Submit your manuscript

First steps

Before the submission of your manuscript to the Editorial Support for peer review, you are kindly requested to do the following:

File submission for review process

After the manuscript registration, you are kindly asked to upload those files which are necessary for the peer-review process. The following files are required:

  • the abstract (title, authors, affiliations, abstract text, sample) as a *.pdf file;
  • the complete manuscript (abstract, text, tables, figures) as a *.pdf file.

Other possible review files include the following:

  • Any supplementary material (if available) must be submitted as a *.zip archive or single *.pdf file. The overall file size of a supplement is limited to 50 MB. Authors of larger supplements are kindly asked to submit their files to a reliable data repository and to insert a link in the manuscript. Ideally, this linkage is realized through DOIs (digital object identifiers).
  • The author's response in case of "minor" or "major" revisions must be submitted as one separate *.pdf file (indicating page and line numbers) structured in a clear and easy-to-follow sequence: (1) comments from referees/public, (2) author's response, and (3) author's changes in manuscript. Regarding author's changes, a marked-up manuscript version (track changes in Word, latexdiff in LaTeX) converted into a *.pdf and including the author's response must be provided.

File submission for production process

After the acceptance of a manuscript, you will be informed by email and are kindly asked to complete the file upload for the publication production process. Then, please submit the following files:

  • the actual text followed by the table(s) and figure caption(s) prepared in the way as outlined in the manuscript preparation as one file in LaTeX (as a *.tex file) or MS Word format (as a *.doc file);
  • all figures, numbered (e.g. f01, f02, ..., f11, f01a, f01b) and prepared in the way as outlined in the manuscript preparation, as one *.zip archive (or other compressed formats). Possible figure formats are *.pdf, *.ps, *.eps, *.jpg, *.png, *.tif, and *.gif.

Remark on file sizes

Authors are kindly asked to find the best balance between quality of figures (and submitted material) and overall file size. Individual figures should not exceed 5 MB, and the overall size of all submitted files excluding supplements should not exceed 30 MB.
