Minimum and maximum picture or graph sizes are 1 column (8 cm) and 1 page (17 cm), respectively. Avoid using unnecessary background image. Choose 2-dimensional bar graphs with line not solid or block shading. Each axis must be completed with the variable name. For line graph use 1 point (1 point weight). All images must use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for a 600 dpi color. The unit of measurement used should be clearly written down. Picture and graph are created in the box.
    • Equations are written using Microsoft Equation with Metric/International System for measurement units. The word percent is written as “%” and not separated from the preceding number (for example 10%). Equation is written in right aligned, sorted by sequence number written in brackets.
