Guidelines for Preparing the Final Manuscript

Article No.:
It is important to adhere to the following guidelines before we could accept your paper.
( ) I. Use the editing tools Word, to prepare your final manuscript text. Also, please indicate its file
name and format on CD-ROM disk. It may cause typing errors if the format of your paper is
not edited using any of the above editing tools.
1. Save the text (and Tables, if any) in one file with file name being Article No. listed above.
2. Save figures in separate files and make sure there is only ONE figure per file. Each figure
file should contain all parts of the figure. For example, if Figure 1 contains four parts (a,
b, c, d), then all parts should be combined in a single file for Figure 1.
( ) II. Preparation of Electronic Graphics Files:
1. For line arts, avoid thin lines, small open symbols, and small letterings because they tend
to be illegible after reduction. [The font size for letterings should be 10 points or greater.]
2. Acceptable formats: PostScript (.ps), Encapsulated PostScript (.eps), or Tagged Image
File Format (.tif).
3. Save ALL illustration files, including line arts, in one CD-ROM with text file.
4. Settings: Set the graphic for 600 dpi resolution for line art, 264 dpi for halftones, and 600
dpi for combinations (line art + halftone)
5. Save line art as black/white bitmap, not grayscale.
6. Save halftones and combinations as grayscale, not black/white bitmap.
7. Submit color files, if any, at 300 dpi TIFF, PS, or EPS format. If selecting a file mode, use
CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) or RGB (red, green, blue).
[You may use Power Point software to save the graphics into the acceptable formats.]
( ) III. Matrix and vector symbols should be typed in bold and italic form.
( ) IV. SI (Metric) units are required in the text, tables, and figures.
( ) V. References:

year of publication of the reference such as “The work (Morris and Horward, 1971)…” or
