NB - Please
follow all indications regarding ms ID.
Each ms must have an ID. Before sending a ms, request a ms ID from the Editor or Business Section Editor. Which Editor depends on the focus of your article. To obtain a ms ID, send to the relevant Editor:
The Editor will then attribute a ms ID to your article. Pls follow these indications exactly.
The ms ID must be used on all documents and in all correspondence (except a request for an ID). If no ms ID is quoted, the correspondence will be ignored. Place the ms ID in the following places:
Format of ID
The format of the ID depends on whether your article comes under the business banner or not. The exact format of the ID must be used every time. Use the ID in the subject line in e-mail messages and as filenames for files. Never send compressed (e.g., zip) files; always use .doc (not .docx).
Ordinary (non-business) IDs are as follows. (For business IDs, see below.)
Notes. The base of the ID is as
Start-of-title = suffix.
Be sure to update the v number when you send in a new version.
Do not add any or numbers or letters or words to the start of the subject line in the email. Do not add anything to the filename other than what is indicated above.
Make sure that the start of the ID (e.g., 593_v3_...) is at the start of the subject line and the start of any filename, i.e., no extra characters before the ID. If you put in a subject line (or filename) like "My article 93_v3_..." or "Fig1_3_v3_...", then your email is likely to go to the wrong place, and maybe go unnoticed.
For filenames for hi-res graphics (sent only with the final ms), see the visuals page.
Always send word files in .doc format (not .docx), from v1 to final. Always send graphics files with filenames similar to the ms file. Never compress or zip files.
Business IDs are as follows.
Business articles follow a different scheme. Obtain, from the Business Section Editor, a business ID for an article that has a business focus. Otherwise, follow instructions for ms IDs, e.g., use ms ID in subject line of all emails.
