Instructions for Authors

The International Journal of Smart Electrical Engineering (IJSEE) is an open access journal that provides rapid publication (Seasonally) of articles in all areas of the subject.  The Journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence. Papers will be published approximately one month after acceptance. Electronic submission of manuscripts is strongly encouraged, provided that the text, tables, and figures are included in a single Microsoft Word file (preferably in Times New Roman font). Submit manuscripts as e-mail attachment to the Editorial Office at: or or

A manuscript number will be mailed to the corresponding author same day or within 72 hours. The cover letter should include the corresponding author's full address and telephone/fax numbers and should be in an e-mail message sent to the Editor, with the file, whose name should begin with the first author's surname, as an attachment. The authors may also suggest two to four reviewers for the manuscript (IJSEE may designate other reviewers). The International Journal of Smart Electrical Engineering (IJSEE) will only accept manuscripts submitted as e-mail attachments.

It is not allowed to have more than two submitted papers in one time, including papers with different coauthors. During the submission process, the corresponding author has to insert all names of coauthors keeping the order of names in the same way as it is in the submitted PDF file. Note that the changes of names or orders of names and the changes of the corresponding author will not be done after accepting a paper.


Review Process

All manuscripts are reviewed by an editor and members of the Editorial Board or qualified outside reviewers. Decisions will be made as rapidly as possible, and the journal strives to return reviewers’ comments to authors within 3 weeks. The editorial board will re-review manuscripts that are accepted pending revision. It is the goal of the IJSEE to publish manuscripts within 8 weeks after submission.


Manuscript template

All portions of the manuscript must be typed Single-spaced and all pages numbered starting from the title page. The Title should be a brief phrase describing the contents of the paper. The Title Page should include the authors' full names and affiliations, the name of the corresponding author along with the E-mail address. 

The Abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, briefly present the topic, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and conclusions. The Abstract should be 100 to 200 words in length. Complete sentences, active verbs, and passive sentences should be used, and the abstract should be written in the past tense. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided. No literature should be cited.  

Following the abstract, about 3 to 10 key words that will provide indexing references should be listed. A list of non-standard Abbreviations should be added. In general, non-standard abbreviations should be used only when the full term is very long and used often. Each abbreviation should be spelled out and introduced in parentheses the first time it is used in the text. Only recommended SI units should be used.

The Introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, and the proposed approach or solution. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

Materials and methods should be complete enough to allow experiments to be reproduced. However, only truly new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited, and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Capitalize trade names and include the manufacturer's name and address. Subheadings should be used. Methods in general use need not be described in detail.

Results should be presented with clarity and precision. The results should be written in the past tense when describing findings in the authors' experiments. Previously published findings should be written in the present tense. Results should be explained, but largely without referring to the literature. Discussion, speculation and detailed interpretation of data should not be included in the Results but should be put into the Discussion section.

The Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained in this and in past studies on this topic. State the conclusions in a few sentences at the end of the paper. The Results and Discussion sections can include subheadings, and when appropriate, both sections can be combined.

The Acknowledgments of Organizations, people, grants, funds, etc should be brief.

  • Expressing respect and appreciation in an appropriate fashion for each and every contribution and avoiding artificial or excessive flattery.
  • Using the complete names and preferred name formats for individuals, funding agencies, libraries, businesses and other organizations.
  • Acknowledging contributions to your research and paper in the order that best represents the nature and importance of those contributions.

Tables should be kept to a minimum and be designed to be as simple as possible. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in English numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. The details of the methods used in the experiments should preferably be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph form or repeated in the text.

Figure legends should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet. Graphics should be prepared using applications capable of generating high resolution GIF, TIFF, JPEG or PowerPoint before pasting in the Microsoft Word manuscript file. Tables should be prepared in Microsoft Word. Use English numerals to designate figures and upper-case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.

References: Number citations consecutively in square brackets [1]. The sentence punctuation follows the brackets [2]. Multiple references [2], [3] are each numbered with separate brackets [1]–[3]. When citing a section in a book, please give the relevant page numbers. In sentences, refer simply to the reference number, as in [3]. Do not use “Ref. [3]” or “reference [3]” except at the beginning of a sentence. References must be written in the following form:

Repository Policy:

Author Self-Archiving Policy

As IJSEE is an Open Access journal authors are entitled to make their article publicly available according to the terms of the CC BY license:

  • CC BY-NC
  • Authors who have published under a  CC BY-NC 4.0 license may share and distribute their article on non-commercial websites and repositories.

Re-use guidelines for open access content:

When posting, distributing or reusing Open Access articles, the journal should be clearly attributed as the original place of publication and correct citation details should be given. Authors should also deposit the URL/DOR of their published article in any repository, in addition to the Version of Record. When making their article available according to the terms of their Open Access license, we strongly encourage authors to deposit the Version of Record. This will guarantee that the definitive version is readily available to those accessing your article from such repositories and means that your article is more likely to be cited correctly.

As there are many ways you can share the different versions of your article as it moves through the stages towards publication a summary is provided as follows.

Author’s Original Manuscript (AOM):

Your original manuscript before you submitted it to a journal for peer review. You can share your AOM as much as you like, including via social media, on a scholarly collaboration network, your own personal website, or on a preprint server intended for non-commercial use (for example arXiv, bioRxiv, SocArXiv, etc.). Posting on a preprint server is not considered to be duplicate publication. If you do decide to post your AOM anywhere, we ask that, upon acceptance, you acknowledge that the article has been accepted for publication as follows:

“This article has been accepted for publication in IJSEE”

Accepted manuscript (AM):

If your article is accepted for publication it becomes the Accepted Manuscript. This version has been through the peer review process and been accepted by a journal editor. When you receive the acceptance email from the Editorial Office, keep a copy of your AM for any future posting. You can post your Accepted Manuscript (AM) at any point after acceptance (this includes posting to Facebook, Google groups, and LinkedIn, plus linking from Twitter). To encourage citation of your work, we recommend that you insert a link from your posted AM to the published article with the following text, including the DOR:

“This is an Accepted Manuscript of an article published in IJSEE [date of publication], [Article DOR].”

Version of Record (VOR):

This is the final, definitive, citable version of your paper, which has been copyedited, typeset, had metadata applied, and has been allocated a DOR (Digital Object Identifier). This is the published version. On publication you can link to the VOR using the DOR or you can post the article PDF on any non-commercial websites and repositories.

Connecting the different versions of your article:

By the time your article is published, you may have already shared your AOM and AM in various places. It is a good idea to link these to the VOR after publication, by adding some text such as:

“This is an [Accepted Manuscript / Author’s Original Manuscript] of an article published in IJSEE on [date of publication], available at [Article DOR].”

By using a link containing the DOR, article downloads, Altimetric data, and citations can all be tracked and collated. All this data can help you to assess the impact of your work.


Fees and Charges

Currently, IJSEE does not require any payment or charges in order to publish an accepted manuscript.
