Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission’s compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  • If your article receives a favorable response from the plagiarism system and from the reviewers, the publication fee is 100 Euro

Author Guidelines

You will submit your paper in PDF format using the template.

Technium uses author-supplied PDFs for all online and print publication. Authors are asked to prepare their papers using Microsoft Word, according to the template and then convert these files to PDF.
Please ensure that when you submit your paper, it is in its final form ready for publication and has been thoroughly proofread. Technium do not copyedit papers and will not send out author proofs prior to publication.
As a summary, when preparing your paper, follow the guidelines included with the template, and use the following checklist:

  • Paper size is A4.
  • Margins are at least 25mm all round.
  • The paper includes the author name and affiliation (full address including country).
  • There are no page numbers, or headers and footers, within the paper.
  • The PDF is free of formatting errors (e.g. corrupt equations, missing or poor resolution figures), since conversion from Word to PDF can introduce formatting errors.
  • Text is single spaced, not double spaced.
  • The PDF file is editable and not password protected.
  • All pages are portrait (landscape pages should be rotated).
  • Reference lists are checked for accuracy. References can only be linked via CrossRef if they are correct and complete.
  • Figures are placed within the text, not collected at the end of the document.
  • A thorough proof read is conducted to check standard of English and ensure wording is clear and concise.
  • Ensure that your paper includes an abstract.
