  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
  • Before submitting the manuscript, the Author Consent Form ( has been signed by all authors and has been deposited at the corresponding author.

Author Guidelines

We recommend that you visit the section "About the journal" to consult our Editorial Policy. If you wish to submit a paper to ECOCYCLES please send your manuscript to the Editor in Chief of the journal (please use both email addresses: komives.tamas[at] and komives.tamas[at] 

In the case of initial submissions, ECOCYCLES accepts "format-free" manuscripts. Thus, at first submission, authors can submit their manuscript in any format that is easily readable by the reviewers and the editors.

The TITLE needs to give a clear description of the work presented in the paper, and the full names and affiliations of the AUTHORS should also be given. The KEYWORDS should be neither too broad nor too specialized.

The MAIN TEXT should preferably be divided into introduction, methods, results, discussion, and conclusions.

IN-TEXT REFERENCES should follow the Harvard Referencing: after a relevant statement to be referenced (author, year), for example: (Darwin, 1859) or in case of 2 authors (Watson and Crick, 1953) and in case of more than two authors (Casida et al., 1983).

TABLES AND FIGURES can be inserted in a single column or as a full page width arrangement. Each table should be numbered (Table 1, Table 2, etc.), with the caption being placed above the table. Each figure should be numbered (Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.), with the caption being placed below the figure. In the text, figures and tables should be referred to as follows: “Fig. 1 shows the relationship …” or “the measured values are given in Table 1.” Figures and tables should be inserted into the text soon after they are first referenced (as illustrated by Table 1).

For EQUATIONS and SYMBOLS use the “Equation Editor” whenever possible. Equations should be centered, with the equation number flush with the right margin. Equations should be cited in the text with their number, for example, “…as shown in Eq. (1)...”. Symbols used in equations should be italicized and explained after the equation. For example:

                                                pV = RT                               Eq. (1)

where p is pressure in kPa, T is the temperature in K, V is the molar volume in m3·mol-1, and R is the gas constant. 

Informed Consent. Please note that in the case the research contains identifiable individual data of human subjects, your manuscript has to include a statement demonstrating that they all are aware of the intended publication and their consent has been acquired. In addition, before submitting the paper, the Author Consent Form has to be prepared and deposited at the corresponding author.

Public Interest Statement (optional but recommended) - in order to increase the impact of their research authors may give a description (up to 150 words in length) of their work in a language that is easily understandable to the general public.


All research papers will be accommodated in this section.
