Authors, who would like to publish an article in the psf
journal, should apply the following hints.
All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed and must be ready for
print. They should have 25 to 30 manuscript pages (including plates) maximum,
for more extended, please, contact the editor. They should be printed in A4
format (Laser-quality), one-spaced, in Times font (10 cpi), and without page
numbers. The margins must have 2.5 cm (top, left, right, and bottom); for the
first page, please, use an upper margin of 2.0 cm.
Only electronic submission (windows; word, wordperfect) and one printed manuscript can be accepted.
At the beginning of the paper write the title (centered, bold, Times 12 cpi font). If the article is written in German please give an English translation (centered, bold, Times 10 cpi font). The title is followed by the author's names, their residence and number of figures, tables and plates (centered, Times 10 cpi font). After that a complete reference, keywords, addresses of the authors and table of contents follow. All papers have to be preceded by a brief German "Zusammenfassung" and corresponding English "Abstract". Articles in German and English will be accepted. If the article is in German, an English translation is necessary for title, figure and table captions and in longer articles also for "Conclusions" at the end of the paper. If needed, ask the editor for help in German translation.
For photographs and photoplates, electronic submission is preferred.
The scale should be drawn on each picture or photographed along with the subject.
If the entire plates are smaller than 16 x 24 cm (print space), they must be
enlarged by the same factor in length and wide.
Indicate the supposed position of the figure in the text.
Figures will usually be printed in black-and-white. Colour printing (free of charge) is possible, but, previous consultation of the editor is needed. For the electronic version of the reprints (PDF file) there is no limitation in the use and number of coloured figures
