Manuscript Structure


STANDARD PAPERS. Original articles should not exceed 7000 words inclusive of all parts of the paper apart from online Supporting Information. Typescripts should be arranged as follows, with each section starting on a separate page.


Title Page


    A concise and informative title.

    A list of author names, affiliation(s), and e-mail addresses.

    The name, complete mailing address (including e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers) of the corresponding author.

    A running title not exceeding 45 characters.

    A word count of the entire paper broken down into summary, main text, acknowledgements, references, tables and figure legends.

    The number of tables and figures.

    The number of references.


Abstract. The abstract should outline the purpose of the paper and the main results, conclusions and recommendations, using clear, factual, numbered statements. Authors should follow a formula in which point 1 sets the context and need for the work; point 2 indicates the approach and methods used; the next 2-3 points outline the main results; and the last point identifies the wider implications and relevance of renewable energy.  The whole abstract should be readily understandable to all the Journal's readers and must not exceed 350 words.


Keywords. A list in alphabetical order not exceeding ten words or short phrases, excluding words used in the title and chosen carefully to reflect the precise content of the paper.


Introduction. State the reason for the work, the context, background, aims and the hypotheses being tested.


Materials and methods. Include sufficient details for the work to be repeated. Where specific equipment and materials are named, the manufacturer’s details (name, city and country) should be given so that readers can trace specifications by contacting the manufacturer. Where commercially available software has been used, details of the supplier should be given in brackets or the reference given in full in the reference list.


Results. State the results of experimental or modelling work, drawing attention to important details in tables and figures.


Discussion. Point out the importance of the results and place them in the context of previous studies and in relation to the application of the work.


Acknowledgements. Be brief. If authors refer to themselves as recipients of assistance or funding, they should do so by their initials separated by points (e.g. W.T.). Do not acknowledge Editors by name.


References (see Manuscript Specifications below).


Tables (see Specifications). Each table should be on a separate page, numbered and accompanied by a legend at the top. These should be referred to in the text as Table 1, etc. Avoid duplication between figures and tables.


Figures (see Specifications). Figures and their legends should be grouped together at the end of the paper before Supporting Information (if present). If figures have been supplied as a list at the end of the text file (as recommended), they should appear above their respective legend. Figures should be referred to in the text as Fig. 1, Figs 1 & 2, etc. Photographic material should also be referred to as Figures. Do not include high-resolution versions of figures at submission; reduce the size and resolution of graphics to a file size of less than 1 MB. If a manuscript is accepted, higher quality versions of figures can be submitted at a later stage.


CITATIONS AND REFERENCES. Citation in this journal use IEEE style format  (https://libraryguides.vu.edu.au/ieeereferencing/gettingstarted). In the IEEE referencing style, a number [X] is inserted at the point in your writing where you cite another author's work. At the end of your work, the full reference [X] of the work is provided. Citations and their corresponding references are provided in the order they appear throughout your writing.    


Citing sources in the text

IEEE in-text citations consist of numbers provided in square brackets, which correspond to the appropriate sources in the reference list at the end of the paper.


The in-text citations numbers start at [1] and continue in ascending order throughout the paper – unless you are referring to a source you have already cited in your text, in which case you can use the previously assigned number. 


Each in-text citation number should be enclosed by square brackets and appear on the text line, inside sentence punctuation, with a space before the bracket, e.g.


 Thevenin’s and Norton’s theorems are widely used for circuit analysis simplification [13].

Citations of references may be given simply as “in [1]...”, rather than as “in reference [1] ...”.

Furthermore, citations may be grammatically treated either as if they were:

    footnote numbers, e.g.

As shown by Jones [4] …

For more details, see [1], [3], [7].

as mentioned earlier [3], [4]­–[6], [8] …

Taylor et al. [5] have noted …

    or nouns:

As seen in [2] …

According to [4] and [6]–[8] …

In contrast to [5, p. 7], it is evident that…

As demonstrated in [4] …

When authors are mentioned, they may be treated in the following way:

Rickard [5] has shown …

Jones [6], and Zheng and Rogers [7] have stated …

Azzarello et al. [3] stated that they were unable to determine why …

If there are more than three authors, provide et al. (meaning ‘and others’) after the first author in the text of the paper. Note that et al. is not italicised in the in-text citations. In the reference list, however, list all the authors for up to six authors– use et al. only if the names are not given. Also use et al. in the reference list for more than 6 authors, e.g.:


[8]    J. D. Bellamy et al., Computer Telephony Integration, New York: Wiley, 2010.


Do not mention authors of a source or provide date of publication within the text (e.g. “in Jones [1]” should be changed to “in [1]”) except in such cases where the author’s name is integral to the understanding of the sentence (e.g. “Jones [1] proposed a new approach for sensor and actuator selection problems).


The Reference List

A numbered list of references must be provided at the end of the paper. The reference list contains full details of all sources cited in-text. Reference list entries should appear in the order the sources are cited in the text of the paper, beginning with [1], and continuing in the ascending numerical order, from the lowest number to the highest. Reference list entries do not follow an alphabetical order by author or title of sources.


Refer to the information on the Sample Reference List tab of this guide.

Editing the in-text citation numbers may require renumbering the whole reference list. Please check that the in-text citation numbers match the reference list numbers.

References should be cited as 'in press' only if the paper has been accepted for publication. Work not yet submitted for publication or under review should be cited as 'unpublished data', with the author's initials and surname given; such work should not be included in the Reference section. Any paper cited as 'in press' or under review elsewhere must be uploaded as part of the manuscript submission as a file 'not for review' so that it can be seen by the editors and, if necessary, made available to the referees.


REVIEWS. Reviews should not exceed 8000 words inclusive of all parts of the paper. The layout should follow the same format and specifications as for Standard Papers except that the organisation of the main text need not follow the division into Introduction, Materials and methods, Results and Discussion.


Communication ARTICLES.Communication articles should be short contributions up to 4000 words inclusive of all parts of the paper. Format and specifications are as for Standard Papers except that any Summary section should be short (no more than 150 words) and the layout of the main text can be flexible.
