Guide for Authors

 Journal Template

It is essential that you prepare your manuscript according to the journal's format and style specifications. Please read through the Journal Template carefully before preparing your manuscript for submission. You can find the template file here.

 Abstract

A concise and factual abstract is required maximum length 200 words. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself. Typeset the abstract in 10 pt Times Roman with line spacing of 12 pt.

Title

Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lowercase superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name.

Corresponding author

Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. This responsibility includes answering any future queries about Methodology and Materials. Ensure that the e-mail address is given and that contact details are kept up to date by the corresponding author.

Keywords

Provide a minimum 3 keywords and a maximum of 4 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts.
