Guide for Authors
You can check the detailed guidelines for getting more information.
The following order should be met: title page, abstract, introduction, materials and methods, results and discussion, conclusion, acknowledgments, and references. Besides that, manuscripts in technological fields often follow different rules but must be logical.
Title page: Important details should be included, i.e., the title, name(s) of authors, their institutional affiliations and addresses, city and country (zip codes), email address of the corresponding author.
Abstract: The abstract is a brief version of the paper to tell readers the aim, methods, procedures, results, discussion, and conclusion. It is also important to note that a good abstract may attract readers. An abstract should not exceed 250 words.
Keywords: You should include three to five keywords describing the paper separated by a comma.
Introduction: The introduction should clearly present the underlying theory and hypothesis. Besides that, it also needs to provide a review of the state-of-the-art literature in the research field through a comprehensive review can be found in the discussion section.
Materials and Methods: This section presents briefly the methodology/procedures utilized so those who are willing to develop the trial can do the same and produce comparable results. In order to get rid of ambiguities regarding the design, measurements, analysis, etc., the author should provide enough details. Already employed methods in other works should not be included but given in the reference section instead. However, you should modify and develop the known methodology by further explanation.
Results and discussion: The observations with a brief explanation are included in this section. Results should be presented in tables and/or figures together with clearly explained text below. You should not repeat the information presented in tables, or vice versa. In addition, standard deviations/errors should also be presented.
Formulas, illustrations and figures: You should type mathematical symbols and formula clearly, and equations must be numbered orderly on the right-hand side. All papers submitted to BDUJST are printed in black. Therefore, you should submit a high-quality colored paper if you wish BDUJST to print your paper in color.
References: You should number your references according to the order you cite they in the paper in “Reference” section. An English translation should be provided for any references written in other languages. If a published paper is referred, you should include its authors’ names, the title of the paper, the (or abbreviated) journal name, the volume in boldface, the issue number, the year of publication, and the first-last pages number or the article number. Meanwhile, if a book is referred, the names of all the authors, the title, the name of the publisher, the place of the publisher and the year of publication must be added. The names of all the authors, the name of the conference/workshop, the name of the publisher, the year of publication and the first-last pages number should be included if a work in any conference/workshop proceedings is referred. If a preprint is referred, it must include the names of all the authors, the source of the preprint, and the year of publication.
