Remediation: The Journal of Environmental Cleanup Costs, Technologies & Techniques is geared to environmental engineers, managers, counsel, and consultants. Authors must keep this readership in mind. The articles should be informative, analytical, and practical, and, if possible, should include a case study. We seek material that will offer our readership new insights into, and new approaches to, remediation activities and issues.

Manuscripts are considered for publication with the understanding that they represent original material, and are offered exclusively and without fee to Remediation.

Articles must not have been published previously and may not simultaneously be submitted elsewhere.

Articles should range from 3,700-7,500 words (15-30 pages), double-spaced on one side only of 8.5" x 11" heavy-duty white bond paper.

Margins should be set to allow for 55 characters per line . A 1" margin should be left at the top and bottom of each manuscript page.

Figures, tables, and photographs should be labeled as "Exhibits" and cited appropriately within the text. All exhibits should include a title no longer than ten words and include a legend. The following file formats are acceptable and should be at least 300 dpi: jpg, tiff, and pdf. Exhibits may be embedded at the end of the manuscript file or saved as separate files for submission purposes.

Try to use as few footnotes as possible. If they are indispensable to the subject, they should appear double-spaced on a separate sheet of paper at the end of the article, following the APA (6th ed.) style for references. Please note the lack of italics in the footnotes. They should conform to the following format:

Journal : Bouwer, E.J., & McCarty, P.L. (1983). Transformations of halogenated organics compounds under dentrification conditions. Applied and Environmental Microbiology, 45, 1295–1299.

Book : Grady, N. & Weil, R. (1996). The nature and properties of soil (11th ed.). Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall.

Send photocopies of the original source of lengthy quotations . This enables us to confirm the absolute accuracy of the quotation.

Please seek clarity, brevity, and pertinence . Titles of articles should be short and clear. All accepted manuscripts are subject to editing.

A brief—50 words or less— biographical sketch of the author should accompany the article. The sketch should name the author's position, company or other professional organization, and field of expertise. Also submit a mailing address for each author.

A 100-to-125-word summary of the article should also be provided.

All unsolicited manuscripts must be accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Otherwise, they cannot be returned to the author. Also we encourage authors to submit manuscripts via e-mail.

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 . 3-1/2" high-density disk in IBM MS-DOS, Windows, or Macintosh format.

Software and format . Microsoft Word 6.0 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.

File names . Submit the text and tables of each manuscript as a single file. Name each file with your last name (up to eight letters). Text files should be given the three-letter extension that identifies the file format. Macintosh users should maintain the MS-DOS "eight dot three" file-naming convention.

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

All print reproduction requires files for full color images to be in a CMYK color space. If possible, ICC or ColorSync profiles of your output device should accompany all digital image submissions.

Storage medium . Submit as separate files from text files, on separate disks or cartridges. If feasible, full color files should be submitted on separate disks from other image files. 3-1/2" high-density disks, CD, and Iomega Zip disks can be submitted. At authors' request, cartridges and disks will be returned after publication.

Software and format . All illustration files should be in TIFF or EPS (with preview) formats. Do not submit native application formats.

Resolution . Journal quality reproduction will require greyscale and color files at resolutions yielding approximately 300 ppi. Bitmapped line art should be submitted at resolutions yielding 600-1200 ppi. 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).

Labels . Label all disks and cartridges with your name, the file names, formats, and compression schemes (if any) used. Hard copy output must accompany all files.
