The manuscripts are accepted in a form processed by a text editor, preferably by MS Word (or an editor fully compatible with MS Word), in accordance with the following arrangements and modifications:

  • Paper size: A4.
  • All borders: 2.5 cm.
  • Font size: in accordance with the template.
  • Line spacing: 1
  • Spaces before and after: 0 points.
  • Title of the manuscript, abstract and keywords, names of the author(s) in capital letters.
  • Text and annexes (tables, graphs, etc.) must be processed using SI units.
  • Abbreviations are used only if the abbreviation is internationally valid. The abbreviation must be explained with its first use. It is not recommended to use abbreviations in the title of the work.
  • Latin words are written in italics, not in bolds.
  • Distinguish between a dash ( – ) and hyphen (-). Hyphen is used to express a number range (5-11 years, 1918-1948), and to express that the expressions connected form a whole (technical-economic, etc.). Dash is used as a symbol for minus or as a dash in the text.
  • For number, use “ , “ to separate thousands (e.g. 48,720 EUR). For decimal numbers, use decimal point (0.85).
  • There is no space character between % and a number (e.g. 55%).
  • Equations, formulas, and mathematical symbols should be set by the equations editor (mathematical symbols). All formulas must be numbered in the ascending order, and must be centred.
  • The breakdown of items is uniform – see the template for manuscripts.
  • Use “Bind to next” and “Insert a page break” instead of using Enter.

The width of a table must not exceed 160 mm. The title is placed above the table. Additional information is given below the table (before the source) in the following format: “Note: XXX.”

Graphs
Graphs should be created using Microsoft Office (Excel, Microsoft Graph). The width of a graph or figure must not exceed 160 mm. The number and name of a figure or graph must be written above them. Figures and graphs created using other programmes and inserted as objects must meet the following criteria:

  • data and descriptions in the graph must be written using the font size not higher than 8.

  • Name of a table is given in the following format: “Tab. 1:“, while the names of figures or graphs are given as follows: ”Figure 1:“, or “Graph 1:“.
  • In tables, font size 10 is used. In special cases, smaller font size can be used.
  • Numeric values in the tables shall be aligned to the right.
  • Tables should not be split into multiple pages (only in the case of longer tables; however, these are not recommended).

  • Source is always indicated by a capital letter (first letter) with a full stop at the end (e.g. “Source: Name of the source.”
  • Figures and graphs must be of good quality, the labels must be clearly visible, not blurred.
  • Tables are blocked, figures and graphs are centred.
  • No title (including the names of tables, figures or graphs) must be at the end of a page.
