A Complete Guideline
All papers are subjected to a blind peer review process. Manuscripts are invited from academicians, research students, and scientists for publication consideration. Papers are accepted for editorial consideration through email firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com with the understanding that they have not been published, submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere. Papers accepted for publication may not be published elsewhere in the same form, either in the language of the paper or any other language, without the consent of the Editorial Board.
Author will receive online journal copy WITHIN 15 days after payment of publication charges and submission of copyright form.
Authors of accepted papers are requested to arrange charges of their papers at the rate of US$ 100 per article (Rs.1000 per article for Indian Authors), which will be invoiced, through the author, to the author's company, institute, or agency.
Manuscripts should be attached and sent to the Editor via e-mail. The file has to be written using the following software: MS-WORD, Tex or PDF format for IBM compatible computers.
A Transactions paper should not exceed 25 typeset, printed pages.
Order of parts
Title of article, authors' names, authors' institutional affiliations, abstract (200-300 words suitable for abstracting services), main text, tables (each starting with a caption) and figure captions, list of symbols and abbreviations (if necessary), numbered list of references, biographical sketch, and original figures.
The title of the paper should be concise and definitive (with key words appropriate for retrieval purposes).
Author Names and Affiliations
It is journal policy that all those who have participated significantly in the technical aspects of a paper be recognized as co-authors or cited in the acknowledgments. In the case of a paper with more than one author, correspondence concerning the paper will be sent to the first author unless staff is advised otherwise.
Author name should consist of first name, middle initial, last name. The author affiliation should consist of the following, as applicable, in the order noted:
- Company or college (with department name or company division)
- Postal address
- City, state, zip code
- Country name
- Telephone, fax, and e-mail
A short abstract (200-300 words maximum) should open the paper. The purposes of an abstract are:
- To give a clear indication of the objective, scope, and results of the paper so that readers may determine whether the full text will be of particular interest to them;
- To provide key words and phrases for indexing, abstracting, and retrieval purposes.
The abstract should not attempt to condense the whole subject matter into a few words for quick reading.
The references should be brought at the end of the article, and numbered in the order of their appearance in the paper. The reference list should be cited in accordance with the following examples:

The final decision on publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief upon recommendation of Editorial Board Members.
Each manuscript must be accompanied by a statement that it has been neither published nor submitted for publication, in whole or in part, either in a serial, professional journal or as a part in a book which is formally published and made available to the public. For the mutual benefit and protection of authors and publishers it is necessary that authors provide formal written consent to publish and transfer of copyright form before publication of the work.
Proofs will be sent to the corresponding author and should be returned with one week of receipt. Corrections should be restricted to typesetting errors; any other corrections may be charged to the authors. Authors are advised to check their proofs very carefully before return, since the inclusion of late corrections cannot be acceptable. Corrected proofs are to be returned to the publishers.
