The abstract should be normally one page long and in no case should exceed two pages. Use A4 page set-up and make all margins (top, bottom, left, right) 20 mm wide. Use 10 pt Times New Roman font (except for the title which should be in 12 pt bold). Centre the title, the authors’ names, the addresses and keywords and contact email address. Please compose a title that clearly and succinctly describes the content of your work in order to maximise its impact.

             Start each paragraph, except the first, with an indent. Justify the body of the text both left and right. Do not use page numbers. Uniformity of abstract style makes the work much easier to digest!

             Use clear English to write your abstract, with an emphasis on describing what is new and why it should attract the attention of the audience.

             Figures can be in colour or in black and white. Ensure that Figures and Tables have a caption and that they are numbered consecutively.

References should be made in the style (Dickenson, 2005), Marr and Morrissey (2010) or as Curtis et al (1996).  Leave a blank line above the list of references, and also above the acknowledgements.

Section headings can be used, but they do take up valuable space: the same can be said of equations.
