is published quarterly. It contains original papers and review articles that
fit within the scope of the journal.
Prospective authors are
invited to submit manuscripts written in correct English, complete in their
descriptions and not currently under consideration by another journal. Papers
that have appeared previously in conference proceedings should be submitted
with respective notification.
All submitted manuscripts
will be peer-refereed, and may undergo modifications to attain the quality expected
in an international scientific journal. They will be published within three
months after acceptance by the Editors. Papers requiring major revision
will be rejected.
Manuscripts should be submitted
to one of the Editors as electronic files on 3.5" floppy disks, which must be
clearly marked with operating system, disk format (e.g. DS/DD), word processor
used, including version number, and short title of article. Two printed copies
of the manuscript should be also submitted with the disk. In the event of differences
between disk and hard-copy, the later will be considered as the definitive version.
When using a word processor
to prepare a manuscript the following should be noted:
- There is no need to use
formatting commands such as centring, justifying, indenting etc., because
page design will be handled by the Publisher.
- The word processor's
facilities must be used to indicate the text attributes: bold, italic, subscript,
- The hyphenation facilities
of the word processor must not be used.
- When preparing tables,
tabs not spaces must be used to align columns.
- When using symbols to
denote special characters, a list of all codes used must be supplied.
Manuscripts usually consist
of seven parts: (i) title; (ii) full names and institutional affiliations of
all authors as well as corresponding author’s address, including phone, fax
and e-mail; (iii) abstract; (iv) introduction; (v) body; (vi) conclusions; (vii)
references. A list of symbols and some appendices may be additionally recommended
in certain cases.
- The title should
clearly and briefly cover the subject of the paper.
- An abstract (of
about 200 words) should be self-explanatory and summarize the essential qualities
of the paper.
- The introduction should
spell out the problem, shortly review previous works and state the purpose
of the paper.
- The body, which
gives the primary message of the paper in detail, may be divided into several
sections. The contributions made by the author(s) should be clearly stated.
- The conclusions
should point out the result of the paper and its significance, emphasizing
limitations and advantages as well as recommendations for possible further
- References should
be numbered consecutively in order of the citation in the text and listed
at the end of the text as follows:

for synchronous reluctance motor. IEEE Trans. Ind. Applic., 30

- Formulae must
be clearly written, each on its own line, well separated from the text. Their
consecutive numbers should be marked between round parentheses.
- Appendices must
be typed on separate sheets and should be labelled with capital letters A,
B, C, etc.
- Footnotes should
be avoided, their contents being integrated into the text.
- For symbols, units
and graphical signs, the recommendations of IEC and ISO should be followed.
(drawings and glossy photographs) should be progressively numbered and produced
in any of the popular drawing programs for the Macintosh and PC. Artwork should
be drawn for finished using a Times or Helvetica typeface at a final size
of 9 pt type with appropriate lineweights. Scanned artwork should be saved
to Tiff format for both line and half-tone, and scanned at a suggested
setting of 400 dpi for half-tones and 1000 dpi for linework. If it is necessary
to compress the scans, please indicate the software used. It is essential
that a hard-copy print of the scans be included. Illustrations should be logically
named and saved as individual files to 3.5" disks.
