Instructions for Authors

We encourage you to submit high-quality, original works that have not been published elsewhere, nor are currently under consideration in any other refereed journal. You may submit papers that have been presented in conferences only if the papers have been thoroughly revised or extended. A major aim of this journal is to minimize the time for paper processing and to expedite printing; therefore, electronic submission of papers using the online editorial system is strongly recommended. All correspondence, including notification of the Editor's decision and requests for revision, takes place by e-mail, removing the need for a hard-copy paper trail.

It is a condition of publication that all papers must be written in clear and grammatically correct English. Submit an electronic copy of your paper, along with the originals of illustrations, drawings, and tables using the online editorial system.

Prior to submitting your paper, please follow the instructions given in Paper Preparation Instruction. For your paper preparation, you can use the template designed in accordance with the journal's style. LaTeX template is also now available in beta version.

Please, indicate clearly who is responsible for correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication. Ensure that telephone and fax numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address. Please consult a recent journal paper for style.

If you need any further help, please do not hesitate to contact the Executive Editor.


Dear authors, due to the fact that Microsoft does not support "Microsoft Equation 3.0" anymore, we accept only equations written by MathType.
