The abstract should be an objective representation of the article: it must not contain results, which are not presented and substantiated in the main text and should not exaggerate the main conclusions.
  • 1. Introduction. The introduction should briefly place the study in a broad context and highlight why it is important in the globe. The current state of the research field should be reviewed carefully and key publications cited. Please highlight controversial and diverging hypotheses when necessary. Finally, mention the concrete aim of the work.
  • 2. Materials and methods / Methodology / Experimental part. This part should include the description of all materials, methods, and approaches used to achieve the stated aim. It should be enough detailed to allow others to replicate and build on published results. New methods and protocols should be presented in detail while well-established methods can be briefly described and appropriately cited. Give the name, version, producer, and country of any materials, chemicals, equipment, and software used in the work.
  • 3. Results and discussion. Authors should succinctly present the experimental/theoretical results and provide a concise and precise description and their interpretation. All data in tables and figures should not be duplicated in the text, but should be discussed and concluded. The results should be compared to and contrasted with the findings of other studies.
  • 4. Conclusion. Indicate the main conclusions or interpretations. There should be no repetition of the results! This section should end with a clear, concise conclusion that does not go beyond the findings of the study. The type of future studies needed, if appropriate, should be mentioned here.
  • References. References must be numbered in order of their appearance in the text and listed individually at the end of the manuscript. Self-citation should not exceed 15%. References must be from international databases and should be accessible to reviewers and editors. The number of sources must be at least 10.
