Manuscript Preparation

Each manuscript is to be submitted in a single PDF file. The PDF file should be created with the following specifications:

  • Each manuscript is limited to a length of three pages.
  • The manuscript layout should adhere to AIP 8.5 x 11 inch, single-column format.
  • All fonts should be embedded in the PDF file. Please ensure that “Embed all fonts” is selected in the PDF settings of the program used to create the PDF file (for example, Adobe Acrobat). See the step-by-step instructions to configure PDF settings. If fonts are not embedded, some characters may not be rendered correctly in other computers.
  • All figures should be created with at least 300 dpi and pasted into the manuscript. Color graphics are available on CD-ROM and in the on-line version.

For detailed author instructions, please consult the AIP 8.5 x 11 inch, single column instruction booklet and a sample paper. Also available are MS Word Templates and Users Guide and LaTeX Classes and Guides to help create the manuscript. Please note that the manuscript should be submitted in PDF format, not in MS Word or LaTeX format.

Forms to be Submitted with Manuscript

  • Transfer of Copyright Agreement

Please download the Transfer of Copyright Agreement form and have it signed by at least one author of each paper. Scan the signed form and submit it as a PDF file along with the manuscript. Your paper cannot be published without an accompanying signed Transfer of Copyright Agreement form.

  • Permissions to Reprint Published Material

Please request as early as possible and submit along with the manuscript the necessary permissions documentation for any figures or tables borrowed from other sources. Any figures or tables taken in their entirety from another source need permission from the previous publisher or author. If the source is an AIP or member society journal, or an AIP Conference Proceedings Volume, permissions do not need to be obtained. Similarly, if the source is considered public domain, or was authored by one of the authors of the current paper, permission does not need to be obtained. Please refer to the “Permissions” section of the AIP 8.5 x 11 inch, single column instruction booklet for details on determining if permission should be requested.

The booklet also provide links to some publishers that offer submission of permission requests online or via email, which may be the fastest and most convenient way of receiving a reply. You may also use the Permission Request Form to request permission to reprint text, tables or figures. You may complete this form and fax it to the publisher or author of the material you wish to use.

Please compile and scan all your permissions documentation into a single PDF file to submit along with your manuscript.

  • Order Form for Offprints (optional)

Authors wishing to have offprints (reprints) prepared should fill out the Order Form for Offprints. Scan it into a PDF file and submit it along with the manuscript.

Manuscript and Documentation Submission

The manuscript, transfer of copyright agreement, permissions documentation, and offprints order form (if wish to order offprints) should be submitted in PDF files (each in separate file). These should be submitted online through the manuscript submission site. The paper ID and password (found in the abstract submission confirmation web page and e-mail) are required to access the manuscript submission site. The deadline for manuscript submission is April 15, 2008.
