Figures
All photographs, graphs and diagrams should be referred to as a Figure and they should be numbered consecutively (1, 2, etc.). Multi-part figures ought to be labeled with lower case letters (a, b, etc.). Please insert keys and scale bars directly in the figures. Relatively small text and great variation in text sizes within figures should be avoided as figures are often reduced in size. Figures may be sized to fit approximately within the column(s) of the journal. Provide a detailed legend (without abbreviations) to each figure, refer to the figure in the text and note its approximate location in the margin. Please place the legends in the manuscript after the references. 
 
Tables
Each table should be numbered consecutively. In tables, footnotes are preferable to long explanatory material in either the heading or body of the table. Such explanatory footnotes, identified by superscript letters, should be placed immediately below the table. Please provide a caption (without abbreviations) to each table, refer to the table in the text and note its approximate location in the margin. Finally, please place the tables after the figure legends in the manuscript.
Figures and tables should have their positions clearly marked and be provided after the references in the main text.


Notes
Please use endnotes rather than footnotes. Notes should be indicated by consecutive superscript numbers in the text and listed at the end of the article before the References. A source reference note should be indicated by means of an asterisk after the title. This note should be placed at the bottom of the first page. 
 
Acknowledgements
Acknowledgements of people, grants, funds, etc. should be placed in a separate section before the References.
 
Appendices
Supplementary material should be collected in an Appendix. 
 
Quotations
Quotations less than three lines long should be incorporated into the text using double quotation marks. For longer quotations (more than three lines or two sentences), use 'Quotation' style in the styles menu.
