Author Guidelines

  • Only registered users can submit manuscripts to ETASR. A user has to be registered as an Author in order to submit a manuscript.

  • To submit a paper follow the "New Submission" link in your user profile, next to "Author"

  • The standard manuscript length is six pages. However there is no page limit for papers submitted to ETASR.

  • Manuscript should be written in English and papers are generally consisted of title, author affiliation, abstract, keywords, introduction, body, conclusions and references. A paper may also include appendixes and an acknowledgement. The Abstract should be limited to 100-250 words and should concisely state the content of the paper.

  • Authors must use SI units and internationally recognized terminology and symbols.

  • A double column format is used. The font used is Times New Roman and a text size of  "10" is used for the main text body (see template for details). This format is rather familiar to authors since it is used in most conferences.

  • All graphics and figures in good quality should be attached directly in the body of the paper. Large figures can span both columns. Colour figures and pictures are accepted provided that they are of good quality.

  • References are cited in the text using brackets. They are listed under the "References" section, next to their number, in the order they appear in the text

  • An Author Profile section located at the end of the manuscript is optional but welcomed

Please download and follow our live template to format your manuscript. 

All instructions and styles are included in the template in order to help authors to achieve fast and easy formating.

If you experience any problems during the submission through our page (e.g. upload time-out in case of large files) please contact the editor here
