After receiving submitted articles, the system will send the article ID and password to the corresponding author for tracking the status of the article. The authors are required carefully to apply all the requirements.
GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT FORMAT
General: The detailed formatting instructions should be applied by the author(s).
Language: IJAESA accepts only English manuscripts (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of these).

Section heading: Section headings should be used. The main text of an article may consist of the following headings: Introduction, Description of the Research, Methodology, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgement and References.
PEER REVIEW PROCESS
Authors have historically complained of the time it takes to get a paper published. IJAESA tries hard to process papers as thoroughly, fairly and rapidly as possible. As a result, peer reviewers are asked to submit their comments within 10 business days. All the submitted articles after passing the preliminary check by the editors will go for the peer-review process. Those articles positively recommended by at least two expert reviewers will be finally accepted for publication in IJAESA or after applying the required modifications.
The following order should be strictly followed while submitting the article:
Title of the article, authors' names, authors' designation, authors' department name, authors' institution/ university name, author's email address, an abstract of about 150-250 words to conveying the content of the article, keywords (4-6 words), main content text with all tables and figures aligned in their location (do not send tables and figures separately unless requested), list of symbols and abbreviations, acknowledgement, references (follow standard format).
The main heading or Title: 16 points and Bold
The subtitles: 12 points and Bold
The content of the article: 10 points
The other titles: Do not capitalize the titles unnecessarily unless required. (E.g. ABSTRACT and other headings should be capitalized.)
We recommend the use of our template to prepare the manuscript.
In-text citations consist of the surname(s) of the author(s) and the year of publication.
- If there is no author, use the title (or a short form of the title, if it is lengthy) and the year. Titles that are italicized in the reference list are italicized in the text; titles that are not italicized in the reference list appear in quotation marks.
- If there is no date, use “n.d.” (without quotation marks) instead.
Order the citations of two or more works by different authors within the same parentheses alphabetically in the same order in which they appear in the reference list (including citations that would otherwise shorten to et al.). Separate the citations with semicolons.
Several studies (Miller, 1999; Shafranske & Mahoney, 1998)
Arrange two or more works by the same authors (in the same order) by year of publication. Place in-press citations last. Give the authors' surnames once; for each subsequent work, give only the date.
Past research (Gogel, 1990, 2006, in press)
Identify works by the same author (or by the same two or more authors in the same order) with the same publication date by the suffixes a, b, c, and so forth, after the year; repeat the year. The suffixes are assigned in the reference list, where these kinds of references are ordered alphabetically by title (of the article, chapter, or complete work).
Several studies (Derryberry & Reed, 2005a, 2005b, in press-a; Rothbart, 2003a, 2003b)
You may separate a major citation from other citations within parentheses by inserting a phrase such as see also, before the first of the remaining citations, which should be in alphabetical order.
(Minor, 2001; see also Adams, 1999; Storandt, 2007)
Ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list.
Single author: the author’s name (without initials) and the year of publication;
Two authors: Both authors name and also the year of publication of the article.
Three or more than three authors: First author’s name followed by “et al.”. Example: Baskaran, 1998: Crish Rabia and John Pedikri, 2008: Podilinski et al., 2004. Citing web reference can be like the journal article reference.
