Title: Centralized, should be clear and concise, allowing prompt identification of the content of the study, trying to avoid words like: analysis, study and evaluation.
Abstract: The text should start on the same line of the item, be clear, succinct and mandatorily explain the intended objectives, trying to justify its importance (not including references), the main procedures adopted, the most significant results and conclusions, containing a maximum of 14 lines. Below should appear the keywords (six at most, trying not repeating the title) written in lowercase.
Introduction: Should be concise, in at most 50 lines, using recent literature (preferably peer reviewed articles published over last 5 years) and appropriate to formulate the problems addressed and the justification of the importance of the subject, making very clear the objective of the study.
Material and methods: Depending on the nature of the study, a characterization of the experimental area must be inserted, making clear the conditions under which the research was conducted. When the public domain methods are used only the reference will be sufficient, otherwise is required description of the procedures used, adjustments promoted, etc. Measurement units and symbols should follow the International System.
Results and discussion: The results should be compared with those of the literature presented in the Introduction and with others pertinent to the field of work, and discussed in the light of established knowledge, agreeing or disagreeing with scientific or technical explanations, but highlighting the importance and originality of such data. The wording of this item should be elaborated not only by reporting that the results obtained agree with or disagree with the results obtained by other researchers, but also, in a clear and concise way, seek to explain why the results were those and why they agree or disagree with the results presented in the literature
Conclusions: These should be based exclusively on the results of the study. Avoid repetition of results in subsequent listing, confronting what was obtained with the goals initially set. The conclusions should be written to facilitate interpretation of the article, without consulting other items of it.
Acknowledgments: Enter it, if any, after conclusions, succinctly.

Exceptional cases should be justified and will be reviewed by the Editorial Committee. The references in the text must also appear in capital letters, followed by the date:
Souza & Silva (2005), or (Souza & Silva, 2005); existing other references of the same author in the same year (other publications), it will be identified with lowercase letters (a, b, c) after the year of publication: Souza & Silva (2005 a). For three or more authors, in the text will be quoted only the first author followed by et al., but in the final bibliography list other names should also appear. In quotation from quotation (to be avoided), identifies the directly consulted article, the author and / or the article mentioned in it as indicated: Silva (2000) cited by Pessoa (2006).

They must be numbered in consecutive Arabic numerals. Tables: avoid extensive tables and unessential data, privileging average data; adapt their sizes to the usable space of the paper and place, wherever possible, only continuous horizontal lines, their captions should be concise and self-explanatory and should also display the title in English. Photographs: can be colored. In the discussion, compare the results with the data obtained in the Bibliography.
Equations: All equations that are part of the text should be aligned with the paragraph and numbered as follows:

Conclusions: When appropriate, should be written in a clear and concise manner, consistent with the goal established. Should not be a simple resubmission of other paragraphs of the article.
3.2.3. Review Article: It is the presentation, exclusively by a request of the Editorial Committee, of a study by gathering, analyzing and discussing an issue of importance to the Agricultural Engineering, and based on extensive literature search, allowing compilation of existing knowledge. Although with more stylistic freedom than in scientific articles, review articles should contain the following items: Title, Author(s), Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Review, Conclusions and References. The writing of these items should follow the same guidelines described for scientific articles, with the following particular remarks:
