    Authors should create the manuscripts using the templates of the certain formats. Please, download Word templates below:

      • Article title. Best article titles bear short, clear and distinctive messages.
      • Authors and their affiliated institutions, linked by superscript numbers, should be listed beneath the title on the opening page of the manuscript.
      • Abstract of an original study should start with some brief background information and statement of the study’s AIMS, followed by MATERIALS & METHODS and finishing with the RESULTS. The closing sentence should outline the main CONCLUSIONS of the study in the most comprehensible terms. Please note that your abstract should be 300 words or less.
      • Choice of keywords. MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) thesaurus is a preferred source for choosing keywords.
