Abstract. The document template provides detailed instructions for preparing and submitting a paper to the Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences in Industry (EASI). Please follow these instructions: a) type the body of the paper in a single column; b) use preferably no more than 6000 words for body text in A4 format (210 x 297mm), each page formatted with 2.54 cm (1 in) margins on all sides (do not print any border around the text and do not insert page numbers); c) use 10 pt Times New Roman throughout the body, except for the title and affiliations; d) type up to 200 words in the abstract (manuscripts in English does not need to provide the abstract in Spanish); e) always use single-spaced lines, justified alignment; f) quote in-text reference using basics of APA format, 7th edition, e.g. “...of mechanical forces (Sendak, 2015)…”, and list them in alphabetical order; g) supply good quality figures/photographs (up to 300dpi); h) define all symbols as they appear in the text; i) use only SI units. The journal uses metadata for indexing submissions (Dublin Core, TM). The paper may be written in English (preferred) or Spanish.
Keywords: First keyword, Second keyword, Third keyword (up to 5 keywords). We encourage you to include keywords that are currently most searched by colleagues from around the world.
Palabras claves: palabra 1, palabra 2, palabra 3, palabra 4 (5 palabras máximo)
All manuscripts to the journal must be submitted online at https://revistas.ug.edu.ec/index.php/easi. Full versions of all published papers will remain available on the journal website. It is therefore extremely important that you prepare the digital version of your contribution in accordance with the present instructions.
The section titles follow the standard structure accepted for most manuscripts for journals (after the Title and Abstract): Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion and Conclusions.
2. TYPING INSTRUCTIONS
The paper must be written in English (preferred), Portuguese or Spanish.
2.1. Paper length
The full paper including figures and tables should be preferably no longer than 8000 words in A4 format (210 x 297mm). Please limit your paper by writing concisely, rather than by reducing figures or tables to a size at which symbols/labels become easy to read. The final PDF file should be smaller than 2 Mb.
2.2. Page format
Each A4-size page should be formatted with 25.4mm (1 in) margins on all sides. This defines the printable area for all pages. Inside this area, the text must be arranged in a single column after the abstract and keywords. Please do not print any border around the text and do not insert page numbers.
The final paper should look like the template for articles.
2.3. General text specifications
The paper must be typed using 10 pt Times New Roman throughout the text, as in the present document. This includes title, headings, figure and table captions. The first page must include the paper title, authors/affiliation, abstract and keywords. Manuscripts in Spanish must contain an abstract written in English.
The title should be in boldface type, in all capital letters, left-aligned on the page and must not exceed three lines. It should be single spaced if longer than one line. Skip one line (12 pt) between the title and the first author.
Author(s) and affiliation
Type no more than five authors’ names in boldface type, flush left, one per line, including first name and last name to reduce perceived predation risks and post-conflict affiliation (Logan, C. et al., 2013). Each name or group of names must be followed by the corresponding affiliation (8 pt), which should be in regular type (neither boldfaced nor italicized). Skip two lines (24 pt) between the last affiliation and the abstract.
Abstract and keywords
Type the heading Abstract in the second column, in boldface and flush left, followed by a period. On the same line, type the abstract in Times new roman 10, left-aligned. The abstract should be no longer than 200 words. Skip one line, then type the heading Keywords: (don't forget the colon) in boldface, flush left and type 3 to 5 keywords, separated by commas, with only the first letter of each keyword capitalized.
Type a first-level head in all capital letters, boldface type, flush left. Begin by typing the Arabic number followed by a period, and then type the head title. Leave one blank line above and one below this head.
For a second-level head, capitalize only the first letter, using boldface type, flush left. Begin by typing the double number and then type the sub-head title. Leave one blank line above and one below this head.
Do not number third-level heads. Use boldface italics, capitalizing only the first letter and indenting 0.75 cm from the left margin. Leave one 10pt-blank line above this head.
Body of text
The text should be typed using single-spaced lines and justified alignment. Start each paragraph 0.75 cm from the left margin and allow no space between paragraphs.
2.4. Equations, symbols and units
Indent an equation center. Number it with an Arabic number enclosed in parentheses placed flush right. Allow one blank line above and one below an equation.
Symbols should be italicized throughout the text. Define all symbols as they appear in the text. A nomenclature section is not necessary.
2.5. Figures and Tables
Figures and tables should be inserted as close as possible to their mention in the text. Enclosed text and symbols must be clearly readable; avoid small symbols. Use good quality pictures and illustrations.
Figures must be professionally edited. Avoid light colors. Dark or patterned backgrounds may be unsuitable for reading. Figures should be inserted into the text and submitted in separate TIFF files. Please submit at 300 dpi or higher. The final ZIP file containing pictures and illustrations should be smaller than 3 Mb. OJS page will provide a special section for you to accomplish this task.
Figures and tables, and the captions should be centered in the text. Place figure caption below the figure and one 10pt-blank line should be left between both. Place table title above the table, also leaving one blank line between them. Leave one blank line between the table or figure and the adjacent text.
In-text references should be cited according to basic APA format, 7th edition. For example: "In a classical work of Mattiasson, K. (1980)…"
References must be listed according to the order they are cited in the text at the end of the paper. Type the word REFERENCES in all capitals, boldface type from the left margin, skip one line and type the reference list. In each reference, indent all lines 0.75 cm. Each reference must be cited in the text. The last page contains an example of a reference list including a book, a proceeding, a journal article, an edited book, and a dissertation based on basic APA.
3. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
From Victoria University (2022): “Paraphrasing is when you are summarizing the words or expressing the ideas of the author(s) in your own words. When paraphrasing you must acknowledge the original source in the text of your writing. Include the author's surname and year of publication in round brackets, or if including the author(s) name anywhere in the sentence, place the year of publication in round brackets next to the author's name: (Leskowitz, 2017) or Leskowitz (2017).
When paraphrasing there is more than one way to place the citation within your text”.
Before submitting your paper, please check again to find and correct any errors, to ensure that: (a) the technical content (e.g., formulae, data in tables) is accurate; (b) all elements are properly formatted (e.g., all charts are readable); (c) the paper is written in good English (both spelling and grammar).
Manuscripts not adherence with this layout shall be reformatted by the author(s) or be rejected.
This section should follow the conclusions. Type Acknowledgements in boldface italics, skip one line of space and type the text in regular type.
Declaration of Conflicting Interests
You are responsible for making sure that you have the right to publish everything in your paper.

Please, declare any financial interests or connections, or other issues that might affect third-party interests at the end of your manuscript and prior to reference list. If no declaration is made, the following line will appear instead: ‘None Declared’. Alternatively, you may choose to report that ‘The author(s) declared no potential conflicts of interest within this research, authorship, and/or publication of this article’.
