Clear, simple captions. Tables and special graphics (drawings, maps, etc.) to fit A4 page (or smaller), white background. If copied from another source, give source in parentheses at the end of the caption. Example: Figure 4. Sketch of Uncertainty and Risk Analysis Model for a tunnel project (Panthi 2006) Figure 8. Severe squeezing at Modi pressure tunnel (left) and Kali Gandaki headrace tunnel (right) (photo courtesy of Himal Hydro 2001 and Impregilo SpA 1989) Table 2.

Cite sources referred to in the text, listing author(s) alphabetically by last name with date (no comma) or date: page number(s) (no space after colon), each separated by a semi-colon, and all within parentheses. Examples: (ADB 2004; Cernea and McDowell 2000:45-47; Panthi and Nilsen 2005:12-13), or (see Swartz 1968; Lemarchand and Legg 1972; Scott 1976; Schmidt et al 1977; Popkin 1979), or (adapted from Stern, Ostrom et al 2002). All sources cited in the text must appear in References at the end. Accuracy of all references are the author’s responsibility. Be sure all references are complete.
