Instructions for preparing manuscripts on a PC

Form of manuscript: 

Papers must be in English and presented in the following order:
- Title of the paper
- Initial(s) and surname of each author, the name of the author to whom communications should be addressed being underlined
- Name and place of the institution or hospital where the work was done
- Abstract (10-15 lines of typescript)
- Text of paper
- References
- Captions of figures and illustrations
- Tables (Arabic numerals), prepared on separate pages


The minimum resolution for scanned line figures is 800 dpi, for fine details (small lettering or hairlines) at least 1000 dpi. For scanned photos, 300 dpi is enough.

Saving Illustration Data 

  • Save the illustrations individually, in the same size as they should appear in print. Check that all details, including any lettering, are clearly visible, and enclose a printout for control purposes.
  • Suitable data formats are TIFF 5.0 RGB, TIFF 6.0 CMYK, and EPS (remember to include any fonts used). Data for color illustrations should be compiled, if possible, in CMYK mode.
  • You may compress large data files, if necessary, in zip or tar format.
    Copy the compression program, as well, in case we have difficulty in decompressing them.
  • Label the disk(s) with your name and the title of the work, and indicate the operating system and program used (with version number).

Print Masters 

If you do not compile your illustrations on a PC, please send us good-contrast prints or transparencies (black and white), or the original drawings for line figures.
Laser printouts of graphics produced with Excel, PowerPoint, or Harvard Graphics are suitable for reproduction.

  • Author name/s and year of publication in parentheses:
    One author: (Miller 1991; Smith 2001)
    Two authors: (Miller and Smith 1992)
    Three or more authors: (Miller et al. 1994)
The reference list should be ordered alphabetically. In an alphabetical list, the following order is used for multiple works by an author:
  • First, all works by the author alone, ordered by year of publication
  • Next, all works by the author with a coauthor, alphabetically by coauthor
  • Finally, all works by the author with several coauthors, ordered chronologically by year of publication
