Author Guidelines

International Journal of Robotics and Automation (IJRA) is the official publication of the Institute of Advanced Engineering and Science (IAES). The journal is an open access, international peer reviewed journal which is providing a platform to researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners/professionals throughout the world to publish the latest creations and achievement, future challenges and exciting applications of manufacture and applications of robots and computer systems for their control and automation, sensory feedback, and information technology to reduce the need for human work. Robots are becoming part of people's everyday social lives and will increasingly become so. In future years, robots may become caretaker assistants for the elderly or academic tutors for our children, or medical assistants, day care assistants, or psychological counselors. Robots may become our co-workers in factories and offices, or maids in our homes. IJRA aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports and short communications in all areas of the field and making them freely available through online without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to researchers worldwide. This journal is aiming to push the frontier of robotics into a new dimension, in which motion and intelligence play equally important roles. Its scope includes (but not limited) to the following: automation control, automation engineering, autonomous robots, biotechnology and robotics, emergence of the thinking machine, forward kinematics, household robots and automation, inverse kinematics, Jacobian and singularities, methods for teaching robots, nanotechnology and robotics (nanobots), orientation matrices, robot controller, robot structure and workspace, robotic and automation software development, robotic exploration, robotic surgery, robotic surgical procedures, robotic welding, robotics applications, robotics programming, robotics technologies, robots society and ethics, software and hardware designing for robots, spatial transformations, trajectory generation, unmanned (robotic) vehicles, etc.

The Types of papers
The types of papers that may be considered for inclusion are:
1)   Original research;
2)   Short communications and;
3)   Review papers, which include meta-analysis and systematic review

How to submit your manuscript
All manuscripts should be submitted online at http://iaescore.com/journals/index.php/IJRA (Authors are able to submit manuscripts to the journal directly through the journal's website)

To make a submission, you must have a user account and be enrolled as an Author. User accounts can either be created by the Journal Manager or you can register yourself (this journal policy allow you create user account by yourself as a Reader, an Author and/or a Reviewer). All fields with an asterisk beside them (Username; Password; Repeat Password; First Name; Last Name; Email) are mandatory. Your username and your email address must be unique; furthermore, while you can change your email address at a later date, you will be unable to change your username. If you want to register in another role within the same journal (for example, if you are already a Reader, but also want to become an Author) you can log in; go to Edit My Profile (under My Account on your User Home page); and check off the checkboxes next to any available roles, near the bottom of the page. Once you have an account, log in to the journal site and select the role of Author.

The Author is asked to upload a submission file and to provide metadata or indexing information.
(The metadata improves the search capacity for research online and for the journal.) The Author can upload Supplementary Files, in the form of data sets, research instruments, or source texts that will enrich the item, as well as contribute to more open and robust forms of research and scholarship. The Author is able to track the submission through the review and editorial process by logging in to the journal's website.

General Guidelines

  • Use the IJECE guide of authors as template and your guideline for preparing your papers. (MS Word file format: DOCX or LATEX file format: https://www.iaescore.com/ourfiles/IAES_Latex.zip).
  • Ensure that each new paragraph is clearly indicated. Present tables and figure legends on separate pages at the end of the manuscript.
  • Number all pages consecutively. Manuscripts should also be spellchecked by the facility available in most good word-processing packages.
  • Extensive use of italics and emboldening within the text should be avoided.
  • Papers should be clear, precise and logical and should not normally exceed 4,000 words.
  • The Abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, provide a clear statement of the problem, the proposed approach or solution, and point out major findings and conclusions. The Abstract should be 150 to 250 words in length. The abstract should be written in the past tense.
  • The keyword list provides the opportunity to add keywords, used by the indexing and abstracting services, in addition to those already present in the title. Judicious use of keywords may increase the ease with which interested parties can locate our article.
  • The Introduction should provide a clear background, a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, the proposed approach or solution, and the new value of research which it is innovation. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.
  • Explaining research chronological, including research design and research procedure. The description of the course of research should be supported references, so the explanation can be accepted scientifically.
  • Tables and Figures are presented center.
  • In the results and discussion section should be explained the results and at the same time is given the comprehensive discussion.
  • A good conclusion should provide a statement that what is expected, as stated in the "Introduction" section can ultimately result in "Results and Discussion" section, so there is compatibility. Moreover, it can also be added the prospect of the development of research results and application prospects of further studies into the next (based on the results and discussion).
  • Author must provide at least 25 references. References should be cited in text by numbering system
    (in IEEE style), [1,2] and so on. Only references cited in text should be listed at the end of the paper. 

One author should be designated as corresponding author and provide the following information:
• E-mail address
• Full postal address
• Telephone and fax numbers

Please note that any papers which fail to meet our requirements will be returned to the author for amendment. Only papers which are submitted in the correct style will be considered by the Editors.
