Manuscripts should be organized in the following order: Title; authors and affiliations; abstract and key words; main body of paper; acknowledgment (where applicable); references; appendices (where applicable). 

Abstract should not exceed 150 words. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. so it may become a useful document in an information-retrieval system. Three to ten key words should be included.

No rigid rules concerning notation or abbreviation need to be observed, but each manuscript should be self-contained as to symbols and units, which should be properly defined.

All figures and tables should be placed within the text and identified with consecutive Arabic (not Roman) number in the order they are referred (separate numbers for tables and figures). All lettering, lines and symbols must be of uniform size and cropped to remove irrelevant information. It is better to use several simple tables than one large, complex table. All figures should be clear and suitable for reduction (up to 50% original size). Lettering must be clear and must be large enough to be reduced by the same proportion. All tables and figures must be accompanied by a self-explanatory caption.

Mathematical expressions
Mathematical symbols and formulae should be typed. Particular care should be exercised in identifying all symbols and in avoiding ambiguities. Distinction should be made between the number one (1) and the letter l, or i and between the number zero (0) and the letter o. Equations must be numbered consecutively. Equation numbers should appear in parentheses. All equation number must appear on the right-hand side of the equation and should be referred to within the text. Use following sequence of parenthesis; )] }. 

Increased discoverability of research and high quality peer review are ensured by online links to the sources cited. In order to allow us to create links to abstracting and indexing services, please ensure that data provided in the references are correct. Please note that incorrect surnames, journal/book titles, publication year and pagination may prevent link creation. When copying references, please be careful as they may already contain errors.

References to published literatures should be quoted in the text in numerical order. Numerical citation should be typed on the line, not as a superscript, and enclosed in square bracket, [1]. The references should be listed together at the end of the text in consecutive order, with enough information to allow readers to find the cited item.
