Article Types

The Bulletin of Faculty of Engineering Journal accepts and publishes the following article types: Review Articles, Original Research Articles, and Case Studies.

Review Articles:

A review article is an article that summarizes the current state of understanding on a topic comprehensively. It analyzes or discusses research previously published by others.

Original Research Articles:

An original Research Article is an article that produces new knowledge based on novel research. 

Case Studies:

Case Studies present specific illustrations of specific case or cases.

Peer Review Process

The Bulletin of Faculty of Engineering Journal is devoted to peer-review integrity with the highest standards of review. Each received manuscript is initially evaluated for suitability to the journal by the editor. Then it is double-blind peer-reviewed by independent, anonymous reviewers. All papers are evaluated by at least two referees, who are experts in their fields. 

Article Preparation

Article Structure

Your article should be compiled in the following order: title page; abstract; keywords; introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion; acknowledgments; references; appendices (if applicable); table(s) and figure(s).

Title Page

The title page should have the article title, author names and affiliations, and the corresponding author. Title: should be informative as well as concise. Abbreviations should be avoided in the titles.

Author names and affiliations: should be provided in the title page with the right order of the authors according to their contribution in the article. Present the authors' affiliation addresses in a footnote . Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name, and the e-mail address of each author.

Corresponding author:It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to handle all correspondence during refereeing, publication as well as after-publication. E-mail address, the complete postal address, and telephone number of the corresponding author should be provided.  

Present/permanent address: If an author has moved since the work presented in the article was done, or was visiting at the time, a "Present address" (or "Permanent address") may be indicated as a footnote to that author's name. The address at which the author actually did the work must be retained as the main, affiliation address.


The abstract must be structured to briefly describe the research objective, research methods, main results and the main finding conclusions. Please avoid citing references and minimize the use of abbreviations in the abstract. The length should not be more than 250 words for Review and Original Articles and not more than 150 words for Case Studies.


The authors must provide between three and six keywords, which must not be part of the title of the paper.


State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

Materials and Methods

Provide enough details that allow other researchers to reproduce the research work. Any already published methods should be referenced. Only relevant modifications should be described.


The results of the research article should be presented in a clear and concise manner.


This part should present the significance of the results of the research work, not repeat them. The results and discussion sections may also be combined in one section.


The main conclusions of the study are presented in a concise manner and can be accompanied by a short summary of the conducted research. A section that provides the study limitations may also be presented.


 If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on.


Dedicate a separate part for acknowledgments at the end of the article before the references to acknowledge any persons or agencies who provided help during the research.
