You should leave 8 mm of space above the abstract and 10 mm after the abstract. The heading Abstract should be typed in bold 9-point Arial. The body of the abstract should be typed in normal 9-point Times in a single paragraph, immediately following the heading. The text should be set to 1 line spacing. The abstract should be centred across the page, indented 17 mm from the left and right page margins and justified. It should not normally exceed 200 words.

  1. Page layout

Use 170 x 250 mm paper size (W x H mm) and adjust the margins to those shown in the Table 1. The final printed area will be A130 x 210 mm. Do not add any page numbers.

Table 1. Setting Word’s margins: Top – 24 mm, Bottom – 6 mm, Left – 20 mm, Right – 20 mm

1.1. Formatting the title, authors and affiliations

1.1.1. Formatting the title

The title is set in bold 16-point Arial, justified. The first letter of the title should be capitalised with the rest in lower case. You should leave 22 mm of space above the title and 6 mm after the title.

1.1.2. Formatting author names and author affiliations

The style for the names is First Names, typed in italic 10-point Times, then Last Name, typed in 10-point Times, with a comma after all except the last author, which is separated by comma + “and”. Do not use academic titles.

Affiliations of authors should be typed in 9-point Times. They should be preceded by a numerical superscript corresponding to the same superscript after the name of the author concerned. Please ensure that affiliations are as full and complete as possible and include the country.

1.2. Formatting the text

The text of your paper should be formatted as follows:

– 10-point Times, Times Roman or Times New Roman.

– The text should be set to single line spacing.

– Paragraphs should be justified.

– The first paragraph after a section or subsection should not be indented; subsequent paragraphs should be indented by 5 mm.

The use of sections to divide the text of the paper is optional and left as a decision for the author. Where the author wishes to divide the paper into sections the formatting shown in Table 2 should be used.

Table 2. Formatting sections, subsections and subsubsections.

6 mm before 3 mm after

1, 2, 3, etc.


10-point Arial bold

6 mm before 3 mm after

1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc.


10-point Arial Italic

6 mm before 3 mm after

1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.3, etc.


  1. Figures and tables

Figures and tables, as originals of good quality and well contrasted, are to be in their final form, ready for reproduction, pasted in the appropriate place in the text. Try to ensure that the size of the text in your figures is approximately the same size as the main text (10 point). Try to ensure that lines are no thinner than 0.25 point.

2.1. Captions/numbering

Captions should be typed in 9-point Times. They should be centred above the tables and flush left beneath the figures.

2.2. Positioning

Place the figure as close as possible after the point where it is first referenced in the text. If there is a large number of figures and tables, it might be necessary to place some before their text citation.

2.3. Colour illustrations

You are free to use colour illustrations for the online version of the proceedings, but any print version will be printed in black and white unless special arrangements have been made with the conference organiser. Please check whether or not this is the case. If the print version will be black and white only, you should check your figure captions carefully and remove any reference to colour in the illustration and text. In addition, some colour figures will degrade or suffer loss of information when converted to black and white, and this should be considered when preparing them.

  1. Equations and mathematics

Equations should be centred and should be numbered with the number on the right-hand side.

Ts (l,t) = Tg (l,t)                                                     (1)

Ts (l,t) = Tg (l,t) Tb (x ® – bt) = 0                   (2)

Use italics for variables (u) and bold (u) for vectors. The order for brackets should be {[()]}, except where brackets have special significance.

The acknowledgements should be typed in 9-point Times, without title.


Online references will be linked to their original source, only if possible. To enable this linking extra care should be taken when preparing reference lists.

References should be cited in the text by placing sequential numbers in brackets (for example, [1], [2, 5, 7], [8-10]). They should be numbered in the order in which they are cited. A complete reference should provide enough information to locate the article. References to printed journal articles should typically contain:

  • The authors, in the form: initials of the first names followed by last name (only the first letter capitalized with full stops after the initials),
  • The journal title (abbreviated),
  • The volume number (bold type),
  • The article number or the page numbers,
  • The year of publication (in brackets).

Authors should use the forms shown in Table 3 in the final reference list.

Title page:

Includes the title of the article, author’s name (no scientific degrees) and the author’s affiliation. The affiliation should comprise the department, institution (usually university or company), city, and state (or country). The title page should include the name and complete mailing address, telephone number, fax number, and email address of the corresponding author.


A structured abstract of fewer than 200 words is required for all original contributions, and should be arranged, in one paragraph, under the following headings: PURPOSE, METHODS, RESULTS, CONCLUSIONS. Review articles also require an abstract, which need not be organized under these headings. No references should be included in the abstract.

Key words: not used in the title should be included (up to 8)

Full-length papers:

Manuscripts, written in English, together with a cover letter from the corresponding author should be submitted to the E-mail of the journal as a text file saved in Microsoft Word, Rich Text Format (RTF), or Text/ASCII. All contributors are kindly requested to send an electronic manuscript. Spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, spacing, length, and consistency of usage in form and descriptions should be checked before submission. Please also check References for accuracy. Ensure that all figures and tables are mentioned in the text, and that all references are cited in the text. Nonconforming manuscripts (e.g., improper format, excessive length) may be returned for technical revision prior to undergoing peer review.

Images must be saved as separate, stand-alone files, not embedded as part of the text file. It is preferable to submit vector-based images, created at 100% image size. File formats in order of preference are JPEG, GIF, TIFF, EPS, BMP.

General Format:

The entire text, including title page, abstract, figure and table legends and the reference list, should be typed double-spaced on one side of standard A4 or 8,5 x 11 inches, left aligned. Each element of the manuscript-title page, abstract, text, references, tables, legends-should begin on a new page. All pages should be numbered.

Headings should be bold, capitalized, left aligned. Text should be set in Times New Roman font, 11 points. Leave only one (1) space after periods. Paragraphs should not be indented; nor should there be any blank lines between them. Use line returns only at the end of paragraphs. Do not use tabs or spaces to create indents. Use the Symbol font for symbols and special characters. Do not use equation editors or footnoting utilities in your RTF files. Save equations as images. Equations should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals in parentheses on the right hand side of the page.

Order the sections comprising the manuscript as follows: title, author(s), address, abstract, key words, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion, acknowledgments, conclusion and references.


Tables should be on a separate page, double-spaced, numbered consecutively (with Arabic numerals), referred to by number in the text and designed to fit the page size of the Journal. Use tabs, not spaces, in delineating columns. Each table must have a brief title (bold font), left aligned, and footnotes should appear below the main table text. Indicate each table location within the manuscript. Use tables, not vertical lines, to separate columns.



Illustrations/figures (photographs, drawings, diagrams, and charts) are to be each in a single file, numbered in one consecutive series of Arabic numerals in the order in which they are cited in the text, and designed to fit page size of the Journal. The caption should be typed underneath each illustration and their location indicated in the manuscript. One set of high-quality photographs and drawing must be included for reproduction. Mark the figures top finely with a pencil and the number and authors name on the back. All illustrations are to be supplied in either TIFF, JPEG or GIF format in black and white. Color illustrations are welcome, but authors must pay the processing costs ($30 per illustration). Legends must be typed together, double-spaced, on separate page (placed after the references) and numbered to match the figure numbers.


All acknowledgments (including those for grant and financial support) should be typed in one paragraph directly preceding the reference section. Authors of manuscripts submitted to TJS are requested to state the source of all funding which enabled the research.


Try to use abbreviations sparingly. When used extensively, provide a list of all nonstandard abbreviations, on a separate page before the reference section. Use the metric system for all measurements without periods (cm, ml, s). Define all symbols used in equations and formulas. When symbols are used extensively, include a list of all symbols in the notation section. Do not abbreviate the word “Figure” or “Table” in titles or text.


Manuscripts are to be no longer than six to seven published journal pages. As a general rule, this means that manuscripts are to be limited to approximately 15 double-spaced typewritten pages (alongside with the abstract, the list of references, tables, figures and other appendices). Longer submissions will be considered, but will be accepted only when they possess exceptional merit.

Mini-review papers:

These papers should be approximately 18-20 double-spaced typewritten pages. The reference list need not be exhaustive, but should include the most significant articles.


References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are cited in the text. Cite in the text by the appropriate Arabic numeral enclosed in parentheses, e.g., (1) or (2-5), not super- or subscripted. References to unpublished personal communications should be avoided. Abbreviations for journal names should conform to those in the Bibliographic Guide for Editors and Authors (American Chemical Society, Washington, D.C.). The references should conform to the following style and punctuation:
