Paper Formatting: Authors are suggested to use appropriate templates before they make a submission. PHM Society has a strict policy on manuscript formatting before they can be published in the proceedings or the journal archives. Since IJPHM does not have a separate publishing department we rely solely on authors and reviewers to make sure papers are ready for publication in the archives. Therefore, reviewers are asked to comment on paper formatting in addition to reviewing the technical content. Manuscripts not adhering to proper format may be retuned back and result in additional delays.

Page Limits: PHM Society does not impose any hard limits on the number of pages in a paper. It is left to the authors to determine what length is the right length for their paper to convey the technical details. Unnecessarily long or short papers usually do not get a positive response from reviewers and readers in general. Therefore, as a guideline it is recommended to keep conference papers within 6-10 page limits, journal full papers within 10-15 pages, technical briefs 4-6 pages, and journal communications 2-4 pages. Minor deviations from these suggested limits are normal.
