A cover letter must be included with each manuscript submission. It should be concise and explain why the content of the paper is significant, placing the findings in the context of existing work. It should explain why the manuscript fits the scope of the journal. In addition, it should be state that the submitted work has not been published previously (except as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, including electronically without the written consent of the copyright-holder. To verify originality, your article will be checked by the plagiarism detection software iThenticate. The names of proposed and excluded reviewers should be provided in the submission system, not in the cover letter.

Figure numbers should be placed within the body text to determine the positions of the figures in the final document. Appropriate formats for figures are JPEG and TIFF with a resolution of at least 300 dpi. Please submit editable, un-flattened pictures whenever possible. Charts should be inserted using Microsoft Word and related raw data of graphs and charts should be provided in separate Excel files. Figures should be numbered and accordingly mentioned in parenthesis (as in Figure 1) in the text for at least once.


Data in tables should not duplicate the data already presented in the body text. Tables should be numbered and accordingly mentioned in parenthesis (as in Table 1) in the text for at least once. Each table should include a concise and concrete caption, written above it.

Supplementary Data

Supplementary data should be provided in appropriate formats to be edited according to the journal’s editing and typesetting requirements.


Abbreviations must be defined at their first mention in the text (not in the Abstract). Ensure consistency of abbreviations throughout the article.


Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI). If other units are mentioned, please give their equivalent in SI.

Math Formulae

Present simple formulae in the line of normal text where possible and use the solidus (/) instead of a horizontal line for small fractional terms, e.g., X/Y. In principle, variables are to be presented in italics. Powers of e are often more conveniently denoted by exp. Number consecutively any equations that have to be displayed separately from the text (if explicitly referred to within the text).
