One empty line should follow the figure caption. For the photographs, the high resolution must be used.
Formulae (as well inline as spaced) should be written using the MathType or Equation 2.0 editor. Mixed use of MathType or EquationEditor blocks and plain text symbols and letters in formulae is not permitted. Only the formulae referenced in the text should be right numbered by the bracketed Arabic numbers. For each multiline formulae, its number should be placed facing the mid-line of the group. No empty lines between formulae and test should be placed. The left margin for the formulae is 2.0 cm.
Tables should be in the text of the paper. Each table is preceded by the right-adjusted line “Table 1”, “Table 2”, etc. The caption line should be centered and placed on the next line before the table text.
