Mathematical Notation

Notations should be clearly explained within the text. Equations should be centered on the page. If equations are numbered, type the number in parentheses flush with the right margin. Unusual symbols and Greek letters should be identified. For equations that may be too wide to fit in a single column, indicate appropriate breaks.

Table and Figures

Indicate table placements within text. Camera-ready tables should be typed flush with the left-hand margin and have proper labelling of sources, column headings, and other notations. Once the manuscript has been accepted for publication, complex tables and figures (diagrams, charts, graphs, etc.) should be prepared professionally for camera-ready reproduction.


Reference citations within the text should consist of the author’s last name and date of publication, without punctuation, enclosed within parentheses, and should be inserted before punctuation and/or at a logical break in the sentence. If several citations are needed, separate them with semicolons, and list alphabetically. If two or more works by an author have the same year, distinguish them by placing a, b, etc. after the year.

References should be double-spaced and attached on a separate page. Works by single author, list chronogically; two authors, alphabetically and then chronogically; three authors, the same; four or more, list chronogically . References should be in the following format:
