Tables

Place tables as close as possible to the text they refer to and aligned center. A table is labeled Table and given a number (e.g., Table 4: Effect of temperature on pseudo-first-order rate constants (kobs/ky) and thermodynamic parameters for the reaction of Hg(II)–Gly-L-Ala complex with ninhydrin.) it should be numbered consecutively. The table label and caption or title appears 8pt space above the table, 10pt space after the text or paragraph if any; it should be uniforms fonts and font size, and use 10pt font size and Times New Roman style and aligned center.

The label and title should be in line with the figure number (e.g., Figure 1: Mapping nonlinear data to a higher dimensional feature space), it should be uniforms fonts and font size; use 10pt font size and Times New Roman style and aligned center. Source (if any) appear underneath, flush left. Figures should be at good enough quality.

Clear digital photographs (high resolution) are accepted in TIF or JPEG formats.    Field photographs must contain a scale.
