IRASE offers a comprehensive range of articles on
all aspects of engineering and applied sciences. It provides an international
and interdisciplinary platform for the exchange of ideas between engineers,
researchers and scholars within the academy and industry. It covers a wide
range of application areas including architecture, building services and
energetics, civil engineering, electrical engineering and mechatronics,
environmental engineering, mechanical engineering, material sciences, applied
informatics and management sciences. The aim of the Journal is to provide a
location for reporting original research results having international focus
with multidisciplinary content. The published papers will provide solely new
basic information for designers, scholars and developers working in the
mentioned fields. The papers will reflect the broad categories of interest
in: optimisation, simulation, modelling, control techniques, monitoring, and
development of new analysis methods, equipment and system conceptions.
MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Articles should be 5000-6000 words long, although
articles longer than 6000 words will be accepted on an occasional basis and
should not exceed 20 standard pages including abstracts, illustrations,
tables and references.
This section exists for the expression of opinions,
and allows authors to submit material which might not be appropriate for
full-length articles but which contains ideas worthy of publication.
Commentaries should be 2000-3000 words and should not exceed 10 standard
This item should be 1000-1500 words.
This item should be 1000-1500 words.
Contributions submitted for publication should be
prepared in good quality written English.
Articles should be divided into clearly defined and
numbered sections. Each subsection is given a brief heading. Each heading
should appear on its own separate line.
A concise and factual abstract is required. The
abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal
results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from
the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, references
and non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided.
State the objectives of the work and provide an
adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of
Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be
reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference:
only relevant modifications should be described.
Results should be clear and concise.
This should explore the significance of the results
of the work, not repeat them. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of
The main conclusions of the study may be presented
separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone.
Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of
5 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts. Be
sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the
field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.
Define abbreviations that are not standard in this
field in a footnote to be placed on the first page of the article. Such
abbreviations that are unavoidable in the abstract must be defined at their
first mention there, as well as in the footnote. Ensure consistency of
abbreviations throughout the article.
Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at
the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include
them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here
those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing
language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.).
Footnotes should be used sparingly. Number them
consecutively throughout the article, using superscript Arabic numbers. Many
wordprocessors build footnotes into the text, and this feature may be used.
Should this not be the case, indicate the position of footnotes in the text
and present the footnotes themselves separately at the end of the article. Do
not include footnotes in the Reference list.
Number tables consecutively in accordance with their
appearance in the text. Place footnotes to tables above the table body and
indicate them with italic letters.
Number figures consecutively in accordance with
their appearance in the text. Place footnotes to figures below the table body
and indicate them with italic letters.
Please ensure that every reference cited in the text
is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Any references cited
in the abstract must be given in full. References should be indicated in the
typescript by giving the author's name, with the year of publication in
parentheses, e.g. (Taylor) 1994; or if there are more than two authors,
Taylor et al. (1999). If several contributions from the same author(s) and
from the same year are cited, (a), (b), (c) etc. should be added after the
year of publication. Electronic references should contain as much information
as possible concerning: the full URL, the date when the reference was last
accessed, DOI, author names, dates. Web references can be listed separately
under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference
References with a non-English title should be
translated into English.
The title, author's name, affiliation and a short
biographical sketch of not more than 50 words should be placed on a separate
page. The title of the article should appear again on the first text page,
without the author's name.
The format of the article is A/4 and should be used
MS-Word. Please make sure that artwork files are in an acceptable format
(TIFF, EPS or MS Office files) and with the correct resolution.

the articles and commentaries on its website.
