2008 Alaska Park Science Symposium in conjunction with
|Muir Inlet||West Arm|
Figures: Provide at least four high resolution illustrations, showing personnel at work, project equipment, techniques used, maps, data, etc. We can frequently use many more illustrations, especially for shorter summaries. If more illustrations are received than can be accommodated within the available article space, others may be considered for the cover or introductory pages. A review copy of each illustration can be inserted at the end of the text file to facilitate peer review. However, illustrations must also be provided as separate files as indicated below.
Format for and Delivery of Illustrations: Digital photographs taken at 5 megapixels or more (approx. 300 pixels per inch at 8"x10") are best for full-page photos. Figures should be forwarded in their original format. For example, if sending a figure that was created in Excel, please include the Excel file. Do not export images into PowerPoint or Word - embedded illustrations are not usable. GIS maps and other computer-generated illustrations should be exported in a pixel-based file (such as bitmap, tiff or jpeg) at a high resolution (300 pixels per inch [300 dpi] at a size of approximately 8" x 10"). Computer-generated illustrations, such as graphs, and digital drawings, such as GIS maps, should be forwarded in both digital (CD) and hard copy formats. Label printed illustrations (on a sticky note) with article title and placement information. Original color slides, color prints, and black-and-white prints (with negatives) are also acceptable, but please include a self addressed return address label if you want original illustrations returned. DO NOT submit illustrations taken from PowerPoint or PDF formats since the resolution is too low for publication. Please contact the editor for additional information or clarification.
Captions: Provide captions, in the text file, for all illustrations submitted. Also provide full credits for illustrations, listing both the copyright owner (individual, government agency, company, etc.) and the artist or photographer if known (e.g. National Park Service photograph by Bob Winfree). Authors are responsible for securing permission to use any illustrations that they did not personally create. Include written permission for us to use the images with your manuscript (see Deed of Restricted Transfer - available for download on top of page.)
Peer Review: Articles for the proceedings will be peer reviewed by Symposium participants, agency scientists, and others. Final acceptance for publication is contingent on the author’s ability to address reviewer’s comments to the editorial board’s satisfaction.
Duplicate Publication: In general, the text, tables, and figures submitted for these proceedings should not be identical to what you have published or will publish elsewhere, with the exception of papers intended to summarize previous studies. While some journals don’t consider summaries or extended abstracts as duplicate publications, authors planning to publish the same material in other journals should check with those journals regarding their policies.
Registered Symposium Participants: There are no page charges. However, at least one author must be registered as a Symposium participant.
Form of Submission: Submissions should be provided as a digital text and separate image files on a clearly labeled CD-ROM (use IBM/PC formatted discs - not Apple).
Deadline October 16, 2008: Manuscripts should be prepared prior to the symposium and brought to the symposium on a CLEARLY LABELED CD-ROM. Extensions (up to 60 days) may be considered for extenuating circumstances. Questions about the proceedings, or requests for an extension, may be directed to Robert Winfree.
Deliver the CD and other materials to the Symposium Registration Desk from October 14-16, or mail to:
