TRONDHEIM 2018 AUTHORS special information

MANUSCRIPT LENGTH & AUTHOR CHARGES

Important: If you need to submit a page-charge waiver, please restrict your entire manuscript word count to 4500 words and figure count to 4 figures. The journal is self-funding and regrettably cannot afford to publish long articles for free. However, excess tables, figures, and appendices can be published as online-only supplemental materials at no charge.

Papers published as part of a conference proceedings will receive free page charges for the first 8 printed pages only. Additional pages will be charged the usual fee of US $50 per page. Color figures are US $320 plus applicable VAT. We cannot publish color figures for free in the print version, but they are always free in the online version.  

FORMATTING YOUR MANUSCRIPT

We prefer submissions in Word or rich text format (RTF). LaTeX files can be accepted but we will have to convert them in-house to RTF, which can cause formatting changes.

Please do not number your section headings. Use ALL CAPS + BOLD for main headings (level-1), Initial Caps + Bold for subheadings (level-2), and Initial Caps + Italics + Bold  for level-3 headings.

REFERENCES STYLE

Please follow the CSE Manual for Authors, Editors, and Publishers (8th ed.) when formatting references and in-text citations. Please note, we prefer full journal titles rather than abbreviations. When listing several citations at once, put them in chronological order: (Mazan and Hoffman 2001; Smart et al. 2003; Rapley 2010). Do not place a comma before the year in the citation: (Rapley 2010).

For articles with 2 authors, names are separated by a comma in the end reference but by “and” in the in-text reference.
