Manuscript Preparation

Full-length manuscripts should be submitted in Microsoft Word (Windows based) (1500-2500 words) via attached email to . Manuscripts should be organized into separate and distinct sections, such as Keywords, Abstract, Introduction, Experimental, Discussion, Results, Conclusion, and References. Other guidelines to follow when preparing the manuscript include: A list of keywords should be submitted with the manuscript. References should be cited in text in order of use. All Figures and Tables should be referenced in text, in order of use (see Illustrations, below).

Having problems with downloading? If you are getting garbled text on your screen, instead of a download, then your browser is set to try display these files rather than download non-HTML documents. Make sure your browser is set to download and not display UNKNOWN or non-HTML files.


Charts, graphs and other illustrations are to be embedded in Word (Windows environment), and also submitted as separate electronic files for the production editor. This makes it easier to make changes (such as spelling corrections). Preferred formats are JPG, PCX, and TIF as well as native Excel (*.XLS) and Power Point (*.PPT). Figures should be referenced in the text and Figure legends included. The legend should explain all symbols used in the Figure. Tables should be placed on a separate page. Tables should be referenced in text with Roman Numerals in consecutive order. Each Table should be identified (similar to a Figure legend) and each column within the table should have an appropriate heading.

Identify all illustrative material with the figure number and principal author's name written in pencil on the back. Figure legends should be included, each identified by its proper number. All symbols used in the figures should be explained in the legends. Each table should be on a separate page. In text, tables should be referred to by roman numerals in consecutive order. Every table and column within a table must have an appropriate heading.
