The manuscripts submitted must be original and innovative and neither previously published, nor simultaneously published in other journals. The content of published articles includes
CT&F CONTENT INCLUDES
a) SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL RESEARCH ARTICLES: Documents which present in detail the original results of research projects. Manuscript’s structure generally includes four important parts: introduction, methodology, results and conclusions.
Note: Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been unpublished works that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The opinion expressed in them is the sole responsibility of the authors. The reception of a manuscript does not imply its publication; it shall be subject to various revisions and evaluations prior to publication.
Manuscript Preparation:Use the following guidelines to prepare your article:
The original submission must be an editable file format, preferred word processor, as a guide you can use the template entitled ‘CTF_manuscript_Template’ (Anexo No. 1) Please do not alter the formatting and style layouts which have been set up in this document, the paragraphs continue from here and are only separated by headings, subheadings, images and formulae. The section headings are arranged by numbers, bold and 14 pt. following the article structure depending of your paper type (Research, Special consideration or Review) you can choose the appropriated. The subheadings won't be numerate and must be in italic, bold and 12 pt.As indicated in the template, paper should be prepared in single column format on a A4 paper size (192mm x 262 mm). The full text must be 12 pt, on a single spaced. Do not number pages on the front, as page numbers will be added automatically. Leave a line clear between paragraphs. All the required style templates are provided in this document with the appropriate name supplied, e.g. ‘Manuscript title’.
On average, the manuscripts must contain 20 pages and a maximum of 10 Figures or Tables. Footnotes are not accepted.
The author must provide landline and mobile telephone numbers, and a personal email address in order to facilitate contact and process follow up.
NOMENCLATURE AND UNITS: Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI). If other quantities are mentioned, give their equivalent in SI. You are urged to consult IUPAC: Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry for further information. Decimals must be separated by a period. To indicate thousands, half a space is included between the digits.
MATH EXPRESSION AND CHEMICAL FORMULAE: Please submit math equations and chemical formulae as editable text and not as images. Present simple formulae in line with normal text where possible and use the solidus (/) instead of a horizontal line for small fractional terms, e.g., X/Y. In principle, variables are to be presented in italics. Number consecutively any equations that have to be displayed separately from the text, the equations must be identified within parentheses and in italic on the right side of equation.
TABLES: All tables should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body. Headings should be placed above tables, left justified. Leave one-line space between the heading and the table. Tables must be embedded into the text as editable text and not as images. Below is an example which authors may find useful.
Table 1. An example of a table
Source: If the table is not self-created, source requires attribution in the legend
* Significant at the 0.05 probability level.
FIGURES: As the same way that tables the figures must be consecutively numbered into the text, the term "Figure" is used for diagrams, photographs, and graphs. The figures do not require frames. The figures must be in an acceptable format (TIFF (or JPEG), with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) for an acceptable print.If a Figure or Table is based on information coming from an external source, the text must contain the whole bibliographic reference, just on the bottom side of the Figure or Table or inside the normal paper text.
REFERENCES: Referencing is an academic convention designed to illustrate that you can collate information from various sources. Sources can be books, journal articles, newspaper reports, standards, patents, conference proceedings, web pages, etc.
CT&F´s referencing style is an adaptation of American Psychological Association – APA 6th edition and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers- IEEE editorial style manual, also known as the numerical system. This style uses numerical citations in square brackets to refer to a reference list at the end of the paper. Attached to this guide we provide the file of CLS code, named: “CT&F Journal Style.txt” for be using with your free reference manager Mendely Desktop or could be linked on url: http://csl.mendeley.com/styles/530091301/ieee-11
Just, open the Mendely Desktop, clic on View/Citation Style/More Styles and drag and drop the CLS file code on the window and is installed automatically ready for use.

Sending of manuscripts
Articles in technical English or Spanish must be sent to the Editorial Board coupled with a filled Presenta-tion Letter format at least six months in advanced of the following date of publication of the journal to the email address: email@example.com. However, it´s possible to send articles throughout the year, so CT&F receives articles for its both annually editions. If the articles are approved by the Editorial Board, they are sent to at least two internationally well-known and qualified anonymous peers reviewers, external to the Editorial Board. Authors must provide the contact data of four potential reviewers, experts in the topic of the article, and without any link or relationship to the institute to which the authors are affiliated.
The Editorial Board continues the process by verifying the evaluations of the external peer reviewers and sending the responses from authors, requesting also any modification to style which it may consider pertinent, prior to authorizing publication. If the Editorial Board of CT&F has not received response from the authors to the suggestions done for the external reviewers after a period of three weeks, the paper will be remove from the evaluation process.
An article that has been approved by the Board is sent to the authors for approval of the final version. The authors receive a sample of the issue free of cost.
