Accepted File Formats

Initial submission
Your initial submission does not need to be specially formatted, as long as the study is described in a way that is suitable for editorial assessment and peer review. Please note, further formatting of all text and images will be required if your manuscript is accepted for publication – see Instructions for Camera Ready submission.
As YUJOR conducts double blinded peer-review, when uploading your manuscript you will need to upload a manuscript file with no identifying author information (designate as Main Document) and a separate title page (designate as Title Page) with author details.
Title page should contain:
- Article title.
Please avoid formulae wherever possible. Abbreviations and acronyms are not permitted.
  - All author names and affiliations, including email addresses and postal addresses.
Main document should contain:
- Article title.
Please avoid formulae wherever possible. Abbreviations and acronyms are not permitted.
  - Abstract, keywords and Mathematical Subject Classification (MSC)
  - Text (Introduction… Conclusion), acknowledgements (optional), funding, and references
Main Document and Title Page are mandatory files and should be either in PDF or Word formats. If you prepared manuscript using LaTeX, please submit compiled PDFs. Source files (in zip file) can be uploaded as a supplement (designate as Supplemental File NOT for Review).

Camera ready submission
Once the paper is accepted for publication, the authors must prepare it using either Microsoft Word template or LaTeX template, and submit it to the Editorial Office. Using the template file will substantially shorten the time to complete copy-editing and publication of accepted manuscripts.
Microsoft Word: Manuscripts prepared in Microsoft Word must be converted into a single file before submission.
LaTeX: Manuscripts prepared in LaTeX must be arranged in one ZIP folder (including all source files and PDF).
Supplementary files: May be of any format, but it is recommended that you use common, non-proprietary formats where possible.

Type and Length of Manuscripts
YUJOR accepts the following types of articles for publication (all must be original and can not have been published elsewhere):
   - Research article containing original research results that has not been published elsewhere.
   - Review that comprehensively sums up the current state of research on a particular topic.
Research articles and reviews shall have a maximum length of 20 pages (including references list and apendices). During a potential revisions stage, after peer-review, authors can extend the article length to a maximum of 26 pages to better address the reviewers and editors’ comments.

All submitted articles must be written in English. Both British and American spellings are accepted, as long as one spelling is used consistently throughout the text. Authors whose native language is not English are strongly advised to ensure the grammatical correctness of their paper prior to submission. Papers with serious deficiencies in English may be returned without review.
It is the author’s responsibility to guarantee that the English language is flawless. Therefore, all authors must have their accepted manuscripts proofread by a proficient/native English speaker before we proceed to the next stage of copy-editing.

Structure of the Manuscript
The structure should be easy to follow. Sections should be clearly defined and numbered, with headings on separate lines.
Manuscripts shall have the following elements: Title, abstract, keywords, MSC, text (introduction… conclusion), acknowledgements, funding, conflicts of interests, and references. Appendix is also allowed.

Abstract should summarize the content of the paper. It should be self-contained and understandable by the general OR reader outside the context of the article. It should be free from formulae and references, around 150 words of length.
Keywords should be provided, around six.
Mathematical Subject Classification (MSC) should be provided.
Tables and Figures should be numbered and should have titles and captions. It is the author's responsibility to obtain permission from the copyright owner to reproduce figures and tables that have been published elsewhere. Tables and figures without such evidence are assumed to originate from the author.
Reference Style. Articles shall be submitted using the IEEE reference style.

Submitting a manuscript to YUJOR, authors warrant that it is original material, has not been published elsewhere, and is not currently being considered for publication elsewhere. They also warrant that the sources of any ideas and/or words in the manuscript that are not their own have been properly attributed through appropriate citations and/or quotes, and that they have read, understood, and agree to YUJOR's Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement
