2 Guidelines for the submission of text

Make all submissions as word-processed documents compatible with Microsoft Word. The manuscript and references should be double spaced, presented in an easily readable, standard font and size (such as 10 or 12 point Times New Roman or Arial). Number all pages. All manuscripts must be submitted in English; US (Webster) or UK (Oxford) spelling may be used. The manuscript must be accompanied by a cover letter, containing the e-mail address, fax and phone number of the corresponding author. Also provide an abbreviated title of a maximum of 35 characters.

Title: Type the title of the paper in bold; do not capitalize main words. In the title, clearly indicate the scope and findings of the paper and provide an accurate indication of the contents.

Authors: Give the names of authors in full, in capitals and small capitals (e.g. First name Initial(s) Last name). Give the department, institution and address (including postal code and country) for each author on separate lines after the list of authors and cite them by superscript Arabic numerals.

Indicate the author to whom correspondence should be directed by an asterisk(*); for the corresponding author, give the e-mail address as a footnote.

Abstract: Include an abstract of 150–250 words summarizing the significant findings.

Keywords: Supply 6 to 12 words or phrases to aid in indexing the article.

Text headings: Align headings with the left margin and begin the text on the next line. There is no dot after the heading number. For example:

first-level: 1 HEADING (bold, all capitals)

second-level: 1.1 Heading (bold, initial capital and lower case)

third level: 1.1.1 Heading: (underscore, initial capital and lower case)

Tables: Number tables consecutively and include a clear descriptive title. Give table footnotes a symbol as listed in the Footnotes section, proceeding by row rather than by column order.

Indicate table positions in the text; display each table and title on a separate page, after the reference list.

Units: Use SI units throughout, including the kelvin (K) for temperature.

Nomenclature: A section on nomenclature is optional; if necessary, add it after the text and before the reference list. Tabulate the symbol, its meaning and its SI unit.

Acknowledgements: Present information concerning grant support for research and assistance of colleagues in this section, not in footnotes.

References: Cite references in the text by Arabic numerals [in square brackets], numbered consecutively. List references in full at the end of the paper in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text. Give the surnames of authors followed by initials. Cite all authors of each paper; “et al.” may only be used as a placeholder after the 6th author. Abbreviate journal titles according to the Web of science journal title abbreviations list: References must include the DOI identifier of the quoted work, if available. Obtain DOIs from: Reference formats are as follows:

Mention of figures and tables within text: Refer to figures, tables within the text by their full names (e.g. “See Table 1”, “Figure 1 illustrates...”).

Footnotes: Minimize the use of footnotes[a]. Footnotes should be indicated in the text by small letters (superscript) in alphabetical order. Do not use numerals for footnote call-outs, as they are used to indicate affiliations (see Authors section) and can be mistaken for bibliographical references or exponents. Type each footnote at the bottom of the page on which its text call-out appears. Footnotes to a table should be indicated by the same symbols. Reinitialize the symbol sequence for each table. Type footnotes to a table directly beneath the table.

3 Specifications for the submission of figures and artwork

Figures should be provided as separate electronic files, preferably in PDF, EPS, TIFF or JPG format. Imperatively, provide all electronic images as high-resolution files.

Save photographic images (monochrome or colour) at a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. Save line art at least with 600 dpi.

Provide full captions, photo credits (if necessary) and permission statements (if necessary) for each photo and figure. Label all images clearly, with the figure number in the file name. Top should be indicated if it is not immediately apparent.

Indicate the position of each figure in the text. Display figures with their captions on separate pages at the end of the manuscript.

Whenever the use of colour is critical for understanding a figure, the journal publishes the figure in colour without charge to authors. Reprints in colour will carry a surcharge. Details are provided on the reprint order form.

For artwork originally published elsewhere, it is the author’s responsibility to obtain written permission to reprint.
