Manuscript Format and Preparation
General- Articles published in the Invertis Journal of Science & Technology (IJST) are expected to meet scholarly expectations in both formatting and content. Although there are no maximum or minimum page requirements, papers should be concisely written. The manuscript that is judged to be unnecessarily lengthy, poorly written, theoretically under-developed, or based on imperfect science will be rejected by the editors and not sent out for peer review.
All submissions should include, in the following order: (1) title page, (2) abstract/keywords, (3) main text, (4) endnotes, (5) acknowledgments, (6) references, (7) tables, and (8) figures. All pages must be typed and doublespaced (including notes and references) using 12-point Times New Roman (or similar) font. Please use a 1-inch margin on all sides. Each table and figure should be on a separate page. The object is to provide reviewers and editors with easy-to-read text and space for notes. It is the responsibility of authors to submit manuscripts in the proper IJST format (see below). Manuscripts not submitted in the IJST format will be returned for revision. For questions or additional details on preparing and submitting manuscripts to IJST, please write to editors.
Endnotes should be used instead of footnotes, and endnotes should be used sparingly. If information is important to the reader, it should be placed in the text.
Language- The official language of the Invertis Journal of Science & Technology is English, and all documents must be written in English, using correct diction, syntax, and grammar.
Thetitle page should include:
The name(s) of the author(s)
A concise and informative title
The affiliation(s) and address(es) of the author(s)
The e-mail address, phone, and fax numbers of the corresponding author
Abstract- The abstract should be between 100-250 words. When applicable, the abstract should include (1) the sample size, (2) study design (i.e., survey, in-depth interview, linear regression model), and (3) the source of the data. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references.
Keywords- Please provide 4-6 keywords that can be used for indexing purposes.
Text- The text of the manuscript should begin on a new page headed by the full title. Notes, references, tables, figures, and appendices appear in separate sections following the text, in that order. Since manuscripts are evaluated through an anonymous peer review process, authors must remove identifying references or material. Additionally, use italics only for emphasis or titling, do not use field functions, use tab stops or other commands for indents (instead of the space bar), use the table function (not spreadsheets) to make tables, use the equation editor or MathType for equations, and save your file in two formats: .doc and .rtf. Do not submit .docx files.
Headings and Sub-Headings in the text indicate the organization of content. As a general principle, please do not use more than three levels of displayed headings.
Abbreviations and Acronyms should be defined at first mention and usedconsistently after that.
References Authors should number the references in the order in which they are cited in the text as per Vancouver guidelines. Use Arabic numbers with square parentheses. Cite works in the reference list at the end, according to the examples below.
