Use Times New Roman, 12 pts, 2.54 cm margins on all sides. Use headings as appropriate.

Be sure to include the author(s) names and affiliations at the top of the first page.

Preparation of copy

Use italics rather than underlining where applicable. Use endnotes rather than footnotes.

Tables and figures

Tables and figures should be numbered separately and placed together at the end of the document. Figures can be sent in separate image files. Insert a location note at the appropriate place in the text (e.g., ”Insert Table 2 here”). Prepare tables as simply as possible. Figures must be sharp and clear and must fit within the text area of a journal page (115 mm × 175 mm).
