Author Guidelines

Applied Science and Engineering Progress is an international, peer-reviewed, open access scientific journal which publishes research works related to applied science and technology. The articles will be examined by a scientific editorial committee and anonymous reviewers under double-blinded scheme. All peer-reviewed accepted manuscripts with high research quality and ethical standards are published with free access to all readers. All articles submitted to Applied Science and Engineering Progress are reviewed based on the following aspects, originality of work (no plagiarism), relevance to the scope of the journal, systematical and clarity of presentation (correct language and presentation) and novelty of work.

                             (1)

  • Use the 10 points, Times New Roman for the equation, e.g. italics for variables, bold for vectors (without arrows), bold italic for variable vectors, and capital bold italic for variable matrices.
  • The order of brackets should be {[( )]}, except where brackets have special significance.

 

Figures and tables 

  • Make sure that all figures, tables, graphs and line drawings are clear, sharp and of highest quality for publication.
  • Lines weights range from 0.2 points to 1.5 points.

  • The characters or numbers in the figures and/or tables must be typed as 10-point Times New Roman (8-point minimum).
  • Prepare tables as editable text and not as images for publishing process of journal editorial team.
  • Avoid using vertical rules and shading in table cells.
  • Your figures could be created by Microsoft Office. When those artworks are finalized, please “save as” or convert your images to one of the following formats: 

           - EPS (or PDF): Vector drawings, embed all used fonts.

           - TIFF (or JPEG): Color or grayscale photographs (halftones), keep to a minimum of 300 dpi. 

           - TIFF (or JPEG): Bitmapped (pure black & white pixels) line drawings, keep to a minimum of 1000 dpi. 

           - TIFF (or JPEG): Combinations bitmapped line/half-tone (color or grayscale), keep to a minimum of 500 dpi.

  • For color artwork, please make sure that files are in TIFF, JPEG, EPS, PDF or Microsoft Office formats with the correct resolution. 

Numbering, captions and positioning

  • The figure and table numbering must be provided in consecutive order, e.g. Figure 1, Figure 2, Figure 3 or Table 1, Table 2, Table 3.
  • The caption of a figure must be placed under the figure itself. And the caption of a table must be placed above the table.
  • Use (a), (b), (c) to distinguish individual subjects in a composite figure. For example, Figure 1 (or Table 1) must be used for referencing in the text.
  • Make sure that the size of figures and tables must be fitted to the page margins, and do not wrap the text around the figures.
