Author Guidelines

Article Template (docx)

Manuscripts should conform to standard rules of English grammar and style. Either British or American spellings may be used, but spelling must be consistent throughout the manuscript. Authors must strictly follow the guide for authors, or their articles may be rejected without review. The manuscript contents should be well organized. Follow Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussions, Conclusions, Acknowledgements, References. The corresponding author should be identified with an asterisk and footnote. Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article and do not include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered as 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering).



Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible. A running title which is shortened version of original title is also needed to be provided for locating at the right most of accepted paper.

Author names and affiliations

Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled. You can add your name between parentheses in your own script behind the English transliteration. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lowercase superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the e-mail address of each author. The corresponding author should be identified with an asterisk and footnote.

Abstract and Keywords

The abstract should not exceed 250 words. It should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. After one blank line from the abstract Key Words be written italics. Include up to six keywords that describe your paper for indexing purposes.

Abbreviations and Acronyms

Define abbreviations and acronyms the first time they are used in the text, even if they have been defined in the abstract. Do not use abbreviations in the title unless they are unavoidable.


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

Materials and Methods

Provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced by an independent researcher. Methods that are already published should be summarized, and indicated by a reference. If quoting directly from a previously published method, use quotation marks and also cite the source. Any modifications to existing methods should also be described.


The data obtained in the study should be presented. Results should be clear and concise.


This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.


The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short conclusions section.


Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references.  List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.).


Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full. Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. Citation of a reference as “in press” implies that the item has been accepted for publication. Number citations consecutively in square brackets [1]. Punctuation follows the bracket [2]. Refer simply to the reference number, as in [3]. Use “Ref. [3]” or Reference [3]” at the beginning of a sentence:  “Reference [3] was …”. Give all authors’ names; use “et al.” if there are six authors or more. For papers published in translated journals, first give the English citation, then the original foreign-language citation.

Text Layout for Peer Review

Use double column layout, 12 pt spacing and narrow (1.21 cm on right and left edges, 2.3 on top edge, 1.8cm on the bottom edge; as given template) margins on white paper at the peer review stage. Ensure that each new paragraph except the first of sections is clearly indicated. Present tables and figure legends in the text where they are related and cited. Number all pages consecutively; use 12 pt font size and standard fonts; Times New Roman, Helvetica, or Courier is preferred.

Research Papers should not exceed 15 printed pages in two-column publishing format, including figures and tables.

Technical Notes and Letters should not exceed 3,000 words.

Reviews should not exceed 20 printed pages in two-column publishing format, including figures and tables.



Please submit math equations as editable text and not as images. Number equations consecutively with equation numbers in parentheses flush with the right margin, as in (1). To make equations more compact, you may use the solidus ( / ), the exp function, or appropriate exponents. Italicize Roman symbols for quantities and variables, but not Greek symbols. Use an dash (–) rather than a hyphen for a minus sign. Use parentheses to avoid ambiguities in denominators. Punctuate equations with commas or periods when they are part of a sentence, as in

                        C = a + b                                                                                                             (1)

Symbols in your equation should be defined before the equation appears or immediately following. Use “Eq. (1)” or “equation (1),” while citing.

Figures and Tables

Figures, graphs, photographs and tables in JPG or TIFF format should be given inside (not a separate page) the manuscript. Figure caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used. All illustrations must have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.

Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Tables can be placed next to the relevant text in the article. Table captions should be written in the same format as figure captions. Please avoid using vertical rules and shading in table cells.
