Instructions for Authors

Please use the template when preparing your article

Manuscripts should be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript through the online Editorial System, click on Submit your paper. Regardless of the source of the word-processing tool, not formatted text (.doc or .docx files) can be submitted through the Editorial System. Only online submissions are accepted to facilitate rapid publication and minimize administrative costs. Submissions by anyone other than one of the authors will not be accepted. The submitting author takes responsibility for the paper during submission and peer review. If for some technical reason submission through the Panel is not possible, the author can contact to Editorial Office for support.

Terms of Submission
Papers must be submitted on the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere and are not currently under consideration by another journal published by any other publisher. The submitting author is responsible for ensuring that the article's publication has been approved by all the other coauthors. It is also the authors' responsibility to ensure that the articles emanating from a particular institution are submitted with the approval of the necessary institution. Only an acknowledgement from the editorial office officially establishes the date of receipt. Further correspondence and proofs will be sent to the author(s) before publication unless otherwise indicated. It is a condition of submission of a paper that the authors permit editing of the paper for readability.

Only one publication of the same Author or team of Authors may be included in one issue of a journal. In case of submitting several publications at once – all will be rejected immediately. The next publication of the Author(s) should be submitted no sooner than after the previous one was finalized. We also do not publish the article as subsequent parts.
Only two articles from this same Author (team of Authors) can be published in one Volume (year).

The journal publishes the original research or review papers.
We do not accept for publication questionnaire-based research or surveys analysis as well.

iThenticate Service
After the submission of your paper, we check the iThenticate similarity test for plagiarism detection. The overall similarity (Similarity Index) must not exceed the limit 25%, and the single paper similarity must not exceed the limit of 5%. Otherwise, the paper will be directly rejected by the editor and no other chance will be given to the author(s) to re-submit it.

The Content of the Article
The paper should be prepared according to the following order:
  • Title
  • Full author name (Name and Surname, not initials)
  • Affiliation (full institutional mailing address – eg. Department, University, Street, Postal Code, City, Country and Email)
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • The main text
  • Acknowledgements
  • References

  • The text body should not be formatted, for example, splitting in columns, adding headers and footers is forbidden.
    Nomenclature or abbreviations list is not needed – all explanations should be placed in the text.
    Recommendation section is not allowed.

    The Volume of the Article
    The volume of the article (including tables and illustrations) should not exceed 20 pages of A4 format (included in the fee).
    Placing longer publication requires approval by the Editors, and pay an additional fee.

    Peer Review
    All manuscripts are subject to peer review and are expected to meet standards of academic excellence. Submissions will be considered by an editor and “if not rejected right away” by peer-reviewers, whose identities will remain anonymous to the authors.

    Units of Measurement
    Units of measurement should be presented simply and concisely using System International (SI) units.

    The manuscript should contain an abstract. The abstract should be self-contained, citation-free and should not exceed 360 words (a total of about 200 words is recommended). The abstract is posted on the website as a separate work. It should contain all the essential information about the paper: the aim of the work, materials and methods (research methodology), obtained results and main findings. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or references.

    All acknowledgements (if any) should be included at the very end of the paper before the references and may include supporting grants, presentations, and so forth.

    Authors are responsible for ensuring that the information in each reference is complete and accurate, according to the Vancouver citation style. References must be numbered in order of appearance in the text. Citations of references in text should be identified using numbers in square brackets (e.g., “as discussed by Brown [1]”; “as discussed elsewhere [1, 2]”). All references should be cited in the text. Multiple citations should be avoided, by limiting to a maximum of two items in one sentence.

    Preparation of Figures
    Each figure should be supplied in a separate electronic file in bitmap formats (TIFF, GIF, JPEG, etc.). Bitmap images should be of 300 dpi resolution. We prefer coloured images instead of black and white.
    All figures must be numbered in the order in which they appear in the manuscript (e.g. Figure 1, Figure 2). In multi-part figures, each part should be labelled (e.g. Figure 1a, Figure 1b).
    Figure captions must be saved as part of the complete text of the manuscript.

    Preparation of Tables
    Tables should be cited consecutively in the text. Every table must have a descriptive title and if numerical measurements are given, the units should be included in the column heading.

    Corrected proofs must be returned to the publisher within 2-3 days of receipt. The publisher will do everything possible to ensure prompt publication. It will therefore be appreciated if the manuscripts and figures conform from the outset to the style of the journal.

    Open Access authors retain the copyrights of their papers, and all open access articles are distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution license, which permits unrestricted use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited.

    Disclosure Policy
    A competing interest exists when professional judgment concerning the validity of research is influenced by a secondary interest, such as financial gain. We require that our authors reveal all possible conflicts of interest in their submitted manuscripts.

    The Editor reserves the right to shorten and adjustment texts. Significant changes in the text will be agreed with the Authors.
