Author Guidelines


The papers to be sent to the International Journal of Earth Sciences Knowledge and Applications should be unpublished previosly and unsubmitted for presentation at events such as symposium, congress, etc. or  another journal simultaneously. In addition, the content of other articles related to the author’s paper should be minimal.

The authors should use to their detailed guidelines when preparing their paper. Editors may return papers that have not been prepared in accordance with these guidelines to the author(s).

The tables, figures and descriptions should be placed at the end of the main file. All text in the “Main File” should be given a line number. In addition, English translations of title, figure and table descriptions should be added. “Main File” should be arranged in accordance with the spelling rules. Files must be MS Word documents(.doc, .docx). Since the editorial board are not take any responsibility for the loss of the papers, authors should keep a copy of their manuscript.

These should be used at a minimum and designed as simple as possible. We strongly recommend author to submit tables as .doc format. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. Preferably, the details of the methods used in the experiments should be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graphical form or repeated in the text. Cells can be copied from an Excel spreadsheet and pasted into a word document, but Excel files should not be embedded as objects.


Note: If the submission is in PDF format, the author is requested to retain the same in .doc format in order to aid in completion of process successfully.




The preferred file formats for photographic images are PNG, TIFF and JPEG. If you have created images with separate components on different layers, please send us the Photoshop files.


All images MUST be at or above intended display size, with the following image resolutions: Line Art 800 dpi, Combination (Line Art + Halftone) 600 dpi, Halftone 300 dpi. See the Image quality specifications chart for details. Image files also must be cropped as close to the actual image as possible.


Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.


Figure legends should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet.


Legends for Tables & Figures:


Table 1: Legend of the Table 1


Figure 1: Legend of the Figure 1


Tables and Equations as Graphics:


If equations cannot be encoded in MathML, submit them in TIFF or EPS format as discrete files (i.e., a file containing only the data for one equation). Only when tables cannot be encoded as XML/SGML can they be submitted as graphics. If this method is used, it is critical that the font size in all equations and tables is consistent and legible throughout all submissions.


Supplementary information:


Discrete items of the Supplementary information (for example, figures, and tables) referred to at an appropriate point in the main text of the paper.

Summary diagram/figure included as part of the Supplementary information (optional).

All Supplementary information is supplied as a single PDF file, if possible. File size within the permitted limits for Supplementary Information. Images should be a maximum size of 640 x 480 pixels
