The article title should be precise and representative and must be drawn up both in English and Romanian.

4.2. Authors
The name of authors should be mentioned with the full name and surname for women and with the surname' initial and the entire name for men. Arabic numbers will be used as superscripts after each name to indicate: the name and address of institution where the authors are affiliated and the e-mail addresses (for the first author and for the corresponding one).

4.3. Abstracts
Must be written in English (max. 400 w.) and in Romanian (max. 500 w.). It should summarize the methods, the essential results and conclusions.

4.4. Keywords
Maximum 5 (five) words for each language will be inserted at the end of the abstracts.

4.5. Introduction
A brief theme's motivation related to the actual level of international researches, including the relevant literature data mentioned in Bibliographical references.

4.6. Methods and materials
The employed methods and the materials under study will be briefly described. When an original method was modified by authors, the original method will be described followed by the changes. For the material and apparatus, the international nomenclature should be used, and for medicines – the generic naming (the commercial names should be cited in brackets).

4.7. Results and discussions
Results – are essential for an original work. In this chapter should be submitted tables and/or illustration (figures, pictures, diagrams, graphs). Discussion of results is another component of original articles. It is represented by the assessment of original results correspondingly with those obtained by other authors in similar investigations. The discussion must be concise and well motivated, including the bibliographical titles' citing. The Discussion should not reiterate the Results. For details on preparation of tables /figures, see below:

Tables (max. 17,5 /23 cm) must be constructed as simply as possible and be intelligible without reference to the text. Each table must have a concise heading and legend and must not simply duplicate the text or figures. Tables should be numbered consecutively and should be designed in black and white or in grayscale, unless color reproduction is essential for the understanding of the message. They will have a reasonable number of rows and columns. Be sure that each table is cited in the text (e.g. Table 2). Tables must be sent as separate files. Do not insert tables in the main document. You may insert only the table's title and legend at their place in text.

Figures must display the figure number and must have a concise title and legend. Be sure that each figure is cited in the text (e.g. Fig. 1). The figures should be simple and easy to understand and should be accompanied by explanations (e.g. regarding the microscop and camera magnifying factors and the colouring methods). All figures must be sent as separate files (jpg). Do not insert figures in the main document. You may insert only the figure's title and legend at their place in text. Plan the size of the figure (or of a group of figures) to fill the width of 1 or 2 columns in the printed journal (1 column = 8,5 cm, 2 columns = 17,5 cm). Figures should be submitted as Grayscale or CMYK format, min. 300 dpi resolution at the size they will appear in the print.Avoid the use of shading, but if unavoidable, avoid 1-20% and 70-99% shading. Instead of shading, denote variations in graphs or drawings by cross-hatching; solid black; or vertical, horizontal, or diagonal striping. Avoid the use of dots. Three-dimensional bar graphs will not be published if the information they refer to is only two-dimensional.

4.8. Conclusions
Devolve logically from article's contents. Provide only conclusions directly supported by the results, along with implications for practice; avoid speculation and overgeneralization. Give equal emphasis to positive and negative findings of equal scientific merit.

4.9. Acknowledgments
The Acknowledgments section should include the names of those people who contributed to a study but did not meet the requirements for authorship. The corresponding author is responsible for informing each person listed in the acknowledgment section that they have been included here.If need, can be mentioned at the paper's end, ahead of References.

4.10. References
Should be given in alphabetical order of the first authors' name, followed by the names of the other authors (the formula “et all.”, “and contributors” are not accepted) then the year of publication, the full title in the original language, the title of journal, volume and the numbers of the first and last pages and for books, also the publisher's name and address. The references must have a correspondence in text. The author is responsible for the accuracy of references.
