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 Microsoft Word document file format.
  • Presenting your work in well-written English gives it its best chance for editors and reviewers to understand it and evaluate it fairly.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  • For first submission, all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate positions for review purpose.
  • Figures are uploaded separately in a single Word document and denoted as "Others" for copyediting purpose.
  • When submitting your manuscript you are required to suggest 3 potential peer reviewers. The editors will not necessarily invite your suggested reviewers but these suggestions can help speed up the peer review process.

Author Guidelines

IJNeaM Template

All papers should be submitted via through this website.


The electronic manuscript shall be prepared in accordance with the “Author Guidelines”. Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, its publication is approved by all authors and that, if accepted, will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher.

All submitted manuscripts will undergo double-blinded peer review. The peer-reviewed original research manuscripts and research review manuscripts of substance will be published online. The Editors reserve the right to edit or otherwise make necessary amendments deemed fit, but authors will receive proofs for approval before publication.


Paper Selection and Publication Process

  1. Upon receipt of paper submission, the Editor will respond to the corresponding within 7 working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, your submission/e-mail may be missed.
  2. We use a double-blind system for peer-review. The paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts; one is an editorial staff and the other is an external reviewer. The review process may take 8 - 12 weeks.
  3. Notification of the result of the review will be sent by e-mail.



Page proofs will be sent to the corresponding author for final checking. Corrections to the proofs must be restricted to printer’s errors: any other changes to the text, in equations or grammar, may be charged to the author. Proofs should be returned to the editors within three days of receipt to minimize the risk of the author’s contribution having to be held over to a later issue. The editors do not accept responsibility for the correctness of published contents. It is the author’s responsibility to check the content at the proof stage.


Plagiarism Checking

A policy of screening for plagiarism shall be performed using platform. Authors shall attach the Turnitin report with each submission. A similarity percentage of 0-20% is acceptable.


Cost of Publication

Publication in this journal is subjected to the payment of Article Processing Charge (APC) of MYR 500 per paper.



Offprints are not available.


Frequency of Publication

Published in January, April, July, and October.




Manuscripts should be prepared in Microsoft Word file format. All manuscripts will follow the same general style as described in this document. The manuscript template can be downloaded from this Word Format.  The editors reserve the right to edit these files to ensure every article follows the same style.

General Rules

  • The article shall be written in good English (either American or British is accepted, but not a mixture of both)
  • The minimum article size is 6 full pages. The paper length between 3,000 to 8,000 words is preferred.
  • The manuscript shall be formatted for an A4 size page.
  • The body text shall have both the left and right margins justified with single line spacing.
  • The font type for the main body text shall be Cambria and size 10 points unless otherwise stated.
  • Paragraph Spacing before and after is 0 pt i.e. no blank lines between paragraphs
  • All paragraphs in each section or subsection is not indented.
  • Sections and subsections should be formatted to two levels:

    Heading 1 (Section heading): Cambria; Size - 10; Bold. Single-spaced before and single-spaced after

    1.1Research Methods

    Heading 2 (Subheading): Cambria; Size - 10; Bold; capitalize each word, single-spaced before and after

Manuscript Structure

The manuscript should be organized into clearly defined sections, namely, introduction, literature review, methods, results and discussion, conclusion, acknowledgments (if any), references and appendices (if any). Sections and subsections should be formatted as heading levels 1 and 2 as shown in General Rules. Any subsection, ideally, should not be more than 700 words. Authors are encouraged to write as concisely as possible, but not at the expense of clarity.

Title of the Paper

The title should be concise and informative to adequately describe the content of the paper as it is often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formula wherever possible. The title is aligned to the left and is set in boldface (font size 14 pt). Only the first word in the title should be capitalized.

Authors’ Names and Affiliations

The author’s name is provided below the title and followed by the author’s affiliation. Please state the given name and family name clearly. If the article was written by more than one author, append their name to the first author. If the authors are with different affiliations, assign a sequential superscript alphabet (beginning with “a”) immediately after the author's name and precedes the author’s affiliation. However, authors with the same affiliation will bear the same alphabet.

The names and affiliations are aligned to the left (font size 9 pt, italic). A blank line is required to separate the title, the author's name list and the affiliation.

Corresponding Author’s E-mail

An email address of the author who is willing to handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing, publication, and post-publication is stated following the last affiliation of authors. Clearly, indicate by placing an asterisk (“*”) after the author’s name and before the email address.

The email address should use Cambria font size, 9pt italic.


A concise and factual abstract is required in one (1) paragraph. The abstract should be no longer than 250 words. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the methodology, the principal result, and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separate from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. Do not cite references in the abstract.


Immediately after the abstract, provide between 3 to 5 keywords to clearly describe the subject matter, avoiding general and plural terms as well as multiple concepts. The keywords are listed in the lower case, alphabetical order, separated by commas and aligned to the left (font size 9 pt).

Figures and Tables

Figures are numbered consecutively and the caption is placed centered below the figure. Similarly, tables are numbered consecutively in order of their appearance in the text. However, place the caption above the table body. Avoid vertical rules. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Present figures and tables after the text which they are referenced as “Figure 1” or “Table 1”.


Equations are displayed separately from the paragraphs of text. They should be flushed to the left of the page. The equation should be numbered consecutively. All equation numbers must appear in parentheses and on the right-hand side of the equation. Refer to equations in the text as "(1)". The text size of formula should be 10 points.


A conclusion section is required and should clearly discuss the advantages, limitations, possible applications and recommendations for future research.


Please acknowledge any organizations that have sponsored or supported this research. Individuals other than the authors who have given direct assistance could be acknowledged.


Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the authors. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Citations in the text and reference list should follow the IEEE referencing style.

Citing and Listing of Web References

As a minimum, the full URL should be given. Any further information, if known (author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc), should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired or can be included in the reference list.
