Author Guidelines

Author Guidelines 

  1. Standard of Reporting

Authors should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior are unacceptable.

  1. Exclusivity of Work

Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others this should be appropriately cited or quoted. Plagiarism takes many forms, from ‘passing off’ another’s paper as the author’s own paper to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another’s paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable. In general, an author should not submit for consideration in another journal a previously published paper. We consider for publication from conference paper if it is only an extended version of conference paper with at least 30% of new material.

  1. Authorship of the Paper and Copyright

Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported work. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Whilst those who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate and inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication. No manuscript can be published unless accompanied by a signed publication agreement, which serves as a transfer of copyright from author to publisher. A copy of that agreement is required after the paper is accepted.

  1. Acknowledgement

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work. Information obtained privately, as in conversation, correspondence or discussion with third parties, must not be used or reported without explicit, written permission from the source. Information obtained in the course of confidential services, such as refereeing manuscripts or grant applications, must not be used without the explicit written permission of the author of the work involved in these services.

  1. Errors in Published Works

When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper. If the editor or the publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the obligation of the author to promptly retract or correct the paper or provide evidence to the editor of the correctness of the original paper.

  1. Disclaimer

  1. Disclosure of Funding Sources

Each author must individually declare all sources of funding received for the research submitted to the journal. This information includes the name of granting agencies, grant numbers, and a description of each funder’s role. If the funder has played no role in the research, this must be stated as well.

Authors are not required to provide the complete list of every single grant that supports them if the grant is not related to the research published.

Funding information is entered in the online submission system.

       8. Manuscript Preparation

Use the English language. Manuscript in MS Word is to be submitted online through www.bmeb-bi.org. Top, bottom, and right margins should be 2 cm. Left margins should be 3 cm. Use Times New Roman font throughout the manuscript and article tittle. Size and styles are shown below:

  1. The article title appears left justified at the top of the first page. The title font is 14 pt, Times New Roman, bold. The rules for capitalizing the title are the same as for heading: all words, proper should be capitalized. Do not begin titles with articles (e.g., a, an, the) or prepositions (e.g., on, by, etc.). Avoid the use of acronyms in the title, unless they are widely understood.
  2. Type each section heading on a separate line using the appropriate style from the style list. Sections should be numbered sequentially. Paragraphs that immediately follow a section heading are leading paragraphs and should not be indented, according to standard publishing style. The same goes for leading paragraphs of subsections and sub-subsections. In this MS Word template, use the Body Text style for leading paragraphs and the Body Text Indented style for all subsequent paragraphs.

1.1 Subsection Headings (Heading 2) > Subsection headings should be numbered 1.1, 1.2, etc.

1.1.1 Sub-section headings (Heading 3) > Sub-subsection headings should be numbered 1.1.1, 1.1.2, etc. Only the first word is capitalized.

3. Figures and Table

  • Figures > Figures are numbered in the order All figure parts must be labeled 1, 2 etc. A figure caption list should be provided after the references.
  • Tables > Tables are numbered in the order. They should appear in the document in numerical order.

4. Equations may appear in line with the text, if they are simple, short, and not of major importance; e.g., a = b/c. Important equations appear on their own line. Principal equations are numbered, with the equation number placed withinparentheses and right justified. Authors are strongly encouraged to use MS Word Equation Editor or MathType to create both in-text and display equations. Equations are considered to be part of a sentence and should be punctuated accordingly.

5. References

Every manuscript must include a list of references contain only the works cited. Each entry should contain all data necessary for unambiguous identification. With the author-date system, use the following format recommended by the APA Style:

  • Short quotations > If you are directly quoting from a work, you will need to include the author, year of publication, and the page number for the reference (preceded by "p."). Introduce the quotation with a signal phrase that includes the author's last name followed by the date of publication in parentheses. According to Jones (1998, p.199), "Students often had difficulty using APA style, especially when it was their first time".
  • Long quotations > Place direct quotations that are 40 words, or longer, in a free-standing block of typewritten lines, and omit quotation marks. Start the quotation on a new line, indented 1/2 inch from the left margin, i.e., in the same place you would begin a new paragraph. Type the entire quotation on the new margin, and indent the first line of any subsequent paragraph within the quotation 1/2 inch from the new margin. Maintain double-spacing throughout. The parenthetical citation should come after the closing punctuation mark.
  • Summary or paraphrase > If you are paraphrasing an idea from another work, you only have to make reference to the author and year of publication in your in-text reference, but APA guidelines encourage you to also provide the page number (although it is not required.)

The References section lists books, articles, and reports that are cited in the paper. Reference styles used Harvard-American Psycological Association (APA). We suggest author to used reference application (Mendeley, Refworks, Zotero, etc).
