Guide for Authors
FEI STU Bratislava
The title of article
should be brief and the full authors name and surname should by indicated
together with the affiliation and address. Respective addresses of
co-authors must be clearly cross-referenced. The body of the manuscript
should be preceded by an abstract limited to about 8 lines, followed by up
to 6 keywords. The papers should be reasonably subdivided into sections
and, if necessary, to subsections. For scientific contributions the
following scheme is recommended.
1 INTRODUCTION - the topic
of the article should be defined clearly and short review of published
relevant solutions and comparison with the authors results should be given.
2 THEORETICAL PART - the
author presents his considerations and ideas, mathematical formulae and
their derivation. All information taken from other authors or critical
comments on other works should be accompanied by exact references.
3 EXPERIMENTAL PART -
includes the data on the measuring method and instruments as well as
experimental results. In purely theoretical works this part is omitted.
4 DISCUSSION - presents a
critical analysis, interpretation and evaluation of the obtained results.
5 CONCLUSION - the
results should be summarized briefly and authors scientific contribution
should be indicated.
6 REFERENCES - must be
fully and accurately documented and conform to standard accepted in other
journals. References should be quoted in the text in square brackets and
listed at the end of the paper in the order they have appeared in the text.
7 AUTHOR(S) BIOGRAPHY -
10 to 15 lines about the author(s). The recommended content is: (titles, in
parentheses) the year and place of birth, type of education and scientific
degrees attained (field and year). Former and present affiliations and
professional (research) interests and activities.
The aim of publishing
short scientific communications is to ensure the priority, through
publishing, even though this might be at a cost of completeness in treating
and discussing the topic.
The short communication
need not to have all sections recommended for original scientific articles.
At the end, again the authors’ original contribution should be stated
No hard copies of the
manuscript are required, however it is welcomed if manuscripts, 80 types on
the line and 35 lines a page in a single-column format are submitted. This
corresponds to Times 11pt font, and approximately one such a page (plane
text, without figures) would fit to one Journal page.
Figures and illustrations
are required to be PC processed. It is appreciated if they are also
embedded into the text for the reviewers’ convenience, but in any case the
figure captions should be given in the text near the positions where the
figures are to appear. Beside this, figures and illustrations should be
delivered all in one separate document (file). Please send the matters
exclusively by E-mail.
Concerning the graphs, we
prefer vector formats eg .eps, .wmf, .cgm, .cdr, bitmap
formats as .pcx, .bmp, .tif or any other should be avoided except in case of
submitting photographs or like pictures. Please realize that sending a
bitmap picture as an *.eps file would not do! Further, consider that the
figures can be of one-column width (usually less than 8 cm) or,
exceptionally (not exceeding 16 cm) of two-column width. The lettering
should be done using Times New Roman font.
Typed tables are not
regarded as figures. They have to be numbered separately (Tab.1, Tab.2, etc)
with all necessary text or comments placed above them.
Every author will receive
free issue of the Journal and author(s) will be provided with 10 reprints
per the article.
After the evaluation by
two independent peer reviewers and eventual changes made in submitted
papers, please, return the final version, via E-mail, including the
figures (in above listed formats) as an MS-Word file (not a *.pdf) or
preferably prepared by LaTeX or TeX editor since the latter is used for
the Journal composition.
