Download Guidelines for Authors
The journal considers all manuscripts on the strict condition that they have been submitted only to it; that they neither have been published yet, nor they are under consideration for publication or in press elsewhere. It should be clearly indicated if a submission was previously declined by another journal.
If there are several authors, they make a decision themselves concerning the order of their mentioning in the title of the paper (recommended variant – depending on the contribution to the research). Due to the Journals policy, maximum number of authors is 5 (five). The list of authors includes only those persons who have really taken part in the research and agreed to bear full responsibility for its content. Research funding or taking part in paying the article processing charge is not a prerequisite for being included in the list of co-authors. While forming the list of the authors, a special attention should be paid to the COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) principles.
Structure of the article
An article should include the following parts: title, authors’ names, name and address of their work place, abstract, keywords, introduction, the main text, conclusions or recommendations, references, short biographical note about the contributors at the end of the article.
Use IMRAD Style
Introduction – State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
Write section Introduction in three section:
- What is known
- What is not known
- Why we did this study
Materials and Methods – Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.
Results – Results should be clear and concise.
Discussions – State what you found. This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
Conclusions - The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.
