Author Guidelines

General guidelines

The language of the Journal is English. There is no formal limit on the length of a paper, but Editors may recommend shortening of a long paper. If accepted for publication, the final version of the paper must be provided in Microsoft Word Document or OpenDocument format. All papers must be prepared using the provided templates:

 Illustrations and References

All the illustrations should be numbered consecutively and supplied with captions. They must fit on a 124 X 194 mm sheet of paper, including the title. 
The illustrations are to be presented in TIF, WMF, BMP, PCX or PNG formats (the resolution of point graphics pictures is 300 dots per inch).

The list of references should be presented at the end of the paper. References in the article text should be numbered in order of appearance written in square brackets (e.g. [2]). All references at the end of the paper must include DOI identifiers where available, and for all online resources a URL must be provided along with the date of last retrieval of the resource.

For the automatic formatting of the references and bibliograpy a Mendeley Citation Style is available. It is also available as a download.

Authors’ Information

This section includes any relevant information about the author(s) that may aid the reader’s interpretation of the article, and understand the standpoint of the author(s). This may include details about the authors’ qualifications, current positions they hold at institutions or societies, or any other relevant background information.

Double-blind Review

To ensure the integrity of the blind peer-review for submission to this press, every effort should be made to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other. This involves the authors, editors, and reviewers (who upload documents as part of their review) checking to see if the following steps have been taken with regard to the text and the file properties:

  • The authors of the document have deleted their names from the text, page headers, document footer and bibliography, with "Author" and year used in the references and footnotes, instead of the authors' name, article title, etc. 
  • With Microsoft Office documents, author identification should also be removed from the properties for the file (see under File in Word), by clicking on the following, beginning with File on the main menu of the Microsoft application: File > Save As > Tools (or Options with a Mac) > Security > Remove personal information from file properties on save > Save.

Please make sure that the submitted documents adhere the above mentioned guidelines and complies with all the items in the preparation checklist.
