Guide for Authors

Preparing Files
ToKnowPress accepts text files in Microsoft Word and LaTeX format. Create a new file for each chapter of the book; front matter, bibliography, and other apparatus should also be in separate files. Files should be named by author, e.g. smith1.doc, smith2.doc, smith-bib.doc etc. Tables should be incorporated into the text, while graphs should be in separate Excel files.

LaTeX users should use book or report style. Please do not change the default formatting and make sure that you include all the necessary files.

For multiauthor books each chapter should be in a single file, including text, tables, and bibliography.

Manuscript Formatting
Use no formatting that is not essential to your manuscript. Paper size should be A4. Margins should be set for a 25 mm top, bottom, left, and right. The point size should be 12 and the font should be Times New Roman. Italics should be used for emphasis  and bold for headings. Chapters and sections should be numbered, e.g. 1, 1.1, 1.2, 1.2.1, 2, 2.1, etc.

The documentation should be in the Chicago Manual of Style (University of Chicago Press 2010) or in the APA format (American Psychological Association, 2010) but the same system should be used consistently through the whole manuscript. Editors of multiauthor books should make sure that all the authors follow the same style.

Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic citations lies entirely with the author(s).
