Author Guidelines

PAPER LENGTH

If your paper is submitted as a long paper, your manuscript should not be longer than 5,000 words excluding abstract, key words, figures, tables and bibliography. If it is submitted as a short paper, the limit is 3,000 words. You are free to choose which type of paper to submit irrespective of your presentation type at CAA2013.


AUTHORS AND AFFILIATION

Provide the full names and affiliations of all authors, including e-mail addresses. Please indicate the name of the corresponding author.


ABSTRACT AND KEYWORDS

Provide an abstract for your paper of 150 words maximum. Provide 3-5 keywords describing the contents of your paper.

TEXT

  • Submit your text single-spaced, in 11-point Times New Roman. Please set paper size to A4 portrait with 2.5 cm margins on all sides.
  • Avoid all formatting.
  • Please do not indent the beginnings of paragraphs.
  • Provide clear headings where necessary, indicated by a number (i.e. 1 Heading Level One, 1.1 Heading Level Two).
  • The use of both bulleted and numbered lists is allowed.
  • Spelling should conform to British practice and follow the Oxford English Dictionary.
  • Submit tables, diagrams, figures etc. in separate files. These should be numbered consecutively (see below the FILE NAMING section); indicate in the text where exactly you want these to be inserted.
  • Submit figures and diagrams in their original format and not as a Word file.
  • Add a separate list for tables, diagrams, figures, graphs, maps, etc.
  • Create tables by using tabs (as little as possible), and not by using space.


BIBLIOGRAPHY

Follow the Chicago style of formatting, author-date system: http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html

The Chicago style requires you to use full first and last names for authors; since this is highly impractical, please use initials and last names only.

If you are using the Mendeley referencing system please make sure that you have chosen the Chicago Manual of Style (Author-Date format) template. In EndNote the style is called Chicago Manual of Style 16th Edition B (not A). It can be downloaded from the EndNote website: http://endnote.com/downloads/style/chicago-manual-style-16th-edition-b

Please note: it is essential that you submit the references in the correct format. Manuscripts that do not follow the correct referencing style will be sent back to authors for revision and might risk missing the final deadline and consequently exclusion from publication.

 

IMAGES

Note that the printed version of the CAA Proceedings will have black and white images only. The online version of the CAA Proceedings can have colour versions of the images. If your paper has been accepted for publication on the printed proceedings, and you are submitting colour images, please provide greyscale versions as well. Make sure that all of your colour images are usable when converted to greyscale.

All images must be at least 600 dpi and either 8-bit greyscale or RGB. Please use either .jpg, .tiff or .eps files. Verify that all images are the correct size: images must be less than 16 cm wide and 24.7 cm high.

 

FILE NAMING

- Please name your manuscript Word file as: surname of first author, first 2 meaningful words of the title (shortened, if needed) excluding articles, and number of submission in the editorial process, all separated by underscore, e.g. 'Traviglia_ArcheolSurvey_1' where '1' indicates the first, initial submission; when you will resubmit your amended manuscript after the review that number will have to be changed in '_2').

- Please, similarly name your images, tables, diagrams etc: surname of first author, first 2 meaningful words of the title, file content abbreviation with file consecutive number, and number of submission in the editorial process e.g. 'Traviglia_ArcheolSurvey _fig1-1' or 'Traviglia_ArcheolSurvey _tab1-1'.

Please note: it is essential that you name the files according to these instructions. Paper proposals that do not follow the correct naming style and zipping procedure will be sent back to authors for revision and might risk missing the final deadline and consequently exclusion from publication.

 

HOW TO SUBMIT

Please follow these instructions carefully. It is essential that you submit all your files in a single zip file (abstract, paper, images, tables etc. and -later on- copyright release form). Please make sure you first create a folder including all the files your want to submit and then you zip it.

Name the folder as: surname of first author, first 2 meaningful words of the title (shortened, if needed) excluding articles, and number of submission in the editorial process, all separated by underscores, e.g. 'Traviglia_ArcheolSurvey_1' and then maintain this naming when you zip the folder.

Only in this way the original naming, essential for quick paper identification, will be saved through the OCS upload procedure.

 

COPYRIGHT RELEASE FORM

Upon acceptance of the manuscript, all authors must fill in and sign the copyright release form. This includes co-authors.
