Instruction for Authors

 

Manuscript preparation

There is no restriction on the length of the papers. The manuscript should be assembled in the following order: title page, abstract, keywords, introduction, experimental part, results and discussion (includinَg conclusions), acknowledgement (optional), references. Figures and Tables should be embedded in the text. Pages should be numbered consecutively from the beginning (title page) to the end. You can download a sample paper and a template file.

 

Title: Title of the manuscript should reflect to the purpose and results of the investigation.

 

Author names and affiliations: Authors' full address, homepage address, phone and fax numbers and e-mail address can be included in the title page and these will be published. Corresponding author must be clearly indicated who is willing to handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication.

 

Abstract: Every paper must be accompanied by an abstract. A concise and factual abstract consisting of one paragraph is required (about 200 words). The abstract should state briefly the scope, the principal results and major conclusions. Abbreviations and reference citations should be avoided.

 

Keywords: A list of three to five keywords must be given, and placed after the Abstract.

 

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

 

Experimental: This should be presented as a clear and detailed description of experimental procedures and analytical conditions to enable readers to carry out similar work. Supply sample preparation procedures, name, model and configuration details of equipment used, and data handing methods.

 

Results and discussion: This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them.

 

Conclusion: A short Conclusions section is to be presented and should be divided into specific points.

 

Acknowledgement: Place acknowledgements, including information on grants received, before the references, in a separate section, and not as a footnote on the title page.

 

References: Reference numbers should be placed in square brackets [ ], and placed before the punctuation. Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the authors. Number the references (numbers in square brackets) in which they appear in the text. All the references should be listed separately and as the last section at the end of the manuscript.
Journal titles should be abbreviated according to standard ISO rules. Lists of journal title abbreviations is available at  http://images.isiknowledge.com/help/WOS/A_abrvjt.html or http://www.cas.org/sent.html.

Tables & Figures: Tables should be embedded in the main body of the text. Tables should be clearly referred in the text by using Arabic numerals. Each table should have a title that makes the general meaning understandable without reference to the text. Figures with high-quality reproductions should be embedded in the text. The legends should be prepared as a separate paragraph of the main text and placed in the main text before a table and before a figure or a scheme.
