2    Types of Paper 

2.1 News and Updates

News and Updates articles are written to update the research community on an upcoming event or reports on a recent event of utmost importance. Items should be short and no longer than 200 words absent of any figures and tables with no more than 5 references. The full name for correspondence is included.

2.2 Letters

These items are short comments on current issues of interest that warrants immediate response from the scientific and engineering community. Items should be short and no longer than 500 words absent of any figures and tables with no more than 5 references. Authors are limited to two per letters as it is a concise and precise communication.

2.3 Research Articles

Research Articles presents original research that is expected to present a major advancement and contribution to the body of knowledge or the particular area. Research Articles follows the format provided in the guide to authors. The content includes an abstract, an introduction, materials and methods, results and discussion and conclusion. The supplementary materials that support the paper's conclusions are welcomed.

2.4 Reviews

Review articles summarise and describe new developments of interdisciplinary significance as well as proposing new future research directions based on their reviews. Reviews contain an abstract, an introduction that outlines the main theme, subheadings, and the future direction for resolving research questions.

2.5 Methods and Protocols

Methods and Protocols are the proposal of new or an overviews of recent technical and methodological developments. Articles should present a new experimental, engineering, scientific or computational method, test or procedure. The method described may either be completely new, or may offer a better version of an existing method. Methods must be proven by its validation, its application to an important research question and result illustrating its performance in comparison to existing approaches. Articles should possess thorough assessments of methodological performance and comprehensive technical descriptions that facilitate immediate application by researchers in the field.

2.6 Software, Database and Datasets

Software articles should describe a computational tool, novel software or new algorithm implementations, web servers, and web services that would be a useful addition that represents a significant advance over previously published software (usually demonstrated by direct comparison with available related software). Database articles should describe a novel database that is readily accessible and data within the database should be attributed to a valid source.
