  1. This works better, as I had some problems with some reviewers:
    \newcommand{\etal}{\textit{et al}. }
    \newcommand{\ie}{\textit{i}.\textit{e}., }
    \newcommand{\eg}{\textit{e}.\textit{g}. }

  2. Thanks Mahdi. Just to confirm, your change is to add spaces after the periods at the end of these three new commands? And add a comma to the end of ie., ?
