The references should be listed alphabetically at the end of the paper. If references to the same author have the same year, they should be differentiated using 1980a and 1980b etc.
List and number all bibliographical references that have important contribution on the paper, (if possible, limit to 30, which only are necessary citations are recommended). 11-point Times New Roman, fully justified, 0.5 line-spaced, at the end of your paper.

Personal communications and unpublished work should not feature in the reference list but should appear in parentheses in the text. References must be verified by the author(s) against the original documents.

Citations in the text
Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Avoid citation in the abstract. Unpublished results and personal communications should not be in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication.

Citing and listing of web references
As a minimum, the full URL should be given. Any further information if known (author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.) should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or they can be included in the reference list.

List
References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters "a", "b", "c", etc., placed after the year of publication.

DOIs in References
The journal/publisher encourages authors to cite those items (journal articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, technical reports, working papers, dissertations, etc.) that have DOIs. When the cited items have DOIs, the authors should add DOI persistent links to the regular references. The DOI persistent links should be the last elements in the references. The persistent links should be active. Format of persistent link:http://dx.doi.org/+DOI (without “DOi:”)
Example of persistent link: http://dx.doi.org/10.1691/2.907581

The authors or editors may retrieve articles’ DOIs at: http://www.crossref.org/SimpleTextQuery/ You can open a free account, to start retrieving articles’ DOIs. CrossRef allows you check multiple references. Please read this webpage very carefully. Only articles with assigned DOIs can be retrieved through the above mentioned webpage.

11. Glossary and Appendix

Technical language should be accompanied by a comprehensive glossary of terms used. Entries in the glossary should be presented in alphabetical order. The glossary list should follow the Reference List.

Please be sparing in the use of appendices unless they are absolutely necessary, the appendixes should be numbered as, e.g. Appendix 1, Appendix 2, etc.

12. Author Privacy and Permissions Statement

Does your paper include material borrowed from another source? If so, you must cite the original source in your paper. In addition, you may need to secure permission to reuse the material. Below are listed the types of material that may require permission.

Figures and tables
This includes both figures and tables that are directly reprinted and those that have been adapted from previously published figures and tables.
Data
This applies only to data that are directly reproduced from another source; data that have been reanalyzed do not require permission.
Test items, questionnaires, vignettes, etc.
This applies mainly to items that are from copyrighted and commercially available tests (e.g., MMPI, Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, Stanford-Binet). Obtaining these permissions can be difficult and time-consuming, and a preferable alternative may be to reword or paraphrase those items so as not to duplicate the exact wording.
Long quotations
Each copyright holder has its own definition of fair use. It is your responsibility to determine whether the copyright holder requires permission for long quotations.
Photographs (and other images)
Photos and other images not created by the author as part of the study may be subject to permission requirements. Copyright ownership and permission status can be particularly difficult to establish for images downloaded from the Internet, but we cannot publish them without full documentation. There is no need to seek permission for images taken from a database whose purpose is the open dissemination of stimuli for academic research (e.g., the International Affective Picture System).
Photo releases
The subjects of photographs (if other than the authors) must give permission for publication if they are recognizable. This is done through a release letter. This is not an issue of permission to use copyrighted material, but permission to use someone’s likeness. If images have been taken from research databases, there is no need to seek a release.

Does your article contain material that has been reproduced or adapted from an IJEER publication? If it does not exceed IJEER’s fair use criteria, then you do not need to request permission from IJEER. Most other scholarly journals have adopted the same fair use guidelines as IJEER; however, it is the author’s responsibility to obtain the fair use guidelines for the relevant copyright holder to determine whether you need to secure permission. The use of a figure, table, test item, appendix, abstract, or similar work that was commercially copyrighted or published in a book requires permission. If permission is required, contact the copyright holder (usually the publisher) and request permission to reproduce or adapt the material in all formats (online as well as in print). When permission has been secured, forward the copyright holder’s letter with your manuscript. Permission can be secured via fax, mail, e-mail. Start this process early, as it may take several weeks. Your article cannot go into production until all permissions are secured for reproduced and adapted items. Regardless of whether permission is required, you must acknowledge the original source in your paper. Please include a full citation for each item that is reproduced or adapted from another source, including the page(s) on which is it found.

The names and E-mail addresses entered in this journal’s site will be used exclusively for the purposes of this journal and will not be made available for any other purpose or to any other party.
