Instructions for submitting articles to NetSci
Our preferred method for submission of manuscripts is HTML ready format with associated graphics images saved as GIF formatted files. In addition, manuscripts prepared with Microsoft Word also can be submitted to NetSci. Submissions should be on a Macintosh formatted disk which can be delivered via surface delivery. Please send the disk, a printed copy of the submission and any diagrams to
Network Science Corporation
4411 Connecticut Avenue NW, STE 514
Washington, DC 20008
Tel: (828) 817-9811
Manuscripts also can be submitted electronically in native Microsoft Word or HTML format if the are sent to TheEditors@netsci.org as attached documents, BinHex/Stuffit, uuencoded, or ZIPped files. Documents prepared with other word-processing packages will not be accepted unless the file is submitted in "Text Only" (ASCII) mode.
Supporting diagrams and chemical structures should be submitted in JPEG, PICT or GIF format. Text and tables for the paper should be contained in one file for each figure, chart, illustration, etc.. Titles for graphics should be descriptive (e.g., Figure1, Figure2, or Scheme1) and should be referenced in the body of the paper. Original artwork can be scanned by the staff at NetSci, however, the quality of the final images cannot be guaranteed.
NetSci is designed to be an interactive journal. Thus, coordinate files for any structures and/or models which are part of the paper should be submitted as PDB, MOL or other chemistry MIME formatted files.
When preparing a manuscript, do not include any page-layout instructions such as placement information for graphics in the file. The text should be left justified, and automatic end-of-line hyphenation should be turned off. Use carriage returns only to end headings and paragraphs, not to break lines of text. References should conform to generally accepted format. While the editors at NetSci will attempt to proof read your copy, we cannot guarantee that we will find all typographical errors. Please check your final copy for consistent notation, correct spelling and ensure that all characters are correctly represented throughout the manuscript: for example, 1 (one) as opposed to l (ell) and 0 (zero) as opposed to O (oh).
If you supply your manuscript on disk, please label the disk with the title of the manuscript, author(s) name and affiliation(s). If you submit your manuscript electronically, please include this information at the top of the manuscript.
Chemical Abstracts Services has now begun to selectively cover those NetSci articles that report new chemical information, starting with the July 1995 issue. Because their coverage will be selective based on subject matter, originality, and identity of authorship, articles of a non-chemical nature such as those on repetitive stress injuries (the December, 1995 Issue) will not be covered.
The following is a typical record:
AN 125:57512 CA
TI A database system for combinatorial synthesis experiments
AU James, Craig A.; Weininger, David
CS Daylight Chemical Information Systems, Inc., Irvine, CA, 92715, USA
SO Network Sci. [Electronic Publication] (1995), 1(1, Avail. URL: http://www.awod.com/netsci/Issues/July95/feature7.html), No pp. given
As additional features become available, these instructions will be updated. For further information on NetSci, contact us at +1-828-817-9811 or use the Reader's Feedback form.
