Author Guidelines

All manuscripts must be prepared in English and are subject to a rigorous and fair peer-review process. The journal publishes mainly original papers, but we are also interested in: i) Short Reports – 2-5 page papers where an author can either present an idea with theoretical background but has not yet completed the research needed for a complete paper or preliminary data; ii) Book Reviews – Comments and critiques; iii) Case Studies.

Manuscripts that cover a simple comparison among treatments, without demonstrating advances to the science beyond treatment effects, may be returned without review. To be acceptable, a manuscript, in addition to being of high quality, must be considered important and relevant by the majority of our readers. Manuscripts with only local interest and/or a lack of significant scientific contribution will not be considered.

From 2018 to verify originality, your manuscript may be checked by using CrossRef Similarity Check (iThenticate anti-plagiarism software).

Literature citations need to be numbered in their order of appearance written in square brackets. The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. To increse the  discoverability of research please give the DOI , as well (if available).

Example for item in reference list:

Jákói Z., Hodúr C., László Z., Beszédes S. (2018): Detection of the efficiency of microwave–oxidation process for meat industry wastewater by dielectric measurement, Water Science & Technology78(10), 2141-2148.

Personal communications and unpublished works should only be mentioned in the text. Do not use footnotes or endnotes as a substitute for a reference list.

Ethical guidelines for journal publication

(based on Elsevier recommendations and COPE's Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors)

Authors: Authors should present an objective discussion of the significance of research work as well as sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the experiments. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable. Review articles should also be objective, comprehensive, and accurate accounts of the state of the art. The authors should ensure that their work is entirely original works, and if the work and/or words of others have been used, this has been appropriately acknowledged*. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal. The corresponding author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication.

Editors: Editors should evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit. They should encourage debate and academic integrity and also protect individual data. They also have a duty to act if any misconduct is suspected and to ensure the integrity of the academic record. The editors must not use unpublished information in the editor's own research without the express written consent of the author. They should take reasonable responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper.

Reviewers: Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviews should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments, so that authors can use them for improving the paper. Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
