An abstract of 100-200 words is needed for articles. Except for short communications, descriptive heading should be used to divide the paper into its component parts. Use the International System of Units (SI).

References to published literature should be quoted in the text citing authors and the year of publication or consecutive numbers. These are to be grouped together at the end of the paper. Journal references should be arranged as below. Titles for journal or book articles are helpful for readers, but may be omitted.
