(Maximum number of pages of initial submission is limited to 8 pages).

After acceptance, please use this template: Template for Final submission 

 For the final submission of more than 8 pages, the over-page charge will be applied.

Manuscripts should be typed in two-column, 12 point Times New Roman font and 2.5-cm margins in standard A4 paper.

The paper should be reasonably subdivided into sections and, if necessary, subsections.

All manuscripts should be in an electronic format (only 'PDF' files) and less than 10Mb.  

Names of the authors and their affiliations must remain anonymous in the submitted manuscripts for a fair review.

Note: For the submitted manuscript, the Minimum number of pages is 8 (two-column). For extra pages more than 8 (two-column) in the final accepted manuscript, the authors will be charged. 

2) Peer Review

The IECO employs a web-based manuscript submission portal for peer-review. All manuscripts are treated as confidential. Each manuscript is peer-reviewed by at least two anonymous reviewers who are specialized in the field of the manuscript.

3) Language

IECO publications are in English language. As all the published papers are accessed internationally so it is required to prepare your paper in the proper English language. If your native language is not English, please get a native English-speaking person to carefully proofread your paper. All the submissions with broken English will be rejected by the secretary without any review.

3) References

Referencing is based on IEEE.

In the referencing of sources, it should be carefully introduced first Persian sources and then English sources. 

Sources should be sorted based on the last name of the first author, and if the last name of the first author is the same, they will be sorted based on the last name of the next authors and the year. After sorting the first source, it is introduced with number 1, and in the same way, a reference number is determined for other sources. This number is used for referencing in the text.

In general, the order of writing the specifications of the sources in this style of reference writing is first the reference number, the name of the author or authors, the title of the source in italics, its edition number, the place of publication or the publisher, and finally the year of publication.
