  1. Abstract must be 200-250 words (scope, purpose, research design, highlights of results and major conclusions). Maximum of five (5) keywords should be provided and it should have the name(s) of the presenter(s), work title(s), and the university/organization where the researcher/s is/are representing.
  2. Biographical sketch of the presenter of not more than one (1) page must be submitted through the official email address: isteam@evsu.edu.ph of the congress.
  3. Times New Roman style, font size of 12, and single space format must be applied in preparing the abstract and biographical sketch in a short bond paper (8.5” x 11”).

Full Paper

  1. Manuscript should be typed double-spaced throughout the paper with 1-inch margin on all sides, using Times New Roman, font size 12 and arranged as follows: Title, Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgments and References. All pages must be numbered consecutively. Follow the American Psychological Association (APA) style manual in preparing the manuscript. The length of the manuscript should not exceed 7,000 words.
  2. Below is the format of the manuscript:
    1. Title. Make sure that the title is concise and descriptive. The title is followed by the names of the author(s), affiliations, complete postal addresses and e-mail information. If there is more than one author, the corresponding author who will handle correspondence should be addressed at all stages of refereeing and publication, including post-publication, should be clearly indicated.
    2. Abstract. The abstract should be concise and factual with a maximum of 250 words. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the methods employed and principal results and major conclusions.
    3. Keywords. Immediately after the abstract, provide 3-4 keywords indicating the scope of the paper.
    4. Introduction. The introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem and should include sufficient background information to set the work in context. It should state the objectives of the study and provide discussion of related literature.
    5. Methods. This should be concise but provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be replicated by others. However, only truly new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited, and important modification of published procedures should be mentioned briefly.
    6. Results and Discussion. Results should be presented in a logical sequence. Tables, graphs, illustrations and photographs may be used to improve clarity. Discuss the results to provide descriptions and explanations of observed phenomena, trends, optimized values and other information that illustrate how these results relate to findings of previous works.
    7. Conclusions. Present in the conclusion the generalizations and important contributions of the work.
    8. Acknowledgments (optional). Place the acknowledgment in a separate paragraph at the end of the text, immediately before the list of references. Limit the acknowledgment to the organization that provided financial support and access to laboratory facilities.
    9. References. Follow the sixth (6th) edition of the American Psychological Association (APA) Style Manual. List all works cited in the manuscript in the reference section.
  3. Tables, graphs, illustrations and photographs should be self-contained and must complement, but not duplicate, information contained in the text. In preparing the manuscript, embed the tables and figures into the text. Illustrations and photographs should have an image resolution of at least 300 DPI (Dots per inch). Figures should be in an acceptable format (JPEG, JPG, PNG) and be of high quality. Each figure should have a caption, comprising a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Text in the illustrations should be kept to a minimum.
  4. Equations should be justified to the left margin and numbered consecutively, e.g., (1), (2), etc., at the right margin, and thus can be referred to as such in the text. Provide meaning to all symbols used.
  5. SI units (meter, kilogram etc.), as outlined in the latest edition of Units, Symbols and Abbreviations: A Guide for Medical and Scientific Editors and Authors (Royal Society of Medicine Press, London), should be used wherever possible. Statistics and measurements should always be given in figures; that is, 10 mm, except where the number begins the sentence. When the number does not refer to a unit measurement, it is spelt out, except when the number is greater than nine. Use only the standard abbreviation.

Oral Presentation

  1. Each paper shall be presented in 15 minutes only. Five (5) minutes shall be allotted for the questions of the judges and another five minutes for the audience’s questions after the presentation. To help the presenter manage his time during the presentation, the moderator shall raise a card with the following reminders:
    • 5 minutes
    • 2 minutes
    • 1 minute
  2. A paper may be presented by two researchers in the case of multiple authorship.
  3. The PowerPoint Presentation (PPT) is a presentation of powerful points. So, avoid long texts on a single slide or several graphics that distract your audience. Limit text colors to less than 5 in each slide.
  4. Observe the following guidelines in the preparation of the Powerpoint presentation.

      Slide 1: Title page: Title of the presentation; author/s and highest degree/s; your institution and address; the event (5th ISTEAM Research Congress), venue, place, and dates
