Articles should have between 10000 and 40000 characters with spaces, and should be written with diacritical marks in the Romanian language; titles should not be very long. You should arrange your manuscript in the following order:
Title page, including article title author(s) name, academic degrees of the authors, institutional affiliations, name of the department(s) and institution(s) to which the work should be attributed.
The author responsible for correspondence will be marked by an asterisk, and their e-mail address will be indicated.
An abstract must accompany each paper (150-250 words). The abstract should be easily understood without reference to the text. Following the abstract, a list of 3-10 keywords is essential for indexing purposes. The title, abstract and keywords must be written in both Romanian and English.
The elements comprising the manuscript must be ordered as follows: Title, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Method, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgements (if any), and References.
Reference citations should follow the Vancouver style described in the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals, as stated by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors. They should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text. Identify references in text, tables, and legends by Arabic numerals in brackets – e.g. (1), (2-6) etc. The reference list is a separate section at the end of the manuscript. Type each reference single-spaced, with one-line space between references. All authors cited and only these must be indicated in the list. Use exactly the reference style and format as shown below. Each reference should contain names and initials of all authors. The titles of journals should be abbreviated according to Index Medicus or by analogy.

Tables must have a title. Include tables in the file for sending. Use the table function of a word processor rather than tab and space. For postal submission type each table, double-spaced on a separate page. Do not submit tables as photographs.

Explain in the footnotes all non-standard abbreviations used in the table. Omit internal horizontal and vertical lines. If data from another published or unpublished source are used, obtain permission and acknowledge fully.

Each heading for subdivisions of the text should be clearly identified using different font types (e.g. bold, underlined). Use standard abbreviations.
