Author Guidelines of Journal of Railway Transport and Technology

1. submission procedure
2. article templates
Article Template Journal of Railway Transport and Technology.
3. general guidelines
All manuscripts must be prepared in English.
4. body article
abstract and keywords
The main text format consists of a flat left-right column on A4 paper (quarto). The margin text from the left and top are 2.5cm, right and bottom are 2 cm. The manuscript is written in Microsoft Word, single space, Time New Roman 10pt, and a maximum of 12 pages, which can be downloaded at the website: http://beei.org

A title of the article should be the fewest possible words that accurately describe the content of the paper. Omit all waste words such as "A study of ...", "Investigations of ...", "Implementation of ...”, "Observations on ...", "Effect of.....", “Analysis of …”, “Design of…” etc. Indexing and abstracting services depend on the accuracy of the title, extracting from it keywords useful in cross-referencing and computer searching. An improperly titled paper may never reach the audience for which it was intended, so be specific.

The Introduction should provide a clear background, a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, the proposed approach or solution, and the new value of research which it is innovation. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines. The organization and citation of the bibliography are made in IEEE style in sign and so on. The terms in foreign languages are written italics (italic). The text should be divided into sections, each with a separate heading and numbered consecutively. The section/subsection headings should be typed on a separate line, e.g., 1. Introduction. Authors are suggested to present their articles in the section structure: Introduction-the comprehensive theoretical basis and/or the Proposed Method/Algorithm-Research Method-Results and Discussion-Conclusion.

Literature review that has been done author is used in the chapter "Introduction" to explain the difference of the manuscript with other papers, that it is innovative, it is used in the chapter "Research Method" to describe the step of research and used in the chapter "Results and Discussion" to support the analysis of the results. If the manuscript was written really has high originality, and proposed a new method or algorithm, the additional chapter after the "Introduction" chapter and before the "Research Method" chapter can be added to explain briefly the theory and/or the proposed method/algorithm.

research methods
Explaining research chronological, including research design, research procedure (in the form of algorithms, Pseudocode, or other), how to test, and data acquisition. The description of the course of research should be supported by references, so the explanation can be accepted scientifically.

result and discussion
In this section, it is explained the results of the research and at the same time is given a comprehensive discussion. Results can be presented in figures, graphs, tables, and others that make the reader understand easily. The discussion can be made in several sub-chapters.

Provide a statement that what is expected, as stated in the "Introduction" chapter can ultimately result in "Results and Discussion" chapter, so there is compatibility. Moreover, it can also be added the prospect of the development of research results and application prospects of further studies into the next (based on result and discussion).

Acknowledgments and Reference heading should be left-justified, bold, with the first letter capitalized but have no numbers. The text below continues as normal.

The main references are international journals and proceedings. All references should be to the most pertinent and up-to-date sources. References are written in IEEE style. Please use a consistent format for references

5. citation and style
Authors are strongly urged to use a reference manager such as ENDNOTEMENDELEY, or ZOTERO. References are written in IEEE style.
6. appendices
7. figures and tables
