Guide and Checklist for AFS Book Chapter Authors
Please follow these guidelines and the attached checklist in preparing your chapter manuscript for submission
to the project editor or chapter coordinator.
Preparing a Chapter Contribution
- You are responsible for preparing and delivering any figures, tables, appendices, bibliography, and other
materials related to your chapter.
- If previously published material (either text or graphics) appears in the chapter, you must obtain copyright
permission. Please contact Aaron Lerner at 301-897-8616, ext. 231 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- It is advisable to begin your requests for permission to use copyrighted material early, since they must be
obtained in writing and could take some time.
- Prior to submitting your manuscript, please refer to the Author Checklist for AFS Book Chapter Preparation
Reviewing Page Proofs
You will be sent page proofs of your chapter. This is the last time you will see your work before publication.
Please note the following requirements.
- Only typographical, spelling, or other minor errors can be corrected at this time.
- Substantive editorial changes will not be permitted.
- Proofs must be checked and returned within one week.
- Only the AFS Editorial Office staff will review second page proofs to ensure that all corrections were made.
No additional author corrections will be allowed at this point.
