Instructions to Authors
(Please read carefully and follow it for speedy acceptance and prevention of rejection)
Journal of Engineering Research in Current Trends [IJERCT] is an
online open-access peer reviewed journal which focuses on
research in the field of science and engineering at worldwide.
The journal encourages articles on original research, case
studies and reviews on topic of current interest.
The Journal is
published quarterly adopting the continuous publication model
and submission is open to researchers in the field of
engineering sciences across the globe. All papers are subjected
to screening by the Editorial Board followed by a blinded
peer-review by experts in the field. Authors are advised to read
our editorial policies to understand our review process. All
papers are accepted subject to editorial changes. The articles
of journal do not levy any fees and can be accessed on the web
free by the global community. The journal does not charge for
submission of article. However the journal charges nominal fees
for processing and publication of manuscripts including colour
reproduction of photographs (if requested).
All persons designated as authors should qualify for authorship.
Authorship credit should be based only on significant
contributions to design, analysis and interpretation of data and
drafting the article or revising it critically for important
intellectual content. Only final approved paper will be
All above conditions must be met. Authors
may include explanation of each author's contribution
Manuscript: Communications intended for publication must be
sent in template available on website www.ijerct.com. All
manuscripts are reviewed by an editor and members of the
Editorial Board or qualified outside reviewers. Decisions will
be made as rapidly as possible, and the journal strives to
return reviewers comments to authors within 2 weeks.
Preparation of the Manuscript (for
Original Research Article)
Manuscript must be written in clear and
concise English. It must be sent in Microsoft Word format (.doc
or .docx). General format of the research papers should be as
follows in given template:
Abstract and key words
Acknowledgement (if any)
In general, the length of full research
papers should not exceed 3000 words.
Title Page: The title page should
The title of the article should be concise
and informative. Name of all the authors limited to 6 authors
(with one forename of each author in full) followed by their
affiliations: department, institution, City and country. If more
than one department or institution is involved, authors name
should be linked to appropriate institutions/departments by
inserting consecutive numbers in superscript after relevant
names to which the work should be attributed.
Key Words: It should not more than 250 words in a single
paragraph format. It should provide readers with a quick
overview of your research or report and its organization. It
should express your idea key points. It should also suggest any
implications or applications of the research you discuss in the
Below the abstract, provide key words (minimum three but not
more than six) in alphabetical orders separated by coma.
Introduction: It should clearly state the purpose
of the study. Briefly summarize the rationale of the study and
clearly indicate the lacunae or deficiencies in previous studies
for which present study has been taken up. Give only pertinent
references. Do not review the subject extensively.
Work" section should synthesize your literature review. You must
cite and discuss references gained from at least 3 different
sources. It should contain
work that proposes a different method to solve the same problem,
work that uses the same proposed method to solve a different
problem, a method that is similar to your method that solves a
relatively similar problem and a discussion of a set of related
problems that covers your problem domain.
Methodology: It should clearly state all about your work like
department or laboratories where the work was carried out (if
any), approvals of Institute Research Council and Ethics
Committees were obtained prior to commencement of the study (if
any). In this section you have to describe your selection of the
methods, formulas, procedures, observational or experimental
subjects clearly in sufficient detail to allow other workers to
repeat the experiments. If the procedures involve an assay,
include data on its accuracy. Give reference to established
methods including statistical methods. Provide references and
brief descriptions for methods that have been published but are
not well known. Describe new or substantially modified methods.
Give reasons for using them and evaluate their limitations.
Include number of observation and the statistical significance
of the findings appropriately in tabular and graphical formats.
Detailed statistical analyses, mathematical derivations, and the
like may sometimes be suitably presented in the form of one or
more appendices. Present your results in logical sequence in the
text, tables and illustrations. Do not repeat in the text all
the data already given in tables, illustrations or both.
Emphasize and summarize only important observations. Each table
should be typed continuously with the text. Legends for
illustrations/figures should be typed continuously with the text
(as shown in the template).
Emphasize the new and important aspects of the study and
conclusions derived from them. Do not repeat in details data
given in the results section. Include in the discussion the
implications of the findings and their limitations and relate
the observations to other relevant studies. Link the conclusion
with the goals of the study but avoid unqualified statements and
conclusions not completely supported by your data. Discussion
should be relevant and an unnecessary lengthy presentation
should be avoided. It
should has a very brief summary note of the work with a
concluding remark should be given. This should include the
novelty and implication of the work and its contribution to the
upliftment of the present scientific knowledge in general.
Number the references consecutively in the order in which they
are first mentioned in the text. Identify references in text and
legends by Arabic numerals. Only appropriate references should
be cited. Generally, for a full research paper, the number of
references should not exceed 25. Use the IEEE format for
referencing as the example given below which is based on the

Electronic Packaging: With Emphasis on Multichip Modules:
Wiley-IEEE Press, 2013, pp. 51-74.
