Please type all pages with single spacing and wide margins on one side of the paper.
Title page, abstract, tables, legends to figures and reference list should each
be provided on separate pages of the manuscript.
Use a normal, plain font (e.g., 12-point Times New Roman) for text. The text should
be in single-column format. Number the pages. Keep the layout of the text as simple
as possible. In particular, do not use the options to justify text or to hyphenate
words. However, do use bold face, italics, subscripts, superscripts etc. Do not
embed 'graphically designed' equations or tables, but prepare these using the facility
in Word or as a separate file in Excel. When preparing tables, if you are using
a table grid, use only one grid for each individual table and not a grid for each
row. Do not prepare tables in PowerPoint. Do not import the figures into the text
file but, instead, indicate their approximate locations directly on the manuscript.
To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the spellchecker.
The title page should include: the title, the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the
author(s), an address for correspondence, and telephone numbers for editorial queries.
Original and review articles should include an Abstract (a single paragraph) of
no more than 250 words and 3-6 key words for abstracting and indexing purposes.
Please do not split the article into separate files (title page as one file, text
as another, etc.). Do not allow your computer to introduce word splits and do not
use a 'justified' layout. Please adhere strictly to the general instructions on
style/arrangement and, in particular, the reference style of the journal. It is
very important that you save your file in the standard format for the program you
are using (Microsoft Word docx format or doc format). Please write your text in
good English (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of these).
