The full title should be in bold and only the first letter of each word in capital.

 

The International System of Units (IS) is the system for expressing units.

Italicize the generic name and the specific epithet, but not the authority (example: Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck). The full scientific name of a species along with its authority should be written in the first citation, then abbreviated in the rest of the text (example: C. sinensis).

Table: the text and tables should discuss the topics in the same sequence and show short, self-explanatory title. In addition, they should show the source of the data if it is the case and be presented in the end of the manuscript. The table shoul be concise, clearly labeled, and should support the text as well as be indicated in the text. Abbreviations should be defined. Tables must avoid vertical lines and double lines and should restrict the use of horizontal lines to its end as well as to separate its top from the rest of the data. 

Figure: it should be identified, with clear and objective legends, and listed separately. The figure should be indicated in the text and presented in the end of the manuscript. If the manuscript is approved for publication the author will be requested to provide the figures with a resolution of at least 300 dpi, in TIF or JPEG format.
