Co-Authorship: Place the author's name, affiliation and full address under the title. The affiliation and full addresses of each co-author must be specified in the case of multiple authorship of a submitted article. If more than one writer is present, please indicate clearly with an asterisk(*) who will handle the correspondence at all levels of refereeing and publishing, including post-publishing. Any alteration in the author names listed in the original manuscript, including additions, deletions, and/or changes in appearance order, requires proof of consent from all co-authors. When the paper is approved, it is forbidden to further switch co-authors.
Conflicts of Interest: Authors should state whether or not they have a financial relationship with the sponsoring entity. This note should be added to the reference list in an unnumbered separate section. If no conflict exists, authors should state: The authors declare that there is no conflict of interest regarding the publication of this paper.
Ethics: The originality of the manuscript submitted is the responsibility of the publisher. Submission, plagiarism, and self-plagiarism must be avoided by writers. Manuscript submission in the CrossCheck server (http:/www.ithenticate.com/) will be checked for plagiarism. iThenticate is a system that tests the originality of the submitted material and helps detect plagiarism. Authors can also use iThenticate to display their own credentials prior to submission.
Permissions: Authors wishing to include statistics, tables or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online formats and to include proof that such permission was granted when submitting their articles. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.
Paper and Text Format: The document should be written using the Latex template that can be downloaded from the Templates. Use the styles specified in this document to edit all text. Manuscripts must be written in English and correct grammar and punctuation, in 12-point type, double spaced throughout, including the Literature Cited section and appendices, marked with consecutive page numbers, beginning with the cover page contain sections in the order shown below (Abstract, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion).
Tables, Figures and Images: For the review process, tables can be embedded in the manuscript or submitted as separate files. Avoid shading, colour type, line drawings, graphics, or other illustrations within tables. Use tables for data only; present drawings, graphics, and illustrations as separate figures. Histograms should not be used to present data that can be captured easily in text or small tables, as they take up much more space. Tables should be in the LaTeX file.
Figures must be followed by an accompanying caption. Links to text tables are not abbreviated, e.g. "in Table I." If your figure has two or more parts, include the "(a)" and "(b)" labels after each part as separate text, etc. Figure axis labels are often a source of confusion. Use words rather than symbols. Figure labels, roughly 8 to 11-point size, should be legible. Make sure the artwork includes the axis labels and other items. It is necessary to mention all the figures and tables in the document.
Image quality is very critical for the replication of your graphics. While graphics can be accepted in many formats, if they are of poor quality, we won't be able to upgrade your graphics. All files must conform to these resolution ranges: Halftone (colour or black & white): 200-300 dpi, Grayscale and colour combination images: 300-500 dpi. Please note that the journal publishes colour figures in on-line version and black and white figures in print. All figures without colour should be understandable. Each file must be no larger than 10 MB; figures should be 10-20 cm in width and 1-25 cm in height.
Equations: To accurately represent the math characters in your article, please use MathType 5.0 or later for equations that need math characters not found on your keyboard. Consecutive numbers with the right margin should be labelled in flush parentheses as in (1). All symbols in the equation must be defined before the equation appears or immediately following.
Abbreviations and Acronyms: Avoid abbreviations or abstract acronyms unless they are commonly understood and used in the abstract multiple times. If the article uses an abbreviation or acronym, it must be spelt out (defined) in the abstract, and then spelt out the first time it is used in the paper's main text.
References: For initial submission and review, you may submit manuscripts with references formatted in the style of another journal. However, if your manuscript is accepted for publication, please format the references as they appear in a recent article of CHTA (in the style of APA).
Discussion and Conclusions: Discussion may present insights and interpretation of the research results. It is needed to be told what the results mean. Conclusions that state your paper's most important result, not repeat the abstract as the conclusion. Conclusions may expand on the paper's relevance or propose implementations and extensions at a lower abstraction level than the discussion.
* The journal only accepts the submission of manuscripts as English. The journal is free of charge.
