1. Tables

All tables should be numbered with Arabic numerals. Headings should be placed above tables, left justified. 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, and immediately above and below the table. Tables must be embedded into the text and not supplied separately.

iii. Illustrations

All figures should be numbered with Arabic numerals (1, 2,). 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.

iv. Equations

Equations and formulae should be typed in Mathtype, and numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals in parentheses on the right hand side of the page (if referred to explicitly in the text). They should also be separated from the surrounding text by one space.

v. References

References should be listed at the end of the paper. Authors should ensure that every reference in the text appears in the list of references and vice versa. When the names are mentioned in the text indicate reference citations as Van der Geer, Hanraads, and Lupton (2000); Strunk and White (1979) and when the names are not part of the text use (Mettam and Adams, 1994).

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

vi. Footnotes

Footnotes should be avoided if possible. Necessary footnotes should be denoted in the text by consecutive superscript letters. The footnotes should be typed single spaced, and in smaller type size (8pt), at the foot of the page in which they are mentioned, and separated from the main text by a short line extending at the foot of the column.
