Guide for Authors

   GUIDE FOR ARTICLE PROCESSING CHARGES 


All articles published in Journal of Advanced Materials and Processing are open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made possible by an article-processing charge (APC) that covers the range of publishing services we provide. This includes provision of online tools for editors and authors, article production and hosting, liaison with abstracting and indexing services, and customer services. Therefore, publishing an article in the Journal requires review fee, 1,500,000 IR Rial and publication fee, 3,500,000 IR Rial, that will be billed to the corresponding author following the review or acceptance of an article for publication.

Attention:
It should be noted that any payment of Review and Acceptance fees through methods other than the online payment portal of the journal is not acceptable.
Also, to pay online through the journal payment gateway, you only need to use browsers other than Google Chrome, such as Firefox.

4-                  The abbreviation cannot be used by itself. A full written statement is required prior to it for the first time, the abbreviation is permitted afterward.

5-                  Keywords include distinct words that the research topic is concerned with and their number is up to 6.

 

2-                  From the third page onwards, list of symbols is inserted (if necessary): All symbols used in the text must be defined in the list of symbols. Number of equation or figure in which the symbol was first used and its unit should be written at the end of the line. List of symbols should be arranged as follows: first English then Latin symbols.

3-                  Text with proper segmentation, contains: Introduction, Experimental Procedure, Results and Discussion, and Conclusion in a numbered format with Times New Roman 11 font.

5-                  Abbreviations in the text must first be given in parentheses and then without parentheses.

Example: Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)

6-                  The units must be entirely written in accordance with SI along with a space after values. If there were several values with the same unit, it should only be written after the last one.

Example: 10, 20, 30, 40 oC

Example: two specimens of heat treatment, 15 kg of cement powder, 10 thermocouple, 5 glass dish

7-                  Figures and tables should be numbered consecutively in the order that they are cited in the text. If the figure is made up of several different parts, they must be marked with a, b, c, … letters on the figure and the referred letter in the text should be attached to the number.

Example: Figure 1, Table 2, Figure 1a, Figure 2a-b

All graphs, charts, drawings, diagrams, and photographs are to be referred to as Figures. Diagrams must be without framework but the graph itself must have a black framework with 1.25 pt thickness. Curves with 2 pt thickness and all of the points and symbols with 6 pt in size should be in black and white color. Colorful diagrams must be used only in the case of necessity. Numbers inside the diagrams and the titles of axes must be in a minimum size of 8 pt and maximum size of 10 pt. Width of the diagrams must be set up to 72 mm or the maximum size of 152 mm. Related images must be put together with 2 mm spacing. High quality images with minimum resolution of 300 dpi are appropriate.
