Text formatting rules.
Text Formatting
Manuscripts should be submitted in Word.
            Use following functions: a normal, plain font (e.g., 12-point Times Roman) for text; field functions. (25 mm for all sides); paragraph indent (10 mm).
Units of measurement in the article should be expressed in the International System of Units (SI); the equation editor or Math Type for equations.
Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter.
Always use footnotes instead of endnotes.
Acknowledgments of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section before the reference list. The names of funding organizations should be written in full.
Reference citations in the text should be identified by numbers in square brackets. Some examples:
 1. The most promising approach is the use as cavitands natural cyclic dextrin having the internal hydrophobic area [7].
The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Used literature sources should be presented and listed in full at the end of the paper. References to mentioned literature in the text are obligatory and are given in square brackets. The numbering of the sources is in the order mentioned in the text.
The entries in the list should be numbered consecutively.

Main guides for creation tables in text:
Always use tabular function, instead of summary tables to make tables; all tables in the text should have names and continuous numbering; abbreviations of words in the tables are not allowed; all tables are to be numbered using Arabic numerals; tables should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order; for each table, please supply a table caption (title) explaining the components of the table; identify any previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference at the end of the table caption.
Electronic Figure Submission
§ Supply all figures electronically.
  Keep following regulations for electronic figures:
Bitmap formats: drawings and photographs, scanned or prepared in Photoshop, Paintbrush, Corel Photo paint  must have a resolving capacity of  not less than 700 dpi, JPG format.
Vector formats: vector drawings are to be made with Microsoft Office or CorelDraw, drawings should have lines thickness of not less than 0,8 mm, the text in them can be typed in Times New Roman pt. It is not recommended to convert graphics from CorelDraw to bitmap formats. Built-in - 300 dpi, JPG format.
Do not use faint lines and/or lettering and check that all lines and lettering within the figures are legible at final size.
Figure Numbering
Figure parts should be denoted by lowercase letters (a, b, c, etc.).
All figures are to be numbered using Arabic numerals.
Figures should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order.
If an appendix appears in your article and it contains one or more figures, continue the consecutive numbering of the main text.
Figure Captions
Each figure should have a concise caption describing accurately what the figure depicts. Include the captions in the text file of the manuscript, not in the figure file.
Identify previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference citation at the end of the figure caption.
Identify all elements found in the figure in the figure caption; and use boxes, circles, etc., as coordinate points in graphs.
No punctuation is to be included after the number, nor is any punctuation to be placed at the end of the caption.
Manuscripts that are accepted for publication will be checked by our copyeditors for spelling and formal style.
