  • Abstracts must be single spaced with a clear line between paragraphs.
  • Format as follows: start with Title, Authors names and affiliations, Keywords, Email of first author and leave one line space and then type in main text.
  • Check the text that it is free of typographical and grammatical errors.
  • Tables, graphs, images and references can be included.
  • Standard abbreviations may be used for common terms only. Otherwise, abbreviations should be explained after the first full use.
  • Abbreviations may be used in the title, provided explained in full in the body of the abstract.
  • Scientific symbols must be spelt out in full English; symbols must not be used within abstracts.
