General information

The journal Ingeniería y Universidad: Engineering for Development is edited and published every six months by the School of Engineering at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana. Ingeniería y Universidad: Engineering for Development aims to promote and disclose novel and relevant research work in the field of engineering.

The journal is aimed at engineering students, professional engineers, researchers, and more broadly, anyone interested in scientific and technological developments in engineering. The journal publishes only manuscripts in the English language.

Topics of interest

Ingeniería y Universidad: Engineering for Development publishes scientific contributions and technological developments in the different areas of Engineering. The journal especially welcomes articles on topics related to robotics and industrial automation, bio-engineering, environmental engineering, industrial engineering and transportation engineering, and logistics.

Types of contributions

Original articles are particularly welcome, but also review articles and commentaries are considered.

Submission process

Contributions must be submitted through the Open Journal System (OJS) platform: http://revistas.javeriana.edu.co/index.php/IyU/index. To submit manuscripts authors must first register. During the submission process, authors will be required to provide suitable independent reviewers to speed up the process. Authors must send manuscripts following the journal’s structure, format, and reference system.

Minimum formatting requirements (See template)
All contributions must comply with the following specifications:

• Articles must be submitted in electronic format using a text editor, preferably MS Word.

• Articles should be written in Times New Roman, size 12, single-spaced. A maximum of 5400 words including references is acceptable.

• Articles should have a single column with justified text. 

All graphs, figures, and illustrations should be located in the article, indicating titles and source and in a low resolution.

In addition, all graphs, figures, and illustrations must be submitted as separate files using a high-quality format.

Suggested content for the articles (See template)

Structure of the articles (applies mainly to original research articles)

Title
Abstract
Keywords at least 3.
Introduction
Materials and Methods
Results
Conclusions
References

Abstract (See template)
The abstract must not exceed 200 words. It should be concrete and include the main results of the contribution. (See suggestion for abstract)

Writing style

The writing must be straightforward and technical. The International Unit system should be employed. All abbreviations and acronyms must be explained the first time they appear in the text. Equations and other numerical expressions must be numbered in sequence.

In the body of the article, the references must be cited according to the IEEE citation style (See manual).

Following the quoted sentence a sequential numbering within brackets after space, in the same line of text
and before any punctuation is used. Each number corresponds to a reference containing information from the cited source. Each work cited should be separated by a semicolon (;). For example:

         As affirmed by Bettan [1]; Bettan and Hassan [4]-[9]; and Barrera [12], the wear of the material is due to the silica content in the raw material.

The numbers in brackets may also be used as nouns:

         As shown in [1], [4] - [9] and [12], the wear of the material is due to the silica content in the raw material.

It is necessary to use et al. if three or four authors are mentioned:

         According to Wong et al. [3], [10], wavelet packet division multiplexing (WPDM) using discrete wavelet packet decomposition...

References

In this section all references should be included, they must be correctly cited in the text. For the citation of bibliographical references according to the IEEE citation style (See manual).

The reference list should be presented in the order in which the sources are cited, i.e., in numerical order, not in alphabetical order by the first author. At the start of each new source, an identifier number in brackets (the same used in the text) is used.

The list of references should provide the necessary information to identify and to recover the sources used.

 It is essential that every one of the quotes that have been inserted in the text has its corresponding reference in the final list, and conversely, any entry in the list of references should be cited within the text.

 First and middle names should be abbreviated by putting only initials.

It is mandatory to reference the names and initials of all authors of a work. However, if the work has more than six (6) authors, the first author followed by expression et al. (in italics) will be referenced.

For anonymous works, the first element of the reference will be the title.

If the author is an organization, the name should be indicated as it appears in the source.

References should keep the original language of the publication.

To indicate the page range use “pp.” (pp. 111-122); to indicate a single page use “p.” (p. 111).
