Style and Formatting Guidelines

Manuscripts must be original and submitted exclusively to the IAD/CSP Book Series; we will not consider a manuscript that is under review elsewhere or that has been published previously in a similar form. We request the right of first refusal in writing before sending the manuscript out for review. The contributor shall be deemed to have granted exclusive license to publish to the IAD/CSP Book Series.

The author is responsible for understanding and following the principles that govern "fair use" of quotations and illustrations and for obtaining written permission to publish, where necessary. Accuracy in citations and references is also the author's responsibility.
