Original copies of diagrams and drawings should be supplied and should be drawn so as to be suitable for reduction to single column (89 mm) or page width (175 mm) of the journal, with special attention to lettering size. Photographs must be sent as glossy prints.
References should be cited in the text thus: (Kusiak, 1988); and listed in alphabetical order in the reference section, at the end of the paper. The following arrangement should be used:

All contributions are submitted to referees. Names of referees will be kept confidential, but their comments will be relayed at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief.
Proofs and offprints.
Proofs will be sent to authors to check typographic mistakes or errors in fact; no part of the article may be rewritten on proof. All changes and addenda submitted by the authors will be incorporated at the discretion of the Editor. The corrected proofs should be returned to the Publisher within three days of receipt. The corresponding author will receive 25 offprints free of charge. Additional offprints may be ordered on a form which accompanies the proofs. There are no page charges.
Submission of manuscripts.
To ensure rapid refereeing and publication, four copies of the manuscript and illustrations should be submitted. Three photocopies of the illustrations should be sent plus the originals. Manuscripts can be submitted to any Editorial Board member or directly to the Editor-in-Chief or Associate Editors.
