Editing requirements

1. The submission of a manuscript assume that the paper is not being offered for publication elsewhere.

2. Electronic manuscripts, IBM compatible, through e-mail: ad.banaduc@yahoo.com.

3. Papers should be written in simple, concise and objective Standard English. Authors whose native language is not English are strongly advised to have their manuscripts checked by an english-speaking colleague prior to submission.

4. No typing errors.

5. Original Papers should not exceed 20 single-spaced word processed pages, in the format/template requested by authors and received from the editors through email ad.banaduc@yahoo.com.

6. Paper should follow the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature and the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. Only taxa of generic and sub-generic ranks should be italicised.

7. Methods must be described shortly but precisely enough to permit replication. You are strongly encouraged not to display formulas, except for original indices or in case of ambiguities. When using statistical tests, also avoid formulas and secondary mathematical results. Specify the name of the test, the value of the final statistics, the level of probability and the decision.

8. The tables, figures, legends and captions, must be included in the desired place in the text ready for reproduction (no separate files) and restricted to absolute minimum number necessary for documentation. The tables should be numbered with Roman numerals and the figures with Arabian numerals. Both of them should have brief and self-explanatory titles.

9. Avoid footnotes.

10. Subscripts and superscripts should be clear.

11. Spell out numbers "one" through "nine" in expository text, but use digits in all other cases if possible.

12. Citations in text, give name(s) of the Authors(s), followed by the year of publication (in brackets). Where there are more than two authors name only the first, followed by et al. Ex: (Banarescu, 1999; Banarescu et al., 2001).

13. Abbreviations of journals should follow the World List of Scientific Periodicals or a similar work.

14. Sequentially arrangement of the manuscript.

  1. First page should contain:

These words should be written with boldface and upper case letters.

15. Primary titles should be written with boldface and upper case letters and on a separate line without indentation and numbering and with extra space above. For secondary titles use lower-case letters. Other subdivisions are not permitted.

16. Use of the metric system of measurement is preferable. Use the decimal system for precise measurement and relationship, common fractions for approximations. Use day/month/year sequence for dates: "1 March 2001". Omit space between initials of personal names: "J.W. Smith".

17. Sizes and quantities should be expressed in Système International (SI) units wherever possible. Chemical names should conform to the index guide of Chemical Abstracts.

25. All three short abstracts should enter in the first page of each paper. One short abstract should be in English, a second one in Romanian (the editors can help with translation), and a third one in German, or French, or Spanish.
