MANUSCRIPT FORMATTING GUIDE
The Title should be a brief phrase describing the contents of the paper. The Title Page should include the authors’ full names and affiliations, the name of the corresponding author along with the E-mail.
Author (s): Authorship should be limited to those who have contributed substantially to the work. Please note the corresponding author’s name and corresponding e-mails should be giving. Authors’ name should be written by family name or surname, their given names should be shortened to initials.The authors’ affiliation (s) should be written below their names.
The Abstract should be enlightening and totally personal description, in brief present the topic, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and conclusions. The abstract should not exceed 350 words. Complete sentences, active verbs, and the third person should be employed, the abstract should be written in the past tense. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided.
The key words: below the abstract, about 3 to 9 keywords should be listed that will provide indexing references.
The Introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant reviewed literature on the subject, and the proposed approach or solution. It should be comprehensible to academicians around the globe of scientific disciplines.
Material and Methods
Materials and methods: Subheadings should be used. Methods, procedure or formula use should be complete enough to allow experiments to be reproduced. However, only authentic procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited, and significant modifications of published procedures should be stated in brief.
Results and discussion
Results should be presented with clearness and accuracy. The results, procedure should be written when describing the authors’ analysis, theory test, investigation and experimental outcomes. Previously published results should be written as in present events. Results should be explained fundamentally with its outcomes.
The Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained in this and in past studies on this topic. State the conclusions in a few sentences at the end of the paper. The Results and Discussion sections can include subheadings, and when appropriate, both sections can be combined.
The Acknowledgements create an opportunity for appreciation of colleagues, institutions, companies, organization, grants and sponsorship. Acknowledgement should be brief.
The reference and cited in the Journal is following: Elsevier Harvard (with titles) citation style.
References: In the text, a reference identified by means of an author‘s name should be followed by the date of the reference in parentheses e.g. John (2013), Marcos et al. (2001), (Jimme, 2013), (Hans and Ronny, 2014). When there are more than two authors, only the first author‘s name should be mentioned, followed by ’et al‘. In the event that an author cited has had two or more works published during the same year, the reference, both in the text and in the reference list, should be identified by a lower case letter like ’a‘ and ’b‘ after the date to distinguish the works.
References should be listed at the end of the paper in alphabetical order. Articles in preparation or articles submitted for publication, unpublished observations, personal communications, should not be included in the reference list but should only be mentioned in the manuscript (e.g., Mark. K, University of Wisconsin, U.S.A). Authors are fully responsible for the accurate citing of the references.

Tables should be kept to a minimum and be designed to be as simple as possible. Each table should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend if any. Tables included in the text. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. The details of the methods used in the experiments should preferably be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph form or repeated in the text.
Figure legends should be typed in numerical order included in the text. Graphics should be prepared using applications capable of generating high resolution GIF, TIFF, JPEG or PowerPoint before pasting in the Microsoft Word manuscript file. Tables should be prepared in Microsoft Word. Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper case letters for their parts (figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.
