Author Guidelines

Review process

  1. Submissions
    The International Journal of Robotics, Automation and Sciences (IJORAS) is welcoming contributions related with the journal's scope. In general, decisions will be made after peer-review, within 3 months of receipt. Accepted articles will generally be published within 9 months thereafter.
    Manuscripts (in a single PDF, PDF only) should be submitted to the IJORAS Submission System: https://www.mmu.edu.my
  2. Types of Submissions
    IJORAS considers two types of submissions:
    Full Papers - Detailed discussion involving new research, applications or developments (up to 20 printed pages, or approved by Editor-in-Chief otherwise);
    Short Papers - Brief presentations of new technical concepts and developments (up to 8 printed pages, or approved by Editor-in-Chief otherwise).
  3. Peer Review Process
    Authors have the full responsibility to ensure that manuscripts submitted to IJORAS have not been published, have not been copyrighted, and will not be submitted or published elsewhere in English or any other language. The author(s) agrees that the copyright (copyright-from) for the article will be transferred to the publisher upon acceptance. The Editors reserve the right to decline the submitted manuscript without review, if the works reported are not sufficiently novel or important to merit publication in the journal, or of limited interest to the target audience. The Editor seeks advice from experts in the appropriate field. A minimum of two reviewers or three in case of inconsistent recommendations referees all manuscripts. The final decision of acceptance will be made by Executive Editor or, in case of conflict, by the Editor-in-Chief.
  4. Proofs:
    Proofs of the accepted article will be sent electronically to the corresponding author and the should be returned within two weeks of the receipt. Corrections should be restricted to typesetting errors only; any other corrections may be charged to the authors. At this stage, only minor changes can be accepted, and any changes should be marked in the proof file and renamed it as (‘Edited’) then send it back to IJORAS.
    No late or last-minute corrections will be accepted.
  5. Manuscript Layout
    Manuscripts should be typewritten in English on one side only with wide margins on high quality paper using single spacing throughout. Each page of the manuscript should be numbered. The front page should contain the article title, author's name and affiliation, abstract and keywords. The abstract should not exceed 200 words and should be intelligible to general readers without recourse to the main text. A list of notation should be avoided, but new notation and departures from standard use should be explained in text.
    Articles should, in general, begin with an introduction, which adequately covers the literature and scope of the paper. Each section in the paper should be numbered. Each article should have, in general, a conclusion or discussion section. Any appendices should follow the Reference section.
  6. Illustrations
