Author Guidelines


Publication Frequency and Language

The Journal publishes 4 issues per year without special subject volumes. Engineering Perspective only accepts manuscript submissions written in English.

Reviewing Process

Engineering Perspective uses Single-Blind Reviewing process. This means that the reviewer identities are concealed from the authors throughout the review process. Reviewers will not be influenced by the authors because reviewer anonymity allows for impartial decisions.  

PREPERATION

Submission for reviewing

A Title page that including manuscript title, authors names, affiliations and emails must be prepared. In the next page after title page, author names, affiliations and emails must not be given. The text of the manuscript must be prepared in two sided one column, 12 pt and double line spacing.  All pages must be numbered and continuous line numbering (except title page) must be used. Times new roman or any other readable font can be used for first submission format. Authors can use proper section titles and subtitles regarding the subject of the article. However, Abstract, Introduction, Materials and methods (or a relevant), Results and discussions and conclusions sections are mandatory for a research paper. The word number in abstract section must be 200-300. You can checked the sample submission document.

Manuscript format after acceptance

The accepted paper should be prepared in two columns. The main text of the manuscript must be written in Times New Roman, font 10, 12-point line spacing. The font size, line spacing, and margin of the template must not be altered. Authors can use template document to prepare the manuscript to submission.(Manuscript Template) . 

Main sections and subsections should be numbered consecutively. All of the references given at the end of the paper that listed consecutively should be cited in the main text with numerals in a square bracket [1, 2-5].

The paper is divided into three parts. The first part includes the title, author’s name, abstract, and keywords. The second part is the main body of the paper that includes the references and nomenclature. The third part is the author’s profile.

Sections must also be edited in double column. Tables and figures should be located at the top or bottom of the columns if possible. Tables should be prepared in font 9. If any table of figure is large than one column, figure or table can be located at the bottom or top of the page with one column. Figures must have at least 300 dpi resolution. Black and white or colored figures are acceptable. Each table and figure should be cited in the text.

References should be listed at the end of the paper in font 9. They should be numbered consecutively. While referring a journal paper, volume, number, page numbers and year must be given. Standart APA referencing style must be used in reference list. For more information about APA referencing style authors may check the link : https://www.mendeley.com/guides/apa-citation-guide  

 

Authors must declare that there is no conflict of interest in the study.

Authors should fill the "Acknowledgement" section to thank their funders.

Authors may have contributed in multiple roles.

This information must be provided after the authors' short bios.

The roles of authors may be classified as the followings, but not limited to:

Conceptualization          : Ideas; formulation or evolution of overarching research goals and aims.
Data curation                 : Management activities to annotate (produce metadata), scrub data and maintain research data (including                                                                               software code, where it is necessary for interpreting the data itself) for initial use and later re-use.
Formal analysis               : Application of statistical, mathematical, computational, or other formal techniques to analyze or synthesize                                                              study data.
Funding acquisition        : Acquisition of the financial support for the project leading to this publication.
Investigation                   :Conducting a research and investigation process, specifically performing the experiments, or data/evidence                                                              collection.
Methodology                  :Development or design of methodology; creation of models.
Project administration     :Management and coordination responsibility for the research activity planning and execution.
Resources                        :Provision of study materials, reagents, materials, patients, laboratory samples, animals, instrumentation, computing resources,                                              or other analysis tools.
Software                          :Programming, software development; designing computer programs; implementation of the computer code and                                                                   supporting algorithms; testing of existing code components.
Supervision                      :Oversight and leadership responsibility for the research activity planning and execution, including mentorship external to the                                                core team.
Validation                         : Verification, whether as a part of the activity or separate, of the overall replication/reproducibility of  results/experiments and                                               other research outputs.
Visualization                     :Preparation, creation and/or presentation of the published work, specifically visualization/data presentation.
Writing - original draft     : Preparation, creation and/or presentation of the published work, specifically writing the initial draft (including substantive                                                      translation).
Writing - review & editing  : Preparation, creation and/or presentation of the published work by those from the original research group,  specifically                                                        critical review, commentary or revision – including pre- or post-publication stages.
