Author Guidelines


Author Guidelines

The authors take full responsibility for the contents of the papers submitted.
«Tekstil» will publish original scientific and review papers in English. It concerns both Croatian authors and the authors from other countries, and means that the authors should submit their papers in acceptable English language. Each paper will also be published in Croatian.
Graphic and technical preparation
The authors are instructed to read carefully the type of paper they wish to submit to “Tekstil”. This is the best way to get to know some of the publishing standards of the magazine and to see what kind of technical style should be applied in writing. The papers should be submitted on this site in a form of file(s).
The text of the manuscript should be clear and precise, as short as possible to make it understandable. The Editorial board has the right to shorten the text in case when facts are repeated, when well-known facts are stated or in case of wordiness. The text should be impersonal even when one6s own research or investigation is described.
The paper should not, as a rule, contain more than twenty pages, including figures, drawings and tables. The paper submitted should be divided into heads and chapters in a logical sequence. Decimal classification is recommended. Each head and chapter should have a title, written as the rest of the text, not bold, underlined or in some other way accented. The Editorial board will select the font and everything else necessary.
The heading of the paper contains: title, the name of the author, institution/company he/she is employed by, together with the address. If more than one author are involved, their names should be written one below the other. It is recommended that the author defines and writes the UDK number.
Summary. Original scientific papers, reviews and professional papers should have a summary. It should be as short as possible, twelve lines at the most, and should contain some basic information on the paper.
The structure of the papers should be as follows: introduction, general part (theoretical basis), experiment (discussion) and conclusion. The introductory part should present the nature and importance of the field, establishing the purpose and subject of investigation or description in more detail. The results are preferably presented as diagrams or tables. Measuring units used should be the ones stipulated by the International system of measuring units (SI). The papers should be of such a nature as to suppose that the readers are previously familiar with the basis of the field in question. The technique of the experiment and the equipment can be described in detail if they differ considerably from the ones previously described in literature. The source of necessary explanation should be given for the well-known techniques and equipment. Abbreviations should be avoided in the title and the summary of the paper presented. When they are used for the first time, the whole of the expression should be used and the abbreviation should be given in brackets.
Appendixes - tables and drawings (schemes, diagrams, graphs etc.) should be constructed so as to be easy to understand, even apart from the text. They should be submitted separately from the text, but should be mentioned in the text at proper place, so that they could be positioned adequately in the printed paper. As a rule, the same data for the same type of investigation should not be repeated in both tables and diagrams. If so, the author should give his reasons, which the reviewers and the Editorial board can either accept or refuse.
Description of the figures should be submitted separately, with separate numeration for figures and tables. Drawings and diagrams not smaller than A-5 should accompany the original of the paper submitted. Letters and numerals should be such that they could be read easily even after being reduced in size. The photographs and drawings should be black and white, of as high quality as possible.
Colour photographs are published only exceptionally, with the agreement of the Editorial board. Photocopies are published provided clear reproduction can be obtained. Using a soft pencil, the name of the author, the ordinal number of the figure and the designation of the upper edge, should be written on the backside of each photograph and drawing.
More complex mathematical and chemical expressions (formulas and equations) should be written as clear as possible. They should not be incorporated into the body of the text, but submitted separately. The formulas should be numbered and the number should be clearly pointed out in the text.
Each sign in every expression should be explained separately, either below the expression or in the text.
The preferences should be quoted selectively, not extensively, except in the case of a review paper. The sources should be quoted by the order of their appearance in the text and designated with Arabic numerals in square brackets. The list of the literature used should also be submitted separately. The literature in the list is quoted as follows:
- magazines:
[1] Katović D., I.Soljačić: Novosti u oplemenjivanju pamučnog pletiva, Tekstil 43 (1994.) 5, 236-241 - books:
[2] Kniewald J: Metodika znanstvenog rada, Multigraf, Zagreb 1993., 100-105
- books of proceedings:
[3] Knez B., D.Rogale: Oblikovanje radnih mjesta u odjevnoj industriji, zbornik radova Tendencije razvoja odjevne industrije, TF-ITO, SIT- TH, Zagreb 1985., 53.64
The abbreviation «et al» should be used in the list of literature for the references where more than two authors are involved.
Corrections of test impressions. If possible, the Editorial board will send the author test impression of the paper submitted, for the purpose of correction. The text of the paper should not be altered or supplemented in any other way at this stage. Standardised signs should be used to implement corrections.
Once again, the Editorial board would like to recommend the papers published in «Tekstil» as a good model for potential authors. This practice will make our work easier and the time of waiting for publication will be reduced as much as possible.
