Author Guidelines

IAIeST encourages the submission of original unpublished works, not under consideration by other journals. The acceptance of an article implies the exclusive license of copyright to the IAIeST. All submitted papers will undergo a Double-blind refereeing process. The editor does not accept responsibility for damage or loss of papers. The responsibility for any statement or opinion in the articles is purely of the authors and editorial board disclaims legal responsibility for any assertion, opinion or interpretation of the author.

Preparation of Manuscripts:
IAIeST publishes English-language articles. Manuscripts should be typed in a Word format, single spaced, in Times New Roman font, size 10, with Normal margins on all sides. The authors should format and submit the papers according to the following guidelines. In case of unconformity with the below instructions, the papers would not be taken into consideration:

(A) Title Page (First Page):
The title page should contain the following information:
(1) Title of the article.
(2) Complete name(s) of author(s), active e-mail(s) and institutional affiliation(s), respectively.
(3) Acknowledgement and/or any other special footnote should be given on this page.

(B) Abstract (200-300 Words + Keywords)

(C) Introduction

It may Contain Literature Review about Research Variables, Methodology, Results, etc. The authors should note that Tables and Figures should be embedded inside the manuscript and be numbered consecutively. The number and short descriptive title should appear above each table and figure.

(E) Discussion and Conclusion

(F) References
Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the authors. The authors should ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the references list (and vice versa). The authors should avoid citation in the abstract. Unpublished results and personal communications should not be in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. Citation of a reference as in press implies that the item has been accepted for publication. References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. In text, citations should include author(s) and year of publication:

(James & Beal, 2014); or James & Beal (2014).

Cite works with three or more authors, with the first author and “et al.” :

Beal et al. (2014); or (Beal et al., 2014).

More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters “a”, “b”, “c”, etc., placed after the year of publication:

Beal (2014a); Beal (2014b); Beal (2014c, d)
