The structure and content of the original paper

The title is supposed to fit the content of the work; it is not allowed to suggest an issue broader than the one covered in the article. If the subject of the dissertation is living organisms, their current Latin names should be included in the title.

The abstract (up to 200 words) should answer the questions: why the research was undertaken, what methods were used, and what results were obtained.

Keywords should include up to 6 keywords/phrases that have equivalents in the abstract and will allow the article to be searched effectively in databases.

The introduction is intended to present the background of the research. Whether anything is already known about the topic, the significance of the issue addressed, the hypothesis and the aim of the study.

The materials and methods should be described in such a way that the research can be reproduced.

The results are expected to include a description of the values and relationships obtained in the experiment and their statistical interpretation. In addition, tables and graphs can be included in this section.

The discussion is to present the interpretation of the results against the data obtained by other authors. It should include a reference to the hypothesis of the study.
