Author Guidelines


Paper template

All parts of manuscripts must be typed fully double-spaced, at least 10-pt. type including references, tables, table captions, footnotes, and figure legends. Manuscripts must be in Word. Page margins on all sides must be at least 2.5 cm wide. Lines on each page must be numbered to facilitate review of papers; but final revised manuscripts must NOT have line numbers. Number all pages, including tables and figures. The Annals of “Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati, Fascicle XI, Shipbuilding uses American conventions of spelling and punctuation. Manuscripts are divided into sections, which must be arranged in the following order: Title page, Abstract, Introduction, Models or Methods, Results and Discussion, Concluding Remarks, Acknowledgments, References, Figure legends, Tables, and Figures. Except for the introduction, all of these sections have separate headings, which should appear in the manuscript worded exactly as above. Subheadings take the form of paragraph lead-ins. Paragraph lead-ins should be boldface, indented, and run in with the text, separated by a period. Third-order subheadings will not be  accepted.

 Title page. Type double-spaced on a separate page. At the top provide a running head indicating the topic of the paper. Then list the full title of the paper; the names of all authors; and name and address of the institution(s) or organization(s) where the work was done. When authors are affiliated with more than one department or unit within an institution or with more than one institution, superscript numbers are used to indicate each author’s address. Above the footnotes, supply a short title or running head and three to five key words, indicating the principal topics of the paper, to be used for indexing. Footnotes are used to give the present addresses of authors who are no longer at the institution(s) where the work was done. A footnote asterisk (*) must be placed after the name of the author to whom correspondence about the paper and proofs are to be sent. The telephone, fax, and Email numbers of this author are placed in the footnote of the author for correspondence. No manuscript text appears on the title page.

Abstract. An abstract of minimum 700 characters and no more than 2,000 characters, including spaces, must be placed on the first page of the paper to summarize the principal points of the study. The abstract does not contain references, figures, or tables. Abstracts are reprinted separately by abstracting services and therefore must
be meaningful without reference to the body of the paper. 

Introduction. The introductory section has no title and begins on the page following the abstract. It provides the reader with sufficient background information to evaluate the results of the research. An extensive review of the literature is not needed. The introduction also gives the rationale for and objectives of the study that is being reported.

Models or Methods. Sufficient information must be provided so that another researcher can repeat the experiments that are described in the paper. If reference is made to a method published elsewhere in a journal or document that may not be readily available to most readers, then details of the method are to be included. If a published method is modified, such modification(s) must be described.

Results and Discussion. The Results and Discussion section provides information by means of text, tables, and figures. Results and Discussion may be combined, or there may be a separate Discussion section. If a Discussion section is to be included, place extensive interpretations of results in the Discussion section. Tables and figures must be numbered in the order in which they are mentioned in the text.

All tables and figures must be cited in the text. Tables and figures reporting results should not be cited in the Models or Methods section. Do not extensively repeat the introduction or Results sections. Provide an interpretation of the results in relation to known information. Conclusions should be included in this section.

Acknowledgments. Acknowledge financial and personal assistance (sources other than your institution or any potential conflict of interest).
Once a paper is reviewed and accepted, after the required modifications (if any) it should be resent to the Editor in the final form. Keep in mind that we strongly encourage a length of 6-10 pages. Even number of pages is a mandatory condition.
