Guide for Authors


Journal of Advances in Industrial Engineering (AIE) publishes papers on the different aspects of … AIE has no charges either for the article processing or the article submission. Consider that the articles should neither have been previously published nor been sent to other journals simultaneously, before the final decision from AIE

The following describes the manuscript submission process and requirements, Title page and manuscript criteria accepted style to AIE and other necessary information for authors. For additional information, do not hesitate to contact the editorial office of AIE

Before submission

Publication ethics

Before manuscript submission, please check our publication ethics here.


Upon acceptance of an article, authors will be asked to complete the "Journal Publishing Agreement" and send it to. AIE For more details, please download the

Review process

The objective of AIE is to provide a constructive feedback on submitted papers and publish high-quality papers within a very short period of time. You may be requested by the Editor to submit a revision. Please submit the revised version of the manuscript at your earliest convenience to help us make the review process as short as possible.

In terms of review, the policy of AIE is to review all submitted articles in a double-blind method. It means neither authors nor reviewers know each other’s identities so that each manuscript would be reviewed fairly and independently.


Authors are invited to suggest the names of five persons who are qualified to serve as reviewers. Please provide complete contact information, including an institutional e-mail address for each of the suggested reviewers.

Please note, Suggested reviewers should have a great understanding and knowledge of the research area. Consider not suggesting collaborators, colleagues, and researchers at your institution, former advisors or advisees. It must be noticed that the final decision on the reviewers would be Editor's choice, but your help is appreciated and could speed up the choice of appropriate reviewers.


The journal language is English. British or American English spelling and terminology may be used (but not a mixture of these). We appreciate any efforts that ensure the language before submission. This will greatly improve the legibility of your paper if English is not your first language.


Proofs will be sent to the corresponding author by e-mail. Your response, with or without corrections, should be sent within 72 hours.

Types of paper

Here is a list contains types of paper that would be published in AIE:

  • Research Papers: Research papers should be a comprehensive study reporting original new research data.
  • Short Communications: Shorter contributions dealing with hot topics, new ideas, controversial opinions, and negative results.
  • Review Papers: A review article should demonstrate insights of the topic and include a background, current state-of-the-art, challenges, and future trends of the topic. Besides, the author(s) should have a great knowledge and experience in the topic.
  • Letter to Editor: Letter to Editor comments on works already published in this journal.

Manuscript submission

Submission process

Manuscripts should be submitted through the journal website. For manuscript submission, at least the corresponding author needs to register on the website. Please note that the corresponding author should be a faculty member.

For registration on the website, the author needs to fill in a registration form. After that, an email would be sent to authors containing password and other account information. After that, by clicking "author" from the menu bar, the author can start the manuscript submission process.

Submission requirements

Please ensure that the following items are present:

Title page

Title page, sent by the authors, includes the article title, the name of the author(s), affiliation(s), an abstract and keywords.


The title of the paper should be written centered at the top of the page using Times New Roman bold of 18 point font and should not exceed 100 characters (excluding spaces).


The name of the author(s) should be written under the title using Times New Roman bold of 12 point font in first name-last name order. An example of this would be:

 Tavakoli Moghadam , Reza (not Tavakoli Moghadam, R.)

Note that the name of the corresponding author should be indicated by an asterisk (*).


The affiliation of the author(s) should be written under the name of the author(s) using Times New Roman italic of 12 point font. An example of this would be:

School of Industrial Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran

Also, institutional e-mail and phone number of the corresponding author should be written in the footnote of the title page.


Please provide a short abstract of 150 to 250 words. The abstract is often presented separately; so it should not contain any undefined abbreviations or references. It should represent the purpose and novelty of the research, the main findings, and the results.


Please provide 5 to 7 keywords in British or American English spelling. To allow independent retrieval through the internet, please include appropriate keywords (avoid general and plural terms and multiple concepts) in alphabetical order, separated by commas.

Manuscript main file structure

The manuscript, including the abstract, keywords, the main body of the article, all the figures and tables, conclusion, acknowledgment, nomenclature, appendices, and references, should be typed in one columns page with single line space in international A4 paper size. The right, left, up and down margins should be 2.5 cm (1 inch). The article should be written in Times New Roman of 12-point in MS Word. Typical papers should not exceed 7500 words or 12 - 22  journal pages.


Authors are encouraged to use appropriate headings and subheadings in the main body of the manuscript. Headings must be numbered. Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text'. Use the following guideline for headings:

  • First level: Times New Roman bold of 14-point font (1. Heading)
  • Second level: Times New Roman bold of 12-point font (1.1. Heading)
  • Third level: Times New Roman 12 point font (1.1.1. Heading)

Recommended section titles for the first level of headings would be Introduction, Experiments and/or Theory, Results and discussion, conclusion.


All figures should be in high quality and numbered consecutively (1, 2, etc.). Multipart figures should be labeled with lowercase letters (a, b, c, etc.). Please insert keys and scale bars directly in the figures. The resolution of the figures must at least be 300 dpi. Figures that are prepared by excel should be sent along with their source of data. Each figure should stand alone.

Refer to a figure in the text as 'Fig.' and note that it is placed next to the relevant text in the manuscript. Please provide a Caption for each figure using Times New Roman of 10 point font.


Tables should be numbered consecutively (1, 2, etc.). In tables, footnotes are preferable to the use of a long explanatory material in either the heading or body of the table. Such explanatory footnotes should be placed immediately below the table.

Refer to a table in the text as 'Table' and note that it is placed next to the relevant text in the manuscript. Please provide a caption for each table using Times New Roman of 9-11-point font.


Equations should be numbered consecutively (1, 2, etc.). Please submit math equations as editable text and not as images.

Refer to an equation in the text as 'Eq.' and note that it is placed next to the relevant text in the manuscript.


As a journal for a general chemical engineering audience, JIENG uses SI units for unambiguous and widely-accessible writing. Authors may include alternate measurements along with SI units, e.g. "0.15 g/g (15 mass %)."


Symbols are defined in the nomenclature, in the order symbol – definition (unit), alphabetically. Dimensionless symbols do not require a unit. Definitions are in lowercase text, except for proper names. An example would be:




pressure (pa)


Reynolds number

Greek letter symbols must be listed immediately after the list of Roman symbols in a separate subsection entitled “Greek Letters” in alphabetic order.


Will be announced later…..


Appendices must be placed after the list of references. If there is more than one appendix, label them with uppercase as A, B, etc. all the equations, figures, and table should be numbered separately as Eq. A.1, Fig. A.1, Table A.1, etc.
