YOUR MANUSCRIPT AT DE GRUYTER

When you publish with De Gruyter, your content will be published simultaneously in print and electronic formats.

Thus, it will be retrievable by the latest search engines and search technology, CrossRef Forward Linking, bibliographical databases, and abstracting and indexing services.

Your publication will also be hosted on our integrated content platform, making it easy to access and search for the global research community.

ScholarOne, our electronic manuscript submission system, helps save journal and anthology contributors valuable time by accelerating the publication process.

No matter whether you are an author, expert/reviewer, or member of an editorial board, electronic manuscript submission enables convenient access via the Internet and flexible planning options.

So a scientific manuscript may be uniquely assigned to their respective authors, De Gruyter is introducing ORCID, a global standard format. ORCID is a free, not-for-profit service offering each researcher a unique digital identifier. This helps researchers to distinguish their work from works by others with similarnames. Further information to ORCID at De Gruyter.
 

INFORMATION AND TEMPLATES ON PREPARING YOUR MANUSCRIPT

Important guidelines for the drafting of manuscripts as well as for their submission to De Gruyter are available for download in the following table.

Additional instructions (where available) that supplement these general guidelines may apply depending on the specific subject area.

The authors of journal articles should consult the journal‘s homepage first to see if there are specific instructions for manuscript submissions.

In order to help you with compilation of your manuscript (e. g., a monograph or an article) we offer the manuscript template. The template is compatible with Microsoft Office Word 2007 to Word 2013 for Windows and contains basic style formats that fulfill our requirements with respect to structure. The manuscript template uses the system fonts Times New Roman and Arial.

ATTENTION! Please do not use the manuscript template for the creation of the final print PDF (see the section „Information and templates for camera-ready copy (CRC)“ below).

THE DE GRUYTER HOUSESTYLE

The De Gruyter house style characterizes the internal layout of our books and journals. The house style links each of our authors’ works together into a cohesive form and provides them with a distinct corporate identity for a clear and precise typographical layout. It was created in cooperation with renowned design agency Edenspiekermann. The basis element of the De Gruyter typography is the font De Gruyter Meta Science, which were expanded with scientific chars.

To see the style guide with detailed instructions and sample pages of the De Gruyter house style, please browse the table below:

STYLE GUIDE

SAMPLE PAGES

DE GRUYTER META SCIENCE

The Style Guide contains

  • detailed typography
  • layout specifications
  • information on our custom typeface family
  • proper font sizes
  • line spacing.
The Style Guide also explains standard and specific book and journal layouts.

> De Gruyter Style Guide (reduced online version)

The following sample pages demonstrate numerous aspects of the Style Guide in action, including an illustration of each specific format and their associated layout rules.

If you have questions or are uncertain about the use of certain style elements, please contact your editor.

> Sample Pages (Books)
> Sample Pages (Journals)

Our custom typography is based on the typeface family Meta. It features a complete set of Latin, Greek, and phonetic Unicode characters. 

The font is not necessary for the manuscript creation. It will be used at a later stage, e.g. to create a final print PDF (see section „Information and templates for camera-ready copy“).

 

INFORMATION AND TEMPLATES FOR CAMERA-READY COPY (CRC)

To help you create the final print PDF according to the De Gruyter Style Guide, we developed Word, LaTeX and InDesign templates. 

Please note that the fonts of DG Meta Science are necessary for the generation of the final print PDF via the templates. After conclusion of the publishing contract with De Gruyter you will receive the template package including the font DG Meta Science from your contact at De Gruyter.
