  • Introduction: it should state the objectives of the research and the relevance of the scientific problem; it should review the condition of the issue and review references; it should also give the theoretical framework of the research, lead to research questions and hypotheses.
  • Chapters: text, tables, figures, formulae with references, data source references. This part may be divided into balanced sub-parts.
  • Tables: Tables inserted in the text should be black and white and editable (tables have to be formatted as a text, not as picture). Tables should be quoted in the text. Tables in the paper shall be given in Arabic numerals. The word ‘Table’ and number are placed at the right margin. The table’s title is centered in a new paragraph. Tables in size over a full page are not recommended. Under the table, there should be the source given from which the information was derived or the information that it is the author’s study or that it is a study based on other authors’ works.

  • Referencesin text: All references within the text should be placed in parentheses containing the author’s surname followed by the year of publication. If the sentence already includes the author’s name, then it is only necessary to put the year in parentheses. When citing several authors, use a semicolon to separate the references: (Verlinde 2009; Atkins & Rundell 2008). For citing page numbers use the following format: (Rundell 2012: 49) or (Rundell 2012: 49-51). When the reference has more than three authors, only cite the name of the first author followed by et al.

  • Bibliography: All sources stated in the list have to be cited in the text. The bibliography shall be arranged in the alphabetical order in one joint list and numbered. References to the literature used in the text (and the final bibliography) should be standardised to the Harvard System of short references
