Summary should be prepared really carefully, because in addition to the title it is the most readable part of the contribution. Make it short and concise. Avoid acronyms and abbrevations and write in the third person.


Introduction

The text content should be structured regarding to the type of the article. Break it to the appropriate length and substantially completed sections.

The arguments and conclusions should be suitably emphasized without owning other achievments, but steer the reader to additional literature. Please note the copyright of published works (eg. paintings).

If the article is referring to multiple sources, using different terminology, unify the terms in the article (do not use different terms for the same concept).
