Full Manuscript Preparation

Points to note on formatting your MS Word file

Files should be in MS Word format only and should be formatted for direct printing. Figures and tables should be embedded and not supplied separately. Please make sure that you use as much as possible normal fonts in your documents. Special fonts, such as fonts used in the Far East (Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc.) may cause problems during processing. To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the "spellchecker" function of MS Word.

  1. Paper structure

    Papers should be prepared in the following order:

    Introduction, to explain the background work, the practical applications and the nature and purpose of the paper
    Body, to contain the primary message, with clear lines of thought and validation of the techniques described
    Acknowledgements (when appropriate)
    Appendices (when appropriate)
    Section headings should be centred, in capital letters and numbered consecutively, starting with the Introduction. Sub-section headings should be in capital and lower-case italic letters, numbered 1.1, 1.2, etc, and left justified, with second and subsequent lines indented.

  2. Formatting your document

    1. Title page
      The first page should include:
      1. Title: The title of the paper shall be written using sentence case.
      2. Each authors name and affiliation, including present address.
      3. Abstract: Insert an abstract of 300-350 words, giving a brief account of the most relevant aspects of the paper.
      4. Keywords: Insert 5?10 keywords.

    2. Heading styles
      Insert your heading text and establish the appropriate heading style.

    3. Tables
      All tables should be numbered with Arabic (1,2,3,...n). Headings should be placed above tables, underlined and centred. Leave one line space between the heading and the table. Only horizontal lines should be used within a table, to distinguish the column headings from the body of the table. Tables must be embedded into the text and not supplied separately.

    4. Illustrations
      All figures should be numbered with Arabic (1,2,3,...n). All photographs, schemas, graphs and diagrams are to be referred to as figures. Line drawings should be good quality scans or true electronic output. Low-quality scans are not acceptable. Figures must be embedded into the text and not supplied separately. Lettering and symbols should be clearly defined either in the caption or in a legend provided as part of the figure. Figures should be placed at the top or bottom of a column wherever possible, as close as possible to the first reference to them in the paper. The figure number and caption should be typed below the illustration, left justified, with subsequent lines indented.

    5. Equations
      All equations should be numbered with Arabic (1,2,3,...n).

    6. References
      In the text the number of the reference should be given in square brackets [yy].For references with more than two authors, text citations should be shortened to the first name followed by et al., e.g.

      Jones [1] discovered that... Recent results from Brown and Carter [2] and Green et al. [3] indicate that...

      Only essential references, which are directly referred to in the text, should be included in the reference list.

      References must be listed in numerical order at the end of the paper. Do not begin them on a new page unless this is absolutely necessary. They should be prepared according to the sequential numeric system making sure that all material mentioned is generally available to the reader.

      Journal references should include: author?s initials and surname; initials and surnames of remaining authors; the title of the paper (if provided), journal title, volume, year and page numbers.

      References to books should include: author?s initials and surname; initials and surnames of remaining authors; the book title, the name of the publisher, place of publication and the year of publication. References to a chapter in an edited book should follow the following format: G.R. Mettam, L.B. Adams, How to prepare an electronic version of your article, in: B.S. Jones, R.Z. Smith (Eds.), Introduction to the Electronic Age, E-Publishing Inc., New York, 1999, pp. 281-304.

      Here is an example of some references listed according to the sequential numeric system: [espcrc1 style]
      1. S. Scholes, Discuss. Faraday Soc. No. 50 (1970) 222.
      2. O.V. Mazurin and E.A. Porai-Koshits (eds.), Phase Separation in Glass, North- Holland, Amsterdam, 1984.
      3. Y. Dimitriev and E. Kashchieva, J.Mater. Sci. 10 (1975) 1419.
      4. D.L. Eaton, Porous Glass Support Material, US PatentNo. 3 904 422 (1975).

    7. Footnote
      Footnotes should be avoided if possible. Necessary footnotes should be denoted in the text by consecutive superscript numbers. The footnotes should be typed single spaced, and in smaller type size, at the foot of the column in which they are mentioned, and separated from the main text by a line extending to just over halfway across the column. Leave a one-line space above and below this line.

    8. General guidelines for the preparation of your text
      Avoid hyphenation at the end of a line. Symbols denoting vectors and matrices should be indicated in bold type. Scalar variable names should normally be expressed using italics.

      Weights and measures should be expressed in SI units. All non-standard abbreviations or symbols must be defined when first mentioned, or a glossary provided.
