We encourage our authors to submit their manuscript for speedy publication as e-mail attachment, followed by two hard copies and a CD. The text should be formatted in Word or PageMaker. Regular papers submitted to OJCST must report original research and will be subjected to review by experts/referees of the relevant field.

The Journal also publishes book reviews, news and details of new products.

Oriental Journal of Computer Science and Technology considers all manuscripts on the strict condition that they have been submitted only to Oriental Journal of Computer Science and Technology, that they have not been published already, and that they are not under consideration for publication or in press elsewhere.

Manuscripts submitted for publication should meet the following criteria: validity of data, clarity, conciseness, reproducibility of results, and compliance with typescript requirements. In discussing the results, it is mandatory to set forth a sound conclusion on the novelty of the materials submitted for publication

General

The following should be used as a guide in preparing papers for publication.

Manuscripts for Research articles submitted to Oriental Journal of Computer Science and Technology should be divided into the following sections:

title page, abstract with keywords, introduction, material and methods, results, discussion, conclusions, acknowledgements, references, tables, and legends to figures.

Authorship

Submission of an article to the OJCST will be taken to imply that all authors have seen and approved the final version of the manuscript and that the contributions of all people involved in the research have been properly acknowledged. The covering letter should clearly identify who will deal with correspondence concerning the article.

Manuscript Text

Short title (running head) of not more than 45 characters. The title page should include the author’s name(s), affiliations and the address to which all correspondence should be made.

Telephone and fax numbers should also be supplied, along with e-mail address if available. Present addresses of authors should appear as a footnote.

Title page

Short title (running head) of not more than 45 characters. The title page should include the author’s name(s), affiliations and the address to which all correspondence should be made.

Telephone and fax numbers should also be supplied, along with e-mail address if available. Present addresses of authors should appear as a footnote.

Abstract

Abstract should be brief not exceeding 200 words.

The purposes of an abstract are:

  1. to give a clear indication of the objective, scope, and results of the paper so that readers may determine whether the full text will be of particular interest to them;
  2. to provide key words and phrases for indexing, abstracting, and retrieval purposes.

Keywords

Each paper should have three to six keywords indicating the contents of manuscripts.

Title

Title should be short and informative. A running title is also necessary.

Introduction

The introductory section should contain a brief review of the problem with which the study deals, validate the approach taken, and clearly formulate the goals.

Materials and Methods

This section comprises full description of the object of the study (including Latin names), the conditions of growth of microorganisms and higher plants, and consecutive steps of the experiment. The original names of instruments and reagents should be specified, and the manufacturer’s name (company, country) should be given in parentheses. Please indicate the source from which the particular strain has been obtained.

Results and Discussion

This section should provide a concise description of experimental data obtained, illustrated by tables and figures (which should not duplicate each other). Rather than mechanically repeating the data of tables and graphs, the text should seek to reveal the principles detected. It is recommended to use past indefinite verb tense in describing the results. Discussion should not reiterate the results. This section should be completed with a major conclusion that answers the question specified in the introductory part of the article.

The appropriate place for each table or figure should be indicated in a square box in the left margin. Each table (no less than three columns) should be submitted on a separate sheet and have a number and a title. Two copies of each figure should be submitted. Figure captions should be submitted on a separate page. The figures should contain minimum inscriptions. Photographs should be presented in three copies, two of which should be free of inscriptions.

Tables

Tables should be typed as text, using either ‘tabs’ or a table editor for layout. Do not use graphics software to create tables.

Figures and Graphs

Please keep illustrations as separate files.

Acceptable formats: TIFF, JPEG, PDF, WMF, GIF, EPS (resolution independent files)
