DISCOVERY publishes articles and reports in a wide range of subject areas: Sciences, Nature, engineering and technology. Special emphasis will be given to research and development, both in the DISCOVERY as well as the latter’s interface with the nature, particularly as they relate to major areas of concern in Universe.

Lettering on the figures must be sharp, large and dark enough to withstand reduction down to either 8.5 or 18 cm. in width. Legends to figures should be typed on a separate page giving sufficient data to make the illustration comprehensible without reference to the text. Figures must be cited in the text. Editor reserves the right to redraw figures if the quality is not up to our standards. Tables should be labeled at the top with a number and title.

It should be a single paragraph not more than 400 words, including key words, in English. Provide a running title of no more than 37 characters in the language in which the paper is presented.
