Instructions for Authors

  • Types of Papers

The Journal publishes Regular Papers (Research Articles), Rapid Communications (Letters) and Review Papers.

  • Regular Papers (Research Articles): the manuscript being submitted must consist of original research performed by the authors, and the research must include new information that is of significance. In this kind of paper, everything should be presented under five subtitles (5 sections), including ABSTRACT, INTRODUCTION, EXPERIMENTAL or MODEL DESCRIPTION, RESULTS AND DISCUSSION, and CONCLUSION. Of course, authors may create any required headings under the mentioned subtitles. There is no page limit for Regular Papers.  
  • Rapid Communications; these papers communicate brief data reports from original research. In this case, editors should be convinced that the paper is attractive to many researchers, and the presented work is time-sensitive and should be published as soon as possible. The content of Rapid Communication should not exceed three pages in journal format without any section or subtitle.
  • Review Papers: an important, recent physical phenomenon or discovery should be reviewed in this kind of paper. A review paper should present and discuss the results of at least 50 published papers. Authors can determine subtitles and sections, and they have no page limit.  
  • Manuscript Submission and Publication Ethics

By submitting the manuscript, all authors imply that the work described has not been published before and is not under consideration for publication anywhere else. Furthermore, the paper has been approved by all co-authors, if any, and by the responsible authorities (tacitly or explicitly) at the institute where the work has been carried out.

By submitting the manuscript, all authors imply that all parts of the manuscript present the results of their own research, and there is not any undeclared conflict of interest, including competing financial interests or personal relationships that could have appeared to influence the work reported in this paper.

JTAP will not be held legally responsible should there be any compensation claims.

  • Republishing

Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers.

Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.

Preparation of the manuscript

Respected authors are recommended to prepare their papers in accordance with JTAP rules. 

  • Title Page

The title page is the first page of the paper, and only the following points should be presented on this page; 

  • Title of the paper, which should be concise and informative.
  • Authors’ complete first name and family name without any abbreviation.
  • The affiliation(s) of the author(s) should include institution (department), city, and country, without any street name or postcode.      
  • The e-mail address of the corresponding author. JTAP prefers academic emails. A presentation of both email addresses is required if the corresponding author wishes to communicate with a non-academic email.   
  • The 16-digit ORCID of the author(s). ORCID of the corresponding author is required.
  • Abstract (150 to 250 words, without undefined abbreviations or unspecified references).
  • Keywords (4 to 6 keywords that can be used for indexing).

And nothing more.

  • Text

The manuscript should be prepared in 1 column, 1.5 line space, and justified text under the mandatory subtitles (Introduction, Experimental setup or Model description, Results and discussion, Conclusion), without any figure or table. The size of the pages should be A4 with portrait orientation, numbered consecutively using Arabic numbers.

  • References

Reference citations in the text should be identified by numbers in square brackets (Vancouver Style). Only published peer reviewed documents i. e. papers (journal paper or conference proceedings), and books can be introduced in the references list. Internet pages, including Wikipedia, can not be used in the reference. Please prepare references similar to;

  • Tables

Tables (with caption) should be presented on the new page after References. They must be numbered consecutively in the text using Arabic numerals.

Please don’t indicate anything by color in the tables.

  • Figures

Figures (with caption) should be presented on the new page after Tables. They must be numbered consecutively in the text using Arabic numerals.

If you include figures already published elsewhere, you must obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format.

You may choose one the figures of the paper (which fluently introduces the work done) as the graphical abstract.  

  • Vector graphics (plots)

Accepted formats for Vector graphs are EPS (preferably), TIFF, PNG, and JPEG, but MS Office files are acceptable. The accepted resolution for Vector graphs is a minimum of 1200 dpi. All lines should be at least 0.1 mm (0.3 pt) wide. Vector graphics containing fonts must have the fonts embedded in the files. Texts inside the photo should not be shaded and should be clearly readable.

  • Halftone (photos)

Halftones should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. Any magnification in the photographs should be indicated using scale bars. The color of the lines related to each data should be chosen to distinguish them from other data. If there is any font in halftone, it must be embedded in the photo and clearly readable.
