Page margins are 1,78 cm top and  down; 1,65 cm left and right. Each column width is 8,89 cm and the separation between the columns is 0,51 cm. Authors are requested to use the font “Times New Roman”, with size for the abstract and references should be 8pt, and 10pt for the body of the manuscript


All tables and figures you insert in your document are only to help you gauge the size of your paper, for the convenience of the referees, and to make it easy for you to distribute preprints.


Authors should number citations consecutively in square brackets [1]. The sentence punctuation follows the brackets [2]. Multiple references [2], [3] are each numbered with separate brackets [1]–[3]. When citing a section in a book, please give the relevant page numbers [2]. In sentences, 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] shows ....” Unfortunately, the IIJE document translator cannot handle automatic endnotes in Word; therefore, type the reference list at the end of the paper using the “References” style, for example:

  • Al-Shabatat, A., Abbas, M. & Ismail, H. (2009). The Direct and Indirect Effects of the Environmental Factors on the Intellectual Giftedness. International journal of special education. 24 (3), 121-131.

Number footnotes separately in superscripts (Insert | Footnote).  Place the actual footnote at the bottom of the column in which it is cited; do not put footnotes in the reference list (endnotes). Use letters for table footnotes (see Table I).

Please note that the references at the end of this document are in the preferred referencing style. Give all authors’ names; do not use “et al.” unless there are six authors or more. Use a space after the authors' initials. Papers that have not been published should be cited as “unpublished” [4]. Papers that have been submitted for publication should be cited as “submitted for publication” [5]. Papers that have been accepted for publication, but not yet specified for an issue should be cited as “to be published” [6]. Please give affiliations and addresses for private communications [7].

Capitalize only the first word in a paper title, except for proper nouns and element symbols. For papers published in translation journals, please give the English citation first, followed by the original foreign-language citation [8].

Authors should consider the following points:

  • Technical papers submitted for publication must advance the state of knowledge and must cite relevant prior work.
  • The length of a submitted paper should be commensurate with the importance, or appropriate to the complexity, of the work. For example, an obvious extension of previously published work might not be appropriate for publication or might be adequately treated in just a few pages.
  • Authors must convince both peer reviewers and the editors of the scientific and technical merit of a paper; the standards of proof are higher when extraordinary or unexpected results are reported.
  • Because replication is required for scientific progress, papers submitted for publication must provide sufficient information to allow readers to perform similar experiments or calculations and use the reported results. Although not everything need to be disclosed, a paper must contain new, useable, and fully described information. For example, a specimen's chemical composition need not be reported if the main purpose of a paper is to introduce a new measurement technique. Authors should expect to be challenged by reviewers if the results are not supported by adequate data and critical details.
  • Papers that describe ongoing work or announce the latest technical achievement, which is suitable for presentation at a professional conference, may not be appropriate for publication in IIJE.
