Author Guidelines

Submission to this journal proceeds totally online. Submissions mailed to the editorial office will not be processed. Use the following guidelines to prepare your article.


Please submit your manuscript together with suplementary files ;
(2) RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT (3-5 points, maximum 100 characters, including spaces, per bullet point) and
(3) List of POTENTIAL REFEREES (at least 2 referees) with the current EMAIL addresses.

Note that the editor retains the sole right to decide whether or not the suggested reviewers are used.

Format article
Word template can be found at http://www.ibnusina.utm.my/2012_MJFAS_template.doc. The number of page should not be less than 6 pages.

A concise and factual abstract is required (length: 100 - 300 words). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separate 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 "|" to separate the keywords e.g. "| keyword 1 | keyword 2 |". These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.

Article structure : Subdivision - numbered sections
Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to "the text". Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.

Reference Style
Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature. 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 [1], books [2], multiauthor books with editors [3], proceedings [4], and patents [5] should be cited in accordance with the following examples:

[1] M. Hataka, H. Hattori, T. Imai, Appl. Catal. A 121 (1995) 1-10.
[2] Bragg, An Investigation on Promoted Iron Catalysts for the Synthesis of Ammonia, Jul. Giellerups Forlag, Copenhagen, 1968, p. 72.
[3] M.V. Sargent, F.M. Albert, in: A.R. Katrizky, C.W. Rees (Eds.), Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry, Pergamon Press, Oxford, 1977, p. 599.
[4] F.E. Lucas, M. Karger, F. Probst, B. Schutter, in: P. Jena, C.B. Satterthwaite (Eds.), Electronic Structure and Properties of Hydrogen in Metals, Proc. NATO Int. Symp., Richmond, VA, 4-6 March 1982, Plenum, New York, 1983, p. 581.
[5] J. Santiesteban, US Patent 3 972 983 (1986), to Mobil Oil Corporation.

Revision Manuscript
Revised manuscripts should be returned including revision notes. The revision notes should address the issues raised in the referee report and clearly state per page (indicate paragraph and line) which changes have been made. Additional materials may be requested at the discretion of the editor.

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 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).

2. The manuscript has to be submitted together with suplementary files ;
(2) RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT (3-5 points, maximum 100 characters, including spaces, per bullet point) and
(3) List of POTENTIAL REFEREES (at least 2 referees) with the current EMAIL addresses.

3. The submission file is in Microsoft Word and has followed the format given. (Please refer to the template (download at http://www.ibnusina.utm.my/2012_MJFAS_template.doc) as a general guideline.)
