Preparation of manuscripts
Language: Manuscript should be written in English.

All pages of the manuscript should be numbered. Import tables and figures into the text. Abbreviations and symbols-notation should be explained at first appearing, or on a separate list at the end of manuscript.

General format
The manuscript should contain the following in this order: Title page, abstract and key words, introduction, experimental, results and discussion, conclusion, acknowledgement and references.
