Regarding links in your articles, please include them as hyperlinks directly in the text and upload the URLs separately into the system with the Article Media Wizard you’ll come across when going through the submission steps.

You can submit additional files with your articles (e.g. photographs, scans of documents, screengrabs etc) by uploading them to the Supplementary Files section. Authors who may have separate audio or video files to include with their article, should contact the managing editor (Dana Mustata: about this before uploading them to the system.

Please make sure that you fill out all the required blocks of information when you upload your article, including you affiliation details together with the full postal address of your institution, 3 to 8 keywords and a 100-word abstract. All these will be published together with your article.
