Abstracts

The Abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, provide a clear statement of the problem, the proposed approach or solution, and point out major findings and conclusions. The Abstract should be 120 words in length size 10pt Book Antiqua. The abstract should be written in the past tense. Standard nomenclature should be used and, abbreviations should be avoided. No literature should be cited.

 

Keywords

The keywords should be avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts. Do not use words or terms in the title as keywords. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes. Keywords should not more than 5 words or phrases in alphabetical order.

 

1. Introduction

The Introduction should provide a clear background, a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, the proposed approach or solution, and the new value of research which it is innovation. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines. The introduction must be written using 600 until 750 words.

 

2. Methodology

Explaining research chronological, including research design, research procedure (in the form of algorithms, Pseudocode or other), how to test and data acquisition [1], [2]. The description of the course of research should be supported references, so the explanation can be accepted scientifically [3], [4]. A Theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction and lays the foundation for further work. A Calculation section represents a practical development from a theoretical basis. Materials and methods must be written using 400 until 600 words.

 

3.  Results and Discussion

Explained the results of research and at the same time is given the comprehensive discussion. Results can be presented in figures, graphs, tables and others that make the reader understand easily [2], [5]. The discussion can be made in several sub-chapters. Unit of measurement used should follow the prevailing international system. All figures and tables placed separately at the end of manuscript pages and should be active and editable by the editor.

 

4. Conclusion

The conclusion should be explained clearly. Suggestion placed after the conclusion contains a recommendation on the research done or an input that can be used directly by the consumer. Conclusion and suggestion must be written using 70 until 150 words.

 

References

The main references are international journals and proceeding. All references should be to the most pertinent and up-to-date sources. References are written in APA style and maximum 10 years ago.

Please use a consistent format for references. Please double-check: every citation in the text must match up to an entry in the reference list and vice-versa. References must always be given in sufficient detail for the reader to locate the work cited (see below for formats). Note that your paper is at risk of rejection if there are too few (<15) or if a disproportionate share of the references cited are your own 5 self-citation).

Nomenclature and Units
Please take care that all terminology and notation used will be widely understood. Abbreviations and acronyms should be spelled out in full at their first occurrence in the text.

SI units are strongly recommended. If non-SI units must be used, SI equivalents (or conversion factors) must also be given. Please use the spellings 'litre' and 'metre' (a 'meter' is a measuring instrument).

Please use a decimal point rather than a comma in numbers (i.e. 3.142 not 3,142).

Write equations in dimensionless form or in metric units. Please use italic letters to denote variables (in text or in displayed equations).

Artwork
All figures should be embedded correctly positioned within your Word files. In format JPG, JPEG or PNG formats are preferred clearly.

Figures should appear in numerical order, be described in the body of the text and be positioned close to where they are first cited. Each figure should have a caption which describes the illustration, and that can be understood independently of the main text. The caption should be given in the text, and not on the figure itself.

Because figures may be resized in the course of production please use scale bars and not magnification factors.

Tables
Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Please avoid using vertical lines.
