IJARCSET: strives to publish articles of general interest to the profession. Articles should be clearly written, address topics that are important for a broad group of engineers and computer scientists.
The editorial board particularly desires to attract expository articles written for a general audience on topics of current importance in areas including, but not limited to computer science, and engineering. Articles that have previously been published or that are under review by another journal will not be considered for publication.
Letters to the Editor: Concise expressions of fact and interpretation pertinent to contributions published in IJARCSET will be considered for publication if they are received by the editor within three months of publication of the contribution. Exceptions to this time limit will be granted if there are extenuating circumstances.
Corrections: Readers are urged to send to the editor notices of errors found in this or any previous volume. These corrections will appear as Letters to the Editors. Authors wishing to correct errors in their own published papers should contact the editor. These will appear as Corrections.
Guidelines for Manuscripts: Manuscripts are refereed by a double-blind process. . Please submit a blinded, as well as an unblinded version. The manuscript must contain an abstract (see the abstracts paragraph below) and from three to six key words or phrases.
Manuscript Length: There is no maximum length for manuscripts, but shorter manuscripts are easier to review. In most manuscripts have fewer than 20 double- spaced pages, including text, figures, tables, and references.
Figures and Tables: Figures and tables should be numbered consecutively at the top, and clearly titled and labeled.
Abstracts: Each manuscript should contain an extended abstract of 200–400 words. The first 100 words should succinctly describe the paper’s motivation and contribution. References should not be cited the abstract.
Results Based on Computation: Papers reporting results based on computation should provide enough information so that readers can evaluate the quality of the results. Such information includes estimated accuracy of results, as well caused.
Appendixes: Lengthy technical portions of a manuscript should appear in a separate appendix to the manuscript.
References: References are to be cited in text with the authors’ names and dates of publication.
Organization: Manuscripts must be organized in the following manner:
Title Page; Abstract and Key Words; Article Text; Acknowledgments (if applicable); Appendices;
References; Tables; Figure titles and legends;
The title page should include: the article title in upper- and lowercase letters; the name(s) of author(s) in upper-and lowercase letters,
the affiliation(s) including complete address for all author(s); email address.
Copyright: IJARCSET is copyrighted, and authors must sign a copyright transfer to the publisher before publication.
Submitting Revised Manuscripts: Revised manuscripts that are resubmitted more than six months after the last action by the editor may be considered as new submissions.

Reasonable effort has been made to publish reliable data and information, but the author and the publisher cannot assume responsibility for the validity of all materials or for the consequences of the use.
All rights reserved. No part of this publication may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system or transmitted, in any form, or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording or otherwise, without prior permission, in writing, from the publisher or the author.
Submit manuscripts in Microsoft word file as e-mail attachment to the Editorial Office at:email@example.com. You can also upload your article through Online Submission. Papers sent in pdf format will not be accepted. A manuscript number will be mailed to the corresponding author within 48 hours. For all other correspondence that cannot be sent by e-mail, please contact the editorial office (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the appropriate address or editorial board member to mail it to.
Every manuscript should contain the covering letter, which includes the corresponding author’s full address and telephone/fax numbers and should be in an e-mail message sent to the Editor, with the file. The authors may also suggest panel of two to four reviewers attached with the manuscript (IJAR may designate other reviewers).
Three types of manuscripts may be submitted:
These should describe new and carefully confirmed findings, and experimental procedures should be given in sufficient detail for others to verify the work. The length of a full paper should be the minimum required to describe and interpret the work clearly.
A Short Communication is suitable for recording the results of complete small investigations or giving details of new models or hypotheses, innovative methods, techniques or apparatus. The style of main sections need not conform to that of full- length papers. Short communications are 2 to 4 printed pages (about 6 to 12 manuscript pages) in length.
Submissions of reviews and perspectives covering topics of current interest are welcome and encouraged. Reviews should be concise and no longer than 4-6 printed pages (about 12 to 18 manuscript pages). Review Articles are also peer-reviewed.
All manuscripts are reviewed by the editorial board and assigned reviewers. Decisions will be made as rapidly as possible, and the journal strives to return reviewer’s comments to authors within 2 weeks. The editorial board will re-review manuscripts that are pending for revision. It is the goal of the IJAR to publish accepted manuscripts within 2 weeks after submission.
- All portions of the manuscript must be typed double-spaced and all pages numbered starting from the title page.
- The Title should be a brief phrase describing the contents of the paper. The Title Page should include the authors’ full names and affiliations, the name of the corresponding author along with phone, fax and E-mail information.
- The Abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, briefly present the topic, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant data, and point out major findings and conclusions. The Abstract should be 100 to 250 words in length. Complete sentences, active verbs, and the third person should be used, and the abstract should be written in the past tense. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided.
- Following the abstract, about 3 to 6 key words that will provide indexing references to should be listed.
- The Introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, and the proposed approach or solution. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.
- Materials and methods should be complete enough to allow experiments to be reproduced. However, only truly new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited, and important modifications of published procedures should be mentioned briefly. Capitalize trade names and include the manufacturer’s name and address. Subheadings should be used.
- Results should be presented with clarity and precision. The results should be written in the past tense when describing findings in the authors’ experiments. Previously published findings should be written in the present tense. Results should be explained, but largely without referring to the literature. Discussion, speculation and detailed interpretation of data should not be included in the Results but should be put into the Discussion section.
- The Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained in this and in past studies on this topic. State the conclusions in a few sentences at the end of the paper. The Results and Discussion sections can include subheadings, and when appropriate, both sections can be combined.
- The Acknowledgment of people, grants, funds, etc should be brief.
- Tables should be kept to a minimum and be designed to be as simple as possible. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory without reference to the text. The details of the methods used in the experiments should preferably be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph form or repeated in the text.
- Figure legends should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet. Graphics should be prepared using Microsoft Word manuscript file. Tables should be prepared in Microsoft Word. Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper case letters for their parts (Fig 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.
- References: In the text, a reference identified by means of an author‘s name should be followed by the date of the reference in parentheses. When there are more than two authors, only the first author‘s name should be mentioned, followed by ’et al‘. In the event that an author cited has had two or more works published during the same year, the reference, both in the text and in the reference list, should be identified by a lower case letter like ’a‘ and ’b‘ after the date to distinguish the works.

References should be listed at the end of the paper in alphabetical order. Articles in preparation or articles submitted for publication, unpublished observations, personal communications, etc. should not be included in the reference list but should only be mentioned in the article text (e.g., A. Kingori, University of Nairobi, Kenya, personal communication). Journal names are abbreviated according to Chemical Abstracts. Authors are fully responsible for the accuracy of the references.

Short Communications are limited to a maximum of three figures and one table. They should present a complete study that is more limited in scope than is found in full-length papers. The items of manuscript preparation listed above apply to Short Communications with the following differences: (1) Abstracts are limited to 100 words; (2) instead of a separate Materials and Methods section, experimental procedures may be incorporated into Figure Legends and Table footnotes; (3) Results and Discussion should be combined into a single section.
Proofs, Reprints and manuscript charges: Electronic proofs will be sent (e-mail attachment) to the corresponding author as a PDF file. Page proofs are considered to be the final version of the manuscript. With the exception of typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage. Because IJAR will be published online, authors will have free electronic access to the full text (PDF) of the article. Authors can freely download the PDF file from which they can print unlimited copies of their articles.
The accepted manuscripts will be published online free of cost, but the authors have to pay processing fees only which will be very nominal. Before the accepted paper is published we will intimate the fees in the acceptance letter. Kindly note that ability to pay the publication fee doesn’t necessarily guarantee that the paper will be accepted for publication in IJAR, because we, at IJAR, believe that quality comes first.

Images and tables
Images should be supplied without being inserted in tables, borders or any other format, they can be copy pasted in the required space. It will be better if the images are given in the last page, the quality of the image and the size should be proper. Tables should be given using tables options, do not draw tables using lines, the table width should be properly given, Also do not insert any tables as image format, it should be editable. The title of the table should be bolded and should not contain any text box. Supplied images should be of required quality authors are advised not to submit inferior quality images.
All tables should be numbered in order, the word Table may be bolded. The table number should be properly given, large size tables should be split into two or more tables so that it can be accommodated within the page size. Table width and cell sizing should be even and all the content should be centered. Number of the tables should be given over the tables and without any border, shading.
Ex: Table 1: Table showing the number of villages covered under this study
Provide figures with at least 350 dpi resolution, low resolution images supplied will not be accepted. All figure number should be arranged orderly, the figures should not be supplied separately but pasted in the proper place. Figure number and title should be given below the figure, the content of the figure should be explained in the title of figure. All images supplied should have enough resolution, inferior images will be removed. Do not give the figures and tables in the last page, provide them wherever necessary in the article. Provide the figure name and number below the figure and also do not form the images in two columns.
Ex: Figure 1: Image showing the map of the study area.
Points to be noted on producing tables and figures:
Use the word “Table”, “figure” rather than using as “tab” and “fig” throughout the article. All tables should properly fit within the margin and no table should go beyond margin. It is the author’s responsibility to prepare a table that matches the margin, tables may be reduced into smaller tables that fit into margin.
All tables should have a font size of 10.5 without fail, if reduced below this point will not be readable.All figures should be of at least 300 dpi, figures below this quality will be rejected, if the image is copied from excel sheet they should be imported into graphics editing software and the quality should be enhanced. The quality of the article depends on quality on the image, author’s are informed to provided proper images, figures in the article to express the results.
Do not provide images/ figures that are not related to the article content, if any figure/ image is adopted from other article, it should be properly cited.
All tables and figures should be centred in the page, do not align on any side, all figures in the article may be of same size to the maximum extent.
Give table name as Table 1, Table 2 etc, do not give as Table 1.1 etc, the same should be done for figures provide as Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.
Author is informed to provide all necessary notations, symbols used in the article after the keywords arranged properly, general notations/ SI units need not be defined Ex.: N-Newton.
Authors may provide acknowledgement after 5th section conclusion, it should be within 50 words expressing the gratitude. If any agency/ organisation data is used in the article and permission is obtained for the same, it should be defined here.
Authors are advised to follow the above mentioned guidelines and enable us to publish the articles as quickly as possible.
Equations All equations should be numbered in order from starting and the notations used in the various equations should be given after abstract. Authors are insisted to follow standard notations and SI units system even though its not mandatory.
