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.

  1. The concepts and conclusions included in papers are of the entire responsibility of the authors.
  2. Theoretical and Applied Engineering is a scientific journal edited once every three months by the Federal University of Lavras Publishing House (Editora UFLA) and UFLA Engineering Department. The journal publishes innovative contributions in engineering applications ranging from the integration of instruments, methodologies and technologies and their use in engineering, environmental sciences and other natural sciences. Theoretical and Applied Engineering is devoted to a wide range of subfields in the engineering sciences. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome. The articles must be elaborated by researchers of national and international scientific communities. Submission of a manuscript to this journal requires that it has neither been published nor is under consideration for publication elsewhere. Upon acceptance for publication, authors assign to the journal full copyright of the manuscript in all languages and countries.
  3. Publication process: Submitted manuscripts will be forwarded to the editorial board to be initially evaluated in terms of comparative relevance to other papers of the same area that were submitted for publication. If it is considered as relevant, the paper will be submitted to blind peer reviewers. If approved and if necessary, the manuscript may return to the correspondent author for corrections. If the corrections are not returned within the required deadline, the publication process will be automatically cancelled. Requested corrections not attended without justification may also lead to cancellation. After these revisions, the manuscript will receive corrections of scientific nomenclature, english, and references. Following these corrections, the manuscript will be edited and published.
  4. Cost of publication: There is no publication cost.
  5. Manuscripts must be submitted electronically (http://www.taaeufla.deg.ufla.br/index.php/TAAE/submission/wizard), written in English, and use only conventional abbreviations and nomenclature with no abbreviations in the title. Manuscripts must be edited using the program Microsoft Word for Windows on paper size A4 (21 cm x 29.7cm), double spaced using Times New Roman font, size 12, with a 2.0 cm margin on both left and right hand side, and on upper and lower margins, heading and footnote. All authors must sign the submission letter, containing author's full name with no abbreviations and work address (street, number, zip code, city, state, country and e-mail). At submission, this document must be attached in the field "Cover Letter". Any further insertion, exclusion or alteration in the authors order must be informed by a document signed by all authors (including the excluded author, if the case).
  6. Each manuscript must be organized in the following format: a) TITLE sufficiently clear; conspicuous and complete, without abbreviations and superfluous words, written in English with capital letters. It is recommended to begin with the term that represents the most important aspect, with other terms in decreasing of importance; b) FULL NAME(S) OF THE AUTHOR(S) (without abbreviations) on the right side with one name beneath the former. The manuscript must have a maximum of 6 (six) authors; c) ABSTRACT must be written continuously in one paragraph and it must not exceed 250 words. At least, it must contain a brief introduction, objective(s) and main results, d) INDEX TERMS with 3 to 5 index terms that express the content of the paper and different from those used in the title and separated by commas. Only the first word of the keyword is uppercase and the other keywords must be separeted by commas; e) INTRODUCTION (including literature review and objectives); f) MATERIAL AND METHODS; g) RESULTS AND DISCUSSION (it may include tables and figures); h) CONCLUSION(S); i) ACKNOWLEDGMENT(S) (optional) with serious and clear written style, indicating the reason(s) for the recognition(s); j) REFERENCES.
  7. TABLES: Must contain a clear and concise title, being explanatory and inserted after citation in the text. Tables should not contain vertical lines. Horizontal lines must separate title from the presented data and at the bottom of the table. Tables should be made on Microsoft Word (Table - Insert Table), with each value inserted in a single cell, centrally located.
    The figures listed above must be both inserted after their citation in the text and also sent in separate files attached to the MANUSCRIPT FILES field.
  9. Photographs may be in color or black and white, clear and with contrast, inserted in the text after their citation and also in a separate file, saved in extension "TIFF" or "JPEG" with 300 dpi resolution. Press copies will only publish photographs in black and white.
  10. Figures may be in color or black and white, clear and with contrast, inserted in the text after their citation and also in a separate file, saved in extension "TIFF" or "JPEG" with resolution of 300 dpi. They must be described using Times New Roman font, size 10, without bold, without a text box and arranged in order. Press copies will only publish figures in black and white.
  11. Graphs must be inserted in the text after their citation. Graphs must be described preferentially in Excel, using Times New Roman font, size 10, without bold, saved in XLS extension and transformed into TIFF or JPG files with a resolution of 300 dpi.
  12. Symbols and Chemical Formula must be presented using a word processor that allows editing for Adobe InDesign CS6 (ex: MathType), maintaining their original layout.
