Please note that there is no financial compensation for published articles.
The paper should start with the title, author name(s) and the institutional affiliations of the author(s) where applicable. For research papers, the title should be followed by a brief abstract of 150-300 words.
Text: An introductory paragraph should be included; it should be brief but provide enough detail to explain why the theme of the article is an important issue to the author(s). Liberal use of subheadings helps to organize content logically. Concluding remarks should relate to the introduction and must make a clear summary statement appropriate to the content.
Footnotes: Do not use footnotes for citation of bibliographic material.
Tables: Title all tables and number them in order of their citation in the text.
Figures: Embed all figures in the text document at the end of the file.
Legends: Include legends in the text document at the end of the file.

Except for units of measurement, the first time an abbreviation appears, it should be preceded by the words for which it stands.
