Introduction Section

Make the introduction section as comprehensive as possible for the readers, especially those in the particular? field of research.

  • Begin with the existing body of knowledge, from a broader scope to a more specific area; highlight why it is important.
  • Provide the following critical aspects adequately:
  • Discussion of Past Publications: Explore the evolution of the research topic, and analyze contributions of past publications to the existing body of knowledge;
  • Identification of Research Gap: Articulate the specific gap in current knowledge that the proposed research aims to address by synthesizing findings from at least five recent key literature; highlight areas in the literature where gaps or limitations exist;
  • Novelty of Proposed Research: Clearly articulate how the proposed research is novel and establish the unique contributions it brings to the field;
  • Rationale of Proposed Research: Provide a rationale for the chosen research direction, and explain how the study builds upon or diverges from existing research;
  • Objectives of the Proposed Research: Clearly state the specific goals and objectives of the research and offer a roadmap for readers to understand the intended outcomes and contributions.
  • Refer to at least 25 references (in total); cite the latest primary references i.e., the publication from internationally reputable journals and/or conference proceedings published approx. within the last 10 years.
  • Do not use up the manuscript length by over-detailing/describing a particular knowledge's basic theoretical ground (basic theory).

 Methods Section

  • Provide structured and sufficient details of methods, techniques, and/or approaches used in the proposed study to allow the work to be reproducible (by other scholars) in the future.
  • For novel methods/techniques/approaches, describe them in detail.
  • For well-established methods/techniques/approachesdescribe them briefly. Simply cite a reference where readers can find it in more detail.
  • If quoting directly from a previously published method, use quotation marks and cite the source. If any modifications to existing methods, describe them sufficiently.
  • Indicate the participants observed, including demographic data, number of respondents, the rationale of respondent selection, etc.
  • Describe the design of the experiment in detail, such as the experiment procedures, surveys, interviews, observation characteristics, etc.

 Results and Discussion Section

  • This section is a mix of results-discussion.
  • Emphasize more on presenting and discussing the main result.
  • Avoid extensive presentation of the following:
  • Raw (input) data;
  • Computation results are obtained from step-by-step procedures in many tables and/or figures. Instead, summarize these results in a concise and meaningful table/figure and conclude it.
  • If either raw (input) data or those detailed results are to be presented, put it in the Appendix section. A maximum of a two-page appendix is allowed.
  • A discussion should interpret the significance of the main results/findings and not just repeat mentioning the result already shown in tables and/or figures.
  • For research on hypothesis testing, explain how the results relate to the hypothesis and provide a succinct explanation of the implications of the findings, particularly to previous related studies.
  • Provide the name and version of any software used and make clear whether the computer code used is available.

Conclusion Section

  • The conclusions should answer the research objectives.
  • Highlight the main findings (not detailed numerical results), and elaborate the research implications to the research domain (industrial engineering-related domain) and the general audience.
  • If the findings are preliminary, suggest future studies that need to be carried out.


Those who contribute but do not meet all criteria for authorship should not be listed as authors but should be acknowledged in this section. Only the names of the persons (not their roles) should be written.

Funding Information

All manuscripts should include a statement of funding in sentences under a separate heading entitled “Funding” right before the References section. The funding agency should be written out in full, followed by the grant number in square brackets, as in the following example:

The author(s) disclosed receipt of the following financial support for the research, authorship, and/or publication of this article: This work was supported by the YYYY Council [grant number: XXX].

In cases where no specific funding has been provided for the research, the funding statement is written as follows:

The author(s) received no financial support for this article's research, authorship, and/or publication.


  • The author (s) should strictly follow the IEEE reference style. The style should be carefully checked for completeness, accuracy, and consistency. Each citation should be written in the order of appearance in the text in square brackets. References should be cited in the text by numbering system (in IEEE style), [1], [2], [3], and so on. Only references cited in the text should be listed at the end of the paper. For example, the first citation [1], the second citation [2], and the third and fourth citations [3], [4]. When citing multiple sources at once, the preferred method is to list each number separately, in its own brackets, using a comma or dash between numbers, such as: [1], [3], [5].
  • Include the DOI (whichever applies).
  • The total number of references should be at least 25 references.
  • The use of the most recent primary references should be at least 60% of the total number of references.
  • The use of EndNote, Mendeley, Zotero or others as a tool in referencing is preferable and encouraged.
