  iv) Units: The use of SI units is recommended.
  Examples: k [W/(m K)] or k [Wm-1K-1], k = 0.58 W/(m K) or k = 0.58 Wm-1K-1
  v) Chemical Nomenclature: Use IUPAC or Chemical Abstract conventions.
4) Nomenclature: List symbols in alphabetical order with their definition and SI units. Greek letters, subscripts and superscripts should follow Roman symbols.

iii) translate the article's title into English and include the phrase (in Japanese) just after the title.
