As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
  • Kindly download this template as a format for your manuscript before uploading in the next section.

Author Guidelines


Covenant journal of engineering and technology (CJET) is a peer-reviewed, Open Access multidisciplinary engineering journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles in all areas of engineering technology. It publishes both theoretical and experimental high-quality papers of permanent interest, not previously published in journals, in the field of engineering technology. In addition to peer-reviewed original research papers, the Editorial Board welcomes original research reports, state-of-the-art reviews and communications in the broadly defined field of engineering science and technology.

Submission of Manuscripts

Manuscripts should be submitted to the Editor Chief at the following address:

Manuscripts may be submitted electronically to e-mail: or online at the journal website

Manuscript preparation

It is important that the file be saved in the native format of the word processor used. All contributions should be typed, one-spaced, 12-pt font. All pages must be numbered in sequence. Removed all most formatting codes during processing the article. In particular, do not use the word processors options to justify text or to hyphenate words. However, do use bold face, italics, subscripts, superscripts, etc. Do not embed graphically designed equations or tables, but prepare these using the word processors facility. When preparing tables, if you are using a table grid, use only one grid for each individual table and not a grid for each row. If no grid is used, use tabs, not spaces, to align columns.

Essential title page information

Title. It should be concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.

Author names and affiliations. The names of the authors have to be clearly indicated. Present the authors affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. 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 phone numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address. Contact details must be kept up to date by the corresponding author.

Present/permanent address. If the author has moved since the work described in the article was done, or was visiting at the time, a Present address (or Permanent address) may be indicated as a footnote to that authors name. The address at which the author actually did the work must be retained as the main, affiliation address. Superscript Arabic numerals are used for such footnotes.


A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, nonstandard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.

Article structure Introduction

State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background. Avoid a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.


Provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.

Results and Discussion

Results and the discussion provided should be clear and concise.


The main conclusions of the study have to be presented in a short Conclusions section.


Acknowledgements are given in a separate section at the end of the article before the references.

References should be cited in the text by an Arabic numeral in square brackets, listed numerically and typed one-spaced on a separate sheet at the end of the paper. References should be arranged in the order in which they appear in the text. Journal titles should be abbreviated according to the latest Chemical Abstracts Service Source Index. Only articles that have been published or are in press should be included in the references. Unpublished results should be cited as such in the text. References in non-English language should be translated in English. The original language must be shown in brackets. In the reference list, the styling, punctuation and capitalization should be as follows:

For citations:

Formulae should be typewritten (Equation Editor) with ample space around them. The meanings of all symbols have to be given immediately after the equation in which they are first used. Equations should be sequentially numbered (on the right side of the equation and in parentheses). Subscripts and superscripts should be clearly indicated. Greek letters and other non-Latin symbols should be typed using Times New Roman Gr or Symbols.

Units should be given in SI system. They should be in the form, e.g. g cm-1 rather than g/cm.

Figures should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. All figures should be supplied on separate sheets. All illustrations must be readable when reduced to a width of 75 mm (single column figure) or 160 mm (double column figure). Photographs, charts and diagrams are all to be referred to as Figures(s) and should be numbered consecutively in the order to which they are referred. They should accompany the manuscript, but should not be included within the text. All illustrations should be clearly marked with the figure number. Figure captions should be typed double-spaced on a separate sheet. Figures should not include text. Graphic files should be in TIFF or JPG with resolution not less than 300 dpi.

Tables should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals in the order of appearance in the text. Each table should be given on separate sheet with a short descriptive title directly above it, with essential footnotes below.

The manuscript in English with a set of original illustrations must be submitted. The manuscript should be written with true-type font Times New Roman size 12 with double line spacing. Manuscripts of papers submitted to the journal will not be sent back to the authors.
