Author Guidelines

Submission Method

Click here to start a submission

Manuscript materials should be submitted to the journal only in the following manner. Alternatives cannot be routinely accommodated. For each submission, no more than one manuscript or article-text file should be uploaded. It’s optional to upload the supplementary files or not. Via the Journal's online manuscript submission system, upload cover letters, figures, files of the metadata, article text (including title, abstract, main text, appendices, references, tables, and list of figure captions), and supplementary files (optionally).
A metadata should specify authors, title, abstract, indexing, and any other requests. It will be required to entry the flowing information during the submitting process:
  1. Authors: Bylines should include all those who have made substantial contributions to the work. Make sure to enter name(s) of author(s) correctly and workable e-mail address(es).
  2. Title and abstract: The title and abstract should be the same with submission of Manuscripts.
  3. Indexing: Use the keywords of manuscripts to indexing the submission.

Unless otherwise stated, submission of a manuscript will be understood to mean that the paper has been neither copyrighted, classified, published, nor is being considered for publication elsewhere. The information about manuscript and supplementary files will be introduced in the following topics.
Authors of scientific publications in AUSMT are jointly responsible for their content. Credit for the content and responsibility for errors or fraud are borne equally by all authors. The submitting author is responsible for obtaining agreement of all coauthors and any consent required from sponsors before submitting a paper. AUSMT strongly discourage courtesy authorship. It is the obligation of the authors to cite relevant prior work.
Please send us suggestions of possible Reviewers. To help protect Reviewer’s anonymity, we ask for at least four full names, with full information on e-mail addresses and telephone number. The Reviewer selected by the Editor may, of course, not necessarily be from the list.
The Editor strongly prefers to correspond directly with the author, rather than through the reports division or through executives of the author’s laboratory. Manuscripts sent to authors for revision should be returned to the Editor within three weeks. A manuscript returned later than this will generally be regarded as newly submitted and will receive a new receipt date.

How to Prepare Your Manuscript
The Manuscript, including the abstract, references, and captions, should be set up for 21.6 x 28 cm (8-1/2 x 11 in. or A4) pages with ample margins. It should be carefully proofread by the author. The manuscript must be in good scientific American English; this is the author's responsibility. Number all pages in single sequence. Parts of the manuscript should be arranged in the following order: title, abstract, keywords, text and references. Papers should not be lengthened by unnecessary descriptions and repetitions, but neither should authors use a telegraphic style detrimental to the clarity and understanding of the paper.
The following sections give a brief overview of the main elements or structure of an article:

  1. Format: The preferred format is Portable Document Format (.pdf) or Word file (.doc or .docx). Once your manuscript has been accepted for publication, please provide us Word file for further editing.
  2. Language: Manuscripts must be in English. Both English and American spellings are acceptable.
  3. Title: Only a concise and informative title should be included.
  4. Abstract: A manuscript must include an abstract containing no more than 200 words. It should indicate the techniques used and summarize the most important results.
  5. Keywords: 3 to 6 keywords should be provided after the abstract.
  6. Footnotes: The use of footnotes is discouraged. Instead, they should be incorporated into the text.
  7. Text: Please use "Calibri" font style for any text, including text in the figueres, tables and equations. The only exception is for Greek alphabets. Use "Symbol" font style instead. Employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses).
  8. Figures: All figures should be cited in the text and numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. A caption of no more than 15 words should be provided. The preferred formats for figures are PNG and JPEG. The resolution of each figure should be set at 300 dpi. All figures should be placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  9. Tables: All tables should be cited in the text and numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. A title of no more than 15 words and a legend explaining any abbreviation used in that table should be provided. All tables should be placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  10. URL: All URL addresses in the text should be activated and ready to click.
  11. References: The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Make sure that the format of the reference list is in accordance with the IEEE styles, referring to http://www.ieee.org/documents/ieeecitationref.pdf. Except for that please provide full name of the journal title and conference name. There is no need to abbreviate. In addition, Authors are requested to add Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for each citation if available.

Copyright Notice

Copyright for articles published in this journal is retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the International Journal of Automation and Smart Technology. The copyright includes all material to be published as part of the article (in any medium), including but not limited to tables, figures, graphs and other multimedia files (collectively, the “Article”).

Author Right

  1. All proprietary right other than copyright, such as patent right.
  2. The right of nonexclusive, after publication by AUSMT, to give permission to third parties to republish print versions of the Article or a translation thereof, or excerpts therefrom, without obtaining permission from AUSMT, provided the AUSMT-prepared version is not used for this purpose, the Article is not published in another journal, and the third party does not charge a fee. If the AUSMT version is used, or the third party republishes in a publication or product charging a fee for use, permission from AUSMT must be obtained.
  3. The right to reuse any part of the Article, without fee, in future Articles of the Author’s own, including books, lectures and presentations in all media, provided that the AUSMT citation and notice of the Copyright are included.
  4. The right to revise copy AUSMT-copyrighted Article can be divided to two situations:
    If the new Article is substantially developed, it is considered a new derivative Article. The author owns the copyright in the new Article and must incorporate a citation to the previous Article.
    If the Article is a minor revision, copyright remains with AUSMT.
    To distinguish between a new derivative Article and a minor revision, AUSMT uses, respectively, a rule of greater than or less than 25% changed. Obviously, word counts are not an absolute measure. The author is in the best position to judge when an Article is merely revised or offers a significant new Article.
  5. The right to post and update the Article on free-access e-print servers as long as files prepared and/or formatted by AUSMT or its vendors are not used for that purpose. Any such posting made or updated after acceptance of the Article for publication shall include a link to the online abstract in the AUSMT journal or to the entry page of the journal. If the author wishes the AUSMT-prepared version to be used for an online posting other than on the author(s)’ website, AUSMT permission is required; if permission is granted, AUSMT will provide the Article as it was published in the journal, and use will be subject to AUSMT terms and conditions.

AUSMT Right

  1. AUSMT has the right to register copyright to the Article in its name as claimant, whether separately or as part of the journal issue or other medium in which the Article is included.
  2. AUSMT has the right to reproduce and distribute the Article, including reprints, translations, photographic reproduction, microform, electronic form (offline, online), or any other reproductions of similar nature.
