Manuscripts should adhere strictly to the followings:
1. The document must be written in English (Ms Word), single-space
3. The reviewing process will be double-blind, hence, information about the authors must be omitted in the Initial (yet to be reviewed) submission. Papers that violate this anonymity requirement will be returned without review.
4. Authors are advised not to number the pages.
5. Major headings and subheadings should be numbered sequentially (1.0, 1.1, 1.1.1 etc). They should start at the left-hand margin on a separate line.
6. All tables and figures must be given sequential numbers (1, 2, 3, etc.) and have a caption placed below the figure (“Fig 1: Figure caption”) or above the table (“Table 1: Table caption”) being described.
7. Equations should be numbered consecutively throughout the text. Equation numbers should be enclosed in parentheses and flushed right. Equations should be referred to as Eq. (X) in the text where X is the equation number. In multiple-line equations, the number should be given on the last line.
8. The Journal primarily uses the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Style for publications and authors should adopt this style. In this style, citations are numbered and the citation numbers are included in the text in square brackets. At the end of the document, there comes the list of references that exclusively includes all bibliographical information next to the respective citation number.
