Instructions for CHAPTER Submission for ISAC XX BOOK: ( Deadline October 31, 2017)

Dear All,

Thank you again for presenting your work at ISAC 2017.  I hope you are enjoying the remainder of the summer!  Springer has agreed to publish the ISAC XX book as they have done in the past. We will follow a similar format. Attached is a camera ready sample chapter to guide you as to how your chapter should look prior to submission.  Plenary talks with submitted to J. Physio – see information in Caps below:

Those who presented other 10 min talks or posters are invited to contribute articles of up to approximately 5-6 typeset pages (each typeset page contains approximately 500 words). These page counts include references. The general format and style should follow the guidelines outlined on pages 3-8 of the attached key style points guidelines from Springer (attached).

Each chapter can include as many figures or tables as desired, but all figures have to be submitted as high-resolution images.
Each chapter should begin with an abstract that summarizes the content of the chapter in 150 to 250 words. This abstract will appear on and be available with unrestricted access to facilitate online searching (e.g. Google) and allow unregistered users to read the abstract.  Keywords (3-6) must also be included. The final layout of chapters will be fully typeset and you will receive chapter proofs. Each article submitted must also be accompanied by a consent form.

Please review the attached materials:

  1. Authors consent to publish (this will need to be signed and return with chapter)
  2. How tables should be prepared

  4. Key style points guidelines from Springer

The editors (ISAC members) will edit for English grammar but otherwise your manuscript will not be changed.   You will be able to approve the edited version prior to it being sent for publication.
