Preparation of Manuscripts
Manuscripts should be typewritten and double spaced with margins at sides, top and bottom (refer to the latest volume of the journal). The use of word processor Microsoft Word is preferred. Manuscripts should include references and key word. Keywords (within 5 words of phrases) with heading “Key Words” should be placed between the abstract and main body of the manuscript.
Submission of Reference Papers
Two copies of unpublished or not easily available papers cited should be submitted with the manuscripts.
Title and Abbreviated Title
The title should be descriptive and concise. An abbreviated title to be used as a running head is also required.
Each manuscript should contain an abstract with heading “Abstract” following the title of the paper. The length of an abstract should not exceed 150 words. Formulas should be used as sparingly as possible. The abstract should not make references to results of formulae in the body of paper. It should be self-contained.
Name and Address of Authors
Author’s names and full addresses should be placed between the title and abstract in the manuscript’s first page.
Footnotes should be reduced to a minimum and, where possible, be replaced by remarks in the text or references. Formulae in footnotes should be avoided. Footnotes in the text should be identified by superscript numbers.
Figures and Tables
Figures, charts and diagrams should be prepared in a form a suitable for photographic reproduction. Accompanying footnotes should be typed immediately below the table.
References should be typed in the following styles :
Barlow, R. E. and Proschan, F. (1975). Statistical Theory of Reliability and Life Testing : Probability Models, Holt, Rinehart, Winston.
Lim, J. H. and Park, D. H. (1999). Expectation of Average Maintenance Cost for Imperfect Repair Model, IEEE Transactions on Reliability, 49, 90-100.
In textual material, the format ‘Proschan (1984)’ is normally preferred to ‘Proschan(1)’.
Multiple references can be distinguished as ‘Proschan (1984a)’. Abbreviation for the name of journal should not be used.
