Author Guidelines

Author Guidelines

Paper title – a concise and comprehensible title reflecting the paper content, not longer than 150 characters, in English.

Authors – presented with the first name and the surname. In case of more authors from several institutions, the number corresponding with the same number in a list of places of works

Authors´ affiliation – introduces the official English name of institution. In case of several authors from different places of work, a number corresponding with the same number in a list of authors is presented at their place of work.

Abstract – a short summary of the whole paper including a clearly defined aim, used methods and results. A length should be maximally 160 words.

Key words – maximally 5 words describing the fundamental of the paper

Introduction – should contain main reasons for realization of the research, aims of the work as well as review of current knowledge of solved problems.

Literature Review – represents the theoretical core of an article. In this section, we will discuss the purpose of a literature review. We will also consider how one should go about to find appropriate literature on which to base a literature review and how this information should be managed. Finally, we will answer four questions that first-time researchers often battle with when compiling a literature review.

Methods – introduction of all used data. Ways of data quality verification. Used analytical and statistical methods. Only original methods should be explained in details, in other cases original papers should be referenced and, if relevant, the differences from the original works might be briefly commented.

Results and discussion – presentation of results should be transparent, preferably expressed in the form of tables and graphs with an appropriate commentary; the author should compare achieved results with data published by other authors. Here, it is essential to emphasize the significance of obtained results and eventually to open new questions to be solved. It is recommended to include a brief evaluation at the end of the section – whether and how the set target was achieved, what are the conclusions of the authors etc.

Conclusion - around a half of page.

Author´s address – the author should include his or her full name, including all academic, scientific and pedagogic titles and detailed address of the institution with postal code, phone, fax numbers and/or e-mail address and ORCID (if author has). The mentioned author is responsible for any correspondence with the editorial office.

References – a list of referred reviewed periodicals in numbering order. All references referred to in the article text must be listed in the References section. The references shall contain at least 10 (ten) references from 80% of primary sources (scientific journals, conference proceedings, research reference books) which are published within 5 (five) year.

References should be written following the order they appear in the text, using Arabic numbers in square brackets. The template will number citations consecutively within brackets [1]. The sentence punctuation follows the bracket [2]. Refer simply to the reference number, as in [3]—do not use “Ref. [3]” or “reference [3]” except at the beginning of a sentence: “Reference [3] was the first ...”. This journal uses IEEE citation format.

Submission of papers
Papers could be submitted continuously; all requirements are included in the paper template.
Please, send the paper as a full text version (including tables, graphs, pictures, etc.) for review purpose. Graphs, figures and tables must be sent as separate files too. Papers are accepted only in .doc, .docx or .rtf formats. Needed formats for figures are JPG, PNG or TIF (in resolution 300 dpi). Graphs have to be also sent in .xls or .xlsx format including source data. All graphs and figures have to be numbered in the order of their placement in the text.

Maximal length of the whole paper including pictures, graphs, tables and references should be 10 norm-pages

All papers are submitted to a blind peer review process before publication. Reviewer’s overall recommendation can be as follows:

• Accept the paper without revision. The paper is forwarded to the Editorial Board to be accepted for publication in the journal.
• Accept the paper with a minor revision. Reviewers’ suggestions and comments are sent via notification email to the corresponding author‘s e-mail address. The authors should correct the paper according to the comments and re-submit the paper again via electronic submission system; all changes should be described in order for the editor to be able to follow them and confirm their adoption. It is author’s right to refuse some reviewers’ comments; in such a case, s/he has to clarify his/her viewpoints in an accompanying text document that is submitted together with the final version of the paper.
• Reject the paper. The paper will not be published in the journal. Reviewers’ reasons for the rejection of the paper are sent via notification email to the corresponding author‘s e-mail address.

As soon as the paper is published, the corresponding author obtains a notification email for correction of final version of the paper in Portable Document Format (.pdf) for download via electronic submission system. After approving and correction is needed to confirm the declaration of the author.

The submission of a paper will imply that, if accepted for publication, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in any language, without the consent of the Publisher. Before publication, authors will be asked to complete a copyright release, giving the publisher permission to publish the paper in a specific issue of this journal. Overall copyright ownership of the paper, however, remains with the author/s. It is the authors' responsibility to obtain written permission to quote material that has appeared in another publication.
