Submission of manuscripts
Manuscripts are preferred in good English. Both USA and UK spelling will be accepted. Authors are requested to have their manuscripts read by a person fluent in English before submission. The text, figure captions, figures and tables should be combined into one pdf-file. Before creating the pdf, please add line numbers to the text file (MsWord: file > page format > layout). This should be sent via Email to the Editor-in-Chief (Michael Wagreich):

Authors wishing to submit a manuscript in hard copy, rather than electronically, should contact the Editor-in-Chief first. Submission of an article is understood to imply that the article is original and unpublished and is not being considered for publication elsewhere.

Preparation of the text:
The manuscript should preferably be prepared on a word processor and printed with double line spacing and wide margins and include an abstract of not more than 500 words. An abstract written in German is also required. The title page should include the name(s) of the author(s), their affiliations and e-mail addresses. In the case of more than one author, please indicate to whom correspondence should be addressed.

References in the text should consist of the surname of the author(s), followed by the year of publication in parentheses. More than two authors should be cited with the first author's surname, followed by “et al.”. All references cited in the text should be given in the reference list and vice-versa. Citations to material “in preparation” or “submitted” are not accepted. Citations in the text should be chronological and in the form “(Ramsay and Huber, 1987; Faupl et al., 1999; Catlos et al., 2002)” or “according to Frank et al. (1973)”. The reference list at the end of the manuscript should be in alphabetical order with the following formats:

Ramberg, H., 1952. The Origin of Metamorphic and Metasomatic Rocks. The University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 317 pp.

Salemink, J., 1985. Skarn and ore formation at Seriphos, Greece, as a consequence of granodiorite intrusion. PhD Thesis, University of Utrecht, Utrecht, 232 pp.

Tables should be compiled on separate sheets and should be numbered according to their sequence in the text and should also be numbered sequentially in the submitted pdf file.

Illustrations should be submitted on separate sheets and numbered in the order that they are referred to in the text. Figures should be numbered sequentially in the submitted pdf file. Figures should be submitted at the size preferred for printing. Note that lettering in the final illustrations should be between 6 and 12 points and the minimum line thickness used should be 0.5 pt. The page format of the journal (ISO A4) should be considered in designing the drawings.
Authors wishing to use colour reproduction will be charged the extra printing costs of € 150,- per colour figure; they should inform the editors on submission of the text.

Figure sizes and resolution:

The authors are requested to supply 4-6 keywords that can be used for indexing/abstracting purposes.
