Guide for the Preparation of Scientific Papers for Publication. Second Edition.
Updating a 1968 publication, this document presents rules and explanatory comments for use by authors and editors involved in the preparation of a scientific manuscript for professional typesetting prior to publication. It is noted that the guidelines should also be useful for authors producing camera-ready typescript with word processing techniques. Two categories of papers (original scientific and review papers) are identified, and the abstracting and indexing of primary publications is mentioned. It is noted that manuscripts should not be submitted for duplicate publication or duplicate consideration for publication. The component parts of a manuscript are identified as the title, abstract, keywords, main text, summary, and reference list; and brief guidelines on the production of these sections are given. Further guidelines cover style of presentation, citations and bibliographical references, bibliographical identification of serials, preparation of the author's abstract, use and explanation of new terminology and nomenclature, preparation of tables and illustrations, and the physical form of manuscripts for submission. Additional recommendations to editors and a list of international standards concerned with scientific publications are also provided. (ESR)
