A new look for ATR inside pages

The ATR’s inside pages sport a new look starting this issue. From the original black, article, section and subsection titles are now in pastel blue. Aside from lending the page greater appeal, the change was done to enable the reader to immediately locate important details. The abstract is underlaid with pastel blue to highlight it from the rest of the text. Pastel blue was chosen because it is both inviting and soothing. Aside from color change, the ATR logo is now placed at the upper right corner of the first page of every article and the dates the article was received and accepted are indicated at the right side across the abstract.
