Author Guidelines

Authors should submit only papers that have been carefully proofread and polished. Manuscripts are accepted with the understanding that they are the original or extended versions of previously published papers in conferences and/or journals and that, if the work received an official sponsorship, it has been duly released for open publication. Before submission, please ensure your paper is prepared using the journal paper template. The authors must refer to the International Journal of Robotics and Control Systems Article Template for writing format and style. Use a tool such as EndNote, Mendeley, or Zotero for reference management and formatting, and choose IEEE style. This will ensure fast processing and publication. Any papers not fulfilling the requirements based on the guideline to authors will not be processed.

The minimum standard requirements of the International Journal of Robotics and Control Systems (IJRCS) must be:

  1. Written in English.
  2. The length of the submitted paper is at least 8 pages.
  3. Write the research contribution in the introduction.
  4. Use a tool such as Zotero, Mendeley, or EndNote for reference management and formatting or manual citation, and choose IEEE style.
  5. Make sure that your paper is prepared using the IJRCS paper template
  6. Expect at least 50 references, primarily with 100% to journal papers. The references must be up-to-date references (5 years back). 

Paper structure is

  1. Title
  2. Abstract
  3. Introduction
  4. Methods
  5. Result and Discussion
  6. Conclusions
  7. References

Learn about the elements that organize a typical journal article and how to compose your work to help communicate your ideas more clearly.


The article’s title should be specific, concise, and descriptive to help readers decide if they should read the full article. Use keywords and short phrases to describe the article’s content in as few words as possible. Avoid terms such as “new” or “novel” since the reader already knows your research is new and worthy of publication.


Your abstract should provide a brief summary of the research conducted. The conclusions reached and the potential implications of those conclusions.

A strong abstract will also:

  • Consist of a single paragraph of up to 250 words, with correct grammar and unambiguous terminology
  • Be self-contained, without abbreviations, footnotes, references, or mathematical equations
  • Highlight what is novel in your work
  • Include 3-5 keywords or phrases that describe the research to help readers find your article

Most authors write the abstract last and edit it multiple times before article publication to ensure it accurately captures the entire article.

We recommend not including mathematical symbols in your article title or abstract because they may not display properly.


Using the right keywords in your article can make your article more easily and reliably discoverable—which leads to a broader readership for your article.


The introduction section includes a review of the existing literature to position your research within the broader scientific field and show your work's novelty. The introduction should also describe the question you’re trying to answer with your research and why that question is important to the field.


The methods section is a straightforward description of what you did in your research and how you did it. A detailed method section will make your article reproducible by other researchers, which helps others trust and build upon your work.


Ensure your mathematical equations and formulas display correctly in your published article. The equation can be made using the insert equation feature in Ms. Word feature.

Results and Discussion

The results section describes the results you obtained in your research. Include figures and tables as appropriate to illustrate your results. Figures can show data trends or other visual information. Tables are best to use when the exact values are important.

In the discussion section, please describe your results and how they contribute to the research field.


The conclusion section can highlight potential broader implications of your work and areas that need further study. Be careful not to inflate your findings.


The reference section is important because all scientific and technical research builds upon previous work. References help give proper credit and attribution to the preceding body of work. References also support and validate your hypothesis. Be sure to only cite references that directly support your work. Inflating citations by adding unnecessary references is considered a breach of publishing ethics.


You can recognize and thank those who have helped you publish this article in the acknowledgments section. Here you can thank your funder, someone who supported you during the research project, or the anonymous reviewers who evaluated the article.  The Acknowledgements section is optional but quite common.

Article Journal Template

Carefully, please use our article journal template for the submission and review process. 


Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).

    The maximal plagiarism is 30%, with each source maximal 4%.

  2. Is your manuscript adhere to the minimum standards?

    - Written in English;

    - The length of the submitted paper is at least 6 pages and no limit pages;

    - Use a tool such as EndNote, Mendeley, or Zotero for reference management and formatting, and choose IEEE style.

  3. Is your manuscript written in IJRCS article format? At this stage, it is essential that you follow every detail of the IJRCS format. Please try to follow the format as closely as possible.
  4. Is your title adequate and is your abstract correctly written? The title of the paper is a maximum of 15 words, without Acronym or abbreviation. The Abstract (Max 300 words) should be informative and completely self-explanatory (no citation in the abstract), provide a clear statement of the problem, the proposed approach or solution, and point out major findings and conclusions.
  5. Authors are suggested to present their articles in the structure of the sections: Introduction – Method - Results and Discussion – Conclusion. Authors may present complex proofs of theorems or non-obvious proofs of correctness of algorithms after the introduction section (obvious theorems & straightforward proofs of existing theorems are NOT needed).
  6. Introduction section: The authors must provide the research contribution in the section.

    The references that are being used should be at least 50 references from a journal in the last 5 years. The author can add the references to 50 after the review process in the revision article.

  7. Language. If an article is poorly written due to grammatical errors, while it may make it more difficult to understand the science, therefore authors must proofread their article(s) before being submitted.
