Titles of subsections are to be written in 10-point bold type font with single-spacing as well, but they should be aligned with the left edge of the column. All titles are to be separated from the text by 1 (10-point) empty line above, and 1 (6-point) empty line below the title.
Contents of chapters and subsections must be aligned with both edges of each column without any additional spacing between lines.
Drawings, diagrams and photographs are to be considered as the same and referred to using abbreviations, for instance ‘Fig.’ and marked as Fig. along with the successive number. The drawings may be prepared by using of any technique (as black lines on a white background) and photographs must be black-and-white only.
