GUIDELINES FOR AUTHORS

Aims and Scopes

Using computational methods (Micromagnetic, DFT, MD molecular dynamics, CFD, Monte Carlo, FEM, transport neutron, etc) and standard experimental tools and analysis (FTIR, XRD, EDAX, etc) to develop potential applications of new materials and renewable energy resources by:

  • Predicting material properties as electronics materials, photonics materials, magnetic materials, spintronics materials, optoelectronics materials, nuclear materials, thermoelectric materials, etc.

  • Exploring new design of energy resources as in nuclear power plants, solar cell, fuel cells, biomass, thermoelectrics generators, nuclear batteries, etc.

Language

All articles should be written in clear and concise English.

Structure

Please use the following structure for your research article.

Title

The title should be brief and informative. For the article presented in a scientific meeting should be informed in a footnote.

Authors

Authors’ names should appear immediately below the title, followed by Authors’ affiliations and addresses. The email address of the corresponding author should be below the addresses.

Abstract

Abstract should be no longer than 500 words, giving a brief summary of the content and conclusions. Do not include artwork, tables, elaborate equations or references. Use arial 10 for abstract. The text area for your manuscript must be 17 cm wide and 25 cm high (6.7 and 9.8 inches, resp.). Do not place any text outside this area. Use good quality, white paper of approximately 21 x 29 cm or 8 x 11 inches (please do not change the document setting from A4 to letter)

Keywords

List the keywords covered in your paper. These keywords will also be used by the publisher to produce a keyword index. 4-6 keywords should be provided for indexing and abstracting.

Introduction

All manuscripts must be in English. Please keep a second copy of your manuscript in your office (just in case anything gets lost in the mail). When receiving the manuscript, we assume that the corresponding authors grant us the copyright to use the manuscript for the book or journal in question. Should authors use tables or figures from other Publications, they must ask the corresponding publishers to grant them the right to publish this material in their paper.

Use italic for emphasizing a word or phrase. Do not use boldface typing or capital letters except for section headings (cf. remarks on section headings, below). Use a laser printer, not a matrix dot printer.

Theoretical Background

A theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction and lay the foundation for further work. In contrast, a Calculation section represents a practical development from a theoretical basis.

Materials and Methods

Provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference. Only relevant modifications should be described.

Results and Discussion

Results should be clear and concise. Discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

Conclusion

The conclusion section is required. It contains the main points of the article. It should not replicate the abstract, but might elaborate the significant results, possible applications and extensions of the work.

Acknowledgment

Acknowledgment is recommended to be given to persons or organizations helping the authors in many ways. Sponsor and financial support acknowledgments may be placed in this section. Use the singular heading even if you have many acknowledgments.

Notes

Organization of the Text

Section Headings. The section headings are in boldface capital and lowercase letters. Second level headings are typed as part of the succeeding paragraph (like the subsection heading of this paragraph).

Page Numbers. Do not print page numbers: Please number each sheet toward the middle near the bottom (outside the typing area) with a soft pencil.

Tables. Tables (refer with: Table 1, Table 2, ...) should be presented as part of the text, but in such a way as to avoid confusion with the text. A descriptive title should be placed above each table. The caption should be self-contained and placed below or beside the table. Units in tables should be given in square brackets [meV]. If square brackets are not available, use curly {meV} or standard brackets (meV). See the example for Table 1. Use Arial 10 for text in the table.

Special Signs. For example , α γ μ Ω () ± Γ {110} should always be written in with the fonts Times New Roman or Arial

Figures. Figures (refer with: Fig. 1, Fig. 2, …) also should be presented as part of the text, leaving enough space so that the caption will not be confused with the text. The caption should be self-contained and placed below or beside the figure. Generally, only original drawings or photographic reproductions are acceptable. Only very good photocopies are acceptable. Utmost care must be taken to insert the figures in correct alignment with the text. Half-tone pictures should be in the form of glossy prints. If possible, please include your figures as graphic images in the electronic version. For best quality the pictures should have a resolution of 300 dpi(dots per inch).

Color figures are welcome for the online version of the journal. Generally, these figures will be reduced to black and white for the print version. The author should indicate on the checklist if he wishes to have them printed in full color and make the necessary payments in advance.

Equations. Equations (refer with: Eq. 1, Eq. 2, ...) should be indented 5 mm (0.2"). There should be one line of space above the equation and one line of space below it before the text continues. The equations have to be numbered sequentially, and the number put in parentheses at the right-hand edge of the text. Equations should be punctuated as if they were an ordinary part of the text. Punctuation appears after the equation but before the equation number, e.g.

c2 = a2 + b2. (1)

Literature References. References are cited in the text just by square brackets [1]. (If square brackets are not available, slashes may be used instead, e.g. /2/.) Two or more references at a time may be put in one set of brackets [3,4]. The references are to be numbered in the order in which they are cited in the text and are to be listed at the end of the contribution under a heading References, see our example below.
