The space between the area of the figures and the text before and after the figure is two blanks at 10 points (whenever possible).
6. The numbering of main sections is in Roman numerals, in font "bold" and to 11 points. The "Acknowledgments" and "References" sections are not numbered.

9. Historically, the LAJPE reference format was initially inspired by that of the journal Am. J. Physc. (AJP). Although its format is not strictly that of the magazine, it has certain similar characteristics.
10. The magazine does not accept articles with Padlocks since they can not be edited and prevents the material from being published.
