Manuscript Preparation Instructions for Authors

Electronic submission or camera-ready copy welcomed. All manscripts are due by June 16, 1997 to:

David Scott, Dept Statistics MS-138, Rice University, 6100 Main, Houston, TX 77005-1892.

The proceedings volume is produced from camera-ready copy that the authors prepare according to the guidelines given below.

  1. Contributed papers should not exceed six pages and invited papers should not exceed ten pages. These pages include everything--- bibliography, tables, graphics, title, etc.

  2. Originals must be made by laser printer (not copies) on standard paper (8 1/2 x 11). Refer to item 5 below for a description of the typing area.

  3. Number the pages in LIGHT BLUE on the back of each page. Do not number the pages on the front.

  4. Center your title on the middle six inches of the first page, and list the authors and addresses under the title. If you cite support, do so in a footnote. Keywords and phrases are not required.

  5. There will be two columns on each page. The side margins are 3/4 inch to the left of the first column, 1/4 inch between columns, and 3/4 inch to the right of the second column. The typing area for each column is 3 and 3/8 inches wide. Text should begin 1 and 1/4 inches from the top of the page, and leave one inch at the bottom of the page. If possible, use right justification for each column.

  6. To ensure uniformity of appearance, use 10 point type, preferably computer modern or Times Roman.

  7. The manuscript should be single spaced. If you are familiar with TeX, this means a baseline skip of 12 points.

  8. The abstract should begin the first column.

  9. The publisher will number the pages and insert a running head outside the typing area. On a separate sheet of paper, please indicate your choice of running head.

  10. Other formatting is left to the discretion of the author(s).
