An abstract should summarize the authors' main contributions of the paper not the subjective assessment of the writer(s). It should
contain only what you are specifically reporting in the manuscript. And please note that the material in the abstract should not be
repeated later word for word in the paper. When you write Abstract, you may refer to the list as follows:
a) What the problem to be resolved? Or what is the author's focus in this paper?
b) How do you solve the problem? Or what is the method or process to solve the problem?
c) What results do you achieved and what conclusions are drawn from the study of the problem?
d) What is new and original in this paper? How do you evaluate your results compared with existing achievements in limited words?
e) Note that to eliminate or minimize background information in abstract.
f) Limit the abstract within 150 words.
e) The descriptions referring to the research background are not suggested in the abstract.
And please check that the style of writing is in the third person throughout, especially in the abstract.
HELPFUL TIPS FOR WRITHING HIGH QUALITY KEYWORDS FOR GETTING PUBLISHED IN
Keywords are a list of the major topics embodied in your article. Be as specific as possible in describing the concepts or ideas in
the article. According to the statistic of IEEE, most IEEE articles are well indexed if they use 5 to 8 indexing keywords. So, please
check that the keywords are appropriate for information retrieval purposes, at least 4 keywords.
When you select the keywords for your article, it is recommended to refer to the IEEE keywords list and the keywords listed in the
high-quality papers of your research area. You can download the IEEE keywords list from the IJAET website at Download Section.
As new technologies evolve, when there are no appropriate IEEE keywords the author is encouraged to create keywords.
In general, it is inappropriate simply to write as you would speak in academic writing. In conversation, the listener can ask for
clarification or elaboration easily, and thus the speaker can use imprecise language, ramble from topic to topic freely, and so on.
Instead, academic writing must stand on its own, conveying the author's ideas clearly through words alone. As a result, academic
writing requires substantial effort to construct formal language relevant to a well-defined topic. The best academic writing will be
difficult to write but very easy to read.
Rules for academic writing are quite strict, though often unstated. Academic writing is used in scientific papers or reports whenever
you want to convey your ideas to readers, with many possible backgrounds and assumptions. Unlike casual conversation or emails
to friends, academic writing needs to be clear, unambiguous, literal, and well structured.
The checklist below will help you revise and polish drafts of academic papers. After checking your draft against these points, ask a
colleague to help you in areas that need work or that you do not understand.
1. Is your contributions original or reasonably interesting?
2. Is your contributions (main ideas) clearly stated in the abstract?
3. Have you included enough evidence or proof carefully and explained how it proves your point?
4. Is your paper logical? Is there any contradiction in your paper?
5. If appropriate have you given enough references?
6. Is your sentence style straightforward and concise? (No wordiness)
