*/Notes for Edited Book Chapter Contributors/*
1. There is no charge for inclusion in the published book. An auxiliary
service is available for any authors interested in Open Access. Open
Access makes the chapter visible free of charge to anyone in the world
who has Internet access.
2. There are no page charges for black and white figures and
illustrations submissions provided they are sent to Nova with the source
files. Color illustrations are billed at the current rate.
3. A free copy of the e-book version of the book is sent to the
first-listed contributor of each chapter. Additional copies are
available at a 20% discount. Publication in digital form takes place at
approximately the same time as the printed version.
4. The scientific community is the intended audience. Books are marketed
by direct mail, space ads, review copies, online bookstore postings and
by our international distributors.
5. The choice of theme and approach are at the discretion of the author
but preliminary acceptance is only upon submission of the draft
abstract. The line-up of chapters is a constantly changing landscape
since discussions, commitments and submissions continue on a daily basis
right up to and sometimes beyond the close of each volume.
6. An abstract in the following form is required consisting of: 1.
150-500 words; 2. Author affiliations; and 3. Estimated date of chapter
submission and Copyright Transfer. Please include the abstract as part
of an email and not as an attachment if possible. Acceptance of topics
is based partially on which topics have already been accepted for
particular volumes. The reply to the draft abstract will contain details
about reference styles and other relevant technical details. A reply and
decision may be expected within 7 days if the word Abstract is contained
within the Subject Line of the email.
7. Co-authors may be invited by you at your discretion without
discussion with Nova.
8. Copyright is transferred to Nova via email. Another form will be sent
via email along with the electronic page proofs.
9. Personalized chapter offprints are available.

When submitting your manuscript, please indicate the program you used
(i.e., MS Word 2003) in the text of your email accompanying the attached
manuscript. If Latex, Nova requests use of the Nova macro. The Nova
