Author Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit to this journal. All submissions will be assessed by an editor to determine whether they meet the aims and scope of this journal. Those considered to be a good fit will be sent for peer review before determining whether they will be accepted or rejected.

Before submitting, authors are responsible for obtaining permission to publish any material included in the submission, such as photos, documents, and datasets. All authors identified on the submission must consent to be identified as an author. Where appropriate, research should be approved by an appropriate ethics committee under the legal requirements of the study's country.

An editor may reject a submission if it does not meet minimum standards of quality. Before submitting, please ensure that the study design and research argument are structured and articulated properly. The title should be concise and the abstract should be able to stand on its own. This will increase the likelihood of reviewers agreeing to review the paper. When you're satisfied that your submission meets this standard, please follow the checklist below to prepare your submission.

 Manuscript preparation

             Authors must follow the instructions for authors strictly, failing which the manuscripts would be rejected without review. The editor reserves the right to adjust the formatting style to conform to the standards of the journal. Articles must be submitted in English language. The text layout should be in single-column format. Keep the layout of the text as simple as possible. Most formatting codes will be removed and replaced on processing the manuscript. However, do use boldface, italics, subscripts, superscripts, etc. The manuscript should be written in Microsoft Word format.docx, font Arial with 1.5 spacing. On the pages of the manuscript size A4 margins should be: top and bottom 3 cm, left and right 2.2 cm. Add the line numbering and page numbers.

            The complete manuscript should contain the title, abstract, keywords, introduction, experimental part, results, discussion, conclusion, references, drawings, tables, and pictures. Mark the position of figures and tables in the text. Each figure must have a title below the figure and each table must have a title above the table. Figure and table captions should be listed at the end of the manuscript.

To avoid unnecessary errors, it is strongly advised to use the "spell-check" and "grammar-check" functions of your word processor.

Title should be clear, not too long but explanatory (no more than 15 words; Arial bold, all caps, 14 points). The full name(s) of the author(s) (first name, then last name, in Arial bold italic 12 points) should be written below the title. The affiliation(s) and complete postal address(es) of the author(s) should be provided immediately after the full name of the authors and written with Arial italic 11 points. When the paper has more than one author, their name should be followed by a mark (Arabic numeral) as superscript; for the corresponding author, an asterisk symbol should be added using the Word_Insert_Reference_Footnote_Symbol sequence. Also, the full and e-mail addresses of the corresponding author should be provided in the footer of the first page.

Abstract, not exceeding 250 words (10-15 lines), written in Arial, 11 points, italic, should contain a short review of the method and the most important results of work, so that its original text can be used in referential periodicals and databases. Do not include citations in the Abstract.

Keywords (concepts, locations, results) written with Arial 11 points, italics, are listed in a separate line at the end of the abstract. Keywords should be relevant to the topic and content of the paper. An accurate list of keywords will ensure correct indexing of the paper in referential periodicals and databases.

Introduction, written in Arial, 12 points, should include the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.

Experimental, written in Arial, 12 points – 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 written in Arial, 12 points, should not contain what has been already explained by tables and figures. Results should be clear and concise. Discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.

Conclusion written in Arial 12 points should contain only essential contributions made to science. The main conclusions drawn from the results should be presented. Do not include citations in this section.

 Formulae, symbols, and abbreviations. Formulae will be typeset in Italics (preferably with the Equation Editor of Microsoft Office) and should be written or marked as such in the manuscript unless they require a different styling. The formulae should be numbered on the right side, between brackets:

 a3 = 3M / 4N                                                                                     (1)                                  

Always refer in the text to the Equations as (Eq. 1), Eqs. (1-4) etc.
Complex Chemical formulas should be presented as Figures.

Abbreviations should be defined when first mentioned in the abstract and the main body of the text and ensure consistency of abbreviations throughout the article.

The legend should contain definitions of all symbols used, and all abbreviations and units of measurement should be explained so that the figure can be understood without reference to the text.

Tables and figures should essentially contribute to a better understanding and interpretation of the results. Photos, drawings, and other illustrations should be clear and of good quality. The acceptable image formats include:

  • TIFF (or JPEG): Color or grayscale photographs (halftones), keep to a minimum of 300 dpi.
  • TIFF (or JPEG): Bitmapped (pure black & white pixels) line drawings, keep to a minimum of 1000 dpi.
  • TIFF (or JPEG): Combinations of bitmapped line/half-tone (color or grayscale), keep to a minimum of 500 dpi.

Please do not:
• Supply files that are optimized for screen use (e.g., GIF, BMP, PICT, WPG); these typically have a low number of pixels and a limited set of colors;
• Supply files that are too low in resolution;
• Submit graphics that are disproportionately large for the content.

Table and Figure titles should accompany the manuscript and should not be inserted in the text. Illustrations should be labeled “Fig.”, (Fig.1), and numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals in the order in which they are referred to in the text.

Places for tables and figures should be indicated in the manuscript.

Each figure must have a title below the figure and each table must have a title above the table. Figure and table captions should be listed at the end of the manuscript.

Acknowledgements. Include acknowledgments in a separate section at the end of the article before the references.

References. The list of References should only include works that are cited in the text. References are listed in the order in which they appear in the text. Citation in the text is done by specifying the number of references in square brackets, in the original language. Papers that have been accepted for publication should be included in the list of references with the name of the journal and the specification "in press".
