2 General Instructions

2.1 Synopsis

The manuscript should have a self-contained and citation-free synopsis within 500 words. The synopsis should be in the paragraphs with running sentences. Do not use any subheading or point list within the synopsis.

2.2 Manuscript structure

All manuscripts must contain clearly defined chapters and numbered sections within the chapters along with other essential elements of the Book. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (Introductory summary of the chapter may not be included in section numbering). Use this numbering for internal cross-referencing also, do not just refer to 'the text'. Any subsection may be given a brief heading, each heading should appear on its own separate line. We suggest using Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3… style tag of Microsoft word for proper continuous numbering. Each section of the manuscript should be written with the continuous flow of the content; do not use point list, always use continuous sentences.

2.3 Conclusion/summary

Each chapter should contain the main conclusions at the end by highlighting its importance and relevance. The conclusion should be written in a continuous manner with running sentences which normally includes the main outcome of the chapter, its application, limitation, and recommendation. Do not use any subheading or point list within the conclusion.

2.4 Figures and Tables

Authors are supposed to include all figures and tables at appropriate place in the manuscript. Figures and tables should not be submitted in separate files; however, author may be asked to provide separate files of the figure. Figures should be supplied in bitmap formats (Photoshop, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, etc.) 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. Table should be prepared using table tool within the Microsoft word and must have a descriptive title and if numerical measurements are given, the units should be included in the column heading.

Figures and Tables should be numbered properly with a descriptive title. Each Figure/Table must be explained within the text by referring to corresponding figure/table number. Any unexplained or unnumbered Figure/Table will be dropped from the publication.

3 References

Author(s) are responsible for ensuring that the information in each reference is complete and accurate. Do not use grey literature (unauthentic website, news portal, Wikipedia etc) as a reference, only scholarly literature (Journal, online books, proceedings, patents) are acceptable references. All references must be numbered consecutively and citations of references in the text should be identified using numbers in square brackets (e.g., “as explained by AIJR [1]”; “as discussed in many reports [2]-[6]”). All references should be cited within the text; otherwise, these references will be automatically removed. All cited references should be listed after acknowledgment section in the following style-

[1] W. S. Author, “Title of paper ” Name of Journal in italic, vol. x, no. x, pp. xx-xx, year. doi or URL (link)

[2] Author 1 et al. “Title of the article” Title of the book/proceedings Publisher, pp xx-xx, year. doi or link

3.1 Main features of citation style are given as-

  • The author name format is, "first name (Initial), middle name (Initial) and last name". This differs from other styles where author's last name is first.
  • The title of an article (or chapter, conference paper, patent, etc.) is in quotation marks.
  • The title of the book or journal is in italics.
  • Online link of the original paper. If any reference is not available online, it should be modified with available online reference.

If you are using any reference manager (e.g. Mendeley, Endnote etc), you may select standard style IEEE with URL.
