Preparation of Pre-Review Manuscript


Manuscripts, where appropriate, should contain these sections in the order: Title, Authors, Abstract, Keywords, Nomenclature, Introduction, Experimental Procedure, Theory, Results and Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgments (if any), References, Appendix (if any).

The manuscript may consist of text, equations, symbols, figures, tables, line-drawings, and photographs. Pre-Review Manuscripts are to be typed and formatted according to JESTEC Template (MS-Word Version). The easiest and fastest way to do this, please follow these steps:

·         Open your manuscript Word-file.

·         Open JESTEC Template file.

·         Select the Paste Options in JESTEC Template file: open Paste OptionàSet Default PasteàScroll down and select from the menu Cut, Copy, and PasteàPasting between documents when style conflictà select Use Destination Style (Default).

·         Once done, all what you need after that is Copy from your file to JESTEC Template and save.

 

-  Figures: All figures must be of good quality and are cited in the text with Arabic numerals by writing “Fig. 1” or “Figs. 1 and 2”. If the word appears at the first of a sentence, it is to be spelled out as Figure 1 or Figures 1 and 2. Place the figure caption positioned below it (center aligned) as close as possible to their first mention in the text.

-  Equations: Use standard Microsoft Word Equation Editor to edit your equations. Do not embed "graphically designed" equations. Equations should be numbered consecutively in the paper and are cited in the text by writing “Eq. (1)” or “Eqs. (1) and (2). If the word occurs at the first of a sentence, it is to be spelled out as Equation (1) or Equations (1) and (2). Leave space of 6pt before and 6pt after the equation line to separate it from the text. The equation is to be aligned to the left on the line while its number using Arabic numerals enclosed in parentheses is to be aligned to the right.

-  Tables: Use standard Microsoft Word Equation Editor to edit your equations. Do not embed "graphically designed" tables. Tables should be numbered consecutively in the paper and must be cited in the text by writing “Table 1” or “Tables 1 and 2. Tables are to be placed as close as possible to their first mention in the text and they are centered-aligned with caption positioned above them.

-  Nomenclature section is to be placed directly after first page at the top of the second page. It defines all the symbols (English and Greek), abbreviations, subscripts and superscripts used and arranged alphabetically. All standard symbols used in the text must be in italic mode and must be listed with their SI units in the Nomenclature.

Length: The preferable limit of the page number is between 10-15 pages.

Language: English (UK).

Abstract and Keywords: On the first manuscript page, following the title and authors with their affiliations (name, title, organization, city, state, country, email), please include a 100- to 200-word abstract summarizing your problem and findings. On a line below the abstract please include five keywords for indexing and database word searches.

References: All sources cited in the text must be included in the reference list, and vice versa. References are to be listed in the order cited in the text in Arabic numerals. Reference section to be as below
