Author Guidelines

Electronic Guidelines

Style and Content. Articles should be informative and practical. The primary audience for Environmental Quality Management includes environmental managers, engineers, quality directors, and other environmental professionals.

Articles should be informative and analytical, but not narrowly technical. We seek material that will keep our readers up to date on both legal and practical developments in environmental management of business organizations.

Length. Articles may range in length from approximately 2,500 to 6,000 words. A 25- to 50-word summary of the article should be included.

Footnotes and References. Footnotes and references should be kept to a minimum. All references to journal articles and books should conform to the following style:

Journal article: Glynn, B. A. (2001, Autumn). Electronic trends in environmental reporting and recordkeeping. Environmental Quality Management, 11(1), 21-27.

Book: Bierma, T. J., & Waterstraat, F. L., Jr. (2000). Total cost of chemical ownership. In Chemical management: Reducing waste and cost through innovative supply strategies (Part 1, Chapter 5). New York: John Wiley & Sons.

Electronic: United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). (2009). Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). Retrieved from http://cdm.unfccc.int/index.html

URLs should be included for all electronic sources.

Author Biographies. A brief biographical statement for each author should accompany the article. This should include his or her title, field of expertise, company or other organizational affiliation, and the location of the organization.

Graphic Illustrations. All graphic illustrations should be presented as high-quality originals. Graphics provided in color will remain in color for the online version and will be converted to grayscale for the printed issue.

Submission Requirements. Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts via e-mail. Manuscripts should be sent as e-mail attachments (preferably in Microsoft Word) directly to the editor at caroljforrest@aol.com. Submitted articles must not have been published previously and may not be simultaneously submitted elsewhere.

Accepted Manuscripts. All accepted manuscripts are subject to editing. Authors have final approval of changes prior to publication.

Disk Submission Instructions

Please return your final, revised manuscript on disk as well as hard copy.
The hard copy must match the disk.

The Journal strongly encourages authors to deliver the final, revised version of their accepted manuscripts (text, tables, and, if possible, illustrations) on disk. Given the near-universal use of computer word-processing for manuscript preparation, we anticipate that providing a disk will be convenient for you, and it carries the added advantages of maintaining the integrity of your keystrokes and expediting typesetting. Please return the disk submission slip below with your manuscript and labeled disk(s).

Guidelines for Electronic Submission

Storage medium . Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts via e-mail. Otherwise preferred storage media is compact disc (CD).

Software and format . Microsoft Word is preferred, although manuscripts prepared with any other microcomputer word processor are acceptable. Refrain from complex formatting; the Publisher will style your manuscript according to the Journal design specifications. Do not use desktop publishing software such as Aldus PageMaker or Quark XPress. If you prepared your manuscript with one of these programs, export the text to a word processing format. Please make sure your word processing program's "fast save" feature is turned off. Please do not deliver files that contain hidden text: for example, do not use your word processor's automated features to create footnotes or reference lists.

Labels . Label all disks with your name, the file name, and the word processing program and version used.

All print reproduction requires files for all images. All images will be reproduced in a grayscale format in the printed issue. Images provided in color will remain in color for the online version.

Software and format . All illustration files should be in TIFF or EPS (with preview) formats. Do not submit illustrations embedded in Microsoft Word. In such cases, it is preferred to use the native application format.

Resolution . Journal quality reproduction will require grayscale files at resolutions yielding approximately 300 dpi. Bitmapped line art should be submitted at resolutions yielding 600-1200 dpi. These resolutions refer to the output size of the file; if you anticipate that your images will be enlarged or reduced, resolutions should be adjusted accordingly.

File names . Illustration files should be given the 2- or 3-letter extension that identifies the file format used (i.e., .tif, .eps)
