Author Guidelines

Submission requirements – initial stage (for review)

The corresponding author uploads a blinded manuscript as a single PDF file. The manuscript must represent finished and complete work ready for review. Neither a copyright declaration nor any other supplementary files are required at this stage. To ensure double-blind review, authors' names, affiliations, addresses as well as thanks and acknowledgements must be removed from the PDF document. Metadata associated with the file should also be censored.

The submitting author is encouraged to provide a list of suggested reviewers, recognised experts in a related discipline, preferably from countries and institutions other than those of the authors. Their names, positions, affiliations and contact information may be given in the Comments for the Editor section of an on-line submission electronic form. It is also possible to provide a list of not prefered reviewers as well.

The submitting author should enter names and affiliations of all co-authors of the manuscript.
