Author Guidelines

GENERAL

Journal of Applied Membrane Science & Technology provides a continuous forum for the dissemination of thoroughly peer-reviewed, fundamental, and applied research on membrane science and technology. Preference is given to contributions that offer new and comprehensive concepts, interpretations, experimental approaches, and results.

Please use the Journal of Applied Membrane Science & Technology TEMPLATE provided in this SUBMISSION PACKAGE. Each submission must include:

i. Manuscript in Journal of Applied Membrane Science & Technology Template.

ii. COPYRIGHT TRANSFER AGREEMENT (CTA) as a supplementary file.

You can also refer to our guide on how to submit here.

 

PREPARATION OF MANUSCRIPT

General: Manuscript must be an original work that has not been published or under consideration for publication elsewhere. The journal welcomes manuscripts clearly written in English.

Title: Manuscript should be headed by a concise title. Please include the full name of the author(s), complete mailing address, telephone, and fax numbers as well as an email address. In case of multiple authorship, please indicate the main author to whom all correspondence concerning the paper should be directed.

Abstract: Manuscript should be accompanied by an abstract (not more than 200 words) and five relevant keywords. The abstract should state the rationale, objectives, findings, and conclusions of the manuscript.

Style: As far as possible, manuscripts should consist of the following sections: Introduction, Methods/Theory, Results and Discussions, and Conclusions.

Tables: All tables should be kept simple and clear, and should be referred to in the text. They should be numbered by Arabic numerals, titled, and typed using double spacing. All tables should also be printed on separate pages in the order in which they are referred to in the text.

Illustrations: Illustrations including diagrams and graphs should be sharp, noise-free, and of good contrast. They should accompany the manuscript on separate sheets and numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals, in the same order as they are referred to in the text. Line drawings should be in black ink on a white background and the lettering size must be large enough to permit legible reduction whenever necessary. Please supply one original copy, suitable for direct reproduction plus two additional copies. Number all figures on the front and all photos on the back and add the author's name. Indicate the top of all photographs and figures when there may be doubt. All photographs must be glossy prints. Supply a list of captions on a separate sheet. Size figures for a two or three–fold reduction. Color illustrations can be produced at the author's expense.

Nomenclature, symbols, and abbreviations:
In general, the recommendations of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) should be followed. SI units and units related to the SI system (C, bar, h, min, etc) can be used, but other units should be avoided (eg. Atm, cal, Ci, F, psi, tonne, Torr). Only widely accepted symbols and forms of abbreviation should be used, but always give the full expression followed by the abbreviation the first time it appears in the text. Abbreviations and symbols used in tables and figures should be explained in the legends. The use of chemical symbols in the text should be avoided as much as possible as they disrupt the flow of the sentence as well as the appearance of the typeset page. Complicated chemical compounds can, for the sake of simplicity, be indicated by their chemical formulae, but at least elements and everyday compounds such as water, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane, ethane, ethane, ammonia, formaldehyde, acids, alcohols, etc. should be indicated by their full name (except in long lists). In no case should a combination of symbols and words (eg. Li oxide) be used. Hydrogen isotopes should preferably be indicated as 2H or 3H, rather than as D or T. Use of the trivial names ˜paraffins and olefins should be avoided, alkanes and alkenes should be used instead. 

Acknowledgments (if any): A brief acknowledgment of not more than 50 words should be included at the end of the manuscript, before the list of references.

References: References should appear in a separate Reference Section at the end of the manuscript, typed double spaced in the order of item referred to in the text using numerals in square brackets. Abbreviate according to the ˜Bibliographic Guide for Editors & Authors, 1974 (Chemical Abstract Service, The Ohio State University, OH 43210). Note the following examples:
