Please include the photographer's name with each photograph so that he or she can be properly acknowledged. Submit each item separately and number sequentially as (main author) Figure 1.jpg, (main author) Figure 2.jpg, and so on, for example, Liatos Figure1.jpg, Liatos Table1.doc, etc.
All files should be submitted as a word document
Original papers. Original contributions on a specific topic, with a maximum of 3000 and 4500 words and no more than 40 references. The papers shall have the following layout: introduction, summary, keywords, materials and methods, results, discussion and conclusions.

The abstract should not exceed 200 words, should be one paragraph and should be free of references and abbreviations. It should indicate clearly the scope and main conclusions of the paper.
Please provide up to 5 keywords on the article title page, which encapsulate the principal topics of the paper in order to assist in indexing the journal.
Introduction. This should be comprehensible to the general reader. It should contain a clear statement of the purpose of the investigation and should provide relevant references but not exhaustively review the subject.
This section should give sufficient information in the text or by reference to permit the work to be repeated without the need to communicate with the authors. When reporting experiments on human subjects, indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with ethical standards of the Committee on Human Experimentation at the institution in which the experiments were done or in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975. The type of statistical test used should be stated in the Methods section. A common error is the use of means, standard deviations and standard errors and the application of T-tests in the evaluation of non-normally distributed data. The use of non-parametric tests may often be more appropriate.
Results should be presented concisely and should not include material appropriate to the Discussion section. Authors are encouraged to express units, quantities, and formulas according to the recommendations of the systeme internationale (SI units). All measurements should be given in metric units.
Emphasize the new and important aspects of the study and conclusions derived there from. Do not repeat in detail data given in the Results section. Include in the Discussion the implications of the findings and their limitations and relate the observations to other relevant studies. Link the conclusions with the goals of the study but avoid unqualified statements and conclusions not completely supported by your data. Avoid claiming priority and alluding to work that has not been completed. State new hypotheses, whenever warranted, but clearly label them as such. Recommendations, if appropriate, may be included.
Provide information sufficient to identify sources of support, technical assistance, and intellectual contributions not associated with authorship.
References to other publications must be in APA style and carefully checked for completeness, accuracy, and consistency. This is very important in an electronic environment because it enables your readers to exploit the reference linking facility on the database and link back to the works you have cited through CrossRef.
You should cite publications in the text: (Adkins, 2001) using the first named author's name or (¦Johnson¦ and Hall, 1999) citing both names of two, or (Cogdill, Fanderclai, Kilborn,and Williams, 2001), but (Cogdill, Fanderclai, Kilborn, & Williams, 2001) and (Cogdill et al., 2001) or (Cogdill et al., 2001).At the end of the paper, a reference list in alphabetical order should be supplied
