 Cover sheet 

Below is the way your cover sheet should look.  It has been done in courier font to distinguish it from the text of this Guide, but you can use any easily readable font (12 point, Times Roman or Arial is recommended).

  • For drafts, place the cover sheet in the body of the e-mail for v1 only of your ms.  No need to send with subsequent drafts of your ms.

  • For final version, place the cover sheet at the head of your ms Word document, after the reviewer comments and your responses, attached to your email.  Use Word 2003 or earlier.

  • Always indicate the ms ID at the top, in large (16 or 18pt and in bold).
