《先进仪器与器件（英文）》（Advanced Devices & Instrumentation）投稿须知
To check on the status of your submission, please visit Advanced Devices & Instrumentation’s manuscript submission site.
For general guidance on using the manuscript submission system, please read the tutorials for Authors, Editors, and Reviewers. For questions on specific functionality, explore the Editorial Manager video library.
Categories of Manuscripts
The journal Advanced Devices & Instrumentation accepts submissions for original research articles, review articles, perspectives and editorials. Prior to submission, each author should review and be prepared to fulfill the submission requirements outlined in the Publication Ethics page and comply with following limitations.
Research articles should present a major advance and must include an abstract of up to 250 words, an introduction and sections with brief and informative subheadings. Authors may include up to ten figures and/or tables and about 60 references. Total research article length should be under 15,000 words. Supplementary materials should be limited to information that is not essential for the general understanding of the research presented in the main text and can include data sets, figures, tables, videos or audio files. Please see the submission requirements for research articles in the following section. For ease in preparing your submission, please follow the manuscript templates in Word and LaTex.
Review articles should describe and synthesize recent developments of interdisciplinary significance and highlight future directions. Reviews must include an abstract, an introduction that outlines the main theme, brief subheadings and an outline of important unresolved questions. Reviews should be no longer than 8,000 words, although longer manuscripts will be considered. Authors may include up to six figures and/or tables and up to 100 references. Most reviews are solicited by the editors. Unsolicited submissions will be considered, and authors are encouraged to contact the Editors first before writing a review paper.
Perspectives highlight recent exciting research, but do not primarily discuss the author’s own work. They may provide context for the findings within a field or explain potential interdisciplinary importance. Perspectives that comment on papers in Advanced Devices & Instrumentation should add a dimension to the research and not merely be a summary of the experiments described in the paper. As these are meant to express a personal viewpoint, with rare exceptions, Perspectives should have no more than two authors. Perspectives should include an abstract and have no more than 1,000 words and one figure or table.
Editorials are short, invited opinion pieces that discuss an issue of immediate importance to the research community. Editorials should have fewer than 1,000 words total, no abstract, a minimal number of references (no more than five) and no figures or tables. Editorials are only solicited by the editors.

English Language Editing Services
Interested in English language assistance prior to submission? The Science Partner Journals publishing team has evaluated the work of the companies listed on the SPJ Author Services page and found their services to be effective for editing scientific English language in manuscripts prior to submission.
Experimental Design and Statistics Guidelines
Study Design Guidelines
In the first section of the Materials and Methods, we encourage authors to have first subtitle of "Experimental and Technical Design," which includes a diagram or flowchart to show the entire experimental design and illustrates the most significant elements: materials, treatments, measurements, data collection, methods of data analysis. This will facilitate the editors, reviewers and readers to understand and follow the whole concept, design, and results.
Statistical Analysis Guidelines
Generally, authors should describe statistical methods with enough detail to enable a knowledgeable reader with access to the original data to verify the results.
Authors are encouraged to follow published standard reporting guidelines for the study discipline. Many of these guidelines can be found at the EQUATOR website.
Figure, Table, & Supplementary Material Guidelines
Creating Your Figures
It is best to create your figures as vector-based files such as those produced by Adobe Illustrator. Vector-based files will give us maximum flexibility for sizing your figures properly without losing resolution. These figure files can be saved at a lower resolution to minimize the file size at initial submission.
Although we do not need the highest-resolution files for the initial submission, you will need to have these high-resolution files of your figures on hand so that they can be submitted with your revised manuscript for final publication production. Each figure or image must be in a separate editable file format at revision. Images may be in TIFF, GIF, JPEG, PNG, BMP, PS, EPS, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or PDF.
Figure Layout and Scaling
In laying out information in a figure, the objective is to maximize the space given to presentation of the data. Avoid wasted white space and clutter.
Please follow these guidelines for your figures:
The figure’s title should be at the beginning of the figure legend, not within the figure itself.
Include the figure’s identifying number (e.g., "Figure 1") on the same manuscript page that includes the figure.
Keys to symbols, if needed, should be kept as simple as possible. Details can be put into the figure legend.
Use solid symbols for plotting data if possible (unless data overlap or there are multiple symbols). For legibility when figures are reduced, symbol sizes should be a minimum of 6 points and line widths should be a minimum of 0.5 points.
Panels should be set close to each other and common axis labels should not be repeated.
Scales or axes should not extend beyond the range of the data plotted. All microscopic images should include scale bars, with their values shown either with the bar or in the figure legend. Do not use minor tick marks in scales or grid lines. Avoid using y-axis labels on the right that repeat those on the left.
Color-mix and Contrast Considerations
Avoid using red and green together. Color-blind individuals will not be able to read the figure.
Do not use colors that are close to each other in hue to identify different parts of a figure.
Avoid using grayscale.
Use white type and scale bars over darker areas of images.
