Begin each of the following on a separate page: title page (with each author's name, affiliation, and title), abstract, the first page of the text, references, captions for illustrations, and tables. Titles should be short, specific, and clear. Beginning with the first page of text, number each page consecutively.

If figures or other illustrations in a manuscript have been published previously, the author is responsible for obtaining permission to republish.

Each figure should be placed on a separate page, at the end of the manuscript. Figures should not be distributed throughout the manuscript. Provide figure captions on a separate page, each identified by its proper number and title.

In addition to including the figures in the manuscript, please also attach a separate file for each figure, in the original file format (.jpg, .tiff, etc.) or embedded in PowerPoint or Excel.

Refer to photographs, line drawings, and graphs in the text using Arabic numerals in consecutive order (Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.). Omit all figures that do not enhance the reader's understanding of the text. Do not include photographs of commercial instruments. Figures must be submitted in a high-resolution file.

Each table should be placed on a separate page. Refer to tables in the text by roman numerals in consecutive order (Table I, Table II, etc.). Every table and each column must have an appropriate heading. Table number and title must be placed in a continuous heading above the data presented. Omit tables that contain information already included in the text.

Literature citations in the text must be indicated by Arabic numerals in parentheses. Number each reference separately in the order in which it appears in the text. List cited references at the end of the manuscript in the order of their appearance in the text not alphabetically. Designate submitted articles as in press only if they are formally accepted for publication and give the future volume number and year, if possible. Use unpublished work otherwise, giving the date when the work was completed. For personal communications, include name and date.
