Paper title

The title of the article should be written three line spaces (point 12) down from the top of the typing area, size 16 point bold, centered. The title should be written in capital letters.

Names of authors-affiliations

The names of the authors should be written in lower case letters; bold letters point 13, centered and separated from the title by one multiple line spacing 1.15. The name of the authors should be written with the surname in full, preceded by the initial(s) of the first name(s) (e.g. J. Gordon). The name of the authors should be followed by their affiliations: organization and full address, centered, point 12 characters. Specify by asterisk the corresponding author. Leave one 1.15-line space and write the e-mail, phone or fax of the corresponding author only, centered, point 12 characters.

Headings

Leave one 1.15-line space from the keywords and start writing the main text of the article. Headings should be set aligned left, and consecutively numbered (e.g. 1. INTRODUCTION2. MATERIALS AND METHODS, etc., 5. CONCLUSIONS). ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS and REFERENCES follow after CONCLUSIONS and are written without numbering. The main headings should be separated by one 1.15-line space from the text above and below, in bold capital letters. The secondary headings should be separated by one 1.15-line space from the text above and below, in bold characters and consecutively numbered (e.g. 1.1 Literature review1.2 The present situation, etc.). Only the first word should start with a capital and the rest in lower case letters, in bold characters.

Tables

Tables should be included in the main text, preferably after they are cited and as close as possible to their first citation and should be consecutively numbered by Arabic numerals. Write the word "Table" and the corresponding number (in bold characters) and then the table caption above the table columns.

Figures should not exceed the margins of the typing area and should be consecutively numbered by Arabic numerals. Write the word "Figure" and the corresponding number (in bold characters) and then the figure caption below the figure. Figures should be numbered in the order that they are first cited in the text and they should be placed as close as possible to their first citation. Figure should be referred in the text by Figure 1, Figure 2 and so on. 

Equations

Equations should be written in a separate line, left justified and consecutively numbered by Arabic numerals. Place the number of equations in parentheses at the right page margin and refer to them by Equation 1, Equation 2 and so on in the text.

Units-Chemical Formulas-Numbers

Please ensure that the following system is used for all scientific and laboratory data: kg for kilogram, L for liters and g for grams. Chemical formulas should also be correct e.g. CO2 (not CO2). Decimal numbers must have a dot "." as a decimal point and not a comma ",". For example, 2.5 (not 2,5). Groups of three digits in numbers greater than 999 should not be separated by a space or comma, e.g 2500 (not 2 500 or 2,500).
