Photographs, on glossy paper (9 by 13 cm or larger), should display sharp contrast. Figures, tables and photographs should be numbered according to their reference in text. Illustrations should be edited in CorelDraw (*.CDR), DrawPerfect (*.WPG) or in any other vector graphics form e.g. HPGL, Encapsulated PostScript (*.EPS), Computer Graphics Metafile *.CGM) or bitmaps (*.TIF, *.PCX).

References to literature within the text should be given in the form: the name of the author(s) and the year of publication (in parentheses), e.g. “Smith (1990) underlines…”, “As shown in Smith (1990)…”. In case of more than two authors of the cited publication the "et al." shortcut should be used.
