Four copies of each paper are required: the top copy must be an original and be free of written comments or marks. If you wish to make changes to the typescript, these should be added to copies 2-4. Three sets of illustrations are required. Only one set need be suitable for reproduction, the other sets can be good quality photocopies. We welcome IBM-compatible discs. Please note that the requirements in this paragraph do not entail direct reproduction from authors' camera-ready copy, but relate only to the data capture stage of type-setting by means of optical character recognition.
Typescripts must be double-spaced on one side of the paper only, including the title page, text (organized using appropriate headings introduction, methods, results, discussion etc), acknowledgements, references, Tables (each table to appear on a new page), and Figure captions. Fach manuscript component must begin on a new page.
On the title page include: title; subtitle '(if any); initials and surname of each author; name of authors' departments and institutions, city and country.
On a separate page, repeat the title and authors' names and give the full name, postal address, telephone number and fax number of the author who will be responsible for all correspondence regarding the manuscript, proofs and offprints. . . . This is essential.

Submission implies that all material is free from copyright restriction. If figures have been pre-viously published elsewhere, authors are requested to obtain permission for reproduction and to attach these letters of permission to the typescript.

Please explain any abbreviations unless immediately obvious.

References should be typed doubled spaced, consecutively, beginning on a new page. Use the Vancouver' style of references. In the text use superior numbers (or numbers in parentheses if superiors are not available). List the references at the end of the typescript, numerically, in the order in which they are referred to in the text. Examples of reference style are as follows.

Illustrations should be carefully chosen and make a valid point in the construction of the article, otherwise they may be omitted. Half-tone figures should be submitted as photographs (glossy prints). Colour reproduction will not be possible unless the cost is met by the contributor; please contact the publishers for further details. Where possible, in the interests of speedy publication illustrations must be sup-plied in the size in which they will he reproduced. This will correspond to a single column width (8lmm) or occasionally double column (67mm). Figures larger than this will be reduced; please take account of this when considering the size of lettering, the thickness of ntles and lines and the density of tints and hatching. Legends should be typed consecutively and double spaced on a separate sheet of paper. Tables should he typed double-spaced on separate sheets, with number and title.
