Abstract should be a single paragraph that summarizes the background, methods and the
main findings of the paper. The printed area including text, illustrations, legends etc. should
be 25 cm in length and 16 cm in width. Provide an empty headline above the Title to be filled
in by Diffusion-Fundamentals. The character font should be "Times" in the whole document.
Character size in the text must be 12 pts. Character size in Footnotes and Legends should be
10 pts. Copyrights remain with the Authors.
provide five keywords
1. Section
Diffusion Fundamentals is a peer-reviewed online journal publishing original research
articles of an outrageous importance for a broad scientific community interested in diffusion
and transport. Manuscripts in English language including short communications or full-length
articles will be considered. No limitations of the length are required. As the main criteria for
acceptance the contributions are required to demonstrate novel original research results
important for any field of diffusion theory, experiment and application.
1.1. Subsection
Editors would like to deliberately leave a decision on the presentation forms to authors.
However basic requirements of scientific writing and arranging the manuscript are implied.
The writing style should be concise and clear. The manuscript should start with the Title
followed by Authors, Affiliations and Keywords.
1.1.1 Title
Provide a clear title specific to the study but comprehensible to a broad community. All
words except for prepositions, articles, and conjunctions should be in capital letters. Any
abbreviations should be avoided in the title.
1.1.2 Authors and Affiliations
Provide the first names or initials, the middle names or initials, and the last names. Provide
affiliations (department, university or organization, city, state/province, country). Designate
the corresponding author and provide the contact information.
2. Structure
Recommended structure of the Sections is as follows: Summary, Introduction, Methods
and Materials, Results, Discussions, Conclusions, References, Acknowledgments.
Illustrations and tables should be numbered according to their sequence in the text and
inserted into the corresponding sections of the contribution, see Fig. 1 for example. Each
illustration or table should be accompanied by a caption. Please note: only high resolution
Figures can be accepted.
Fig. 1: Dependence of the parallel (⃞) and perpendicular (∆)
components of the axisymmetrical self-diffusion tensor on the
inverse temperature for water in MCM-41 as measured at 10 ms
observation time with PFG NMR. The dotted lines may be used
as a guide for the eyes. For comparison, the full line represents
the self-diffusion coefficients of super-cooled bulk liquid water.
Equations should appear with the number in parentheses at the right margin. Throughout
the text and in the equations physical quantities have to be noted in Italic script. The
Experimental section should provide enough detail for reproduction of the findings.
Discussion should provide a critical interpretation of the data described in Results and support
the main conclusions. Results and Discussions may be combined in one Section and
organized into subheadings. References should be cited in the text by square brackets, e.g. [1].
3. Conclusions
Conclusions should summarize the main ideas and findings.
