To Rapid the review process, authors are required to submit the manuscript in
accordance with the format as in TEMPLATE
Once the manuscript and figures are comply with the format, it is ready to be submitted directly to the Online Submission System
The corresponding author should be familiar with the IJEERs’ editorial policies and is solely responsible for communicating with the journal and managing communication between coauthors. Before submission, the corresponding author ensures that all authors are included in the author list and agree with its order, and that they are aware the manuscript is to be submitted. For more information please review our Guide to Authors.
There are a number of reasons that we have adopted online submission and peer review systems for our journal. We make the decision to implement with the editorial team for the journal, dependent on the needs of that journal’s author community.
• As the whole process uses the Internet, it is faster than posting manuscripts around the world to the referees. For example, you will receive an automatic acknowledgement when you submit a manuscript
• As postal speed is no longer an issue, it is easier for international authors and referees to become a part of the journal’s community
• As an author, you can check on your paper’s progress while peer review takes place through your own log in
• Everything is managed and tracked online, so the whole process is logged and accountable
The whole process is designed to be simple for everyone involved
To submit a paper to IJEER, or check up on the progress with a submission follow the instructions below-
• The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration.
Although optional, the cover letter is an excellent opportunity to briefly discuss the importance of the submitted work and why it is appropriate for the journal. Please avoid repeating information that is already present in the abstract and introduction. The cover letter is not shared with the referees, and should be used to provide confidential information such as conflicts of interest and to declare any related work that is in press or submitted elsewhere.
The IJEER is flexible with regard to the format of initial submissions. Within reason, style and length will not influence consideration of a manuscript. If revisions are requested, the editor will provide detailed formatting instructions at that time. To facilitate the review process however, we strongly encourage you to incorporate the manuscript text and figures into a single pdf or Microsoft Word file.
Times New Roman; Size-16; Line Spacing: 1.15; Paragraph Spacing: Before paragraph-0.5 line; after paragraph-0.5 line; Center. Titles must fit on two lines in print (75 characters including spaces for Articles and 90 for Letters) and should avoid technical terms, abbreviations and active verbs.
Length of paper
Length of 3000-6000 words is preferred. But maybe longer if necessary.
Keep acknowledgements brief and do not include thanks to anonymous referees or editors, or effusive comments. Grant or contribution numbers may be acknowledged.
Materials & Correspondence: Indicate the author to whom correspondence and material requests should be addressed.
Each table should be accompanied by a short title sentence describing what the table shows. Further details can be included as footnotes to the table.
You must include a statement that specifies the individual contributions of each co-author.
These may only contain citations and should list only one publication with each number. Include the title of the cited article or dataset
It is noted that we are trying to fix a highly secured authors personal use account in our server to provide the best facilities to submit your manuscript. Before that please use this form for email submission and if there is any problem you faced while submitting online. You will get review report on your email from us.

To participate in double-blind peer review, please prepare your manuscript in a way that conceals the identities of all the authors.
Information to help prepare the Title Page
This should include the title, authors' names and affiliations, and a complete address for the corresponding author including telephone and e-mail address.
Please note that editors do not ensure that the paper is properly anonymized; that is the responsibility of the authors.
Information to help prepare the Blinded Manuscript
Besides the obvious need to remove names and affiliations under the title within the manuscript, there are other steps that need to be taken to ensure the manuscript is correctly prepared for double-blind peer review. To assist with this process the key items that need to be observed are as follows:
• Ensure there is no author information in the metadata of any of the files submitted, this is usually added automatically from the identity information on your computer. In many commonly used programs, for example, Word and Acrobat reader, author information is displayed (and can be edited) in the “File” tab, under “properties”.
• Use the third person to refer to work the Authors have previously undertaken, e.g. replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with “… has been shown before [Anonymous, 2007]” .
• Make sure figures do not contain any affiliation related identifier
• Do not eliminate essential self-references or other references but limit self-references only to papers that are relevant for those reviewing the submitted paper.
• Cite papers published by the Author in the text as follows: ‘[Anonymous, 2007]’.
• For blinding in the reference list: ‘[Anonymous 2007] Details omitted for double-blind reviewing.’
• Remove references to funding sources
• Do not include acknowledgments
• Remove any identifying information, including author names, from file names and ensure document properties are also anonymized.
Microsoft Office saves hidden metadata in your Office documents, including how long you’ve been working on them, the name of everyone who’s worked on the document, when the document was created and even previous versions of the document.
Before you publish Office documents publicly or send them to someone, you’ll probably want to check what hidden information the document contains and remove the sensitive data. This metadata can infringe on your privacy or be potentially embarrassing.
On Office 2013 or Office 2010, click the File menu, click Info and the Inspect Document tool will be front-and-center, informing you about the potentially sensitive information that the document contains. This information is more obvious than it is in older versions of Office, but it’s still easy to miss if you’re not aware Office adds this sensitive data to your documents.
On Office 2007, click the Office orb button on the ribbon, point to Prepare, and click Inspect Document.
To view the hidden metadata in the document, click the Check for Issues button, click Inspect Document, and choose the types of metadata you want to examine the document for. You can just leave all the options selected to examine the document for all types of metadata.
Click Inspect and Office will examine the document for metadata. Click the Remove All button next to a type of metadata to remove it.
Note that you won’t be able to recover most of this metadata after deleting it. For this reason, Microsoft recommends creating a new copy of the document (use the Save As feature) before removing the metadata and publishing the document. You’ll then have a copy of the document with the metadata. Of course, if you don’t want this metadata at all, you can just remove it without worrying about preserving a copy.
Office saves document properties including details like the author, subject, title, the date you created a document, when you last modified it, and how long you spent working on the document. These properties will also contain the name of any template you used while creating the document, email headers, and other related information. This can potentially be embarrassing — for example, you may send a TPS report to your boss and say you spent all day working on it alone. But the metadata could reveal that you only worked on the TPS report for a few minutes, collaborated with other people, and that you used a template named “Useless TPS Report Template” when creating it. Worse yet, there are other privacy implications here — you may want to publish a document on the web without your name associated with it, but your name will appear in the document’s properties by default.
Headers, footers, watermark, and text formatted as hidden text could also be included, but won’t appear if you do a cursory skim of the document. The tool tells you whether your document contains this information.
If you collaborated with other people while writing the document, it will contain even more data. The metadata will display the names of everyone who worked on the document as well as any comments, revision marks, ink annotations, and previous versions of the document. If you’re publishing a document you worked on, you’ll probably want to remove all this data rather than sharing it.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to use the Document Inspector tool to remove sensitive data from each individual document before you publish or share it with someone. There’s no built-in way to remove this information from multiple documents at once, nor is there an Office-wide setting to prevent Office from applying this data to documents.
However, you can have Office automatically remove the metadata every time you save a file. You must apply this setting to each document you use — it’s a document-specific setting, not a system-wide setting.
To prevent Office from saving metadata along with your documents, click the File menu, click Options, and select the Trust Center category. Click the Trust Center Settings button and select Privacy Options. Enable the “Remove personal information from file properties on save” option.
If it appears grayed out, click the Document Inspector button below, run the Document Inspector, and remove the entire document’s personal information. You should then be able to click the checkbox.
Remember, you’ll have to change this option this for each document separately.
This information can be useful, and some of it is even crucial for collaboration or for corporations to keep track of who worked on a document. But when it’s time to publish the document, you’ll probably want to remove this metadata.
