Guidelines for Submitting a Manuscript for Review


Style of a Manuscript for Review

Manuscripts should be typed one-column, double-spaced; 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.

Peer Review

The IECO employs a web-based manuscript submission portal for the 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.

Language

IECO publications are in English language. As all the published papers are accessed internationally so it is required to prepare your paper in 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.

 

 New: The EndNote reference style for IECO is IEEE style.

Plagiarism Check Online

 Plagiarism is the act of using another person's words or ideas without clearly acknowledging the source of the information that you have used. You can be guilty of plagiarizing even if you did not intend to copy someone else's work.

Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to:

1. Directly copying of words, sentences and paragraphs directly from the work of another. Copying another person’s words is an obvious example of plagiarism. It is improper to directly quote a paragraph, a sentence, or even a key phrase. Copying another person’s words without the use of quotation marks and appropriate references to signify that these are excerpts from someone else’s work.

2. Presenting another person’s ideas or theories as your own.

3. Presenting someone else’s technical, programming, digital information, thinking or expertise as your own.

 Guidelines for Submitting the Final Manuscript for Publication

 

Once a manuscript has been accepted for the publication, the authors will be notified by the IECO  Editorial board. At that point, a special format will be required for the publication. Your final manuscript for the publication must contain author biographies and photos and be saved in MS-Word (‘.doc’ file) which is less than 10Mb. Before submitting your final manuscript, please check the template file Template File for Publication and format your manuscript accordingly. Submit your final manuscript to the IECO on-line review system with your author’s ID.

  • All figures, tables, equations and captions should be clear and viewable.
  • 8 pages would be a preferable length for the IECO manuscripts.

For details of formation guidelines, you can download the template file for the publication. After proofreading and editing of the final manuscript by the IECO and prior to publication, the IECO will send the page proof to the corresponding author for the final editing.
