Each table should be numbered and cited in sequence using
Arabic numerals (i.e. Table 1, 2, 3 etc.). Tables should
also have a title (above the table) that summarizes the
whole table; it should be no longer than 15 words.
Detailed legends may then follow, but they should be
concise. Tables should always be cited in text in
consecutive numerical order.
Smaller tables considered to be integral to the manuscript
can be pasted into the end of the document text file, in
A4 portrait or landscape format. These will be typeset and
displayed in the final published form of the article. Such
tables should be formatted using the 'Table object' in a
word processing program to ensure that columns of data are
kept aligned when the file is sent electronically for
review; this will not always be the case if columns are
generated by simply using tabs to separate text. Columns
and rows of data should be made visibly distinct by
ensuring that the borders of each cell display as black
lines. Commas should not be used to indicate numerical
values. Color and shading may not be used; parts of the
table can be highlighted using symbols or bold text, the
meaning of which should be explained in a table legend.
Tables should not be embedded as figures or spreadsheet
