are required. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

The author should indicate explicitly all sources that have supported the research and also declare any conflict(s) of interest. The author should give due acknowledgement to all of those who have made contributions to the research. Those who have contributed significantly to the research should be listed as coauthors. The author should ensure that all coauthors have affirmed the final version of the paper and have agreed on its final publication. The author should promptly inform the journal editor of any obvious error(s) in his or her published paper and cooperate earnestly with the editor in retraction or correction of the paper. If the editor is notified by any party other than the author that the published paper contains an obvious error, the author should write a retraction or make the correction based on the medium of publication.
