Research and Publication Ethics

Authorship of the paper
Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors.
The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.
Hazards and human or animal subjects
If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript. If the work involves the use of animal or human subjects, the author should ensure that the manuscript contains a statement that all procedures were performed in compliance with relevant laws and institutional guidelines and that the appropriate institutional committee(s) has approved them. Authors should include a statement in the manuscript that informed consent was obtained for experimentation with human subjects. The privacy rights of human subjects must always be observed.
Fundamental errors in published works
When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper. If the editor or the publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the obligation of the author to promptly retract or correct the paper or provide evidence to the editor of the correctness of the original paper.

Article structure

Manuscript must consist of as follow : (1)Title, (2)Author’s name, (3)Key word, (4)Abstract, (5)Nomenclature description, (6)Introduction, (7)Body(analysis, test, results and discussion, (8)Conclusion, (9)Acknowledgements, (10)Reference, (11)Appendix, etc.
A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract should be written in around 300 words and is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.
Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 5 or 6 keywords.
Use the international system units(SI). If other units are mentioned, please give their equivalent in SI.
All mathematical equations should be c1early printed/typed using well accepted explanation. Superscripts and subscripts should be typed clearly above or below the base line. Equation numbers should be given in Arabic numerals enclosed in parentheses on the right-hand margin. They should be cited in the text as, for example, Eq. (1), or Eqs. (1)-(3).
Tables should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. Each table should be typed on a separate sheet of paper and be fully titled. AII tables should be referred to in the text.
All the illustrations should be of high quality meeting with the publishing requirement with legible symbols and legends. In preparing the illustrations, authors should consider a size reduction during the printing process to have acceptable line c1arity and character sizes. All figures should have captions which should be supplied on a separate sheet. They should be referred to in the text as, for example, Fig. 1, or Figs. 1-3.
All references should be listed at the end of the manuscripts, arranged in order. The exemplary form of listed references is as follows :
  • 1) Single author : (Kim, 1998)
  • 2) Two authors: (Kim and Lee, 2000)
  • 3) Three or more authors: (Kim et al., 1997)
  • 4) Two or more paper: (Lee, 1995; Ryu et al., 1998)
References, including those pending publications in well-known journals or pertaining to private communications, not readily available to referees and readers will not be acceptable if the understanding of any part of any part of the submitted paper is dependent upon them. Single or two authors can be referred in the text; three or more authors should be shortened to the last name of the first author, like smith et al.
