We prefer documents marked up in standard LaTeX (suggestions about the use of LaTeX). We also
accept Microsoft Word, in which case, you must supply us with the
graphics as separate files (see below).
We provide general guidelines to grammar and to CERN style, as
well as instructions and templates for CERN publications.
The final page make-up incorporates both text and figures.
Therefore we need the source of the figures supplied as separate files. We accept the
following formats: Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), PDF, PNG, TIFF, and JPEG.
When preparing your figures please be careful with light colours, which
might be difficult to distinguish or even to see when the report is printed (in
black and white).
An English-mother-tongue copy-editor will check the English and
the completeness of your document (figures, references and
bibliography). The copy-editor is responsible for the preparation
of documents for publication and works in close collaboration with
authors. She has experience in the publishing and production of
scientific documents and knowledge of bibliographic standards for
references. She ensures your document's conformity to the
styles and layout required.
