Generally, all papers should be divided into the following sections:

TITLE: Should be as short as possible, informative and written in capital letters, bold type, and font 12 pt. Authors surname and initial of authors’ name without academic titles should be placed below the title. Each authors name should be followed by an exponent if authors do not work in the same institution (bold and italic type, font 11 pt).

SUMMARY: Is cited and published in international databases, so it must be written in informative way and has to be able to stand alone. A Summary should include main objectives, materials, results and short conclusion of the paper. It should be written in bold and italic type, font 10 pt, with limit of 200 words. Up to six keywords is recommended, for incorporating into information systems, which must be written in bold and italic type, font 10 pt.

INTRODUCTION: Should give a brief introduction to the research problem, short review of relevant literature with reference to the current knowledge about the problem and at the end should present the scientific questions (objectives/aims) of proposed paper.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Material and Methods should be written with enough details to allow others to repeat the experiment. New or modified methods should be described in details whereas for widely familiar methods reference should be cited.

RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: Obtained results should be presented graphically or in tables together with their statistical evaluation. Results should be interpreted objectively and confronted with results of other authors. Care should be taken in avoiding repeated data in tables, graphs and again in the text.

CONCLUSION: Contains synthesis of the research and results, and provides answers to proposed scientific questions.

REFERENCES: References should be numbered and listed alphabetically according to the surname of the first author. The APA (American Psychological Association) referencing style should be used to cite all sources and DOI number must be added if a paper has it.
