Author Guidelines

1. Authors are encouraged to submit high-quality, original work: scientific papers according to the scope of the Journal, reviews (only solicited) and brief articles.

2. Papers are accepted in English. Either British or American English spelling and punctuation may be used. If proper English is a challenge for you, you may order language edition here or here.

3. All authors of an article are asked to indicate their names (with one forename in full for each author, other forenames being given as initials followed by the surname) and the name and full postal address (including postal code) of the affiliation where the work was done. If there is more than one institution involved in the work, authors’ names should be linked to the appropriate institutions by the use of 1, 2, 3 etc superscript. Telephone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses of the authors could be published as well. One author should be identified as a Corresponding Author. The e-mail address of the corresponding author will be published, unless requested otherwise.

4. Article structure should contain further sections:
  • Abstract.
  • Keywords (Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, 'and', 'of'). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.).
  • Introduction (State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.).
  • Material and methods (Provide sufficient details to allow the work to be reproduced by an independent researcher. Methods that are already published should be summarized, and indicated by a reference. If quoting directly from a previously published method, use quotation marks and also cite the source. Any modifications to existing methods should also be described.
  • Results (Results should be clear and concise.).
  • Discussion (This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.).
  • Conclusions (The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.).
  • Acknowledgements (List here those individuals who provided help during the research and funds which provided financial support of your research.).
  • References (Make a list of references according to guidance provided below). There must be at least 30 references in the list!.
  • Appendices (If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on. Similarly for tables and figures: Table A.1; Fig. A.1, etc.).
5. Math equations should be submitted as editable text and not as images (use appropriate tool in text editor).  Present simple formulae in line with 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. Number consecutively any equations that have to be displayed separately from the text (if referred to explicitly in the text).

6. Figures and figure captions. Number the illustrations according to their sequence in the text. Regardless of the application used, when your figure is finalized, please 'save as' or convert the images to one of the following formats: TIFF, JPG. Supply files that are optimized for screen use. The resolution should be at least 300 dpi. Besides inserting figures into your manuscript, you must also upload appropriate files during paper submission. Ensure that each illustration has a caption. A caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration beginning from “Fig. 1…”. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used.

Example of referring to the figure in text: (Fig. 1)

Example of figure caption: Fig. 1. The distribution of the family Monimiaceae.

7. Tables. Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Tables can be placed either next to the relevant  text  in  the  article,  or  on  separate  page(s)  at  the  end.  Number  tables  consecutively  in accordance with their appearance in the text, place table caption above the table body and place any table notes below the body. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Please avoid using vertical rules and shading in table cells.

Example of table caption: Table 1. Case studies and used methods

8. The optimum size of a manuscript is about 3,000–5,000 words. Under the decision (or request) of the Editorial Board methodological and problem articles or reviews up to 8,000–10,000 words long can be accepted.

9. To facilitate the editorial assessment and reviewing process authors should submit “full” electronic version of their manuscript with embedded figures of “screen” quality as a PDF file.

10. We encourage authors to list three potential expert reviewers in their field. The Editorial Board will view these names as suggestions only.

11. Original reviews of submitted manuscripts remain deposited for 3 years.
