39(2nd page)
42The paper abstract should be informative and it should briefly present the topic of the
43papers, the state and aims, significant data from study and the major conclusions. The abstract
44should have 100 to 200 words in length. Complete sentences, active verbs, third person and a
45past tense should be used in the abstract writing. Standard nomenclature should be used; also
46abbreviations and citations should not be used.
48Keywords: 3 to 10 keywords have to follow the abstract for indexing purposes. It is
49recommended to choose as keywords other words than those contained in the title but without
50leaving out the obvious ones.
51(3rd page to end of paper, in sequential order)
56The introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem, the citation of most
57relevant literature to the work and the study objectives. The introduction should be
58understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific domains. It must not include
59description of processes, procedures, or mathematical expressions that are readily available in
60textbooks or review papers.
61The introduction section should emphasize on the originality of work and how it contributes
62to new information. It should not exceed 3-4 paragraphs (one to two pages maximum), it
63should conclude with a list of key objectives of the reported work, and it should not describe
64or outline other sections of the manuscript.
67Materials and methods
69Materials and methods should be complete enough to allow case studies to be reproduced.
70Trade names and manufacturer’s name have to be indicated.
71Known working methods have only to be mentioned and sources cited. Also, only genuinely
72new procedures designed by authors and important changes should be shortly described
73and/or presented. Experimental design should include a quantitative discussion of the
74experimental uncertainty. If statistical software is used, then the name and version of the
75software has to be provided.
76All equations should be written using the Word Equations Editor and sequentially numbered.
77All variables used in the manuscript should be fully defined in a nomenclature section at the
78end of the paper.
81Results and discussion
83The results have to be presented clearly and precisely using figures and tables as needed.
84They should be written in the past tense and the previously published data should be written
85in the present tense following the right citations.
86The same data should not be presented in both table and graph form or repeated in the text.
87The results have to be compared to those previously reported, and clearly indicate what new
88information is contributed by the present study. The results should be explained, analysed and
89discussed to allow the partial and final conclusions statement.
90This chapter may include subheadings, named and numbered accordingly.
95The conclusions should be stated in few sentences and without references at the end of the
96paper. It is recommended that they should not be a reproduction of the abstract’s final part.
102The list of references should be presented alphabetically, by the first author and without
103numbering. All the references should / must be cited in the paper.
104Only necessary publications has to be cited and primary rather than secondary references has
105to be used when possible. It is acceptable to cite work that is “forthcoming” (that is, accepted
106but not published) with the pertinent year and volume number of the reference. Works that
107are “submitted” and under review are not to be cited.
108Up-to-dateness references are recommended.
109References have to be written in their original language (title’s translation in English could
110follow in parenthesis) with all last name(s) and initial(s) first name(s) of all authors to a
111maximum of seven. For more authors ”et al.” should be used.
112When more citations of the same first author are used, the arrangement is done by the
113publication’s year. If there are more citations of the same author and the same year, the
114notation a, b etc. should be used. Two or more publications of different authors are cited in
115chronological sequence, from earliest to latest.
116Abbreviation of journal titles will follow the international standards.
121The financial support of the research/study – programme, grant, fellowship – should be
123Acknowledgements should be addressed (if it is the case) to significant contributors, but not
124authors, to a laboratory / institution which allowed the experiments etc.
129Not usually needed; can be added if necessary.
134Not usually needed; can be added if necessary
139The tables should be kept to minimum and be designed as simple as possible, edited in Word
140directly into the paper, not imported from elsewhere.
141The tables should be numbered with Arabic numerals. The number should be followed by a
142brief description of the content, no more than two lines, at the head of the table. Each column
143should have a heading and the corresponding measurement unit. Supplementary descriptions
144should be added at the bottom of the table, if necessary.
145The tables should be presented at the end of the paper, in order by the number, each table on
146one page (the editors will introduce the table in the text after the first citation when
147processing the manuscript accepted for publication).
149Figures (graphs, charts, line drawings, photographs)
151The figures have to be clear, and the points presenting the data should be well emphasized.
152The figures should be numbered with Arabic numerals, followed by a short description, both
153below the figure. They should be accompanied by a legend with explanations (point’s
154symbols, series symbols etc.).
155Unsatisfactory figures will be returned to authors for revision.
156Graphics should be edited in English using applications capable of generating high resolution
157GIFF, TIFF, JPEG or Power Point before pasting in the Microsoft Word manuscript file.
158Photographs should be clear and have good quality prints or high contrasts.
159Figures, both graphics and photographs, should be prepared black and white for the printed
160Journal. They could be sent in colour form for the web page, if authors agree with the
161publication of the entire work on the Journal web page.
