ANZIAM Journal - Paper preparation

Authors of articles submitted for publication in The ANZIAM Journal are asked to ensure that their manuscripts are in a form suitable for sending to the printer. The Editors reserve the right to return poorly presented material to authors for revision. The authors of any accepted papers may elect to speed up publication by having their papers appear only in the Electronic Supplement to the ANZIAM Journal. The fastest route to publication is to submit the manuscript specifically for publication in the Supplement. In order to minimize the time that it takes such a paper to appear, there are additional instructions for manuscripts submitted to the Electronic Editor.

1. Submission

This journal is typeset in LaTeX. It will speed up processing of accepted papers if an electronic version of the manuscript, preferably TeX-based, is available. Download the ANZIAM Journal style files (.zip, 137 kb). However, such a file need not be sent with the submitted paper, but will be requested by the Editor if the paper is accepted. The author should submit four copies to the Editor or an appropriate Associate Editor.

2. Abstract

An abstract not exceeding 250 words should be included in the manuscript.

3. Style

The manuscript should conform to the following rules. In case of any doubt, authors are advised to refer to previous papers in the Journal.

  • Main headings should be numbered, centred and shown thus:
2. Preliminary results

  • The titles Lemma, Theorem, Proof, Corollary, Remark, Definition etc. should be left-justified and numbered consecutively with arabic numerals, for example:

    Lemma 1. The content of the lemma, theorem etc. should follow, as here.
  • Manuscripts should be typed, on high quality A4 or quarto bond paper, one side only with at least double spacing, and with a margin of at least 4cm all around. If the title is long, supply also a shortened form of the title not exceeding 40 characters, including spaces. If acknowledgements of support and assistance are made, these should be given at the end of the article. Footnotes should be avoided. The address should be shown under the author's name, including e-mail address if available.

4. Equations

Equations should be typed wherever possible, and punctuated to conform to their place in the syntax of the sentence. Equation numbers should be shown on the right in round brackets.

5. References

The reference list should be in Alphabetical Order by name of first author, preceded by a reference number in square brackets. These references should be cited in the text by giving the appropriate number in square brackets. The following layout for books, journal articles, theses, articles in books, and conference proceedings respectively, must be followed.

6. Tables

Each should be typed on a separate sheet with a centred heading Table 1 (or 2, 3, etc.), followed by a caption. The location should be shown in the text, for example:

Table 1 near here

7. Figures

Each figure should have a caption beginning: Figure 1 (or 2, 3, etc.). A list of these captions should be provided on a separate page at the end of the manuscript. Location of figures in the text should be shown, for example:

Figure 1 near here

Authors should provide diagrams drawn to professional standards in the form of encapsulated Postscript files. Other forms of diagrams drawn to professional standard may be acceptable, however this may also necessitate a payment from the author(s) to cover additional cost involved in processing them.
