1. Overview

Text should be produced within the dimensions shown on these pages; each column 8.0 cm width with 1.0 cm middle margin, total width of 17 cm.

The manuscripts should be converted to Adobe pdf format before being submitted. Create the pdf file by following settings;
  • - General
  • resolution: 2400 dpi, page width: 21.00cm, height: 29.70cm
  • - Compression
  • grayscale images; bicubic downsampling: 264 dpi, compression: jpeg, quality: maximum

6. Use of SI units

All abstracts must use SI units in text, figures, or tables.

7. Mathematical

All mathematical expressions should be included in the manuscript. Care should be taken to distinguish between capital and lowercase letters, between zero (0) and the letter (O), between the numerical (1) and the letter (1), etc. Mathematical expressions should fit into a single column. Equations that might extend beyond the width of one column (fractions that should not be broken or long expressions enclosed in parentheses) should be rephrased to go on two or more lines within column width.

8. Graphics

All graphics must be embedded in the manuscript. Please use high-resolution images insofar as file size of the whole manuscript does not exceed the limit in the online submission system (2.0Mbyte for pdf file). Following resolutions are targets for graphics in the journal: the graphic for 600dpi resolution for line art, 264 dpi for halftones, and 600 dpi for combinations (line art + halftone). Ensure that line weights will be 0.5 point or greater. Line weights below 0.5 points will reproduce poorly.

9. Table

All tables should be numbered consecutively and have a caption consisting of the table number and a brief title. This number should be used when referring to the table in text.
Tables may be inserted as part of the text, or included on a separate page immediately following of as close as possible to its first reference.

10. Reference

All bibliographical references should be numbered and listed at the end of the manuscript in a section called “References.” References should be typed in the format of JAST and referenced in the text by superscript numbers with close bracket. The superscript numbers and close bracket appear inside the punctuation if the citation applies to a whole sentence or clause1).  When more than one reference is cited in one place, separate the numbers by commas without spaces2,3).
