Formatting and Structure

Formatting

 

 

1.Manuscripts should be double-spaced typed (including the abstract, references, and figure captions). Authors should adhere to using 12-point font size (Times New Roman) and single column format: A4 (210 x 297 mm) with 20 mm margins, or 8 1/2 x 11 in. with 1 in. margins and page numbers at the bottom to facilitate peer review.

2.Maximum 5,000 words or word equivalents for the entire submission (excluding references).

3.Units of Measurement: ONLY SI Units (including tables and figures).

4.Tables should be in portrait format (Each table is not to exceed a width of 150 mm (6 in.): Each table should have a title and a number, which is cited in the body of the main text. All numbered references must be cited in sequential order (that is, 1,2,3...). Do not create your table as an Excel file. Do not place tables as graphics, do not use text boxes within table cells, and do not place tables in landscape format. Do use a minimum of 8 pt. text size.

5.Figures should be in portrait format: Each figure should have a title and a number, which is cited in the body of the main text. All numbered figures must be cited in sequential order (that is, 1, 2, 3...). Figures are typically reduced before publication and, therefore, clarity in the original submission is essential.
