Issue Editor’s Checklist

The editor is required to check off the submission's compliance with all of the following items before sending it to the reviewers. Submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission includes the text of the article (introduction, main text, and conclusion), key words, abstract, reference list, and information about the author in the original language. Besides that, it includes an English translation of the abstract, key words, reference list, and information about the author and the author’s affiliation. 

  2. The submission file is in Microsoft Word document file format. 

  3. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points rather than at the end. 

  4. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in “About the Journal.”
