Scope and policy
The 'Production' journal aims to foster knowledge and its dissemination in the production engineering field through publishing relevant articles produced by this scientific community.
Submitted manuscripts must include original contributions both in development of the conceptual/theoretical framework and empirical research results supported by innovative methodologies. Manuscripts cannot have been accepted for publication (or have been published) by other periodicals or be under evaluation for publication through any other means.
The 'Production' journal only accepts manuscripts in English.
Manuscript evaluation process
The evaluation process for manuscripts submitted to the 'Production' journal comprises the following steps:
Manuscript submission implies that its publication has been approved by all coauthors, if applicable, and the responsible authorities of the institution where the study/research was performed (by signing a term of publishing rights).
Authors are responsible for the manuscript content published in the journal, which must comply with the 'Production' journal Ethics Statement on copyright and ethical principles. The 'Production' journal does not take legal responsibility for errors or omissions, which may be identified before or after publication.

Authors and affiliations shall not be included in the manuscript file to ensure a double blind review. Additionally, all properties shall be removed from the uploaded manuscripts.Manuscript highlights

The title should be concise but informative and should not contain more than 15 words.
The abstract should present the research purpose, methodological procedures and conclusions without exceeding 150 words.
Keywords should always be provided without repeating terms in the title. It is mandatory to include between three to five keywords per manuscript.Organization of topics
All Sections and Sub-sections should be numbered beginning with the Introduction.File Format
Manuscripts should be created using the word processor MS Word 2007 or a later version.

The names of products and equipment must include the trademark symbol (®) and information on the manufacturer name, city and country.
Footnotes are not accepted in this periodical and should always be directly incorporated in the text body.
Please note: In English manuscripts, the decimals must be separated by points/dots (not commas).Diagrams, charts, tables and equations
Diagrams and graphs should always be prepared and referenced as figures. Charts should always be prepared and referenced as tables.
Tables should be compiled using the table resources in MS Word whenever possible. Elements sent as images will not be accepted and will result in delayed evaluation and publication. The elements shall be numbered sequentially, present the title, source and referenced in the manuscript. We will not accept items that are not properly cited in the text and vice versa.
Equations should always be revised, without error and sequentially numbered where necessary.Figures and Illustrations
Images, figures and photographs should always be produced 2000 pixels wide independent of the file resolution. Additionally, it is mandatory and important to verify that the smallest text in each figure is legible after insertion in an MS Word file. The figures and illustrations shall display a caption and source as well as be referenced in the article. We will not accept figures that are not properly cited in the text and vice versa.References

The reference list should be elaborated first alphabetically and then by chronological order, if necessary. Multiple references of the same author in the same year must be identified by letters ('a', 'b' and 'c', etc.) placed after the year of publication.
Text citations should be as follows: Author-Year: directly, "Tu & Cheng (1998)"; or indirectly, "(Tu & Cheng, 1998)" etc.
