    The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest.

    Author Contributions
    Please, insert author contributions according with Redit (Contributor Roles Taxonomy). RediT (Contributor Roles Taxonomy) is a high-level taxonomy, including 14 roles, that can be used to represent the roles typically played by contributors to research outputs. More about Redit can be found at
    Example of author contributions:

    Conceptualization, G.E.D., S.E.G. and T.E.C.; methodology, G.E.D.; software, S.E.G.; formal analysis, G.E.D. and S.E.G.; writing—original draft preparation, G.E.D. and S.E.G.; writing—review and editing, T.E.C. and S.E.G. All authors have read and agreed to the published version of the manuscript.
     Appendices - If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on. Similarly for tables and figures: Table A.1; Fig. A.1, etc.

    Acknowledgments - Collate acknowledgments in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proofreading the article, etc.).

    Footnotes and abbreviations - Footnotes should be avoided. Abbreviations should also be avoided, except from exceptionally usual. If used, footnotes should only contain additional text (comment), and not information about sources used. The abbreviations stated in tables and pictures should be explained.

    5. Preparing Figures, Schemes, and Tables
  • Figures and schemes in common formats are accepted, however, MS Word, TIFF, JPEG, EPS, and PDF are preferred.
  • All Figures, Schemes, and Tables should be inserted into the main text close to their first citation and must be numbered following their number of appearances (Figure 1, Scheme I, Figure 2, Scheme II, Table 1, ).
  • All Figures, Schemes, and Tables should have a short explanatory title and caption.
  • The authors should use the Table option of Microsoft Word to create tables. In tables, avoid vertical lines. Please see the sample below:
  1. References

The authors must cite the relevant literature both in the text and attached references. The authors must cite the relevant literature both in the text and references. For example, Khan, H., Khan, I., & Binh, T. T. (2020).
