Electronic submission of manuscripts

Leiden, Muenich and Paris, 21 July 1998

Astronomy and Astrophysics welcomes electronically submitted manuscripts. We have experimented in the last few months and we are confident that we can now handle a much larger electronic inflow. Instructions for electronic submission follow. For the submission of Letters email is usually convenient. This is not the case for the Main Journal and for the Supplements, because the files are much longer; therefore we require transfer by ftp for the Main Journal and the Supplements. Here follow the detailed instructions:

1. Electronic submission of a manuscript to the LETTERS

  • (i) Please send only one single postscript file: this makes further handling easier (e.g. for sending the manuscript by email to a referee)

  • (ii) If your file is less than 1 Mbyte please use email. If it is longer use ftp.

  • (iii) If you send by ftp use the following set of instructions:

    • ftp ftp.mpa-garching.mpg.de
    • login: anonymous
    • password: your email address
    • cd incoming/aal
    • mkdir your surname
    • cd your surname
    • put nameofpaper.ps
    • bye
  • (iv) Send an email to the editor to confirm your submission.

2. Electronic submission for the MAIN JOURNAL and the SUPPLEMENTS

  • (i) Never submit a manuscript by email: most files in postscript format are more than one Mbyte large and block our email.

  • (ii) Send the manuscript by ftp in one postscript file. We accept gzipped and uuencoded files. If you cannot avoid sending more than one file, use the tar option.

  • (iii) When sending by ftp use the following set of instructions:

    • ftp aanda.strw.leidenuniv.nl or ftp aanda.obspm.fr
    • login: anonymous
    • password: your email address
    • cd /aanda
    • mkdir your surname
    • cd your surname
    • binary
    • put nameofpaper.ps
    • put fig1.ps (if applicable)
    • put etcetera (if applicable)
    • bye
  • (iv) Send an email to the editor to confirm your submission
