  1. Manuscript Submission

Submission of your manuscript implies that the work described has not been published previously (except for academic dissertation or thesis of the same author), and has not submitted simultaneously in another periodical. Authors have to sign an ethics declaration form upon submission. This form is available in our website:

Our journal is utilizing the global plagiarism checker “Turnitin” to screen any unoriginal content. The accepted limit is 20%. However, even with plagiarism percentage less than 20%, our editors will look at that content carefully to decide whether or not, the manuscript can be passed or not. Plagiarism checking service is offered for free to researchers who applied to publish in our journal.

  1. Submission Process

Submissions should be carried out through our website from “Make a Submission” icon. You are required to submit two files: (i) The manuscript in Microsoft format that is formatted according to our Template; and (ii) Signed Declaration Form in JPG or PDF format. The forms can be found in our website. If you’ve had any problems with submission process, please contact the journal through:



  1. Reference Format

Please use IEEE style for your references. We highly recommend using reference management softwares (such as: Mendeley, EndNote, RefWorks) to avoid the mistakes. Here are some examples for IEEE style:

Review Process

Once a manuscript passes the initial checks (plagiarism check and associate editor primary check), it will be assigned to at least two independent experts for peer-review. A single-blind review is applied, where authors' identities are known to reviewers. Peer review comments are confidential and will only be discussed with authors.

Reviewers may also include Editorial Board Members of the journal. Reviewers should not have published with any of the co-authors during the past five years and should not currently work or collaborate with any of the institutions of the co-authors of the submitted manuscript.
