- Introductionprovides adequate background or context (problem and its significance) of the study. The subject should not be written extensively. It is expected that rationale or purpose of the study (gap analysis), the objective in general and specific, and hypothesis (if any) should be expressed clearly. Present a clear "state of the art" of the subject, which discussed literature and theoretical concepts behind it. A concise general background may be included in the article. Present at least 5 (five) recent related works to support the novelty of the research.
- Methodologyprovides sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced by an independent researcher. Methods that are already published should be summarized and indicated by a reference. If quoting directly from a previously published method, use quotation marks and also cite the source. Any modifications to existing methods should also be described. Indicate the participants observed, including demographic data, number of respondents, the rationale of respondents selection, etc. Describe the design of the experiment, such as the experiment procedures, surveys, interviews, observation characteristics, etc. Write the complete research procedure. Be sure that explanations made in the article will allow other researchers reproduce the work, or make future work out of it.
- Results and discussions. Write results in logical sequence. Results with important findings should be present first. When presenting results in a table or figure, do not repeat all those contents in the text. Present only the summary of the text. Describe only new and important aspects of the study. Do not repeat all information from results section or any section above. Present limitations of the study. Write the issues that are new or unsolved, for future research. This section consists of the information on What/How the presented data were produced, no raw data should be present in the article. The produced data are presented in tables, or figures with an explanation of what is the result/findings from the work. The section will also need to address connections between findings and basic concepts or hypothesis made earlier. Authors should also express whether any arguments were needed relating to other works from other researchers. Write implications made by the work related to theoretical or applications.
- Conclusions. The conclusion should be linked to the title and objectives of the study. Do not make statements not adequately supported by your findings. Write the improvements made to industrial engineering field or science in general. Do not make further discussions, repeat the abstract, nor only list the results of research results. Do not use bulleted points, use paragraphed sentences instead.
- Biographies Those who contribute but do not meet all criteria for authorship should not be listed as authors, but they should be acknowledged at the end of the text.
- Symbols and units, numbers
If symbols are defined in a nomenclature section, symbols and units should be listed in alphabetical order with their definition and dimensions in SI units. Please use the SI set of units as much as possible. Wherever the application domain uses a different set of units widely, please minimize the use of non-standard units or non-standard symbols for those units. As examples, the use of “a” for the year (annum) is depreciated and the use of “y” is encouraged instead. Similarly, “h” should be used for hours instead of “hr” and “t” instead of “ton” or “tonne”. It is important to take care of the case in which the measurement units are typed. E.g. “Km” does not mean “kilometers”, but “Kelvin-meters”.
When providing numerical values followed by measurement units, please leave a regular space or non-breaking space between each value and the measurement unit. This also includes percentages and degrees Celsius (e.g. 42 % or 35 %, 234 °C, 504 K). This rule also applies to the unit for a litre, which is recommended to be capital “L”. The authors are encouraged to render the numbers according to the International rules, specifying the dot as a decimal separator and the comma as a thousand separator.
Make sure that placing and numbering of equations are consistent throughout your manuscript.
Left aligns the equation and put the number of the equation flush-right, using a Right Tab on the right margin. Please reference equations in the text by writing: Eqn. .. (do not use Equation ..) In principle, variables are to be presented in italics.
- Figures and Tables
Figures and tables should be originals or sharp prints. Please use the SI set of units as much as possible. Figures and tables should be centered and placed either at the top or at the bottom of the page. Please do not render tables as pictures and please do not use too small font sizes in the illustrations. Please use the following fonts in your illustrations: Book Antiqua, Symbol, or use fonts that look similar.
If your figures and tables are created in a Microsoft Office application (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) then please supply 'as is' in the native format, too. Regardless of the application used other than Microsoft Office, when your electronic artwork is finalized, please 'Save as' or convert the images to one of the following formats (note the resolution requirements for line drawings, halftones, and line/halftone combinations given below):
- EPS (or PDF): Vector drawings, embed all used fonts.
- TIFF (or JPEG): Color or grayscale photographs (halftones), keep to a minimum of 300 dpi.
- TIFF (or JPEG): Bitmapped (pure black & white pixels) line drawings, keep to a minimum of 1000 dpi.
- TIFF (or JPEG): Combinations bitmapped line/half-tone (color or grayscale), keep to a minimum of 500 dpi.
Set table number and title flush left above table. Horizontal lines should be placed above and below table headings and at the bottom of the table. Vertical lines should be avoided. The title should use Book Antiqua 11, with 0 pt before and 6 pt after the paragraph, left-justified at the top of the table. Tables have to be included in the text. If a table is too long to fit one page, the table number and heading should be repeated on the next page before the table is continued. Alternatively the table may be spread over two consecutive pages (first an even numbered, then an odd-numbered page) turned by 90, without repeating the heading.
- Figure captions
Fig. 1 Captions should be placed below each illustration, font Book Antiqua, 11 pts. Figures and figure captions should be placed center; two narrow figures may be placed side-by-side. Please reference figures in the text by writing: Fig. .. (do not use Figure ..).
