International Journal of Emerging Multidisciplinaries: Mathematics
Manuscript should be submitted by a single complete file that includes all figures and tables in a PDF format. Please use the IJEMD LaTex macro package to prepare your manuscript unsing Latex. The submission should include the original source (including all style files and figures) and a PDF version of the compiled output. Microsoft Word users can download and install IJEMD_MWtemplate to help speed the task of formatting their manuscripts and then convert the Microsoft Word file into PDF format (Please note that this template were designed for Word 2010 for Windows).
Your manuscript text file should begin with a title page that includes author affiliations and contact information, as well as an asterisk indicating the corresponding author. We recommend that each part begin with a related written introduction that explains the work’s context. It’s fine if there’s some overlap with the Abstract. Please do not include any references in the abstract and make sure it serves as both a general introduction to the subject and a quick, non-technical review of the important findings and their consequences.
There are no special requirements for the major body of the text. Everything’s up to you to organize it in the method that works best for your research. In many circumstances, though, the following structure will suffice:
- Results and Discussion (without subheadings)
- References (limited to 60 references, though not strictly enforced)
- Acknowledgements (optional)
- Author contributions (names must be given as initials)
- Additional Information (including a Competing Interests Statement)
- Figure legends (these are limited to 250 words per figure)
- Tables (maximum size of one page)
Your Methods section should be no longer than 1,500 words. Make sure it contains enough experimental and characterization data so that others can duplicate your findings. You ought to:
- Include standard methods and experimental techniques in your description.
- Only identify commercial reagents or instrumentation vendors if the source is important to the experiment’s success.
- Identify sources for any kits you use in your procedures.
- Include any experimental protocols that describe the synthesis of new compounds.
- Use the systematic name of any new compound and put its bold Arabic numeral in the heading for the experimental protocol, indicating it thereafter by its assigned, bold numeral.
- Describe the experimental protocol in detail, referring to amounts of reagents in parentheses, when possible (eg , ).
- Use standard abbreviations for reagents and solvents.
- Clearly identify safety hazards posed by reagents or protocols.
- Report isolated mass and percent yields at the end of each protocol.
Your references are not copied and pasted. As a result, it’s critical that you format them appropriately, as they’ll be electronically linked to external databases whenever possible. The standard referencing style is used at IJEMD. As a result, double-check your references while formatting them:
- Run sequentially (and are always numerical).
- Sit within square brackets.
- Only have one publication linked to each number.
- Only include papers or datasets that have been published or accepted by a named publication, recognized preprint server or data repository (if you include any preprints of accepted papers in your reference list, make sure you submit them with the manuscript).
- Include published conference abstracts and numbered patents, if you wish.
- Don’t include grant details and acknowledgements.
- Include all authors unless there are six or more, in which case only the first author should be given, followed by ‘et al.’.
- List authors by last name first, followed by a comma and initials (followed by full stops) of given names.
- Use Roman text for Article and dataset titles, with only the first word of the title having an initial capital and written exactly as it appears in the work cited, ending with a full stop.
- Use italics for book titles, giving all words in the title an initial capital.
- Use italics for journal and data repository names, abbreviating them according to common usage (with full stops).
- Use bold for volume numbers and the subsequent comma.
- Give the full page range (or article number), where appropriate.
