Manuscript Preparation

Manuscript length should be 6 to 18 pages. Science Publishing Group can exceptionally accept shorter or longer manuscripts, provided that the scientific content is of high value. No additional page charges are required if a manuscript is substantially longer than 17 pages.

All submitted manuscripts must include the following items:

  • • Title
  • • List of authors, their affiliations and email addresses
  • • Abstract
  • • Introduction
  • • Main body
  • • Results and discussion
  • • Conclusions
  • • Acknowledgments (optional)
  • • References

Title - Make sure that the title is specific and concise. Titles should be presented in title case - all words except the first word should be in lower case letters.

List of authors, their affiliations and email addresses - Provide the full names and affiliations of all the authors. Affiliations should include department, university or organization, city, and country. One of the authors should be designated as the corresponding author, and their email address needs to be included.

Abstract - The abstract should briefly introduce the manuscript, not exceeding 400 words. No citations should be included in the abstract.

Keywords - At least 3 keywords or phrases should be included and must be separated by commas to distinguish them.

Introduction - The introduction section should provide a context for your manuscript. When preparing the introduction, please bear in mind that some readers will not be experts in your field of research.

Main body - the main body part should include the main proposed ideas, results and discussions.

Conclusions - A conclusion is where you summarize the paper's findings and generalize their importance, discuss ambiguous data, and recommend further research. An effective conclusion should provide closure for a paper, leaving the reader feeling satisfied that the concepts have been fully explained.

Acknowledgments - You as the author are free to decide whether to include acknowledgments or not. Usually, the acknowledgments section includes the names of people who in some way contributed to the work, but do not fit the criteria to be listed as the authors. This section of your manuscript can also include information about funding sources.

References - Science Publishing Group uses the numbered citation method for reference formatting, with sequential numbering in the text, and respective ordering in a list at the end of the paper.

The list should contain at least 20 references and should be arranged in the order of citation in text. List only one reference per reference number. In the text, each reference number should be enclosed by square brackets. Citations of references may be given simply as "in [1] ...". Similarly, it is not necessary to mention the authors of a reference, unless the mention is relevant to the text.

Multiple citations within a single set of brackets should be separated by commas. Where there are three or more sequential citations, they should be given as a range [2,7-9,13].
