Guide for Authors


Papers should be submitted, as attached document, to the Editor in Chief by e-mail at redactie.tpa@ugal.ro. Each manuscript should be accompanied by a cover letter stating that the article is original and unpublished, is being submitted only to this editor and is not being considered for publication at any other journal. In addition to this statement, it is strongly recommended that a list of up to four potential referees be included in your cover letter. The letter should include the corresponding author’s email address, fax, telephone, and complete mailing address. The documents should be edited in Microsoft Word.


Submission declaration 

The authors should ensure that the work submitted for publication has not been published previously, it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and will not be submitted elsewhere before a decision has been taken concerning its acceptability by The Annals of the University Dunarea de Jos - Food Technology.


Types of Contributions

Original research papers; review articles; short communications.


Manuscript Preparation


Manuscripts must be typewritten according to the Template (Manuscript Template). The corresponding author should be identified (an E-mail address is mandatory). Full postal addresses must be given for all co-authors.

Paper Length: Research papers should not exceed 7,000 words and should not include more than 6 tables and figures combined. Review articles should not exceed 10,000 words, with a limit of 6 tables and figures combined. Short communication papers should not exceed 2,500 words and should not include more than 2 tables and figures combined.

Abstracts: Each paper should be provided with an abstract of about 150-200 words, reporting concisely the purpose and results of the paper.

Text: Follow this order when typing manuscripts: Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords, Main text, Acknowledgements, Appendix, References. Do not import the Figures or Tables into your text. It is recommended to structure the main text as follows: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusions. Other than the cover page, every page of the manuscript, including the title page, references, tables etc. should be numbered; however, in the text no reference should be made to page numbers. 

Figures: All illustrations should be provided in camera-ready form, suitable for reproduction (which may include reduction) without retouching. Do not place figures into bordered frames and make sure you use uniform lettering and sizing. Photographs, charts and diagrams are all to be referred to as "Figure 1" and should be numbered consecutively in the order to which they are referred. All figures are to have a caption.

Tables: Tables should be numbered consecutively and given a suitable caption. Footnotes to tables should be typed below the table and should be referred to by superscript lowercase letters. In the manuscript, tables should be referred to as “Table 1” and should not duplicate results presented elsewhere in the manuscript (e.g. in graphs).

Units: The S.I. system should be used for all scientific and laboratory data; if, in certain instances, it is necessary to quote other units, these should be added in parentheses.

References: All publications cited in the text should be presented in the References section following the text of the manuscript. No more than 30 references should be used.

In the text refer to the name of the first author (without initials) and year of publication (e.g. "Moraru (1994) studied the influence of..." or "... pentosan content (Smith, 1998) ..."). The list of references should be arranged alphabetically by authors' names and should be as full as possible, listing all authors, the full title of articles and journals, publisher and year. The manuscript should be carefully checked to ensure that the spelling of authors' names and dates are exactly the same in the text as in the reference list.

References should be given in the following form:

Brown, F. and Grey, A. 2001. Name of paper. Name of journal in italics, volume no in bold (journal number), page numbers.

Smith, F.J. 1998. Name of book in italics, page or chapter numbers if relevant. Publisher, Place of publication.  

Morris, H. and Lee, K. 2000. Name of paper. In: Name of book in italics, Name(s) of editor(s).  Ed, page numbers. Publisher, Place of publication.

The full URL should be given. Any further information, if known (author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list.

The journal carries no article submission charges and no page charges for authors.
