2.1 Instructions for Editors
The ASPCS Instructions for Authors and Editors
Using LaTeX is the essential document to have at
hand when compiling your volume. It includes all the instructions editors
need when compiling their volumes, including specific LaTeX instructions and
general suggestions. Editors should also be familiar with the author
instructions contained therein.
The Instructions for Authors and Editors can also be downloaded as
asptemplates2010.zip, which is a
collection of LaTeX files and templates that can be used as a model for
how a complete volume is assembled and compiled. The Instructions contain
all the same sections as a regular volume, and compiles exactly the same
way a regular volume is compiled.
2.2 Helps for
Editors When Compiling
2.2.1 Outline of a Manuscript
An outline of a complete volume is provided in the Instructions for
Authors and Editors.
Looking through a recent ASPCS volume or two would
also be an excellent reference.
You can uncomment the marginguides command in your main
LaTeX file to
produce a version of the manuscript with margin guides shown.
All text, figures, footnotes, and running heads should fall within the
margin limits: 8 5/8 inches (21.9 cm) by 5 1/4 inches (13.3 cm).
Final Checklist Before Submitting Manuscript
Please review and double check
the items on the Editor's checklist, which can be found in the Instructions
for Authors and Editors, before submitting your volume.
