Guide for Authors

Authors are requested to submit their papers by e-mail to the Editor-in-Chief  at Submission of paper(s) to the journal implies that it has not been previously published, nor is it under consideration elsewhere. Papers submitted to the journal are peer-reviewed, and in this process, the author may be asked to revise and resubmit the manuscript according to the comments made by the reviewer(s). It is the responsibility of the authors to obtain written permission from the publishers for use of any previously printed material in their paper. The journal considers for publication: (i) invited papers from experts discussing the latest trends in a specialized area, (ii) original research papers and (iii) application-oriented papers.

Manuscript Specifications: Manuscripts must be typed in 12 pt font with double line spacing on A4 size paper with wide margins. Paper length should not exceed 25 pages in the typed format, inclusive of figures and tables, and must have the following format:

Title: Title page must contain (i) the title (which must be short and contain words useful for indexing), (ii) the initial(s) and name(s) of the author(s) and the name and address of the institution where the work was done, (iii) e-mail ID, and (iv) a brief running title of not more than 60 letter spaces.

Abstract must be informative and not just indicative, and must contain the significant results reported in the paper.

Keywords, not more than ten in number, must be provided for indexing and information retrieval.

Technical Contents: The text must be divided into sections, generally starting with Introduction; and ending with Conclusions. The main sections should be numbered 1, 2 etc., subsections 1.1, 1.2 etc., and further subsections (if necessary) 1.1.1, l.2.1 etc.


Tables and Figures: Tables and figures are to be numbered in consecutive numerical order in the paper. They should be self-contained and have a descriptive title. Do not place figure title within the figure, type it below the figure; type table caption above the table. For figure labels, use Times Roman font, except in case of Greek symbols where use of SymbolProp BT font is recommended. Line drawings, graphs, charts, photos and gray scale diagrams will be scanned electronically for final production, and should be original proofs and not photocopies. All line drawings and photos should be in black and white (for color graphics, authors will be charged at printings costs). Line drawings must be in India ink on good quality tracing paper or Bristol board, preferably of the same size as the text paper. Lines should be suficiently thick (axes about 0.3 mm, curves about 0.6 mm). All letterings on the illustrations must be done in lower case letters except for symbols or acronyms. The printout should be 600 dpi for line art; 220 dpi for figures with grayscale shading and black and white photographs; and 300 dpi for color graphics. Graphics may be submitted in TIFF/PS/EPS formats; CorelDraw/Adobe illustrator files are also acceptable. A list of symbols must be provided, with each symbol identified typographically (e.g. Gk, alpha, script oh, Latin ell etc.) for the printer; this list will not appear in print. Authors may if necessary provide another list of symbols for the reader (to be printed).


Mathematical material: Equations must be written clearly, each on its own line, well away from the text but punctuated to read with it. Complicated expressions should be avoided in the text; when absolutely necessary they should be displayed separately like equations. All equations must be numbered consecutively in arabic numerals with the number in parentheses near the right hand margin. Superscripts and subscripts (which must be indicated with vee and wedge respectively) must be kept as simple as possible; those of greater than second order (e.g. subscript on superscript on superscript) must be avoided. Similarly, symbols or letters with accents or unusual marks placed above or below them must be avoided. 'Oh' and 'zero', K, k and kappa, 'ell and 'one'; etc. must be clearly distinguished. Authors must indicate in pencil in the margin wherever special characters (Greek, German, script, scalar, vector, tensor, matrix etc.) are required. All other mathematical letter-symbols will be set in italic type. Vectors must be underlined by a wavy line and tensors by two wavy lines. Units and associated symbols must invariably follow SI practice.

References: A numbered list of references sorted alphabetically by last name of the first author must be provided at the end of the paper. In the text, citations of references should be given as numbers (corresponding with the reference list at the end) in square brackets placed in superscript position at the appropriate context. Author names need not be mentioned in the text unless it is relevant to the text. Do not give dates of references in the text. A detailed style for references is available at, and authors are required to strictly adhere to the format specified.


Electronic submission: The final manuscript after acceptance is to be submitted in an electronic format. Please do not submit PostScript and PDF files. Manuscripts may be submitted as word document. Manuscripts prepared in TeX, LaTeX are also welcome. In this case, please include all the macros or definitions that are required to produce the document in one file.
