Thank you for your interest in the Natural and Engineering Sciences (NESciences). You can submit your manuscript or track your submission via Editorial Manager for online submission and manuscript tracking. We look forward to handling your submission.
In order to allow swift consideration of your work, NESciences has relaxed some aspects of manuscript formatting until a manuscript is resubmitted following review and provisional acceptance for publication. Therefore, please carefully follow these instructions to avoid unnecessary delay and possible rejection of your paper.
The aim and scope of NESciences is to publish exciting, high quality science that addresses fundamental questions in Natural and Engineering Sciences. The Author declares that the manuscript is original and has not been published elsewhere in any form, that it has not been submitted to any journal/proceedings and that it will not be submitted to any other journal/proceedings. To verify originality, your article may be checked by the originality detection service Crossref Similarity Check. In the iThenticate and Turnitin Similarity Reports, a maximum overall similarity score of an M&S must be less than 20% without References and less than 30% with References. The Author is responsible for the research and results described in the paper If it is accepted for publication in the NESciences. If the article is a joint work of several authors (co-authors), the Author who submits the article declares that any person named as author (co-author) of the Article is aware of the requirements of this agreement and has agreed to being so named. The Author warrants that the article does not infringe upon any copyright, contains no libelous or otherwise unlawful statements and does not otherwise infringe on the rights of others. The Author transfers the copyright for this publication/article to the Publisher. The Author licenses to the Publisher the right to distribute the Article as a part of NESciences.

The Authors should include a statement on the welfare of animals in the Materials and Methods as Compliance with Ethical Standards if the research involved animals when submitting a paper.
The author will be held responsible for false statements or failure to fulfill the above-mentioned statement.
Citing in text
Articles cited in the text should be referred to as follows: By the surname of the author(s) with year of publication in parenthesis. Example: Charvalho & Turan (2018).
If both are in parenthesis, no punctuation separates the name(s) of the author and the year of publication. Example: (Carvalho & Turan, 2017).
If there are more than two authors only the senior author’s name is given. Example: (Carvalho et al., 2017).
Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter.
Footnotes can be used to give additional information, which may include the citation of a reference included in the reference list.
Footnotes to the text are numbered consecutively; those to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data).
Authors can thank any help obtained during the research and indicate funding with Grant number.
