1.     Introduction (Times New Roman 14)

(Times New Roman 12, single space) The journal publishes original papers in English and is strongly supported by a dedicated editorial-scientific board. Manuscripts should be submitted in the publication language, in scanned format (PDF files) and electronic format (in order to facilitate an accurate typesetting) via OJS. A manuscript will be reviewed by a minimum of one referee and will be considered for publication on the basis of originality of contribution.


The journal does not apply any restrictions regarding authors’ copyright or publishing rights. Papers must be submitted on the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review, or thesis) and are not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. The submitting author is responsible for ensuring that the article’s publication has been approved by all the other coauthors.


2.     Literature Review (You can change the title in the subtitles section)

Preferred formats for the text and tables of your manuscript are .doc, .rtf. Prepared using Microsoft Word or other word processors software. It is important that the file is saved in the native format of the word processor used. In particular, do not use the word processor’s options to hyphenate words. Do not embed “graphically designed” equations or tables, but prepare these using the word processor’s facility. To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the “spell-check” and “grammar-check” functions of your word processor.


The text should be as short and concise as possible, excluding anything, which is not directly relevant to the subject matter but including any associated safety, environmental or ethical issues. The text should be readily understood by practicing specialists. All statements and references should be correct and accurate. A speculative material must be clearly identified as such. The text should be in the third person and should avoid colloquialisms – texts originally prepared for oral presentation, therefore, will usually need to be rewritten. The text should not refer to the names of individuals, organizations, products or services unless it is essential to understanding and then only appear once. Text must be neither gratuitously complimentary nor in any way derogatory about any person or organization. Principal participants in a project should be listed separately from the text in an Acknowledgement.


3. Research Methods

A paper for publication in Journal must contain a title, names and affiliations of the authors, a list of keywords, a brief abstract at the beginning, a conclusion section at the end of the main body, and a list of references that follows the conclusion section. The manuscript must be typewritten with single spacing and wide margins, on a single side of an A4 paper. The text should be in single-column format. Times New Roman typeface should be used throughout. A handwritten manuscript will not be accepted for review. Each page should be numbered beginning with the title page to facilitate review.


Title and Authors’ Names and Affiliations (Sub section, Times new roman 12 Bold)

The title of the paper should be typed in boldface and centered on the page. The authors’ names should also be centered on the page. Directly under the authors’ names, place their affiliation(s), with full postal address and email address for each author, centered on the page. We also ask to add ORCID iDs or Google Scholar iDs, unique codes that identify the individual(s) who contributed to research.


4. Results

The Abstract

Each manuscript must be accompanied by an abstract that should count 200…250 words and have a structured form which reflects your paper (background, material, and methods, results, conclusion). The abstract should not include references, figure citations or acronyms.


The Key Words

The authors are requested to supply 6…10 Key Words, separated by a semi-colon, that can be used for indexing/abstracting purposes. Key Words should not repeat the title of the manuscript.



It is useful and recommended to divide the full text into paragraphs (or sections), with titles assigned with serial Arabic numbers and typed in capital all significant first letters, centered, as in Sample Manuscript. The first paragraph is usually, but not obligatory, denoted as 1. Introduction, but the last becomes a rule entitled Conclusion. The last paragraph (section) reflects the findings of the author, in the form of a set of concise sentences numbered sequentially by Arabic numbers.


Nomenclature and units

Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI). If other quantities are mentioned, give their equivalent in SI or if SI units do not exist, in an internationally accepted unit.


5. Conclusion and Suggestion

Equations and Mathematical Expressions

Equations are separated from the paragraphs of text. They should be centered in the text. These equations should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numbers enclosed in parentheses and set on the right margin. The respective references in the text will be as Eq. (1), (2) and (3).



Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article (e.g. in graphs). Tables should be numbered consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and given a suitable caption. Tables should be simple with brief column headlines (including all units) and a few rows and columns as possible. Each table should be numbered consecutively and referred to in the text (e.g. Table 1). Supplied tables on separate pages at the end of the manuscript.
