All mathematical equations must be written in Microsoft Word Equation Editor. This file must contain graphs and figures; additionally, they must be sent in a modifiable format file (soft copy). Also, abbreviations and acronyms have to be defined the first time they appear in the text.


All articles must contain the following elements that must appear in the following order:

It must be concise (no more than 25 words) with appropriate words to give readers a good idea of the contents. It must be sent in English and Spanish language.

Likewise, it must be organized in a logical sequence of parts or sections, with clear subtitles to guide readers. The first part of the document is the introduction.

All of these elements must be numbered in order of appearance according to their type and must have at the foot, that is, exactly beneath the chart, graph, or picture the source from where data was taken and who made it.

Equations must be numbered on the right hand side of column containing it, in the same line and in parenthesis. The body of the text must refer to it as “(Equation x)”. When the reference starts a sentence it must be made as follows: “Equation x”.

Equations must be written so that capital letters can be clearly differentiated from small letters. Avoid confusions between letter “l” and number one or between zero and small letter “o”. All sub-indexes, super-indexes, Greek letters, and other symbols must be clearly indicated.

All expressions and mathematical analyses must explain all symbols (and units of measure) that have not been previously defined in the nomenclature. If the work is extremely mathematical in nature, it would be advisable to develop equations and formulas in appendixes instead of including them in the body of the text.

Figure/Fig. (lineal drawings, tables, pictures, figure, etc.) must be numbered according to order of appearance and should include the number of graph in parenthesis and a brief description. As with equations, in the body of the text, reference as “(Fig. X)”, and when reference to a graph is the beginning of a sentence it must be made as follows: “Fig. x”.

Charts, graphs, and illustrations must be sent in modifiable vector file format (Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Power Period, and/or Microsoft Visio). Pictures must be sent in TIF or JPG format files, separate from the main document in a resolution higher than 1000 dpi.

The bibliographic references must be included at the end of the article in alphabetical order and shall be identified across the document. For the citation of references use ISO 690 standards, which specify the mandatory elements to cite references (monographs, serials, chapters, articles, and patents), and ISO 690-2 related to the citation of electronic documents.

  • Quotations

They must be made in two ways: at the end of text, in which case last name of author followed by a comma and year of publication in the following manner:

“Methods exist today by which carbon fibers and prepregs can be recycled, and the resulting recyclate retains up to 90% of the fibers’ mechanical properties” (Davidson, 2006).

The other way is:

Davidson (2006) manifests that “Methods exist today by which carbon fibers and prepregs can be recycled, and the resulting recyclate retains up to 90% of the fibers’ mechanical properties”.

  • List of References

Bibliographic references of original sources for cited material must be cited at the end of article in alphabetical order and according to following parameters:

In the event of more than one author, separate by commas and the last one by an “and”. If there are more than three authors write the last name and initials of first author and then the abbreviation “et al.,”.
