Use at most three levels of headings that correspond to chapters, sections and subsections. The first level headings for chapter titles should be in 10pt, bold, justified, and upper case font. Leave one-blank line before and after the first level headings, respectively.


2.1. The Second Level Headings


The second level headings should be in 10pt, bold, justified, and capitalized font. Leave one blank line both before and after the heading, respectively.


2.1.1. The third level headings


These headings should be in 10pt, italic, and sentence case. Insert one blank line before and after the headings. The further lower level headings should be avoided. 




Figures or Tables should be sized the whole width of a column, as shown in Table 1 or Fig. 1 (Figs. 1 and/to n) in the present example, or the whole width over two columns. Do not place any text besides the figures or tables. Do not place them altogether at the end of manuscripts.  


3.1. Tables


Table numbers and labels should be placed on top of the table, and left- and right-justified. Number the tables consecutively and locate them after and close to where they are first referenced. Leave one line between the table, label and the text. Tables should be auto-fit to window and no vertical lines or borders are needed.

Locate them after and close to where they are first referenced. Leave one blank line before and after the caption. Please do not compress the figure (images of 600 dpi resolution or more are preferable). Draw figures clearly and embed text in the image properly. Do not cut and paste from another text and ensure that after printing, the images look good and readable. Do not use outer boundary.

3.3. Equations


Equations and symbols should be typed in the equation editor. Number equations consecutively with equation numbers in parentheses, as in


 Refer to “Eq. (1)” not “equation (1),” except at the beginning of a sentence: like “Equation (1) is ....”

If your native language is not English and if you feel that you need to go-though, please get a native English-speaking colleague to proofread your paper. The equation number, enclosed in parentheses, is placed right justified. Symbols and notation should be defined when they first appear. Use one blank line before and after the equation.

You may use color figures and photographs in your paper. These will appear in color on the online version of the journal. However, please check that your color figures are legible when printed in monochrome (black and white), as this is the way they will be reproduced in the hardcopy version of the journal.
