Numbering all pages (center, top of the page).
Lines should be numbered continuously from the first to last page.
Heading 1: Bold; for example, Materials and Methods
Heading 2: Bold Italic; for example, Method of Experiment
Spelling: The JAAB uses American or British spelling and yet the uniformity within each paper is required. Latin words or phrases are in italics, e.g. genus and species, except for very common expressions such as “i.e.,” “e.g.,” “et al.,” “in vitro,” “ex vitro” and “etc.”
