Guide for Authors

Authors are encouraged to submit their original manuscripts online via the website:

http://jhmtr.journals.semnan.ac.ir/

All papers are subject to a peer-reviewing procedure. The manuscript should be written in good English. It should have been carefully checked for clarity, conciseness, the correctness of grammar, and typographical errors.

While preparing manuscripts, authors are kindly requested to follow the guidelines, described below:

  • All papers should be submitted in Microsoft Word file (.doc or .docx).
  • The file should include text (preferably in 12 points, ''Times New Roman'' font) and all figures (figures should be at the end of the text).
  • The manuscript pages should be prepared with double-line spacing, one column, and a margin of at least 4 cm on one side.
  • All papers should be composed of Title, Author Name, Affiliation, Corresponding author email, Abstract, Keywords, Body, and References.
  • It is recommended that the title of the paper does not contain abbreviations or formulae and should not be longer than three lines.
  • The use of abbreviations should be avoided in the abstract, if possible and all abbreviations must be explained when used in the text for the first.
  • References should be numbered in the order they are mentioned in the text.

Paper Template:

The publication of any manuscript in the JHMTR requires strict conformance to the paper template. Nevertheless, the initial submission of the manuscript for the first round of the reviewing process needs not to be compliant with the template. Upon acceptance of the paper, the authors should submit the final paper which is compliant with the journal template. The template can be found in the JHMTR Template file.

JHMTR is a 100% free of charge journal for both authors and readers and all accepted papers are published in the journal without any publication fee.
