MANUSCRIPT PREPARATION

A manuscript should start with a succinct statement of the problem, the
results achieved, their significance and a comparison with previous work.
This material should be understandable to non-specialists. A technical
exposition directed to the specialist should follow. The length, excluding
cover page and bibliography, should not exceed 10 pages.
The manuscript should be easy to read, using at least 11 point font size on
U.S. standard 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper with no less than one inch margin all
around. If authors believe that more details are absolutely necessary to
substantiate the claims of the paper, they may include a clearly marked
appendix. An email address for the contact author should be included.
Manuscripts that deviate significantly from these guidelines risk rejection
without consideration of their merits.

MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION

Send your manuscript via e-mail to Dr. Andrey Rzhetsky (ar345 at columbia.edu).
You will receive confirmation of receipt (or notification that the
manuscript was unprintable) within a few business days. Your confirmation
will go to the e-mail address from which the manuscript was sent. Please
contact us if you do not hear from us.

To be considered, your submission must conform to these simple rules. The
file must be an e-mail attachment, not embedded in the body of the message.
The file format must be Microsoft Word, PostScript or PDF. The printed
manuscript must
contain the e-mail and street address of the corresponding author.

The following suggestions are recommendations only. Your file should be
small because files over a few megabytes may not survive e-mail. Your file
should be compressed, preferably with zip or gzip. Compression reduces the
size of
your e-mail message, and provides us with a simple test for e-mail
corruption.
