Manuscript Text

The text is written as follows.
(1) The form is not particularly limited, but the purpose, method, and conclusion are clarified. For example, in a text, the introduction, method, result and consideration, conclusion, and so on. In the contents of the text, redundant explanations of common-sense matters and descriptions of textbook contents are avoided.
(2) The part of chapters, clauses, and sections shall be point systems. Chapters can be subtitled. The chapter number shall be "1., 2., …", the clause number shall be "1.1., 1.2., …" and the section number shall be "1.1.1., 1.1.2., …". If a further subdivision is required, (1) ……, (2) ……, but avoid further subdivision.
(3) The beginning of a new line is separated by three characters.
(4) If footnotes are required, they shall be indicated on the right shoulder of the paragraph of the text as footnote 1), summarized at the bottom of the same page, and distinguished from the text.
(5) Each formula is numbered consecutively in parentheses as follows.
   A + B = C    (1)
(6) Figures and tables shall always be numbered and cited in the text. For example, Figure 1 shows "Figure 1", and Table 1 shows "Table 1".
(7) The title and description of the figure are written at the bottom of the figure. The table title should be written at the top of the table and the description at the bottom of the table.
(8) Numbers indicating quantities and ordinal numbers shall be Arabic numerals.
(9) In principle, SI units should be used for units. If non-SI units are used, indicate the conversion method.


As a general rule, personal communications, and unpublished materials are not permitted as "references".
(1) When citing references in the text, follow the format below.
If there is only one author (Author's last name, year of publication), if there are two authors (Last name of author A and last name of author B, year of publication), and if there are three or more authors (First author et al., year of publication).
(2) The format of the list of references should be as follows.
References are listed alphabetically by author name at the end of the text. When there are two or more articles by the same author, they are arranged in order of year of publication, and when there are two or more articles in the same year of publication, they are arranged after the year of publication with a, b, c, etc.
In principle, references should be written in English. The author's name should be the surname first, followed by the initials of the first name. For co-authors of three more persons, "et al." shall be used. In the case of a magazine, the author's name, article title, the name of the magazine, the year, the number of volumes (number), and the starting and ending pages are entered in this order. In the case of a book, the author's name, the book title, and the name of the publisher should be stated and the pages cited should be written like "3-5". In the case of electronic documents, the website authors' name, publication year, title, URL, access date, and so on. See the following examples for how to write references.
