    Article in a book:
    Sorenson, P.W. and Caprio, J.C. (1998) Chemoreception. In the Physiology of Fishes, D.H. Evans, ed.
    (Boca Raton, FL: CRC Press), pp. 375-405.

    An entire book:

    Development (New York: Oxford University Press).

IV. Figures (placed in separate subdirectory as outlined in the research article guidelines)

    1. All figures must be in .tif format at 300 dpi. In Photoshop, reset the dpi/resolution to 300 by choosing
    “Image Size” from the “Image” menu. Change the resolution to 300. Save as a “.tif”.

    2. All tables and graphs must be created in EXCEL. Do not make any tables or graphs in Microsoft WORD
    because the resolution is extremely poor.

            a) Make sure EXCEL charts do not have borders: To access the “Format Chart Area,” double-click
            on the chart. Alternately, select the chart, go to the “Format” menu, and choose “Selected chart
            area…” Under the “Colors and Lines” option, make sure that “No line” is selected in the drop-
            down “Color” menu. Click “OK.”

            b) Make sure Excel charts have a white background.

            c) Save the chart as a picture: There are two ways to do this, depending on what version of Excel
            you have. The second option includes directions for a Mac.

                    Select the chart, and copy the chart. Open Photoshop, and select “New.” Photoshop will
                     automatically open a file of the same size as your chart. Change the resolution to 300 dpi
                     when prompted, and then paste your chart into the open document. If for some reason
                     you cannot change the resolution before you paste your chart, select “Image Size” from
                     the “Image” menu, and change the resolution to 300 dpi.
                    Select the chart, right click on the chart, go to “Save as a picture…,” and select the “.tif”
                     format. If you are using a Mac, select the chart, press the “ctrl” button as you click on
                     the chart, and select “Save as a picture…” Be sure to save your file as a “.tif”. Excel will
                     automatically save your image at 72 dpi as the default, but we need at least 300 dpi. Open
                     up the “.tif” file in Photoshop, and reset the dpi. To do this, choose “Image Size” from
                     the “Image” menu, and change the resolution to 300 dpi.

            d) Save the table as a picture: Format the cells in your table with the appropriate borders,
            highlights, etc. Then select (highlight) these cells, copy them, and paste them in a new Photoshop
            document. Reset the dpi by choosing “Image Size” from the “Image” menu. Change the
            resolution to 300 dpi. Save as a “.tif”.

    3. All your graphs, figures, and images should be placed in a separate folder (as outlined in the Research
    Manuscript) including a WORD .doc with appropriately labeled captions or legends (i.e. Figure 1; Table 1.
    Caption1; Legend1)

V. Figure captions

    1. Figure Title: Times New Roman, 8 pt bold.

    2. Caption Text: Times New Roman, 8 pt. (Include in picture-caption folder.)

    Save as “Review_josiebruin.doc” (Review_your first and last name). Submit an electronic file as an
    email attachment to usjUCLA@gmail.com and five printed copies of your manuscript in a manila


                                                    2
         envelope labeled clearly with your Full Name, Email Address, and Phone Number and deliver it to the USJ
         office in LSB 2103. The deadline to submit a manuscript is January 6, 2010.

         Written Consent is required from the source of figures obtained. This can be in the form of an email. This
         consent is necessary for figures from published journals, but is not needed for figures from government
         websites.


Faculty Interviews
Note: Bring a tape recorder to your interview

    I.   Cover Sheet

         1. Name (the way you’d like to be published)

    2. Include a short (~100 words or less) synopsis or bio of the Professor (Times New Roman 11 pt, italicized)

    3. The interview is presented in an integrated format. While the interview should be conducted in question and
    answer format, but the submitted copy must be in paragraph form. (For ideas of the types of questions asked
    please refer to previous issues). Quotations should be in the wording of the interviewees, with grammatical
    corrections and sentence reconstructions when needed. Conversational interjections such as um, well, you see,
    etc. should not be included.

    III. Picture of the professor (bring a camera if needed)

    Ask the faculty member in advance or take a photo of the faculty member after your interview

    IV. The submission format should be the same as outlined in the Research Manuscript (1.Text 2. Picture
           3. Caption).

    Save as “Interview_josiebruin.doc” (Interview_your first and last name). Submit an electronic file as an email
    attachment to usjUCLA@gmail.com and five printed copies of your manuscript in a manila envelope labeled
    clearly with your Full Name, Email Address, and Phone Number and deliver it to the USJ office in LSB 2103.
    The deadline to submit a manuscript is January 6, 2010.
