+ Abstract (Essentially information of the work briefly in maximum 150 words. Technical details and scientific backgrounds should be not specified at this point).
+ Keywords (5-10 Keywords need to be added. In particular, reasonably common keywords within the subject discipline are suggested).
+ Introduction (In the introduction part, authors must carefully analysed the literature and provide the reason as to why are need to do this research. The current state of the research field should be reviewed carefully and key publications cited. Authors must also clearly state the novelty of the paper in this part and specify the differences between this work and previously published works. Key goals of the work should be precisely specified. This part should be prepared resonable for broad range of readers).
+ Results and discussion (In the case of experimental works).
+ Discussion (In the case of review works).
+ Material and methods (In the case of experimental works. Commercial sources and / or methods of obtaining all materials for research should be precisely specified. The research methodology should be described in such a way as to ensure full reproducibility of the experiments).
+ Conclusions (The short summary of the results obtained. The citation of extended works within this sections is forbidden. Technical details should be not specified at this point).
+ Acknowledgements (If necessary).

Peer review process
In the first stage of the review process, the submitted article is processed for the originality and the content of the paper. This part of the process is accomplished inside the firm and we check for similar articles to make sure the work is not published under similar titles with possibly other notations. Additionally, figures should be original and not be copied from other papers and they must be characterised by good quality and resolution. All equations must be typeset properly and they should not be in figure format. In addition, all tables must be in table format. The problems within this area can determine the return of the article to Authors. The low level of the originality or detection of the plagiarism can determine the rejection of the article without possibility of resubmission.
In the next stage, the article is examined via peer-review process, involving two or more reviewers recruiting from specialists of respective scientific disciplines. The recommendations as follow are possible:
+ reject without the possibility of resubmission (low originality, plagiarism, low scientific value),
+ reject with the possibility of resubmission (after fundamental rewriting the manuscript and/or additional experiments),
+ major revision (additional experiments are necessary, or important edition of the interpretation of results etc. – after this recommendation, re-review process is preferred),
+ minor revision (technical details must be improved, additional description of results, language standard – after this recommendation, re-review process is not preferred and depend of the editor decision),
+ accept (paper should be accepted in the current form).
