  • Style Guide

    The title
    The title should be short and communicative; avoid acronyms, most acronyms are understood only by specialists in the field. Also, prevent from using Greek letters, special characters or mathematical symbols in the title of the paper. The title page should include the name of each author, their department and institution, the e-mail address of the corresponding author (who should be identified by an asterisk).

     
    The abstract
    The abstract section should be clear and self-explanatory. It should briefly describe the problem being addressed, the proposed method, the leading results and conclusions. It should consist of one paragraph, at least 75 words and no more than 250 words. In order to be suitable for publication in abstracting services do not include references, formulae, special characters or symbols in the abstract.

     
    References
    All citations should be listed in the reference list, and all references should be cited in the text. References should be formatted according to the journal style. Adopted style is very similar to the Chicago citation style (CMS). Authors can use Microsoft Word’s Reference functionality or their favorite citation manager and choose Chicago style for references. Alternatively, authors can obtain citations in Chicago style from https://Scholar.Google.com or www.CitationMachine.net. One simple way to use correct formatting is to search for the cited paper in Google Scholar. After making sure the result is the intended paper, click on Cite option and choose Chicago style to copy-paste into your paper's reference section. Apply the corrections if needed and add the DOI to the end of the citation. Authors must provide the DOI links to references where applicable. DOIs should be placed after each reference, first use “DOI= “ followed by “http://dx.doi.org/” and then the DOI number. DOIs can be found in the original publishers websites. Alternatively authors can use DOI lookup tool from CrossRef website at https://doi.crossref.org/guestquery.
