MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONEarthquake Engineering & Structural Dynamics operates an online submission and peer review system that allows authors to submit articles online and track their progress via a web interface.
Please read the remainder of these instructions to authors and then visit http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/eqe and navigate to the Earthquake Engineering & Structural Dynamics online submission site. IMPORTANT: Please check whether you already have an account in the system before trying to create a new one. If you have reviewed or authored for the journal in the past year it is likely that you will have had an account created.
All papers must be submitted via the online system.
Author's Novelty File: All Authors are now required to supply an additional file. Describe, in a bulleted list (less than 100 words), the new contributions of your paper to the field.
Co-author Consent File:The submitting author must provide a separate file alongside their paper which includes a statement confirming that all authors named in the manuscript are aware of the submission and have agreed for the paper to be submitted to EESD. Failure to provide this file, or subsequent discovery that consent has not been provided by all authors, will result in the manuscript being returned to you. If you are the only author on the paper, please simply upload a file acknowledging the consent requirements.
File types. Preferred formats for the text and tables of your manuscript are .doc, .rtf, .ppt, .xls. LaTeX files may be submitted provided that an .eps or .pdf file is provided in addition to the source files. Figures may be provided in .tiff or .eps format.
Non-LaTeX users: Upload your manuscript files. At this stage, further source files do not need to be uploaded.
LaTeX users: For reviewing purposes you should upload a single .pdf that you have generated from your source files. You must use the File Designation "Main Document" from the dropdown box.
Non-LaTeX users: Editable source files must be uploaded at this stage, in addition to a complete manuscript for review. Tables and figures must also be uploaded on separate pages or in separate figure files after the reference list.
LaTeX users: When submitting your revision you must still upload a single .pdf that you have generated from your revised source files. You must use the File Designation "Main Document" from the dropdown box. In addition you must upload your TeX source files. For all your source files you must use the File Designation "Supplemental Material not for review". Previous versions of uploaded documents must be deleted. If your manuscript is accepted for publication we will use the files you upload to typeset your article within a totally digital workflow.
OnlineOpen is available to authors of primary research articles who wish to make their article available to non-subscribers on publication, or whose funding agency requires grantees to archive the final version of their article. With OnlineOpen, the author, the author's funding agency, or the author's institution pays a fee to ensure that the article is made available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley Online Library, as well as deposited in the funding agency's preferred archive. For the full list of terms and conditions, see http://wileyonlinelibrary.com/onlineopen#OnlineOpen_Terms

The language of the journal is English. Font size should be 10 points for the body of your manuscript and 9.5 points for the abstract, in one of the standard fonts: Times, Helvetica, or Courier is preferred.
- Papers should not normally exceed 22 pages of single-spaced text, including figures and tables. Authors should provide compelling justification for manuscripts which exceed this limit. Tables and figures should be embedded in the text in the "Main Document" for review.
- Papers of six pages or less may be classified as 'short communications'. These papers will receive the normal review procedure, but will be given publication priority over papers of normal length.
- During the submission process you must enter the full title, short title of up to 70 characters and names and affiliations of all authors. Give the full address, including email, telephone and fax, of the author who is to check the proofs.
- Include the name(s) of any sponsor(s) of the research contained in the paper, along with grant number(s) .
- Enter an abstract of up to 250 words for all articles. An abstract is a concise summary of the whole paper, not just the conclusions, and is understandable without reference to the rest of the paper. It should contain no citation to other published work.
- Include up to six keywords that describe your paper for indexing purposes.
- Companion or multi-part papers are strongly discouraged. Authors are encouraged to present at the outset a single integrated manuscript by deleting analytical and experimental details (which may be of limited interest) and referring to a website or a longer research report where this information is available.

*The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is an identification system for intellectual property in the digital environment. Developed by the International DOI Foundation on behalf of the publishing industry, its goals are to provide a framework for managing intellectual content, link customers with publishers, facilitate electronic commerce, and enable automated copyright management.
Illustrations. Upload each figure as a separate file in either .tiff or .eps format, with the lead author's name, the figure number and the top of the figure indicated. Compound figures e.g. 1a, b, c should be uploaded as one figure. Tints are not acceptable. Lettering must be of a reasonable size that would still be clearly legible upon reduction, and consistent within each figure and set of figures. Where a key to symbols is required, please include this in the artwork itself, not in the figure legend. All illustrations must be supplied at the correct resolution:
- Black and white and colour photos - 300 dpi
- Graphs, drawings, etc - 800 dpi preferred; 600 dpi minimum
- Combinations of photos and drawings (black and white and colour) - 500 dpi
Colour policy. Where colour is necessary to the understanding of the figures, colour illustrations will be reproduced in the journal without charge to the author.
Further information. For accepted manuscripts the publisher will supply proofs to the corresponding author prior to publication. This stage is to be used only to correct errors that may have been introduced during the production process. Prompt return of the corrected proofs, preferably within two days of receipt, will minimise the risk of the paper being held over to a later issue. Once your article is published online no further amendments can be made. Free access to the final PDF offprint of your article will be available via Author Services only. Please therefore sign up for Author Services if you would like to access your article PDF offprint and enjoy the many other benefits the service offers. Additional copies of the journal may be ordered. There is no page charge to authors.
