5. Before submitting a paper, authors are asked to be aware of the journal’s editorial standards.

6. The submitted version of the article must not contain any information that would make it possible to identify the author, i.e.:
- The authors' names and their affiliations must not appear on the title page.
- References to any previous work by the authors (books, articles, papers, etc.) should be phrased in such a way so as to prevent their identification.
- This version of the article must not contain any acknowledgments or references to participation in joint research projects, conferences, etc.

7. The introduction should clearly state the purpose of the article and justify the importance of the issue addressed. In the case of empirical research, it should include a brief description of the method, the data used and the scope of analysis. In addition, the final paragraph should provide concise information on the structure of the text.

8. For empirical research, we suggest that the structure of the text follow the IMRAD (Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion) structure.
