Instructors for Authors

Submission of Papers
Manuscripts should be sent in one copy to the editor in chief. Submission of a paper will be taken to imply that it represents final work for a class, a research group or free study who might not necessarily be original but that has not been previously published and is not being considered in another class for a grade. If accepted for publication it could be published elsewhere in the same form; in such a case, please notitify the Editor. The master copy and original drawings will be returned to the authors in case their paper is not accepted for publication.

Submitted papers will be anonymously refereed by other students, preferably in the same research group and, if necessary, authors may be invited to revise their manuscript. If a submitted paper relies heavily on published or published material, it would be helpful to have a copy of that material for the use of the referee. See Notice to referees.

Manuscript Preparation
All manuscripts should be written in good English. The paper copies of the text should be prepared with single line spacing in the Latex Style (article; it is a good idea to begin with
 this  Latex file with the Horsetooth style) or in Ms-Word. Submission could be done electronically.
Structure. Please adhere to the following order of presentation: Article title, Author(s), Affiliation(s), Course Number and instructor's name, Abstract, PACS codes and keywords, Main text, Acknowledgements, Appendices, References, Figure captions, Tables.
Corresponding author. The name, complete postal address, telephone and fax numbers and the e-mail address of the corresponding author should be given on the first page of the manuscript.
PACS codes/keywords. Please supply up to four relevant PACS-1995 classification codes and approximately four keywords of your own choice for indexing purposes.
References. References to other work should be consecutively numbered in the text using square brackets and listed by number in the Reference list. Please refer to the more detailed instructions for examples.

Illustrations should also be submitted on paper and in a postscript file. The line drawings in the master set should be original laser printer or plotter output or drawn in black india ink, with careful lettering, large enough (3-5 mm) to remain legible after reduction for printing. The photographs should be originals, with somewhat more contrast than is required in the printed version. They should be unmounted unless part of a composite figure. Any scale markers should be inserted on the photograph, not drawn below it.
Colour plates. Colour figures are heavily encouraged. For each issue, the nicest colour plate will be chosen for the front cover.
Animation. Animations are also welcome they should be sent either as jpeg, animated gif or quick time movies.

After acceptance 
Notification. You will be notified by the Editor of the journal of the acceptance of your article and invited to supply an electronic version of the accepted text, if this is not already available.
Copyright transfer. You will not be asked to transfer the copyright of the article to the Publisher. The article is not considered to be an actual publication in the sense understood by other journals and will therefore be refereed to as REPORT. The articles can be submitted to other journals with the knowledge of the Editor.

Electronic manuscripts
The Publisher welcomes the receipt of an electronic version of your accepted manuscript (encoded in LaTeX). If you have not already supplied the final, revised version of your article to the Journal Editor, you are requested herewith to send a file with the text of the accepted manuscript directly to the Publisher by e-mail to the address given below. Please note that no deviations from the version accepted by the Editor of the journal are permissible without the prior and explicit approval by the Editor. Such changes should be clearly indicated on an accompanying printout of the file. The Article LaTeX package should be used.

Author benefits
No page charges. Publishing in Dynamics at the Horsetooth is free.
