Manuscript Preparation
To expedite the review process, please format the manuscript in ways as follow:

Article type:
One Column

How to prepare a manuscript
There is no general limitation of the overall size nor of the number of figures, nor of the level of details considered to be necessary. However, the appropriate length of a manuscript depends on the information presented in the paper.

Your article should normally consist of the following sections and should follow the Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion system:

  • Title page with the title of the article, name(s) of author(s) and address(es) of establishment(s) where the work was carried out
  • Abstract
  • Introduction
  • Methods section
  • Results section
  • Discussion section
  • Conclusion section
  • Acknowledgments section
  • References

Your abstract must be written using Times or Times New Roman 12pt font. Abstract title must be centered, 1 spacing and 12pt bold with initial letters capitalized. Authors, affiliations and body text must be 12pt font.

Title page

Title of article
The title should be concise, informative and meaningful to the whole readership of the journal. Please avoid the use of long systemic names and non-standard abbreviations, acronyms or symbols.

Author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s)
A list of all authors (with first and last name(s) written in full), as well as corresponding addresses, should be provided. Each address should be preceded by a numerical superscript corresponding to the same superscript after the name of the author concerned. Addresses should contain all information necessary for an effective mail delivery. E-mail should also be provided to speed up communication between readers and authors. This information will be published unless authors request otherwise.

Author lists should be finalized prior to submission. For articles with several authors, please list the names of all the authors first, followed by the full postal addresses, using superscript numeric identifiers to link an author with an address where necessary.

Abstract
Your abstract should give readers concise information about the content of your article. It should be informative, accessible and not only indicate the general scope of the article but also state the main results obtained and conclusions drawn. The abstract should be complete in itself – no table numbers, figure numbers, references or equations should be referred to. It should be suitable for direct inclusion in abstracting services and should not normally be more than 300 words.

Keywords
There should  be less than 10

Main body of the paper
The body of the paper could be divided into sections. Sections should be numbered with arabic (not roman) numerals. Subsections (second level) should be numbered1.2, 1.3, etc., and sub-subsections (third level) 1.1.1, 1.1.2, etc. Appendices should be numbered A, B, etc. All sections must have a short descriptive title, in which only the first word should be capitalized. Equations, tables, figures, and references should follow a sequential numerical scheme in order to ensure

a logical development of the subject matter. For details, see the internationally agreed standards adopted by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) or defined by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO). It is helpful for readers if your article is concise, but clarity is essential. Short sentences and paragraphs make reading easier. You should aim for consistency within your article in matters such as hyphenation and spelling. All acronyms and abbreviations should be clearly explained when they first appear in the text, and all units used should be consistent throughout the article.

Introduction
This should be concise and describe the nature of the problem under investigation and its background. It should also set your work in the context of previous research, citing relevant references. Introductions should expand on highly specialized terms and abbreviations used in the article to make it accessible for readers.

Methods
This section should provide sufficient details of the experiment, simulation, statistical test or analysis carried out to generate the results so that the method can be repeated by another researcher.

Results
The results section should detail the main findings and outcomes of your study. You should use tables only to improve conciseness or where the information cannot be given satisfactorily in other ways such as histograms or graphs. Tables should be numbered serially and referred to in the text by number (table 1, etc.). Each table should have an explanatory caption which should be as concise as possible.

Discussion
This should discuss the significance of the results and compare them with previous work using relevant references.

Conclusion
This section should be used to highlight the novelty and significance of the work, and any plans for future relevant work.

Acknowledgments
All authors and co-authors are required to disclose any potential conflict of interest when submitting their article (e.g. employment, consulting fees, research contracts, stock ownership, patent licenses, honoraria, advisory affiliations, etc). This information should be included in an acknowledgments section at the end of the manuscript (before the references section). All sources of financial support for the project must also be disclosed in the acknowledgments section. The name of the funding agency and the grant number should be given, for example:

References
It is important to check the accuracy of bibliographic information in references. This has become more important with the on-line version. Hyperlinks will be programmed to enable readers to jump directly to the material cited. If your reference citations are in corrector incomplete (e.g., missing author name, or an incorrect volume number or page), the associated hyperlinks may fail, and the usefulness of your paper in the on-line environment may be diminished.

There are two main systems for labeling references.

In the Vancouver numerical system, references are numbered sequentially through the text. The numbers should be given in square brackets, e.g. [1], [4-7] etc., and one number can be used to refer to several instances of the same reference. The reference list at the end of the article then lists the references in numerical order, not alphabetically. Alternatively, in the Harvard alphabetical system, the name of the author appears in the text together with the year of publication, e.g. (Smith 2001) or Smith (2001) (as appropriate). Where there are only two authors both names should be given in the text, e.g. (Smith and Jones 2001) or Smith and Jones (2001); however, if there are more than two authors only the first name should appear followed by et al: (Smith et al 2001) or Smith et al (2001). If you refer to different works by one author or group of authors in the same year they should be differentiated by including a, b, etc after the date (e.g. 2001a). If you refer to different pages of the same article, the page number may be given in the text, e.g. Smith (2001, p 39). The reference list at the end of your article using this system should be in alphabetical order. It is vitally important that you fully acknowledge all relevant work. A reference should give your reader enough information to locate the article concerned and should consist of:

  • author name(s) and initials
  • year of publication
  • title of the journal or book
  • the volume number
  • for books: town of publication and the name of the publisher
  • and finally the article number or page numbers.

Where there are up to ten authors, all authors’ names should be given in the reference list. Where there are more than ten authors, only the first name should appear, followed by et al. Note that journal names should be abbreviated according to the list of serial title word abbreviation of the ISDS (International Serial Data System) if available, otherwise full journal names are preferable
