For research articles with several authors, a corresponding author must be designated who will be responsible to ensure that all authors approved the final version of the document. It is the corresponding author’s responsibility to ensure that the author list is correctly introduced.
Authors contribution, acknowledgments and/or funding source/s should be included in "Comments for the Editor" in the online submission form. Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled.

c) Body of the text
The Introduction should state the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
Theory (Literature review)
A Theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction and lay the foundation for further work.
Material and methods
This section should 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 cite the source. Any modifications to existing methods should also be described.
The Results section presents the main findings of the study in a clear, concise and logical manner. This section should objectively summarize the results of the research, accompanied, if necessary, by statistical analyses, figures, tables, and graphs to support the conclusions.
This section should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and discussion section is often appropriate.
The Conclusions section should briefly summarize the main findings of the research based on the objective. It is also important to present the implications and applications of the results, the limitations of the study, and possible areas for future research.
d) Tables, figures, pictures, or maps must be numbered in consecutive order with Arabic characters in the text after the paragraph of its first citation. They shall contain a brief and self-explanatory headline, its source and, when necessary, notes.
