Suggestions to Organizers

  1. Make sure that each chapter is complete (including abstract, acknowledgments, accurate References Cited list, and all tables and figures) before final submission to the Books Science Editor.
  2. Make sure that all parts (abstracts, text, references, and figure captions) of all manuscripts are double-spaced. Return any that are not double-spaced to the corresponding authors to reformat before submitting them to the GSA Books Science Editor.
  3. Make sure that all manuscripts are clean, i.e., if the volume editor marks it up, have the author enter the corrections and submit a new copy that will be ready for GSA's copy editor.
  4. Make sure that all non-English words and names in the text and References Cited have the appropriate accents, diacritical marks, and special characters before final submission to the Books Science Editor.
  5. Make sure the senior author submits electronic files that are final. Please follow the guidelines for Figures and Tables.
  6. Provide a list of up-to-date e-mail addresses and phone numbers for all corresponding authors. During the publication process, notify the GSA books department staff of contact information changes for authors.
