Guidelines for Authors in Camera-Ready Proceedings
Preparing your work for publication
You should have been informed by the editor(s) of the arrangements for the publication of the Proceedings, including the production procedures and schedules. Your paper should be sent directly to the editor of the book, not to the RSC. Also available are Guidelines for Editors of Camera-Ready Proceedings.
1. Instructions for Authors Preparing Camera-Ready Typescripts
These instructions are designed to assist contributors in preparing camera-ready typescripts in a form that will facilitate the production process. Please read them very carefully and follow the specifications they contain.
Please use the Template Document which is available to help you to produce your contribution. There are some simple Template Instructions for use of the template document, together with a specimen chapter and some further examples that illustrate the points raised within these instructions. Authors should also read the Author Instructions for Camera-Ready Copy. This gives more detailed information if you are not using the template.
The template file is provided as a read-only document: this means that if a change is made to the original template file, the only way that the new version can be saved is by being given a different file name This format ensures that authors can produce their typescripts whilst retaining the original template file for further use, if so required.
Every chapter must be accompanied by an Abstract (50-250 words) setting out briefly and clearly the main objects and results of the work; it should give the reader a clear idea of what has been achieved. The summary should be essentially independent of the main text; however, names, partial names or linear formulae of compounds may be accompanied by the numbers referring to the corresponding displayed formulae in the body of the text. The abstracts should be provided in a separate file and not part of the body of the chapter. We will be using the abstracts in our eBook collection to promote the content.
3. Copyright Declaration Form (Licence to Publish)
You will be asked to sign a copyright declaration form giving permission to the RSC to reproduce the paper in the Proceedings and confirming that all material used is free of copyright restrictions.
If you have any problems or queries in preparing your contribution either contact the editor(s) of the Proceedings or alternatively contact Books Editorial.
