Information for Authors and Editors
Initial inquiries about publishing in the Fields Institute Monograph or Communications Series should be made to the
Authors are requested to send us an outline, and if possible, a sample chapter. Normally, Monographs should have between 150 and 650 pages. Please consult the Author Guide and the LaTeX guide and macros for details about manuscript preparation, including the use of the Springer macro package svmono.cls available here. Authors should include an abstract at the beginning of each chapter; it will appear in the e-book version of the monograph but not in the printed version.
When authors send us a more complete version (possibly a final or close- to-final draft) of the manuscript, we will forward it to referees appropriate to the area of the work.
The authors of a Monograph receive a total of 6 complimentary copies. If there are three or more authors, each author receives 2 copies. Royalty payments are fifteen percent of the Publisher's net sales.
Any author can purchase copies of any Springer publication, including his/her own, at a 33% discount.
Editors are requested to send us a tentative list of authors who have either agreed to submit an article to the proceedings or who you think are very likely to do so, as well as a title but preferably also a short description of the proposed lecture/article of each speaker. If the event is not sponsored by the Fields Institute, the editors should also send us
a copy of the proposal or some other detailed description for the conference, workshop, special year, etc. Please note that the editorial board attaches considerable importance to the inclusion of survey articles, if possible by prominent mathematicians. Normally, Communication volumes must have between 280 and 500 pages.
Editors may find these steps useful in carrying out the editing process of communications volumes.
Authors of articles should consult the Author Guide and the LaTeX guide and macros for details about manuscript preparation, including the use of the Springer macro package svmult.cls available here. They should include an abstract at the beginning of the article, and are encouraged to include as well key words and phrases and the AMS Mathematics Subject Classifications (2010).
Articles in Communication volumes are to be refereed. Editors are responsible for the refereeing of each article, and should forward the referees' reports to us along with the articles (revised if necessary, following the referees' reports) within 18 months of the conference or workshop from which the articles arise..
Each editor of a Communications volume will receive 2 copies of the volume.
Each author, up to a maximum of 20, will receive a copy of the published volume. In the case of more than 20 authors, we suggest that editors incorporate the charge for additional volumes into the conference budget. Authors and editors can purchase copies of any Springer publication, including his/her own, at a 33% discount.
