Details of an Article

Scientific article must be an experiment based publication. While deciding to use this form of communication, author should avoid a long and descriptive introduction and focus on describing the results and their impact on the scientific world.

Monograph article might be a result of experiments, so-called an experiment based article or a result of a literature review, so-called a review article. Please note that it is possible to prepare a paper mixing these two formats in one monograph paper.

Basic requirements

Scientific article: the paper should be minimum 10000 characters long (with spaces) or minimum 5 pages long (including figures and a literature list).

Monograph article: the paper should be minimum 20000 characters long (with spaces) or minimum 10 pages long (including figures and a literature list).
