Author Guidelines

Please use the attached template at the end of this instruction to prepare your paper, but the use of the template is not a requirement for submission. You may refer to a current issue of this journal for general style.


1. Aims and Scope

International Journal of Intelligent Systems and Applications in Engineering (IJISAE) publishes original articles, reviews and short communications on all aspects of intelligent systems and applications in engineering. Fields includes but not limited to Robotics and mechatronics Technologies, Artificial intelligence and knowledge based systems Technologies, Real-time computing and its algorithms, Embedded systems Technologies, Actuators and sensors, Micro/nano Technologies, Sensing and multiple sensor fusion.


2. Submission of Manuscripts

Manuscript prepared in MS Word 2007 must be converted into a single file before submission. Paper can be submitted online at http://ijisae.atscience.org by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, navigate to submit manuscript page to submit paper online.


3. Manuscript Preparation


A4 paper format, the printing area is 17.5 cm x 25.8 cm. The margins should be  (top 18.1 mm , bottom 20 mm, left 19 mm, and right 16 m). The paper style of IJISAE should be followed.

Authors List and Affiliation Format

Authors' full first and last names must be given. A corresponding author must be marked as *. The complete address information including city, zip code, state/province, country, and email address should be added at the first page author information box.


The abstract should be prepared as one paragraph (150 to 250 words). .Avoid writing long formulas with subscripts in the title; short formulas that identify the elements are fine (e.g., "Nd–Fe–B"). Do not write “(Invited)” in the title. Full names of authors are preferred in the author field, but are not required. Put a space between authors’ initials. The abstract must be a concise yet comprehensive reflection of what is in your article. In particular, the abstract must be self-contained, without abbreviations, footnotes, or references. It should be a microcosm of the full article. 


A list of four to six keywords must be given, and placed after the Abstract. Enter key words or phrases in alphabetical order, separated by commas.

Figures, Schemes and Tables

Authors are encouraged to prepare figures, schemes and tables in color. Figure and tables must be numbered (Fig 1,  Table 1, etc.) and an explanatory title must be added. All table columns should have an explanatory heading. Please supply legends for all figures, schemes and tables. The legends should be prepared as a separate paragraph of the main text and placed in the main text before a table, or after a figure or a scheme.

Requirements for submitting Electronic Image Files

Graphic files can be in bitmaps or vectors. When you send the bitmaps please ensure high resolution. The preferred bitmap formats are TIFF (.TIF), PCX, JPEG (.JPG), (.PCD), Scitex (.CT) and GIF files. They should be at least 300 dpi.

Reference Preparation

Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Organization and citation of the bibliography are made in IEEE style in sign [1], [2] and so on.

The heading of the References section must not be numbered.  All reference items must be in 12 pt font.  Please use Regular and Italic styles to distinguish different fields as shown in the References section.Number the reference items consecutively in square brackets (e.g. [1]).

When referring to a reference item, please simply use the reference number, as in [2].  Do not use “Ref. [3]” or “Reference [3]” except at the beginning of a sentence, e.g.  “Reference [3] shows …”.  Multiple references are each numbered with separate brackets (e.g. [2], [3], [4]–[6]).
