General style principles

Please edit/amend.

  1. The last paragraph of the background and the first paragraph of the discussion tend to be summaries of the major outcomes of the work.
  2. Figure legends should not use "we" or "I".
  3. Figure legends should stand alone. i.e., the reader should not have to read the paper text to understand the figure.
