All tables have to be created with Word "Insert Table" function and should be cited consecutively in the main text by Arabic numbers (Table 1, Table 2, etc). Each table has to have a descriptive title on the top of the table. Provide explanations for any nonstandard abbreviations in footnotes to the table.

Figure 
Figure legends including figure number, a short title and detailed description should be embedded at the end of text file. All figures should be cited consecutively in the main text by Arabic numbers (Figure 1, Figure 2, etc).  All figures must be prepared in 500dpi resolution and embedded in the Word File at the end of the manuscript and labeled with the corresponding figure numbers. The text in all figures must be in Arial Font and clearly readable. Photographs of a person should render them unidentifiable or include their written permission.  

How to count page numbers:
Before submission or after acceptance, type your manuscript single spaced, and make all the characters in the text, tables, figure legends, footnotes and references in a single typeface and point size as 10 pt Times New Roman. This will save space, make it easier for reviewers and editors to process the submitted work, and contributes to slowing down global warming by using less paper.
