Review is a scientific writing of literature of a specific issue that contains a critical and constructive analysis of literature. It can be a summary, classification, analysis and comparison. The length of a review is similar to or longer than general communication. A review with 8,000 to 10,000 word-long will be considered. Discussion paper is an academic writing that discusses specific issues. This type of manuscript should be supported by scientific evidence of issues being debated and contains no more than 8,000 words.

The main aim of short communication is to disseminate the issue or research report as fast as possible.
