Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  • I have suggested two reviewers (at least one from abroad) in the comments to editor section.
  • I have indicated one topic and one subtopic under which I would like to submit my paper.

Author Guidelines

General information

  • All papers have to deal with the topic of transport and be submitted strictly within one of the listed subtopics. Please, refer to list of topics and subtopics here and indicate it clearly when submitting your paper.
  • Submitted papers must be unpublished and must not be currently under review for any other publication.
  • Manuscripts written in good English must include abstract and keywords also written in English. The abstract should not exceed 10 lines.
  • Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 20 pages including figures and graphs.
  • Submission should be sent by e-mail – as an attachment – to the following address: komunikacie@uniza.sk
  • The author‘s exact mailing address, full names, E-mail address, telephone or fax number, the name and address of the organization and workplace (also written in English) must be enclosed.
  • For all manuscripts a double-blind peer review by at least two independent reviewers and language correction is mandatory. 
  • After reviewing and incorporating the editor‘s comments, the final draft (before printing) will be sent to authors for final review and minor adjustments.

 General paper format

  • Submissions should be prepared in Microsoft WORD compatible format – format A4, Times Roman size 12, simple line spacing, page margins 2.5 cm.
  • Do not use styles and limit formatting to minimum (bold for section headings, figure and table captions).
  • Uncommon abbreviations must be defined the first time they are used in the text.

 Equations, mathematics and number formats

  • Mathematical symbols and equations should follow standard formatting rules (use of italics and bold) and the use of inline mathematic equations and expressions limited to a necessary minimum.
  • Scalar variables in the text are set as italic (e.g. rcorr or A5), vector are set as boldface (e.g. F , or v1) and matrices or tensors are set as boldface Arial (e. g. Z)
  • Use decimal point instead of decimal comma in numbers, e.g. 0.367 and not 0,367.
  • All equations, with the exception of inline expressions, should be numbered in a chronological order using numbers in brackets - (1).
  • Equations may be submitted in only in Word and Mathtype formats and must be editable, i.e. not embedded as figures.
  • Only SI units are allowed, using multiplication and negative powers instead of /, e.g.  kg.m-3  and not kg/m3. If Imperial units are necessary, then a conversion to an appropriate SI unit must be provided.

 Figures and tables

  • All figures and tables shall be numbered in a chronological order, contain a concise caption and referenced in the text. Place the tables and figures in positions that you consider appropriate given content.
  • Figures, graphs and diagrams, if not processed in Microsoft WORD, must be sent in electronic form (as JPG, GIF, TIF, TTF or BMP files) or drawn in high contrast on white paper. Photographs for publication must be either contrastive or on a slide.
  • Where possible always try to use table and figure widths of 7.5 cm or 16 cm; the editor reserves the right to reformat figures and tables that are not of the indicated width.
  • Tables should use only horizontal lines to separate the table heading from the body of the table and at the bottom of the table. No colours or other formatting is permitted in tables; when highlighting is required you may use special symbols such as "^",  "†", "‡", etc.
  • Do not embed tables as figures; all tabulated information must be in editable format. Using Figure caption for graphics containing tabulated information is not acceptable.
  • Where possible use vector or high-resolution graphics for good publishing quality and reliability.
Table formatting examples

Citations and references

  • All information and data that are not author's original data or contribution shall be appropriately and clearly referenced. All manuscripts are submitted for an originality check.
  • The numbered reference citation within text should be enclosed in square brackets and used in chronological order. The reference list should appear at the end of the article (in compliance with ISO 690).
  • For citing of multiple sources use [1,5,7] or [1-3] depending on the order of references you are using.
  • The following format shall be used for all references:
