Guide for authors


Manuscript Submission


Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities at the institute where the work has been carried out. Articles are subjected to review by referees and must be well written in English. Please use translations when quoting sources in languages other than English.


Permissions


Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.


Online Submission


Authors should submit their manuscripts online. Electronic submission substantially reduces the editorial processing and reviewing times and shortens overall publication times. Please follow the hyperlink “New Submission” on the right and upload all of your manuscript files following the instructions given on the screen.


 


Preparation of manuscript


Use of word processing software


It is important that the file be saved in the native format of the word processor used. The text should be in the font of Times New Roman, size 12 and 1.15 line spacing, and single-column format. Number all pages consecutively. Insert continuous line numbers into the text in order to facilitate reviewing. Keep the layout of the text as simple as possible. Refrain from unnecessarily using bold and italics to emphasize words in the text. Italics are to be used for expressions of Latin origin and scientific names, for example, in vivo, et al. and per se. Use decimal points (not commas) and a comma for thousands or above. Do not embed graphically designed equations or tables; prepare these using the word processor’s software. Present table legends directly on top of tables and figure legends directly below figures. To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the spellchecker function of your word processor. Full research papers should not exceed 5,000 words (including abstract but excluding references).


Article structure


Manuscript must be divided into the following sub-headings. Subdivision of the article should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, etc.), 1.2, etc. Use this system of numbering also for internal cross-referencing; do not refer to anything as simply ‘the text’. Any subsection may be given a brief heading (in bold) on its own line.



  • Title: Keep the title concise and informative. Avoid abbreviations and formulae.

  • Author names and affiliation: Please indicate authors’ names clearly as well as the authors’ affiliation addresses below the names. Indicate each affiliation with an Arabic numeral superscript immediately after an author’s name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the province/state and country of each affiliation.

  • Corresponding author: Clearly indicate a telephone number (with country and area codes) in addition to an e-mail address. An asterisk in superscript is to be used immediately after the corresponding author’s name.

  • Abstract: A concise and factual abstract is required that does not exceed 300 words. The abstract should briefly state the purpose of the research, principal results and major conclusions. References in the abstract must be avoided as well as non-standard or uncommon abbreviations, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.

  • Keywords: Immediately after the abstract, provide no more than 6 keywords and avoid general, plural terms and multiple concepts (e.g., and, of).

  • Introduction: State the objective of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

  • 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 and Discussion: Describe an exploration of the significance of the results of the works; do not repeat them.

  • Conclusion: Keep the conclusion brief.

  • Acknowledgements: Place acknowledgments, including information on grants received.

  • References: Authors are entirely responsible for the accuracy of bibliographic citations. References should be arranged according to their citation in the text.



  1. Citations in the text: Each cited reference in the text is given a number in brackets in its order of appearance (see recent article). Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Unpublished results and personal communications should not be in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. Citation of a reference as 'in press' means that the item has been accepted for publication.

  2. Citing and listing of web references: At minimum, the full URL and last access date should be given. Any further information, if known (author names, dates, reference to the source publication, etc.), should also be given.

  3. List of references:

Nomenclature and units: Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions, and use the International System of Units (SI). If other quantities are mentioned, give their equivalents in SI units.
