In this section the principal details regarding the edition and structure of the article are presented. For those authors who desire more orientation regarding the technical content of the article, a special guide was developed by the Editorial Board, which is available online at http://revistabme.eia.edu.co.
Length: The unformatted article should be prepared using Microsoft Word with the font Times New Roman, size 12, and margins adjusted to 3 cm. The manuscript may not exceed 20 letter-sized pages with one and a half line spacing (1, 5).
Sections: All original research articles require title, abstract, keywords, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion, conclusion, acknowledgement (optional) and references. It should be noted that the presented structure may change significantly for other types of articles, where the sections may be defined by the authors for the best comprehension of the manuscript content.
The title may not exceed 15 words. In addition, an abbreviated title that best defines the work without the specificity needed in the complete version is required. As mentioned, both the complete and abbreviated title must be translated to Spanish. The authors listed below the manuscript title must be in the order as they wish to appear and indicating their highest academic title, institutional affiliation, and research group (if applies). The email address of the corresponding author is required.
The abstract and resumen should not exceed 250 words, and should cover the methodology, most significant results, and conclusions derived from the work.
For the keywords and palabras clave, around 4 words or short sentences that describe the work are recommended. They must be cited in alphabetical order and with the first letter of each word or sentence in upper case.
Images: Should be delivered in digital format (JPEG), embedded within the text and in corresponding places. The legend will be included under the figure, starting with "Fig. #." (The symbol "#" represents any natural number), in bold, followed by two spaces to start its description. Figure legends should be self-explanatory. Similarly, tables are called with "Table #". Table legends should be placed above the table, in bold. If figures or tables are reproduced or modified from and article, book or web page the original reference must be cited.
High-contrast line figures and tables (processed as images) should be prepared with 600 dpi resolution, 1 bit per pixel. For photographs and grayscale a minimum 220 dpi, 8 bits per pixel resolution is required and 400 dpi (8 bits per pixel) for color images. However, the lasts are mainly used for the electronic version of the journal, and their use in the printed version will only be considered by the Editorial Board in extraordinary cases. So the graphs, diagrams, maps or similar should be interpretable without a reference to the full color image if possible.
References: Authors should distinguish between references and bibliography (which is not accepted). A minimum of 15 references for original research articles is required, and 50 references as minimum for the review type are recommended. Number the citations in square brackets, using a single one in the case of multiple references [1, 5, 10-13].

Equations: Should be numbered on the side of the equation with the number in parentheses. To make the reference it should not say, "as in the Eq. 1" or "in the Equation 1", just refer it as "(1)", except when is used at the begging of a sentence. This should be prepared with an appropriate editor, and a font size of 10 points.
Units and decimal points: The International System of Units must be used. To separate composed units the central point is used, as in the example "A·m2". To express a range write "7 cm - 9 cm" or (7-9) cm. Decimal fractions should be given after a point and use comma for thousands.
Abbreviations and acronyms: The first they appear in the text it should be in brackets and accompanied by a complete explanation of its meaning in the original language.
Footnotes: They will be used for presenting the corresponding author's information in the final version of the article. Although not prohibited to clarify concepts or extend information poorly mentioned on the main text, their use is not encouraged.
