Instructions to Authors

(Please read carefully and follow it for speedy acceptance and prevention of rejection)

International 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).

Authorship:  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 published.

All above conditions must be met. Authors may include explanation of each author's contribution separately.

Submission of Manuscript: Communications intended for publication must be sent in template available on website 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:

  • Title page

  • Abstract and key words

  • Introduction

  • Related Works

  • Methodology

  • Results

  • Conclusion

  • Acknowledgement (if any)

  • References

In general, the length of full research papers should not exceed 3000 words.

Title Page: The title page should include:

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.

Abstract and 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 paper.

Key words: 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.

Related Works:  The "Related 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.

Results:  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).

Conclusion: 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.

References: 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 IEEE format
