Additional notes:
Subdivision - numbered sections
Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.(then 1.1., 1.2., ...), 2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering).

Figure captions
Ensure that each illustration has a caption. A caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used.

Number tables consecutively with Arabic numerals in accordance with their appearance in the text. Avoid vertical rules. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Tables should never be included within the text, because file(s) containing tables are attached separately in the electronic submission system.
