Author Guidelines

JTEP publishes all aspects in the original research of agricultural engineering. All submissions are reviewed by one of the editor and at least two reviewers.  The JTEP uses anonymous reviewing, in which the identities of authors and reviewers are kept confidential (“blind reviewer”).

Type of Papers
Original papers (regular papers) should report the results of original research.  Submission of a manuscript to this Journal represents a certification on the part of the author(s) that it is an original work, and that neither this manuscript nor a version of it has been published elsewhere no is being considered for publication elsewhere.  Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher.

Preparation of Manuscripts

Manuscripts format: Before preparing the manuscript, consult carefully the layout of one of the latest issue of JTEP. Manuscripts should be prepared with numbered lines and written in 12 point Time New Roman font double space in A4 paper. Margin on all four sides are 2 cm throughout, i.e. also for abstracts, footnotes and references. Every page of the manuscript, including the title page, references, tables, etc. should be numbered.  Figures and tables are grouped and put at the end of the manuscript (after the References). The article should be typed in paper length of 15-20 pages, approximately 5000 words.   To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the ‘spellchecker’ function of your wordprocessor.

Manuscript sections are written in this order:

  1. First page (cover sheet): date of submission, name of author(s) and institution(s), address, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail address, title of manuscript, number of text pages, number of tables, number of figures, number of photographs, running title (less than 50 letters including space between words), and reprint order.

  3. An abstract: Summarizing a clear introduction of two or three sentences mentioning background of the research, aim of the study, the experiments described, the main results and the conclusions. Give one or two sentence(s) to discuss the finding(s) or prospective(s).   It should not exceed 200 words which has no reference and be followed by keywords (not more than five words or phrases arranged in alphabetical order).
  4. Introduction: Write down the background of the research and mention the previous studies that had been done.  State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background.
  5. Materials and Methods: The method section need to be detailed enough to allow reviewers to answers following questions: (i) Are the methods described in sufficient detail so that the study can be replicated?, (ii) Is the research an experimental or exploration?, (iii) If your research uses the previous researched method, please described briefly that method. If you make any modification, described the modified part.
  6. Results and Discussion: Results should be clear and concise. State the obtained results based on the used methods.  Do not present same data in both  table and graph format.

Explain why your result(s) is coming to be. 
  7. Conclusions: The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.

  9. References: All published works referred to in the text should be presents in a list of references and arranged alphabetically by the author without serial numbering. Manuscripts are written by using standard citation application (Mendeley/Endnote/Zotero). APA (American Psychological Association) reference style is required. The author year system is used in the text.  Use the list of periodicals indexed in Chemical Abstracts for abbreviation of journal names: If there is any doubt, give the full name of the periodical. They should be referred to in the text by the name(s) of the first author and the year of publication in parentheses, using the following format: (Jordano and Godoy 2002) or Jordano and Godoy (2002).  Use the first author‘s name and “et al.” when there are more than two authors.  The order for references within parentheses in the text should be types start from the oldest year (Cobo et al. 2002; Kwabiah et al. 2003; Lupwayi et al. 2005). If the references have the same year, place them alphabetically.  For works by the same author(s) in the year, append a lowercase a, b, c, etc. to the year of publication.
