Application Note Preparation
It is important that each company's material fits within the allotted space. The editors cannot be responsible for substantial editing or handling of application notes that deviate from the following guidelines:
Each application note page should be no more than 500 words in length and should follow the following format.
• Title: short, specific, and clear
• Abstract: brief, one- or two-sentence abstract
• Experimental Conditions
• Two graphic elements: one is the company logo; the other may be a sample chromatogram, figure, or table
• The company's full mailing address, telephone number, fax number, and Internet address
All text will be published in accordance with LCGC's style to maintain uniformity throughout the book. It also will be checked for grammatical accuracy, although the content will not be edited. Text should be sent in electronic format, preferably using Microsoft Word.
Refer to photographs, line drawings, and graphs in the text using arabic numerals in consecutive order (Figure 1, etc.). Company logos, line drawings, graphs, and charts must be professionally rendered and submitted as .TIF or .EPS files with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. Lines of chromatograms must be heavy enough to remain legible after reduction. Provide peak labels and identification. Provide figure captions as part of the text, each identified by its proper number and title. If you wish to submit a figure or chromatogram, please follow the format of the sample provided below.
Each table should be typed as part of the main text document. Refer to tables in the text by roman numerals in consecutive order (Table I, etc.). Every table and each column within the table must have an appropriate heading. Table number and title must be placed in a continuous heading above the data presented. If you wish to submit a table, please follow the format of the sample provided below.
