Author Guidelines

Preface

The Journal of Advances in Vehicle Engineering (JADVE) is a leading journal covering a broad spectrum of vehicle engineering topics. It spearheads the most recent developments and findings in the relevant fields of its interest scopes. The internationally selected editorial board of the journal welcomes the Original contributions from the researchers to be fully considered for publication after a rigorous peer-review process by at least two eligible referees. All submitted manuscripts neither the entire nor any part of their content should have been published prior to submission or being considered for publication elsewhere. All authors should read and approve the manuscript and take responsibility for its contents and abide by the statement of ethical standards for original works. The corresponding author must provide a signed statement to this effect as well as a cover letter that the paper meets all the ethical criteria for an original work and that the paper has been solely submitted to the JADVE journal. The submitted manuscripts are asked strongly to adhere by the Guide for Authors file appended below. The papers provided with a different style would be returned to the authors with no further consideration for being published.

Manuscript Outline

The papers must be submitted to the Journal of Advances in Vehicle Engineering electronically at:http://www.jadve.com/users/login

Manuscripts must be submitted only in American English with a proficient level of grammar, wording and proper terminology. Poorly written manuscripts should be polished by a native speaker to ensure that the language of the work meets the criteria of standard publication providing the sense of continuity for the readers.

Manuscript Preparation

Manuscripts should completely adhere by the JADVE template. Click to download the template. All manuscript must use SI (metric) units throughout the text, figures, or tables. Manuscripts should be organized in the following order: title, name(s) of author(s) and his/her (their) complete affiliation(s) including zip code(s), Abstract (not exceeding 200 words), Introduction, Main body of paper, Acknowledgements (if any) and References.

Abbreviations

Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter.

Equations

If you are using Word, use either the Microsoft Equation Editor or the MathType add-on (http://www.mathtype.com) for equations in your paper (Insert | Object | Create New | Microsoft Equation or MathType Equation). All mathematical equations should be clearly typed using softwares such as Math Type or any standards mathematical equation typing software. Superscripts and subscripts should be typed clearly above or below the base line. Equation numbers should be given in Arabic numerals enclosed in parentheses on the right-hand margin. They should be cited in the text as, for example, Eq. (1), or Eqs. (1)-(3).

Tables

Tables should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. Do not add a border around the outside of tables. All tables should be referred to in the text.

Figures

Format and save your graphic images using a suitable graphics processing program that will allow you to create the images as PostScript (PS), Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), or Tagged Image File Format (TIFF), sizes them, and adjusts the resolution settings. If you created your source files in one of the following you will be able to submit the graphics without converting to a PS, EPS, or TIFF file: Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel, or Portable Document Format (PDF). All the illustrations should be of high quality and resolution to provide complete readibility and clariy at the reduced size state for the publication stage. The captions of all figures should be referred to in the text as, e.g., Fig. 1, or Figs. 1-3.

References

Number citations consecutively in square brackets [1]. The sentence punctuation follows the brackets [2]. Multiple references [2], [3] are each numbered with separate brackets [1]–[3]. When citing a section in a book, please give the relevant page numbers [2]. In sentences, refer simply to the reference number, as in [3]. Do not use “Ref. [3]” or “reference [3]” except at the beginning of a sentence: “Reference [3] shows ... .” Please do not use automatic endnotes in Word, rather, type the reference list at the end of the paper using the “References” style. Please note that the references at the end of this document are in the preferred referencing style. Give all authors’ names; do not use “et al.” unless there are six authors or more. All references should be listed at the end of the manuscripts, arranged in order. The exemplary form of listed references is as follows:

[2] White F M. Viscous Fluid Flow, McGraw-Hill, New York, USA, (1974).
[3] Graupe D. Principles of artificial neural networks. p. 303. In: Circuits and systems. 2nd ed. USA: World Scientific; 2007. Advanced Series.
[4] Chandel R S, Bala S R. Effect of welding parameters and groove angle on the soundness of rootbeads deposited by the SAW process, Proc. of Trends in Welding Research, Gatlinburg, Tennessee, USA. (1986) 479-385.
[5] Vantsevich V V, Gray JP. 2009. Fuel economy and mobility of multi-wheel drive vehicles: modeling and optimization technology. In: Proceedings of the 2009 Ground Vehicle Systems Engineering and Technology, p. 1–8.

References, including those pending publications in well-known journals or pertaining to private communications, not readily available to referees and readers will not be acceptable if the understanding of any part of the submitted paper is dependent upon them. 

Revised Manuscript

Manuscripts reviewed that require revision should be revised provided with a response to the reviewer's comment inserted at the end of manuscript file submitted at JADVE Manuscript Submission System in no more than two months. Otherwise, the manuscript will be considered as a new manuscript when and if it is resubmitted.

Proofs and Reprints

Galley proofs will be provided as a pdf file to the author. The author should return the corrected galley proofs within a week. Attention of the authors is directed to the instructions which accompany the proof, especially the requirement that all corrections, revisions, and additions be entered on the proofs and not on the manuscripts. Proofs should be carefully checked and returned to the JADVE editorial office by e-mail if the changes are minimal. If the changes are extensive, proofs should be returned with attachment. Substantial changes in an article at this stage may be made at the author’s expense. The reprint request form must be returned with the proof. Neither the editor nor the JADVE office keeps any supply of reprints.
