AUTHORS' INFORMATION

Aim and Scope
The Premier Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences publishes high quality articles concentrating on all aspects of Engineering and Applied Sciences. All manuscripts will be blindly peer-reviewed by two reviewers. If a manuscript is adjudged suitable, it will be published as either a Research Paper, Review Paper or a Technical Note.

Manuscript Submission
Authors should send the soft copy of their manuscript directly to the journal through the email address editorpjeas@gmail.com. Submission of manuscript is on the condition that it is an original work of the author(s) and it has neither been published previously nor currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Manuscript Preparation
Manuscript should be written in English Language and typed in 11 point font size using Times New Roman in single spacing on A4 paper. A margin of 25 mm should be left at the sides. The paper should not exceed fifteen (15) pages, including figures and tables.

The manuscript should be organised under the following headings:


Title Page
The title page should contain the title of the article, authors’ contact details such as names, institutional affiliations and corresponding author’s email address. The page is also to contain the abstract, three or five keywords and may include the Introduction Section, etc. The abstract should not normally exceed 300 words in 11 point font size.


Introduction
Under this section, introduce the problem, significance of the research, justification of the study, objectives and brief review of relevant literature.

Methodology
This section should describe in detail the procedure used in conducting the study, including conceptual and operational definitions of the variables used in the study. It should be presented in simple clear terms in such a way that anyone can replicate the study using the reported methods. Subsections may be used and labelled accordingly. Full information (including model, specification, country of production) of all equipment used should also be clearly stated. The statistical package and software used for data analysis must be clearly stated with the version used. The text size of formula should be similar with normal text size. The formula should be placed in the middle and serial number on the right and must be presented using Equation editor. Also, values should be given to all equations presented in the manuscript.

Results and Discussion
In this section, author(s) should present the findings obtained from the collected data and the analysis performed on those data relevant to the discourse that is to follow. Report the data in sufficient detail to justify your conclusions. Mention all relevant results, including those that run counter to expectation; be sure to include small effect sizes (or statistically non-significant findings) when theory predicts large (or statistically significant) ones. Do not hide uncomfortable results by omission.

Conclusion
This should be brief and give a summary of the study in simple clear terms, there is no need to repeat and duplicate the findings earlier reported.

Acknowledgment
Authors should appreciate all funding agencies and everyone who contributed to the research and the manuscript.

References
All references to publications made should be cited at the appropriate position in the text and should appear at the end of the manuscript under a main heading (References). References should be listed alphabetically in the reference list. In the text, references should be indicated by author(s) surname(s) and year of publication (e.g. Agbede (1992); (Agbede and Ajagbe, 2004); (Tijani et al., 2019).
