Author guidelines


Original scientific papers report unpublished results of completed original scientific research. Experimental data should be presented in a way that enables reproduction and verification of analyses and deductions on which the conclusions are based. Manuscripts should normally not exceed 6000 words.
Short communications should also contain completed but briefly presented results of original scientific research. Manuscripts should normally not exceed 2000 words.

Reviews are submitted at the invitation of the Editorial Board. They should be critical surveys of an area in which preferably the author himself is active. The reviews can be longer than typical research articles but should generally be limited to 10 000 words including references, tables and figures.

Professional papers report on useful practical results that are not original but help the results of the original scientific research to be adopted into scientific and production use. Manuscripts should normally not exceed 4000 words.


Prepare the entire manuscript in double-space typing, on numbered pages of A4 format with margins of 2.5 cm on each side. Do not use footnotes.

The papers should be written in the shortest possible way and without unnecessary repetition. The original scientific papers, short communications and reviews should be written in English. Abstract and key words in Macedonian, must accompany each manuscript.
