Author Guidelines

Manuscript Preparation

General Considerations

  • Research manuscripts should comprise:
    • Front matter: Title, Author list, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords.
    • Research manuscript sections: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions.
    • Back matter: Supplementary Materials( if any), Acknowledgments, Author Contributions, Conflicts of Interest, References.

(Template) file can be also used to prepare the front and back matter of your review manuscript.  

Front Matter

These sections should appear in all manuscript types

  • Title: The title of your manuscript should be concise, specific and relevant. It should not be more than 10-15 words.
  • Author List and Affiliations: Authors' full first and last names must be provided. At least one author should be designated as the corresponding author. The email addresses of all authors will be displayed on published papers. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to ensure that consent for the display of email addresses is obtained from all authors. If an author (other than the corresponding author) does not wish to have their email addresses displayed in this way, the corresponding author must indicate as such during proofreading.  
  • Abstract: The abstract should be a total of about 250 words maximum. The abstract should be a single paragraph and should follow the style of structured abstracts, but without headings: 1) Aims   2) Methods ; 3) Results ; and 4) Conclusion. Keywords: Three to ten pertinent keywords need to be added after the abstract.  

Research Manuscript Sections

  • Introduction: The introduction should briefly place the study in a broad context and highlight why it is important. It should define the purpose of the work and its significance, including specific hypotheses being tested. Briefly mention the main aim of the work and highlight the main conclusions.  
  • Materials and Methods: They should be described with sufficient detail to allow others to replicate and build on published results.  
  • Results: Provide a concise and precise description of the experimental results, their interpretation as well as the experimental conclusions that can be drawn.
  • Discussion: Authors should discuss the results and how they can be interpreted in perspective of previous studies and of the working hypotheses.  
  • Conclusions: One paragraph that Summarizes your thoughts and conveying the larger implications of your study.

Back Matter

  • Supplementary Materials: Describe any supplementary material published online alongside the manuscript (figure, tables, video, spreadsheets, etc.). Please indicate the name and title of each element as follows Figure S1: title, Table S1: title, etc.
  • Author Contributions: Each author is expected to have made substantial contributions to the conception or design of the work; or the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data.
  • Funding: All sources of funding of the study should be disclosed.
  • Data Availability Statement: Tell the reader where the research data associated with a paper is available, and under what conditions the data can be accessed. They also include links (where applicable) to the data set.
  • Acknowledgments: In this section you can acknowledge any support given.
  • Conflicts of Interest: Authors must identify and declare any interest that may be perceived as influencing the representation or interpretation of reported research results. If there is no conflict of interest, please state "The authors declare no conflict of interest."
  • References:  References should follow APAP style .

Preparing Figures, Schemes and Tables

  • All Figures, Schemes and Tables should be inserted into the main text close to their first citation and must be numbered following their number of appearance (Figure 1, Scheme 1, Figure 2, Scheme 2, Table 1, etc.).
  • All Figures, Schemes and Tables should have a short explanatory title and caption.
  • All table columns should have an explanatory heading. To facilitate the copy-editing of larger tables, smaller fonts may be used, but no less than 8 pt. in size. Authors should use the Table option of Microsoft Word to create tables.
