Scope of the Journal
The Journal of Enginnerin and Fudamentals (JEF) is published 2 times a year and accepts English-language manuscripts in the all areas of enginenering and fundamental sciences of engineering. Contribution is open to researchers of all nationalities. JEF is an open access journal that publishes high-quality articles, in English. All articles published in JEF will be double blend peer-reviewed.
All manuscripts must be submitted electronically via the Internet to JEF through the online system by using JEFSYSY Submission System at http://www.jef.com. You will be guided stepwise through the creation and uploading of the various files.
There are no page charges. Papers are accepted for publication on the understanding that they have not been published and are not going to be considered for publication elsewhere. Authors should certify that neither the manuscript nor its main contents have already been published or submitted for publication in another journal. When author(s) install an article on the system, he deemed to have transferred the it’s copyright to JEF.
Manuscripts may be rejected without peer review by the editor-in-chief if they do not comply with the instructions to authors or if they are beyond the scope of the journal. After a manuscript has been accepted for publication, i.e. after referee-recommended revisions are complete, the author will not be permitted to make any changes that constitute departures from the manuscript that was accepted by the editor. Before publication, the galley proofs are always sent to the authors for corrections. Mistakes or omissions that occur due to some negligence on our part during final printing will be rectified in an errata section in a later issue. This does not include those errors left uncorrected by the author in the galley proof.
The use of someone else’s ideas or words in their original form or slightly changed without a proper citation is considered plagiarism and will not be tolerated. Even if a citation is given, if quotation marks are not placed around words taken directly from another author’s work, the author is still guilty of plagiarism. Reuse of the author’s own previously published words, with or without a citation, is regarded as self-plagiarism. All manuscripts received are submitted to iThenticateR, a plagiarism checking system, which compares the content of the manuscript with a vast database of web pages and academic publications. Manuscripts judged to be plagiarised or self-plagiarised, based on the iThenticateR report or any other source of information, will not be considered for publication.
Preparation of Manuscript
Style and format:
Manuscripts should be double-spaced with left and right 2,5 cm, top and bottom 3 cm margins on all sides of the page, in Times New Roman font (font size 12).Manuscripts should be edited by using this word template.
Manuscripts should be written in English. Contributors who are not native English speakers are strongly advised to ensure that a colleague fluent in the English language or a professional language editor has reviewed their manuscript. Concise English without jargon should be used. Repetitive use of long sentences and passive voice should be avoided. It is strongly recommended that the text be run through computer spelling and grammar programs. Either British or American spelling is acceptable but must be consistent throughout.
Symbols, units, and abbreviations:
In general, the journal follows the conventions of Scientific Style and Format, The CSE Manual for Authors, Editors, and Publishers, Council of Science Editors, Reston, VA, USA (7th ed.). If symbols such as ×, μ, η, or ν are used, they should be added using the Symbols menu of Word. Degree symbols (°) must be used from the Symbol menu, not superscripted letter o or number 0. Multiplication symbols must be used (×), not the letter x. Spaces must be inserted between numbers and units (e.g., 3 kg) and between numbers and mathematical symbols (+, –, ×, =, <, >), but not between numbers and percent symbols (e.g., 45%). Please use SI units. Generally, all numbers should be given as numerals (e.g., “In 2 previous studies…”); please consult the above-mentioned style manual for full details. All abbreviations and acronyms should be defined at first mention. Latin terms such as et al., in vitro, or in situ should not be italicised.
Articles should be divided into logically ordered and numbered sections. Principal sections should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals (1. Introduction, 2. Formulation of problem,etc.) and subsections should be numbered 1.1., 1.2., etc.
Title and contact information:
The first page should contain the full title in sentence case (e.g., Hybrid feature selection for text classification), the full names (last names fully capitalised) and affiliations of all authors (Department, Faculty, University, City, Country), and the contact e-mail address for the clearly identified corresponding author.
The abstract should provide clear information about the research and the results obtained, and should not exceed 300 words. The abstract should not contain citations.
Please provide key words or phrases to enable retrieval and indexing. Acronyms should be avoided.
Acknowledgements and/or disclaimers, if any:
Names of funding organisations should be written in full.
Citations in the text should be identified by numbers in square brackets. The list of references at the end of the paper should be given in order of their first appearance in the text. All authors should be included in reference lists unless there are 10 or more, in which case only the first 10 should be given, followed by ‘et al.’. Do not use individual sets of square brackets for citation numbers that appear together, e.g., [2,3,5–9], not , , –. Do not include personal communications, unpublished data, websites, or other unpublished materials as references, although such material may be inserted (in parentheses) in the text. In the case of publications in languages other than English, the published English title should be provided if one exists, with an annotation such as “(article in Turkish with an abstract in English)”. If the publication was not published with an English title, cite the original title only; do not provide a self-translation. References should be formatted as follows (please note the punctuation and capitalisation):
Journal titles should be abbreviated according to ISI Web of Science abbreviations.

Tables and Figures
All illustrations (photographs, drawings, graphs, etc.), not including tables, must be labelled “Figure.” Figures must be submitted in the manuscript (not as separate files). All tables and figures must have a caption and/or legend and be numbered (e.g., Table 1, Figure 2), unless there is only one table or figure, in which case it should be labelled “Table” or “Figure” with no numbering. Captions must be written in sentence case (e.g., Macroscopic appearance of the samples.). The font used in the figures should be Times New Roman. If symbols such as ×, μ, η, or ν are used, they should be added using the Symbols menu of Word.
All tables and figures must be numbered consecutively as they are referred to in the text. Please refer to tables and figures with capitalisation and unabbreviated (e.g., “As shown in Figure 2…”, and not “Fig. 2” or “figure 2”).
