Types of papers

Research original paper: Research paper reports original and previously unpublished work. It should be a complete and authoritative report of research work, which has a special significance and must be presented clearly and concisely. Research papers should not exceed 10,000 words (including abstract, text, references, acknowledgments, figures and tables). The word count of each figure and table should be estimated based on 1000 words equivalent for one printed page.

Short communication: A short communication will be accepted for the early communication of important and original advances. It should be of significant scientific merit (a novel finding that warrants immediate publication) and will be given priority for rapid publication. Short communications should not exceed 4000 words. 

Letters to Editor: Letter to editor is a written discussion (scientific or technical) about a published article. Letters are accepted on the basis of new scientific insights on the particular topic, critical additional information, relevance to the published paper and timeliness. Authors will be invited to submit a reply to respond to points raised. These letters will be considered for publication only if they contribute an added value or special consideration to a specific article that has already published in the Journal of Advanced Environmental Research and Technology. Letter to editor should be submitted directly to the appropriate editor by e-mail. Publication and/or peer review of submitted letters will occur solely at the editor’s discretion. Letters to editor should not exceed 500 words.

Review: Review articles with the research structure that analyzes other research papers' data and conclusions in the subject field. In the cover letter of review article, corresponding author should state i) a clear indication of the novelty and urgency of such a review paper at this time, ii) a brief description of the authors' academic background and research areas, and iii) a list of journals papers published by the corresponding and first authors on the proposed topic. The length of review paper is flexible but only critical review papers will be considered.

We also encourage systematic reviews that provide a comprehensive summary and critical appraisal of existing evidence. They relate to answering a research question, and are conducted using methods which seek to minimize risk of bias in results and conclusions. A systematic review should include a meta-analysis, which uses statistical techniques to pool the results of multiple individual studies into a combined summary result.

Copyright Form

Changes to authorship

Authors are strongly advised to carefully consider the list and order of authors before submitting their manuscript and provide the final list of authors at the time of the original submission. Any addition, deletion, or rearrangement of author names in the authorship list should be made only before the manuscript has been accepted and only if approved by the journal Editor. To request such a change, the Editor must receive the following from the corresponding author: (a) the reasons for changes in authorship should be explained in detail. All authors should be agreed with the addition, removal, or rearrangement. In the case of addition or removal of authors, this includes confirmation from the author being added or removed. Please note that changes to authorship cannot be made after the acceptance of a manuscript.

Suggesting reviewers

With the submitted manuscript authors are requested to provide full contact details of 5 potential reviewers including email addresses. Please note that the editorial board may not use your suggestions, but your help is appreciated and may speed up the selection of appropriate reviewers. The suggested reviewers should not be from the same institution as the author, or co-authors/collaborators. 

Article structure

·         Subdivision - numbered sections 

Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text.' Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its separate line.

·         Introduction 

State the goals and objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
 

·         Material and methods :

Provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced by an independent researcher. Methods that are already published should be summarized and indicated by a reference. If quoting directly from a previously published method, use quotation marks and cite the source. Any modifications to existing methods should also be described.

 

·         Results :

Results should be clear and concise.

·         Discussion :

This section should explore the significance of the work results, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. 

·         Conclusions :

The study's conclusion should be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.

·         Appendices :

If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on. Similarly, Table A.1; Fig. A.1, etc.

 

Abstract:

Abstract should state briefly the aims of the research, the principal results and major conclusion. So, write abstract in four sections including aims, material and methods, results, and conclusion with maximum length of 300 words. An abstract is presented separately from the article so it must be able to stand alone. Non standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided but if essential, they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.

Keywords :

Immediately after the abstract, write 3 to 6 keywords. In writing keywords, avoid general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.

Graphical abstract :

Although a graphical abstract is optional, its use is inspired to draw more attention to the online article. The graphical abstract should summarize the article's contents in a brief, visual form designed to capture the attention of a wide readership. Graphical abstracts should be submitted separately in the online submission system. Image size: Please provide an image with a minimum of 531 × 1328 pixels (h × w) or proportionally more. The image should be readable at 5 × 13 cm using a regular screen resolution of 96 dpi. TIFF, EPS, PDF, or MS Office files are preferred file types.

Abbreviations:

Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter. Such abbreviations that are unavoidable in the abstract must be defined at their first mention there, as well as in the footnote.

Acknowledgements :

Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.).

Formatting of funding sources :

List funding sources in this standard way to facilitate compliance to funder's requirements:

Funding: This work was supported by the Iran National Science Foundation [grant numbers xxxx, yyyy]; and Tarbiat Modares University [grant number aaaa].

If no funding has been provided for the research, please include the following sentence:

This research did not receive any specific grant from funding agencies in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors.

References

Reference style

Citing the references in all necessary cases should be fully observed (the referencing guide can be found here). For reference, the numbering system should be used (Vancouver Style). Thus, the references should be listed in the reference list based on the order of use in the main text, and they should be numbered orderly. The number of the given reference should be brought in brackets []. If there is more than one number in a [], the numbers must increase from left to right and be separated by “,” (e.g., [8, 11, 42]. If there are more than two following numbers, they must separate with “-“ (e.g., [12, 25, 32-38, 44-51]. Notice that the only valid references for scholarly articles are those with peer-reviewed content, mean published articles in peer-reviewed journals; books, web pages, conference papers and posters, thesis and dissertations, and so on are not appropriate references for scholarly articles. Due to this, at least 80% of the cited references of the submitted papers MUST be published articles in peer-reviewed journals.
