3. Main Text
(1) The manuscript is properly prepared with the main sections labeled (e.g., Abstract, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgments, and References).
(2) References to published work should be indicated at the appropriate place using brackets (e.g.,-), numbered consecutively, and a list of references in numerical order should be provided at the end of the manuscript.
(3) Sources of materials and instruments should be clearly presented together with the names of the appropriate cities and countries.
(4) Units: Internationally accepted units of measurement must be used. The units of measurement are used in conjunction with their numerical values; the units should be abbreviated as suggested below. If more commonly used units are adopted, conversion factors should be given at their first occurrence. Greek symbols may be used. (e.g., %, ºC, nm, µm (not m), mm, cm, cm3, m, h (or hr), min, s (or sec), µg, mg, g (or gm), kg, cal, kcal, in. (or write out inch), ml [write out liter(s)] ).
(5) Equations and symbols : All equations and formulas should be typed in separate lines, and numbered by Arabic numerals in parentheses on the right, sequentially increasing. References to equations or formulas should be quoted in parentheses.
(6) Tables : All tables should be designated by Arabic numerals, sequentially increasing. A self explanatory title, indicating a content of a table should be included. The table title should have the first letter of the first word capitalized. Details of all necessary additional information can be included in the table footnotes. Preferred font is Medieval Gothic with 9 pt. Table should not contain vertical linings and the captions should be understandable without referring the text.
(7) Figures : All figures should be designated by Arabic numerals, sequentially increasing. A self-explanatory title, indicating a content of a figure should be included. The uniformity in size of the figures should be maintained carefully. All figures and lettering must be of a size which remains legible after a 50% reduction of the original. In the figure caption, only the first letter of the first word in each sentence should be capitalized.
References should be in the proper format, numbered in the sequence in which they occur in the text. Cite references numerically in the text and list at the end of the manuscript. Manuscripts whose references are not strictly written in the JPT format below before final revision may be rejected even after their acceptance notification from the editor. References should be listed in the JPT template style.
