Instructions to the Authors

The journal publishes English-language papers only. Papers may be written in either American or British English. Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication has been approved by all the authors. The accepted work should not be published elsewhere in the same form, in either the same or another language, without the consent of the editors and the publisher. Responsibility for the accuracy of the material in the manuscript, including bibliographic citations, lies entirely with the authors.

Authors should submit their manuscript online at the website:

http://www.serialspublications.com/newuser.asp The authors should follow the hyperlink and upload the manuscript files following the instructions given on the screen. The paper file should be in MS-WORD and/or PDF format. Submitted articles in PDF format should follow document image size, legal paper format, paper image format, font type and size, line spacing, so the PDF format and WORD formats will be harmonious in the final journal print.

Manuscripts should be written in Times New Roman #12 type, double spaced with wide margins, and printed on one side of the paper only. All pages should be numbered consecutively. Titles and subtitles should be kept as short as possible. References, tables, and figures should be printed on separate pages.

The first page of the manuscripts should contain the Title, the name(s) and institutional affiliation(s) of the author(s) and a footnote for the name, address, telephone number, fax number, and E-mail address of the corresponding author. The second page should contain the Abstract of not more than 200 words and 4-6 Key words.

The Introduction section should briefly outline the paper’s field and establish the background for the work of the manuscript. The section Materials and methods should be detailed enough for readers to reproduce the experiments. This section is followed by sections of Results and Discussion. The overall conclusions based on the work reported should be given in the Discussion. The sections for the Results and Discussion sections may be combined in one section. Acknowledgments should be presented at the end of the main text in a separate section. In the text, a consistent enumeration system should be followed using Arabic numerals such as 3.1, 3.2, etc.
The numerical system of references should be used.  

References are listed together in their order of appearance in a separate section at the end of the text under the heading References.
