Equations should be treated as part of the text, and therefore punctuated (with a space between the end of the equation and the punctuation mark). Equations are numbered consecutively, with the number enclosed in parentheses and placed flush with the right-hand margin. References to them in the text should be of the form ‘Eq. (3), Eqs. (7) and (8), Eqs. (3)–(5)’, or ‘Equation (3)’ at the beginning of a sentence.

Equations may be written using the equation editor provided in Word or MathType. Using the style ‘equation’ in the template you can use the tab key to insert the equation (centred) and then the number flush with the right-hand margin.

Please DO NOT insert equations as figures.
