Author Guidlines

Types of Paper
  • Thesis Review
  • Opinion

Articles must be as concise as possible. They should not occupy more than five printed journal pages, including figures, tables, and references, as a general rule (maximum 1500 words, Arial 10 pt, single-spaced, minimum 2 cm margins). The number of references should be limited to 15. The authors must use the Microsoft Word template to prepare their manuscripts.

Accepted File Formats

The authors must use the Microsoft Word template to prepare their manuscripts. Using the template file will substantially shorten the time to complete copy-editing and publication of accepted manuscripts.
Manuscripts prepared in Microsoft Word must be converted into a single file before submission. When preparing manuscripts in Microsoft Word, the authors must use the GMPC TOP Microsoft Word template file. Please insert your graphics (schemes, tables, figures, etc.) in the main text after the paragraph of its first citation.
All manuscripts must contain the required sections: Author Information, Abstract, Keywords, Background, Summary or main text, Conclusions, Figures, and Tables with Captions, Funding Information, Conflict of Interest, and other Ethics Statements.

Cover Letter

A cover letter must be included with each manuscript submission. It should be concise and explain why the paper's content is significant, placing the findings in the context of existing work and why it fits the scope of the journal. Confirm that neither the manuscript nor any parts of its content are currently under consideration or published in another journal. The names of proposed and excluded reviewers should be provided in the submission system, not in the cover letter.

During submission, ensure that the following items are present

One author has been designated as the corresponding author with contact details, including an E-mail address and full postal address.
All necessary files have been uploaded: Manuscript following the provided templates include abstract, keywords, all figures, and tables (include relevant captions, titles, description, footnotes), conflict of interest, funding statement, acknowledgment, and references.

Further considerations
  • The manuscript has been written in American English and has been 'spell and grammar checked'.
  • All references mentioned in the Reference List are cited in the text, and vice versa.
  • Permission has been obtained for the use of copyrighted material from other sources (including the Internet).
