Final Check & Submission

Final Check

Before submission, all parts of the book should be checked. 

  • Check the table of contents to ensure that part, chapter and heading numbering are in the correct sequence, and update the chapter titles and subheadings if necessary.
  • Save each chapter or contribution, including the accompanying references, figure legends, and tables in a separate file in the original file format and give each file the first chapter author’s last name and the chapter number (e.g. Myers-Chap1). 
  • Save the original figure files separately and name them with the first chapter author’s last name, the chapter, and figure number (e.g. Myers-Fig1.1).
  • Ensure the text and figures of your manuscript are complete and final, and that the manuscript does not exceed the agreed-upon length.
  • Please ensure all third-party permissions have been obtained.
  • For contributed volumes, ensure that all authors have signed their Contributor Agreements.
