Article Types

Science, Engineering and Technology accepts the following article types:

  • Research Article: High-quality scientific contributions that face the challenging research topics listed in the aim & scope section of the journal. These article should present well-rounded studies reporting innovative advances that further knowledge about a topic. They might include new results and discoveries on those topics or short surveys/tutorials. The conclusions for this article type should be supported by the results. Authors are encoured to use a standard format called IMRAD (Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, and Discussion). 
  • Review Article: Review Articles provide a comprehensive summary of research on a certain topic, and a perspective on the state of the field and where it is heading. The review article should include a critical assessment of the works cited, explanations of conflicts in the literature, and an analysis of the field. The conclusion must discuss in detail the limitations of current knowledge, future directions to be pursued in research, and the overall importance of the topic.
  • Case Study: Articles focus on the description of experimental demonstrators and use cases, which are relevant to our aim & scope. A goal of Case Studies is to make other researchers aware of the possibility that a specific phenomenon might occur.

Article Submission

Article should be submitted using the online submission service by following the instructions given on the submission website. The following link contains a video tutorial for submitting a article: link. If you experience difficulty uploading large files, please contact the editorial office for assistance.

The corresponding author must ensure that all authors have seen and approved the article and meet the criteria for authorship. The corresponding author who submits the article should add all other authors in the correct order.

It is recommended that all authors provide an ORCID identifier during the article submission process. Entering your ORCID ID at submission will help identify you and distinguish you and your academic work from others. If you do not already have an ORCID ID, you can register at www.orcid.org

Conflict of Interests

The Science, Engineering and Technology journal requires that all authors disclose any potential sources of conflict of interest. Any interest or relationship, financial or otherwise that might be perceived as influencing an author's objectivity is considered a potential source of conflict of interest. These must be disclosed when directly relevant or directly related to the work that the authors describe in their article. The existence of a conflict of interest does not preclude publication. If the authors have no conflict of interest to declare, they must also state this at submission. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to review this policy with all authors and collectively to disclose with the submission all pertinent commercial and other relationships.

Suggesting potential reviewers

It is recommended that you suggest potential reviewers for your article. Please provide e-mail addresses, areas of expertise, and information that will help the Editor to verify the identity of the reviewer (e.g. link to ORCID/WoS/Scopus/Scholar profile). Intentionally falsifying information, e.g. suggesting reviewers with a false name or e-mail address, will result in the rejection of your article and may impact future submissions. You can use the "Comments for the Editor" option or upload a document to recommend potential reviewers.

Peer Review

Science, Engineering and Technology journal operates under a double-blind peer-review model. All submitted article go through a review process to ensure the proper quality of the published articles. If a submission is considered appropriate and within the journal's scope, a peer-review process is initiated.

Some of the most important criteria for evaluating the acceptance of an article are:

  • Scope: Is the article relevant to the topics of the Journal? This is an important step to ensure that the content falls within the scope of the journal in terms of quality and publication ethics. Articles that do not meet the journal’s expected standards are rejected with an explanation of the reasons behind a desk-reject decision.
  • Originality (Novelty): Is the work scientifically rigorous, accurate, and novel? Does the work contain significant additional material to that already published? Has its value been demonstrated? The article should be innovative and answer an important question within the field. Ideally, it should also have the potential for implications outside of the field. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. 
  • Referencing: Does the article include sufficient and recent literature? Does the article contain a detailed literature survey? Are all the references used in the article listed in the bibliography and vice versa? Are the references used in the correct order? The author (s) are responsible for ensuring that the information in each reference is complete and accurate. The bibliography should include adequate references and recent contributions. References should be used according to the required style.
  • Abstract: Is the abstract sufficient length, and is it well-structured and well-written? The article should have a self-contained, citation-free abstract that succinctly summarizes the objectives, the methodology employed, the main findings, and the principal results of the study. Also, the abstract should present a brief and factual account of the content and conclusions of the article. Do not include figures, tables, equations, or references to other parts of the article or the reference listing at the end. The Abstract, Acknowledgement, and References are not included in the section numbering. Do not use any subheadings or point lists within the abstract. Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. Each article should contain an abstract section within 150-250 words in a single paragraph.
  • Introduction: Is the Introduction well-written and well-structured? In the Introduction, the authors need to state the objectives of the article and provide adequate background information. Authors must ensure to describe the problem and objectives as clearly as possible. This section should clearly explain the nature of the topic, previous research, purpose, and contributions. The Introduction should state the reason for the study, with a brief reference to previous work on the subject. The subject of the article should be thoroughly reviewed, and the aim (goal) of the article should be clearly stated immediately after discussing the basic references. 
  • Content clarity: Is the discussion part of the article well-structured and well-written? Are the ideas expressed clearly and concisely? Are the concepts understandable? 
  • Conclusions and results: Is the Conclusion well-written and well-structured? The evidence provided should justify the conclusions and the conclusions should be compelling enough to deserve rapid publication. The conclusion section contains the most important outcome of the article that has been drawn from the results and subsequent discussion. In the Conclusion, the author concisely presents scientific postulates on the subject matter and gives recommendations for further research. 
  • Value to Readers: Does the article contains some contributions to the scientific or professional area/discipline? 
  • Figures and tables: Are figures and tables numbered and contain descriptive titles? Are all figures and tables referenced and explained in the text? Are the figures and tables clear? Figures and tables should be numbered properly with descriptive titles. The figure caption shall be concise and placed below the figure while the table caption shall be placed above the table. They have to be numbered consecutively and appear by order for ease of discussion and reference in the text. Thus, figures/tables must be explained within the text by referring to the corresponding figure/table number. 
  • Grammar: Is the English clear and well-written? Are terminology, style, and language adequate? Poorly written English may obscure the scientific merit of the article. 
  • Other criteria include the article title, objectives, article structure, methods, technical correctness, keywords, etc.
