Reference style: References should be quoted in the text as name and year within brackets and listed at the end of the paper alphabetically. Where reference is made to more than one work by the same author published in the same year, identify each citation in the text as follows: (Dissanayake, 1991a), (Dissanayake, 1991b). Where three or more authors are listed in the reference list, please cite in the text as (Dissanayake et al., 1998). All references must be complete and accurate. Where possible the DOI for the reference should be included at the end of the reference. Online citations should include date of access. If necessary, cite unpublished or personal work in the text but do not include it in the reference list. References should be listed in the following style:
Illustrations and Tables-Submit each figure as a separate file in -.jpeg, -.tiff or -.eps format during the final submission. Save the figure
using appropriate figure number. Compound figures e.g. 1a, b, c should be uploaded as one figure. Lettering must be of a
reasonable size that would still be clearly legible upon reduction, and consistent within each figure and set of figures.
Where a key to symbols is required, please include this in the artwork itself, not in the figure legend. All illustrations
must be supplied at the correct resolution. For instance Black and white and colour photos - 300 dpi, Graphs, drawings, etc - 600 dpi
minimum; Combinations of photos and drawings (black and white and colour) - 500 dpi.Figures should be clear and dark enough to be reproduced
photographically. Lettering should be minimum of 2 mm (8 to 12 pt) height after reducing, so should be large enough in originals to stand
reductions. It is best to use Helvetica or Arial (sans serif fonts). Captions should NOT be written
on the figures, and all empty space should, as far as possible be eliminated. Photographs should
be of high quality (Black and White or Colour), photos trimmed to show only the essential features. Colour figures are always discouraged.
It is the responsibility of the author to clarify whether or not the colour figures are required
in print when submitting the manuscript for review.
Tables should be part of the main document and placed after the references. All tables are to be numbered using Arabic numerals cited in the text as …table 1.. (in the text) or (Table 1) and are accompanied a table caption (title) explaining the components of the table. Footnotes in tables are discouraged. They should be designed to go across single or double column width of the Journal. Units should be given once at head of table, and tables should be enclosed within rules.
Equations-Equations should ne centered and numbered consecutively with the number set flush right and
enclosed in parenthesis. It should be referred to as Eq. (N) in the text where N is the equation
number in Arabic numerals. In multiple line equations, the number should be given on the last line.
Manuscript Submission The authors are requested to submit the final text, tables and figures electronically to the Editor-in Chief for speedy processing of the paper for publication. The text should be prepared on PC compatible computers preferably with a recent Windows version of Microsoft Word. The authors should inquire from the Editors if they wish to use other word processing programmes and/or a different type of computer giving the name and version of the programme and type of computer. Main text, list of references, table and figure legends should be stored in separate text files, clearly indicating the file names.
