SUBMITTING YOUR COMPLETED PAPER FOR PUBLICATION
It is important that you follow these instructions for preparation your paper for CD-ROM proceedings.
Paper Style Formatting
Final copy should be styled according to the template provided. Papers should be in 2-column format, in 10 pt Times Roman or Calibri font style. All text should be single-spaced. A double space may be used when beginning a new section or paragraph. Paper Title MUST be 24 point Times Roman or Calibri font style with initial capitalization only. Title should be in bold face.
Please use as many as possible of your word processing software's automatic features. Input your text continuously; in other words, only insert hard returns at ends of paragraphs or headings, subheadings, lists, etc. Do not use space bar to make indents (e.g., to indicate paragraphs or in lists). A tab or an indent command should be used for this purpose.
Submission of Electronic Version: Submit the electronic versions (Word and PDF) through the ION Abstract Management Portal (AMP). When creating the PDF file please make sure all the fonts (including the true fonts) are embedded. If you have any questions please contact Miriam Lewis at 703-366-2723 or by e-mail email@example.com.
Your paper should be organized in the manner specified on the sample provided. For 8.5" x 11" paper use margins: top = 0.75" inches, bottom = 1" inches, and 0.75" inches for left and right.
For A4 paper, use the following margins: right & left margin = 0.59", bottom margin = 1.18", top margin on first page = 0.83" (title and authors list centered at the beginning of the paper), top margin on following pages = 0.79." Begin your paper with a brief Biography followed by the Abstract and Introduction. Your paper should conclude with Acknowledgments and (or) References.
Left- and right-justify your columns. Use tables and figures to adjust column length. Use automatic hyphenation and check spelling. Digitize or paste down figures.
Use of Graphics & Photos
Incorporate tables and graphs in the body of the text, centered withint the column. If a figure must span across two columns, try to place these figures at the top or bottom of the page. If a two-colun figure must go in the middle of the page, please make sure the text preceding the figure has wrapped from the left column into the right colun and then insert the figure. Figure captions should be centered and placed at the bottom of the figure.
Figure axis labels are often a source of confusion. Use words rather than symbols. For example, write “magnetization,” or “magnetization (M)” not just “M.” Put units in parentheses. Do not label axes only with units. In the example, write “Magnetization (A/m)” or “Magnetization (A .m1).” Do not label axes with a ratio of quantities and units. For example, write “Temperature (K),” not “Temperature/K.” Multipliers can be especially confusing. Write “Magnetization (kA/m)” or “Magnetization (103 A/m).” Figure labels should be legible, about 10-point type.
Use of Tables
Tables should be centered within the column. Large tables may span across both columns. Table captions should be centered above the table. Avoid placing tables before their first mention in the text.
When possible, use a table editor to create tables for your electronic version. Do not use spaces to align the columns of your table. Do Not use the "columns" feature to create tables. Identify each table with a bold numeric rererence and center it at the top of your table.
Do not insert page numbers to your paper.
Your paper must be in English.
Use 24 point Times Roman or Calibri font style with initial capitalization only. Title should be in bold.
Author & Affiliation
Use 10 point Times Roman or Calibri font style with affiliation in italics. (see template)
No embedded links may be included in the files submitted for ION GNSS+. Link URLs may be included as text in the body of the paper as long as the Word file and PDF files do not contain any active hyperlinks.
Use left justification, initial capitalization and bold lettering.
