1. Instructions for Paper Preparation
Use of the JACoW templates is strongly suggested— always download the latest template (for Word, Latex and Open Document) Please do not reuse the source file from a paper submitted for a previous conference.
Ensure that the template you download corresponds to the version of software you are using. Do not convert documents across different platforms, MAC <> PC, or across different versions of Microsoft Word on the same platform. Always use the styles contained in the templates. The styles will automatically ensure correct typesetting and layout.
The correct use of the JACoW template will ensure the paper is not returned to the author for revision.
The Editor in Chief reserves the right to refuse paper publications that do not meet a reasonable level of preparation.
2. JACoW "Cat Scan Editor"
Before submission of Word and Latex documents, use JACoW’s Cat Scan Editor to obtain instant feedback on common formatting problems with your submission. With this tool, created by the team at ANSTO in collaboration with JACoW, you can make corrections to your paper before uploading to SPMS.
More information can be found on this help page.
At the discretion of the editorial team, papers with an excess of formatting problems will be returned to the author for revision.
