GUIDE FOR AUTHORS

On this page you can find detailed instructions for preparation of your manuscript.

Completely formatted template for entering text and tables/figures (AE - Template and guide for authors - ENG.dot) can be downloaded here.

Original scientific paper should contain: Abstract, Key words, Introduction, Material and Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusions and Bibliography.

The text, maximum 10 pages, including full text, tables, charts, figures, etc., should be prepared on A4 format paper (210 × 297 mm). Margins: Top - 53 mm, Bottom - 53 mm, Left - 42 mm, Right - 42 mm. Paper should be typed in font - Times New Roman, font size - 10 pt, line spacing - Single, alignment - Justified, indentation - First line (0.63 cm).

Titles, Subtitles and Authors

Paper title, names of authors and subtitles should be centered. Write the paper title in UPPERCASE LETTERS, font size 12, bold.

Write I level subtitles in UPPERCASE LETTERS, font size 10, bold/centered. Write II level subtitles in lowercase letters, font size 10, bold/ centered.

Enter authors and coauthors full first names and family names without titles and affiliations, in lowercase letters, font size 10, bold/centered.

Enter the authors addresses in lowercase letters, font size 10, italic/centered. Mark each name with the number in superscript behind, to connect it to the corresponding institution. Only for the contact author (marked with asterisk) additionally note the e-mail address in footnote. Authors institutions need to be given in full official title and place, including all hierarchy for multi level institutions or consisting units (e.g. University of ... – Faculty of ... – Institute of ... – Department of ... - Laboratory of ... ) (10 pt italic/centered).

Abstract

The paper must have an abstract of 100 to 250 words, supplying general information about the objectives of the paper, experimental techniques, methods applied, significant results, and conclusions. Do not use tables, charts, figures and literature citations. Abstract is followed by maximum 10 key words, separated by commas (font 10pt, italic).

For spacing use only empty rows in the following cases: before and after subtitle, between the title and authors names, between authors names and authors addresses, before and after the table or figure title, after table or figure.

Material and Methods

Use only the units from SI system. Words and abbreviations from Latin language should be written in italic letters (Zea mays L.). Symbols for variables, marks, labels, etc. must be identical in the text, equations, figures, tables and nomenclature. Variables must be in italic style.

Numeration of tables, charts, figures, photos etc. (high resolution and contrast) should be included in text (Tab. 1, Fig. 2, etc.). Table numeration and title should be inserted above the table. Table borders should be normal style continuous lines - Line Weight ½. Text in tables - tnr, Font size 9 pt. Figures and charts should also be numerated (Graph. 1). Numbers and titles should be entered below the chart or figure (Fig. 1). Give the title and numeration in italic style.

Results and Discussion

References should be numbered in brackets in the order of appearance in the text, e. g. [1], [3, 4], [7-11], etc. The full references should be listed at the end of the paper in numerical order of citation in the text.

All equations, formulas, and expressions should be numbered in parentheses e. g. (1), with right alignment, in the order of appearance in the text, and must be centered with one line left above and below.

Also, equations, formulas, and expressions should be referenced within the text with eq. or formula or expression, with corresponding number in parentheses, as eq. (5). Equations should be written in equation editor (MS Equation 3.0 or Mathtype) with the basic font size - tnr 10 pt.

Conclusions

Please check once again if you have formatted your full paper according to the given instructions.

Bibliography
