Manuscript Preparation:

The manuscript should be typed double space, on the recto side only, with 3.5 cm. wide margins. All pages must be numbered. Sections headings are numbered according to the international numbering system (1; 1.1.; 1.1.1; etc.). ‘Tables’ with titles and ‘figures’ with captions should be placed on ‘separate sheets’ at the end of the manuscript (see below for further details). They should not be placed in the text, but must be referenced in the text at the appropriate place. ‘Punctuation’ peculiar to the English language should be used (semi-colons, colons, question marks and exclamation marks, are never preceded by a space in English). Abbreviations are punctuated. There is no space between opening and closing brackets and the following and preceding words. Small capitals should not be used, and normal capitals are accented.

Title page:

The title page should contain: the ‘title of the paper’ (this must be brief but explicit), the ‘forename’ (in full) and ‘surname’ of each author, the ‘authors’ affiliations (complete address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail) with their ‘positions’, and the name of the corresponding author.

Abstract Page:

An ‘abstract’ of about 150 words is required. 5 to 7 ‘keywords’ should be provided (in small letters and bold type, separated by slashes).

Figures:

All illustrations (graphs, diagrams, and photographs) should be numbered in the text, in italics, using Arabic numerals in order of appearance. E.g. (Fig. 1). If possible, these should be submitted electronically, in jpg format, with sufficient resolution (300 dpi for ‘illustrations’, 600 dpi for ‘line drawings’; these should also be ‘included’ at the end of the text Word file. Figures only available on paper should be submitted in separate sheets (authors’ names and number of figures should be finely penciled in blue on reverse of originals). Previously published figures cannot be accepted. No illustration will be redrawn; consequently, they must be good enough to allow direct reproduction. Original drawings on white paper are required. The same symbols and units must be used in figures, tables, and text. All composite figures should be mounted together and the parts labeled (a), (b), (c), etc. Page-size mounting photographs count as a single figure. All maps, field sketche and photographs should include a metric bare scale. Illustrations will be published in the form of one column 80 mm wide (exceptionally 170 mm wide for complicated figures). So, ‘lettering’ of the original illustrations (one figure per A4 page) should be large enough to be clearly legible when the illustrations are reduced to one-column format. All figures will be normally printed in black and white. Color illustrations may be published upon approval of the Editor-in-Chief. Each figure should be briefly and clearly described. These ‘Figure captions’ should be presented together on a separate sheet, at the end of the paper. Remarks like «For explanation see text » should be avoided.

Tables:

Each table should be typed, with special care, on a separate page included at the end of the text file. Captions must be integrated into the heading of the table which will comprise horizontal lines. Tables must not be redundant with figures. They should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals (Table 1 for instance), and must be cited in the text.

References:

References should be limited to the minimum number necessary for the citation of pertinent material. References to internal reports, etc are to be avoided: the statement ‘personal communication’ with publication date in the text is generally preferable. References should be numbered with Arabic numerals enclosed in square brackets in the order they are cited in the text. All entries in the reference list must correspond to references in the text and vice versa, from [1] to [n]. The titles of journals should be abbreviated according to the standardized rules (cf ‘ISI’, ‘Current Contents’, for instance). Titles for which no abbreviation is given should be written out in full. The style and punctuation of the references should follow the format illustrated in the following examples (please note that the titles of journals are in Roman).

     1-Article from a journal: Author Name (s), (Year). Title, Journal, Vol. (--), pp: -- - --.
