Files should be named accordingly; e.g. Figure 2 doc. wide margins be provided. Tables that may break in two pages should be avoided. Colored graphs in black and white, for conversion at a later stage does not always produce the desired results particularly when graphs have to reduce for printing purposes. Figures and tables should be numbered consecutively in the typescript. All figures and tables should have caption (above the table below the figure). Figures and tables are not edited and it is the author’s responsibility to produce them in publication quality.
