    The American Transactions on Engineering & Applied Sciences publishes research reports, articles concerning development works, technical works, research activities, experiments, designs, and experiences.  The objectives are to publicize and promote the research contributions and innovative works in the fields associated with engineering, management, applied sciences, and technologies.

    Student Authors
    For student publication (student authors), students are highly encouraged to submit their articles/papers of technical & research works to the American Transactions on Engineering & Applied Sciences. To keep standard and quality of publication for student papers, the works must be under supervision of their advisors / supervisors, therefore their advisers / supervisors names must be in the publications, as corresponding authors (according to the editorial rule).

    Editorial Policy
    Papers of research reports and articles with scientific research merit will be judged for publication under careful consideration from international reviewers.  Such research reports and articles include those containing substantial supported theories, innovative works, substantial experimental results and/or containing useful and constructive discussions or reviews standardized to regional or international acceptance. The editor reserves the right to recommend for revision as a condition for final acceptance.

    ** See Ethical Guidelines for suggestion related to manuscript submission.

    Peer Review: All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed independently by three individuals who have an understanding and appreciation of the academic peer review process and the respective standards.

    Manuscript Preparation Guide

    Writing Style
    The writing should be enjoyable to read and easy to understand.  ATEAS encourages authors to write active voice sentences.  Authors can use the term "We and I" to explain in close relation to readers.  Be careful some words, for example, "data" are plural (except a single data) / affect (v) and effect (n) / compare with and compare to.

    Length of Manuscript
    Manuscript length is not specified. However, it should be as shortest as possible. The writing should be precise and concise in order to keep the number of pages low. Normally, manuscript length using the template below is about 10-20 pages. Nevertheless, the exact length should be designed by the authors as to discuss critical aspects/give important details/tables/figures/charts. Please be more specific on the writing subject, so the readers can pay attention to the reading article.

    SI system of units is preferable.

    Names of Authors
    Names of authors, at least first or middle name must be fully written.

    Nomenclature and Symbols
    Authors may consider to add a section to identify nomenclature and symbols used in the manuscript. The nomenclature section should be inserted between the abstract and the introduction.  Symbols must be listed in alphabetical order within each of the following groups: English group first, then Greek, subscripts, and superscripts.  Numbers and other symbols should be listed last. If the nomenclature section exists, no need to give definitions scattered throughout the text.  Acronyms should be defined in the text, not in the nomenclature.

    A short and clear abstract should be written using less than 150 words. Abstract informs the purpose of the study, methods/procedures used, with brief details explanation. Equally important, abstract gives key results, with critical interpretations or conclusions.  It also confirms that results show consistency/inconsistency with the theory.

    Your conclusion should be the best part of your paper. It summarizes/synthesizes what have been discussed in the study.  Conclusion tells why this paper is important. The authors should tell that your work/idea/concept is meaningful and useful. It should be concise using precise word so your conclusion is not lengthy, so please be very specific on the topic, so readers can remember best.

    Peer-Review Comments
    Peer-review is a critical method to verify quality of scholar works. Authors must honor peer review comments in helping the manuscript improvement. Authors must work hard to improve the work to reach highest quality, and must above minimum standard for publication to get final acceptance for publication. All improvement details must be elaborated and submitted to the Editor-In-Chief. Of course, authors can argue peer review comments by giving reasons/references to counter peer review comments.

    Manuscript Format

    Figure and Table:  All Figures and Tables must be mentioned in writing, by referring to each Figure/Table, for example: All coefficients in Table 5 are from simulation.  Do not use "the above Table" or "the Figure below." 

    References: New up-to-date information should be used, therefore authors should cite newest references sources as possible.  It is important that all references must be mentioned in the writing, and vice versa.  Please also make sure all references are correct. Only references are used, not bibliography, not footnote.

    The manuscript details for text format (font and font size), topic, sub-topic, figure, table, references are given in the template for the journal (Microsoft Word 2003, 2007), downloadable at the bottom of this page.  Please submit your manuscript using the given template to obtain the correct format. Please submit only doc, docx (non-zip, non-rar) file.

    Submission of manuscripts
    - Right now we accept only manuscript use the template with un-modified format only. Please use ATEAS MS 2007 template, and do not change the format. Changing will delay the publication process.  The simply way is just by copying your work into the template, not trying to modify your file with the template setting.

    Cover letter: Author(s) should write a cover letter stating about (i) originality of the scientific article (ii) contributions of individual coauthors in the preparation of the article (iii) no conflicts of interest (iv) sources of funding of research presented in the scientific article or of the preparation of the scientific article
