The title of the paper has to be clear, concise and suitable with the content.

Authors List and Affiliation Format:

Authors' full first and last names must be given. Abbreviated middle name can be added (no more than 3 authors accepted).
The authors have to indicate their affiliation and email addresses.

The abstract should have minimum 200 and maximum 400 words. The abstract must clearly describe the purpose of the paper and the objectives pursued by the author by his/her study. The detailed references to prior work are required in the paper but not in the abstract. Avoid the use of abbreviations and references.

Key words 
Five key words or short phrases, defining the subject approached in the paper.

1. Introduction
The introduction shall be at most two pages in length, however not less than half a page.
The text must provide answers for four questions:
(1) What matter does the paper cover?
(2) Why is the studied matter important?
(3) How does the author intend to answer to this matter?
(4) What is the relation between the paper and the already existent specialized literature?

This introductory section shall be written clearly, and any confusion in communicating the four answers might result in paper rejection.

2. Literature Review
This section must comprise referrals to specialized literature, compared against the paper’s subject, emphasizing the most important and relevant contributions on which the author will ground his / her argumentation. In the reviewing process there shall be taken into consideration the share of referrals to papers published in international journals recognized by the scientific community. This section must prove the fact that the author is familiar with the knowledge level in the studied area, that he/she has sufficient scientific training, allowing him/her to have a pertinent opinion over the studied issues. In order to get a good feedback from the reviewers, this section should rely on at least 15 – 20 relevant titles.

3. Theoretical Background (if the case)
This section consists (where the case) of the theoretical tools: models, calculation formula, which are used as a basis to develop your own model, or application. Where the case, a separate section should address to methodological issues: any potential statistic data will be discussed here, in terms of their source, processing manner, analyzing, testing and inferential tools.

4. Paper Content
In this section (or set of sections, as the case might be) the author shall present and support the results he/she intents to communicate by means of the paper. Please, rename this section according to the requirements of your own work!

5. Conclusions and Implications
The conclusions section shall cover three elements:
(1) it shall summarize the main outcomes;
(2) it shall undertake the implications of such outcomes;
(3) suggestions for future researches.

References will be at the end of the paper and they shall be written in accordance with the Chicago Manual of Style.
The authors shall visit for rapid guidelines. Besides that, all references should be cited in the text (ex. Perelman, 1972, 30). No numbers with or without brackets should be used to cite or to list the references.

For the purpose of indexing in international databases, references should preferably be prepared with EndNote®, ReferenceManageror a similar bibliography software package. If references are prepared manually they must be checked for integrity and correctness.

Length of Paper
Please, bear in mind that the length of the full paper should fall between 4500 – 8000 words.

Page Numbering
Do not add any text to the headers (do not set running heads) and footers, not even page numbers, because text will be added electronically.

Layout (11 pt, Bold)
An easy way to comply with the review paper formatting requirements is to use this document as a template and simply type your text into it. Headers, footers or page numbers must not be included. The paper must be set as follows:
• .docx/.doc format. (do not send the PDF version of the article)
• A4 Format (21 cm x 29.7 cm)
• Margins: top: 4.90 cm, bottom: 4.5 cm, left and right 4 cm each.
• Times New Roman fonts, line spacing single. The font formats are: paper title: 13 pt bold, capital letters at each word; author's name(s): 10 pt bold; abstract & keywords: 9 pt; chapter titles: 12 pt bold, capital letters at each word justified; subtitles: 11 pt bold, numbered, justified; text: 11 pt, paragraph Before: 0; After: 6), the content of the bibliography: 9 pt, justified
Avoid leaving a heading at the bottom of a page, with the subsequent text starting at the top of the next page.

The superscript numeral used to refer to a footnote appears in the text either directly after the word to be discussed or – in relation to a phrase or a sentence – following the punctuation mark (comma, semicolon, or period). Footnotes should appear at the bottom of the normal text area, with a line of about 5 cm set immediately above them.

To help your readers, avoid using footnotes altogether and include necessary peripheral observations in the text (within parentheses, if you prefer, as in this sentence). All footnotes must be numbered consecutively (in Arabic numbers) on each page. Keep footnotes to a minimum or else list them in a special section before references.

All tables must be numbered consecutively (in Arabic numbers). Table headings should be placed above the table. Leave no blank line between the table and the caption.
