Notes and references

Where explanatory notes and references are relevant, they should be indicated in the text by a superscript number like this [1]. A full list of all notes and references should be provided at the end of the paper. The written of the journal references use IEEE format. Please use Mendeley program to make the citation work easier. Journal references should include all authors' names and initials, year of publication, title of paper, journal titles in full, volume number and first and last page numbers[2]. References to books should include their edition, and all editor(s) and all relevant authors, publisher and place of publication[3]. It is the authors' responsibility to check the accuracy of references. Examples:

Figures and Tables

All illustrations of any kind must be submitted as sequentially numbered figures, one to a page. Although high-resolution images are not required for the initial refereeing stage, if the essay is subsequently selected for publication then all figures and tables will need to be provided at the highest quality in digital format. When symbols, arrows, numbers or letters are used to identify parts of illustrations they must be clearly identified by a key in the figure legend, rather than in the figure itself. Similarly, internal scales, staining or processing of the figure must be explained where appropriate. Figure legends should be listed sequentially on a separate page. In all cases where the author is not the owner of the copyright of the figures, written permission must be obtained from the copyright holder(s) to reproduce the figures in this journal.


Each table must be typed, and consecutively numbered. They should have a brief informative title placed as a heading. Tables should be understable without reference to the text, but they should be referred to in the text. Explanatory caption should be brief and placed beneath the table. Please note that numbering of tables should be differ from the numbering of figures.



Use only recommended SI units. Numerals should be used for all numbers of two or more digits, and for single digits when attached to units of measure. Abbreviations should be defined in parentheses after their first mention in the text in accordance with internationally agreed rules.
