Manuscripts are accepted with the understanding that authors have obtained the authority for publication. If accepted, the manuscript shall not be published elsewhere in the same form, in either the same or another language, without the consent of the editors. Authors are responsible for the scientific accuracy of the papers. The HASSS assumes no responsibility for conclusions and errors made by authors.

Publication charges

Tables and figures

Each table and figure must be on a separate page of the manuscript.

Tables: Number the tables according to their sequence in the body text. The text should include references to all tables. Vertical lines should not be used to separate columns. Leave some extra space instead.

Figures: Figures should be of high quality (not less than 300 dpi JPEG or TIFF format), in black and white only, with the same size as the author would like them to appear in press. Choose the size of symbols and lettering so that the figures can be reduced to fit on a page or in a column.

Please use this proof only for checking the typesetting, editing, completeness and correctness of the text, tables and figures. Significant changes to the article as accepted for publication will only be considered at this stage with permission from the Editor-in-chief.
