NIMA Guidelines

The Elsevier Editorial System is ready for article submission for the SORMA conference papers.

The presenter of the work at SORMA must be the first author on the submitted manuscript or the manuscript will not be processed.

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, July 31, 2018 to meet the publisher's deadline.

Instructions for submission:

  • The submission website for this journal is located at:
  • To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion into the special issue you are editing, it is important that you select ‘SI: NIMA_SORMA XVII‘ when you reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process.
  • Your manuscript should reflect completed work and thus longer submissions are warranted. We are expecting manuscripts 5-8 printed pages in length, typical of a regular NIMA article. You can find the Guide for Authors at
  • The manuscript must have line numbers, single column, and double spaced. Figures can be placed inline for the convenience of the reviewer, but full-sized figures and tables should be attached for the publisher.
  • Proper English is absolutely essential. This is the responsibility of the author, and is the primary reason that NIMA manuscripts are rejected. Because of the tight publication schedule, we do not have time to iterate. If the English does not read like a native English speaker, your manuscript will not be considered further.
  • NIMA publishes hardcopy in black and white, and in color online. You can use color figures that will print acceptably in black and white (use different symbol and dash shapes on plots) and include the words “color online”.
  • It is essential to include a complete reference list that recognizes the contributions from earlier work in your field. Include references to your prior work only very sparingly, i.e., self-citations are discouraged except when essential.
  • Emphasize the novelty, the relevance, and the importance of your work. NIMA only publishes work that is new and important to our community. By emphasizing these points, without exaggeration, a reader is more likely to deem the manuscript worthy of publication.
