::: Instruction to Authors


JOURNAL OF Applied SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING (JASE) is included in COMPENDEX PLUS (EI) and SCOPUS, accepting original research articles in all disciplines of science and engineering. Manuscripts are submitted through Online Submission & Peer Review Service for review with the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere. The author(s) will be responsible for proofreading the paper. All copyright ownership of the paper will belong to the Journal once it is published. Additional reprints can be purchased if ordered.  JASE-Template Download

3.     General. Manuscripts must be in double-spaced one column format with wide margins. A font size of 12 pt is required. To facilitate the review process continuous line numbers should be inserted in the text of the manuscript.

4.     Paper Length. The Editors generally encourage brevity for all Research Papers. Research papers should not exceed 7000 words. Word counts include text, references, figures and tables. Each figure or table should be considered equal to 300 words.

5.     File format. PDF is the only acceptable format.

6.     Manuscript Title page. Including: title and all contact details of the authors (Institution, Full postal address, Fax number and E-mail address) with the corresponding author identified.

7.     Abstracts. Abstracts should not exceed 250 words, and should not contain any references.

8.     Keywords. 4-6 keywords must be included on a separate line below the main abstract. Avoiding key words already used in the title to optimize searching.

Words, numbers, and symbols should be large and clear enough to remain legible when the figure is reduced to column width (approx. 8 cm). Each table should have a brief, concise title, and indicate units clearly.

11.  Equations and Mathematical Formulas. Equations should be typed and numbered serially on the right-hand side by Arabic numerals in parentheses, and camera-ready. Superscripts and subscripts should be indicated clearly.

12.  Nomenclature. All symbols and units, English and Greek, should be indicated of their meaning and dimensions in the text and/or in a list in alphabetical order.

15.  Extra Page Charge Policy. To help defray the rising cost of publication and improve the quality of JASE, some page charge is required for publishing accepted papers.

n    The first 8 proof pages including figures, tables and others of each manuscript are provided free of charge

   after July 1, 2016. Two hardcopies of JASE and the PDF file will be respectively sent to the corresponding

   author after the official publication.


n   For the subsequent pages after eight, author(s) will be asked to pay an Article Publication Fee to cover

   publications costs. Each extra page will be charged for US $65/per page or NTD $2000/per page.

n  If the authors do not have funds to cover such fees, they need to shorten their paper’s length in time.
