- Research Paper: Please provide full author information, a set of keywords and an abstract in the title page. Supplementary materials can be published if necessary. Authors are encouraged to be concise although currently there is no length limit on research paper. Short Research Communication presents a concise study, or sometimes preliminary but innovative research findings that might be less substantial than a full research paper.
- Short Research Communication is limited to 2500 words. It should have a set of keywords and an abstract summarizing background of the work, the results and their implications. Results and Discussion Section should be combined and followed by Conclusion. Materials and Methods will remain as a separate section. The number of references is limited to 30 and the number of figures and/or tables combined is limited to
- Letter: Description of novel findings that might not be suitable for a regular research paper or short research communication may be published as letter. Letter is limited to be under 500 words and 5 references. There should be not more than two figures or tables combined, and no supplementary material.
- Commentary: This is the place for discussing controversial and/or interdisciplinary topics, viewpoints and any other issues of interest. It is limited to a maximum of 10 references, 1 display (figure/table), and 1000 words including all contents.
- Review or mini-review should be authoritative and of high interest. A minimum of two figures/illustrations should be included in the review or mini-review that should be some 3000 or 5000 words long (excluding references and figure legends). High quality reviews from leading researchers in their fields are particularly welcome.
Graphical Abstract: authors should provide a graphical abstract (a beautifully designed feature figure) to represent the paper aiming to catch the attention and interest of readers. Graphical abstract will be published online in the table of content. The graphical abstract should be colored, and kept within an area of 12 cm (width) x 6 cm (height) or with similar format. Image should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi and line art 1200dpi. Note: Height of the image should be no more than the width. Please avoid putting too much information into the graphical abstract as it occupies only a small space. Authors can provide the graphical abstract in the format of PDF, Word, PowerPoint, jpg, or png, after a manuscript is accepted for publication. See more sample graphical abstracts in archive.
Supplementary information: The online submission form allows supplementary information to be submitted together with the main manuscript file and covering letter. If you have more than one supplementary files, you can submit the extra ones by email after the initial submission in the Manuscript Submission page.
Author guidelines are specific for each journal. Our template (.doc) can assist you by modifying your page layout, text formatting, headings, title page, image placement, and citations/references such that they agree with the guidelines of journal. If you belevie your work is fully edited and prepared per journal style, you can prepare your manuscript according to template befor submission.
Manuscripts that are judged to be of insufficient quality or unlikely to be competitive enough for publication will be returned to the authors at the initial stage. The remaining manuscripts go through a single-blind review process, and possible decisions are: accept as is, minor revision, major revision, or reject. Authors should submit back their revisions within 14 days in the case of minor revision, or 30 days in the case of major revision. To submit a revision please sign in here, fill out the form, mark "Revised" with a tick in Submission Type:* NewRevised, attach the revision (MSword) and submit when completed. Manuscripts with significant results are typically reviewed and published at the highest priority.
Plagiarism:There is a zero-tolerance policy towards plagiarism (including self-plagiarism) in our journals. Manuscripts are screened for plagiarism by Docol©c a plagiarism finding tool, before or during publication, and if found they will be rejected at any stage of processing.
Date of issue
All accepted articles are published Irregularly (April, August, December) in full text on the Internet. Each coming issue are released around 25th of these months.
Journal of World's Electrical Engineering and Technology is free of charge and published articles are open access. This effectively removes the barriers for timely distribution of the articles and ensures that they can be read by as many as possible.
Articles more than eight pages will be charged ($50) to cover the cost of publication, and should be paid before copyediting and publication.
Format for Publication
Please include figures at the end of manuscript Word file, or provide a high quality PDF containing all figures.
