Article Structure
Title, concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible. Author names and affiliations. Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the e-mail address of each author. 

A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.Abstract should commence with a clear introduction of two or three sentences mentioning background of research. Subsequently, state the general problem of the research, followed by results/main findings that directly answer the problem. Give one or two sentence(s) to discuss the finding(s) or prospective(s).

Authors are invited to submit maximum 6 keywords associated with their paper.

State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.Give a description (local and scientific name) of the studied organism(s).

Mention when and where research is conducted. Provide sufficient detail to allow the method to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described. Please describe whether the study is experimental or exploration. 

Results should be clear and concise. State the obtained results based on the methods. Do not present the same data in both table and graph format. Means should be accompanied by standard deviation. Discussion should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. Discuss your data by comparing the current reported data with previous results, but avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature. Highlight similarities, as well as differences, and the uniqueness of your findings.

End the discussion by giving a conclusion and future research in that particular topic.

Text: All citations in the text should refer to:
1. Single author: the author's name (without initials, unless there is ambiguity) and the year of publication;
2. Two authors: both authors' names and the year of publication;
3. Three or more authors: first author's name followed by 'et al.' and the year of publication.
Citations may be made directly (or parenthetically). Groups of references should be listed first alphabetically, then chronologically.
List: References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters 'a', 'b', 'c', etc., placed after the year of publication.
