The body of the text should start with a brief Introduction, describing the paper’s significance. In the case of an original study, the body of the paper should follow a common structured approach to the description of the studies aim, its materials, methods and results, as well as Discussion and Conclusions sections.

Materials and Methods section identifies methods and procedures in sufficient detail to allow other scientists to reproduce the results. Identify the manufacturer of drugs, chemicals and equipment. When indicating binomial nomenclature of an organism for the first time, spell out the entire genus and species names and the author’s name. Subsequently the genus may be shortened to the first letter, followed by the entire species name.

Identify statistical procedures in sufficient detail to allow the reader to reproduce the results using the stock data. The descriptions such as “the results were assessed with the standard methods of variation statistics” are unacceptable.  Description of statistical procedures should be followed by references to standard editions (the page number is mandatory) or to public websites where used formulae are described in detail. Define all specific terms, abbreviation and symbols. For measurements, use SI units.

Results should include a quantitative assessment of the observations which must be proved by accuracy indices (standard error or confidence interval). For example: 27.9±0.47; 27.46 27.9 28.40; 0 + 0.78, 100 – 0.53. Indicate precise p-value, unless p<0.001. When assessing a hypothesis, note that p-value shows no information concerning the effect size, probability of replicating an effect (Prep), probability of a significant effect in replication (Psrep), Likelihood Ratio or probability that the null hypothesis is true.

Figures. A maximum of five figures is allowed. All curves, numbers, letters and other symbols should be explained in the figure legend. All figures should be embedded into the text and also submitted as separate image files suitable for black-and-white or grayscale printing prepared in a pixel format tiff (tagged image file format 300–600 dpi), bmp, or a vector format Adobe Illustrator (ai, eps). Maximum width of the image is 18 cm.

In order to view the non-open access content, a current subscription to the journal will be required. Online, print and combined subscription options will continue to be available to institutions.
