Tables: Tables should be prepared using MS Word 2000-2011 versions, Office 2005 - 2021, Windows 365 will be numbered consecutively, given suitable captions and embedded in the manuscript. Tables should not duplicate results presented elsewhere in the manuscript (for example, in graphs). Footnotes to tables should be typed below the table and should be referred to by superscript lowercase letters.

Figures: Figures should be prepared in TIFF/ PNG/JPG format with a resolution >300 dpi. Numbered and must be embedded in-text as appropriate with a caption. Color figures are encouraged. If figures are copy right protected, authors need to get permission from the copy right holder.

Symbols: Abbreviations for units should follow the suggestions of the British Standards publication BS 1991. The full stop should not be included in abbreviations, e.g. m (not m.), ppm (not p.p.m.), '%' and '/' should be used in preference to 'per cent' and 'per'. Where abbreviations are likely to cause ambiguity or not be readily understood by an international readership, units should be put in full.

Units: Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI). If, in certain instances, it is necessary to quote other units, these should be added in parentheses. Temperatures should be given in degrees Celsius. The unit 'billion' is ambiguous and must not be used.

Maths: Authors should make clear any symbols (e.g. Greek characters, vectors, etc.) which may be confused with ordinary letters or characters. Duplicated use of symbols should be avoided where this may be misleading. Symbols should be defined as they arise in the text and separate Nomenclature should also be supplied.

Citation within text: Citations must be made numerically. Groups of references should be listed numerically and chronologically. Example: demonstrated by Lui et al. [1], [2-6], [2, 27] References section: References should be arranged numerically as it appeared in manuscript chronologically.
