Instructions to authors regarding formatting the article

INTEGRATED PUBLISHING ASSOCIATION JOURNALS

Instructions to prepare article matching our guidelines

According to our journal editorial policy authors should submit their article again to the concerned mail id mentioned in acceptance mail for initiating the publishing process, we do not process articles that are not submitted to this id. We are thriving hard to publish the articles as quickly as possible but because of some issue like non-confirmity of article author guidelines, non submission of article to proper mail id etc makes the process tedious and we are unable to support quicker processing, hence we are soliciting authors kind co-operation in this regard. Authors are informed to read the author guidelines clearly, download few articles from the concerned journal and check how the article is formatted and then proceed in submitting the article.

To complete the process of publishing the selected articles we request you to follow and complete the following

1) Please find attached template of our journals and download respective template of the journal in which your article is accepted for publication, the template is a representative file which will guide you in preparing the article for final submission

2) Please send some time in reading the instructions clearly and  fit your article in this template exactly following the author guidelines without any deviation.

Please note the following while doing the same

a) Focus on the alignment, font size, font type used in this template and fix exactly, also give figure names as Figure 1 and not as fig, give name to all tables in order like Table 1, Table 2 etc.
b) We face problems with some of the images pasted which is not coming properly in pdf, so focus on the way the images were pasted, do not paste any image inside a text box, the figure name should not be given in the image itself, it should be given below image as text.
c) Do not give page numbers, do not edit, headers of footers, just save this template and fix your content in this properly.
d) Many authors are not focusing on our author guidelines for references, please follow the reference method exactly as per our author guidelines, if you are unable to check please download some of the articles published and repeat the same in your article.
e) Article citation should be given as (author name, year) ex. ( Brussels, 2003) or ( Brussels and Campbridge, 2010), ( Brussels et al, 2010) and not as [12] or [1-3] in the article, please cite all the references in the article clearly and carefully. The quality of a research article directly depends on the citation and references incorporated in the article.
f) All tables should be given with 12 font size and the tables should not exceed 5-6 columns, if the table is too long split it into smaller tables, all tables should in portrait format only and not in landscape form. Do not draw the table using draw elements just use Insert table option of MS Word for tables.
g) Do not use section break, page break or any other break anywhere in the article which will be a hindrance while we are editing.
h) Do not use a table with more than 5-6 columns, if its there kindly reduce it to two or three smaller tables and provide them in necessary position.
