Submission of a manuscript to JEST should make assurance that it has not been copyrighted , published or accepted for publication elsewhere, that it is not currently being considered for publication elsewhere, and that it will not be submitted elsewhere while under consideration. All manuscripts should be prepared following the “Manuscript Submission Guidelines” below. Do not send manuscripts in your own style to the editors. Prospective authors are urged to read this and follow its recommendations on the organization of their manuscript.

Manuscript Submission Guidelines

Submission: Full manuscript, Registration Form and Copyright Form should be submitted by e-mail to or online from Registration Form and Copyright Form can be downloaded from Authors should allow approximately 8 weeks for the initial review cycle and double blind peer review procedures. Submissions to JEST are automatically screened using iThenticate's CrossCheck within the editorial system to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. When a plagiarism complaint is raised, we recommend following the actions here. High similarity papers will be desk rejected.

Submission format: The acceptable manuscripts should be prepared in MS Word using the JEST template. The format of the template is in single-column with figures and tables included within the text. Texts use a 10-point font spaced 14 pounds. The complete template is available at: Note that computer notation, powers of ten, special macros created by authors, etc. (e.g., x**2, 1.E-10), is not acceptable. The style for equations, references, abbreviations, figure captions, etc., should exactly match the standard JEST format.

Manuscript length: We encourage authors to prepare their manuscript with no less than 8 pages in JEST style. There is no maximum manuscript length constraint. And there is also no restriction on the number of figures, or amount of supporting information. But at the same time we also suggest authors to present and discuss their research results consciously.

Full manuscript: A complete manuscript must include title; names of authors and their complete contact information; abstract; text; all images, figures and tables; references; and brief introduction to all authors. Every manuscript must (a) provide a clearly defined statement of the problem being addressed, (b) state why it is important to solve the problem, and (c) give author's original and significant contributions to the problem.

Title and abstract: The first page of the manuscript shall contain the paper title, full names of authors (surname in capital followed by given names) and contact information for all authors (full mailing address: institutional affiliations, city, zip code, country), the abstract, and the keywords. An abstract should have not more than 120 words and cover four points: statement of problem, assumptions and methods of solutions, results and conclusion or discussion of the importance of the results. Indexing keywords are mandatory and must be included with all manuscripts published in the JEST. Please choose approximately 4 to 8 keywords which describe the major points or topics covered in your article. These will make the paper, by itself, a useful tool for information retrieval.

Figures and tables: Each figure and table should have a caption to concisely and intelligibly illustrates the contents of it. Figures/tables may be worked into the text or placed at the end of the manuscript. To conserve space in the publication, most figures/tables are reduced to single-column width if possible. This may result in as much as a 4:1 reduction from the original. Therefore, figures/tables should be kept to a minimum in original and be easily viewed on published pages. In the finalized sizes of figures/tables, authors are advised to make sure that:

All images/photographs should be black-and-white; color is not advised.

Figure captions are in 9-point font and texts in figures in 8-point font.

Lines in the figures are in 0.75 pounds and arrows in the minimum.

Trigram tables are suggested, the first and the 3rd lines are both in 1.5 pounds and the 2nd line is in 0.75 pounds.

Table captions and texts in tables are both in 9-point font and table captions are in black.

Abbreviations: This Journal follows the widely used standards on units and abbreviations. It is required to use abbreviations after their full texts are given in the first.

Mathematics: All mathematical expressions must be legible. It is advised to edit mathematical expressions by the MathType5.0. Do not give derivations that are easily found in the literature; merely cite the reference.

References: All references should be archived material such as journal articles, books, and conference proceedings. Web pages should not be referenced, since their content and accessibility may change over time. Personal communications and unpublished data are not acceptable references. The references published in Chinese must be translated into English and noted by “(in Chinese)”. References require a complete author list, a complete title, and first and last pages cited for each entry. The standard reference format and examples are given below.
