Technical Requirements

We at MEJAM wish to accommodate as many people as possible. To this end we accept several different file formats for submission. Unfortunately, we can not support all word processing and typesetting formats. All articles will be converted to PDF format. The file formats we accept are below with detailed instructions for article submission in that format.

  • TeX/LaTeX
    • Two TeX files should be submitted, one for the abstract and one for the full article.
    • Use only the standard TeX or LaTeX language with all text and any supplemental definitions contained in a single file.
    • Do not include any graphic images in the body of the text. Place references to all images and figures in the body of the text and include the image files with your submission.
    • All graphic images should be in GIF, EPS, JPG or BMP form. Furthermore, they should be named according to their reference in the body of the text. For example, the image for a reference to Figure #7 should be something like fig_7.jpg.
  • Scientific Workplace, Word or Notebook Due to the increasing popularity of WYSIWYG TeX systems and the learning curve associated with coding standard TeX, we accept articles produced by the Scientific Workplace, Word, and Notebook software packages.
    • Two files should be submitted, one for the abstract and one for the full article.
    • Use only the styles that are included in the package. That is, do not use a user defined style.
    • Use only standard fonts. We may not have some specialized fonts.
    • Have all text and any supplemental definitions contained in a single file.
    • Do not include any graphic images in the body of the text. Place references to all images and figures in the body of the text and include the image files with your submission.

    • Include all graphics and text in a single document file. The graphics should be placed in the text body, there is no need for referencing.
    • Use only standard fonts. We may not have some specialized fonts.
    • Use the equation editor for mathematical formulas that are more complex than simple superscripts and subscripts.
    • Limit your use of in-line equations produced by the equation editor. Larger, more complicated expressions should be displayed in their own paragraph.
  • PDF
    • Since all published articles will be converted to PDF format, submissions in PDF format are also welcomed. If the original document was written in TeX/LaTeX, we would also appreciate the submission of the original document and supporting graphics files. Two files should be submitted, one for the abstract and one for the full article.

When the article and supporting graphics files are ready for submission e-mail all of the files to us as attachments to a single e-mail message. For convenience, you may submit a zip file containing all the needed files for the submission.
