This template illustrates how to write your manuscript submissions in the text and page styles of Science Diliman. You may write over this template or follow the guideline. The abstract should contain facts and conclusions and must not be more than 250 words. It should start with the hypothesis or a statement of the problem to be solved, followed by a description of the method or technique utilized to solve the problem. The abstract should end with a summary of the results that were obtained and their implications. It is to be followed by a maximum of six key words. Keywords: Article, template, guidelines, Science Diliman

Science Diliman is a journal of pure and applied sciences. Considered for publication are original and primary papers that have not bee published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Review articles may occassionally be accepted We encourage your manuscript submissions to Science Diliman to be typeset to allow rapid online posting of your article once it has been accepted. You may write over this template or you may follow the guidelines. Contributions

name, address, abstracts and keywords are in single column while the text body is in two columns. The title is 18pt normal Times New Roman, centered with 0.5 spacing above and below paragraph. Author name is in 12pt bold Times New Roman, centered and single-spaced. Author's address is written in 10pt normal Times New Roman, centered. Associate names and addresses with superscripted numbers. Indicate with a footnote who the corresponding author is and write his or her email address at the last line of address. Abstract heading is 12 pt bold Times New Roman, centered and all caps with 0.5 spacing above and below paragraph. Abstract text is 10pt normal Times New Roman, justified, with 0.5 indents on left and right. The text body is written in two-column format, Each column is 3.5 wide and the column spacing is


The paper should be organized in, but will not be limited to, the following section ordering: Abstract, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussions, Acknowledgements and References. Pages size used is 8.5 x 11 (US Letter) and have 1 (2.54 cm) inside margins and 0.75 outside margins. Top and bottom margins are 0.5. All pages will have headers and footers except for the first page which only has a footer. Title, author's

readable. If the figure requires the whole page, insert it with the wrapping property set to no wrap or insert a single column section.

Section headings are in all caps at 12 pt bold Times New Roman. There is a 0.20 spacing below the heading.

Subsection headings have the same font style as Sections except that they are not in all caps. Number your subsections if it goes three or more levels deep.

Use the built-in equation editors of your word processing application. Center the equations and put equation number in parenthesis flushed to the right. If you are using OpenOffice type fn then press F3. For example, Equation 1 given by,

Line Art
Line art such as diagrams, flowcharts, setup drawings, must be converted into an image file. See specifications above. The image in Figure 2 was drawn using the open source drawing tool Inkscape (www.inkscape.org) and saved as png (Portable network Graphics) in 300dpi.

was created using this shortcut. All the equations will then be numbered consecutively. For inline equations such as y = at2 , whenever possible use superscripts and subscripts and insert special characters. Write the equation on a separate paragraph if it becomes too unwieldy to write inline.

All figures must be at 300dpi. Kindly convert all line art or graphs into images. We accept the following image formats: tif, png, jpg, eps. Figure captions are in 9 pt Times New Roman justified and are written below the figures as shown in Figure 1. Insert the figure with no wrap. Anchor it to paragraph. Graphs that have multiple curves should have distinct data markers such that when reproduced in black and white, the difference among the curves will be clear. Create graphs that will fit the 3.5 columns and ensure that legends and axes labels are

Since digitally captured images are already saved as image files, they may be inserted as is. Because your paper will appear online you need not convert colored images to black and white. Please make sure though that when you capture an image of a setup or a sample, the camera resolution is set at 300 dpi. Biological, medical or satellite images are best sent as tiff (Tagged Image Format) because it is a lossless image format. JPEG files are allowed for

setups or images where detail loss in not critical. Figure 3 shows an example of a setup.

using Gimp (www.gimp.org).

Table fonts are the only ones in 10pt Arial (or Helvetica). Table captions follow the style of Figure captions. If the table is too wide, you might need to straddle it across both columns. To do so, do a section break, insert the table, add another section break and resume with two columns after the table. For this reason it is best to put such wide tables either on top or at the bottom of the page.

We hope you find this guideline/template useful. You may email your submissions to jing.soriano@gmail.com or rduo.ovcrd@up.edu.ph with the subject heading: Submission to Science Diliman. We look forward to receiving your manuscript.

Write references in alphabetical order of the author's surname. Author, year published, title, volume, number and pages is the bibliographic format used. Where there are two authors, both should be named, with three or more only the firs author's name plus et al. need be given. Examples for journal articles (Soriano, et al. 2004), books (Schroedinger 1945), proceedings (Soriano et al. 2000) and technical reports (Wong et al., 2001) are shown in the Reference section below. Write webpages inline. For example if you wish to cite the Department of Foreign Affairs website, (www.science.upd.edu.ph) etc. Font size for references is 10 pts while paragraph spacing is 0.20 and justified.
