Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted by the corresponding author of the manuscript at: editor.ijcrest@gmail.com

Manuscript Preparation

To speed up the review process, authors are requested to follow the format of the manuscript as per the below guidelines:

Article type:

Single Column

Manuscript organization:

1. All manuscripts are likely to be prepared as a single MS Word document (.docx, .doc) with the inclusion of full text, references, tables and figures. Any revised manuscripts prepared for publication should be sent as a single editable Word document.

2. Manuscripts must be written in English only. Title, author(s), and affiliations must be included on first page of the manuscript, followed by a 100-250 word abstract and 3-7 keywords. The arrangement of headings as follows: Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, etc.

3. All figures or photographs should be submitted as jpg or tif files with distinct characters and symbols at 300 dpi (dots per inch). Every care should be taken to avoid image versions of tables and equations. Tables must be edited with Word/Excel. Equations must be edited with Equation Editor. Figures, tables and equations should be numbered and cited as Fig.1, Fig.2, Fig.3, etc. in sequence irrespective of the heading.

4. Before submission, provide manuscript single spaced, and make all the characters in the text, tables, figure legends, footnotes and references in a single typeface and point size as 12 pt Times New Roman.

5. All references must be provided in square brackets in the text and listed in the REFERENCES section in the order they appear in the text.

Review Process

Manuscripts not following to author guidelines will be returned to authors without review. Submitted manuscripts following to guidelines will be reviewed by the Editor-in-Chief or an Editor, who will assign to reviewers. The review process is single blind. The Editor prepares a decision letter according to the comments of the reviewers, which is sent to the corresponding author. Decision of accept/reject will be communicated with in two weeks from the date of submission.

For the mutual benefit and protection of authors and publishers it is necessary that authors provide formal written consent to publish and transfer of copyright before publication of the work.

Proofs

Proofs will be sent to the corresponding author and should be returned within three days of receipt. Corrections should be restricted to typesetting errors. Authors are advised to check their proofs very carefully before return, since the inclusion of late corrections cannot be acceptable. Corrected proofs are to be returned to the publishers.

Publication Ethics Statement
