The Ahliya Journal of Allied Medico-Technology Science (AJAMTC). A multidisciplinary journal linking science and industry

Novelty and relevance

The Ahliya Journal of Allied Medico-Technology Science (AJAMTC) endeavors to publish articles of relevance to an international readership, emphasizing substantial novelty and contributions to scientific knowledge. We anticipate that submissions will offer new insights or test hypotheses, focusing on allied medical science, and include appropriate uncertainties and statistical analyses where applicable. Furthermore, we expect authors to contextualize their findings through discussion of relevant past and current literature. The editorial team retains the discretion to reject articles that do not meet these standards, whether through internal evaluation or external peer review. This may include articles that closely resemble prior publications, with only superficial changes such as variations in target substrates, materials, analyzed sites, or experimental methodologies.

General considerations

Please be aware that every new submission will undergo a thorough examination using the CrossCheck database to identify any instances of (self)-plagiarism. CrossCheck utilizes originality detection software to compare manuscripts against a comprehensive database comprising over 30 million articles from more than 200 publishers.

Typically, AJAMTC does not anticipate the combined number of tables and figures to surpass 10, unless it pertains to an extensive review article or under exceptional circumstances. Supplementary figures and tables that are not integral to the main text are encouraged to be submitted as online supplementary material. It is advisable to furnish reproducible data whenever feasible, along with comprehensive measurement uncertainties and error analyses. Data presentation should align with the precision of the underlying data, indicating the appropriate number of decimal places.

Types of paper

Manuscripts, which will be subject to peer review, should take one of the following forms:

Full Length Article

It should be definitive and describe a reasonably complete investigation

Short Communications

A short communication should delineate ideas, data, or investigations that are still in progress or are otherwise insufficient to warrant publication as a full-length original paper. Typically, short communications should not extend beyond two published pages. The journal prioritizes expediting the review and publication process for this type of article compared to original papers.

Review articles

Review articles are primarily considered only upon invitation by the Editor. Authors wishing to submit unsolicited review article ideas are advised to first discuss them and contact the respective Editor-in-Chief with a detailed proposal.


Ensuring the accurate and comprehensive classification of submissions is crucial for facilitating effective matching between submissions and papers. To achieve this, all submissions must be assigned one or two classifications from the 'Select classifications' tab during the submission process. Authors are also encouraged to select one or more classifications that best describe their expertise on their Editorial Manager profile page, and to keep this information updated.

By adhering to these guidelines, authors can help streamline the review and publication process, ensuring that submissions are appropriately matched with reviewers and editors who possess the relevant expertise to evaluate the content effectively. This enhances the quality and efficiency of the peer-review process, ultimately contributing to the overall success of the publication.

Submission checklist

You can use this list to carry out a final check of your submission before you send it to the journal for review. Please check the relevant section in this Guide for Authors for more details.

If all the items on this checklist have been completed satisfactorily, your submission should be ready to send to the journal for review. Make sure to double-check the Guide for Authors section to ensure you haven't missed any specific requirements or instructions.

Before you begin

Declaration of competing interest

The corresponding author must disclose any financial or personal connections with individuals or entities that could unfairly impact their research results on behalf of all co-authors. Possible conflicts of interest include employment, consulting agreements, stock ownership, honoraria, compensation for expert testimony, patent applications or registrations, and receiving grants or other types of support. All writers are expected to provide relevant details to the appropriate author, regardless of any conflicts of interest they may have. Authors should clearly indicate if they have no conflicts of interest. The corresponding author must use a specific tool to create a joint statement, which needs to be included with the manuscript when attaching files during the submission process.

Please do not convert the .docx template to another file type. Author signatures are not required.

Declaration of generative AI in scientific writing

This instruction specifically applies to the writing stage of the research process and does not cover the use of AI tools for data analysis and generating insights. Authors should use generative artificial intelligence (AI) and AI-assisted technologies solely to improve readability and language quality during the writing phase. Humans should oversee and control the application of this technology, with authors carefully examining and modifying the content it produces. It is crucial to acknowledge that AI-generated content may appear authoritative but can be susceptible to inaccuracies, exclusions, or prejudices. AI and AI-assisted technologies should not be credited as authors or co-authors, and should not be referenced as such. Being an author entails responsibilities and tasks that are closely connected to human capacities, as outlined in Elsevier's AI policy for writers.

Authors must declare the utilization of AI and AI-assisted technologies during the writing process in their work, following the given guidelines. An equivalent statement will be featured in the published work. Authors are fully responsible and liable for the content of their work.

Disclosure instructions

Authors are required to disclose the utilization of generative AI and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process by incorporating a statement at the conclusion of their manuscript in the core manuscript file, positioned prior to the References section. This statement should be presented within a distinct section titled 'Declaration of Generative AI and AI-assisted Technologies in the Writing Process'.

Statement: During the preparation of this work the author(s) used [NAME TOOL / SERVICE] in order to [REASON]. After using this tool/service, the author(s) reviewed and edited the content as needed and take(s) full responsibility for the content of the publication.

This declaration specifically excludes the use of basic tools for tasks such as grammar checking, spelling verification, and reference formatting. If authors have no disclosures regarding the use of generative AI or AI-assisted technologies in the writing process, they are not required to include a statement.

Submission declaration and verification

Submission of an article indicates that the research presented has not been previously published, except in cases such as abstracts, published lectures, or academic theses, as outlined in the  'Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication'  guidelines. It also asserts that the work is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that all authors have consented to its submission. Additionally, approval for publication has been obtained from the relevant authorities where the research was conducted. Should the article be accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, whether in English or any other language, including electronically, without written consent from the copyright holder. To ensure adherence to these guidelines, articles may undergo scrutiny by Crossref Similarity Check  and other plagiarism detection software.

Reporting sex- and gender-based analyses

Reporting guidance

For studies involving humans, animals, or eukaryotic cells, researchers are expected to incorporate sex and gender-based analyses (SGBA) into their research design in accordance with the requirements of funders/sponsors and the established best practices within their respective fields. Authors are encouraged to address the sex and/or gender dimensions of their research within their articles. If it is not feasible to do so, authors should acknowledge this as a limitation that may affect the generalizability of their findings. It is essential for authors to explicitly define the terms "sex" and/or "gender" they are utilizing in their research to enhance precision, rigor, and reproducibility, and to prevent ambiguity or confusion regarding these constructs. Authors may consult the  Sex and Gender Equity in Research (SAGER) guidelines and the SAGER guidelines checklist for systematic approaches to integrating and reviewing sex and gender information throughout the research process, including study design, data analysis, outcome reporting, and research interpretation. However, it should be noted that there is no universally accepted set of guidelines for defining sex and gender.

Author contributions

For transparency purposes, corresponding authors are required to document the contributions of co-authors to the manuscript using the appropriate CRediT roles. The CRediT taxonomy comprises 14 distinct roles delineating the specific contributions made by each contributor to the scholarly output.

It is important to note that not all CRediT roles may be applicable to every manuscript, and authors may have contributed through multiple roles. Below is an example illustrating how authors can provide co-author contributions using the relevant CRediT roles:


Conceptualization: [Author A, Author B]

Methodology: [Author B]

Software: [Author C]

Validation: [Author A, Author D]

Formal analysis: [Author D]

Investigation: [Author A, Author B, Author D]

Resources: [Author E]

Data curation: [Author E, Author F]

Writing – original draft preparation: [Author A, Author B]

Writing – review and editing: [Author A, Author B, Author C, Author D]

Visualization: [Author C]

Supervision: [Author B, Author E]

Project administration: [Author E]

Funding acquisition: [Author E]

In this example, the contributions of each author are specified using the relevant CRediT roles. Some authors may have contributed to multiple roles, reflecting their diverse involvement in the research project.

Changes to Authorship

Authors are expected to meticulously consider the list and order of authors before submitting their manuscript, providing the definitive list of authors at the time of the original submission. Any changes to the authorship list, such as additions, deletions, or rearrangements, should be made solely before the manuscript has been accepted, and only if sanctioned by the journal Editor. To initiate such modifications, the corresponding author must furnish the following to the Editor: (a) a rationale for the alteration in the author list and (b) written confirmation (e.g., via email or letter) from all authors endorsing the addition, removal, or rearrangement. In cases involving the addition or removal of authors, this confirmation must also be obtained from the individual being added or removed.


The Editor will entertain requests for changes to the authorship list after the manuscript has been accepted only under exceptional circumstances. During the Editor's review of the request, publication of the manuscript will be halted. If the manuscript has already been published in an online issue, any approved changes will necessitate a corrigendum.


Upon acceptance of an article, authors will receive an email requesting them to complete a 'Journal Publishing Agreement'. This agreement outlines the terms and conditions of publication, and authors will be asked to review and sign it. The email will confirm the receipt of the manuscript and will include either a 'Journal Publishing Agreement' form or a link to an online version of the agreement. Authors are required to complete this agreement promptly to proceed with the publication process.

Role of the funding source

The authors are required to identify the source(s) of financial support for the research and/or preparation of the article. Additionally, they should provide a brief description of the role of the sponsor(s), if any, in the following aspects:

  1. Study Design: Describe the involvement, if any, of the sponsor(s) in the design of the study.
  2. Data Collection, Analysis, and Interpretation: Specify whether the sponsor(s) played a role in the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data.
  3. Writing of the Report: Indicate if the sponsor(s) contributed to the writing of the report.
  4. Decision to Submit for Publication: Mention whether the sponsor(s) were involved in the decision to submit the article for publication.

If the funding source(s) had no involvement in any of the above aspects, it is recommended to explicitly state this in the acknowledgment section or in a separate statement within the manuscript.

Language (usage and editing services)

Authors who believe their English-language manuscript may require editing to eliminate potential grammatical or spelling errors and to adhere to appropriate scientific standards are encouraged to seek professional editing assistance before submission.


Our online submission system provides a step-by-step guide for entering your article details and uploading your files. The system consolidates your article files into a single PDF file used in the peer-review process. However, editable files (such as Word or LaTeX) are necessary for typesetting your article for final publication. All communication, including the Editor's decision notification and requests for revisions, will be sent via email.
Please go to the submission page to submit your paper.


Submission to this journal is conducted entirely online, and you will be guided step by step through the process of creating and uploading your files. Our system automatically converts your files into a single PDF format, which is utilized in the peer-review process.

As part of our "Your Paper Your Way" service, you have the option to submit your manuscript as a single file for the refereeing process. This file can be in PDF format or as a Word document, with any layout that referees can use to evaluate your manuscript. It should include high-quality figures suitable for review. If you prefer, you may still provide some or all of the source files during the initial submission. Please be aware that individual figure files larger than 10 MB must be uploaded separately.


At the submission stage, there are no strict requirements regarding reference formatting. References can be presented in any style or format as long as consistency is maintained throughout. When applicable, references should include the author(s) name(s), journal title/book title, chapter title/article title, year of publication, volume number/book chapter, and the article number or pagination. The use of DOI (Digital Object Identifier) is strongly encouraged whenever possible.

Formatting requirements

While there are no stringent formatting requirements, all manuscripts must include essential elements to effectively convey the content. These elements typically include an Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Conclusions, as well as Artwork and Tables with Captions.

If your article incorporates Videos or other Supplementary material, it should be included in the initial submission for peer review.

Furthermore, it is advisable to divide the article into clearly defined sections to enhance readability and organization.

Figures and tables embedded in text

Please ensure that figures and tables included in the single file are positioned adjacent to the relevant text in the manuscript, rather than at the top or bottom of the file. The corresponding caption should be placed directly below the figure or table. This arrangement improves the clarity and readability of the manuscript, allowing readers to easily associate figures and tables with their respective explanations in the text.

Peer review

This journal employs a single anonymized review process. Upon submission, all contributions undergo an initial assessment by the editor to determine their suitability for the journal. Manuscripts deemed suitable are then typically assigned to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers who evaluate the scientific quality of the paper. The final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles rests with the Editor, whose decision is ultimate and binding.

Editors adhere to strict ethical standards and abstain from involvement in decisions concerning papers they have authored themselves, those authored by family members or colleagues, or those related to products or services in which they have a vested interest. Submissions falling under such circumstances are subject to the journal's standard procedures, with peer review conducted independently of the relevant editor and their research groups.


Use of word processing software

At the revision stage, regardless of the original submission's file format, you are required to provide us with an editable file of the entire article. It is important to keep the layout of the text as simple as possible, as most formatting codes will be removed and replaced during the processing of the article. The electronic text should be prepared in a manner closely resembling that of conventional manuscripts. To minimize errors, it is strongly recommended that you utilize the 'spell-check' and 'grammar-check' functions of your word processor before submitting your revised manuscript.


You are recommended to use the Elsevier article class elsarticle.cls to prepare your manuscript and BibTeX to generate your bibliography.
Our LaTeX site has detailed submission instructions, templates and other information.

Essential title page information


The title of your manuscript should be concise and informative, as it will be used in information-retrieval systems. Whenever possible, avoid using abbreviations and formulae. The title should accurately reflect the content of your research and provide readers with a clear understanding of the focus of your study.

Author names and affiliations

Please provide the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author, ensuring that all names are accurately spelled. If applicable, you may add your name in your own script behind the English transliteration. Below the names, present the authors' affiliation addresses, indicating each affiliation with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Include the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name, and if available, the email address of each author.

Corresponding author: John Smith



Highlights are essential for this journal as they enhance the discoverability of your article through search engines. They should comprise a concise collection of bullet points summarizing the novel results of your research and any new methods employed during the study (if applicable).

When submitting your Highlights, please ensure they are provided in a separate editable file within the online submission system. The file name should include 'Highlights', and you should include 3 to 5 bullet points, with each bullet point containing a maximum of 100 characters, including spaces.


A concise and factual abstract is necessary for your submission. The abstract should succinctly outline the purpose of the research, the principal results, and the major conclusions. It is important to note that the abstract may be presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone and provide a clear overview of the study.

Avoid including references in the abstract, but if absolutely necessary, cite the author(s) and year(s). Additionally, refrain from using non-standard or uncommon abbreviations. If these abbreviations are essential, they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.

The abstract may be presented as a single paragraph or divided into sections, such as introduction with aim, methods, main results, and conclusion. Regardless of the format chosen, ensure that the abstract effectively summarizes the key aspects of the research.


Following the abstract, please provide a maximum of 6 keywords, utilizing American spelling and avoiding general or plural terms as well as multiple concepts. Limit the use of abbreviations to those firmly established in the field. These keywords will be utilized for indexing purposes.

Article structure

Subdivision - numbered sections

Your article should be organized into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered accordingly, such as 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2, and so forth (with the abstract not included in the section numbering). This numbering system should also be used for internal cross-referencing, rather than simply referring to "the text." Additionally, each subsection may be provided with a brief heading, and each heading should appear on its own separate line.


When structuring your article, ensure it is divided into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered as 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2, and so forth, with the abstract excluded from the section numbering. This numbering system should also be used for internal cross-referencing; avoid simply referring to "the text." Each subsection may be accompanied by a brief heading, with each heading presented on its own separate line. Follow this general outline when writing manuscripts:

Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords.

Introduction, Material and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion.

Acknowledgements, Appendix, References, Figure legends, Tables.

The introduction should briefly describe the background and reason for doing the work described. The Material and Methods should provide enough information for readers to repeat the experiment. The discussion should evaluate the results and their relationship to comparable works. The conclusion should briefly summarize the obtained results.

Math formulae

Math equations should be submitted as editable text rather than as images. Whenever possible, present simple formulae in line with normal text. Use the solidus (/) instead of a horizontal line for small fractional terms, such as X/Y. Variables should be presented in italics, and powers of e are often more conveniently denoted by exp. Any equations that need to be displayed separately from the text and are referred to explicitly in the text should be numbered consecutively.

For example:

                                                 x / y = z                                                  (1)

Please ensure that equations adhere to these formatting guidelines to facilitate readability and consistency throughout the manuscript.

Figure captions

Each illustration should be accompanied by a caption consisting of a brief title (not located on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. While text within the illustrations should be kept to a minimum, it is important to explain all symbols and abbreviations used. This ensures that readers can understand the content of the illustration without needing to refer back to the main text. By providing clear and informative captions, the significance of each illustration can be effectively communicated.


Tables should be submitted as editable text rather than as images. They can be placed either next to the relevant text in the article or on separate page(s) at the end. Tables should be numbered consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text, and any table notes should be placed below the table body.

Please be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Additionally, avoid using vertical rules and shading in table cells, as this can detract from readability and clarity.


Abbreviations that are not standard in the field should be defined in a footnote to be placed on the first page of the article. In cases where such abbreviations are unavoidable in the abstract, they must also be defined at their first mention within the abstract itself, as well as in the footnote. It is important to maintain consistency in the use of abbreviations throughout the article.


Please compile acknowledgments in a separate section at the end of the article, just before the references. Avoid including acknowledgments on the title page, as a footnote to the title, or elsewhere within the manuscript. In this section, list individuals who provided assistance during the research process, such as those who offered language help, writing assistance, or proofreading of the article.

Formatting of funding sources

Funding: This work was supported by the National Institutes of Health [grant numbers xxxx, yyyy]; the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Seattle, WA [grant number zzzz]; and the United States Institutes of Peace [grant number aaaa].

If the funding was provided by a block grant or other resources available to a university, college, or research institution, please specify the name of the institute or organization that provided the funding.

If the research did not receive any specific grant from funding agencies in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors, include the following sentence: "This research did not receive any specific grant from funding agencies in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors."


Citation in text

It is important to ensure that every reference cited in the text is also included in the reference list, and vice versa. Additionally, any references cited in the abstract must be provided in full in the reference list.

Unpublished results and personal communications are generally not recommended for inclusion in the reference list, but they may be mentioned in the text. If these references are included in the reference list, they should follow the standard reference style of the journal, and the publication date should be substituted with either 'Unpublished results' or 'Personal communication'. Citation of a reference as 'in press' indicates that the item has been accepted for publication.

Reference links

To ensure increased discoverability of research and high-quality peer review, it is essential to provide accurate data in the references. This includes correct surnames, journal/book titles, publication years, and pagination. Incorrect information may prevent the creation of links to abstracting and indexing services, such as Scopus, Crossref, and PubMed.

When copying references, it is crucial to be careful as they may already contain errors. Additionally, the use of DOI (Digital Object Identifier) is highly encouraged, as it provides a permanent link to electronic articles.

VanDecar J.C., Russo R.M., James D.E., Ambeh W.B., Franke M. (2003). Aseismic continuation of the Lesser Antilles slab beneath northeastern Venezuela. Journal of Geophysical Research, . Please ensure that the format of such citations matches the style of all other references in the paper.

Web references

When citing web references, it is important to provide at least the full URL and the date when the reference was last accessed. Additionally, any further information that is known, such as DOI, author names, dates, or reference to a source publication, should also be included.

Web references can be listed separately after the reference list under a different heading if desired, or they can be included within the reference list itself.

For example:

Smith, J. (2023). Title of Web Page. Retrieved from

(Accessed on January 20, 2024).

In cases where a DOI is available:

Doe, A. (2022). Title of Web Article. Publisher.

(Accessed on February 10, 2024).

Providing comprehensive information about web references ensures that readers can easily locate the sources cited in the manuscript.

Data references

This journal encourages the citation of underlying or relevant datasets in manuscripts. When citing datasets in the text, include a data reference in the Reference List with the following elements: author name(s), dataset title, data repository, version (where available), year, and global persistent identifier.

To properly identify a data reference, add [dataset] immediately before the reference. Note that the [dataset] identifier will not appear in the published article.

For example:

Smith, J., Doe, A. (2023). Title of Dataset. Data Repository. Version X.  [dataset]. Citing datasets in this manner enhances transparency and reproducibility of research findings.

Preprint references

When a preprint has been subsequently published as a peer-reviewed publication, the formal publication should be used as the reference. However, if there are preprints that are central to your work or cover crucial developments in the topic but have not yet been formally published, they may be referenced.

Preprints should be clearly marked as such, for example, by including the word "preprint" or the name of the preprint server as part of the reference. Additionally, the preprint DOI should be provided.

For example:

Smith, J., Doe, A. (2023). Title of Preprint. Preprint Server.  [preprint]. This approach ensures transparency regarding the status of the referenced work and provides readers with the necessary information to access the preprint if desired.

References in a special issue

To ensure clarity and coherence, it is important to add the words 'this issue' to any references in the reference list and citations in the text to other articles in the same Special Issue. This helps readers understand that the referenced articles are part of the same collection.

For example, in the reference list:

Smith, J., Doe, A. (2023). Title of Article. Journal Name, Volume(Issue), Page Range. [this issue]

And in the text citation:

(Smith & Doe, 2023 [this issue])

By including 'this issue', readers will immediately recognize that the referenced articles are part of the same Special Issue, facilitating navigation and understanding of the content.

Reference management software

Like most Elsevier journals have their reference template available in many of the most popular reference management software products. These include all products that support Citation Style Language styles, such as Mendeley. Using citation plug-ins from these products, authors only need to select the appropriate journal template when preparing their article, after which citations and bibliographies will be automatically formatted in the journal's style. If no template is yet available for this journal, please follow the format of the sample references and citations as shown in this Guide. If you use reference management software, please ensure that you remove all field codes before submitting the electronic manuscript. More information on how to remove field codes from different reference management software.

Reference Formatting

While there are no strict requirements on reference formatting at submission, authors are strongly encouraged to adhere to the correct journal reference style. This makes it easier for Editors and reviewers to assess the paper. In any case, it is important that the reference style is consistent.

Authors should ensure that, where applicable, the following information is included in the references: author(s) name(s), journal title/book title, chapter title/article title, year of publication, volume number/book chapter, and pagination. The use of DOI is highly encouraged.

Please note that the reference style used by the journal will be applied to the accepted article by Elsevier at the proof stage. Any missing data will be highlighted at the proof stage for the author to correct. Therefore, it is advisable for authors to provide as complete and accurate reference information as possible during the submission process.

Reference style

In-text citations should adhere to the following guidelines:

  1. Single author: Include the author's name (without initials) and the year of publication.
  2. Two authors: Include both authors' names and the year of publication.
  3. Three or more authors: Include the first author's name followed by 'et al.' and the year of publication.

Citations can be made directly within the text or parenthetically. Groups of references can be listed alphabetically first, then chronologically, or vice versa.


- "As demonstrated (Allan, 2000a, 2000b, 1999; Allan and Jones, 1999)…"

- "Or, as demonstrated (Jones, 1999; Allan, 2000)…"

References should be arranged alphabetically first and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. If there are multiple references from the same author(s) in the same year, differentiate them with letters (e.g., 'a', 'b', 'c', etc.) placed after the year of publication.

Examples of different types of references:

The corresponding author will receive a customized Share Link at no cost, providing 50 days of free access to the final published version of the article on ScienceDirect. This Share Link can be utilized to share the article via various communication channels, including email and social media.

For an additional fee, paper offprints can be ordered through the offprint order form, which is sent once the article is accepted for publication. It's important to note that corresponding authors who have published their article via gold open access will not receive a Share Link, as the final published version of their article is already available open access on ScienceDirect and can be shared through the article's DOI link.
