9. Unit

It is desirable that units of measurements and abbreviation should follow The International System of Units(SI) except where the other unit system is more suitable with the parenthesis.

For more than 3 authors, the first author only should be displayed such as “Yen et al.”. The following example shows the usage of spacing and punctuation.



This is the result of Hong Gil Dong(1986) and it is a succession from several studies(Yamada, 1977; Fisher, 1983a; Fisher, 1983b). Recently, there have been many more studies(Terzaghi & Peck, 1923; Hong, 2000; Yen et al., 2002), …


11. References


11.1 References list
