Main document (without author details): The main body of the paper (including the references, figures, tables, and any acknowledgments) should not include any identifying information, such as the author's names or affiliations.

 

Types of Paper
Regular Research Article: This should describe new and/or carefully investigated findings, and research methods should be given in sufficient detail for others to verify the work. Articles should be 5,000 - 10,000 words long to describe and interpret the work clearly. All regular research articles are peer-reviewed by a minimum of 3 referees.
Short Communication Article: This short communication is suitable for reporting the results of small investigations or giving details of new models, innovative methods, or techniques. The style of the main sections doesn’t need to conform to that of full-length papers. Short communications should be usually 3,000~5,000 words long.
