4. Conclusions should summarize the results obtained, and suggest prospects for future research in the area.

5. References.

The paper manuscript should be carefully proofread. It should also contain the statement “the paper has not been previously submitted for publication”. All contributing authors should sign the paper.

Please submit an electronic copy of the paper. Use A4 (210×297 mm) white paper. Apply the following margins: 15 mm (left), 30 mm (top and bottom), 15 mm (right). The paper should be single-spaced. Type your text in Times New Roman, font size 11 pt, full justification, no empty spaces on pages. Size of the paper, including figures, for reviews should not exceed 20 A4 pages, for regular papers 14, for letters 4 pages.

Please attach to the manuscript the following: a typed request for publishing a paper in the journal “Information and Telecommunication Sciences”, an abstract, author(s) information (last name, first name, middle name, orcid number(http://orcid.org/), the scholarly degrees, affiliation, job position, postal and e-mail addresses, phone numbers).

An electronic copy of the paper (on a disc or e-mailed one) should be in Microsoft Word (*. doc) version. This copy should contain a request for publishing a paper, the paper text with figures formatted according to these guidelines, figures, abstract, and author information as separate files).

Paper structure

Paper Title

Block paragraph, capital letters, font size 16 pt, bold-faced type, Times New Roman, center justification, single line spacing, no abbreviating or hyphenating.

(empty line, 11 pt, single space)

Abstract

Block paragraph. Do not type the word “abstract”. The abstract should not exceed 15 lines. Use Word for Windows (Microsoft), font size 10 pt, Times New Roman, full justification.

(empty line, 11 pt, single space)

The body of the paper should be in Microsoft Word for Windows version (*doc). Format your text as two columns, with an inter-column interval of 5 mm. Use 11 pt Times New Roman font size, regular line interval, full justification, automatic hyphenation, 5 mm paragraph indention, no empty spaces.

Illustrations to the paper are submitted as *.TIF files or *.JPG (black-white color, 400 dpi resolution, scale 1:1). Good quality is required to provide readability. Figures size should not exceed the size of a column or a page. Units of measurement are separated from the text by a comma. The figures should be numbered (for example, Fig. 1). Figures with a, b, … etc. parts should be of the same height and horizontally aligned. Each figure should be captioned below with a relevant figure number.

Captions should be in 10 pt Times New Roman font size, one interval (5 pt) below the figure, single spaced. A short caption (one line) is center justified to figure center. Longer ones (exceeding one line) are formatted as block paragraph, with full justification. The figures, as well as caption, are separated from the text with empty lines (5 pt): one on top and one below.

Tables should also be numbered, e.g. Table 1, Table 2, etc. The title of the table should start with a capital letter. Use 10 pt Times New Roman font size. Short captions should be center justified (one line). Longer captions (more than one line) should be block paragraph, with full justification. Use single space. The information in tables should not overlap the data presented by the graphs in figures.

Formulas are typed with the help of MathType software. The length of a typed formula should not exceed 80 mm. In the text, as well as in tables, Greek letters should be in upright letter font, Roman letters in italics. An exception are: upright letter font for operator symbols, e.g. grad, div, rot, p-Laplace operator, real part of a complex number Re, imaginary part of a complex number Im, bases of the natural logarithms e and standard functions, e.g. max, min, cos, arctan, exp, ln, log, sign etc. Vectors are typed in bold-faced font. In decimal fractions, the integer part is separated by a point. A formula should be center justified (block paragraph). Continuous numbering should be employed. Only formulas with references in the text should be used. Formulas numbers (in parentheses, font size 11 pt) are justified right of a column or page at one level with the formula. Between the formulas running one after another semicolon should be used. Very complex formulas should be divided in smaller parts not exceeding 80 mm, coming on the next lines. Dividing of the formulas should be at “=”, “+”, “-”, or “×” symbols. The formula coming on the next line should start with a relevant symbol at which it was separated. Each part of the compound formula should be taped in the formulas editor separately and should be center justified (block paragraph). Explaining symbols and numerical coefficients should come right under the formula, following a formula sequence. The first row of explanations starts with a word “where” (block paragraph). Any subsequent explanation is separated from a previous one with a semicolon and comes right after it. Example:

, (1)

where ; is the distance between the source and observation points; is wavelength in free space.

Formulas are separated from the text with a single space line (5 pt), one above and one below.

The titles of article parts are typed in bold-faced Times New Roman, font size 12 pt, center justified (block paragraph). Article parts titles are separated from the text with a single space line (5 pt).

References should list sources on recent developments in a research area. Number citations must be consecutively in square brackets [1]. Dissertations, unpublished papers, minor local publications are not included. The reference list starts with a key word “References” typed in bold-faced lower-case 12 pt Times New Roman font size, center justified (block paragraph). The word “References” is separated from the text with a single space line (5 pt), one on top and one below. The papers, monographs, books titles are given fully. Please provide the paper title, the periodical title, the publication year, the volume, pages details for a paper; the title, the year of publication, publishing house details, number of pages for a book.
