The manuscript

The manuscript should be arranged according to the following pattern:

First document (main file) - The authors are fully responsible for the manuscript anonymization

Title (please use capital letters only when needed).

  1. Up to 6 key words.
  2. Structured summary. The summary should be divided into small chapters:
    • Background. Why the study was initiated? Why this type of study is needed? and What is the aim of the present paper?
    • Material and methods.
    • Results, principal.
    • Conclusion (with a closing remarks – What is the importance of the present findings? and What directions it sets for future research?). Please note that the Conclusion is not a summary of the results, but a more general statement. While writing the summary please keep in mind that it may be also reprinted separately by abstracting/indexing journals or databases. In research notes or review articles a short conventional abstract should be written instead of a structured summary.
  3. Main text should contains: Introduction, Material and methods, Results, Discussion,  References, tables, and figures. Figure captions (including full legend describing the figure and explaining all the symbols used) must be pasted below respective figures (do not repeat them). An excess of headings and subheadings should be avoided. Only generic and specific names should be set in italics. Any issue not covered by the present instruction should be resolved based on the APA system and The scientific style and format. The CBE manual for authors, editors, and publishers [1994, Cambridge Univ. Press].

  4. Detailed corresponding address (street, post code, city, country, phone and fax numbers, e-mail address).
  5. Important! Obligatory! Funding Source Declaration (funding agency e.g. university or research grants and their source received in the course of study)
  6. Possibly Acknowledgements
