  5. When citing, the sentences shall be quoted or paraphrased.
  6. The system of measurement refers to The International System of Units (SI).
  7. Tables: Tables should be self-contained and complement, not duplicate, information in the text. They should be supplied as editable files, not pasted as images. Legends should be concise but comprehensive – the table, legend, and footnotes must be understandable without reference to the text. All abbreviations must be defined in footnotes. Footnote symbols: †, ‡, §, ¶, should be used (in that order) and *, **, *** should be reserved for P-values. Statistical measures such as SD or SEM should be identified in the headings. Tables are sequentially numbered with the table title and number above the table. Tables should be centered in the column OR on the page. Tables should be followed by a line space (12pt). Elements of a table should single-spaced. However, double spacing can be used to show groupings of data or to separate parts within the table.  Table headings should be in 10pt not bold.

Figures submitted in colour may be reproduced in colour online. Please note, however, that it is preferable that line figures (e.g. graphs and charts) are supplied in black and white so they are legible if printed by a reader in black and white. Line art: Resolution for line art needs to be higher than for images because each individual line must be more precisely rendered. Larger fonts make for easier reading. Preferred 600 dpi. Images: Though many webbased images often appear at very low resolutions (72 dpi or lower), readers will only benefit if the images offer hi-resolution detail. Preferred 300 dpi.
