Instructions for authors.

The papers will be published in a special issue of IJNS. Papers should not exceed 6 pages. (but note that the two column format is much denser than the earlier formats suggested).

The publishers support Latex2e: if you do not use this, currently, information about it (it's free) is available. It runs happily on a SUN.

We have all the files you should require here.

Send the files to:

FAX (44) 1786 464551

Mrs. Fiona MacNicol

Stirling FK9 4LA,

If you do not use Latex2e, I suggest the following . Either start using it (!) or produce something which looks as near identical to the postscript version as possible. If you can't read postscript, I can send you a copy (email me and ask). Basic information is:

2-column text, with title, authors affiliations and abstract across whole page.

Computer Modern Font (CMF). But the closest you will probably find is Times Roman.

Text Sizes:
Title: 14 point bold, capitalised, centred.
Authors names and affiliations: 10 point small capitals. Centred.
Abstract: 8 point, single column, 150mm width.
Headings: numbered, 1, 2. 10 point bold
Subheadings: 2.1, 2.2
Sub-sub headings: un-numbered
Main text 10 point
Figures numbered sequentially. Captions for figures below figures, in 8 point
Footnotes: separated from text by a line of half the column width, 8 point.

Document sizes:
So far as I can make out:

Text is in columns of 221mm  (8.7 inch) length, with the whole text area (both columns together) of 170mm (6.7 inch), separated by 8mm (0.3125 inch). On A4 paper, leave a top margin of 32mm, a bottom margin of 39mm, and a left and right margin of 20mm.

Place the title 56mm from the top of the page. Leave 9mm between title and authors names.
