List of Authors
Do not use titles (such as Prof., Ing.,) before authors’ names; The authors’ company should be mentioned only in the affiliation (under the title of the paper), and where necessary, in the acknowledgements.
Abbreviations may be used as a convenience in place of certain unwieldy chemical names. Use only well-known abbreviations or acronyms: e.g. ATP, RNA. Standard chemical symbols (Ca, NaOH) and the abbreviations listed for units of measure may be used without definition. Define other abbreviations at the point of introduction, giving the acronym in parentheses. Use acronyms sparingly to avoid impeding comprehension of the text. Spell out abbreviations and symbols that begin a sentence. Avoid using abbreviations other than those standards for international usage. Titles and abstracts are frequently translated into other languages and undefined acronyms may be confusing.
We recommend authors to follow the paper_model_3RINCs.docx for the font of chapter title, line spacing, embedding figure and tables within sentences, and so on.
References should be included in the text using Authors’ surnames followed by the year of publication (Pivato and Ferguson, 2008). If there are more than two authors, the surnames of the first two authors could be mentioned, followed by “et al.” (ex: Cossu R., Raga R. et al., 2008). Please use Normal style (not Italic). All references included within the text should be reported as a list in a chapter at the end of the text according to the style illustrated in the enclosed example. References should be listed in alphabetical order according to the first Author’s surname.
