Materials and methods. Include sufficient details for the work to be repeated. Where specific equipment and materials are named, the manufacturer’s details (name, city and country) should be given so that readers can trace specifications by contacting the manufacturer. Where commercially available software has been used, details of the supplier should be given in brackets or the reference given in full in the reference list.

Results and Discussion. State the results of experimental or modelling work, drawing attention to important details in tables and figures and discuss them intensively by citing other refrences.

Conclusion. Give the main findings and conclude the result and discussion

Acknowledgements. Be brief. If authors refer to themselves as recipients of assistance or funding, they should do so by their initials separated by points (e.g. J.B.T.). Do not acknowledge Editors by name.

References (see Manuscript Specifications below).
