- The article can be in simple word format or in the GCISTEM template (DOCX).
- The main manuscript has to be in the range between 3500-9000 words without references and abstract with font size 9, Arial.
- The corresponding author should provide an official institution email address in the manuscript.
A concise and actual 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 should be avoided, but if essential, they must be cited in full, without reference to the reference list. Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.
Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 5 keywords, avoiding 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. Use comma (“,”) to separate the keywords. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.
Article structure: Divide your article into clearly defined sections. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.
Reference formatting There are no strict requirements on reference formatting at submission. References can be in any style or format as long as the style is consistent. Where applicable, author(s) name(s), journal title/book title, chapter title/article title, year of publication, volume number/book chapter, and the pagination must be present. If you do wish to format the references yourself they should be arranged according to the following.
Use ISI Journal Title Abbreviation which can be found at http://www.efm.leeds.ac.uk/~mark/ISIabbr/A_abrvjt.html. References should be individually numbered in the order in which they are cited in the text (including tables and figure captions assuming they will be located where they are first mentioned in the text), and listed in numerical sequence on separate sheets at the end of the paper, typed in double spacing. The numbers (no alphabetical characters) should appear in the text at the appropriate places in square brackets [ ]. In the reference list, periodicals , books , multiauthor books with editors , proceedings , and patents  should be cited in accordance with the following examples:
 M. Hataka, H. Hattori, T. Imai, Appl. Catal. A 121 (1995) 1.
