Author Guidelines

The journal use the Online Journal System (OJS) for its publication procedures, encompassing submission, review, proofreading, and copyediting.  Each submission will undergo screening using Turnitin to ensure a similarity index of less than 30% before the review process begin.

The manuscript should be written in English in the font of Times New Roman and should be prepared via the Microsoft Word processor. The type of manuscript allowed for submission in this journal are:

  • Research Articles: Research Articles presents original research that is expected to present a major advancement and contribution to the body of knowledge or the particular area which include abstract, introduction, literature review, research methodology, results and discussions, conclusion, acknowledgement and references. 
  • Review Articles: Review Articles described the current state of the knowledge and provide suggestions for potential future research direction in the field.

The formatting is strictly follow JTEC template: JTEC Manuscript Template. The manuscript format is outlined below. 

A.     Page Limit

The number of page for the manuscript may vary from minimum of 4 pages to the maximum of 10 pages in A4 size. Authors are required to strictly advise to adhere to this limit. Manuscript with less than 4 pages or exceeding 10 pages may be unable to be included in the Journal.

B.     Margin

The manuscript should be within the print area with margin of 0.7 inches top and bottom; and 0.65 inches for left and right margin. Page number should appear at the bottom right of the odd pages and bottom left of the even pages of the manuscript.

C.     Text

The body of the manuscript should be typed in double column (column width = 3.38 inches and column spacing 0.2 inches), single spacing, 10-font size, Times New Roman, printed on one side of the sheet. Section headings should be typed in 10-font size, Times New Roman, centered in the column with small cap effects and each of the word is capitalized. Sections should be numbered consecutively.

D.     Figures, Tables, Charts & Diagrams Format

Figures, tables, charts & diagram should be presented as clear as possible. If copying and pasting an image, make sure all elements are clear and the print size is readable.  They can be in black and white with minimum shading or colored with high visibility. Do not use color unless it is necessary for the proper interpretation of your figures. If you want reprints of your color article, the reprint order should be submitted promptly and numbered consecutively. They should have a brief title/caption in a font size of 8.

Tables and figures must all be labelled with numbered captions that clearly identify and describe them. The table contents should be typed in single spacing, 8-font size, Times New Roman.

E.     Mathematical Notation and Equation

For Mathematical notation and equation, use either the Microsoft Equation Editor, MathType or any relevant tools. Number the equations consecutively with equation numbers in parentheses flush.

F.     References

Authors are required to follow the IEEE format style for all references cited in the manuscript. References should be numbered and cited within the square brackets in order of appearance in the text. Example of references can be from books, journal publication, conference proceedings and websites. A list of references should be listed at the end of the manuscript. No footnotes are allowed. The references should be typed in single spacing, 8-font size, Times New Roman. All references should be to the most pertinent and up-to-date sources. Use of a tool such as EndNote, Mendeley, or any relevant tools for reference management and formatting are acceptable, provided that it follows consistent format as the following examples:
