Author Guidelines

The journal does not have article processing charges or submission charges.

The journal allows the author(s) to hold the copyright and to retain publishing rights without restrictions.

These instructions are designed for authors submitting final papers and should be read carefully. If they are not adhered to, it could result in delay in publication and/or in sub-optimal reproduction quality


1. Introduction (Times New Roman 12, Bold)

The guideline explains how to prepare your paper in printer-ready format for the journal, so that its appearance is clear and consistent with the other papers in the journal. To avoid confusion, the family name must be written as the last part of each author name in capital letters (Professor John A.K. MOORE, PhD). The paper must provide the details of the work to readers. It should be divided into sections, each with a heading, so that a reader can follow the logical development of the work.

The paper must give the clear answers on 5 - What questions:

1)  What is the problem (problem statement)?

2)  What have been done by other people (literature - critical overview)?

3)  What have I done (research course, method used, and technical solutions)?

4)  What are new (results)?      

5)  What to do as next (further research)? 

Final submissions not following the required format will be returned to the authors for modification and compliance. All scientific papers should be written in English or French. The abstract and the keywords must be written in English. Romanian authors should provide within the same document the Romanian version of the article as well.

2.  General Organization of the Paper

The length of your paper should not exceed 6-10 pages.

2.1.  Layout (11 pt, Bold)

An easy way to comply with the review paper formatting requirements is to use this document as a template and simply type your text into it. Headers, footers or page numbers must not be included. The paper must be set as follows:

  • A4 Format (21 cm x 29.7 cm)
  • Margins: top: 2.5 cm, bottom: 2.5 cm, left and right 2.5 cm each.
  • Times New Roman fonts, line spacing single. The font formats are: paper title: 12.5 pt bold, capital letters at each word; author's name(s): 10 pt bold; abstract & keywords: 9 pt; chapter titles: 12 pt bold, capital letters at each word justified; subtitles: 11 pt bold, numbered, justified; text: 11 pt, paragraph Before: 0; After: 6), the content of the bibliography: 9 pt, justified

Any additional information you can find on our official site:

3.1       Footnotes

The superscript numeral used to refer to a footnote appears in the text either directly after the word to be discussed or – in relation to a phrase or a sentence – following the punctuation mark (comma, semicolon, or period). Footnotes should appear at the bottom of the normal text area, with a line of about 5 cm set immediately above them.

To help your readers, avoid using footnotes altogether and include necessary peripheral observations in the text (within parentheses, if you prefer, as in this sentence). All footnotes must be numbered consecutively (in Arabic numbers) on each page. Keep footnotes to a minimum or else list them in a special section before references.

3.2. Citations and References

Whenever you refer to previously published work, you should set a reference to acknowledge the work you build upon.

References and citations should follow the Harvard System Convention an APA Citation Style. As example you may consider the citation (Smith & Moore, 2008). Besides that, all references should be cited in the text. No numbers with or without brackets should be used to cite or to list the references.

3.3.  Tables

All tables must be numbered consecutively (in Arabic numbers). Table headings should be placed above the table. Leave no blank line between the table and the caption.

3.4. Page Numbering

Do not add any text to the headers (do not set running heads) and footers, not even page numbers, because text will be added electronically.

4.  Conclusion

Please read these instructions carefully. Prepare your paper and data exactly according to the instructions. Please present your results clearly in a logical sequence which supports the hypothesis/research target.
