Author Guidelines

Article Types

Manuscripts submitted to APJESS should neither be published previously nor be under consideration for publication in another journal.

The main article types are as follows:

  1. ResearchArticles: Original research manuscripts. The journal considers all original research manuscripts provided that the work reports scientifically sound experiments and provides a substantial amount of new information. 
  2. Review Articles: These provide concise and precise updates on the latest progress made in a given area of research. 
Checklist for Submissions


• read the Aims & Scope to see if your manuscript is suitable for the journal,
• use the Microsoft Word template to prepare your manuscript;
• Download Copyright Transfer Form and signed by all authors.
• make sure that issues about Ethical Principles and Publication Policy, Copyright and LicensingArchiving PolicyRepository Policy have been appropriately considered;
• Ensure that all authors have approved the content of the submitted manuscript.

The main text should be formed in the following order:

Manuscript: The article should start with an introduction written in scientific language, putting thoughts together from diverse disciplines combining evidence-based knowledge and logical arguments, conveying views about the aim and purpose of the article. It must address all readers in general. The technical terms, symbols, abbreviations must be defined at the first time when they are used in the article. The manuscript should be formed in the following order:

  • Introduction,
  • Material and Method,
  • Findings,
  • Discussion and Conclusion.

References: At the end of the paper provide full details of all references cited in-text. The reference list should be arranged in the order of appearance of the in-text citations, not in an alphabetical order, beginning with [1], and continuing in an ascending numerical order, from the lowest number to the highest. In the reference list, only one resource per reference number is acceptable.
References must be numbered in order of appearance in the text (including citations in tables and legends) and listed indi-vidually at the end of the manuscript. We recommend preparing the references with a bibliography software package, such as EndNote, Reference Manager or Zotero to avoid typing mistakes and duplicated references. Include the digital object identifier (DOI) for all references where available. Please use IEEE style.

AbstractWe strongly encourage authors to use the following style of structured abstracts, but without headings: (1) Background: Place the question addressed in a broad context and highlight the purpose of the study; (2) Methods: briefly describe the main methods or treatments applied; (3) Results: summarize the article’s main findings; (4) Conclusions: indicate the main conclusions or interpretations. The abstract should be an objective representation of the article and it must not contain results that are not presented and substantiated in the main text and should not exaggerate the main conclusions. A line space should be left to the key words that will consist of at least 3 and maximum 5 words. Mathematical expressions should not be included in essence. For research articles, abstracts should give a pertinent overview of the work.

All these sections should be numbered. The text can also have sub-headings and sub-titles (2.1, 2.2, ...etc.).
