Submission Guidelines

The formatted paper should have a title, authors, abstract, keywords, introduction, method, results, discussion, and references. Use Times New Roman 12 font size. No justifications or word spacing changes are allowed. Default settings are usually sufficient. Every page should have 1" (2.54 cm) margins on the top, bottom, left, and right. All text should be double-spaced. This will make the right-side look 'ragged' and uneven. Allow the word processor to auto-wrap sentences. Don't divide or hyphenate words at the end of a line. Indent the first line of each paragraph with tab. Specify the keyboard or word processor's special character feature.
