Manuscript   Preparation


 

These instructions are written in a form   that satisfies all of the formatting requirements for the author manuscript.   Please use them as a template in preparing your manuscript. Authors must take   special care to follow these instructions concerning margins. The basic   instructions are simple:

      
  • Manuscript shall be formatted for        an A4 size page.
  •   
  • The top, left and right margins        shall be 30 mm.
  •   
  • The bottom margin shall be 25 mm.
  •   
  • The text shall have both the left        and right margins justified.

Structure

The manuscript should be organized in the   following order: Title of the paper, Authors' names and affiliation,   Abstract, Key Words, Introduction, Body of the paper (in sequential   headings), Conclusion, Acknowledgements (where applicable), References, and   Appendices (where applicable).

A. The Title

The title is centered on the page and is   CAPITALIZED AND SET IN BOLDFACE (font size 12 pt). It should adequately   describe the content of the paper. An abbreviated title of less than 60   characters (including spaces) should also be suggested.

B. Author’s Name and Affiliation

The author's name(s) follows the title and   is also centered on the page (font size 12 pt). A blank line is required   between the title and the author's name(s). Last names should be spelled out   in full and succeeded by author's initials. The author's affiliation,   complete mailing address, and e-mail address (all in font size 12 pt) are   provided below. Phone and fax numbers do not appear.

C. Abstract

A nonmathematical abstract, not exceeding   200 words, is required for all papers. It should be an abbreviated, accurate   presentation of the contents of the paper. It should contain sufficient   information to enable readers to decide whether they should obtain and read   the entire paper. Do not cite references in the abstract.

D. Key Words

The author should provide a list of three   to five key words that clearly describe the subject matter of the paper.

E. Text Layout

The manuscript must be typed single   spacing. Use extra line spacing between equations, illustrations, figures and   tables. The body of the text should be prepared using Times New Roman. The   font size used for preparation of the manuscript must be 12 points. The first   paragraph following a heading should not be indented. The following   paragraphs must be indented 10 mm. Note that there is no line spacing between   paragraphs unless a subheading is used. Symbols for physical quantities in   the text should be written in italics.

F. Section Headings

Section headings should be typed centered   on the page and in capital letters only. The type, fonts and style above   (Times New Roman 12 point bold) are an example of a section heading. Do not   underline section headings. A bold font should be used for section headings.   The headings should be numbered.

G. Subheadings

Subheadings should be positioned at the   left margin, in a bold-faced font the same size as the main text (Times New   Roman 12 point) with single line spacing above and below. The first letter of   each word in the subheading should be capitalized.

H. Sub-subheadings

Sub-subheadings should be typed using   italic font the same size as that used for the body of the text (Times New   Roman 12 point italics). Only the first letter in the subheading should be   capitalized. Note that a blank line precedes and follows the subheading.

I. Equations and Mathematical Expressions

Equation numbers should appear in   parentheses and be numbered consecutively. All equation numbers must appear   on the right-hand side of the equation and should be referred to within the   text. Two different types of styles can be used for equations and   mathematical expressions. They are:

      
  • In-line style
  •   
  • Display style.

In-line style

In-line equations/expressions are embedded   in paragraphs of the text. For example, E = mc2 . In-line   equations should not be numbered.

Display style

Equations in display format are separated   from the paragraphs of text. They should be flushed to the centered of the   column. Fractional powers should be used instead of root signs. A slash (/)   should be used instead of a horizontal line for fractions, whenever possible;   for example, use 2/3 for two-thirds. Refer to equations in the text as "   Eq.(1)" or, if at the beginning of a sentence, as " Equation   (1)". Vectors should be typed boldface. Do not use arrows, wavy-line   underscoring, etc.


  J. Figures and Tables

Figures (diagrams and photographs) should   be numbered consecutively using arabic numbers. They should be placed in the   text soon after the point where they are referenced. Figures should be   centered in a column and should have a figure caption placed underneath.   Captions should be centered in the column, in the format “Figure 1” and are   in upper and lower case letters. When referring to a figure in the body of   the text, the abbreviation "Figure" is used Illustrations must be   submitted in digital format, with a good resolution. Table captions appear   centered above the table in upper and lower case letters. When referring to a   table in the text, "Table" with the proper number is used. Captions   should be centered in the column, in the format “Table 1” and are in upper   and lower case letters. Tables are numbered consecutively and independently   of any figures. All figures and tables must be incorporated into the text (in   Portrait orientation).

K. Units

The use of SI units is strongly   recommended and mixed units are to be avoided.

L. Conclusion

A conclusion section must be included and   should indicate clearly the advantages, limitations and possible applications   of the paper. Discuss about future work.

M. Acknowledgements

An acknowledgement section may be presented   after the conclusion, if desired. Individuals or units other than authors who   were of direct help in the work could be acknowledged by a brief statement   following the text.

N. References

The APA format 6 edition referencing   system is to be used. In the body of the text a paper is to be referred to by   the author’s surname with the year of publication in parentheses. References   should be listed together at the end of the paper in alphabetical order by   author’s surname. List of references indents 10 mm from the second line of   each reference. Personal communications and unpublished data are not   acceptable references.

IN-TEXT CITATION

Document your study throughout the text by citing the author (or brief title if there is no author) and year of the works you researched. The reader can then locate the complete source in the alphabetical reference list at the end of your work. The in text citation is highlighted in this example:

One author

Rahman (2010) claimed that … or The theory was first put forward in 1960 (Rahman, 2010).

Two authors

Always cite both authors.

Example: Rahman and Noor (2009) found … or The majority found … (Rahman & Noor, 2009).

Multiple authors for 3-5 authors

Cite all authors the first time.

Rahman, Kadirgama, Noor and Rosli (2008) found that … or (Rahman, Kadirgama, Noor & Rosli, 2009).
