In order to make the process simple for authors, Gazettes accepts unformatted initial submissions in Word, PDF, or RTF. However, we encourage authors to read the formatting guidelines below and to see how our reviewers and editors prefer to receive. Once an article is accepted for publication the manuscript must be formatted and submitted in Word, not PDF or RTF, with the source files of all figures and tables.
Gazettes requires 2 separate manuscripts to be submitted. One must be formatted for the selected Journal, and the other for the biannual print issue. Note that biannual print issues only feature curated articles.
For the Journal, please include a title, an abstract, keywords, an introduction, main text containing background, methods, results, discussion, and conclusions, end text containing acknowledgements, author names, author affiliations, author contributions, ethics statement, competing interest declaration, data information, and funding information, references, figures, tables, supplementary information.
For print, manuscript must start with a fully referenced short summary section, separate from the main text without numbers, abbreviations, acronyms or measurements. This is for general readers and should contain few sentences of elementary introduction, brief rationale of the work, statement of the major conclusions beginning with "we show that" or similar, and main findings stated in a general tone. The main text with references, figures and tables should not exceed 6 pages.
