Author Guidelines

Paper submission

Article online submission: Original submissions will be through the platform. To start submission, the system requires the first time to be registered as an author; or login and access the author’s profile (if already registered). The submission of an original article implies that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract, part of a published lecture, academic thesis or diploma thesis), nor should it be considered for publication elsewhere, all authors must approve its publication and be authorized by the authorities responsible for the place where the work was done and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form in any other language.

Results of work contained in papers submitted to Journal of Applied Research in Technology & Engineering (JARTE) must not have been published previously in an international refereed scientific journal. Previous presentation at a scientific meeting or the use data in field day reports or similar documents, including local technical press, does not preclude the publication of such data in JARTE. Views expressed in papers published in JARTE represent the opinion of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the official policy of JARTE or Editors.

The Journal of Applied Research in Technology & Engineering (JARTE) does not have either article submission charges or article processing charges (APCs).

Preparation of manuscripts

Language: The papers will be published in English only.

Template: Papers must conform to the template provided by the journal (click here for download the MS Word template). This format will not be amended or replaced by a different format.

Personal data: There must be neither names nor affiliations of the authors in the file that the user uploads to the platform. Similarly any possible reference that might induce to know who the author is must be omitted (e.g. acknowledgements). These data must be filled in in the corresponding fields on the platform (as metadata) through the submission process, adding as many authors as signing the article.

Order: The paper (without appendices) should be compiled in the following order:

   - Title;

   - Abstract;

   - Main text (including Tables and Figures) and conventional headings (Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion and Conclusions, among others). Section headings should be concise and numbered sequentially, using a decimal system for subsections.

   - Acknowledgements (if any, in blank for reviewing);

   - References.

There are no restrictions on the length of manuscripts, but it is recommended not to exceed 25 pages, including artwork and references. Arial font will be always used. Regarding units, the International System of Units (SI) should be used. Not frequent characters or symbols should be explained in the text.

Papers sections:

   - Title (JARTE Title): The title of a technical paper should be concise and indicate clearly the subject matter (Arial font, bold, size 14, centred, capital letters).

   - Authors (JARTE Authors): The title should be followed in another line by authors’ names (name and surname, Arial font, size 11, centred). Next line will contain the place of work (affiliation, city and country) and e-mail address (JARTE Affiliation: Arial font, size 8, centred).

   - Abstract (JARTE Abstract Header: Arial font, bold, size 9, left): A concise outline of the content of the paper using no more than 300 words. (JARTE Abstract: Arial font, size 9, justified text).

   - Keywords (JARTE Keywords Header): Indicate 3 to 6 keywords (JARTE Keywords).

   - Section headings (JARTE Header 1: Arial font, bold, size 11, centred, numbered) should be concise and numbered sequentially, using a decimal system for both header sections and header subsections (JARTE Header 2: Arial font, bold, size 10, left, numbered; JARTE Header 3: Arial font, bold, size 9, left, numbered; JARTE Header 4: Arial font, size 9, left, numbered).

   - Text (JARTE Normal: Arial font, size 9, justified text, two columns): Type text single-space in double columns.

Illustrations and tables:

All the figures, graphics, image and tables must be placed in the text in the appropriate location, as close as possible to the reference. They will be ordered sequentially (Figure 1, Figure 2; Table 1…). If references are part of text, it is recommended to use its complete form (e.g. ‘Figure 1’); if they are not connected to the text, they must be referenced in brackets as (e.g. ‘Fig. 1’). To identify different images in figures such as Fig. 1a and Fig. 1b, JARTE Figure Sub-caption will be used for textlines (a), (b)… just below the images.

JARTE Figure Caption Label (Arial font, bold, size 8, centred) and JARTE Figure Caption (Arial font, size 8, centred) will be simultaneously used for the figure captions (just beneath the illustration), the former label style for ‘Figure X’ and the latter for the caption itself.

Figures (diagrams, images, maps, sketches) and tables will be adapted to the printing width: 80 mm one-column; 170 mm two-columns. The authors are free to add new sections with one-column for imagery and tables (and corresponding captions); afterwards, double column will follow. One-column image or table should be located at the beginning or at the end of page.

The content of the illustrations should be large enough to guarantee proper visualization and understanding. Colour imagery is highly recommended. Good quality images are requested for publication. Try to avoid low-resolution figures and tables embedded within the document. It is not allowed to overlay Word objects such as text and drawings on any image. Please insert the composed figures (with objects) as images in TIFF, PNG or JPG.

Similarly as figures, tables also have styles. JARTE Table Caption Label (Arial font, bold, size 8, centred) and JARTE Table Caption (Arial font, size 8, centred) will be simultaneously used for the table captions (above the table), the former label style for ‘Table T’ and the latter for the caption itself. For the first row of the table, the JARTE Table First Row (Arial font, size 8, centred, italics) will be used. The rest of the values will follow the style JARTE Table Data (Arial font, size 8, centred).

Equations:

Normal mathematical conventions should be followed for equations. This implies Times New Roman italics for symbols representing scalars and points (JARTE Scalar: Times New Roman font, size 9, italics e.g. x y z X Y Z), lower case normal symbols for vectors (v) (JARTE Vector: Times New Roman font, size 9), upper case normal symbols for matrices (ATA, confirm the convention for transpose, with superscript T) (JARTE Matrix: Times New Roman font, size 9, capital letters), and normal type for units (m, mm…) and all numerals including subscripts and superscripts (12, x3, α12) (not italic, JARTE Superscript and JARTE Subscript, respectively). All symbols should be defined when first used, and the use of the same symbol for different parameters within the same paper should be avoided. Equations must be numbered sequentially and referenced in the text.

Units:

All units must be reported in the SI Units (International System of Units).

The symbol for the decimal marker shall be the point (e.g. 9.95 m, 123.43 m2, 20.7 ºC).

For coordinates, parentheses will be used as well as comma to separate numbers, for instance, (0.997, 0.004), (700345.76, 4567253.56, 10.76). For dimensions, the ‘x’ will be used, e.g. 3.1 x 4.8 x 6.6 m.

Abbreviations and acronyms:

They should be clearly spelled out and figured out the first time they are used in the text.

Acknowledgements:

Please insert acknowledgements (JARTE Header: Arial font, bold, size 11, centred, unnumbered) in a separate section at the end of the article before the references. Do not include them as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those persons or companies who provided help during the research (e.g., proof reading, language help, free provided data, etc.).

Citations and references

All in-text references must be cited in the text, with hyperlinks to the corresponding items in the References section (JARTE hyperlink). Citations must follow the author-date style for referencing according to the American Psychological Association (APA), 6th Edition. The use of a reference management software in your word processor (that supports citation styles such as RefWorks, Mendeley and Endnote) is highly recommended to format automatically your citations and references in the journal’s APA6th style referencing.

Please make use of the JARTE Ref Header (Arial font, bold, size 11, left aligned text, unnumbered, spacing before 24 pt and after 6 pt) for the Reference Header and JARTE References (Arial font, size 9, justified text, hanging indentation 0.5 cm, spacing after 6 pt, line spacing exactly at 12 pt) for the full list of references.

For in-text reference with one author, for information prominent, the author’s name is within parentheses such as in (Satilmis, 2020) (example of citation with hyperlink to the reference); for author prominent, the author’s name is outside the parenthesis, for instance “Niaounakis (2019) states that….”. When the reference has two authors the citation must be (Kalpakjian & Schmid, 2014). For the first in-text reference with three to five authors, list all the authors’ family names, e.g. (Guerra, Cano, Rabionet, Puig, & Ciurana, 2018), then use the first author’s family name followed by ‘et al.’ for subsequent entries, e.g. (Guerra et al., 2018); for six or more authors, list only the first author’s family name followed by ‘et al.’. All the authors should appear in each entry of References section, i.e. authors must avoid the ‘et al.’ abbreviation in that section, unless eight or more authors; in this case, in the reference list include the first six authors’ names, then insert three ellipsis points (...), and add the last author’s name.

For several works by the same author in the same year, please arrange alphabetically by title in the reference list, and place lowercase letters “a”, “b”, “c” etc. immediately after the year. List two or more works by different authors who are cited within the same parentheses in alphabetical order by the first author's surname; separate the citations with semicolons (;), for instance (Guerra et al., 2018; Kalpakjian & Schmid, 2014; Satilmis, 2020).
