Instructions for authors
Instructions on how to prepare a manuscript for submission to an IGS publication:
The Council of the IGS at its latest meeting in Beijing, China (29 July 2013) decided to offer authors a full ‘Gold Open Access’ option for the publication of their papers in all IGS publications. This option includes a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International Licence.
Initially there will be a flat fee for this option of £2300, irrespective of the paper’s length. This charge is subject to review in the near future to take account of the number of pages in the article.
Those authors who do not select this option will be subject to the normal IGS publication and page-charge policy.
The new class file and authors' guide have been updated (May 2015).
If English is not your first language and you are worried that your command of written English is not very good, please ask a friend or colleague with excellent English skills to check your paper before submission. This will speed up submission time considerably.
Alternatively, your manuscript can be professionally edited to improve the English before submission. Apply to the IGS office for details of professional copy editors who will be able to help. This service must be paid for by the author and does not guarantee acceptance.
