As far as possible, please keep the introduction comprehensible to scientists outside your particular field of research. References should be numbered in order of appearance and indicated by a numeral or numerals in square brackets, e.g., [1] or [2],[3], or [4] – [6]. See the end of the document for further details on references.

2.      METHODS

The method section may be divided by subheadings. This section should contain sufficient detail so that when read in conjunction with cited references, all procedures can be repeated. Please note that the publication of your manuscript implies that you must make all materials, data, computer code, and protocols associated with the publication available to readers. Please disclose at the submission stage any restrictions on the availability of materials or information. New methods and protocols should be described in detail while well-established methods can be briefly described and appropriately cited.

Research manuscripts reporting large datasets that are deposited in a publicly available database should specify where the data have been deposited and provide the relevant accession numbers. If the accession numbers have not yet been obtained at the time of submission, please state that they will be provided during review. They must be provided prior to publication.


The result section may also be divided by subheadings covering the key findings of the study, discussing the potential shortcomings and limitations of their interpretations; discussing their integration into the current understanding of the problem and how this advances the current views; speculate on the future direction of the research and freely postulate theories that could be tested in the future.

3.1  Subsection

The heading of a section title must be 12-point bold in all capitals aligned to the left. The heading of subsection and subsections must also be 12-point bold with initial letters capitalized. Words like “is”, “or”, “then”, etc. should not be capitalized unless it is the first word of the subsection title. No dot should be included after the subsection title number.

It is advisable to keep all the given values.

Regarding the page layout, the authors should set the Section Start to Continuous with the vertical alignment to the top and the following header and footer:

  • Header: 1.4 cm;
  • Footer: 2.2 cm.

3.3  Tables

Tables should be properly numbered, centred and should always have a caption positioned above them. Captions with one line should be centred and if it has more than one line should be set to justify. The font size to use is 11-point for caption and 9-point for text in a table cell. No bold or italic font style should be used. No dot should be included after the final sentence of a caption.

Detailed explanations or table footnotes should be typed directly beneath the table, but not in a table cell. Table footnote labels should be alphabetical; numbers or special characters are not permitted. Position tables as closely as possible to where they are mentioned in the main text. Tables should be cited in the main text as Table 1, Table 2, etc.

 3.5  Formatting of Mathematical Component

Equations should be placed on a separate line, numbered and centred. An extra line space should be added above and below the equation. The numbers according to equations must appear in consecutive order inside each section or within the contribution, with the number enclosed in brackets and set on the right margin, starting with the number 1. 



Authors should discuss the results and how they can be interpreted from the perspective of previous studies and of the working hypotheses. The findings and their implications should be discussed in the broadest context possible. Future research directions may also be highlighted.


Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proofreading the article, etc.). Personal acknowledgements should be limited to appropriate professionals who contributed to the paper, including technical help and financial or material support, writing assistance or proofreading the article, etc.


References should appear at the end of the article after the Funding, Acknowledgements, and Disclosure sections and follow the IEEE citation style. References must be numbered in order of appearance in the text (including citations in tables and legends) and listed individually at the end of the manuscript. The references must be written using a bibliography software package, such as EndNote, ReferenceManager, or Zotero to avoid typing mistakes and duplicated references. Include the digital object identifier (DOI) for all references where available.

Each article should have at least 20 references and 80% come from recent research articles (published in the last 10 years). In-text citations, use “et al.” for references of three or more authors. However, the references, list up to six names of authors. If there are more than six authors, the following authors should be written with “et al”.

Citations and References in Supplementary files are permitted provided that they also appear in the reference list here. In the text, reference numbers should be placed in square brackets [ ], and placed before the punctuation; for example [1], [1]–[3] or [1],[3]. For embedded citations in the text with pagination, use both parentheses and brackets to indicate the reference number and page numbers; for example [5] (p. 10), or [6] (pp. 101–105). Follow the example of forms of references as shown below.

The appendix is an optional section that can contain details and data supplemental to the main text. For example, explanations of experimental details that would disrupt the flow of the main text, but nonetheless remain crucial to understanding and reproducing the research shown; figures of replicates for experiments of which representative data is shown in the main text can be added here if brief, or as Supplementary data. Mathematical proofs of results not central to the paper can be added as an appendix.


All appendix sections must be cited in the main text. In the appendixes, Figures, Tables, etc. should be labelled starting with ‘A’, e.g., Figure A1, Figure A2, etc.
