Instruction for Authors

1. Instruction for submission 

- Authors are required to use the template prepared in Microsoft Word format for the International Journal of Precision Engineering and Manufacturing-Green Technology in writing manuscripts, and to submit the complete manuscript to
- Style: Manuscript should be submitted in English, and the presentation as well as the grammar should be clear and comprehensive. Manuscripts that are commercial in nature will not be considered. SI units should be used unless to do so is not feasible or would result in a serious loss of clarity.
- Title page listing the paper title, the name(s) of the author(s), and the affiliation of each author. The corresponding author should be identified by #. His/her e-mail, tel., fax number should be listed in the footnote.
- Abstract (200 words maximum) should be a summary of the paper and not an introduction. Because the abstract may be used in abstracting journals, it should be self-contained (i.e., no numerical references) and substantive in nature, presenting concisely the objectives, methodology used, results obtained, and their significance.
- Subject terms or keywords are required, maximum of six in alphabetical order.
- Text should be spaced and typed in accordance with the provided template.
- Equations should be typed. Define characters that might be confused (such as ell/one, nu/vee, or omega/w) at first usage.
- References to published literature must be numbered consecutively in the order of their citation in the text. The number should be written as an upper script. Private communications or unpublished reports should be treated as references. Use the following formats for books or journal articles:
  • Books: Author(s) (list last name, then first and middle initials), book title, publisher, city, and year published. When citing a paper chapter in a book, list the chapter in quotes, and the book, plus the page numbers. Example: Hall, J.A., “Robust Regression and Outlier Detection,” John Wiley & Sons, pp.134-150, 1987.
  • Journals: Author(s) (list last name, then first and middle initials), paper title in quote, journal name (abbreviate only well-known journals), volume number, issue number, inclusive page numbers, and year published. Example: Bluzer, N. and Jensen, A. S., “Current Readout of Infrared Detectors,” Opt. Eng., Vol.26, No.3, pp.241-248, 1987.
- Footnotes: Use textual footnotes only when necessary to present important documentary or explanatory material whose inclusion in the text would be distracting.
- Figures should be prepared for maximum contrast and care is required to avoid aliasing when printed out. They should be inserted at upper and/or lower positions in the main text. No coloring and unnecessary shading are permitted in figures.

2. Publication charges 

- A certain amount of fee per publication will be required. These charges are financial contributions from authors’ institution to help defray the cost of publishing research results.
- Papers submitted from outside of Korea, i.e. written by foreign corresponding author, are exempted from the publication charges temporarily.
  • Publication fees:
    1. KRW 360,000 for each paper and KRW 100,000 per additional page (over six pages for regular paper, short communication and over eight pages for review paper) will be charged.
    2. Again, papers submitted from outside of Korea will be exempted from the publication charges temporarily, but USD 50 per additional page (over six pages for regular paper, short communication and over eight pages for review paper) will be charged.
    3. Publication fees will be charged upon acceptance of paper by editorial board, and authors are asked to complete the payment within 15 days after request.

English Language Editing 

For editors and reviewers to accurately assess the work presented in your manuscript you need to ensure the English language is of sufficient quality to be understood. If you need help with writing in English you should consider:
  • Asking a colleague who is a native English speaker to review your manuscript for clarity.
  • Visiting the English language tutorial which covers the common mistakes when writing in English.
  • Using a professional language editing service where editors will improve the English to ensure that your meaning is clear and identify problems that require your review. Two such services are provided by our affiliates Nature Research Editing Service and American Journal Experts. Springer authors are entitled to a 10% discount on their first submission to either of these services, simply follow the links below.
Please note that the use of a language editing service is not a requirement for publication in this journal and does not imply or guarantee that the article will be selected for peer review or accepted.
If your manuscript is accepted it will be checked by our copyeditors for spelling and formal style before publication.

Research Data Policy 

A submission to the journal implies that materials described in the manuscript, including all relevant raw data, will be freely available to any researcher wishing to use them for non-commercial purposes, without breaching participant confidentiality.
The journal strongly encourages that all datasets on which the conclusions of the paper rely should be available to readers. We encourage authors to ensure that their datasets are either deposited in publicly available repositories (where available and appropriate) or presented in the main manuscript or additional supporting files whenever possible. Please see Springer Nature’s information on recommended repositories.
General repositories - for all types of research data - such as figshare and Dryad may be used where appropriate.
Datasets that are assigned digital object identifiers (DOIs) by a data repository may be cited in the reference list. Data citations should include the minimum information recommended by DataCite: authors, title, publisher (repository name), identifier.
Where a widely established research community expectation for data archiving in public repositories exists, submission to a community-endorsed, public repository is mandatory. Persistent identifiers (such as DOIs and accession numbers) for relevant datasets must be provided in the paper.

Data availability

The journal encourages authors to provide a statement of Data availability in their article. Data availability statements should include information on where data supporting the results reported in the article can be found, including, where applicable, hyperlinks to publicly archived datasets analysed or generated during the study. Data availability statements can also indicate whether data are available on request from the authors and where no data are available, if appropriate.
Data Availability statements can take one of the following forms (or a combination of more than one if required for multiple datasets):
1. The datasets generated during and/or analysed during the current study are available in the [NAME] repository, [PERSISTENT WEB LINK TO DATASETS]
2. The datasets generated during and/or analysed during the current study are not publicly available due [REASON WHY DATA ARE NOT PUBLIC] but are available from the corresponding author on reasonable request.
3. The datasets generated during and/or analysed during the current study are available from the corresponding author on reasonable request.
4.Data sharing not applicable to this article as no datasets were generated or analysed during the current study
5. All data generated or analysed during this study are included in this published article [and its supplementary information files].
More examples of template data availability statements, which include examples of openly available and restricted access datasets, are available:
Springer Nature provides a research data policy support service for authors and editors, which can be contacted at researchdata@springernature.com.
This service provides advice on research data policy compliance and on finding research data repositories. It is independent of journal, book and conference proceedings editorial offices and does not advise on specific manuscripts.
