Abstract - This electronic document is the template for the manuscript for Journal of Engineering Technology and Applied Physics (JETAP). Do Not Use Symbols, Special Characters, Footnotes, or Math in Manuscript Title or Abstract.

Keywords—component, formatting, style, styling, insert (include up to 5 keywords)

I. Introduction (Heading 1)

Title should be typed using 24-Font size, Times New Roman. Author name(s) should be typed using 11-Font size, Times New Roman. Author(s) affiliation and address information should be Italic in 10-Font size, Times New Roman.

You are strongly encouraged to directly transfer your article into this document to ensure total compliance to the format. Margins, column widths, line spacing, and type styles are built-in; examples of the type styles are provided throughout this document and are identified in italic type, within parentheses, following the example. Some components, such as multi-leveled equations, graphics, and tables are not prescribed, although the various table text styles are provided.

II. Ease of Use

A. Selecting a Template (Heading 2)

This template has been tailored for output on the A4 paper size.

B. Maintaining the Integrity of the Specifications

The template is used to format your manuscript and style the text. All margins, column widths, line spaces, and text fonts are prescribed; please do not alter them. You may note peculiarities. For example, the head margin in this template measures proportionately more than is customary. This measurement and others are deliberate, using specifications that anticipate your manuscript as one part of the entire manuscript, and not as an independent document. Please do not revise any of the current designations.

III. Prepare Your Manuscript Before Styling

Before you begin to format your manuscript, first write and save the content as a separate text file. Complete all content and organizational editing before formatting.

Do not add any kind of pagination anywhere in the manuscript. Do not number text heads-the template will do that for you.

A. Abbreviations and Acronyms

Define abbreviations and acronyms the first time they are used in the text, even after they have been defined in the abstract. Do not use abbreviations in the title or heads unless they are unavoidable.

B. Text

Text includes Introduction, Literature Review, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussions, Acknowledgement, References etc. The body of the manuscript should be typed in double column (column width = 3.38 inches and column spacing 0.2 inches), single spacing, 10-Font size, Times New Roman, printed on one side of the sheet. Section headings should be typed in 10-Font size, Times New Roman, centered in the column with small cap effects and each of the word is capitalized. Sections should be numbered consecutively.

C. Units

  • Use SI (MKS) as primary units.
  • Spell out units when they appear in text: “. . . a few henries”, not “. . . a few H”.
  • Use a zero before decimal points: “0.25”, not “.25”.

D. Equations

The equations are an exception to the prescribed specifications of this template. You will need to determine whether or not your equation should be typed using either the Times New Roman or the Symbol font (please no other font). To create multileveled equations, it may be necessary to treat the equation as a graphic and insert it into the text after your manuscript is styled.

Number equations consecutively. Equation numbers, within parentheses, are to position flush right, as in (1), using a right tab stop. To make your equations more compact, you may use the solidus ( / ), the exp function, or appropriate exponents. Italicize Roman symbols for quantities and variables, but not Greek symbols. Use a long dash rather than a hyphen for a minus sign. Punctuate equations with commas or periods when they are part of a sentence, as in:

a + b  = c                                      (1)

Note that the equation is centered using a center tab stop. Be sure that the symbols in your equation have been defined before or immediately following the equation. Use “(1)”, not “Eq. (1)” or “equation (1)”, except at the beginning of a sentence: “Equation (1) is . . .”

IV. Using the Template

After the text edit has been completed, the manuscript is ready for the template.

A. Authors and Affiliations

Author names should be listed starting from left to right and then moving down to the next line. This is the author sequence that will be used in future citations and by indexing services. Names should not be listed in columns nor group by affiliation. Please keep your affiliations as succinct as possible (for example, do not differentiate among departments of the same organization). Indicate the corresponding author with the asterisk symbol as shown above.

B. Identify the Headings

Headings, or heads, are organizational devices that guide the reader through your manuscript. There are two types: component heads and text heads.

Component heads identify the different components of your manuscript and are not topically subordinate to each other. Examples include Acknowledgments and References and, for these, the correct style to use is “Heading 5”. Use “figure caption” for your Figure captions, and “table head” for your table title. Run-in heads, such as “Abstract”, will require you to apply a style (in this case, italic) in addition to the style provided by the drop down menu to differentiate the head from the text.

Text heads organize the topics on a relational, hierarchical basis. For example, the manuscript title is the primary text head because all subsequent material relates and elaborates on this one topic. If there are two or more sub-topics, the next level head (uppercase Roman numerals) should be used and, conversely, if there are not at least two sub-topics, then no subheads should be introduced. Styles named “Heading 1”, “Heading 2”, “Heading 3”, and “Heading 4” are prescribed.

C. Figures and Tables

Format and save your graphic images using a suitable graphics processing program that will allow you to create the images as PostScript (PS), Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), or Tagged Image File Format (TIFF), sizes them, and adjusts the resolution settings.

 Positioning Figures and Tables: Place figures and tables at the top and bottom of columns. Avoid placing them in the middle of columns. Large figures and tables may span across both columns. Figure captions should be below the figures; table heads should appear above the tables. Insert

(a)    figures and tables after they are cited in the text. Use the abbreviation “Fig. 1”, even at the beginning of a sentence.

Figure Labels: Use 8-Font size, Times New Roman for Figure labels. Use words rather than symbols or abbreviations when writing Figure axis labels to avoid confusing the reader. As an example, write the quantity “Magnetization”, or “Magnetization, M”, not just “M”. If including units in the label, present them within parentheses. Do not label axes only with units. In the example, write “Magnetization (A/m)” or “Magnetization {A[m(1)]}”, not just “A/m”. Do not label axes with a ratio of quantities and units. For example, write “Temperature (K)”, not “Temperature/K”.                

V. Conclusion

A conclusion to review the main points of the paper, do not replicate the abstract as the conclusion. A conclusion might elaborate on the importance of the work or suggest applications and extensions.


Appendixes, if needed, appear before the acknowledgment.


The contributions by all are acknowledged.


The template will number citations consecutively within brackets [1]. The sentence punctuation follows the bracket [2]. Refer simply to the reference number, as in [3]—do not use “Ref. [3]” or “reference [3]” except at the beginning of a sentence: “Reference [3] was the first ...”

Unless there are six authors or more give all authors’ names; do not use “et al.”. Manuscripts that have not been published, even if they have been submitted for publication, should be cited as “unpublished” [4]. Manuscripts that have been accepted for publication should be cited as “in press” [5]. Capitalize every word in a manuscript title.

For manuscripts published in translation journals, please give the English citation first, followed by the original foreign-language citation [6].
