Articles must be submitted in digital format of Microsoft Word 2007 or higher.
Extension of works
The text of an original, reflection or review article, including figures and tables, should not exceed ten (10) pages. These limits can only be exceeded, exceptionally, after consultation with the Editorial Committee of the journal.
Fonts to be used
The following font types are used in the body of the article: Title in the writing language (“Title” Style Time New Roman 18): Title in the English language (“Title_English” Style size 16 in italics): For the titles of section (Style “Heading 1”):Time New Roman CAPITAL LETTERS SIZE 10 in bold.
• For section subtitles (Style «Heading 2»): Time New Roman bold, size 10.
• For the titles of sections (Style «Heading 3»): Time New Roman bold, size 10.
• For the authors, the abstract (in both languages), the body of the document and the references are used (“Normal” Style): Time New Roman size 10. keywords, Time New Roman size 9
• For the foot of the figures (Style «Heading»): Time New Roman bold, size 9.
• For table headings (“EncTabla” Style): Times New Roman bold, size 10.
Numbering and Bullets.
Paragraph Numbering will be used exceptionally and, as shown below, only up to two levels
The vignettes will be used exceptionally and, as shown below, only up to two levels. The exemplified vignettes will be used. In no case images will be used as vignettes.
Each figure or photo will have a numbered title (for example Fig. 1.), followed by a brief information, but sufficiently explanatory, so that it can be understood without having to refer to the text. The numbering and title of the figures and photos will be placed below them. The figures will be processed in the graphic editor selected by the author and their resolution will be 72 pp. Photos must be of good quality. In the text they will be cited by their number, for example, figure 1. In the example illustration it can be seen that only the label and the number are in bold.
Each figure or photo must be embedded in a frame and appear immediately after being cited and all the characters that appear in it must be perfectly legible.
Fig. 1. Perspectives for the identification of industrial energy conservation potentials
Each table will have a numbered title (for example Table 1.), followed by brief information, but sufficiently explanatory, so that it can be understood without having to refer to the text. The numbering and title of the tables will be placed above them. In the text they will be cited by their number, for example, table 1.
In the example table it can be seen that only the label and the number are in bold. Each table must appear immediately after being cited. Each table must be done in Word. The title of the table must come inside the table.
It is good to clarify that in an article, the number of figures and tables must not exceed 10. These limits can only be exceeded, exceptionally, after consultation with the Editorial Committee of the journal.
Tabla 1. Input parameter values for variant 1
Except in cases where it is inappropriate, the International System of Measurement Units (SI) will always be used. If it is convenient for a better understanding of the subject matter, after the magnitude expressed in SI, the value and units in another system can be added in parentheses. On the other hand, it is convenient to use no more than five significant figures. Note that all SI quantities must be 1 space apart from numerical values (examples: 450 kW, 10%, 30°C). Additionally, it will be ensured that the numerical values and the corresponding magnitudes or the symbols listed above must appear on the same line.
Mathematical formulas and equations should be placed one space apart from adjacent paragraphs, centered at the width of the margin, and numbered consecutively to their right. These equations must always be stated before putting them (as is done with figures and tables, never put expression (1)). Example: equation (1). After the equations, a description of the variables (the variables of the equation, when they are announced in the text is done in Word) that compose it will be placed. Using the equation editor built into Microsoft Word 2013 or 2016 is not recommended. Use of the MathType equation editor is recommended. Example in the equation:
Where Btotal: Number of workers x salary/days; CUP (peso, national currency of Cuba)
P_x: Quantity of materials used for their respective costs; cup
The variables within the text must be incorporated in word format and NOT in any equation editor.
The symbology to be used within the equations and within the text must be taken from the character map of the Time New Roman font. All symbology on this map can be used.
The articles are divided into:
1. Primary Partition (Section Title)
2. Second Order Partition (Section Subheadings)
3. Third order partition (Section title)
Invariably the article will consist of:
The introduction should provide the reader with a brief and sufficient overview of the objective of the article and the theoretical framework on which it is based. After the introduction, the development of the article is presented, the following sections must follow an explanatory and clear order of the relevant aspects of the research.
2. MATERIALS AND METHODS
In this section, which may have a different title, the samples or study objects, the experimental installation and its general characteristics relevant to the study must be described.
In this section, which may have a different title, the key results of the research must be presented objectively, without interpretation and in an orderly and logical sequence of the illustrative materials (tables and figures) and the text.
4. DISCUSSION OF RESULTS
This section shows the real contribution to knowledge, therefore the authors must interpret the results and translate the findings into a practical, conceptual or theoretical meaning; these interpretations should be made in the same logical order in which the results were presented. In addition, they can reflect on the implications of these results, mentioning previous and future research, as well as possible uses of the results and trends on the topic or problem addressed. Potential limitations of the study, such as sample deficiencies, design problems, difficulties in data collection, etc., should be included.
This section should highlight the most important contributions and compare them with previous ones and their limitations, if any, suggesting possible research. Here the current and possible applications must also be proposed, as well as the recommendations that it proposes for the universalization or extension of the published results.
In all cases, repeating what is stated in the summary will be avoided. AND VERY IMPORTANT The first conclusions presented must be those that correspond to the stated objectives.
If necessary, this section should be located after the conclusions. It is recommended that the authors thank those who have allowed, helped and collaborated in obtaining the results referred to in the article. In case it is appropriate to express thanks, it is suggested to use a typical heading such as: “The authors wish to thank…”
References are important to the reader, so each citation must be correct and complete. There is no editorial verification of the correctness of the data (authors, titles, journal, congress, volume, number, pages, date, etc.). Yes there will be about its style and completeness. Therefore, an error in the data of a reference will reduce the authority and value of the article. References should be made in the place of the sentence in which they are applied, and avoiding listing at the end of a paragraph more than 3 or 4 references related to your study and that were not really important in it, such as: [1-2 ; 4; 7; 10; 12]. Articles with fewer than 10 nor more than 25 references will not be accepted, except for bibliographic reviews whose number of references will be approved by the editorial committee for each particular case and all must be cited in the text, as well as all the references cited in the text, should be listed in this section. References must be related to publications and documents that are generally accessible to the public through ordinary channels (books, magazine articles, congress articles, patents, doctoral theses with ISSN, conferences, application notes and accessible technical reports from companies, university departments and research organizations).
The following is a list of sources that should not be included in this section:
— TV shows and newspaper articles.
— Preparation of postgraduate courses or any other related document, such as course manuals of any kind.
— Programs of subjects, careers, teaching guides of any kind.
— Manuals of equipment, instruments, etc.
— Software, software manuals and software sites.
— Reports, unpublished books and monographs.
— Catalogues, brochures and bulletins.
— Unregistered journals and non-scientific journals.
— Standards of companies or other entities not recognized internationally.
— Documents from Internet sites not recognized for their scientific rigor.
— Works from events not recognized internationally.
— Diploma papers that do not have an ISSN or DOI and that are not published in a virtual repository.
— Master's theses, which do not have an ISSN or DOI and which are not published in a virtual repository.
— Doctoral theses that do not have an ISSN and that are not published in a virtual repository.
— Any other type of document that is not accessible by the general public.
• If you want or need to reference the previous sources, you can include them within the text, although their use is not convenient, since the reader does not have access to them.
• Avoid using references that are hard to find.
• Avoid listing related references that were not relevant to the study.
• Use peer-reviewed journal articles published on the internet as essential references.
• All references used in an article must be available to the reader.
• They must have an actuality (last 5 years) of 70%.
• Avoid self-citations, only 10% of author self-citations are allowed.
Even if doctoral theses and papers at scientific events are published on the Internet, use should be moderate. Remember: References are one of the quality indexes of a scientific article.
The criteria for creating bibliographic references (content, form and structure) established by the Energetic Engineering journal, which must be met for the article to be sent for review, is the one established by the Vancouver standard.
If such a reference seems absolutely essential, it may be added to the text in parentheses. In the bibliography, a work that has been accepted for publication can be included, citing the name of the journal, followed by "accepted for publication".
Use as many updated and quality references as possible, mainly those published in the last 5 years and from scientific journals, both national and international. Avoid excessive self-dating.
Any information that does not pertain to your experiment and is not "common knowledge" should be acknowledged by citation.
References should be made in the place of the sentence in which they are applied, and avoiding listing at the end of a paragraph more than 3 or 4 references related to your study and that were not really important in it, such as: [1-2 ; 4; 7; 10; 12].
Articles with less than 10 references and no more than 25 will not be accepted, all must be cited in the text, as well as all the references cited in the text, must appear in this section.
The numerical citation system of the references will be used. This system refers to the citation of the work of origin by means of a number that refers to a list of works cited at the end of the article, so these must be identified with a consecutive number between brackets and grouped at the end of the text in the order of appearance. In the sentences, do not refer to the reference number, "as in ", but write it at the end of it, always before the punctuation marks. Multiple references should be listed separated by a hyphen [2-3]. If you wish to mention the name of an author, do so in the context of the sentence, writing the author's first surname and the year of the work consulted in parentheses, for example: "Anglada (1999) defines…"; at the end of the idea expressed by that author, place the number corresponding to that reference .
Any reference that does not appear in the Latin alphabet must be transliterated in accordance with international regulations.
The criteria for creating bibliographic references (content, form and structure) established by the Revista Ingeniería Energética, which must be met for the article to be sent for review, is that established by the Vancouver standard.
They will be listed in order of appearance and will comply with:
-At least 70% must belong to the last 5 years.
-At least 70% will be foreign references and scientific journals.
-There must be a correspondence of 70/25/5 in articles of serial publications, books, monographs, manuals and other types, between the references used.
Those works that have been edited by recognized entities will be cited as published in any medium: universities, research centers, international organizations, high-level companies, etc.
The reference to a document on the Internet must show the full URL and the date it was consulted.
• The content, form and structure of the Electronic Texts, Databases and Computer Programs, whether they are accessible online, or whether they are on a tangible computer medium (floppy disk, magnetic tape, cd-rom, etc.) must respond to the following model:
Primary author. Title [media type]. Edition. Secondary author(s). Place of publication: publisher, date of publication, date of update / revision. [Date consulted] (Collection). Normalized number. Availability and access. Notes .
• The content, form and structure of Collaborations in Electronic Texts, Databases and Computer Programs must respond to the following model:
Main author (of the collaboration). "Title" (of the collaboration). In: Main author (of the source document). Title (of the source document). [Media type]. Edition. Secondary author (of the source document). Place of publication: publisher, date of publication. Numbering and/or location of the collaboration within the source document. Date of update / revision. [Date of consultation]. Normalized number. Availability and access. Notes [3-5].
• The content, form and structure of Electronic Serial Publications. Complete Series or Entire Copy of a Series must respond to the following model:
Title [media type]. Edition. Place of publication: publisher, date of publication. [Date consulted] (Collection). Normalized number. Availability and access. Notes [5-6].
• The content, form and structure of Electronic Serial Publications. Articles and Contributions in serial publications must respond to the following model:
Main author (of the collaboration). "Title (of the collaboration)". Title (of the serial publication). [Media type]. Edition. Place of publication: Publisher, date of publication. Issue number. Location of the part within the source document. [Date of consultation]. Standardized number Availability and access. Grades. [7-8].
• The content, form and structure of the Electronic Bulletins, Discussion Lists and Electronic Messages must respond to the following model:
Author of the message Title of the message. Messaging system title [media type]. Date of the message. Message time. [Date of consultation]. Availability and access [7-8].
The self-citation rate for the Energy Engineering journal will be less than 10%.
Those works that have been published by recognized entities will be cited as published in any digital or printed medium: universities, research centers, international organizations and high-level companies.
Avoid excessive referrals. Only references that are really necessary and directly relevant to the research topic should be cited.
Do not support, by reference, statements that the entire audience knows.
Avoid using as references: theses, abstracts, project reports if the information has not been published in a scientific journal, as well as books that are available to the reader. Preference should be given to recent publications in journals.
How to cite
The brief textual citation, of less than five lines, is inserted within the text between quotation marks, and the corresponding number is placed at the end, after the quotation marks and before the punctuation mark.
“A bibliographic citation is a very abbreviated expression of a bibliographic reference inserted in the text which refers to it and adopts different notations depending on the system or style used (Harvard, AMA, Vancouver). Bibliographic citations are located within the text or at the foot of the pages” (1).
Author citations: “The citations of an author can be made by a number or by integrating the author's name followed by a number in the text. When an author is mentioned in the text, the reference number is placed after the author's name. If the author is not named, the number will appear at the end of the sentence”(2).
Example: Watkins and Marsick (1, 2) provided an integrative model of a learning organization.
• The names of the authors, publishers, etc., must appear as follows: Surname First letter of the name: Santos A.
• If an author is used to using his two surnames, they must be joined with a hyphen: Vilaragut-Llanes M.
• If an author uses two first names (compound names), their initials must be joined: Filgueiras-Sainz de Rozas ML
They must be written with Arabic numerals in brackets, example: , [1, 5, 12]. If specific parts of a document are cited, the pages can be indicated, example: (2 p. 57), if several consecutive references are cited: [2-6].
Do not support a claim with more than three citations, such as: [2, 4, 7, 10, 12, 15].
The references are written with all their main data, including the normalizing identifier: ISSN and ISBN, or the DOI.
DOI: digital object identifier, known in English as digital object identifier and abbreviated DOI, which is nothing more than a permanent link in the form of an alphanumeric code that uniquely identifies an electronic content. In the format: https://dx.doi.org/##.####&######.##
DOI directory: https://dx.doi.org/
A suffix identifying the publisher
A suffix that identifies the digital object (it has a variable structure, depending on the publisher)
The reference to a document on the Internet must show the full URL and the date it was consulted.
Do not write www.site.org/article/rodamiento.pdf, but, http://www.site.org/article/rodamiento.pdf
Example: ...[Accessed December 2011]. Available at: http://www.icdd.com/V40_083.pdf
The names and surnames of the authors are written inverted, separated by commas, the names with their initials, example: Buroni, F. C.,
if there are more than 2 authors and up to 3, Gang, D. and Tsutomu, N. E.
if there are more than 3 authors: Ashman, B.; et al.
