In order to achieve rapid publication, the texts will be printed directly from the author's typescripts. The authors are kindly requested to observe the following instructions in manuscripts preparation.
Some flexibility of presentation will be allowed but authors are urged to arrange the subject matter clearly under such headings as Introduction, Experimental details, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, References, etc. Each paper should have an abstract (approximately 2000 characters). In addition the author is requested to submit Keywords of the paper (5 - 10 words).
The length of a paper text is not limited but it should be approximately 6 pages including figures, references and abstract. Not less than 75-80% the last page should be filled.
The files should be saved in the native format of the word processing program used (preferably Microsoft Word).
Units SI units must be used in the text, tables and graphs.
Illustrations Figures, tables and formulas should be arranged in such a way that they would fit into one (84 mm width) or two columns. Graphs should be prepared by computer (word processor Microsoft Word or compatible).
One line spacing should separate the figures and tables from the text.
Formulae All mathematical expressions should be computer typed. Numbers that identify mathematical expressions should be enclosed in parentheses. Equations that might extend beyond the width of one column (84 mm) should be fitted into two columns or should be rephrased to go on two or more lines within the column width.
One line spacing should separate mathematical expressions from the text.
Software specifications Manuscript should be typed with single spacing using Microsoft Word word processor (preferably). Times New Roman font should be used. The text should be typed in two columns on A4 format sheets; spacing between columns should be 6 mm. The following margins should be ensured:

Italic characters should be used for symbols from the figures and graphs mentioned in the text.
References References should be numbered consecutively (numerals in square brackets) through the text and collected together in a reference list at the end of the paper.
