TYPES OF MANUSCRIPTS

TJES publishes original research articles, review articles, and technical notes, that adds significantly to the body of knowledge concerning science and engineering.

The Journal accepts 5 types of articles that are defined as follows:

1-Research Articles: A research article is a regular article that aims to present new findings. Manuscripts of Full-length Original Articles should include an abstract (Purpose, Methods, Results, and main Conclusion), Introduction, Experimental Methods, Results, Discussion, Acknowledgment, and References.  Figures, and Tables. Graphics, images, and diagrams should be submitted in a high-quality original format.

2-Review Articles: A review article is an article that aims to present comprehensively already existing findings. Review articles are intended to provide an updated perspective on a certain subject that could be relevant to the readership of the journal. Review articles should include an abstract…….etc., and new findings.

3-Technical Notes: A note is an article (regular or short) that aims to present rather new findings. Technical notes do not exceed four printed pages (including figures and tables). They are the appropriate form for new findings, original preliminary results, comments on papers published in the journal, or important new records. A Technical Note should not include an abstract. Technical notes will be reviewed as normal papers.

4-Selected Conference articles: Upon an agreement with the conference committee, selected papers may be published by the Journal in a special or regular issue. In this case, the editor will appoint in collaboration with the conference committee guest editors.

5-Erratum: a correction of a published text. As a general rule, publishers issue an erratum for a production error (i.e., an error introduced during the publishing process) and a corrigendum for an author’s error. It is usually bound into the back of a book, but for a single error, a slip of paper detailing a corrigendum may be bound in before or after the page on which the error appears. An erratum may also be issued shortly after its original text is published.

ِAbstract 

The maximum length of the abstract is 350 words. No literature references should be contained in the abstract. The abstract should briefly state the objective and approach and give a succinct summary of results and major conclusions should be drawn in one paragraph and a single column. Emphasis should be on what was found, not what was done.

Keywords

The author should provide five to seven keywords that clearly describe the subject matter of the paper and after the abstract for indexing purposes. The keywords must be arranged alphabetically.

Highlights

Highlights are 3-5 bullet points that help increase the discoverability of your article via search engines. These bullet points should capture the novel results of your research as well as new methods that were used during the study (if any). Think of them as the “elevator pitch” of your article. Please include terms that you know your readers will be looking for online. Don’t try to capture all ideas, concepts or conclusions as highlights are meant to be short: 85 characters or fewer, including spaces.

Equations and Mathematical Expressions

Equation numbers should appear in parentheses and must 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 the text. The equation should be flushed to the center 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 first mentioned 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.
