Abstract – These instructions give you guidelines for preparing papers published by USARJ. Do not use special characters, symbols, citations, or math in your title or abstract (150 – 250 words)

 Keywords – Use semicolon; Preparation; Journals; Research; Reviews

1. Introduction

 The main title (on the first page) should begin 1 3/16 inches (7 picas) from the top edge of the page, centered, and in Times New Roman 18-point, boldface type. Capitalize the first letter of nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs; do not capitalize articles, coordinate conjunctions, or prepositions (unless the title begins with such a word). Please initially capitalize only the first word in other titles, including section titles and first, second, and third-order headings (for example, “Titles and headings” — as in these guidelines).

 2. Author name(s) and affiliation(s)

 Author names and affiliations are to be centered beneath the title and printed in Times New Roman 12-point, non-boldface type. Affiliations and emails are centered below each author name, Times New Roman 9-point, italicized, not bold.

 3. Main text

 Type your main text in 10-point Times New Roman, single-spaced with 10-point interline spacing. Do not use double-spacing. All paragraphs should be indented 1 pica (approximately 1/6- or 0.17-inch or 0.422 cm). Be sure your text is fully justified.

 4. Figure(s) and Table(s)

 Figure and table captions and callouts should be 8-point Times New. Initially capitalize only the first word of each figure caption and table title. Figures and tables must be numbered separately. Figure captions are to be below the figures. Table titles are to be centered above the tables.

 6. First-order headings

 First-order headings should be Times New Roman 12-point boldface, initially capitalized, flush left, with one blank line before, and one blank line after. Use a period (“.”) after the heading number, not a colon.

 6.1. Second-order headings

 As in this heading, they should be Times New Roman 11-point boldface, initially capitalized, flush left, with one blank line before, and one after.

 6.1.1. Third-order headings

 Third-order headings, as in this paragraph, are discouraged. However, if you must use them, use 10-point Times New Roman, boldface, initially capitalized, flush left, preceded by one blank line, followed by a colon and your text on the same line.

 7. Discussion

 This section should provide an interpretation of the results and should not contain any additional primary results or data.

 8. Conclusions

 A conclusion might elaborate on the importance of the work or suggest applications and extensions.


 This section need not be numbered. It should be inserted after the Conclusions


 This section need not be numbered. The authors should list and number all bibliographical references in 8-point Times New Roman, single-spaced, at the end of your paper. For example, [1] is for a journal paper, [2] is for a book, [3] is for book section, and [4] is for a conference (symposium) paper.
