When citing specific brand names of products or technologies, include in parentheses the manufacturer’s name and country. The Experimental part has to provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Only new procedures should be described in detail, methods already published must be indicated by a reference.

BulletResults and Discussion

Indicate the main original results of the research and discussing them. References will be indicated in text in squared brackets, by consecutive numbers [1,3-6]. The full reference should be given in a list at the end of the paper in order of appearance, indicating the full journal names (see examples below); do not use auto-numbering or bullets.


On the basis of the original researches, pointing the main conclusion of the work.


Acknowledgments of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section before the reference list. The names of funding organizations should be written in full. If it’s necessary, write the acknowledgements with TNR 10 pt.
