No, there is no general standard. When looking for the most
standardlike presentation I would look within your own
sub-sub-discipline, because these things tend to change quite a bit
between disciplines, and editors, reviewers, and advisors tend to like
their own standard. 

Anyhow if your model so new to your discipline that not even a
standardlike presentation has developed, than so much the better! Often
you are forced into a standard presentation you know is not quite
kosher, but you are stuck with it because some old guys want it. Now
you can do it right, and set the standard (and before you know it you
are one of those old persons forcing other people to do it your way).
