Authors preparing papers for submission should note the following points:
Papers must be prepared according to the requirements of PRST-AB,
which may be found at the URL http://prst-ab.aps.org/guidelin.html
Papers may only be submitted in electronic form, not hardcopy.
Acceptable file formats are MS Word for Windows or MAC, PDF, and
LaTeX. To simplify uniform preparation of files, authors
are required to choose one of the above formats and use the
macros supplied by PRST-AB at the above URL. Furthermore,
acceptance for publication in the special conference edition of
PRST-AB puts requirements on content. Papers must contain
important new results in science and/or technology. Confirmation
of previously published results of unusual importance can be
considered as new, as can significant null results. In
general, authors should keep review material to a minimum. Even
so, some review and reprise of past work is appropriate if the
paper can be made more understandable and self-contained thereby.
Papers cannot be duplicates of work submitted for publication to
another journal. Material previously published, or
submitted for publication, in a Letters journal or in conference
proceedings can be the basis of an article in PRST-AB provided
the submitted manuscript presents more information, enabling the
reader to obtain an improved understanding of the subject.
The submission deadline for the proceedings on the conference
website and CD-ROM is June 29, 2001, at 1200 EST.
Papers shall be submitted via FTP as instructed at http://atfweb.kek.jp/icfa/2001/
OR as e-mail attachments to email@example.com.
Acceptable file formats for the ICFA conference proceedings are
MS Word for Windows or MAC, PDF, and LaTeX. Papers will be
published without further editing.
Authors whose papers are screened by the program committee and
suggested for PRST-AB publication must take care of the
submission process themselves. The organizing committee
will not forward any papers to PRST-AB. The submission of
papers to PRST-AB, as well as the follow up to the peer review is
explained at the URL http://publish.aps.org/esubs/ There is no firm
deadline for PRST-AB as of yet (June 11, 2001). You will have an
opportunity to polish your paper for another 2 months before
submission to PRST-AB. Each paper will be independently peer
reviewed by the PRST-AB journal and published electronically.
Authors are also responsible for granting APS the copyright for
papers published in PRST-AB. The copyright agreement can be
found at the URL ftp://aps.org/pub/jrnls/copy_trnsfr.asc
