AUTHORS GUIDE

Preparation of manuscript

Manuscripts submitted to JRAME must be written in English and should be formatted in the same form and style as that of the final journal article. 

 

The title should contain the article title, authors' names and affiliations and the address for manuscript correspondence (including e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers).  For each author, a numbered superscript should be used to indicate institution affiliation.  The corresponding author should be indicated by the asterisk “ ” symbol and the presenting author should be identified by name underlining.  The corresponding author’s telephone/fax numbers and e-mail address should be provided as the final item in the title block.   Following the title is a single paragraph abstract summarizing the main findings of the manuscript in less than 150 words.  After the abstract a list of up to 6 keywords that will be useful for indexing or searching should be included.  The main body of the manuscript should start right after the keywords.  Experimental procedure, data and computational methods must be explained in sufficient detail to permit replication by other researchers. 

 

The main body of manuscript can be divided into sections and (optionally) sub-sections with sub-subsections.  All fonts must be in Times New Roman.

 

The size of the manuscript must be A4 (210 mm x 297 mm) and it should be typed in single paragraph with double spacings and the following margins.

                Top margin                                           30 mm

                Bottom margin                                    30 mm

                Left margin                                           30 mm

                Right margin                                        30 mm

 

Figures and Tables

All figures and tables should be placed after their first mention in the text.  Place figure captions below the figures and centered within a column.  Place table titles above the tables and flush left.  If figure has two parts, include labels “(a)” and “(b)” as part of the artwork. Please verify that the figures and tables mentioned in the text actually exist.  When citing a figure(s) in the text, they should be referred as, for example, “Fig. 1” or “Figs. 1-3.” or Table. 1.  Do not abbreviate “Table”.  Figures should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. Lettering on drawings should be professional quality or generated by high-resolution computer graphics.  Illustrations in color can be accepted only if the authors defray the cost.  TIF or EPS files are required for figures.

 

Equations

Equations should be placed about left and numbered consecutively.   Equation numbers should be Arabic numerals enclosed in parentheses on the right-hand margin.  They should be cited in the text as, for example, “Eq. (1)” or “Eqs. (1) – (3)”.  Be sure that the symbols in equations are defined before the equation appears or immediately followings.  The font and size of symbols should be consistent throughout the manuscript.

 

Acknowledgements

Acknowledgements may be made to individuals or institutes who have made an important contribution.

 

References

The relevant works must be cited and listed as references at the end of the manuscript, in order of citation.  They should be chronologically referred in the text by Arabic numerals enclosed in square brackets, e.g. [1], [1, 2], [1-3].  The reference list should be set in the same type face as the body of the text.   Some example of the references to journals, proceedings, technical reports, books and web-based articles are illustrated as follows:
