EDITORIAL POLICY: Manuscripts treating basic research in any aspect of speleology will be considered for publication. They must not have been previously published, accepted for publication, or be under consideration elsewhere.
All manuscripts are to be in English. Metric and Celsius units must be used, and SI units are preferred. The CBE Style Manual, the Handbook for Authors of Papers of the American Chemical Society, and Webster's Ninth Collegiate Dictionary are useful guides for matters of form and spelling.
The original of the manuscript must be typed double-spaced on one side of white bond paper approximately 8.5 x 11 inches, leaving margins of one inch. Use triple-space above headings.
The most effective way to submit a manuscript is as an attachment to an e-mail message sent to the editor. A second approach is to submit three (3) hard copies of the manuscript, figures, and tables along with a digital copy of the manuscript, figures, and tables in separate files.
Number pages consecutively at the top right-hand corner. Underline scientific names of genera and lower categories. Acknowledgements should be on a separate, double-spaced page. Each figure and table must be referred to in the text. Text references are by author, followed by year of publication.
The sequence of material in the manuscript should be as follows:
