Manuscripts should be typewritten, double-spaced, with a one-inch margin on all sides, and paginated consecutively throughout the paper. Submission should be
made in MS Word, and should be clearly identified with the authorsí names and file name. Include a shortened
version of the title suitable for the running head, not exceeding 50 character spaces. Each article should be summarized in an abstract of not more than 100
words; abbreviations, diagrams, and reference to the text should be avoided in the abstract.
Each manuscript must be accompanied by a statement that it has not been published elsewhere and that it has not been submitted simultaneously for publication
elsewhere. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce copyrighted material from other sources and are required to sign an agreement for the
transfer of copyright to the publisher. All accepted manuscripts, artwork, and photographs become the property of the publisher.
All manuscripts should also include a biographical sketch of the author, not to exceed 100 words, on a separate page. The corresponding author must include a
complete mailing address, telephone number, and fax number. Illustrations. Illustrations submitted (line drawings, halftones, photos, photomicrographs, etc.)
should be clean originals or digital files. Digital files are recommended for highest quality reproduction and should follow these guidelines:
- 300 dpi or higher
- sized to fit on journal page
- EPS, TIFF, or PSD format only
- submitted as separate files, not embedded in text files
Color illustrations will be considered for publication; however, the author will be required to bear the full cost involved in their printing and publication.
The charge for the first page with color is $900.00. The next three pages with color are $450 per page. A custom quote will be provided for color art totaling
more than 4 journal pages. Good-quality color prints or files should be provided in their final size. The publisher has the right to refuse publication of color
prints deemed unacceptable.
Tables and figures should not be embedded in the text, but should be included as separate sheets or files. A short descriptive title should appear above each
table with a clear legend and any footnotes suitably identified below. All units must be included. Figures should be completely labeled, taking into account
necessary size reduction. Captions should be typed, double-spaced, on a separate sheet. All original figures should be clearly marked in pencil on the reverse
side with the number, authorís name, and top edge indicated.
Reprints. Each corresponding author will receive up to three copies of the issue in which the article appears. Reprints of individual articles are available
for order at the time authors review page proofs. A discount on reprints is available to authors who order before print publication.
