Please submit, with the manuscript, the names, addresses and e-mail addresses of three-four potential experts as possible referees to the work. These persons should not have worked with you closely in recent past. Note that the editors retain the sole right to decide whether or not to use the suggested reviewers.
Authors must follow the guide for authors strictly, failing which the manuscripts could be rejected without review. Editors reserve the right to adjust the style to certain standards of uniformity.
Follow this order when preparing the manuscripts: Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgements, References, Figure Captions, Tables and Figures. The corresponding author (one only) should be identified with an asterisk and footnote. Email id of all the authors must be provided.
Use double spacing and wide (3 cm) margins on white paper. Avoid full justification, i.e., do not use a constant right-hand margin. Ensure that each new paragraph is clearly indicated. Each table and figure should be placed on separate pages at the end of the manuscript. Number all the pages consecutively, use 12-point Roman font throughout.
Maximum page length can be 35 and 45 pages (double space typed, Roman 12 font) for original article and review paper, respectively, including text, references, tables and figures. Each figure/table must be placed on separate page.
A concise and factual abstract is required. Each paper should be provided with an abstract of about 150-200 words. The abstract should state firstly the aim of the study and then give main results. Do not give any introductory remarks here and it should not contain any reference.
Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of five keywords.
Define abbreviations in the text itself on first appearance. Avoid any non-standard abbreviation, or give them as a separate section.
Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI). If other units are mentioned, please give their equivalent in SI.
Present simple formulae in the line of normal text where possible and use the solidus (/) instead of a horizontal line for small fractional terms, e.g., X/Y. In principle, variables are to be presented in italics. Powers of e are often more conveniently denoted by exp. Number consecutively any equations that have to be displayed separately from the text (if referred to explicitly in the text).
As far as possible, footnotes should be avoided. In the tables, indicate each footnote with a superscript lowercase letter
There can be a maximum of SIX figures in the article, which must be numbered. All photographs, schemas, graphs and diagrams to be referred to as figures. Ensure that each figure has a caption. Captions should be supplied separately on a page. Multiple figures can be expressed as one figure (for e.g. 1a, 1b, 1c, etc).The Journal discourages publication of simple one line graphs/figures, pattern figures, conventional spectra (X-ray, FTIR, UV, NMR, etc) and SEM photographs of a routine nature.
There can be a maximum of SIX tables in the article, which must be numbered. Heading should be placed above the table .Do not put vertical rules in the table. The Journal discourages publication of simple one parameter tables; such information should be preferably described in the text itself.
In the text, reference should be given by the names of authors and years in square brackets. Only essential references (from SCI journals only), which are directly referred to in the text, should be included in the reference list.
There can be maximum 40 and 100 references for the original and review articles, respectively.
• No non-English reference should be included.
Ensure that every reference cited in the text is present in the reference list (and vice-versa). Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text.
As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed. Any further information, if known (DOI, author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given.
Journal names should be abbreviated according to the List of title word abbreviations: http://www.issn.org/2-22661-LTWA-online.php.
After the acceptance of the article, the journal will publish the articles as soon as possible, both online and in print.
One set of page proofs (as PDF files) will be sent to the corresponding author by email. PDF proofs can be annotated for corrections, or you may list the corrections (including replies to the Query Form) and return them to Elsevier by email e-mail. Please list your corrections quoting line number. If, for any reason, this is not possible, then mark the corrections and any other comments (including replies to the Query Form) on a printout of your proof and return by fax, or scan the pages and send by e-mail. Please use the proof only for checking the typesetting, editing, completeness and correctness of the text, tables and figures. Significant changes to the article as accepted for publication will only be considered at this stage with permission from the Editor. Corrections must be returned within 48 hours.
The corresponding author, at no cost, will be provided with a PDF file of the article via e-mail. Paper reprint can be obtained on charge basis, which must be ordered at the time of proofs correction.
Upon acceptance of an article, authors will be asked to complete a 'Journal Publishing Agreement', which will be sent to the corresponding author for transferring the copyright to the International Society for Energy, Environmental and Sustainability. Authors will have rights to reuse the work for themselves or their institution with due citation for internal purposes. Permission must be sought to re-use it for external purposes.
