10.14. Introduction

In the Introduction, the Authors should state the objectives of the work at the end of the introduction section. Before the objective, Authors should provide an adequate background, and very short literatures survey/review in order to record the existing solutions/method, to show which is the best of previous researches, to show the main limitation of the previous researches, to show what do you hope to achieve (to solve the limitation), and to show the scientific merit or novelties of the paper. Avoid a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results. Before the objectives and after the literature review, the author must state the gap analysis or novelties statements to show why does this paper is important and what is a unique idea of this paper compared to other previous researchers' suggestions.

One of the examples of novelty statement or the gap analysis statement at the end of Introduction section (after state of the art of previous research survey):

........ (short summary of background)....... .....(put here state of the art or overview of previous researches similar to this research).............. A few researchers focused on ....... There have been limited studies concerned on ........ Therefore, this research intends to ................. The objectives of this research are .........”.

 

10.15 Materials and Methods

Materials and methods should make readers be able to reproduce the experiment. Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described. Do not repeat the details of established methods. For the chemicals, please provide details of brand and purity (example: CaO (Merck, 99.5%)) first, and state the concentration of chemicals in the procedure of the experiment.

 

10.16. Results and Discussion

The results should be clear and concise. The results should summarize (scientific) findings rather than providing data in great detail. Please highlight the differences between your results or findings and the previous publications by other researchers. The discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

In the discussion, it is the most important section of your article. Here you get the chance to sell your data. Make the discussion corresponding to the results, but do not reiterate the results. Often should begin with a brief summary of the main scientific findings (not experimental results).

The following components should be covered in discussion:

  • How do your results relate to the original question or objectives outlined in the Introduction section? What is your finding of research? (what/how)? 

  • Do you provide interpretation scientifically for each of your results or findings presented? This scientific interpretation must be supported by valid analysis and characterization (why)? 

  • Are your results consistent with what other investigators have reported (what else)? Or are there any differences?

 

10.17. Conclusions

Conclusions should only answer the objectives of the research. Tells how your work advances the field from the present state of knowledge. Without clear Conclusions, reviewers and readers will find it difficult to judge the work, and whether or not it merits publication in the journal. Do not repeat the Abstract, or just list experimental results. Provide a clear scientific justification for your work, and indicate possible applications and extensions. This conclusion should be provided as a paragraph. You should also suggest future experiments and/or point out those that are underway.

 

 10.18. Acknowledgment

Recognize those who helped in the research, especially funding supporters of your research financially. Include individuals who have assisted you in your study: Advisors, Financial supporters, or may another supporter, i.e. Proofreaders, Typists, and Suppliers, who may have given materials. Do not acknowledge one of the authors' names.

 

10.19. Citations and References

Cite the main scientific publications on which your work is based. Cite only items that you have read. Do not inflate the manuscript with too many references. Avoid excessive self‐citations. Avoid excessive citations of publications from the same region. Check each reference against the original source (author name, volume, issue, year, DOI Number). Please use Reference Manager Applications like  Mendeley, Zotero, etc. Use other published articles in the same journal as models. The minimum number of references are recommended 10 references. 

Citation within the body text of the article to reference(s) must follow the numbering system. References must be presented sequentially and sorted to start from first cited reference.

Example: " Low carbon steel is extensively utilized in the construction sectors and various applications, due to their low cost than high-alloy steels and good mechanical properties as well [1,2]. However, low carbon steel has poor oxidation and corrosion resistance especially at high temperature, which restricts to their applications. Investigation on the fabrication of high resistant coating against oxidation and corrosion on low carbon steel is considered as an essential and promising task for solving the problem. Metals which can form continuous and stable oxides are widely believed to be suitable for fabricating anti-oxidation and corrosion coatings [3].”

All publications cited in the text should be included as a list of references. References are sequentially numbered as they appear in the text. Reference numbers are indicated in square brackets. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full. Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but maybe mentioned in the text. If these references are included in the reference list they should follow the standard reference style of the journal and should include a substitution of the publication date with either “Unpublished results” or “Personal communication”. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication.

As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed. Any further information, if known (DOI, author names, dates, a reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list.

Please ensure that the words 'this issue' are added to any references in the list (and any citations in the text) to other articles in the same Special Issue.

This journal has to follow standard templates available in key reference management packages,Mendeley , or Zetero.

Using plug-ins to word processing packages, authors only need to select the appropriate journal template when preparing their article and the list of references and citations to these will be formatted according to the journal style, which is described below.

Recommendations for references are:

  • Include ALL authors. et al., for multiple authors is not acceptable.

  • When referencing in the body of text, use 10pt Times Roman in square brackets [1].

  • Types of references are as follows: 

    • For a Book, see [1]

    • For a Journal Article, see [3]

    • For a Proceedings Paper, see [5]

    • For a Book chapter, see [7]

    • For a Technical Report, see [9]

    • For a Dissertation or Thesis, see [11]

  • When preparing your reference list, the following should be avoided:

    • References not cited in the text.

    • Excessively referencing your work.

    • Insufficiently referencing the work of others.

It is also preferable when Authors give the DOI number of each reference list in bracket [3], but it is optional for Authors. References list must be written consistently.

Examples of guideline for preparing the references list is described in the last section of this author guidelines.

10.20. References 

Citation within body text of the article to reference(s) must follow numbering system ("..... [1], ...... [2-3], etc.") which should be started from references cited first. However, the references list must be typed according to the IEEE Reference format.
