Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format not in PDF files. Conform to the standard of Melek IT journal template, and the text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines
- The length of the submitted paper is at least 12 pages and no more than 16 pages except for short report research. Editors will evaluate if a paper is needing more than 16 pages. Manuscripts are required to be written in a frame of length 23.5cm, width 16.5cm in the paper of A4 size.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- Abstract has a maximum of 300 WORDS; No citation; State in the abstract a primary objective, research design, methodology, main outcomes, and results, and conclusions. Section structure: Introduction - Method - Results and Discussion – Conclusion
- References expect a minimum of 20 references, especially with a minimum of 80% for journal papers published in the last ten years before the manuscript is submitted with a maximum of 20% of references cited from the web (such as Wikipedia, online newspapers). The reference uses tools such as Zotero, Mendeley, or EndNote for reference management and formatting, and has chosen the IEEE style.
This is the most common type of journal manuscript used to publish full reports of data from research. It may be called an Original Article, Research Article, Research, or just Article, depending on the journal. The Original Research format is suitable for many different fields and different types of studies. It includes full Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion sections.
The journal is welcome to collaborate with the conference organizers to publish papers that are accepted in their conferences that represent ideas related to the Melek IT journal. The Conference Papers (CFP) section will not be refereed and will be edited by the conference editor. The papers will appear as a special issue in this journal.
Review Articles provide a comprehensive summary of research on a certain topic, and a perspective on the state of the field and where it is heading. They are often written by leaders in a particular discipline after an invitation from the editors of a journal. Reviews are often widely read (for example, by researchers looking for a full introduction to a field) and highly cited. Reviews commonly cite approximately 100 primary research articles.
Methodologies or Methods
These articles present a new experimental method, test, or procedure. The method described may either be completely new or may offer a better version of an existing method. The article should describe a demonstrable advance on what is currently available.
Short reports or Letters
these papers communicate brief reports of data from original research that editors believe will be interesting to many researchers, and that will likely stimulate further research in the field. As they are relatively short the format is useful for scientists with results that are time-sensitive (for example, those in highly competitive or quickly-changing disciplines). This format often has strict length limits, so some experimental details may not be published until the authors write a full Original Research manuscript. These papers are also sometimes called Brief communications with 5 minimum pages.
