Text citation: Citations can be direct (textual transcription of the consulted work) or indirect (information based on the work consulted). In direct citations , the transcribed text must be distinguished (in italics or with quotation marks), preceded by the citation, which must be in parentheses containing the author's name in capital letters separated by a comma from the publication date. Ex.: (PEREIRA, 2004). In direct citations , the text may precede or follow the citation, which should include the author's name only with a capital initial followed by the publication date in parentheses. Ex.: Pereira (2004).

Whenever page specification is necessary, it must follow the date separated by a comma and preceded by p. Ex.: Mumford (1949, p.513).

Citations of various works by the same author and published in the same year must be discriminated by capital letters following the date and without a space. Ex.: (PESIDE, 1927a) (PESIDE, 1927b).

Whenever the work has two or three authors, all of them must be indicated and separated by "and", and in the case of more than three, the first author is indicated and followed by et al. Ex.: (Oliveira and Leonardo, 1943) and (HENDERSON et al., 2004).

Notes: Notes must be reduced to a minimum number and placed in a footnote. Remission to the footnote must be accomplished by means of special superscript characters.

Tables: Tables must be consecutively numbered by Arabic numbers and headed by a title. The title must be preceded by the word TABLE.

Figures: Figures must be consecutively numbered by Arabic numbers and include a legend as a title. The legend must be preceded by the word FIGURE. Figures and their legends must be clearly readable.

Equations: Equation numbering, whenever necessary, must be sequential and in Arabic numbers aligned on the right. Its components must in italics, except for numbers and functions. Ex.:

.

Measurement units and symbols: These elements must be restricted to those conventionally used or sanctioned by usage. Unusual units must be clearly defined in the text.
