Wayne ROONEY1*, Ryan J. GIGGS1, David De GEA2

*E-mail of corresponding author:

1 Department, Institution, Address, Country
2 Different Department, Institution, Address, Country

*Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication.


For original scientific papers the text should be divided in sections:

Authors should indicate the research topic and the principal results and major conclusions.
References to other papers are not allowed.
Not longer than 1.500 characters.

Short overview which explained the reasons for the research of the paper. In the all paper citations, the literature (authors) as follows: (Kroos, 2017) – one author; (Kroos and Modrić, 2017) – two authors and (Kroos et al., 2017) three or more authors.
Frequent self-citations are not a desirable form of writing.
Materials and methods
It is necessary to provide information on the material (e.g. origin, technical and physical properties).
All used agricultural techniques as well as devices and instruments should state the name of the producer, the model, the year and the country of origin.
All conducted research should include methods on which the results are obtained.
All units should be written e.g.: m s-1, km h-1, MJ kg-1

Results and discussion
Titles of tables and figures should be written as plain text above tables and below figures.
Tables and figures should be placed to the relevant text in the article.
Figures, photos, charts and tables should be incorporated in the text, but figures, photos, charts and tables should be also send as separate files in original programs that they are made (Excel, CorelDraw, Adobe Photoshop, etc.).
The discussion should not be merely repetition of the obtained results. Authors should compare their own data with data obtained in relevant scientific literature.

The most important thesis already stated in the previous sections.
