If abbreviations are used in tables and figures, these abbreviations should be explained just below.

Units: SI (System International d'Units) measurement units should be used in all manuscripts. Use a dot as a decimal fraction (like 1.25 instead of 1,25). “/” should not be used in units and a space should be given between units (such as m s-1 instead of m/s, J s-1 instead of J/s, kg m s-2 instead of kg m/s2). A space must be left between the number and the symbol (such as 4 kg N ha-1, 3 kg m−1 s−2, 20 N m, 1000 s−1, 100 kPa, 22 °C). Exceptions to this rule are the degrees, minutes, and seconds symbols (°, ′, and ″) used for planar angles. They should be placed immediately after the number (like 10°, 45', 60"). The abbreviation of liter should be indicated as “l”. If they are not at the end of the sentence, do not put a period at the end of the symbols (kg, not kg.).

Formulas: Formulas should be numbered and the formula number should be shown in parentheses, aligned to the right next to the formula. Word math processor should be used in writing the formulas, main characters should be in 12 points, variables should be in italics, numbers and mathematical expressions should be given plain. If it is to be cited in the text, it should be given in the form of “Equation 1” (…the related model is given in Equation 1).
