Instructions for LATEX users

Initial Submission

The Wiley-VCH online submission system can handle Postscript and PDF files, but not native LATEX files. Authors are strongly encoraged to use online submission through this system to speed the handling of manuscripts. Only a few guidelines are to be observed, you may lay out your document as you wish, but for easy reading by editors and referees.

  • Integrate tables and figures where they appear in the text.
  • Use dvips (for Postscript) or PDFTEX to prepare the file to be uploaded. Postscript is preferred so the PDF file can be prepared by the system according to house standards (compression, resolution etc.).
  • To make your manuscript look a bit prettier on screen, use type 1 fonts with dvips (see FAQ at for details). Modern installations will have this by default.

Upon Acceptance

Upon acceptance, we ask you to prepare your manuscript by using the template provided below. Basically, keep your file as simple as possible. It will not be used directly to typeset your manuscript but will be converted prior to editing and typesetting (latex2rtf).
