Author Guidelines

Manuscript Preparation

1. Language
The language of the manuscript must be in English (either American or British standard, but not a mixture of both).

2. Length of paper
The length of the paper should not exceed 25 pages. Paper containing more than 25 pages of words will be returned to the author(s) to abridge. Articles should be typed in double-space (including footnotes and references) on one side of the paper only (preferably A4) with wide margins. Authors are urged to write as concisely as possible, but not at the expense of clarity.

3. Title Page
The title page is a separate page before the text. It should include the following information:

The title should be concise and informative. Try to avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible. Font Times New Roman, size is 14.

Author’s names and affiliations
Please indicate the given name and family name correctly. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case 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, and telephone number of each author.

Corresponding author
Indicate who is willing to handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing, publication and also post-publication. Ensure that telephone numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address.

Sponsoring information
If the research is sponsored or supported by an organization, please indicate it.

4. Abstract
A concise and factual abstract is required (maximum length of 150 to 300 words). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and the major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. References should therefore be avoided, but if essential, they must be cited in full, without reference to the reference list. Font Times New Roman, size is 12.

5. Keywords
Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 8 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of').

6. Subdivision of the article
Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1, 2. (then 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2), 1.2, etc. The abstract is not included in the section numbering.

7. Table and Figures
Present tables and figures at the end of the article. Please note that the article will be published in black and white.

8. References

9. Footnotes

If necessary, use end-to-end footnotes (Arabic numerals) throughout the document.

Footnotes may contain quotations from works that are mentioned in the text and additional information.
