Items Guidelines
Length The typical length of an article is 6-25 pages with more than 2000 words. Provided that the scientific content is of high value, shorter or longer manuscripts will also be taken into consideration.
Title Titles must fit on three lines in print (at most 25 words) and should avoid abbreviations. The first letter of notional words in the title should be capitalized and functional words lowercased.
Authors Authors’ full names should be provided without professional ranks and titles. Corresponding author(s) should be identified with an asterisk. Authors’ affiliation should include “Department/Faculty, University/Institute, City, Country” or “Company, City, Country”.
Abstract The abstract should be no more than 400 words and should not contain citations or unexplained abbreviations/acronyms. The general scope of the article, the main results and conclusions should be summarized.
Keywords The keywords should be concise and distinctive, and there should be no more than 5 words in each keyword except for the proper nouns.
Introduction The introduction should include the background, objectives and an overview or a map of the whole paper.
Methods The Methods section appears in most online original research articles and should contain all elements necessary for interpretation and replication of the results.
Tables Each table should be given a caption above it and numbered successively, such as Table 1, Table 2, Table 3... Further details can be included as notes to the table.
Figures Suitably high resolution figures may be inserted within the text at appropriate positions. Each figure should be given a caption below it and numbered successively, such as Figure 1, Figure 2, Figure 3...
Main body The main body should include the main results, discussions and conclusion.
Acknowledgments The part of the “Acknowledgments” should be specific such as acknowledgment for specific persons, funds or projects. If it's a project or fund, the project/funding number should be provided.
References

There should be at least 15 references in an academic article. List only one reference per reference number. The in-text citations should be numbered in the corresponding position of the main body in the normal text form of [] (such as [1], [2], [3] ...) instead of other forms (such as “(John Smith, 2019) or (2019)”). For example:

True: “... and both groups are active in identifying and using neural networks and decision trees [1].”

False: “... and both groups are active in identifying and using neural networks and decision trees (John Smith, 2019).”

When there are two or more references cited in the same sentence or paragraph, all the reference numbers should be enclosed in one bracket, such as [2, 3], [6-8] and [4, 9-12].

Word Processing Formats

Before submission, please ensure that your articles are in the form of Microsoft word 2000/2003(doc) or Microsoft word 2007/2010(docx). These two forms of the articles are acceptable for all of Science Publishing Group journals in order to typeset the articles into SciencePG’s style.

Journal Article Workflow

Once you complete the submission process, there will be a manuscript number popping up. It means your manuscript has been submitted successfully. There is no need to submit your manuscript again after that.

Next, your paper will be considered by the editor and if it passes the pre-review, it will be sent for peer review by experts in your field. The whole publication process is shown as below:
