Guide for Authors
The manuscripts must be clearly written in English. The incorrect use of the language is not admissible. It is strongly recommended to limit the length of a manuscript to less than 15 pages.
Title page (page 1). The top of the title page should contain the names of all authors and the manuscript title. The abstract should be a single paragraph of less than 150 words summarizing the main findings of the paper. An abstract is often presented separately, so any references to numbered items in the paper or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided. After the abstract a list of up to 5 keywords that will be useful for indexing or searching.
Sections. An article should be divided into numbered sections and subsections (1.1, 1.2, etc.). Any subsection may be given a brief heading.
Equations. Equations should be in Equation Editor and the numbers for displayed equations should be placed in parentheses at the right margin. References to equations should use the form ”equation (1)” or simply ”(1)”.
Figures. Figures must be prepared in a form suitable for direct reproduction. If complicated figures or diagrams are used, the corresponding graphic files should be included. Digital artwork of at least 300 dpi resolution is accepted. Please note that each figure must be referenced in the text (Fig. 1).
Acknowledgements. Acknowledgements, if any, should be placed before the references.
References. The author should use the numbering style of referencing . References should be arranged in the order of citation. The following general rules also apply:
– in the title of a work (book, chapter, paper, conference presentation), the first letter of the first word of the title should be capitalised,
– the title of a work (book, chapter, paper, conference presentation) should be written in an italic style,
– if there are several references to bibliography, it should save them as follows [1–4, 10],
– all papers or books titles should be into original language.
Every reference cited in the text must appear in the reference list and vice versa.
