RD2018 Book Chapter Instructions

Continuing the tradition of previous meetings, participants are invited to submit a manuscript for publication as a chapter in the proceedings volume of the RD2018 meeting. The volume will be edited by the meeting organizers and has an anticipated publication date in 2019. The book will be published in Springer's series, Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology, which means this will be each chapter's official citation (Adv. Exp. Med. Biol.), rather than a book chapter, and it will be indexed in PubMed. As a registrant of the meeting, you will receive a copy of the book regardless of whether you contribute a chapter.

Important: Travel Awardees who are postdoctoral fellows or young faculty will be required to submit a chapter as a condition of their award. Awardees who are graduate students may submit a chapter at their option.

Please find detailed author instructions by following the link below. Due to the expected large number of submissions and the limited space in the book, authors must follow the instructions carefully and pay special attention to the length of their manuscript. Manuscripts that exceed the specified length will be returned to the authors for reduction in length.

Please submit your manuscripts as specified in the instructions to Catherine Bowes Rickman (bowes007@duke.edu).

The deadline for submission of a chapter is October 22, 2018. Manuscripts submitted after the deadline will not be considered for publication
