The text part of the manuscript must be prepared in a word-processing program (WORD), font Times New Roman, size 12, margin width 2.5 cm, double-line spacing.

The text itself shall be written in straight setting, without indentations, bulleting, hard enters at the end of the line or tabulators. All pre-settings must be cancelled. In the manuscript document follow this chronology: front page, abstract and key words (on one page, in English on another page together with a translation of the paperʼs title) in mother tongue, the actual text, references, tables, and captions.

Valid grammar rules (progressive valid wording) shall be followed. Trade terminology, abbreviations and symbols shall correspond to valid norms, in particular SI.

Attach page numbers to the manuscript in this chronology: front page, abstract, key words, actual text, references, caption texts, typeset tables. Attach figures separately.

The manuscript shall include an imprimatur of the leading institution and a statement that the paper has not been and will not be published in a different journal.

The length of each abstract should not exceed 300 words.
