Article Types

The following article types are included in Science, Engineering and Technology:

  • Research Article: High quality scientific contributions that face the challenging research topics listed in the aim & scope section of the journal. These manuscripts 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 of the Original Research Paper should be clearly supported by the results. Original Research Papers should be prepared according to 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. Review Paper should include critical assessment of the works cited, explanations of conflicts in the literature, and 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 focussed 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.

Manuscript Submission

All manuscripts 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 manuscript: 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 manuscript and meet the criteria for authorship. The corresponding author who submits the manuscript should add all other authors in the correct order.

It is recommended that all authors provide an ORCID identifier during the manuscript 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 manuscript. 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 manuscript. Please provide e-mail addresses, area of expertise and information which will help the Editor to verify the identity of the reviewer (for example an ORCID, WoS/Scopus /Scholar url). Intentionally falsifying information, e.g. suggesting reviewers with a false name or e-mail address, will result in rejection of your manuscript 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 manuscripts go through a review process to ensure proper quality of the published papers. If a submission is considered appropriate and within journal scope, a peer-review process is initiated.

The manuscripts will be reviewed initially by the Editor and later by at least 2 reviewers who are experts/specialists in the respective fields. If necessary the number of reviewers can be increased by editor or editorial board.  Manuscript will only be sent to review if the Editor determines that it meets the appropriate quality and relevance requirements. The Editor will identify suitable reviewers and obtain their comments related to scope, type, size, quality, originality, referencing, clarity, and other criteria of the manuscript.   Based on comments, if necessary, the manuscripts will be sent to third reviewer for comments. The reviewers' recommendations determine editorial decision, e.g. whether a manuscript will be accepted / rejected or it needs minor / major revisions or submission for second round of review. Majority opinion will prevail. In special cases, the Editor will take the final decision. For manuscripts which require new review round, the editor can invite the same or different reviewers to ensure that the quality of the revised paper is acceptable. Editor reserves the right to reject any submission and to make suggestions and/or modifications before publication.

Main criteria for manuscript evaluation include:

  • Scope: All manuscripts are first evaluated by the Editor, either individually or in consultation with the Editorial Board member(s), to assess its suitability for the journal in line with the journal’s aims and scope. This is an important step to ensure that the content falls within the scope of the journal in terms of quality and/or impact on policy. Manuscripts that do not meet the journal’s expected standards are rejected with an explanation of reasons behind a desk-reject decision.
  • Originality: is the work scientifically rigorous, accurate and novel? Does the work contain significant additional material to that already published? Has its value been demonstrated? It 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: has reference been made to the most recent and most appropriate work? Is the present work set in the context of the previous work? Author(s) are responsible for ensuring that the information in each reference is complete and accurate. Bibliography should include an adequate references and recent contributions. References should be used according to required style.
  • Content Clarity: is the English clear and well written? Poorly written English may obscure the scientific merit of your paper. Are the ideas expressed clearly and concisely? Are the concepts understandable?
  • Conclusions: The evidence provided should justify the conclusions and the conclusions should be compelling enough to deserve rapid publication.
  • Other crtiteria include: objectives, manuscript structure, methods, value to readers, technical correctness, etc.
