  • Tables and figures are encouraged, but color drawings will be converted to grayscale.

Please indicate where figures and tables should be placed in your chapter text.
    • Copyrighted material: Full credit must be given to the originators of any borrowed tables or figures in the form of a full, reference-style credit line.
