Preparation for Submission: Editorial Guidelines

Color Figures

Electronic figures submitted in color will be published online in color at no extra charge to authors. Note, however, that grayscale images printed from color figures do not generally have monotonic gray scales.

Specify (Color) or (Color online) in captions, as appropriate, for color figures. For color online only, take care to ensure that captions and text references to the figures are appropriate for both the online color and print grayscale versions, and that the figure will be sufficiently clear in both versions. (The same figure file is used for both the print and the online versions.)


Check the accuracy of your references. Include the complete source information for any references cited in the abstract. (Do not cite reference numbers in the abstract. Abstracts are reprinted in various abstract journals and databases where the numerical citation is not useful.)

Number references in text consecutively, starting with [1].


If your native language is not English, please consider enlisting the help of an English-speaking colleague in preparing the text.

Use a spell checker. (Referees are not favorably impressed by careless mistakes.)


Submit or resubmit manuscripts in "preprint, double-spaced" format, rather than in two-column format. This is the format that is currently sent to referees and that is needed by production. Submit your paper to


With your submission, include a list of possible referees who are experts on the subject matter and not your close colleagues. Please consider including younger individuals who, while possibly less well known, are sufficiently knowledgeable to be effective referees.

After Submission

In any resubmission letter, provide (1) a concise summary of your rebuttal to the major points of criticism raised by the referees, (2) a point by point, polite, professional response to the referee reports, and (3) a list of changes.

If your paper is accepted, please check the proofs carefully, even if you have submitted your paper as an electronic file. (The conversion, copy-editing, and formatting processes will inevitably introduce changes and some errors might result.)
