Manuscript Submission

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities – tacitly or explicitly – at the institute where the work has been carried out. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation. However, we accept submissions that have previously been presented at conferences; or have previously appeared in other “non-journal” venues (for example blogs or posters). Authors are responsible for updating the archived preprint with the journal reference (including DOI) and a link to the published articles on the appropriate journal website upon publication.


Types of Publications

Manuscripts submitted to IJMVT should neither be published previously nor be under consideration for publication in another journal. The main publications types are as follows:

Articles: Original research manuscripts. The journal considers all original research manuscripts provided that the work reports scientifically sound experiments and provides a substantial amount of new information.

Reviews: These provide concise and precise updates on the latest progress made in a given area of research.

Field Reports: The purpose of a field report is to describe the observation of people, places, and/or events and to analyze that observation data in order to identify and categorize common themes in relation to the research problem underpinning the study.



Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere must obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format and include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.

Copyrights for articles are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. Authors have rights to reuse, republish, archive, and distribute their own articles after publication with reference to the previously published work in the journal. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. Authors shall permit the publisher to apply a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) to their articles and to archive them in databases and indexes.

The publisher and journals have a zero-tolerance plagiarism policy. We check the issue using various plagiarism prevention tools (Hamanandjoo, Samim, iThenticate, Turnitin, etc) and a reviewer check. All submissions will be checked by plagiarism prevention tools before being sent to reviewers. Thus, all authors that submit their manuscripts to IJMVT must check that their academic work respects the copyrights of other scholars and avoids any plagiarism.


Privacy Statement

The names and E-mail addresses entered in this journal’s site or used in communications will be used exclusively for the purposes of this journal and will not be made available for any other purpose or to any other party.

Online Submission

Manuscripts should be prepared in Microsoft Word and submitted online. Please follow the hyperlink “Submit Manuscript” on the top and upload your manuscript files following the instructions given on the screen. The editors reserve the right to edit or otherwise alter all contributions, but authors will receive proofs for approval before publication.


Cover Letter

All manuscripts must be accompanied by a formal statement that explicitly confirms the following:

-  The work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis) and it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

-  That all coauthors acknowledge their participation in conducting the research leading to the manuscript, that all agree to its submission to be considered for publication by IJMVT, and that all have agreed on the final version.

-  The manuscript is approved tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out.


Potential Reviewers

Authors may suggest up to four potential reviewers with their affiliation and e-mail addresses, with the understanding that they may or may not be asked to review the manuscript. Include a reason for suggesting the reviewer. Potential reviewers should be experts in the topic of your study. They should not have a conflict of interest, so do not suggest your advisor if you are a student or close collaborator.


Paper Selection and Revision Process
 Upon receiving the paper, the system will send an acknowledgment to the corresponding author immediately.
 After submission, a pre-check is initially carried out by the managing editor to assess:

-  Suitability of the manuscript to the journal/special issue;

-  Qualification and background of authors;

-  Similarity of the text to identify possible instances of inappropriate citation or copying to avoid plagiarism.

-   Reject obviously poor manuscripts.

In the case of a conflict of interest, the Editor-in-Chief will be notified of the submission and invited to check and recommend reviewers.

 The process of peer review may take 4-10 weeks. At least two review reports are collected for each submission. You will be able to trace the process in your user account.
 We will send an acceptance E-mail to the corresponding author, indicating acceptance or not, as well as the date of publication.
 Authors need to re-edit the paper, using the template. The re-edited paper should use the template provided by us and meet the formatting requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines (http://author.......). Major corrections cannot be undertaken by either the editor or the publishers; if your paper is not prepared in accordance with these instructions it may not be considered further. Where requested to do so in the course of the peer review process, authors must revise their papers within one month of the request; otherwise, the contribution will be considered withdrawn.
 Once you submit the re-edited paper, the system will send you a confirmation E-mail.
 After publishing, the authors may download the e-journal from the website.

Subdivision of the article

Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1., 2., (then 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2; 1.2, etc.) (the abstract, acknowledgment, references, and appendix are excluded from the section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text.' Authors are urged to write as concisely as possible, but not at the expense of clarity.

Title of subdivision

Heading Level-1: Times New Roman; Size-12; Bold; for example,

1. Introduction

Heading Level-2: Times New Roman; Size-12; Italic; for example, 1.1 Research Methods

Heading Level-3: Times New Roman; Size-12; Normal; for example, 1.1.1 Analysis of Results


Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place descriptions of tables below the table body. Avoid vertical rules. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables does not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.

The tables should be:

-       Integrated into the submitted document.

-       Captioned above the table.

-       Should NOT be submitted as an image, but as MS Word Table.

-       Subtitled with all units of measurement (metric units).

-       Borders setting: all; width: 1/2 pt.

-       Cited in the text e.g. Table 1.

Figures, Photos, Illustrations

-       Of reproducible quality and attached in TIF format or in JPG format. They should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.

-       Integrated as well into the submitted document at the appropriate place.

-       Accompanied by a clear legend or key, if necessary.

-       Presented with metric units.

-       Captioned below the figures.

-       Cited in the text as e.g. Figure 1.

Formulae and Equations

The text size of formulae and equations should be the same as normal text size and should be editable by the editorial office and not appear in a picture format.


Footnotes can be used to give additional information, which may include the citation of a reference included in the reference list. They should not consist solely of a reference citation, and they should never include the bibliographic details of a reference. They should also not contain any figures or tables.
