It is the responsibility of the Author to obtain the necessary permissions for images used in the volume.
The use of colour illustrations should be discussed with the Publishing department during the contract stage. Whilst the Academy will publish colour figures, it is important to consider how vital the requirement of colour is for the purpose of the volume. Colour printing impacts on the production costs and the price of the book. If the volume is particularly colour heavy, please consider if funding can be obtained, and discuss this with the Publishing department as early as possible.
For detailed information relating to image requirements, refer to the Illustrations sections in the style guide.
Abstracts and keywords
For the purposes of publishing your volume online, we will require the Author to provide keywords and an abstract for each chapter and the book as a whole. This information is required for the online publication and is not for print purposes.
Download a copy of the Keywords & abstracts template and refer to the Keywords & abstracts submission guidelines for examples of chapter and book information published online.
Please ensure that chapters, figures and tables are numbered correctly throughout the volume.
All papers should constitute numbered chapters. The Introduction chapter should not be numbered.
Figures and Tables should be numbered in sequence for each chapter, e.g. Figure 1.1, Figure 1.2, Table 1.1, Table 1.2, etc.
The preliminary pages of the complete volume text should include the following:
- Title page
- Contents list
- List of illustrations (if applicable)
- List of tables (if applicable)
- Preface and/or Acknowledgements
Other front matter not listed above, for instance Abbreviations, etc, is acceptable.
Once you are happy with the volume, the complete and final text should be submitted to the Publishing department for review ([email protected]).
