Tips for preparing abstracts

Since the content of the abstract must be entered in the input box, a better way to prepare the abstract is to write it in an editor and copy-and-paste it. The length must be less than 4000 characters including spaces. Double-byte characters are not accepted.

1. Paragraph

  • A paragraph is created for each line break. Please do not put a line break in every sentence.
  • The beginning of a paragraph is not indented. For readability, it is recommended to insert one blank line between paragraphs.

2. Special characters/symbols

  • For special characters such as Greek letters and mathematical symbols, please use HTML character entities.  (Examples: &mu; for µ, &times; for x, etc.)
  • Try to avoid using anything that cannot be expressed by simple HTML entities. However, if the abstract would not be completed without such representation, please upload them as a figure (see "How to prepare a figure file").

3. Section titles

  • Section titles, such as Introduction, Experimental, References, etc., are acceptable.
  • For easy reading, the section titles are bolded (Introduction) or are capitalized (INTRODUCTION).

4. References

  • Please include a reference list, if any, at the end of the abstract.
  • Notation (Author name(s), Journal title, vol., page (year).)
[1] G. Binnig et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 49, 57 (1982).
[2] C. D. Bain and G. M. Whitesides, Science 240, 62 (1988).
  • The reference should be cited in the text by numbers in brackets: [1], [1, 2], or [1-3].
How to prepare a figure file

One figure file is allowed to be uploaded.

  • The file size is less than 3.0 MB.
  • Acceptable file formats are jpeg, jpg, png, and gif.
  • Do not use Japanese in the figure.
  • If you want to show more than one figures, you can arrange several figures in a single file. In such a case, please label them as (a), (b), etc. to distinguish them.
  • Mathematical equations or chemical reaction formulas can also be uploaded as a figure.
  • Figure captions must be attached to the bottom of the figure.

"Summary" is a short version of the abstract.

  • The length must be less than 1000 characters (including spaces).
  • The summary should consist of one paragraph. Thus, do not include line breaks.
  • For special characters such as Greek letters and mathematical symbols, please use HTML character entities.
  • Do not refer to figures.
  • Do not refer to references by their numbers ([1], [1, 2], etc.).
