Full papers for publication in the Conference proceedings, including the abstract, are to be written in English in accordance with the provided template, and the authors are solely responsible for the technical correctness and correct grammar and spelling of the text.

Separate first page: information about the author and co-author(s) of the paper: name and surname, profession, institution, e-mail address.

Title of the article: written in Arial, size 14 pt, centred.

Article abstract should be at the beginning of the paper and may contain a maximum of 250 words. It must contain a summary of the article and a list of 3-6 keywords. Font: Times New Roman, size 8 pt, justified.

Texts are to be written using Microsoft Word. Length of the paper may not exceed one author’s sheet (16 standard pages, 30,000 characters, including spaces). The text should be written in Times New Roman, size 10 pt, with single line spacing and justified, written from the beginning of the line (without indenting the first line of the paragraph), with the following margins: top – 5 cm, bottom – 5 cm, left – 4.4 cm, right – 4.2 cm, gutter – 0 cm, header – 4 cm, footer – 4 cm, paper orientation: portrait. If a word or sentence needs to be emphasised in the text, italics should be used, while emphasis in bold should not be used under any circumstances. In order to separate paragraphs, one 10-pt empty line should be used.

Footnotes should be used only for additional clarification of the main text. In the text of the paper, they should not be used to refer to works cited. They should be placed at the bottom of the page, in continuity throughout the entire article, using Arabic numerals starting from 1.

Chapter headings need to be short and clear, and numbered using Arabic single-digit numerals. Chapters may also have sub-chapters up to the third level, which should be numbered using two-digit or three-digit numerals, respectively (1.1., 1.1.1., etc.).

In-text references: Cited parts of the text should be indicated in the text, not in the notes. They should be indicated in parentheses, stating the author’s surname and year of publication, e.g., (Richards 2012). In the case of quotations, the page should also be included (Richards 2012, 14). Ibid. and similar annotations should not be used; instead, each note should be indicated in the same format as the first one. If there are two authors, their surnames and year of publication should be stated, e.g., (Richards and Wilson 2007). If there are more than two authors, the surname of the first author should be stated, followed by et al. (Hall et al. 2000).

Images, graphs and tables should be inserted within the text. They need to be enumerated, have a title and indicate the source of data. They are to be numbered in continuity using Arabic numerals (separately for images, separately for graphs, separately for tables). Sources of data should be indicated below the images, graphs or tables.

Works Cited include all sources used and complete data on the works indicated using in-text references. The list of works cited is to be written without chapter numbers and is to be placed at the end of the paper (following the Conclusion). It should be organised in alphabetical order based on the authors’ surnames, chronologically for works by the same author, and it should not be numbered. Font: Times New Roman, size 8 pt, all paragraph lines except for the first one indented by 1.27 cm (hanging indent).
