Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering).

Paper title: Concise and informative using Bold, 16 points, Times New Roman font. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.
Author's complete detail: Kindly Provide the complete detail of each author in the following format-
Full Name:
Highest Qualification:
Post/Rank (If a student, provide the course name and course year):
Affiliation (College/University/Institute) with postal address:
email id: (fake/wrong/invalid email id may cause article rejection)
ORCID: If available
Note: If any of the authors is a Bachelor/Master Degree student, Kindly submit your article to Advanced Journal of Graduate Research. In the "Journal of Modern Materials", we are not accepting manuscript from the author below Ph.D. level students.
Affiliation: Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done and present affiliation if different than workplace). Kindly Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name.
Corresponding Author: Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that the e-mail address is given and that contact details are kept up to date by the corresponding author.


The manuscript should contain an abstract. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results, and major conclusions. The abstract should be self-contained and citation-free and should not exceed 300 words. Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.


Immediately after the abstract, provide at least 6 keywords related to your work. These keywords will be used for indexing purpose.
Effective Keywords include phrases that may not appear in the title and abstract but link the work to a wider field of research.


This section should be succinct, with no subheadings. State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

Materials and Methods

This part should contain sufficient detail to reproduce reported data. It can be divided into subsections if several methods are described. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.


A Theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction and lay the foundation for further work. In contrast, a Calculation section represents a practical development from a theoretical basis.

Results and Discussion

This section may each be divided by subheadings or may be combined.  A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate.  This should explore the significance of the results of the work, don’t repeat them. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.


This section should clearly explain the main conclusions of the work, highlighting its importance and relevance.


All acknowledgments (if any) should be included in a separate section before the references and may include those who contributed to the work in the manuscript but not listed in the author list, supporting grants, presentations, and so forth. The name of funding agencies should be written in full.


Author(s) are responsible for ensuring that the information in each reference is complete and accurate. All references must be numbered consecutively and citations of references in the text should be identified using numbers in square brackets (e.g., “as explained by AIJR [1]”; “as discussed in many reports [2]-[6]”). All references should be cited within the text; otherwise, these references will be automatically removed. All cited references should be listed after the acknowledgment section in IEEE style with doi or URL (link). For example -
[3]        W. S. Author, “Title of paper,” Name of Journal in italic, vol. x, no. x, pp. xxx-xxx, Abbrev. Month, year. doi or URL (link)

Main features of citation style are given as-

  • The author name format is, "first name (Initial), middle name (Initial) and last name". This differs from other styles where the author's last name is first.
  • The title of an article (or chapter, conference paper, patent, etc.) is in quotation marks.
  • The title of the book or journal is in italics.

Preparation of Figures

Upon submission of an article, authors are supposed to include all figures and tables at the appropriate place in the manuscript. Figures and tables should not be submitted in separate files. If the article is accepted, authors will be asked to provide separate files of the figures. All figures should be cited in the paper in consecutive order. Figures should be supplied in bitmap formats (Photoshop, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, etc.). Bitmap images should be of 500 dpi resolution at least unless the resolution is intentionally set to a lower level for scientific reasons. If a bitmap image has labels, the image and labels should be embedded in separate layers.

Preparation of Tables

Tables should be cited consecutively in the text. Every table must have a descriptive title and if numerical measurements are given, the units should be included in the column heading.

Supplementary files

Journal of Modern Materials accepts supplementary files to be published online along with an article. This feature can add dimension to the author’s article, as certain information cannot be added in main article or more appropriate as supplementary information.
For each supplementary files kindly supply a concise caption describing content of the file. Supplementary files will be published as received from the author without any conversion, editing or reforming.
