Notes for Authors of Technical Papers

Submission of Papers

1. Papers can be submitted to the Filtration journal in Word format via e-mail to the editor. Please include author(s) names and a correspondence address. Papers from industry and universities are equally welcome.
2. Papers must be in English and are normally up to 2500 words, but can be longer if necessary. The inclusion of appropriate, good quality, figures and tables is encouraged (and preferred).
3. There is no fixed format for a paper, but authors are asked to note the following:
• Include an Abstract (up to 200 words) toward the start of the paper which gives a brief account of the most relevant aspects.
• Provide a Conclusions section toward the end of the paper.
• Any mathematical expressions should be typed and checked carefully for accuracy. Where several equations appear, a list of symbols used should be inserted at the end of the paper (before any References). SI units should always be used.

They should give in order: Author’s surnames and initials, Year, Title of paper/chapter, Title of book or journal, Volume, Issue, Page number, followed by the name and town of the publisher in the case of a book.
