References must be written in the order to be cited in the bibliography as the following sequence: in the case of academic journals, the bibliography must be written in English as the order of [number], authors, "title", name of academic journal, volume, number, page(s), year of issued; in the case of a book, the order differs: [number], authors, "title of book", page, publisher, year of issue. For references that have direct relation to the content of the manuscript, reference numbers must be written in brackets ([ ]) at the end of the related tex of main body.

Figures. Each figure with its caption below it, on a separate page, should follow the text page on which it is first cited. The quality of the submitted electronic files determines the final quality of the published illustrations. Diagrams, graphs, charts, and other artwork should be created with dark text and lines on white or other light backgrounds. Use of color is acceptable provided it enhances presentation of the science. Remember that artwork and graphs must fit a one-column (8.25 cm) or two-column (17.78 cm) format. The maximum height is 24 cm. For best results, submit illustrations in the actual size at which they should appear. If artwork will need to be reduced, choose a lettering size large enough to be legible after the figure is reduced. Avoid using complex textures and shading; these do not reproduce well. To show a pattern, use a simple crosshatch design. Electronic figures should be submitted in TIFF, EPS, or JPEG formats with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.
