Author Guidelines

As an author, you are kindly advised to use the instructions for authors available for downloading below. This way you have nothing to change in terms of paper and text format. Simply applying the styles defined in the document will be sufficient.

Paper submitted for publication may be written in English, French or German (preferably in English) and submitted in the final camera-ready form. It is mandatory to submit your original work in Microsoft Word format (.doc not .docx) by using our online manuscript submission system. You have to make “New Submission” and upload your paper by using the online interface. All subsequent versions should be uploaded by using the same paper ID and your defined password. We are unable to process files sent by E-mail. We will do the final formatting and all necessary format conversions of your paper.

Articles are usually 10 to 25 type-written pages long. However, in special cases, shorter or longer articles may be accepted with appropriate reasoning. Author name, affiliation and complete address are to be placed underneath the title. Each paper should be preceded by a brief summary (50-150 words) in the same language. The text should be concise.

Letters, figures, and symbols should be clearly denoted so that no doubts about their meaning can arise. Symbols which may lead to confusion (e.g. letter I and figure 1, figure 0 and letter O) should be distinguished by marks which are explained in “Remarks for the typesetter”.

Equations should be typewritten using MathType add-on (http://www.mathtype.com). For equations in your paper (Insert | Object | Create New | or MathType Equation), and, with the number, placed in parentheses at the right margin. Reference to equations should use the form "Eq. (2)" or simply (2). Each formula should occupy one line.

All figures should be numbered with consecutive Arabic numbers, have descriptive captions, and be mentioned in the text. Figures submitted must be of a standard high enough for direct reproduction. Line drawings should be prepared in electronic form. Figures should be planned in advance, so as to allow reduction to 12.75 cm in column width.

References should be quoted in the text by the corresponding number in square brackets and listed at the end of the manuscript in the order as they shown in the paper, in the same way as the following examples (for a paper in a journal, a book, for an unpublished paper, a conference paper,  PhD thesis, User manual and Internet Document):
