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. 


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.


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.


 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.

Please check online your manuscript by the following plagiarism checker before submitting it.  


The IECO journal uses the Plagiarism detection software "iThenticate"( to check the similarity of submitted manuscripts that should be less than 30 %.  


 Guidelines for Submitting the Final Manuscript for Publication
