1. Your personal information, contacts, and degree data
We require a limited amount of personal information to process your submission, provide records to your institution and to communicate with you if necessary. We use your personal information solely for publishing and dissemination purposes and do not sell or supply your personal information to any third party.
We request your Country of Citizenship because libraries and researchers are often interested in searching for all treatises published by authors of a given nation or region.
The name you provide on the Submission Form should be identical to the name on your title page.
We ask for your permanent or stable contact information to increase the chances of reaching you if there is an issue with your submission and to pay you royalties when/if you are eligible. If we are not able to reach you during the publishing process, the release of your treatise and production of any print copies you order may be substantially delayed.
Please use full and official names when completing the information about your university, school or college and department or program. Please also use the correct abbreviation for the degree you earned.
Finally, please provide the full name of your advisor/committee chair; e.g. James H. Smith, not Jim Smith.
2. Information about your treatise
We require this information to create the bibliographic data that establishes your treatise in the primary literature. It is important that this information is accurate and corresponds precisely with the information in your manuscript. Discrepancies between the data you provide in this form and your manuscript can delay publication of your work and/or make it difficult for other researchers to discover your work.
Make sure that the title you provide on the submission form is the same as the title on your manuscripts title page. Whenever possible, use full proper names of people, organisms, places, etc. For example: "Samuel Clemens" not "S. Clemens"; Hyla arenicolor, not H. arenicolor. Try to spell out abbreviations for specialized vocabulary, e.g., "Triassic" rather than "Tr." Use word substitutes for formulas, symbols, superscripts, subscripts, Greek characters, etc. For example, use "potassium", not "K"; "first", not "1st"; "delta", not "∆". Be sure to include all appropriate accents and diacritical marks.
The first (primary) subject category that you enter is the one under which your treatise will occur in our citation and abstract indices. Using ANNEX 6, choose the category that most closely corresponds with the subject of your research. If you add one or two more subject categories, these will be associated with your work and may increase its exposure to search engines.
Adding good keywords is another way to increase the chances that your work will be discovered. For example, geographic locations or specialized terms that do not occur in your title or abstract can increase exposure of your work.
