INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING JVST MANUSCRIPTS
Papers presented at EIPBN 2017 shall be submitted for publication in the Nov/Dec 2017 issue of the Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology B (JVST-B). The papers will be peer reviewed. Deadline for manuscript submission to JVST is June 23, 2017. Click here for the JVST Article Temple for MS Word. Papers will be reviewed according to criteria set by the JVST and must meet JVST standards for both technical content and written English. All manuscripts are refereed to the same standards as regular JVST submissions.
Page Charges: AVS offers membership free to the first and corresponding authors on accepted JVST papers. This eliminates page charges as members publish free.Submit your manuscripts to the JVST journal, chosen for your specific conference, using the journals’ online manuscript submission system, the JVST Peer X-Press site: http://jvstb.peerx-press.org
In preparing your article, you should follow the instructions for contributors, which may be found on the Information for Contributors link at http://avs.scitation.org/jvb/authors/manuscript.
Authors are encouraged to use the JVST templates. The easiest way to prepare your manuscript is to use the available JVST Article Template to delete and replace text as necessary. Click here for the JVST Template for MS Word. This file and the template used to create it are attached/available through your conference site/chair and at the site above.
Note that acceptance to present at the conference does not guarantee the acceptance of the manuscript. To be published in JVST, the manuscript must:
Note: Authors should select “Regular Article” as the type of paper within the conference special issue (not Letter, Shop Note, etc.)
It is very IMPORTANT that authors indicate to which conference the paper is submitted. Online, you will have an opportunity to tell us that your paper is a part of a conference by choosing “Conference Paper” under the article type and then the conference name from a list.
Acceptable manuscript file types are MSWord, LaTeX, and PDF. For the initial submission/review process, a single PDF or MSWord file including the figures is sufficient. However, once a paper is accepted, MSWord or TeX file of the text, any tables and the list of figure captions along with the separate figure files will be required for final production. Use of color in Figures is encouraged. Your FIGURES CAN APPEAR ONLINE IN COLOR FOR FREE.
Prepare illustrations in the final published size, not oversized or undersized.

Manuscript deadline: Deadline for manuscript submission is June 23, 2017.
