Author Guidelines

Template Format - A (Click Here to Download Template Format - A )

    This template was created and saved as a Microsoft Word file. The template is used to format your paper and style the text. All margins, column widths, line spaces, and text fonts are prescribed; please do not alter them. You may note peculiarities. For example, the head margin in this template measures proportionately more than is customary. This measurement and others are deliberate, using specifications that anticipate your paper as one part of the entire proceedings, and not as an independent document. Please do not revise any of the current designations or format.

    The recommended sections in a paper submission are:

    • Abstract (150 ~200 words)
    • Introduction
    • Experimental Procedures(if it is STEM paper)
    • Measurements/Calculations(if it is STEM paper)
    • Data Analysis and Results (if it is STEM paper)
    • Any Relevant Subtitles
    • Discussion and Conclusion
    • Acknowledgements (Optional)
    • References

    AUTHOR GUIDELINES FOR KSEF JOURNAL

    ABSTRACT

    The abstract should appear at the top of the left-hand column of text, about 0.5 inch (12 mm) below the title area and no more than 3.125 inches (80 mm) in length. Leave a 0.5 inch (12 mm) space between the end of the abstract and the beginning of the main text. The abstract should contain about 100 to 150 words, and should be identical to the abstract text submitted electronically along with the paper cover sheet. All manuscripts must be in English, printed in black ink.

    Index Terms— One, two, three, four, five

    1. INTRODUCTION

    These guidelines include complete descriptions of the fonts, spacing, and related information for producing your proceedings manuscripts. Please follow them and if you have any questions, direct them to: info@jyme.org.

    2. FORMATTING YOUR PAPER

    All printed material, including text, illustrations, and charts, must be kept within a print area of 7 inches (178 mm) wide by 9 inches (229 mm) high. Do not write or print anything outside the print area. The top margin must be 1 inch (25 mm), except for the title page, and the left margin must be 0.75 inch (19 mm). All text must be in a two-column format. Columns are to be 3.39 inches (86 mm) wide, with a 0.24 inch (6 mm) space between them. Text must be fully justified.

    3. PAGE TITLE SECTION

    The paper title (on the first page) should begin 1.38 inches (35 mm) from the top edge of the page, centered, completely capitalized, and in Times 14-point, boldface type. The authors’ name(s) and affiliation(s) appear below the title in capital and lower case letters. Papers with multiple authors and affiliations may require two or more lines for this information.

    4. TYPE-STYLE AND FONTS

    To achieve the best rendering both in the proceedings and from the CD-ROM, we strongly encourage you to use Times-Roman font. In addition, this will give the proceedings a more uniform look. Use a font that is no smaller than nine point type throughout the paper, including figure captions.
    In nine point type font, capital letters are 2 mm high. If you use the smallest point size, there should be no more than 3.2 lines/cm (8 lines/inch) vertically. This is a minimum spacing; 2.75 lines/cm (7 lines/inch) will make the paper much more readable. Larger type sizes require correspondingly larger vertical spacing. Please do not double-space your paper. True-Type 1 fonts are preferred.
    The first paragraph in each section should not be indented, but all following paragraphs within the section should be indented as these paragraphs demonstrate.

    5. MAJOR HEADINGS

    Major headings, for example, “1. Introduction”, should appear in all capital letters, bold face if possible, centered in the column, with one blank line before, and one blank line after. Use a period (“.”) after the heading number, not a colon.

    5.1. Subheadings

    Subheadings should appear in lower case (initial word capitalized) in boldface. They should start at the left margin on a separate line.

    5.1.1. Sub-subheadings
    Sub-subheadings, as in this paragraph, are discouraged. However, if you must use them, they should appear in lower case (initial word capitalized) and start at the left margin on a separate line, with paragraph text beginning on the following line. They should be in italics.

    6. PRINTING YOUR PAPER

    Print your properly formatted text on high-quality, 8.5 x 11-inch white printer paper. A4 paper is also acceptable, but please leave the extra 0.5 inch (12 mm) empty at the BOTTOM of the page and follow the top and left margins as specified. If the last page of your paper is only partially filled, arrange the columns so that they are evenly balanced if possible, rather than having one long column.

    7. PAGE NUMBERING

    Please do not paginate your paper. Page numbers, session numbers, and conference identification will be inserted when the paper is included in the proceedings.

    8. ILLUSTRATIONS, GRAPHS, AND PHOTOGRAPHS

    Illustrations must appear within the designated margins. They may span the two columns. If possible, position illustrations at the top of columns, rather than in the middle or at the bottom. Caption and number every illustration. All halftone illustrations must be clear black and white prints. If you use color, make sure that the color figures are clear when printed on a black-only printer.

    9. FOOTNOTES

    Use footnotes sparingly (or not at all!) and place them at the bottom of the column on the page on which they are referenced. Use Times 9-point type, single-spaced. To help your readers, avoid using footnotes altogether and include necessary peripheral observations in the text (within parentheses, if you prefer, as in this sentence).

    10. COPYRIGHT FORMS

    You must include your fully completed, signed KSEF copyright release form when you submit your paper. We must have this form before your paper can be published in the proceedings. The copyright form is available as a Word file, a PDF file, and an HTML file. You can also use the form sent with your author kit.

    11. REFERENCES

    List and number all bibliographical references at the end of the paper. The references can be numbered in alphabetic order or in order of appearance in the document. When referring to them in the text, type the corresponding reference number in square brackets as shown at the end of this sentence [1].
