– Instructions for Authors –

MS Word 2013 sample document with more detailed instructions for authors: SJEE Template in DOCX format, also Word 2013 dot template can be used as a starter document by saving it as DOCX or copying SJEE styles to Your document (instructions can be found on various internet pages, e.g., How to Copy Styles from One Word Document to Another).
Alternatively, authors who prefer Word 2003 can use SJEE Template in DOC format for Word 2003, or Word 2003 dot template.

Please, use MS Word 2003 od 2010-2016 for preparation of papers, but do not use MathML equations (Word equations available on Insert ribbon), for the reason of difficulties with formatting according to the journal style.
Instead, authors are ancouraged to use MathType and format equations propperly, best if import and use SJEE Equation preferences file into their Mathtype installation.

If figures are produced by using some advanced simulation software (e.g. MATLAB, FemLAB, etc.) or some graphing software, authors should send original output files or export simulation results to some vector format (e.g. MATLAB or FemLAB graphs can be exported to EPS or printed to PDF format). Please, do not just copy pictures and paste them into Word, because Word often converts them into some internal format which does not look so good in high-quality print. Embedding is always better solution than copy-paste, while converting to EPS (for vector graphics) or TIFF/PNG (for raster graphics) is the only way to avoid potential problems that might appear at some stage of preparation for printing.

And, at last, but not least, please do not send us two-column text or contet with multiple images grouped in large floating objects. All images should be inserted as INLINE, for easier preparation of the paper for publication. If authors are not sure how to apply some formatting in the simpliest possible way, it is better not to apply any formatting at all, since any complicated solutions just make preparation for printing more difficult and time consuming (e.g. putting equations and equation numbers into tables instead of using TAB characters as in the provided template). It is always better to just put figures and figure captions one after another, and we will see if it is possible to put two figures side-by-side or not (for which borderless tables are preferable, since two-column mode just break up header and footer consistency).

Papers should be submitted by E-mail to, or preferably via Open Journal System.
