Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript through the Manuscript Management System of The Open Access Journal of Science and Technology. Regardless of the source of the word-processing tool, only electronic PDF (.pdf) or Word (.doc, .docx, .rtf) files can be submitted through the Manuscript Management System. Only online submissions are accepted to facilitate rapid publication and minimize administrative costs. Submissions by anyone other than one of the authors will not be accepted. The submitting author takes responsibility for the paper during submission and peer review. If for some technical reason submission through the Manuscript Management System is not possible, the author can contact oajost@agialpress.com for support.


Peer Review

All manuscripts are subject to peer review by a number of the editorial board members and are expected to meet standards of academic excellence.


Units of Measurement

Units of measurement should be presented simply and concisely using System International (SI) units.


References

Authors are responsible for ensuring that the information in each reference is complete and accurate. All references must be numbered consecutively and citations of references in text should be identified using numbers in square brackets (e.g., “as discussed by Smith [9]”; “as discussed elsewhere [9,10]”). All references should be cited within the text; otherwise, these references will be automatically removed.

If the article is accepted, authors will be asked to provide the source files of the figures. Each figure should be supplied in a separate electronic file. All figures should be cited in the paper in a consecutive order. Figures should be supplied in either vector art formats (Illustrator, EPS, WMF, FreeHand, CorelDraw, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) or bitmap formats (Photoshop, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, etc.). Bitmap images should be of 300 dpi resolution at least unless the resolution is intentionally set to a lower level for scientific reasons. If a bitmap image has labels, the image and labels should be embedded in separate layers.
