All articles accepted are made freely available for readers, and the work of the authors is licensed under a Common Creative license.

Submission declaration

Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere and its publication is approved by all authors. If the article will be accepted, it will not be published elsewhere including electronically in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the copyright-holder.

The language of publication: English is preferable, since this is the universal language of science. The manuscript, translated in English ("spellchecked" and "grammar-checked") must be the final version according to the following instructions:

For complying with the journal style, a template is available, while conforming with the requirements further described.

The page setup will be: A4 with margins: top 3 cm, bottom 3 cm, left 2,5 cm, right 2,5 cm, header 1,27 cm, footer 1,27 cm. A number of 8 pages is reasonable, with even number of pages preffered, however, the number of pages may be extended if absolutely necessary.

Text will be written with TNR font, single spaced, distributed in the following sections: Title, Abstract, Introduction, Materials and methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgments, References.

Paper title should be written with capitals, TNR 12, bold, centered. It must be concise and informative. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.

Author(s) names and affiliations: author(s) names will be written under title paper with TNR 11, centered, and will be preceded by a space. Where the family name may be ambiguous (e.g., a double name), please indicate this clearly. The affiliation contact address for the corresponding author will be written after one space with TNR 10, centered. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a superscript number immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the e-mail address of the first author. 

Abstract should be written in English languages with TNR 11 Italic, Justify, after 3 spaces, should count less than 250 words. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided. Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.

Bellow the abstract, preceded by 1 space, will be written keywords in TNR 11 Italic. Key words should not repeat the title of the manuscript

The text (Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgments, References) will be written with TNR 12, Normal Justify, in two columns, after four spaces under the key words.

Introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject and the proposed approach or solution.

Materials and Methods should be complete enough to allow experiments to be reproduced.

Results and Discussion should be presented with clarity and precision and should be explained, but largely without referring to the literature and should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained.

Conclusion section contains a few sentences at the end of the paper and concludes the results and discussions.

Acknowledgments Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., writing assistance or proof reading the article, providing language help, etc.).

Illustrations and tables should be progressively numbered, following the order cited in the text. Any tables and figures that are included in the main text of the paper should be numbered separately, in the sequence that they are mentioned in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph form. Figures should be saved as JPEG, TIFF or EPS. Scanned figures (in JPEG and TIFF formats) should have a resolution of 300 dpi (halftone) or 600 to 1200 dpi (line drawings) in relation to the reproduction size.

Formula should be clearly written and well separated from the text. Each formula should occupy one line.  Number consecutively any equations that have to be displayed separately from the text (if referred to explicitly in the text). 

References should be presented in consecutive order (as they are cited in the text) and should follow the model: Author's First Name, Last Name (capitals letter), Title of book, Number of edition, nr.of tom, Name of Publishing House, place, year of publication, pages. The first six authors should be presented. Journal title abbreviations should be in Medline standard. Citations in the text should be marked by Arab numbers in brackets or in the upper. Each citation item should be placed in a separate paragraph.  Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. All references mentioned in the Reference list must be cited in the text, and vice versa

Web references: as a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed. Any further information, if known (author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given.

Studies in humans and animals

If the work involves the use of human subjects or human data, the author should ensure that the work described has been carried out in accordance with The Code of Ethics of the World Medical Association (Declaration of Helsinki) for experiments involving humans. The manuscript should be in line with the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals and aim for the inclusion of representative human populations (sex, age and ethnicity) as per those recommendations.

By definition, sensory evaluation by trained or naive panelists and other sensory-consumer research involve humans and it requires an ethical statement. If ethical approval is not required by national laws, authors must state that an exemption from ethics committee approval was obtained (with relevant reference number) or, if no human ethics committee or formal documentation process is available, the statement should explain this and confirm that the appropriate protocols for protecting the rights and privacy of all participants were utilized during the execution of the research, e.g. no coercion to participate, full disclosure of study requirements and risks, written or verbal consent of participants, no release of participant data without their knowledge, ability to withdraw from the study at any time.

For non-interventional studies (e.g. surveys, questionnaires.....), all participants must be fully informed why the research is being conducted, how their data will be used and if there are any risks associated with it.

Editors reserve the right to reject any submission that does not meet the above requirements.

Research involving animals

All animal experiments should comply with the ARRIVE guidelines and should be carried out in accordance with EU Directive 2010/63/EU for animal experiments
