Author Guidelines

Article Structure

Welcome to the author's guide for structuring your article for publication in JCMM. Before you begin writing, it's important to think about the best way to structure your article to effectively communicate your research findings. While the set structure for different types of JCMM articles is provided in this section, there are a few mandatory declarations by authors regardless of the nature of the article. These declarations include:

Declaration of Competing Interests

Corresponding authors, on behalf of all the authors of a submission, must disclose any financial and personal relationships with other people or organizations that could inappropriately influence (bias) their work. Examples of potential conflicts of interest include employment, consulting, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications and registrations, and grants or other funding. All authors, including those without competing interests to declare, should provide the relevant information to the corresponding author (which, where relevant, may specify that they have nothing to declare).

If there is no competing interest, the authors must mention the following in the manuscript:
“The authors declare that they have no known competing financial interests or personal relationships that could have appeared to influence the work reported in this paper.”

Otherwise, write the following statement and give the details:
“The authors declare the following financial interests/personal relationships which may be considered as potential competing interests:”

Funding declaration

If the presented work is funded, then please mention the following in the article:
“This work was supported by the [Name of the organization 1] [grant numbers xxxx, yyyy]; [Name of the organization 2] [grant number zzzz]; and the [Name of the organization 3] [grant number aaaa].”

If no funding has been provided for the research, it is recommended to include the following sentence:
“This research did not receive any grants from governmental, private, or nonprofit funding bodies.”

Author Contribution

For transparency, we encourage authors to submit an author statement file outlining their individual contributions to the paper using the following relevant CRediT roles:

Conceptualization; Data curation; Formal analysis; Funding acquisition; Investigation; Methodology; Project administration; Resources; Software; Supervision; Validation; Visualization; Roles/writing: original draft; writing: review and editing. Authorship statements should be formatted with the names of the authors first and the CRediT role(s) following.

Example:

Ram Singh: Conceptualization, Methodology, Software Zhang Zeng: Data curation, writing—original draft preparation. David Rothers: visualization and investigation. Riya Kumari: supervision; Abdul Rahim: software validation; Ekaterina: writing, reviewing, and editing.

Now let's take a look at the recommended structure for different types of JCMM articles:

Research Articles

Research Articles, also known as Full-length Papers are comprehensive studies that typically comprise 3000-6000 words and include a maximum of 50 references. No limits are placed on the number of figures, although authors are requested to use an appropriate number of figures.

Preparing your Full-length Paper

When preparing your Full-length Paper, please keep the following in mind:

  1. Title: The title of your Full-length Paper should be concise and accurately reflect the content of your article.

  2. Abstract: The abstract should be a brief summary of the main points of your study. It should include a statement of the problem or research question, a description of the methods used, a summary of the results, and a conclusion.

  3. Introduction: The introduction should provide background information and context for the research presented in your Full-length Paper. It should also include a clear statement of the objectives and scope of the study.

  4. Methods: The methods section should provide sufficient detail to enable the reader to understand how the study was conducted.

  5. Results: The results section should present the main findings of your study. It should be concise and focused, with a clear presentation of the data.

  6. Discussion: The discussion section should interpret the results of your study and provide a clear and concise statement of the implications of the findings.

  7. Conclusion: The conclusion should summarize the main points of your Full-length Paper and provide a clear statement of the significance of the research.

  8. References: Please provide a complete list of references cited in your Full-length Paper, following the appropriate citation style for the journal.

 

Review Articles

Review Articles are full-length papers that provide a comprehensive analysis of a high-interest field. They are intended to provide an introduction to the new reader, as well as insights for the experienced researcher. Review Articles should be between 5000-12000 words and include a minimum of 70 and maximum of 200 references. No limits are placed on the number of figures, although authors are requested to use an appropriate number of figures.

Preparing your Review Article

When preparing your Review Article, please keep the following in mind:

  1. Title: The title of your Review Article should be concise and accurately reflect the content of your article.

  2. Abstract: The abstract should be a brief summary of the main points of your review. It should include a statement of the problem or research question, a description of the methods used, a summary of the results, and a conclusion.

  3. Introduction: The introduction should provide background information and context for the field reviewed in your article. It should also include a clear statement of the objectives and scope of the review.

  4. Body: The body of the Review Article should be organized into logical sections that cover the key aspects of the field. Each section should be structured to provide a comprehensive analysis of the topic under review.

  5. Conclusion: The conclusion should summarize the main points of your Review Article and provide a clear statement of the significance of the field.

  6. References: Please provide a complete list of references cited in your Review Article, following the appropriate citation style for the journal.

 

Mini Reviews

Mini Reviews are concise and well-focused reviews of important and recent topics. They should be limited to 5,000 words, including references and figure legends. The format should be similar to that of a regular review article but with a more narrow focus. Mini Reviews should provide a brief and up-to-date overview of the current state of research in the field and highlight important findings, recent advances, and future directions.
When preparing your Mini Review, please keep the following in mind:

  1. Title: The title of your Mini Review should be concise and accurately reflect the content of your article.

  2. Abstract: The abstract should be brief and informative, providing a summary of the main points of your Mini Review.

  3. Introduction: The introduction should provide background information and context for the topic of your Mini Review. It should also include a clear statement of the objectives and scope of the review.

  4. Main body: The main body of the Mini Review should be divided into sections that cover different aspects of the topic. Each section should be organized logically and should include relevant references and figures to support your argument.

  5. Conclusion: The conclusion should summarize the main points of your Mini Review and provide a clear and concise statement of the implications of the findings.

  6. References: Please provide a complete list of references cited in your Mini Review, following the appropriate citation style for the journal.

When submitting a Mini Review, we recommend limiting the number of authors to 5. This is because Mini Reviews are typically focused on a narrow topic and require a concise and well-organized presentation of the research. Having too many authors can make it difficult to achieve this level of focus and clarity.

 

Short Communications

Short Communications are complete manuscripts that report significant research findings, but which are not of sufficient length or depth to justify a full-length paper. The total number of figures and tables should not exceed 6, and the total number of words should be no more than 3,000. Additionally, Short Communications typically have no abstract and the number of authors is limited to 3 or fewer.

Preparing your Short Communication

When preparing your Short Communication, please keep the following in mind:

  1. Title: The title of your Short Communication should be concise and accurately reflect the content of your article.

  2. Introduction: The introduction should provide background information and context for the research presented in your Short Communication. It should also include a clear statement of the objectives and scope of the study.

  3. Methods: The methods section should provide sufficient detail to enable the reader to understand how the study was conducted.

  4. Results: The results section should present the main findings of your study. It should be concise and focused, with a clear presentation of the data.

  5. Discussion: The discussion section should interpret the results of your study and provide a clear and concise statement of the implications of the findings.

  6. Conclusion: The conclusion should summarize the main points of your Short Communication and provide a clear statement of the significance of the research.

  7. References: Please provide a complete list of references cited in your Short Communication, following the appropriate citation style for the journal.
