General: The text of each paper
must be single-spaced, single column, with margins of 2.5
cm on each side, and a font size of 12 pt is required. Paper
size is A4. The font should be Times or Times Roman. The corresponding
author should be identified (including a fax number and e-mail
address). Full postal addresses must be given for all co-authors.
The article should not exceed six pages.
Abstract: The essential contents
of each paper must be briefly recapitulated in an abstract.
References should not appear in the Abstract.
Text: Each manuscript should
be presented in the following order: Title, Authors, Affiliations,
Abstract, Keywords, Main text, Acknowledgements, Appendix,
References. The text should be organized under appropriate
section headings (single numbers should be used for headings
of main sections, two or three numbers, separated by a dot,
should be used for to indicate subheadings e.g. 1.2 or 1.2.2).
All headings should be placed on the left-hand side of the
text, with a single line space above and below.
Main headings should be in bold. All measurements should
be given in metric (SI) units.
The corresponding author should be identified with an asterisk
and footnote. The technical description of the methods used
should only be given in detail when such methods are new,
although it can be presented in the appendix.
Appendix: Mathematical analyses
and other material, the details of which are subordinate to
the main theme of the paper, should normally be put into one
or more appendices. Equations in appendices are labelled (A1),
(A2), etc. Figures and Tables are labelled with an "A"
as well (Fig. A1, Table A1).
References: All publications
cited in the text should be presented in a list of references
following the text of the manuscript. In the text refer to
references with the author's name (without initials) and year
of publication (e.g. Henderson, 1982). For three or more authors,
use the first author followed by "et al.", in the
text (e.g. Davis et al., 1996). The list of references should
be arranged alphabetically by authors' names. The manuscript
should be carefully checked to ensure that the spelling of
authors' names and dates are exactly the same in the text
as in the reference list.

Tables: All tables should be
numbered and should have a caption. Rows of tables should
be separated by of horizontal lines, with a bold line after
the first row. Vertical lines should be avoided. Each table
must be referred to in the text. Column heads and units of
measure must be clearly indicated. Tables (along with their
footnotes or captions) should be completely intelligible without
reference to the text.
Illustrations: All illustrations
should be provided in suitable for reproduction (with a resolution
of 300 dpi for photos and 600 dpi for line graphs). Photographs,
charts and diagrams are all to be referred to as "Figure(s)"
and should be numbered consecutively in the order to which
they are referred. Each figure must be provided with a caption
that permits the figure to be understood without reference
to the text.
